    The first 7 days are the worst for me but normally feel much better as each day passes.

    Nice! I saw your post at the other thread. I hope the two of you reach your goals together. That 60-day chart is a great idea. Get your new buddy to make one for him/herself. GOOD LUCK!

    Thanks Hyzer ... I also think the chart is a great touch and it really does help ... the more crosses you have on the chart the more reason you have not to smoke.

    I've messaged that other person ... just waiting on a reply.

    My main focus now while doing this is to start making serious money crypto day trading

    Peace

    Almost 24hrs in without any cannabis and my body aches, eyes feel heavy but my mid is racing ... it's like I'm having a battle going on inside my head trying to rationalise a reason to get some.

    I mean I had 1 joint last night but it was a 2g blunt (silvers) wish I'd smoked it like this all the time instead of using tobacco with it.

    Everything is definitely boring without being high ... can't find any enjoyment watching tv .. I'm broke as I'm waiting to start a new job,

    Reckon tonight is going to be quite hard.

    4th of July in the U.S. yesterday. Lotta of folks doing things.

    Hope your night was not anywhere near as bad as you were thinking it could be. One day into quitting, so your first sentence above is no surprise and "battle" is a good word to use. All those symptoms and the boredom will wane as the battle is fought. If your past history repeats, then your battle should ease a lot in a week or so. You can do it! Stiff upper lip as they say in your land. Join that gym, take that country walk. When you suck it up and do something positive, even if 99% of you says "just sit here and worry, etc" you WILL feel better and the biggest benefit is that it will have been without getting stoned. I'll be thinking about you all day...in a positive way.

    Hi .... oh yes I forgot it was a day of celebrations, my night was long and couldn't really get into tv ... I slept okay except for waking a few times soaked with sweat (eww)

    Today I met an old friend who had a doob ... I crumbled and had 3 puffs .. and thought it's not worth it it's a slippery slope, and handed it back ... so I failed a little.

    However I'm still determined ... thank you and I Appreciate it ... I will keep everyone updated.

    Obviously you're experiencing that tug of war of "I want to quit" vs "I want to get high". I've read a few posts where it's the worst when you get high but cannot enjoy it because you're angry that you got high, but then when you're not high you're angry because you wish you were. That's crazy but maybe what needs to happen to finally get off the merry-go-round. All I am wishing for you is a place of long term well-being whatever your choices are. I think quitting and getting through it is the shortest path to that place but you know yourself best and will move on wisely. Postive thoughts for you!

    I can certainly relate to this thread, everything feels joyless and boring at the moment, I’m 17 days clean.

    One of the great things that I gained from being free of cannabis is to sit with and not struggle with uncomfortable or negative thoughts and feelings. There is certainly a trick for not hooking up on these thoughts, not getting involved with them, and not struggling (it makes you feel so much worse). One thing is for sure. These feelings are transient and they will pass.

    In order to defuse your thoughts, it can be helpful to say to yourself 'I am having the thought that. . . ' or 'I am noticing that I am making the judgment that. . ' Do you notice that saying that in your head gives you some distance? Gives them less power?

    It is not that these thoughts are 'wrong' or 'bad'. It is just that I daresay they are not getting you closer to vitality and so they are not helpful.

    'Thanks mind! This is the story that life is boring and dull now and nothing feels good.' I know this old story and this too shall pass. :-) xx

    I'm a daily smoker and have had almost no intention of quitting. But, I just got hired for a job that I'm really excited about, both because its something I want to do and because Ive been unemployed for quite a while. As soon as they offered me the job (even though they said it was "contingent on reference checks and a Corre report"), I told everyone I knew about my new job and a lot of people are excited for me. Suddenly, though, while waiting for all the paperwork to process, it occurred to me that, even though they haven't mentioned it, they could hit me with a drug-test before I am able to officially start the job. I would be humiliated and terribly disappointed if I lost this opportunity because I couldn't pass a drug test, so I decided to quit smoking cold-turkey and start flushing my system with lots of water, just in case, figuring that once I'm in the clear I'll smoke again.

    Doesn't sound like it should be that hard, but as soon as I decided to "take a break," I became more aware of how dependent I am on marijuana.

    The first day I "wasn't going to smoke", I caved as soon as hung out with one of my smoker friends. Then the anxiety about failing the drug test heightened, so I made a firmer resolution. The first day that I REALLY didn't smoke was hard, harder than I expected. I keep reaching for my pipe, longing for it, missing it. Everything seems so profoundly BORING to me. Life seems so dull and bland. Its like all of the vibrant and interesting thoughts I experienced when I was high have been replaced by a dull hum. The colors have turned to gray. I feel like my brain activity is minimal and I'm just shuffling through boring daily activities, without any sense of mental expansion or creative inspiration.

    I'm on day 3. Sucky as it is, its not nearly as bad as when I tried to quit smoking tobacco, because the cravings aren't physical. The nicotine cravings allowed me to talk myself into "just a puff," which of course turned into "just one cigarette" and then I was a smoker again. I remain anxious about the possible drug test, so I am determined not to undermine my chances with this job. But I wonder if what I am experiencing is just withdrawal, or if life without weed really is just much more boring??
    Not boring, but more fun! Gray and boring gives everything your subconscious and your craving for smoking! When you get rid of this addiction, you’ll just **** up how cool it is to live without cannabis!
