    Thanks, William. You are right, I did succeed. As of three days ago, I am three years clean!! I can't really believe that :-)
    It is so amazing though. I wouldn't give up my freedom for the world.

    How is your quit going? What stage are you up to?

    Three years clean wow! That is awesome Alice! Many congratulations, the first few years are definitely the toughest and after that I found at least that not using just became much more part of everyday life again, that does mean you don't have to be on guard and mindful of avoiding the same pitfalls that brought you to where you were before but at least now you are much more aware of what they are and able to keep a watchful eye on avoiding them.


    I honestly believe that rehab is a long term evolving process that often takes a little bit longer than most probably expect to see it's fullest rewards and once you do like you say, you don't want to trade your new found freedom for the world.


    Keep up the good work!

    Thanks so much CRA :-)
    It is so nice to really experience what it is like to live cannabis free. And I think you are right. It can take some time to appreciate just how rewarding life can be without cannabis. I loved that about quitting. After the initial withdrawal, it was like a gift that kept on giving for quite some time, years even!

    I do have to stay vigilant of some things. I haven't really been tested with the peer pressure test as yet. I think if I were hanging around old friends who still smoke occasionally, it would be more difficult. Thankfully, as we get older, the peer pressure thing becomes less likely. I still hope that I would have the presence of mind to remind myself that some kind of 'party smoke' would just get me back on the hamster wheel, and not do it.

    It is a bit weird that I have had two episodes of mental illness in the past six months, which is two more than the none I had in the five years previous to that. I do wonder if some ingredient in cannabis helps to keep me out of psychosis, but the better news is that I recover more quickly and do a lot less damage without cannabis in my life.

    All in all, I am very happy to be sitting here on the other side, without addiction really being a part of my life at all!

    Thanks again for your support. I can't believe that you have been free for 13 years!! That really is something :-)

    CBD's are known to have a anti anxiety and anti pychotic effect for some, it's the THC that has the opposite effect for most and one of the biggest problems with most modern day weed which is very high in THC compared to CBD. You can get CBD oils and capsules without THC and legally in many countries now including here in the UK.


    If you genuinely feel it has that effect on you then if you are able you could always use it as you feel necassary or in the event of an epsiode to see if it helps. It's not saying you would have to use it regulary if you felt it was the right choice for you, I guess views are probably quite divided on whether it is a good idea or not after having quit. Genuine medicinal use though is in fairness a different thing to recreational. Yes 13 years, where does the time go, still IMO it was the right decision for me.


    All the best,

    Hi there Admin :-)
    It is interesting to read about the difference between CBD and THC. I might try some CBD medicinally, although I am not sure how willing my doctor would be to prescribe it!
    Although I am not at all interested in the mess that would ensue if I were to start smoking again, it might be THC that creates that mess.
    I should definitely read more about it in any case. Maybe taking CBD would not trigger cravings for smoking cannabis, in which case, it would definitely be worth a shot.
    Thanks so much for your thoughts :-)
    Hope its been a good 13 years. Wish I could say the same ;-)
    Cheers,
    Alice!
