Voice loss after quitting weed?

Postby gogertie » Tue Feb 11, 2020 2:27 pm

I've had several go-rounds with quitting weed in the last few years. The longest stint was 9 months

My most recent was 5 months and then I went 4 months back on. Now I'm back to about 45 days quit. Quitting is so miserable, I always feel like I never want to start again when I'm in the first few months.

Having quit several times, I'm starting to notice a pattern: first 30 days I'm extremely lethargic and unmotivated, almost catatonic. I just have nothing in me and feel very FLAT. Could sleep for hours. Very weird, vivid and fascinating dreams.

Second month: Insomnia, hunger, starting to make a small dent in things that have been neglected, anger, fits of rage. Days of hollow-headed feeling...as if I woke up from a nap and need to smoke to make it go away.

But here's a new one that I experienced the last time I quit at around the 45-60 day mark and again now. I lost my voice. I'm a rather low-voiced female, and usually can just deepen my voice when I get a cold, etc. So the only two times in my life I have lost my voice, it's been when I quit smoking. I work in broadcasting, so if I have no voice, I can't work.

I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this...if it is truly due to quitting weed, or if it's just a coincidence it has happened. And maybe someone knows the science behind it. I'm curious!

I am experience the same thing right now.

I have been smoking weed for 10 years, back and forth but the last 2 years I have been smoking everyday.

I stopped in january and from around 45 days after I quitted I have lost my voice back and forth 3 times and a lot of hoarsenness to it.

I had it for 2 months now, have lost it three times and between that it when I have been able to speak it has been real hoarse.

I have been to a throat doctor today and they went down with a camera down my throat and they cant see anything for the cause. 100% healthy.

I think it is really strange, I just pray that it will come back the way it use to be.

How did it go for you, gogertie? did your voice turn back to normal?

Best regards

Weed withdrawals has really upped my voice. It used to be way deeper. It most likely has to do with muscle tightness due to the stress state.
