Weed PAWS Question

Postby Robb1e_g » Sun Feb 18, 2018 5:14 pm

Hello, I've posted a few times in this forum with great reassurance and for only being 3 and a half months clean I can say right now I'm feeling much better already. However I had a question and wondered if anyone can relate;

Has anyone needed reality checks while they were abstaining from weed? I know a lot of people feel like they're going crazy (which I can relate) but does anyone have any sort of delusions like they feel that reality isn't quite right or doesn't feel real? Almost like you're detached and nothing really makes sense? Almost like it's a video game sometimes? I know I suffered from some dp/Dr and I know it's not true but my brain believes it sometimes .

Also, I've felt guilty over having thoughts of not being able to live anymore back when it was really bad and the thoughts sort of haunt me in a way, I guess I'm just extra paranoid about having feelings like this again or ever in the future because I've never had those thoughts or been depressed before and thought that, I'm a very bright ambitious person who loved life and I hope to fully return to that once I'm through with withdrawal.

I would love to hear some feedback with any similarities from anyone as these are the only two things that really bother me so far.

hey robbie. i can definetley relate to that. i feel ashamed and disappointed of myself. espacially as i talked to my gf about my suicide thought and i am now afraid that she thinks that she can not rely on me, espacially when it comes to having a family. i wouldnt even blame her for that. would you like to start a marriage, a family with a women that frequently mentioned the urge to kill herself? i wish that i never had those thoughts and especially never told anybody about it but we cant change what happened and have to try to live with it. i also never had such a thought before my paws started, never had depressons or any other mental issues. those thoughts are not your real you, its all the paws, once you recover that is gone. when you feel bad, make yourself aware of that.

Totally relate to this. I have failed once around 3 months (101 days) due to thinking that feeling would never pass. Most over drugs its like week, unfortunately with weed it takes 6-9 months to feel fully reset.

It does go away, but you have to just take the days one at a time and feel good when you have a good day and enjoy those moments, and don't beat yourself up about feelings are no improvement, making posts and reading them back helped me a lot.

Wow thanks guys, I'm happy to know I'm not the only one who felt that way. I'm glad this forum is here so we cam help each other. If I were all alone through the worst of it I don't know where I'd be right now. I really appreciate the replies guys, but I know we all will get through it and I can't wait till the day I look back on it and laugh about it.

can totally relate to you quitting buddy. im also not like these before weed. Having depressive/ anxious thoughts that hard to describe. that you want to shake it off out of your mind/ forget it but its kinda haunting you... Idk if thats what youre experiencing also. I know its anxiety. I also experience nausea most of the time when experiencing this anxiety

Yep that's exactly how it feels. Like theres always something wrong, things feel darker like you're doomed, to where you get sick to your stomach. That's normal, all part of withdrawal.

I dont know how long you smoked for but everyone has different recovery times. What is a fact though is that everyone recovers after 2 years. Also after around a year you notice many improvements. I was afraid of having PTSD as well actually, but in all reality it Is just anxiety. That's the worst symptom when going through post acute withdrawal syndrome. But I promise everything gets better in time man.
