I quit smoking this shit to try and return my brain chemistry back to normal after a decade of heavy use . If I "cheat" by eating a few gummies, would I be setting myself back? It's been about a month. And about a month before that. Getting IST has helped but I find it very hard to relax without it

    Do it could turkey bro, you can do it, it's hard now but eventually you'll find inner peace, and trust me, the feeling of getting relaxed just by being still, without cannabis or anything, it's incredible. Once you feel this, you'll never think about smoking again, trust me.

      Ya when I quit weed I need to quit weed, not cut back. I can't casually smoke it sometimes because that leads to smoking all the time.

    relax using saunas, they make people loosen up really easily
    also, relax using meditation or nature walks

      Me personally, my tolerance resets to rock bottom very quickly, same story as you, decade of heavy abuse (dabs, working with weed, etc). If you haven't smoked for a month, you could eat what you consider to be a few gummies and have a complete panic attack. Weed only works when it's every day because you need that little bit of tolerance for it to be enjoyable, but that's also how weed becomes a problem. In my humble opinion, you're already fricked, don't get back on it. Things will ever be as fun as they used to be, but they'll also never be as bad as they used to be.

      Also this, epsom salt baths are nice. Getting into a hobby you physically can't do while high might also help but idk what that might be.

          I feel bad for you if that's the case, cause my hatred for that feeling is part of what keeps me off it. But you probably should aim for total abstinence, I personally know it feels like shit to relapse and have to try again but it's a healthier mentality than being self-deluded into thinking you can control the addiction. Just forget the shame, that won't help you, just get back on your horse

    I'm on day 3 of quitting cold turkey as a longtime HEAVY user. Worked in the industry for a long time, but not anymore, and I'm sick of being in a daze 24/7/365.

    I got about 4 hours of sleep combined these last 2 nights and have eaten about 500 calories since. Good thing I'm on a cut, gonna take another day or 2 off the gym then get back in there.

    It's been hell but I actually feel good about it. I'm ready for change. I already feel much more alert and present instead of ruminating deep in my head about random shit.

    My advice would be to NOT start taking edibles. Your addict brain is trying to rationalize and justify ANYTHING to get you to start putting it back in your body. Just 1 edible man. Just 1 pack of edibles man, you can make it last a long time. Ok just 1 joint for this weekend, it's a special occasion.....

    Stay strong bruv.

      Same. Haven't smoked since Monday due to a cough but I think I'm gonna keep at it. Today was the first night I actually got full sleep and it felt amazing to wake up. I really can't believe I wasted the last year and a half being high nonstop.
      I don't think I'm gonna drop weed completely but learning to moderate it is the true challenge here.

      You're just bored. I was a 25 year everyday smoker until laster year when I quit cold turkey (for a work drug test that ended up not even happening). I started journaling and writing down why I wanted to smoke and what the benefits would. I found after a few weeks I couldn't even remember what it was like to be high or why I wanted to get high.

      Been clean for 9 months now. The first two months I fixated on when I could start smoking again. Now I don't even think about it. I still have insane dreams and can usually remember with detail 2 or 3 dreams a night. According to my sleep tracker, I went from 40 minutes of REM sleep a night to sometimes 3 hours.

      Congrats. The difference in clear headedness is night and day. Weed is fricking gay and should be banned.

        That's part of the problem. I still feel moronic when I'm sober. I was even sober 75 days in work release once and still felt like this. It's been years but I had been addicted to benzos for several years and I've been in plenty of coke and acid binges in the past. Starting to think I've permanently wrecked my brain which causes my resolve to waiver.

        This. People get hooked to weed and relapse because it floods their brains with dopamine and makes simple activities fun, not because they need it to relax. Good to hear your cravings are gone after 9 months, I'm at the 2 month park right now and I think I'm finally turning the corner.

    I don't understand getting addicted to pot. I go through 6m on 6m off cycles- tolerance builds up so quickly that smoking becomes pointless. It gets to the point where you don't really feel anything beyond the initial oxygen deprivation head rush. Yet I know so many people that continue loading bigger and bigger bowls even when they know there's no amount they can smoke to get high anymore.

    I assume it's just low iq behavior. Same with getting addicted to tobacco.

      Pretty low IQ take if you understood the mechanisms of addiction and root causes.

      Are you able to look beyond your own perspective and opinion? No? Seems pretty low IQ to me.

    I quit in 2017 but relapsed (if you can even call it that) in 2019 for a couple weeks just to reaffirm how nigtier this plant is. It doesn't make you relaxed, it just floods you with dopamine and then you want more. There is nothing more to it. Throw this shit away and don't look back. If you still want to simulate a weed habit, just set $5 on fire every day.

    I've been off it for 1 year next week. Wish I never started, oh well. I had some amazing cooms. If gf wanted to have high sex I'd probably say yes. It's just so good.

    Weed is the easiest thing in the world to quit. I legitimately have a harder time going without coffee. What are you all doing that's making it so hard to quit?

    did u "finally quit", or did you just decide to quit? If it was a struggle to quit, don't get back on unless ur okay with staying on.

    I've been getting into painting miniatures instead of getting high at night. Try new creative ways to relax. Practice an instrument or maybe gardening are things I also do sometimes to relax.

    If you can't moderate your usage, just never do it again. Yeah it kinda sucks, I'm in the same boat but that's just what it is.

    Take a handful of mushies, sit still in your warm shower and assess why you feel it is difficult to relax.

      Personally, doing shrooms just made me miss the weed high. Maybe it helps other people quit but I think if someone wants to commit to sobriety, they should just fully commit to it. I still drink socially sometimes but only because I know that I dislike alcohol and would never get addicted to it.

    I stopped for a few months then cracked and smoked and that was October of 2021. I've been smoking ever since. I was on probation for a year and smoked the entire time because they were only breath testing for alcohol, which I was also drinking but I was timing it. Never got caught amazingly.

    Don't do it.
