  • I stopped... that's all... I used to smoke for years but when I stopped, I just stopped... didn't have any problems. Marijuana is not addictive in the sense that body begins to crave it. But you can develop a habitual addiction - much like someone who get into the habit of wiping their mouth after every wipe or avoiding stepping on cracks on the sidewalk. It's all a matter of changing your patterns. If you were using pot to help you get to sleep, then find something else that will lull you to bed - read a book, turn on music or the tv with the volume low, drink warm milk, or eat a slice of turkey.
  • Yes.. it's not easy. Especially if you smoke a lot everyday. The first week is the hardest. Stay busy! Very busy. And avoid friends that smoke because it will make the transition harder. Maybe try a vacation somewhere new! New people, new places, new things to do. That might keep you busy enough to break your habit. Once I quit smoking, I had the most intricate, vivid dreams every night. That encouraged me to not want to start again. Good luck!
  • I also just stopped, it was making me lazy and I was eating my local supermarket out of chocolate and crisps. It wasn,t really hard although I smoked more cigs than usual for a time. I think its something you grow out of eventually anyway, nobody likes walking round in a zombified state for ever. Try putting the cash you would normally spend on it aside, and treat yourself to something every month. Good luck!
  • I have discovered...well not really discovered...but Tylonol PM for sleeping. It's not addictive not habit forming...(almost) and in 30 minutes...Out like a light. Quitting has been a lot harder than I thought. But that's b/c all of my friends are smokers...that makes a huge difference! Good luck with the good fight!
  • Excederine PM helps me sleep, if I can't, I won't take a prescription drug, or drug to do so. Good luck!!!
  • I thought quiting whould be pretty hard, b/c i had to not b/c i wanted to *Military*. I had been smokeing since i was 13 pretty much every day. All my freinds are 100% stoners. The only anoying part was when friends are smokeing passing it around they always want to pass it to you then say..."HAHA sorry dude i forgot!" But when i had to i did, i started feeling better more outgoing, felt like i had more time during the day. And got to love the money you can save to spend on yourself or others!
  • I was addicted to Oxycontin for 2 years and i detoxed from that in June, I am still taking the methadone daily from my buddy (we are both licensed physicians at a local hospital and he is my "Primary care doc". However, after going thru something as painful as opiate withdrawal, even medically supervised, quitting smoking ganja really isnt that bad.....PHYSICALLY, when i was quittin Oxy it was literally physically painful, but with chronic i just dont smoke, the only time it gets hard it when u cant sleep or when u get mad or upset about something. I also have stomache problems from the years of Oxycontin and Vicodin/Norco(by the fist full) so the marijuana helps with the extreme stomache pain and lack of apetite that i exerience every couple days, but now i just take some herbal remedies. here is a great list of herbal and OTC meds for marijuana-detox. here it is: -Valerian root helps withn the anxiety/tension/sleep(local health or grocery food store) -tylenol PM or exedrine PM for sleep -protein shake/slim fast/meal replacement (to make sure ur gettin calories when ur appetite is nonexistant for a few days) -PHYSICAL EXERCISE will work that stuff out of your system AND make you tired so you can sleep better. If anyone had any questions on ANY drugs or detoxing from ANY drug, you can contact me (for free of course), and i can give you advice on what you can do with the resources available to you......it will save you a co-pay. of course i wont issue any prescription over the internet, but as far as were you can go for help, OTC or readily available alternatives, or ANY medical questions, i dont mind answering them, even if you are a CURRENT drug user there are TONS of different precautions you can take to minimize the risk of overdose, disease, and/ or accidents, if u ask me i think its rediculous how they charge people co-pays when sometimes all they need to do is ask their doctor a simple question or two. email me any questions at prizneeze@hotmail.com, my name is Dr. Shepherd, this is my personal email account so feel free!
  • I am currently trying to quit b/c i got busted selling. my boyfriend and i have smoked about a half ounce between us everyday since we were like 14, i am now 19. i'm not gonna lie i don't want to quit. i'm still not to that point but i really just wish it was easy. everyday i used to smoke: when i woke up and then about every hour throughout the day. Now i have been going to school then work and coming home for about an hour and spending time with my boyfriend. After that hour we're both ready to go out the door and find some. being the person who had it for everyone else, it's hard to find it. Not being able to get it is half the reason i don't smoke so much. i and down to a blunt a day (just in the past 7 days) and i don't know how to let go of that one blunt. I do have problems sleeping, and no my blunt a day is not to help me sleep. it's to caLM MY NERVES. my b/f and i will literally fight over the dumbest things b/c we're not high. that's what leads to that blunt. I really want help sooooooooooo bad but i also want to smoke. i just can't find things to do in my boring hometown to keep me busy. how are you supposed to quit when there's nothing to do but sit home and watch TV or go smoke? please reply.
  • i used to smoke for almost a year straight, & i stopped for three years i was clean, i started dating this guy & he has been smoking for 4 years he stopped for me just for a month & started again, since i knew he was doing it, it made me want to do it because i couldn't stay with him knowing he was smoking pot, i did it again after being clean for three years & now i want to do it everytime he does it because it hurts me when he does it & i know he won't stop for me & the more he smokes it the more i'm just going to smoke it too so i'm in a clutch i don't know what to do i'm actually so frustrated because my friends hate the fact that im changing for him... but good luck to everyone.
  • man im actually geting clean right now i broke my pice with a hammer that kinda helped ive been clean for 3 weeks and man its so hard! but you just have to go for wats right.
  • You enjoy smoking and it's obviously medicinal for you because you relax. Maybe what you need to do is just strengthen your "moderation" muscle a bit and use it as needed for life's stresses...
  • I totally understand your dilemma, I quit about four months ago, it was mostly because of all the money I was spending on it, and all of the drama I had to go through to get it. I met a girl at my last job that would hook it up for me at first she said she could get me any amount I wanted like an 1/8 for $60.00 or 2 grams for $30.00 of good hybrid types of weed. But then she switched the tables on me and started telling me that her dealer woulnd sell her anything less than a quarter lb. for $180.00 or an oz for $600.00 she kept insisting that it was best to buy large amounts to save money; in the end I ended up smoking way more, one day I just asked her if her dealer could just get me some of the shake (of good stuff) he sold it for 100.00 for a quarter she claims, (and I believe she was lying,) that the dude hung up on her, okay, well I asked her could you sell me some of your stuff like two grams for 30.00. She claims that this will piss her boyfriend off also her and her boyfriend smoke a half lb. a week so they always have all this weed, and when I met her she told me that her boyfriend believes that weed should not be sold but just given away for free. So what the fuck why then do they buy so much of it. And if it should be given for free then just hook me up with some for free then. Of course I know that this just wont happen because people never give you something for nothing. I quit the job so I dindt see her. One day she called me on the phone to say hi and wanted to hang out with me. We hung out she tried to get me stoned and I just simply told her that I quit because I dont want to start smoking again and spending all my money, she seemed all dissapointed and butt hurt. Also I was getting too lazy and forgetting to do things and becoming too disorganized. The type of stuff she got was just that too good! the shit that makes you too lazy. I personally prefer the cheaper sativa kind makes me more hypper! Bottom line it was too much fucking drama to go through plus all the money I was spending and all of the lies that girl was telling me about why she couldnt get me less weed ect ect. I had enough of all the bullshit I quit. I may wait until they make it legal or get one of those marijuana cards( I live in cali) its easy to get them here. But for now Im done with all this bullshit. .
  • yea, i'vequit a bunch of times. months, years, weeks in between at different points, but i dont feel addicted to it because im fine when i smoke and im fine when i dont. i guess to stop yourself from being tempted is to really have a full schedule. some things to help you sleep: you could try melatonin (get at any drugstore/ vitamin store), nyquil, go to a doctor and get something prescribed?
  • I've been smoking for about four years, and finally decided it's time to kick the habit. It's something I enjoy, but enough is enough. It's gotten to the point where I am lazy and unmotivated, and I have personal goals that are not being obtained as a result. Not to mention the expense, probably $500/ month which is pretty ridiculous. Today, June 1, 2008 is my first day of sobriety. To help me keep from being tempted, I deleted my dealers from my phone and removed everything related to pot from my house. I just moved to a new city, so it helps that I don't have any stoner friends here. I'm also trying to enjoy the outdoors more, walking, riding my bike, and staying busy to keep my mind off MJ. It seems that finding other ways to occupy yourself besides lighting up is the key to quitting. So, I'm trying to stay as busy as possible. I'm serious about quitting, I've had my fun with marijuana, now it's time to move on and start living life again.
  • Living in Utah makes you want to smoke just so you can get your mind off the place. Not saying that's good, just that sometimes it really does help.
  • Boy, can I relate to you people! I am so glad to hear that I am not the only one that smokes a ton. I haven't smokedin 2 days just because I cvan't get my hands on any. Every time I am out I think about quitting and all the benefits. It hasn't slowed me down from reaching goals, sometimes I think I actually have achieved more because I refuse to fit into the stereotype. Why is it so frikkin hard? I am a grown woman yet I refuse to recognize the reality of how much my use inpacts my life. My husband is as bad as me, we justify it because our drug of choice used to be coke and we rarely drink. Good luck to all, Ill check back, hopefully I will read more replies that will help me begin to quit!!!!
  • Dude your addicted to marijuana....I used to suck di*k for coke!
  • ive smoked on and off when i was 15 and 16.. at 17 i started smokin alot and eventually was high all hours of the day.. just a fatty stoner.. im almost 19 now and finished my first year of college.. did great, (doesnt affect school unless you allow it to). i also work. ive quit several times.. its always been so hard.. after i quit the first time in december 07 i for the first time had a severe panic attack that lasted 8 hours.. thought i was gonna die, thought i was a crazy ass murderer.. felt like my heart was gonna pound out my chest, cold/hot sweats, the list goes on. i went on to smoke again.. quit again in jan. 08 and stopped for about 2 months.. the craving stopped so i decided to do it again.. did it and two days later went into this wierd ocd like type thing where i thought i was something i wasnt which led to depression.. this lasted about a month (still clean) it got so bad i was like F it.. i started smokin again, alot.. it took away the depression and anxiety and i was bak to my normal self... i recently quit 4 days ago and feel a lot better.. no anxiety or depression.. maybe it is true that people grow out of it because i got tired of being lazy and high all day. im working out a ton.. drinking tons of water, taking vitamins, eating good and taking tylenol pm to get me some good rest.. To tell u the truth i get irritated easily but itll go awy with in a month hopefully.. to those of you who find it HARD AS HELL to quit smoking weed.. i know how you feel.. So bunk all you peoples who say weed is not addictive.. it is for me and many other people.. ! Good Luck to those trying to stay clean from weed.
  • Today I got on the Internet and typed into the search engine: How to Stop Smoking Weed. For the past hour or so I've been reading all sorts of advice and comments from people who are going through or who went through the same shit I'm going through right now. I have been smoking heavily for the past 5 years, ever since that first time of smoking my freshman year of college. I'm a junior right now. I let smoking and partying completely consume me. After dropping out of school, going back, failing a semester, not to mention my boyfriend getting arrested twice for pot, I'm finally ready to stop smoking. I used to justify smoking by saying it wasn't really a drug and that the only thing holding me back from acheiving my goals was myself and I couldn't blame it on pot...but I am at the point right now where I am lazy and unmotivated and depressed with myself for not getting anywhere, for not doing anything... I keep pushing it off. Just this morning as I was smoking a joint I was thinking to myself that Sunday would be my last day. Yesterday I was thinking that the 4th would be my last day. June 30th I was telling myself that July 1st would be my first day of sobriety. Reading what other people are writing about quitting smoking is really inspiring for me. It let me know Im not the only one going through this.
  • I wish I could stop. Life is going shit. I dont care about smoking it. It doesnt do anything, or so I thought. Just failed my TAFE course that ive been duing full time coz I just got lazy. I dont want to stop, but I do, I just feel like i in a whole. I cant escape pot its everywhere evern my parents have a plant. fuck this goodluck with your future!

  • I AM JUST OVER A WEEK NOW WITHOUT ANY WEED, IV SMOKED CONSTANTLY EVERYDAY FOR 3 YEARS MAYBE 2 OR 3 DAYS WITHOUT IT AT THE MOST. MOST OF MY FRIENDS SMOKE IT HEAVILY BUT ARE REALLY SUPPORTIVE AND WONT OFFER IT TO ME AND DONT TAKE THE PISS. THIS HELPS A LOT. IV HAD PEOPLE TELLING ME THROUGHOUT MY WASTED YEARS THAT I SHOULD STOP (MAINLY RELATIVES AND ELDERS) BUT THERE ADVISE NEVER MEANT ANYTHING AND I JUST CARRIED ON SMOKING. YOU CAN ONLY STOP WHEN YOU WANT TO DO IT FOR YOUR SELF, IV NEVER REALISED HOW DIFFERENT LIFE IS WITHOUT IT UNTIL NOW(SO CLEAR). IV HAVE SLEPT FOR ABOUT 12 HOURS OVER THE LAST WEEK BUT I AM NOW BEGGINING TO GET A SLEEP PATTERN BACK. THIS IS THE HARDEST PART I HAVE FOUND ABOUT QUITTING AND HAVE DREAMT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN YEARS. MY FRIENDS STILL DONT SEE WEED AS A DRUG AND I DIDNT UNTIL NOW BUT AS I HAVE SAID THEY WILL ONLY STOP WHEN THEY ARE IN A PLACE IN THEIR HEAD THAT MAKES THEM WANT TO STOP. IV BEEN IN A WASTERS JOB OVER THE THREE YEARS AND ONLY NOW HAVE I REALISED THAT I HATE IT BECAUSE I WAS ALWAYS STONED AND JUST DID IT WITHOUT THINKING, MY BRAIN IS CRAVING STIMULATION. THIS SITE HAS HELPED ME SO MUCH AS I HAVE ONLY JUST REALISED THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ARE IN THE SAME SITUATIONAN AS ME!! THANKS FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE TAKEN THE TIME TO COMMENT, THESE SITES CAN REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE THIS IS WHY I CHOSE TO WRITE. THE ANXIETY IS GOING, THE ROLLERCOASTER EMOTIONS ARE FADING AND IM STARTING TO SLEEP , THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
  • I quit 25 years ago yo...
  • I smoked weed everyday for 20 years, then I moved to cocaine and did it on the weekends for 5 more years until I decided I had enough. When your coming down from cocaine, you weed addiction is crystal clear. A real "naked lunch" of reality. I a really sick individual who like the existential downer more than the high. If your a "real" addict like me, the only relieve I found was a spiritual solution. The only problem is I'm Libertarian and don't like Organized religion. I went to CA NOT AA. For me CA helped me connect to this idea of a "Higher Power" who once I tune it to it keeps me sober. I though this was bullshit for years but discovered its the real deal. The real issue: I used drugs because I did not like the way I felt in my own skin. Most of you are not real addicts so you may not completely understand. Addiction is more generally about obsession and compulsion. The way some really fuck up people stay sober is surrender to a higher power of their understanding. In not spouting off holler than thou crap...I dont claim to be spiritual perfect rather just seeking spiritual progress. Google MA
  • Hey people. I have been smoking drugs everyday now for under a year. I want to get off it, but I cant seem to sleep without it, it knocks me out and gurantee's me sleep as its the only thing that shuts my body down. When I don't have it, all I want to do is stay up, but obviously I have to work to live so going into work knackered isn't a good thing. Anyway have any tips on how to help me sleep whilst getting off of it. I am going away in 3 weeks for a 2 week vacation, so I will be away from it, do you think this holiday will help?
  • i quit for a week every once in a while.. im actually on my 2nd day right now.. its not hard at all.. if u smoke... smokin is a good substitute.. but yea its not hard cuz its not addicting.
  • dude, its easy to quit weed since its not addictive like cigz....
  • sup everyone! i have been smoking weed heavily everyday for 4 years. I have tried to quit a couple times but it didnt work because deep down inside i really didnt want to. I thought "its just weed." I guess the hardest part is breaking the habit like breaking up with your other. I am on my 5th day and i hope it continues. Just wanted to say that this site has helped answered many of questions. I bought an new air conditioner, even bought an extra fan, to realize that sweaty nights is part of the withdrawl lol And as soon as my eyes close i enter a dream state like never b4. I have also expierenced some severe headaches. Worst part is i am having major trouble falling asleep and when i do i wake up every 2 hours or so. Thanks to all for clearing this up for me and it feels good to get all this off my chest to ppl who understand. I just hope the next 5 days are easier then the first! sweet dreams everyone! lol
  • I have to say after reading the first answer from Amanda36, I am just laughing. What psychological or physiological research or evidence is there to support what she posted?? Audio programs?? I must say, I am a graduate psychology student and there is no basis for saying audio programs work for anything let alone for quiting marijuana. Additionally, eating more fruits and vegetables?? I have to just laugh! Marijuana is not physically addictive..."helping your body become more alkaline"...where did this statement come from? Was Amanda36 high when she typed this response? This is totally made up. Anyways, I've been smoking on and off for 5 years and over the past 2 years have smoked pretty much every day. I graduated magna cum laude, have a good job, and am getting a graduate degree. If you are not self-motivated, marijuana will destroy you because you will never be able to get anything done. If you are self-motivated, achievement driven and have self-control, marijuana can be a natural stress reliever and actually you can learn to use it to your mind's benefit such as for creativity purposes, deeper thinking and spiritual enlightenment. I recently quit smoking for drug test purposes and honestly I have to say the only struggle is finding something to fill my time because I've been so bored without it. I can't stand to have free time. The summer weekends are the hardest with no class and no work. All I can say is if you are choosing to stop smoking marijuana, find a replacement. The only thing you'll be suffering from is boredom. Grab a good book, start exercising or take up a new hobbie. A perk is that you'll most likely lose weight because without smoking you basically have no appetite. As far as sleeping goes, if you make yourself get up early and start your day, you'll be tired when night comes. Good luck to everyone! Marijuana is a lot less harmful than other drugs and ESPECIALLY alcohol. Educate yourself people!
  • i smoked 5-10 times a day for months, and finally decided it wasn't worth the risk in kansas. so i quit on instantaneous notice, haven't lit up since, haven't even been tempted. i've been around it countless times, i believe wholly in the freedoms that we DON'T have, but its not worth falling on my sword over when colorado is only one state away, and i can be a much more open objector to the illegal aspects of it there. it just takes desire and drive to quit. also, i had been smoking a pack of cigarettes a day for about six months when i had the vision of moving to colo, and with nothing more that a very VIVID goal for the money i'd be saving, i quit that too, both cold turkey within 24 hours of each other. my dad said it couldn't be done. who's laughing now?
  • Wasn't very hard at all. Just decided a few years ago that i just didn't want to any-more.
  • aaannnddd yeah, agreeing with maryjane, being in the health and wellness industry, i know the benefits of having an alkaline ph level, and the advantage of eating healthy, and it has absolutely NOTHING to do with craving a high. i want to enlighten myself every day. i also have an alkaline ph level, along with taking multiple nutrition supplements every day. having an alkaline environment in your body does a GREAT DEAL to fight cancer and many other diseases, but has abso-fuckin-lutely nothing to do with "drugs"... and weed isn't a drug, don't call it that. its a plant put here with all the lettuce and oranges and bananas you're talking about, amanda.
  • I don't know if you've read Allen Carr's Easy Way to quit smoking, but it is a great book. In it, Carr shows how to quit smoking a drug many times more addictive than pot, nicotine. And he said the same tecnique would probably work for any drug. Carr's bottom line: why do we consume any drugs (legal or not)? Because somewhere in our minds, we have become convinced somwhere down the line that we are incomplete with that drug. We "need" our "crutch" - be it the cigarette, the beer, or the joint (or bong). The minute you realize that you are a fully complete person the way nature created you, without any need to inject drugs, you will be on your way to quitting any drug. I agree with Carr that this line of thinking can help anyone quit pretty much anything. Second point: In our brain there is a pharmacy of natural drugs which are unbelievably powerful and can get you high as a kite. Have you ever been jogging for 40 minutes? The feeling after even a light jog is exhilaterating, and can compete with any marijuana high. So do the things that nature has programmed your brain to reward you with - exercise! My theory is that joggers and people who exercise are basically drug addicts - they're hooked on the dopamines that your brain naturally releases. And the results are fantastic! You get stoned minus the lung damage and short term memory loss. So replace your pot smoking with any form of regular exercise (build it up over time) and enjoy being stoned. That's my take on it... good luck.
  • I quit all the time! Sounds funny but it's true. I have smoked for over twenty years and the only problem I see with it are the employment drug tests. In my job I am HEAVILY drug tested for the eight months I work every year. During the summer I pretty much just disappear for 3-4 months and have no problem smoking for the first 2-3 months of my time off. When I begin my time off usually the 1st thing I do is take a trip to amsterdam. You have to understand the problem with weed isn't that it is dangerous or addictive it is that people test for it. Back to the quitting. Stay clear of it to begin with. for the 1st week or two it will be too tempting to decide to burn one and start all over. Keep yourself occupied and clean your living environment of pipes, bongs, papers, roaches etc. As for the insomnia I really can't help you there cuz i have suffered from insomnia my whole life, I can't just go to sleep i have to fall asleep watching tv or reading a book. You are going to have to deal with the oral fixation too. That is the worst part for me but I also smoke cigarettes so in the beginning I smoke alot more cigarettes and a few cigars, way worse for you then the weed but you do what you have to do. You always need to have a bunch of snack food around because appetite or not you are trying to substitute an oral fixation so I try to get healthy choices like grapes or berries anything other then potato chips. As far as night sweats go I just keep my place cold all the time but when im quitting i spend more time on top of the covers. Have plenty of things to keep you occupied like books movies, or mess around online like im doing now cuz its time to kick again for the fall. As for the dopamine and adrenaline I am a motocross junkie and I spend alot of time out riding especially when it's time to quit. I like to spend the first few days in the woods cuz it keeps me away from the temptation and after having an adrenaline rush all day I feel something more incredible then a weed high at the end of the day. not sure what else to tell you other then to keep in mind you are mainly dealing with an oral fixation and keep that in mind. Maybe try smoking shisha from a hooka or smoking a pipe. After the 1st week or two you are golden though. Hope something I said helps.
  • i run everyday it is easy to sleep then and it gets you into better shape
  • dont ever quit, foo..
  • I used to smoke a lot more when I was younger (I'm 48 now)...I still smoke occasionally, but I've found it easier to turn on and off, so to speak, as I've gotten older...
  • Well, I have been smoking for the last 14 years...every day...all day...and the reason? I have PCOS and if you have it or know someone who does, it hurts...a lot...alsmost constant. Anwyay, smoking the toke takes the pain away and allows me to do things that normally, because of the pain, I would not be able to do. But, because I want nothing more than to have a baby, I figure if I quit smoking the toke, it would make a difference. Even if it doesn't, at least during the time I don't smoke, my tollerance goes back down and I don't have to smoke as much to get the high I want. Saves money and brain cells!
  • yes i have tried to quit smoking twice, and it wasn't easy i felt like i was going crazy. i went to the gym, swimming things that would tired me out at the end of the day.set a goal plan and stick with it try to remember everytime you go to smoke that you are trying to accomplish whatever the goal might be. its not easy but stay focus wish you luck!
  • i'm 19. I smoked a minimum of 5 bowls a day every day for 3 1/2 months. NOTHING like the legends on this site. i truly admire their ability to stick to it. but i had a run-in with johnny law. so when i got out of jail the next morning, i knew i was going to have to quit. although "oral fixation" is REALLY weird to say that i have, i can't say that smoking cigarettes didn't help me quit smokin weed. All i did to do that was to make the decision. at that point i was also smoking a pack a day. NOT healthy. so i went to a cancer walk, and although i've done ZERO exercise other than work since high school, i ran about half of the 26 miles, and walked the rest. just to show myself how bad of shape i'm in (actually i thought i did really well, considering). that night i went from smoking a pack a day to no more weed, and no more cigarettes. I kept on that until i made the conscious decision to smoke again. i've smoked weed a couple times since (it would be all day, every day if i had my choice) and i've taken up smoking cigarettes again, but i smoke MAYBE half a pack a day on a bad day. It's all about mindset. read The Slight Edge, it has a great philosophy behind it, and it will help you in ANY aspect of your life that you want to accomplish something in.
  • i need help im going crazy trying to quit i smoke for 23 years and i move to florida to quit and i feel like im gonna die plz help me
  • I am in the process of quitting right now, and though it isn't like quitting pills or speed or cigs, which I have, it is harder than people give credit. I have smoked pot every day, one to ten times a day, for 12 years, I am 29. People say the first week is the hardest, but I am in week two and going crazy. My goal is one month. I can't don't cigs anymore, right now I wish I did, so the only things that help are tylenol pm to help me sleep, and exercise. The first week I had a lot more determination than I do this week; I spend most of my sitting around, thinking about how much I want to do it, and watching the clock until it is time to take the tylenol and go to sleep. Exercise is a great help, when I do it, but the biggest is not being in situations where other people are smoking and getting rid of all pipes, bubblers, dealer' number...everything. Is it like alcohol or speed? I want to smoke again in a month, maybe two or three, but will I go back to the addiction? Can I never smoke again?
  • I HAVE BEEN SMOKING WEED FOR 18 MONTHS.IT HAS TOTALLY RUINED MY LIFE.I HAVE TRIED TOO STOP 4 TIMES.EVERYTIME I FEEL AS IF I AM GOING TOO DIE.BUT THIS TIME I AM GOING TOO DO IT.I HAVE ANXIETY ATTACKS.PASS OUT.BEEN IN HOSPITAL FOR THESE.PAINS ALL OVER MY BODY.I HAVE NOT SMOKED ANY FOR 3 WEEKS NOW.I AM ON ANTIDEPRESSANTS.THEY ARE NOT WORKING.DOES ANYONE ELSE FEEL THIS WAY??.IS THIS NORMAL??.THE DOC SAYS IT IS ALL DUE TOO WEED.IS THIS TRUE??CAN ANYONE HELP??THANKS FOR LISTENING.
  • Marijuana is NOT a CHEMICALLY addictive herb. It's all in the mind. Sex is just as addictive as Marijuana. Giving up Marijuana is as hard as giving up sex. you just have to train youirself, if you really want to quit. I've quit several times... it's no big deal. Craving marijuana is no different than craving PIZZA. I can give up pizza just as easily as I can give up marijuana... but I like Pizza.... and I like Marijuana.. =)
  • Ive smoked marijuana over the summer .when I desided to quit I have been very paranode,having a lot of anxity,panic attacts its been so bad I had to go on antidepressents just so I could think straight.I know this is from the pot because I never had this before The medicine is helping I am not as depressed as I was .Its been two months how long does this last I think Im going crazy.
  • Im trying to quit smoking trees aswell. Its not hard but it's making me remember why I started smoking in the first place: boredom. Weed hasn't made me lazy, I have always been lazy, no lie. Im kind of a loaner, I find it hard to find someone that I can hang with and share similar iterests with. When your use to smoking weed for breakfast, lunch and dinner for three years and than just quit, things get boring really fast. I dont see the relevance in a lot of things that people do in thier lives here in America, so I dont do them, thus giving me alot of free time which I enjoy, but watching tv without pot is mad lame sometimes. I have began to exercise, but you cant spend the whole day exercising. Mainly I cant afford it anymore and thats the main reason I had to quit. I will always support bud and maybe one day I will be able to afford it again. Also I might join the military so ill have to stop for that. Props to anyone quiting weed for self improvement but dont blame it for causing all your problems when there have been many succesful people who indulge in trees. Squaaaaaaaaa!
  • I grew and smoked bud since I was 14-- but wake and bake- and all day from 16 to 22. I would quick for 3 weeks sometimes- maybe twice between that span of 6 years. but on my 23rd birthday- i quit for good. all my other buddies smoke- and yes it is hard. Its been 1 year and 11 months-- and yes i have dreams of getting high- but feel guilty when i wake up. There is nothing worse then going to see a crap movie sober.Also I had to give up boomers-- i cant trip if i cant smoke bud. thats been a bummer but its worth it! For a while i started drinking a lot- but that lead to serious heartburn. All in all- i got to say that my life is 100% better without smoking. My moods are more in check- i have more ambition-- the negative is that I smoke cigaretts now. All in all- the sleep thing is hard- but it is totally over in 3 months-- that may seem like forever- but after 3 months- i had no trouble falling asleep. Again- the best thing i ever did was quit smoking bud. Im about to turn 25- i got into grad school- which i would have never done if i continued to blaze- I have a great girlfriend- and my life seems much better in every way. Im actually writing this from a global biz stratagies class. Quit smoking- just make goals-- for example- try for 3 months- then once you hit 3 months - its much easier to keep being sober. best of luck-- but when you get 23,24,25- its just not that cool anymore to blaze all day- if you can dabble here and there then do it-- i couldnt-- i had to wake and bake-- no moderation. I quit cold turkey-- sucked big time-- but my life is much better now-- it gets easier
  • Marijuana is not physically addictive... it's psychological. There are no addictive chemicals in Marijuana.
  • I stayed baked for most of my teen years. Loooong story entirely. I started to forget all the bad stuff. But one day I woke up and realized all the good stuff was hazy. I hated that. I wanted to deal with it like a man ,so to speak, (I'm obviously female, but you get my drift) and I wanted to remember everything life had to offer. Good or bad. So I quit....cold turkey. It was hell getting to sleep and I didn't sleep for probably about a month or so. Not through the night anyway. But it was really awesome remembering where I put my car keys!!!!!! Try getting a hobby to keep your mind occupied. It's all in your head anyway:) Good luck!!!
  • I am 24 and have been smoking regularly since I was 17. Wow, that's seven years! Before 17 I smoked and did other drugs like xtc, cocaine, and hallucinogenics. I also had a cocaine problem from when I was 18-21. Now that I write all this stuff out, I sound like a real loser! So I am 24 now. I have a lack of interest in social things and hate myself for it because I feel like a loser. Smoking all these years has made my allergy induced asthma much worse also. Marijuana is holding me back from fulfilling something that truly makes me happy: optimum fitness. I know what I need to do. I need to break all my glass ware. trash the rolling papers. and tell all my friends and gfs that I am not going to smoke anymore and to not bring it around me by any means. I do this halfway sometimes. I will tell people I am quitting and I will leave my glassware at a friends. Then once I have been clean for a while and I am feeling good, I give in when I least expect it. I need to make my efforts more drastic and permanent. I HAVE TO BREAK THE GLASS! I HAVE TO TELL MY FRIENDS TO LEAVE ME ALONE IF THEY ARE GOING TO BRING MARIJUANA IN ANY WAY AROUND ME! --I think I don't do it because of the low self esteem that I have for myself and my body. --Then again I will never achieve great self esteem if I am not able to achieve the goals I set for myself in the gym and on the track. I dont achieve those goals because I get too comfotable sitting on my lazy ass while I'm stoned. and when I get to the gym after I've been smoking that day, my asthma kicks in and my muscles don't get the oxygen they need, and i have to stop. ....That was a load off my mind, and a clarifying moment
  • another thing that's been driving me crazy lately is the fact that I am having a lot of trouble remembering people's/place's names.
  • I DONT HAVE A ANSWER I WOULD LIKE TO STOP SMOKE TOO. IT MORE mental FOR ME I DONT GET ALL HIGH ACT DUM BEEN SMOKING LONG TIME IT MAKE ME A HAPPY PERSON I GO WORK TAKE CARE MY HOME .IT THE MONEY I SPEND MAKE ME WANT STOP BUT IT HARD .MY BODY DONT GAVE IT MY MINE DOES
  • I am looking to stop, too. It makes me sit and over-analyze what people are saying and what they *have said* to me. And I think that is the paranoia kicking in. (My form of it, anyways). It's a huge excuse not to do anything for me, too. My wife and I always seems to buy more, even though we always agree that we both want to quit. (The "we will stop after this bag" syndrome). I really want this time to stick. I spent most of my life sober and would really like to know what it's like again. I am ready. I didn't start smoking until just a few years ago. And I even started it right before I met my wife and haven't quit since after we got married, so techinically we don't know each other as "two sober people". How scary is that?
  • I've been smoking since I was 13, I am now 24. I go to the gym, eat fruits and vegetables, but I do not have a girlfriend. Maybe that is what I need? Anyways, I crave smoking pot several times a day. I like smoking pot. But I think that pot has damaged my brain and I want to see what the sober life is. I quit for two years when I was 19, but once I came back to NYC, I started up again...thanks to my friends. Maybe some new friends will help me? hmmm. Ok I can do this. New friends. Thanks.
  • Yes I did and was so pleased with they way it tuned out I wrote a book about to help others do the same : http://stop-toking.com check it out
  • So ya i just quit... or think i have its only been three weeks. I spend the whole year of 2008 high, like the longest i had stopped was 6 days. Its kind of addictive but when you become sober you'll miss it a shit ton. Then like you'll get really depressed during the after first week phase. But after 3 weeks i dont feel depressed. I feel a shit ton better plus i'm not spending that much money so thats a plus. And i also felt like I was going crazy like it was scaring me a ton. But im kinda over it...... its been two days since i haven't had the I'm crazy feeling and depression. It may come back.... I hope not.. :( Btw i smoked about a half 8 daily so thats bout 30 bucks a day. I've smoked about everyday for 2 years.... Good Luck!
  • Hey there, I got cought at a local party smoking this weekend and the cops told my father (who also is a cop). He lost his reputation about his son and I feel pretty bad for him. Perhaps this is the time for me to quit smoking pot. I've been smoking heavily for over a year now and these past few days have been pretty weird to me. My brain is starting clear up a bit, it's like a fog that's going away. Now - sitting in my room being bored I really feel the urge to roll one up but I gave my stash to my friends - who still smoke. The main problem I'm dealing with is that I feel like I'm missing out on stuff. My friends go outside every night to our stonerplace and light up while I sit at home watching tv with my girlfriend. The only motivation I'm having is my dad that's going ot test me each month to check me out - If the test shows I didnt quit - I'm kicked out of the house. Anyways, long story short, sometimes a man gotta do what a man gotta do! We'll see how this turns out Greets
  • I have recently successfully quit pot after 15 years of smoking and several attempts to stop. I have managed to quit for extended periods of time in the past but that was because I moved overseas for a while and the stimulation of a new environment keeps you distracted somewhat . . .kinda like dealing with a heartbreak. Although I still managed to get through university (college) and became a teacher and traveled, worked hard and still live my life, I have never had a successful romantic relationship with someone I really really like and I am convinced it's because the lack of motivation stopped me going out as much as I should have and/or put off suitors once they find out what a pothead I was as let's face it a stoner is not the most attractive sight in the world. Not to sound conceited but I'm not unattractive, quite the opposite and get hit on alot . . .but still couldn't get a proper boyfriend that I really liked whilst smoking. Now heading towards my mid 30's I realised that if I don't stop smoking soon I would perhaps miss out on the opportunity to have children and a family of my own because of weed and I panicked. As it turns out we were having a real pot dry spell here the city of live in Australia, I could not get it anywhere for days, had no money (somethng a lot of stoners can relate too) and was climbing the walls out of boredom but then it just hit me. The hassle of attaining grass and all the negative impact it has had on my life in it's on insidious way weighed really heavily on me and I just snapped . . .right out if wanting it. It was hard guys,it was so hard but I did it and my life has never been better. Initially what left me anxious was dealing with after work time without weed. From 6pm - 11pm what the hell was I gonna do? How was I gonna sleep? Would tv or books keep me distracted? No not at all, that's a joke. So I did this, I got up at 3am everymorning so by after work I was so exhausted I would sleep a little easier. At 5:30am I hit the gym for 2 hours, swimming, weights, treadmill etc so my body and mind improved. Seeing my figure transform so magically and being so tired after work helped. I was busy and tired and looking better with each day . . .particularly the dark circles around my eyes and the greyness of my face - gone! Vanity can be a helpful thing to help one quit as well. Almost everyone I know smokes and I had to completely avoid all my stoner friends for ages even my own brother, if they wanted to see me it was at my place and no pot was allowed anywhere near me or my place. This is a must or you will crumble. I read heaps of forums like this one, I just did everything I could to keep away from pot and remind myself time and time again how pot has hindered my life. Sure it's not physical, sure it's mental but that's so hard to deal with as well. It took me a few weeks to start to see the light but god it was worth it. I can't regret my former addiction, it is what it is but when one day you eventually snap like I did . . .go with it, ride it out until pot is a nonentity in your life. My life is so much better soooo much better. Good luck! You're probably gonna need it. xx
  • Marijuana is mentally addictive and it is a bear to release anything you are using for relief, whether it be food, alcohol, or drugs. I have smoked for 30 years and I have quit over 20x only to begin again because you think you can control it this time-huge error! You cannot control something which you use to let go of control if you know what I mean. It will always have you never the other way around. I have begun to drink extremely heavily while smoking b/c eventually it is almost as if you are smoking cigarrettes. The potency goes away and you are left with a habit, something you do without even acknowledging or enjoying it. When people would say marijuana is a gateway drug I smirked b/c I never went further but then I innocently started keeping a six pack at home for friends and then NEEDED that six pack then 12 pack then a entire bottle of vodka. I know now comes the hard part huge feelings of depression, anxiety, and the feeling everyday that I can control it this time b/c I will not drink just smoke or I will use certain amounts that way I can control it, too much craziness just to keep myself from feeling scared of the world or whatever. If you have a shot to never try it do it. I am certain once you try it you will have introduced something that is like having tried ice cream, you can't imagine never having it again even if you don't have it for years, it is just hard as heck to tell yourself no once you've said yes. It takes months to start getting your emotions back in some semblence of normalcy but you are almost always stuck at the age when you started smoking in a weird way. I wish I had never gone there but that is pointless and now I can only try and release this again. Reading these posts help a super lot and I need to disagree about eating right for the first few days or for a while, the thing they do at detox centers usually is allow you to eat whatever the hell you want. It is almost a way to get over something you want with something you can control like chips, you may eat a whole bag everynight for days but mentally it's easier to release after a while b/c it doesn't seem as appealing as getting high and being one with the universe or whatever falsity we connect to smoking.
  • RIGHT NOW I,M REDING EVERY ONES COMMENTS .YALL ARE ALL RIGHT MY FAMILY LIFE IS GOING DOWN THE DRAIN EVERYDAY OF MY LIFE I HAVE A GOOD JOB GOOD WIFE GOOD LIFE,BUT SMOKING IS EFFECTING MY SEX APPETITE I THINK .HAS THAT GOTTEN TO ANY ONE... I,M FEELING LONELY WITH OUT NO CLEAR THOUGHTS... I WANT TOQUITE IVE BEEN PUFFING SINCE MY YOUNGER YEARS ,I,M NOW 33 AND WANTING TO PROGRESS IN LIFE,, THERE IS SO MUCH TO OFFER... WHAT TO DO
  • Marijuana is not addictive. Like others have said habitual, yes, addictive like cigarettes, no. It's not really that hard to quit. There are many things to do instead. Exercise, take up a hobby; just do something to keep you occupied. Marijuana is really more a social thing. If you cannot sleep and are going crazy not having it, perhaps you need to seek out a support group or someone that can help.
  • inorder to get to sleep, get more exercise throughout the day and get fresh air. I have not smoked in 3 months but i was not trying either, i just didn't think about it. Il smoke again not because of a physical or psychologic attraction to it but because I just dont see the point in avoiding it.
  • I have been stone cold sober since my 28th birthday last month. (A few days after.) I am experiencing paranoia, anxiety, xenophobia (fear of people esp. my teachers and peers at school;)an emotional roller coaster to say the least. I also have a hard time falling asleep and have also started to loose the desire to look at internet pornography. The ultimate challenge right now is dealing with people who are weed smokers that know that I am trying to quit. Every tuesday and thursday my biology teacher keeps pressing me on personal issues. I genuinely believe that he is trying to get me to snap (loose my temper). He has been getting personal information about me from other college professors. He went to Harvard and recieved a Ph.D. (allegedly) in research biology (I think that was it). He is also of Indian descent but claims that he is from Lousiana so he knows all the catch phrases from the south. Every time we [class] are in lab he bitches about people, constantly. He boasts over- simplified and generalized stereotypes and hyperextrapolates information based on his perception of the male gander role. For example, he claims that guys who take care of their bodies (ie: getting a mancure/pedicure/haircuts/massage etc.) and goto hair salons are metrosexual faggots. I have noticed that he plays some version of reverse pyschology on the right people at the right time. Half of me is pissed off and wants to kick his fucking ass (although I am not a metrosexual "faggot" or homosexual)and the other half of me says that it is his right as an American citizen to say what he wants. God I hate deciectful foreigners who come to America just to bitch about the way America is run. God I pray for the patience to deal with this fucker and not to tear him limb from limb. Also I have had to change all the people that I used to hang out with because they were acting like trash. Towards the end of my relationship with them all I started noticing they would talk behind my back, and my own best friend would try and arrange social confrontations between me and other known and unknown men. The one main lady who pissed me off pretty good had this complex from being raped by a guy while she was in college. Somehow she developed the idea (and got others to accept it) that I hated women. I don't hate women I just accept the fact that they can piss off a guy in ways that another man simply cannot do (unless they are gay). Then she started pulling the reverse psychology mind babble. Then another guy, who used to be cool, started scoffing at me during conversations as if I was too stupid to formulate my own opinion about anything he would talk about. Another guy would start making implications that I should attempt to sleep with his wife (although chubby she was attractive). Another guy used to physically touch his genitals then grab anything in sight(ie: video game controllers, television remotes, doorknobs, lighters, his face etc). He would then complained that he had a rash on his ass but he kept scratching at it and then he would start to complain about symptoms of pink eye. Looking back the most disgusting aspect of smoking marijuana was the blunt. I absolutely refused (towards the end of my ganja smoking career) to smoke an object that another person had completely saturated with saliva. My God! A person can have ghonorhea of the throat, mononucleosis or a host of any other contagious bacteria/virual infections; Not to mention the natural flora of microbes that can readily be found in their mouth at all times. Hell for all I know any one of those people could have just performed fellatio on a stray animal and then rolled a joint or blunt! And the same guy who had the "ass-eye symptoms" had his young girlfriend fucked by a huge cocaine sniffing psychotic Irish-American. Then they became friends again.
  • Hey also you should realize that MAry Jane Blunt is completely absent minded. Mary Jane has one of the main characteristics of an absent minded self absorbed loser. That is they attempt to create uncertainty. "dont ever quit, foo.. " Hmm. Must have fell asleep on the key board. Or was Mary Jane trying to communicate another type of message? Like don't ever quit food? Fool? Football? Who knows? We never will know. You see. Mary Jane needs some companionship so it wont be lonely in it's stupidity so it surfs down the information superhighway and arrives at this forum in hopes to recruit others for it's pointless cause.
  • This is for Anonymous (comment number 10). They said they smoked only for 2 months and are still paranoid and suffering from anxiety. I'm bipolar and weed can set off the symptoms. Maybe check to find out if you have a mood disorder.
  • That can't sleep stuff is in your head. Take Valerian root, two capsules before bedtime. Stop trying to make excuses to burn one. it's easy to quit. just stop, and wait three days for the attitude adjustment and two weeks for the mental adjustment.
  • I quit smoking pot a few years ago, and didn't have any problems. Smoked it for a long time, and really don't miss it that much. I'm more productive and clear-headed when I'm not using.
  • I have. I used for 11 years, non stop and it was hard. I went throught the lack of sleep thing, loss of appetite, and even profuse sweating. You just have to hang in there, it will get better, I promise you that! Once you do quit you will notice, better and more sound sleep, a heartier appetite, clearer thought processing, and handling of your emotions and life a little bit better. You have to remember that when you started using, a certain part of your brain slowed in its devlopment. That part is the part that handles your rational thought process, handling your emotions better, and an overall maturing process. It has taken me a while to see the difference but there is one and its way better....good luck and Godbless.
  • I smoked non-stop for a year. It's a mind over matter thing really. :) I cut back more and more and kinda winged myself away. Same I did with cigarettes.
  • I smoke ganja for 3 years every day, eaven several times per day. In these 3 years was only 4 or 5 days when I wasnt high. When I think "when was the last day, when I didnt smoke weed" I remmember one day 6 months ago. It is realy hard for me to stop smoking. I feel empty from inside, I cant think, cant concentrate. I cant eat, because food isnt tasty anymore. I cant sleep, I cant play pc. In fact I cant do anything without ganja. Marihuana is part of me. Stoping smoking weed is like cuting of my leg. I present my self as Rasta and I want others to look at me as Rasta- I AM RASTA. But if I will stop smoking I will not be Rasta anymore, but I want to.... It is so mentaly hard and people who dont smoke ganja, but talk about ganja deserve left hook from me. I feel like only you guys who have been true everything I have been true can say something useful to me. Hope you all will get from life what you want. Peace !
  • i just quit smoking three weeks ago after smoking for 8 months everyday ...i went through a bad experience of trying to pass a drug test (which thankfully i passed) but i nearly killed myself from water poisoning...i love smoking and maybe ill smoke occasionally someday but for now im enjoying sober life...after beeing high all day every day it started to fell like a norm...and now being sober feels like a high lol
  • There are variables to everyones addiction. Like how long have you smoked? How much you smoke? and what were the under lining reasons for starting and/or continuing? I did smoke marijuana for 13-14 years. everyday for the last 8-9 years, which set me back about $300 a month. add it up that's more than an electrical toy from best buy. that's a vehicle contract with a bank. I started in grade nine, some call it a pepsi habit or ice cream habit. (once in awhile) I had a step father that pushed my buttons and i believe i used marijuana like some obese people use food to hide there emotions. When i hear people say they just stopped with no problems, either they are lying or they are the wrong people to listen to. i'm de-toxing right now, it's not fun. I feel irritable, not motivated, depressed, i can't sleep, and very impatient, and head-aches. But everyday is better than the day before. It feels good not having to worry about having enough weed to last the week, not having to take cash out on my credit card for my habit. hang in there. it's up to you how bad you want it. Will power.
  • i have recently quit, i used to smoke it on weekends about a year ago then in april i began smoking it every day, all day. about 1 month ago i thought i should quit, i stopped hanging out with the people i smoked it with so much and started hanging out with new friends, i also put my money straight into the bank so i wasnt tempted to take it out and spend it. last week my mum found out about it and now i'm grounded so theres no way i can get it. i'm feeling a bit depressed and short tempered because i rely on weed to relax me, however, i may just feel like this because i'm being trapped in the house. i really over think things now and have found myself pushing others away but it should get better. i'm getting a bunch bag to let me anger out and for something better to do with my time, also i just get off the laptop and tv half hour before i want to go to sleep, have a bit of me time by reading or something. good luck :) i'm here if you need help :D x
  • I'm quiting!
  • Hey, I stopped a couple of days ago and I am confused about the reactions that my body is going through. The night after I hadn't smoked for the first time in 6 months.(I was smoking 6 times a day on average) I had terrible dreams of dying and I perspired through my sheets and my clothes. I dont even know if this is normal and I cannot find any information about it. This is my second serious try and the only substitute that I have found is working out and running. I sleep better after but it really is kinda hard for me. Maybe I have an addictive personality if that exists. Keep fighting the good fight and I hope that this helps even a little.
  • I took a 6 month break after 5 years of smoking - just to check if I'm not addicted. I quit the same day I got this idea. I had no problems. No that I am sure that pot is harmless from this point of view, I'm having less dopeackes while stoned.
  • I think people that think they can not get hooked on pot are in denial. I know alot of people that have smoked for years and when they have tried to quit it WAS NOT A PRETTY PICTURE!! They were really grouchy and down right nasty and mean. They could not sleep and noticed their sense of smell and taste were also diminished. Now I read where they are finding evidence that it damages sinus membranes. Maybe that is an explanation for the smell and taste part of it. All I have to say is I wish anyone that is living with someone that tries to quit good luck because it is like seeing someone you do not know. It gets like Dr. Jykle and Mr.Hyde- not a pleasant experience at all!! So PLEASE do not tell me pot is not addictive. This is just wishful thinking from all the smokers out there!! Good Luck to all, quitting or not- It is your choice,your life, your money "up in smoke!" I just say NOT IN MY HOME-PLEASE!!!
  • I have smoked Weed daily for over 15 years. I quit and is day 4. Last year I quit also, but failed and went back to smoking after 2.5 months. At that time I also stopped smoking tobbacco and did not start again. I told myself that I could manage to smoke one joint and it would be fine , it felt like the first time I smoked weed. It was awesome. Until I got more the next day and the next day. They say it's easy to quit weed, but they are wrong (at least for me) I had a chance to talk with an adiction counsellor who said after smoking for so many years my body has probably stopped producing dopamine . THC replaces the need to produce dopamine , which is also the chemical in your brain that makes you feel plesure. I was told until my brain starts producing the chemical again I would feel depressed, and it would take 2 - 6 months for that too happen. I have to agree with the adiction counsellor now , even tho I totally disagreed then! The last time I quit and this time I have had the traditional sweatyness , insomnia, depression, and yes stupidity. This time I am confident I will quit but it is much harder. I hope this post may help some of you give up ur addictions.
