I started smoking 4 years ago... and haven't been able to stop since.

I must've tried to quit like over 10 times already, and promised myself I'd quit 100+ times. My record is 2 weeks, although I was taking CBD oil at the time. Without CBD oil I can't even go 24 hours without triggering a manic episode.

My biggest hindrance thus far has been my job; it requires a great deal of physical activity and focus. But I figured I haven't been employed in over 2 months now, so I might as well try to quit before I start a new career. Who knows, maybe the break would motivate me to actually get my shit together? It was that fucking job that made me feel like smoking every day to begin with. (stress)

I have a few cigarette tubes containing a little bit of weed which I have stretched out using mullein and catnip, no tobacco. Each cigarette contains a bit of twice-vaped ABV, and an even smaller amount of ground sativa bud. I get high from smoking one, but I don't get high-high. You know?

Once I run out of those I will remove the weed and keep smoking the plain mullein and catnip (I really like smoking, even if there's no effect. I just like moving smoke around in my mouth. Hate vaping though.) This way I can transition much easier.

I have also bought a new swimsuit and goggles and cap so I can do swimming as my exercise. I believe exercise to be absolutely crucial to happy sobriety.

Then, when I feel like it, I will start smoking again. I don't know when this will be though; I hear it takes months for weed to clear the system. It may have to be longer than a month, otherwise I may just fall right back into the daily habit.

I'll be coming back to this thread every now and again, but let's talk about tips for staving withdrawal in the meantime!

Also fuck off if you're one of those "weed is not addictive" people. Seriously, kill yourselves, I don't give a fuck about you.

Fuck you dude. I bet your mommy and daddy make you watch them have sex with each other and if you're a good boy they let you join in. When you're done getting fucked by your own parents you go off to do a bunch of heroin so you can suck dicks and get paid for it to buy more heroin. Then I bet you go and jerk off your little wiener to nascar videos while eating McDonalds and talking down to strangers on the internet despite being the world's biggest, fattest loser with no job, no friends and no future.

Literally not a single person in this world likes you. Kill yourself. >>4934595

Easiest way to quit that I have found is to take a trip or vacation, preferably somewhere where weed is harder to get than at home. If its a good trip you probably wont even think about smoking, and once you get back you will have already reset your habit and detoxed enough that you wont feel the cravings (or at least not as badly). Only downside is that this method does require a bit of planning and investment, but you can think of all that money you will be saving by not having to buy weed again so in the long run it evens out.

This won't work for me. I have heard from many every day smokers that they had to go a month without weed accidentally due to being in a country where it was illegal, and it was the worst month of their lives. They all went back to smoking.

For me, there has to be habitual changes. Otherwise I'll fall right back into old habits the moment I'm back in Canada.

Also, what part of I haven't been employed in over 2 months went over your head? I can't afford a damn vacation.

You think you can come on /weed/ and just spout a bunch of bullshit like that? You think nobody here knows what marijuana is like? Do you even know how cannabinoids affect your body? Manic episodes after 24 hours? Jesus christ man.

This has got to be the worst troll/shill ever. Nobody will take you seriously.

Hes just overreacting. I've had similar feelings from trying to quit after smoking all day everyday. Its not manic episodes (unless hes literally bipolar) but I know what hes talking about, its a feeling of losing control.

>>4934600
Yeah I did miss the part about you being unemployed. How are you affording to buy weed then? Also are you around other people who smoke a lot? If so, you may need to cut them out of your life, at least for a while. Nothing worse than trying to quit while everyone around you is still smoking. You do have one thing right, you will need to change your habits big time if you are going to make it, and its going to be hard if the things you enjoy usually involve weed.

I am literally bipolar. Diagnosed last year.

>How are you affording to buy weed then?
In the grand scheme of things, weed is not that expensive. I can afford it easily with the $75 dollars the government sends me once a month + a bit of my savings. I get an ounce for $100 and that lasts me 3 weeks to a month if I stick to dry herb vape, which is what I do. Way less than the $300 a month I used to pay to be able to drink every day.

>Also are you around other people who smoke a lot? If so, you may need to cut them out of your life, at least for a while. Nothing worse than trying to quit while everyone around you is still smoking.
I have like 2-3 friends who are still stoners. Most of my friends are alcoholics, although some of them have started to quit, including myself. Yeah I don't plan on seeing the stoner ones for awhile. One of the main reasons I want to quit is because conversations go nowhere while high, most people just get super philosophical about nothing and it's annoying to listen to. Even I get annoying and can't shut up when I smoke. Weed is NOT a 'social drug'. Caffeine is a social drug.

>its going to be hard if the things you enjoy usually involve weed.
Definitely nothing in particular I do needs to involve weed. I get no pleasure from smoking anymore; I do it just because I need to, I combine it with my hobbies like making music or watching The Wire and it enables me to stay seated long enough to get shit done. Not sure how I'm gonna get any music done for the next couple of days, or weeks, or even months...

OP here. Withdrawal is starting. It begins with a tingling, confused feeling at the back of the head. The homemade cigarette I smoked 30 minutes ago must have been one that I forgot to add the sativa into because I don't feel anything from it. I may take a dropper of THC tonight so I can get some sleep; my mornings are usually amazing when I'm still feeling the residual effects of the tinctures. I need the sleep so I can cogently sign up for the gym tomorrow... that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

OP I went absolutely bonkers when I stopped smoking weed recently. Trashed my room. Shatpost all over 420chan and other parts of the web. Called the police when people came to check on the noise because I thought they were goimg to hurt me. Now my guess is that I was fucking nuts before I started smoking, and I had just kind of been using cannabis to sedate myself. I'm not nuts anymore. I feel okay now it's been about a week.

Omg ur so overly dramatic theres no such thing as marijuana withdrawal ur so stupid nobody's gonna take u srsly >:(

Nah but seriously, I believe it. Shitposting is probably my favourite thing to do during recovery. It gives me hope to know that you're okay after a week.

And yeah, I was nuts before I started smoking and weed kinda made me normal up to a point. I think long-term it just made me more nuts, though.

if i smoked under a gram a day i am unable to sleep or eat. im poor af atm, its day 2 of no weed (by no weed i mean i just had scraps to smoke, under half a gram) havent eaten in two days and dont feel like it. last time i was this sober i didnt sleep for a week but i took dph to get to sleep yesterday. when ur smoking atleast a few grams a day most days you do start to get some kinda shiotty withdrawls, although purely psycological rather then physical (no tremors or sweats or flu symptoms as you would see in someone going off a physically addictive drug) but not being able to sleep for a week gets to ya.

people certainly underestimate psychological addiction, good luck anon, godspeed. i doubt ill ever quit as it clears up alot of problems that ive had my whole life prior to smoking (insomnia, disordered eating, and too much videogame escapism) although i plan on cutting down to be using it only as a sleep aid rather then a 24/7 deal

I think weed affects people with bipolar/add differently than others. The only real weed addicts I've met were bipolar or ADD, including myself. Although for me it doesn't really seem like an addiction, more of a choice because being high just makes my life better. When sober my depression is so bad that I can't do anything. That isn't a rebound effect from weed or anything, it's just my default personality, I've been sober for years and in deep depression, also been high on weed and in deep depression, but it's easier to tolerate and less severe thanks to weed. Weed is a medicine for certain things and if you're using it to treat yourself it's not like you're addicted you're just medicating. You don't say people are addicted to their blood pressure meds or whatever. It's only an addiction imo if being high all the time makes your life worse off than you would be if you were dead sober all the time. That's what happens with most drugs because they fuck you up after using them for a long time. Weed doesn't really fuck you up, it just costs you money.

That, and having an urge to smoke. But that urge does go away after a couple of weeks at the most.

Am actually on a break myself right now, 7 days in. SHTF at work today, mad stressful. Really felt like smoking but finally decided not to. Proud over that.

I relate to a lot of what you're describing. I've self-medicated through a severe depressive episode (when I finally saw a psychiatrist, they considered admitting me because I had suicidal thoughts + a previous attempt the month before getting help). It definitely became more tolerable, the racing/spiraling negative thoughts quieted down whenever I got high. However, I only recovered from the depression thanks to therapy and going on SSRIs for 10 weeks.

Weed is a great way to manage depression and anxiety, but I doubt anybody would say it CURES them.

Yall.ake me laugh that cbd probably laced with spice or synthetic thc.
I used to blaze flower in a vape and eat edibles never went thru a withdrawl from weed. Now opioids were a true withdrawl and alcohol.

Also just vaped some fire hash oil and feel so damn high thanks to drinkin matcha tea

Feels good that weed and hash oil doesnt cause withdrawls I quit vaping hash oil fora year and felt good.

Have a fun song homies.

Replacing it with exercise is a good method IMO. Gives you a rush to look forward to that you can feel good about since it puts you on a path to greater health. I cut down my smoking from multiple times daily to just weekends and I think having recently started exercising helped get over the mental hump of wanting to be stoned all the time.
