11 weeks, trying & succeeding!

Postby EdenG » Sun Dec 31, 2017 7:06 am


Just thought I’d post a quick note to say that 11 weeks ago I managed to begin saying “no” to my nightly marijuana habit.
Prior to that day, I had been trying to cut down and quit for about 18 months. Cutting down just didn’t work for me. I have to be completely weed free for it to work.

I am smoking a few cigarettes per day, which I know some of you will say I shouldn’t be doing, but you know what?
I’m taking it easy on myself and by the end of January I plan to be free of tobacco as well. So far, so good in my eyes.

I’m insanely proud of myself for not smoking for the last 11 weeks and I am even able to be around friends who are smoking and politely decline when offered a smoke.

In the first couple of weeks I’d wake up in the morning soaked in sweat; I’ve got to say night sweats are not much fun! I also had pretty vivid, nasty dreams. I’m still having pretty vivid dreams, not nasty anymore thankfully; pre-marijuana my dreams were always vivid and I remembered them upon waking.

I had my long distance boyfriend break up with me about 7 weeks in to quitting and although I considered asking a friend for a couple of joints during that difficult breakup period, I didn’t. It hasn’t been easy, but it’s been getting so much easier since the 8 week mark.

I hope you’re all doing well with your own recovery =)

Thanks for reading!

Well, I'm not doing great...

I've been smoking almost nightly again for the past three weeks...
Only joints, not bongs, but it's still weed and it's depressing me :(

Hello Eden,

Keep on the fight. You can stop smoking again. I am at almost 3 months of weed free, and 3 weeks alcohol free.
You need to start your healthy revolution. During the process, and at the end, like a lot of people have said here, the only thing you will find is your true self and happiness. Isn't that great?

Hope you doing well,
