        Literally same thing happened to my pothead gf (now ex).
        She was thin and hot when I met her. Still a virgin as well (yes, verified by the fact I popped her cherry myself).
        Didn't want to give up the pot though. Sure enough, whenever we got together to eat, she'd ALWAYS want some goyslop fast food like taco bell, and she always ate as much as I did. At first I didn't mind because her boobs were growing faster than her belly was. Then she just got really obese looking. Told her she needs to stop the pot and eat clean. Refused to stop the pot and would insist she could eat clean with pot. She'd "prove me wrong" for like 2 weeks, only to slip back into her goyslop diet.
        I eventually dumped her because there was no getting through to her. Only reason I stayed with her so long was because I was her first and I took a shitton of pride in that. Found out she was very pro abortion as well, which was the last nail in the coffin for me.

            You'd think that, and I didn't even believe her at first when she told me either. But it sort of made sense, she grew up in a very small town with mostly retired people, and her school was majority poojeets (thanks to Canadian immigration efforts) so she never had a boyfriend growing up. Ended up going to prom with the one white dorky autistic guy in her school she felt really bad for as well.
            She was of the belief you had to really love someone before you had sex with them, and as a result, I had to wait like 5 months until she felt like I genuinely loved her. By then, I already knew her cycle, and first time we went at it she definitely wasn't near her period.
            Also banged her on her period plenty of times afterwards. It's not even close to the same as hymen blood nor is the experience even close to the same.
            Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.

      I quit at the beginning of the year. The only downside to me is boredom when I have downtime. Otherwise, life is generally better.

      You are still very, very early in the recovery process depending on how much/often you were using. Quitting alone is not going to make your life better, it is just a stepping stone to creating a more fulfilling and productive life. I honestly think for people who cannot moderate their intake, that quitting is just a matter of when, not if. Most people someday need to step up to the plate in life and that is very hard if you rely on a chemical crutch to function.

          But still on a daily or close to daily basis? Daily use is a strong predictor of addiction. Honestly, relapsing and quitting over and over is the only way I was able to figure out that it was giving me anxiety, depression, and making me socially isolated. Not saying you should relapse but for some of us, the only way to learn is the hard way.

            I have this EXACT experience, but with porn/masturbation. I used to smoke heaps of weed, never gave me those side effects, quit it for years, nothing changed. Now I smoke semi-frequently, haven't had a toke for like 2 weeks and I don't really care. Never got addicted to alcohol and just quit cigarettes as well, easy as, no withdrawals.
            I'm really starting to think it's 100% psychological.

        This. Was in jail for 3 weeks and one of the only positives is that I'm clean sober now. Occasionally feel like drinking or smoking, but I'm sleepy enough to reliably fall asleep every night, maybe with some melatonin. Now about a month out. Still lethargic and feel shitty. But that's also bc of other problems I'm struggling to sort out.

        Just quit, and if you haven't started fricking don't. It's such a waste of time and money and you end up hanging out with complete morons. Drinking is also a big factor in ending up in jail and other legal problems. I'm willing to believe some can moderate it though, I just roll downhill fast after like 4 drinks

          Not him but how do you even start? I've tried weed so many times and I've never been comfortable being as high as other people like to get. Every time I wake and baked it felt like wasting a day and just got hit with feelings of guilt as soon as I sobered up. I know life these days doesn't require a whole lot of someone faculties to get by even in higher paying jobs but don't you just feel mentally blunted by it. Like you just don't have as much attention or brain power to spare? How do people live with that sensation and not be paranoid?

            >How do people live with that sensation and not be paranoid
            Because people are wired differently and a lot of people have very little self-discipline or introspection. In terms of the big 5 personality traits, you are probably high in conscientiousness and were probably raised in an environment that emphasized a strong work ethic. Very few people who are addicted truly understand they are addicted. Not trying to pick on this anon

            I workout consistently, run my own business, have an active social life, zero money problems(debt free), have my own house, and smoke weed just about every single day. I enjoy it and dont see a reason to quit. Moderation shouldn’t be that difficult. A loser that smokes weed will be a loser sober.

            and maybe he isn't addicted but saying things like "well I'm still able to be productive" or "I use daily but only at night when I'm done with work" are the types of things people tell themselves to justify their use.

              Im definitely justifying my use FWIW. Im well aware there are consequences to smoking everyday. I would definitely struggle with quitting cold turkey, thankfully nothings really pushing me that way. The hill im dying on is that weed isnt the root cause of most peoples problems.

                >weed isnt the root cause of most peoples problems
                Probably not but it's still a hindrance for a lot of people in forming better habits and improving their mental health. At least in my case. Dopaminergic drugs alter the reward pathways in the nucleus accumbens over time. Gabor Mate famously said that addiction is the progressive narrowing of the things that bring you pleasure. The endocannabinoid system is also tied to habit formation in ways that are not well understood yet.
                It's also just objectively not good for your brain and body in many other ways to use daily but as you said, there are consequences. Although, I think if you use very light dosages daily or large doses infrequently, you can offset that. The problem is that for many of us, if we use at all it is difficult to moderate in that way.

                Im sure somewhere out there is a picture perfect example of health, optimization, and performance. Eats and drinks all the right things and is not even in the same zip code as anything that could get in the way of that. If someone wants to pursue a life on that path respect and more power to them. I avoid alcohol for this very reason, I see it noticeably affecting things like my sleep, weight, performance negatively. All things I care about. I drink once a month maybe if its tied to some kind of social function but otherwise its not even on my radar. I just cant take that same mentality with smoking weed. Its hard for me to define and speak of it as a “problem” when the boat isnt rocking

    i quit a while ago tried to smoke last night and ended up jerking off to highly questionable content and have felt very "blank" all day. It kind of bums me out bc I used to really enjoy smoking weed, it helped me a lot of cool people, I was very fulfilled by creative activities, etc. but nowadays I find myself just jerking off and going to sleep with no kind of notable "experience" to be gained from it. I don't know if I'm just older, if something changed in modern weed vs. the old stuff, or if I just smoked too much and now it's become boring.

          Yeah and he was smoking flower on top of that. Always rolling blunts of course to maximize the amount of money he could flush down the drain. I went into his room one time and he had a little plastic container that had 20-30 empty carts in it which made me nauseous. This was before dabbing was popular in like 2017-2018 or something. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have a single brain cell left had he gotten into that stuff.
          He's big into alt cannabinoids like delta 8, HHC, and all that stuff because it's easy to get and cheap. You build tolerance very rapidly to those hemp products so I don't even wanna know how fast he must go through that stuff.

      Tried it once in a pen and once as bud. Bud did nothing but the pen felt better than actual THC to me. It was from a reputable place so ill assume it was not laced with some research cannabinoid but it gave me a warmer body high and was less anxiety inducing than weed.
      Ive smoked alot of THC and only HHC managed to give me the giggles and the stereotypical "dudeee im high 😛 :P" vibe youd see on a TV show.

      It felt moreish because it was the first time I had a weed pen so I just hit it randomly throughout the day like it was a cig. Made me randomly forget my backpack in random shops aswell

      your cannabinoid system returns to baseline after about a week. it’s much faster than the “golden rule” of 2 week T break suggests. the minimum 2 weeks came from HEAVY users i imagine. i have been using damn near daily for over 3 years straight now and if i dont use for even 4 days and take a hit i get blasted. i only get high after work. moderation is key.

    Stopping? I'm thinking of starting because I need some form of psychological release after the wagie grind (and because my soul has died). I took like two puffs from a friends joint and it was pleasant, plus growing seems like a super satisfying hobby but the problem is that it's highly illegal in my c**t.

      Oh its very satisfying and then you dont really need to pay anything for your weed, not that I know anything about it, since its also illegal in my c**t as well. Too bad Im out of weed, It really helps me not to eat as much, theoretically since its illegal here.

        Yeah I also want to smoke weed because beer is great but super fattening
        If I could get high like 4 days a month that would be super

          Yep, since I have to drink at least 12x 0.33 cans of beer to feel anything it really made me a fat frick. Spent a decade drinking every weekend and turned myself into a fat blob.
          Vaping weed during weekends really helps to keep the calories down.

      World is crazy fricky these days, weed is the only non-costly and non-frick-your-body-up thing I can enjoy that literally shuts off the "Why the frick would I bother to go out in the world tomorrow with everything this fake n gay?" part of my brain off at the end of the day.
      Never been big on daytime smoking, but do it on occasion now that I'm semi-retired and occasionally feel it makes yard work more enjoyable.

    used to hate weed, then I discovered that a 5mg edible on an empty stomach before going out for the night basically keeps me just as solidly buzzed and sociable as a night of drinking without any of the calories and way better hangover. I can even nurse a beer or two to stay social and it isn't so much weed that I feel crossfaded and wanting to puke.

    Quitting drinking beer since you have a pic of hops? I gave up beer a while ago, might have one or two a year, but that's about it.

      decreased prolactin, increased REM sleep (the important part, when was your last dream anon?), increased disposable income

      And more subjectively, increased mojo and power and motivation. "Oh that doesn't apply to me weed actually helps" If you've been smoking weekly or more often for over a year then you wont notice the difference until you get a couple months clean under your belt.

        My training has been fine for decades despite smoking nightly.
        I don't like dreaming, after years of nightmares of being shot in the face at point blank range, I prefer zero dreams.
        Disposable income isn't an issue for me. I grow and help some people out, haven't paid for it in years.
        Never had a problem with motivation, never skip the gym, ran a successful biz for 25 years and cashed in so I now live freely and have minimal involvement in the world beyond what I actually want or need.
        There aren't enough positives to make me want to quit at this point. I always figure that by the time I reach 60 I'll probably ease up, but 3 decades under my belt and smoking hasn't held me back yet.

        If you are smoking more than a miniscule amount everyday then it is hurting you, even if you can't actively see how it's doing so. Now if you use it on the weekends or a few times a week tops and you don't self-medicate with it, that is a different story.

          THC itself is bad for your heart and brain. Again, that harm is minimized when used in moderation. But daily use of potent modern THC really isn't moderation by any reasonable standard unless you take a small edible before bed or truly use one or two 3 second hits of a cart per day.
          Perhaps you don't have a problem and maybe you can use it responsibly long-term. But for many people, their use starts to creep up on them long-term and they can't function without it. Just something to consider. If you are thinking about quitting at all, there might be a reason for that.

    There is emerging research that daily cannabis use is associated with a significant increased risk of heart attacks, ischemic strokes, and other negative cardiovascular outcomes. There was a report from the American Heart Association and another by Stanford Medicine that have received quite a bit of press coverage. The AHA report argued that weekly or monthly usage increases risk as well, albeit to a much lesser degree. The Stanford report also said that taking genistein offsets the risk somewhat.
    As for brain health, there are many different areas of research showing how cannabis use harms neuroplasticity, especially in people under 25, increases the risk of developing psychosis, and alters reward and motivation pathways in the brain.

                I've never met a serious lifter who lifts serious weight while high. Sure, you can do some repetitive simple exercise like cycling while high but cannabis is objectively a performance degrader.

                you keep coming up with some soft ass weak ass excuses as to why people can be excused for being lazy fricks. it was the weed right?

                This kind of shit just reeks of desperation. I never once bothered arguing with people about the negative effects of weed during all the years I used it. If someone had told me back then "weed has X and Y negative side effects" I would probably say yeah that's probably true and just moved on.
                But guys like you feel the need to come into threads talking about quitting to defend it for some reason. Who are you really trying to convince here?

                You know what? It almost feels like it's a psychological thing, and not at all a chemical thing.
                >Honestly, relapsing and quitting over and over is the only way I was able to figure out that it was giving me anxiety, depression, and making me socially isolated.
                I have this EXACT experience, but with porn/masturbation. I used to smoke heaps of weed, never gave me those side effects, quit it for years, nothing changed. Now I smoke semi-frequently, haven't had a toke for like 2 weeks and I don't really care. Never got addicted to alcohol and just quit cigarettes as well, easy as, no withdrawals.
                I'm really starting to think it's 100% psychological.

                >feels like it's a psychological thing, and not at all a chemical thing
                I don't disagree really with what you are saying but what do you think drives your psychology besides chemicals in your brain? That dichotomy between physical vs. psychological addiction and craving is a bit strange and has been criticized by people like Anna Lembke who study dopaminergic drugs and addictions.

That is exactly the point I'm making, you use it and feel the need to defend it in a thread about quitting for some reason. There's many reasons beyond "weed makes me lazy" why someone might want to quit. Even though there is good, well understood reasons why cannabis negatively affects motivation.

                Yeah, I guess you're right. I don't know that the distinction is so useless when discussing psychoactive elements that do cross the blood-brain barrier. But the dopaminergic kick is real. I noticed the last few times I had a smoke I already felt happy before even lighting up the joint. Same thing as why I liked ciggies, it was the little ritual of lighting up and dragging on it and blowing smoke out.
                There's 100% shit that will get you hooked because of insane pleasure and really bad withdrawals, like most opioids, intense stims like meth or crack, and also benzos for the bad withdrawals part. So a chemical addiction is definitely real.
                But when you consider an extreme example on the other side, like for example obesity stemming from food addiction, it becomes much less clear how much of an "addiction" is psychological (ritual/habitual) or chemical (pleasure inducing).
                I think in general, habitually speaking, temperance and moderation are important, as is balance. If you're hyper-productive, I suppose a case can be made for daily smoking if it doesn't stop you from performing and helps you relax.
                What I found with daily smoking is that the CBD builds up and builds up and ends up being so overwhelming that it's no enjoyable at all, so smoking once a week or every two weeks is my go-to, and I don't think about it outside of that.

                >it was the little ritual of lighting up and dragging on it and blowing smoke out
                Yeah, I have a very deep nostalgia for this ritual myself even though I've quit for 4 months and basically was only doing edibles and carts before I quit. Something that dopaminergicly powerful leaves a strong impression in the nucleus accumbens.
                >it becomes much less clear how much of an "addiction" is psychological (ritual/habitual) or chemical (pleasure inducing)
                It is pretty well-established now that cannabis is both although much less physically addicting than those other drugs you mentioned. The thing is that while those more powerful chemical addictions are harder to stop immediately, there is some evidence and anecdotal experience to support the idea that psychological addictions from milder drugs like cannabis can be hard to quit in the long run because the detrimental effects are not as readily apparent as harder drugs. The other thing to consider is that everyone is wired a bit differently and for some people, cannabis truly is their drug of choice and the hardest thing for them to moderate usage of or quit.
                I think if you can use weekly or biweekly and truly do not crave it more than that or lean into self-medicating when life gets difficult, then that is probably fine and not really a problem.

                >I've never met a serious lifter who lifts serious weight while high
                True. It would be dangerous as frick to get under a heavy bench or squat stoned. I've done machines and dumbbell arm stuff high before and it does feel good but your performance is clearly down. Prob never gonna do it again

            Who under 30 in the US hasn't smoked weed at some point besides a Mormon? I smoked for years. Yes, obviously you can be an unproductive loser without weed. No one has ever said otherwise, that is just a strawman argument made by stoners.
            It is objectively true that heavy and/or frequent cannabis use alters the reward pathways in your brain. The endocannabinoid system is heavily involved in both motivation and how your body regulates your mood. I'm not sure what you mean by "does nothing?" Are you saying it doesn't even get you high or it as no negative side effects at all?

              >all stoners know this!
              you keep coming up with some soft ass weak ass excuses as to why people can be excused for being lazy fricks. it was the weed right?

              Not the same anon but the other anon is trying to say weed is a negligible factor when it comes to a person's downfall. Its not like gambling where you are literally throwing your money/life away at the expense of having fun. You are trying to make it like as if weed has the ability to change a person's life when in reality it has little to 0 effect in the choices a person makes when it comes to their life.

    I stopped for 3 months for a hair follicle test and realized how much I hate living in Italy if I can't smoke weed. imagine living in a country where 70% of people is old, there is nothing to do, even youngsters act like old weak people. my only escape is working out and blazing hash while I'm reading history books at night.

      If you have 2 weeks time, you can easily pass the hair follicle test. There has been ONLY 1 or 2 studies done on this but it works in practice. Look into hair relaxers. I say 2 weeks because you can only apply these relaxers once a week, otherwise you might melt your hair off your scalp

      This is really true and the hardest thing about quitting for me. Knowing that I could probably have more enjoyment and less boredom out of using weed again but also knowing that you pay a price for it and your overall mood is lower.

    Had some exams so I quit for like 1,5 week. Other than the month before that I've been sober for almost a year. Found a place where I can legally order that shit so I don't think I will quit permanently. I still exercise regularly, can focus on my stuides so don't see a reason why should I put it down.

    Was smoking almost every night for 1-2yrs. Stopped for like 2 months because I got a bit bored of it. Only thing I notice is I sleep a bit better. Now I just buy a gram every 1 or 2 months and smoke it in a week but it's still lost its spark every time I do. It's kind of hard to not smoke when I have it but it's very easy to not buy it.
