Lightbulb had an epiphany

Another day where I go into work, and feel like my entire world is crashing in on me.

I need consistancy, and my friend suggested I give up weed again.

I know deep down this is exactly what I have to do, I have changed so much as a person, I have become a recluse, someone who as long as she has weed, doesn't need anyone else and I don't want to be this person anymore.

I don't want anything to have control over me, especially a substance I have to pay for. I think it is time to listen to those who don't smoke anymore.

It is so scary and It will be the longest road ever, but I have nothing to show for my life right now as weed always came first.

So here goes, I have been lurking in this forum for a few days and now I think it's time I post.

Everyone else's posts have been so inspiring so I hope to maybe inspire someone else to quit from my future blog posts.

Well done to those already sober, and good luck to those who are making the move as am I..






From Spain

Hi and welcome timetofaceit

Weed took over my life too and my world shrank to the confines of my little apartment.

I smoked weed more or less daily for 30 years give or take - but it really is possible to stop smoking, and to move on with your life

you'll find a lot of support here, and in our Marijuana forum as well

Hi Time!

Bienvenido! (that's about all the spanish I know except what I learned in grade school.

I loved your post!

So gracious and poised. Are you a writer?

Stick around and read some of our stories.

I just joined this week - this is my 11th day sober.

The members have been kind and very understanding and have answered any questions I asked.

Look forward to seeing you again

well, when you quit weed there are not really any physical WDs. You might have crazy dreams but you won't have head fog and all the emotional rollercoaster.

It's just a matter of putting your mind to it and breaking the habit of your daily routine.

I wish this was true, but everyone is different. It depends on how long you used and how much you used and your body chemistry.
You could experience insomnia, nightmares, lack of appetite and mood swings.
I recommend a clean, healthy diet, lots of water and physical activity to work up a good sweat.
Posting here often and reading all the wonderful advice is also very helpful.

Oh, and I forgot, you could experience headaches and night sweats. How could I forget the night sweats!? Daytime sweats too for that matter. But these all pass.
Hang in there.
