I've taken tolerance breaks for up to 2-2.5 weeks and I start to feel like I used to, but I can't find any data on if neuroreceptors will return to their normal baseline with enough time.

Greetings /detox/.

After really admitting to myself how badly my alcohol addiction was affecting other aspects of my life, I have made a serious decision to stop usage for a while. I am going to document my journey in this thread to amuse the bored, encourage those who may be dealing with similar problems, and to keep myself focused and honest. If I slip up I will be honest as well.

Little background:
>Duration of alcoholism: 8 years
>Frequency of consumption: 5-7 days per week with no period of abstinence longer than 2 days
>Amount consumed per day: ~7oz of ethanol in an evening
>Affected aspects of life: work, school, relationships, hobbies, mental and physical health

I am currently on my fourth day with no alcohol and I am already seeing and feeling notable improvements in my body and mind. I will go over how each day felt.

>First 24 Hours
By far the worst. Not only from the withdrawals, but the knowledge that booze is not coming any time soon. Sweating, shaking hands, lack of appetite, insomnia, flushed skin, increased blood pressure, irritability, dark and disturbing dreams when sleep comes in fits

The last thread isn't bumping since it's beyond the post limit. So, time for a new thread.

How long have you been sober and what reasons do you have for quitting drug(s). For those who are completely sober from said drug or drugs, how has your life changed?

As for me, I've been on suboxone for a few days now. My outlook on life is becoming positive compared to when I was popping pills. I'm still smoking weed and that's the extent of my current drug use. Everyday gets easier and easier. I hope for the best and will put the time and the effort in to better myself as a person.

Been clean from opiates for well over 2 years now. Trying to quit the cigarettes now. On my second day without one, I'm getting there. Drinking lots of water is helping. Can't wait for the cravings to stop though. The withdrawal symptoms themselves are barely noticeable, it's just the cravings. I think most of it is a mental thing though.

I have been smoking weed daily for about 3 years until ive stopped due to panic attacks and anxiety three months ago. I was also drinking rather frequently which escalated into drinking myself to sleep every day for a year or so. I am Not drinking daily anymore, but I still binge drink once a week. Now I make illogical af decisions, have trouble remembering simple things in my job and daily life and I am in an almost constant state of anxiety and paranoia. I drift off to suicidal thoughts instead of focusing on reality and it makes it hard to concentrate on what I am doing in that moment.

That's my current situation and I need to recover as much as possible because I cant live Like this anymore. Any advice that might hell?

stop drinking entirely and go to a doctor and get your vitamin levels checked if possible

daily alcohol use severely dehydrates you and fucks with your head for sure, im speaking from personal experience. Your diet could be what is causing your memory issues.

OP I've been there, and I think that you have some underlying mental health issues. Lots of peoples drug and alcohol habits stem from trying to self med particularly for anxiety and depression.

You've done really well quitting weed for three months and cutting down on alcohol but I'd recommend quitting that too and finding yourself a therapist. It takes a long time to heal, your body is just now clearing up from the weed, give it time. Working through anxiety and depression or whatever is also going to take time, but I promise as you do your brain function will improve.

In the meantime if you want a healthy mind you need to clean up your body and your life in general. Clean your room, put as much structure into your day as possible. Get some exercise. Make sure you're eating right, drinking lots of water, getting enough sleep, and just take care of yourself OP.

I have stopped drinking and had a huge vitamin intake the past 5 days or so. Also using ashwaganda for my anxiety issues. I am feeling much better already. It's a Monday and I am having fun at work. My memory isn't 100% there but I'm positive about it becoming better soon. More food and sleep also play a part in all this. Thank you guys for giving me another perspective on my condition, I thought my brain is fucked for good.

Lesson learned: don't underestimate the risks of alcohol and weed.

For someone whos been clean that long, how long should it take me to be able to pass a piss test?

also the piss test I will be taking is very sensitive, it's for a government level job if that's at all relevant. I have about another two-three months before I actually have to take it.

I'm stopping weed tomorrow completely after 5 years of daily vaping abuse

I was able stop for 50 days before so I know what to expect I had a mixture of the following:

  • depression (gray pointless outlook of life )
  • social anxiety
  • lack of humour and timing
  • easily fatigued
  • unable to sleep at times
  • night sweats

I want to lessen these withdrawal symptoms by doing the following:

  • find a support group (haven't found one yet)

I would recommend some kratom. A white strain during the day should help the depression and a red strain at night to help with sleep. You don't need much, a cup of white in the morning, a cup of red at night, 2-3 grams of powdered leaf in each cup of tea. Don't use it daily for more than the first two weeks of withdrawal, but after that you can use it weekly without worrying much about dependence...It won't compensate for the psychological addiction aspect of weed completely if you're anything like me as weed is more psychologically addictive than anything else for some reason but it will act as a nice buffer to get you out of the woods.

Been well over 2 weeks. The symptoms are not so bad. None of the listed symptoms have plagued me.

I think fasting, exercise and meditation really help with that.

I think the true test is when I come back to school, the stress level will be noticeably higher, but I think I can manage.

Been drinking a lot of lemon water for the detox as well. I am also more confident and less paranoid. But I'm still a bit impatient in social situations though thats probably not weed related, probably aggravated by withdrawals.

Here's to a crutch-free life.

If it's withdrawal/DTs then 4 days to a week before she's relatively normal. But I'm guessing she's gonna be on pain meds for awhile, making her loopy.
Pancreatitis is incredibly painful, can last anywhere between a few days to weeks. Glad she's got medical help though

wasn't sure whether to post this on /weed/ or here but i guess it makes more sense here for now. I've been smoking pretty much all day erry day for 4 months and i am planning on taking a break for awhile but i have always in the past been super susceptible to the withdrawal from cannabis. Now im not saying that cannabis does not have one of the most mild and benign withdrawals i just use to fuck around with /opi/s and use to have to deal with dope sickness alot and now when i stop smoking weed i get what seems to be exaggerated withdrawals similar to the ones i used to get years ago. I was thinking if i had CBD supplements from the health food store i could take them for the first few days or so as a way to maybe ease some of the initial discomfort, would that possibly work? the CBD capsules contain like barely any THC and are completely non-psychoactive. Has anyone had any similar experiences?

OP here, didn't expect this thread to get this many replies but im glad this board is decently active. This thread has changed my perspective on cannabis addiction a little bit. i'm still in the middle of my weaning process, i ran out a few days ago and was gonna say fuck it and go cold turkey but after reading some of these responses i decided i really needed to limit my smoking gradually over a couple weeks at the least, also it made me realize i'm more dependent on cannabis then i thought, so i've started lowering my usage more and more every few days so by the time i come to the end of my current stash (less then an 8th) i can be already used to being sober throughout the majority of my day again

I tapered down like was suggested and i still had these ashwaganda CBD supplements laying around so i've been taking two every morning which may also be helping.

A few weeks ago I did a gram of meth within 24 hours two times, no tolerance either time. The worst part was when I did about 0.6g within 4 or 5 hours (snorted and orally) Now I'm incredibly paranoid and anxious about everything and life feels horrible all the time. I also feel stupid, really fucking stupid and forgetful compared to how I used to be just prior to these insane doses. How long will this last?

Hey detox. I was wondering, what are some ways I can either reduce or completely eliminate my cigarette smoking? Should I buy a vape? Should I try to wear a nicotine patch for a while? I've been trying to quit for a month now and can't seem to pull it off. I'm only able to go for at most 2 hours without lighting up another one. I'm not planning on going cold turkey like that other thread's OP, and just so you know I'm smoking American Spirits and have been able to get myself off of the heavy black packs before, it's just hard to fully quit. I know saying they're American Spirits is just an excuse when I'm smoking every hour to hour and a half so it could still cause some damage. I really need some tips.

No it's not bupropion or anything related to the NRT pharms, the government gets plenty of money with NRT to replace the money they lose with the waning tobacco tax. It's a piperidine with a cyclohexyl ring incorporated into it. The government will absolutely ban something that cuts through the profits obtained through pharma but will come up with a bullshit excuse to ban said substances under the guise of protecting its countries citizens...I know, this isn't /tinfoil/ and it's all conspiracy and the government is completely honest and transparent ;)

I read this book 10 days ago, actually I read it twice.... This book is absolutely amazing.

OP dont go fooling yourself that you need to cut down, start vaping or using patches. What you need is to unbrainwash yourself and realize nicotine for what it really is, a prison

Cutting down on nicotine only makes it worse, unless your willpower is almost superhuman. So read the book and just stop. You're not sacrificing anything by stopping, you only gain good things (with the right attitude, and this book helps you)
