Eating something is probably a good idea IMO. Keep your strength up.

Hello all!

It's the beginning of Day 6. I'm doing better with the help of some Lexotan and some Xanax. I've consulted with different people and they said that if the dosage it's OK and also the timing and period, it will be better for me to take those, at least during the withdrawal (I mean regularly during the withdrawal). I've some light experience with those medicine from before that, so I think it's for the better for me.

My appetite is better, but still there's a lot to improve.

Thank you for your support!
Best wishes!

Good for you, Ohiochrissy! How are you doing ?

I did smoked a little for a few days like a couple of days ago.

First time it was mixed with tobacco, which I don't smoke for years and it made me feel bad and very sleepy, so I went pretty much straight to bed. After that I decided to try it clean the next day/days. It was not that bad, but still it would make me sleepy, more lazy and in a mood to not want to do much stuff.

Like it takes your energy, motivation and your emotions away and replaces them with some fake kind of happiness and calmness.

I'm on the sober train again since Saturday I think and I feel better!

I'm a little bit scared to say it, but maybe weed just doesn't do the same for me anymore. If that's the case, I think it's partially because I started to change my life as well, to change the way I think and act, and weed doesn't fit well in this new version of myself.

I'm still not making commitment to not smoke again anymore and etc, but I just prefer not to for the moment. Then again, if I feel like it, probably I will.

For anyone trying - keep on the sober train and even if you got off of it for whatever the reason, you can also come back on it like right away, don't take it as an excuse to smoke more and more. I hope I explained myself well.

To be honest, I try not to count days and etc, but just live the life and try to make the best of it.

Thank you for your time and support!
Best Wishes!

Thank you, Dee!

I've some questions:
  1. Is it normal to have panic attacks with heart-beating and etc ? I had one yesterday and it felt bad. I'm lowering the doses of Lexotan and Xanax as discussed with my psycho therapist as well. As I mentioned I started taking them more regularly to help me in the process.
  2. Also, is it normal to not have appetite in the morning, it's very difficult for me to eat in the morning. I don't know if that's something personal that's has nothing to do with the process or is it because of it.

Again, thank you for your time and help!
Best Wishes!

I don't remember a loss of appetite but yeah I was very anxious for a while.
That is to say I've always been anxious all my life - but it was heightened when I quit....high BP, heart racing, sweats, irritability

took a couple of weeks to get back to 'normal'.
I wasn't on any meds.

Hi Teodor and welcome back!
I had loss of appetite that lasted for a while. Some experience nausea as well.
Since you are on medication, I would consult a doctor about the "panic attack". A racing heart is called tachycardia and should be checked out.
Good luck with your quit! We are rooting for you!

Thank you both for the answers!

Yeah, I'm anxious normally as well, my psychotherapist said I used marijuana to lower my anxiety and to worry less. She also said I need to start organizing my life and thoughts and etc and that this it the better road to recovery and will lead to me quitting MJ.

Yes, I've experienced nausea as well, I think it's a normal think related to the quit. I was wondering if the morning loss of appetite it's related to it or it's just me. We'll see. Most people eat a lot in the morning, I just can't, but I think that was also before the quit as well.

I will talk it out with my psychotherapist about the PA, I've already wrote it down on the list with things to talk about.

So not sure which day exactly here, but I'm doing it!
Thank you and best wishes!

Hey teodor, glad to know you are recovering.
Withdrawal hit me hard, it was trully hell, and I remember this hell so I will never smoke again.
Recovery finally worked for me when I gave up overthinking weed and making excuses and being afraid of the plain and simple truth: it's a drug and it's bad for me, so I needed to give it up for good, forever, at any cost. No half measures for me. I hope you find your path too.
Hope everyone is doing well

Hey Pacoloco, thank you!
How are you doing ?

Yeah, I also realized that I need to give up making excuses (PA, feeling bad, etc) and to just let go and trust everything will be better.
As I wrote, I've not stopped with the idea of never ever again, but with the idea that I can if I want to, but I just don't.

I'm at the hotel right now, drinking my coffee and realizing how happy I am and how good it is that I don't have to wonder where to go to hide and smoke my morning joints and etc.

I think the keyword here is freedom.

Thank you again for your support!
Best wishes for everyone!
