Quitting weed, a journal
    #3895591 - 03/10/05 12:42 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Tonight was my last THC ingested for a long time. And it was resin. I have felt for a long time that I needed to take a break with pot. I have been a heavy smoker for two and half years. I smoke all day everyday, if I can get it. I usually have the money, so it comes down to finding it, and whether I am willing to smoke schwag. I usually smoke at least a half dozen times aday. An eigth lasts me and my girlfriend two days. I've been meaning to quit for awhile now. Last year, during midterm I said I was going to quit, and during finals I said I was going to quit.

Tonight begins it. I have scraped and cleaned all my pipes. Me and my GF are going to smoke it. Then, thats it. I probably won't smoke for a few weeks. I don't want to quit pot forever, but I need to defog.

So this thread will be a journal of a sorts. I'll talk about how I feel without pot. I hope that you can give me your support through this process. I'll begin with an entry tomorrow, my first day intentionally without pot in a long long time.

Weed only is addictive when you have a weak psychological base, no insult. I think that if you are stubborn enough to say you will never be addicted then you won't. I know i haven't smoked weed in around the duration of a month and a half and i'm fine. No withdrawals or anything of that nature. A drug like cannabis sativa is really what you make of it, it's not a real definite drug with definite usages. You can be lazy on marijuana or hyperactive. I've worked out physically after smoking marijuana and feeling great. Just my opinion, not a fact.

When I wake up, I smoke as though it were a cup of coffee. It works as a pick me up. Its just a time filler through out the day; when I am bored or I feel something would be enhanced by smoking another bowl, I pack it up. Towards the end of the day, I smoke to put myself to sleep.

I don't feel I am addicted to pot, just that I have done something that I enjoy nearly everyday for the past two years. Habits are hard to break and easy to make, ya hear?

When I was a teenage athlete, I can say that I would have had no harder or easier time "quitting" cycling during my peak of fitness. I was having fun, just as I am now, but I was spending twenty hours a week on my bike, I don't spend nearly that amount of time next to my pipe!

The reason I want to quit is I am and have been having trouble focusing and spending time on one thing that used to matter more to me. My future: Despite my belief that I can make it without a college degree I am going to fail out if I don't fix something quick. Quitting a drug is a lot easier than changing other habits, but it is my belief that quitting this drug will help change other habits. And it was my plan last year to quit cigarettes, become comfortable nicotine free and then quit pot. If not now, when?

Marijuana is addictive with everyone. Because it feels good everybody has their vices, everybody. I don't believe in the addiction gene or the idea drug addicts having weak psyciesl problems, we are all human with the same exact tendency's. No matter where you go in life, you're still there. Quit smoking herb if you want more free-time and spare cash, don't think you will have any big increase in like quality because you won't. You allways find some other addiction, just look at all those NA people hitting up meetings like a junkie getting a bag.

So how's your short term memory and concentration? 6 times a day?! I'd probably have died of an overdose, no matther how "impossible" that is. I hope all goes well. We support you.

No, it is not addictive. Some people, for various psychological reasons, latch onto it like they latch onto masterbation or watching television.

Quitting weed is a joke compared to quitting nicotine.

Hey man,

I'm glad you're doing it. I know so many of us that have really struggled to even admit they were addicted to weed. It may not have any chemincals like mass production cigarettes, but humans are perfectly capable of getting addicted to getting high, no matter what your pleasure is. I hope you can come back to ganja and find a good palce for it in your life after you take your break. I'll be there for you man!

Love,
~TonyZ

Congrats man. If you're inclined to discontinue smoking, then obviously you feel you're better off without it. I'm kind of the same. I've smoked weed almost every day (with a few extended breaks) for the last five years. At the end of next week I'm taking another break, although not completely. I intend to simply not smoke it alone, and not buy it.

If I have some lying around, I'll smoke it unless I have a real good reason not to. It does affect my motivation levels and the amount of schoolwork I get done. It also shortens my days (I reserve the last two waking hours to getting stoned and listening to music.) I'm kind of tired of that ritual, so I'm gonna take a six-month break and see what happens.

Good luck to you man, I'll be joining you soon.

I've never really understood how someone could get addicted to marijuana. For me, using it more than once a week would water down most of the positive effect because of "tolerance" I'm guessing. On top of this, being "high" doesn't feel "good" or euphoric like an opiate does. Brain chemistry?

Weed addiction is mainly psychological, it is quite easy to quit, it is good to prevent it from forming a habit because it really does screw up you short term memory and concentration, not to mention the paranoia and in the long term the world seems to get rather dull.
The best thing to do really is to just think about the situations and frame of mind in which you are likely to get stoned, and either avoid those situations or do something else, like drink a cup of tea or listen to music, occupy yourself with something. After a few days your memory will start returning and your mind will feel a natural high which will get better and better the longer you keep off the waccy baccy. That is how I got rid of my habit anyways. If that doesn't work, a heavy shroom/LSD trip will actually do wonders, it has the power to break the cycle of addiction of even the most hardened heroin/crack addicts and alcoholics. Though the trip has to be heavy, and will likely be an unpleasant experience.

SOrry to be blunt. But I'm fairly sick of reading addiction debate in my thread. If you want to debate the addiction properties of pot, go suck a dick and discuss it over dinner with Bob Saget. Or just go to ODD. The debate is over in this thread. If it keeps going, I'm abandoning the thread. The purpose for this thread was support.


Here's my entry, since last time I posted.

I stopped smoking resin at 3AM the morning I made the first post. I cheated today after class. So I went for 36 hrs without smoking. I had a sour stomach and couldn't eat anything. So I smoked two bowls of schwag. I almost split a bag with friends, but it fell through so I abandoned it. I'm going to go the week without pot, until Thursday or Friday when I meet up with old friends out of state.

As far as symptoms go. Well, before I smoked today, I still felt that "not-so-stoned" feeling that you get when you smoke a lot but haven't smoked recent enough to actually be high. I was fairly tense, I found myself with a death grip on a couple pens in my pocket more than once during class. I haven't put my finger on my triggers, but I am realizing that I have formed triggers that make me want to smoke pot. Some of the triggers I have noticed: Getting home from class; funny TV shows like the simpsons, family guy and futurama; my friend Mike; after eating.

I apologize for the petty debate; probably should have belonged in another thread.

I hope that you can hold out and quit smoking marijuana. What other negative effects are you experiencing?

No debate is petty when it has so much to do with so many peoples' freedom. However, its place is not here. I tried to interject a little humor into it with the Half Baked reference. I hope I didn't put too many people off.

I didn't smoke today. I am not around it at all right now, I am at my parents house.
I noticed a second effect today. I am not very hungry. Today I ate: Chips and soft cheese (about a RDA serving), 3/4 of a grilled cheese, more chips and soft cheese, 1/2 a slice of eggplant with sauce and parmasan cheese. THat was breakfast lunch and dinner, more or less in order. I didn't feel hungry. Since 10pm or so, I've also had three 12 oz bitburger beers (light german pils).

As far as the better news, I feel clearer, believe it or not.

So for the score here, on wednesday night I smoked all my resin until 3AM. On Friday I smoked two bowls of schwag. Today I smoked nothing.
I will be smoking next week Friday, when I meet up with friends out of state. But I think that I will take another week off when I get back.

ull get threw it. After a few days you wont remeber what it was like being High. Just stay posetive and stay away from your potthead friends. Cuz they think its fun to nock ya down and its a challenge to keep ya down by smoking weed. We are all on different levels ya know. People dont understand how it is to be you, so they may think its fun n games trying to get you to smoke. Be truthful to them and to yourself.
