Wanna quit....
    #3076939 - 09/01/04 06:22 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I've been a daily pot smoker for the last 8 years. I've now reached a point where I really want to quit. But after years of drug use ,all I have is friends that are users and dealers. So it's almost impossible for me to avoid it. I have been sober for a few days now, the 1st time is years. I know once I take one hoot I'll be in the up/down cycle again. My roomate is comming home tomarrow, and I know it's gonna be really hard not to take a blast. I've also been drinking, and doing coke alot as well lately. People always come over with booze, weed, and coke. Any tips???

I've kinda been avoiding my friends so I can stay sober. But once he gets home, the house will be a haze like always. I feel like a have wasted the last 8 years by being slave to all these different highs. I will always use mushrooms though, because I don't abuse them, like I do other drugs. It would just be nice to get to know the sober me for a while....

I was into meth for a long time, my boss, coworkers, friends..everybody I knew was into it as well. Finally when I decided enough was enough and I stopped. It was hard with everyone around me doing it.I wanted to stop bad enough so I did. I just recently moved to a new state. I thought the move would help me in a way as far as getting away from the dr00gs. Man was I wrong, it's just as bad over here. I do still get high...but I steer clear away from the meth. It's everywhere over here, but I'm strong-willed enough to reject it.
Good luck with it...you can do it!

there is a lot that you can do lose your friends and contacts that are into it. make goals each day that will help you get through the day without having to have any. once you complete a goal make it stand for 2 or 3 days instead of just one. once you complete these goals you will feel better about yourself and what you have acheived and make the goal even more long term then the last. move somewhere that you don't have any contacts stay away from the drug culture. there is lots you can do every little bit helps.
or you see the patterns and cycles in your life at the moment and break them do something else besides drugs that you enjoy something that is positive, maybe wrigting or painting, something creative or excercise. try everything once you found your groove stick with it be sure of yourself that you can do this. not only is it a bad habit its pretty bad for you health mentally, physically.
just take one day at a time
create something for yourself that you enjoy
create positive thoughts that can get you through the day
look at other ways to deal with emotions
think how much better you will feel with a clear head and find a greater direction in life
and don't be too hard on yourself if you slip up its to be expected but just catch yourself next time when you see yourself heading down that road again

I had to lose a lot of friends. That's why I have so much time for BB' boards.

I can sum it up in one sentence.

One day you will just stop.

I wish I could tell you what causes this day to happen, or what can be said to trigger it. But at one point most people just think 'enough is enough'

Thanks for all the postive replys guys. All my friends are at the bar right now. I didn't smoke or drink all day. I almost did a line of blow, but changed my mind at the last second. I went to the bar with them, but It got boring being sober, and watching them all get trashed. I feel real good inside that i stuck to my word today. I'll take one day at a time, just like u guys said to.

If they are not willing to stop bringing those substances that you want no part of around, then they are not really friends, are they? That, to me, is a total lack of respect.

Like someone's sig said...

"Psychadelics...my anti-drug!"

:smile: Good luck and remember it's all a state of mind. Just be strong my friend.

I had to move states and drop people in my life who were not helping me attain peace of mind and body. It took many years to finally stop 'the urge' an a few mistakes here and there.

Needless to say, the people I left behind were for the most part, bad. I learned quickly who was a true friend and who was not.

I made it another day being sober. My friends are off drinking and smoking at my one friends house. They said "Why do you wanna stay sober at home by yourself?? Don't be suck a loser, come get trashed" But the truth is, im not alone I'm having a great time on this BB, with a bunch of great people. Thanks for all the postive reply's everyone you are really helping me out alot.

SWM: your right about avoiding the bars, it's hard as hell to be sober around a bunch of drunk/stoned people.

Dude, this may not be helpful. I don't know. But, I used to drink copious amounts of alcohol every day. For, like, 3 years. I've recently gotten treated for depression with SSRIs.
I was never able to get my hands on consistent drugs, so it was just booze for me.
I'm here at this site, so obviously I haven't given up. But since getting on SSRIs--for an acute stretch of depression--I've noticed that "ping" or that nerve in the back of my head that would keep firing and make me want to booze, well, that impulse is gone now.
My personality is not changed. It's just the impulse; the compulsion.
If you think you *may* be depressed or have another mental disorder, but don't think it's "enough" to be treated, go to a doc if you can and discuss it with him/her. I never thought it was enough, what I was experiencing. And I had misconceptions about taking SSRIs. I'm not a stepford wife now. The meds I'm on make me normal again. There is a biological reason for how I was feeling. It's so night and day; incapacitated vs. functioning, that things are very clear to me now. I'm doing so much better now.
HOWEVER, I will say that it took an acute depressive bout to make me seek help. Looking back, I realize my brain is structured such that I was very prone to depression, probably had low-grade depression for several years, and this made me drink all the time.
I don't know man, think it over. Good luck. And, it may hurt, but fuck those people who keep getting high around you. Once you're off for awhile and away from that environment, it will just sort of become...irrelevant.
Again, best of luck.

Sage advice!


Take up an intense recreational sport. Karate and Judo may not be for everyone, but there are others that require that level of concentration and dedication. I know from watching racquetball I could never hang with those guys stoned.
Try going to a martial arts class high and you will get tooled. I functioned in work and other areas of society just fine while staying high all the time, however, I could not hang attention-wise or reaction-wise at all with my fellow sober judoka. You also develop a pretty good group of non-stoner friends. Your good friends who still smoke will respect your choice and you may have a good effect on them.

nonoman is right. Smoking pot every day becomes a hobby/passion which leads to a dead end eventually. All that time spent being high has to be replaced somehow. Find something that drives you and dedicate yourself to it. Otherwise you will fall back into the trap of smoking.

I am 29 now. I started drinking at 14, and smoking pot at 15. After that I was off to the races. Went wild on pot, acid, coke, benso's, alcohol, everthing from 16-22. Slowed down when my children were born. Got a good job. Had to quit. Started back after getting job. Failed drug test for pot a view years later. Started heavy on opiod's, Oxycontin, morphine. Then got on coke, crack real bad also. I got clean 7 months ago. Slipped up about 2 month ago and did 1 line of coke. That is it instead of mushrooms.

I do not socialise with any of my old buddies, I go to NA daily, and I am on a maintaince program for opiods. The consequences of drug use tend to exculate. Pot as harmful as it seems, is not socially accetable, and caused problems with most careers. Hard drugs almost always lead to disaster. At least in my case. I came very close to losing everthing I have, and I am certain I will if I go back to it.

I suggest if you are bothered with the compulsion to use, that you go to some sort of 12 step meeting. There you will be around others that have the same goal as you. Also you do not need to be around people doing drugs. If you are going to see your old buddies, try to do it when they are not using. It is easy for me to temporaryly forget how I am trying not to use, and all the bad shit that has happened to me in the past, when an oppurtunity to use appers. And I now know that I am lying to myself when I say just this one time.

Best wishes.

You are going to hear alot of people telling you to get rid of alot of friends. That you should make a huge dramtic change in your life. While that may help short term. It does no good to the real chage that must come from within.

In order to really want to quit weed. You need to be able to go into any situation and not want to smoke a joint.Becasue you really don't want to. There are some friends you have who get high everyday .Just like you, who are going to be in your life alot longer then you expect. You will need them. They will need you.

When you have a cold that last's for a week. What can you really do about it?? Nothing right? Not you, not the doctor. You just suffer. But how many times in life do you suffer thru that???  Many right??
So why is the suffering of this no big deal?? Because we along time ago learned that somethings are past our control.

Same with weed. You just tell yourself " Hey there is nothing I can do but suffer for awhile because I know that in a week or so I will be better. And I may suffer again but I know it will not last long and I will be alright."

You don't just stop being friends with someone because they gave you a cold. Friends are all a person has. Only you can know who your real friends are.


People who hide from other people to quit drugs never really quit. They just ran and hid. And when the drugs find them again,they always will, They have no power over them, NONE !


DON'T BE A COWARD

be true to yourself and just stop for awhile.



Just for the record I still do drugs. But This lesson I have learned and still srtugle with it is easier said then done :rolleyes:

But I know this is the only way to be real to yourself and your friends. You can be a light to the people that really care about you

GoodLuck :thumbup:

It's hard to hang around with drug friends, when All they do is get messed up. They are always looking for that "high". I think it might be eaiser (for me) to start a new life (with new ppl). I'll always keep my old friends, but i'll stop hanging with them for a while. I hate how life kinda seems boring, not going out meeting ppl and doing different drugs with diffent people. It's the whole lifestyle I kinda miss. I went out on saturday though, and realized it wasn't that much of a loss....
