    Default Day 5 aswell

    Hey guys im also on day 5 , 19 years old weigh 125 lbs 5'7 . ive been smoking for a total of 5 years , but about 4 years consistently from wake until sleep. I'd probably go through close to an eighth a day and on the weekends maybe even a bit more. I decided to stop 5 days ago cold turkey because im sick of the haze it has out me in. Ive always LOVED weed the culture, the social aspect , every little thing about it im a known stoner in my town and ive always glorified weeds attributes to everyone and anyone defending it until the grave. I have no pre existing anxiety ( that i know of? Lol) but around 2 months ago i started developing anxious like thoughts to the point where id begin to have attacks and just feel totally out of it. I tried blaming everything but weed , and i just couldn't put a damn finger on what else it could be . life has always been super awesome to me i have an amazing family, a tremendous amount of friends , a very loving girlfriend and an amazing job opportunity lined up for me . So where this anxiety came from i have absolutely no clue . Ive always been (IMO) an extremely deep thinker i have dabbled with psychedelics , but not in a long while so i know its not contributed to this anyhow i have never ever feared a thought or the way i viewed the world until a month ago i began overthinking every thought getting scared of my own ideals and eventually thinking very irrationally . After a while of this and continuing to chronically smoke i decided that it had been the weed after a few hearty Derbs of some fresh colorado shatter. I woke up and put down the ganj. Since then my anxiety has almost ceased to exist . Since day 1 i have felt clear headed and 10x better than i had while smoking .. Its un real i can assess my thoughts and finally put them back into perspective . Ive expierenced little no withdrawal besides appetite and the occasionally boredom but thats only because i have been sitting around watching South Park LOL . Ive always had incredibly vivid dreams so the dreams to me are nice and i enjoy having them back full force. I'm not sure why i am not expierencing the withdrawals the way some are . Im able to sleep, and interact completely normally the only symptom i seem to have is a wave or two of feeling a slight lingering anxiety anyhow , very excited for the future if im feeling this good at day 5 who knows how I'll feel at day 30, 40, 50?! Drugs are not the answer my friends being sober is the best drug of all hang in there everyone and stay POSITIVE . You have to make a serouise mental decision that it in fact IS impacting you negatively if you over use. Weed is an excellent source of medicine for some , and an awesome recreation for others in moderation but over doing any thing is quite awful for you physically and mentally. Hang in there guys drink water and take vitamins ! I take b complex aswell as fish oil daily for the last month . Also good tip if you find yourself craving go down and grab yourself some quality CBD oil will stop all cravings in there tracks goodluck to all lets beat this bullshit aye?

    THE TRICK IS TO KEEP DRINKING TEA. I'm on day 5 and I'm doing awesome. I could fall asleep earlier, and stay asleep longer, but I do get decent sleep. I've tried quitting in the past and have been able to quiet for 9 months once. I've learned that sometimes what is coded as a craven, is really discomfort from gas or being dehydrated or hungry. TEA IS YOUR BEST FRIEND - TRUST ME. When we get discomfort we usually crave that which we use for comfort. Tea keeps you relaxed and comforted at all times. Just try it. I ONLY USE CAFEEN FREE TEA - does not matter the type - JUST DRINK TEA.

    I find drinking tea throughout the day, a lot o water and making sure you eat even a little at a time.

    The tea really helps with relaxation and hydration while managing gas as many people are unable to eat.

    Good to hear that you have found something that helps.

    I am a huge tea fan as well. I used it as a reward when I was quitting. It worked for me too. Now, I have tins of the most beautiful Lapsang Souchong, Earl Grey, Rooibos, Pomegranate, Chai leaves. There is nothing more satisfying.

    Cool Day 6 pick up stix

    Oh, ok so day 7 tomorrow. Iíve quit before for about 4 years when I was 17-21. Best decision of my life at that time. At 22, I started smoking weed again. Now 31, I absolutely hate weed. Canít socialize, paranoia, health issues, lack of motivation etc. itís really sad because there are a lot of people who have addictive personalities and I fall into that category.

    Iíve had the sweats, chills, massive headaches, anger, resentment, no libido, all side effects. I can tell you that it gets easier. I plan on quitting for many years but she always gets ya back, doesnít she?

    Hey there,

    Good luck with your quit. You are right, it does get easier, and there even becomes a point when it doesn't have any kind of psychological or physical pull whatsoever, any more. It is great.

    Another member of the group NowRNever is about at the same stage of her quit as you. I would suggest messaging her or otherwise getting in touch on the forum, because perhaps you will be able to support each other.

    I think you are doing a great thing. Good luck!

    Cheers,
    Alice

    Default Day 5 of the rest of my life

    Hey there,

    I'm currently on day 5 without cannabis and it has been quite the ride thus far from mental fog, confusion, headaches, night sweats, chills, no libido, crying, etc. you get the picture. But I can honestly tell you that I have accepted these symptoms as part of the "re-boot" and that awareness (symptoms of the re-boot) has helped me and strengthened me.

    While I was smoking I started to feel lost, stuck, unmotivated by life and knew that was not the person I was inside and had to check myself. I'm also on day 32 of no alcohol, and day 46 of no nicotine. I guess I'm going through a cleanse toward tabula rasa with my mind and body, in a sense.

    I have found my higher power is walking and writing, although sometimes my writing doesn't make sense because of the mental fog, haha, but it's all good, I can be patient with that because I'm ready to stop my decade addiction to the green.

    Jah provides if you are ready and willing to go through the process toward clarity. Good luck to all out there, reading all of your stories has helped me and gave me courage to share my journey; even though it's just starting.

    Peace and Blessings!

    Hey Eskimo,

    Thanks for sharing your story. It is really encouraging.

    I think you are amazing to give up alcohol and cigarettes and cannabis at the same time. So glad that you stepped them out a bit, but I wish you the VERY BEST of luck for your new life.

    If you have any problems with withdrawals, don't hesitate to post on the forum. I find that it can be a good distraction.

    Cheers,
    Alice

    To the question pertaining to quitting tobacco and weed, for sure! I'm on that journey now, also there are some really knowledgeable senior cannabis rehaber's that have already been free of both for years! so lots of great info and forums already on the site, just search tobacco or cigarettes and you'll find some great insight and inspiration! Good luck!

    Default Day 5

    Glad Iíve found this,as I to am on my fifth day of being pot free. 25 years of cannabis addiction and at 44 years old itís time to get a grip of my life. Thing is I love weed and my life has revolved around it. Iíve lost everything through it including my son , past relationships and even jobs. Iíve basically been a lazy,selfish person and not done anything with my life. Iíve used weed to block out depression and the traumas Iíve been through. I must be so weak minded to have hidden behind a weed! My mental state isnít to good at the moment going through the withdrawals and not sleeping. Feeling very agitated and angry and all I can think about is vaping some of that smelly green cheese to put me to sleep !! I really hope I can get to a week then I know Iím on the road to recovery. Iíve just drunk half a bottle of Jack Daniels and still feel sober! If there is anyone who can help me,please drill some knowledge into my Dope ridden mind. Thanks

    Hi Chris,

    Hang in there! I know that it is hard at the beginning, but it is just a case of a bit of short term pain for long term gain. From the perspective of being quit for nearly two years, it is so incredibly worth it, so stick with it!!

    Although it is tempting to vape to get rid of the withdrawal symptoms, the only real way to be free of this addiction once and for all is to completely exclude it from your life. I mean nothing, Not One Puff Ever - NOPE for short. The only way to get free of the withdrawals and the addiction that is making you think that another puff would be a good idea, is to abstain for a period longer than three months. After that time, the psychological pull is so much less and it is a lot easier.

    It does get easier before then, of course. I found that at about six weeks things started to improve dramatically, but I guess we are all different.

    Reward yourself with small non cannabis treats and read, read, read and write. It is a good distraction and helps to keep you in a positive mindset.

    Cheers,
    Alice
