Another One Bites The Dust

Thanks NatureGirl! Yup, 6 months, who knew? I for sure have had ample time for that deeper look on myself haha.

Speaking of which, would you say that weed changed you? You seem to be surrounded with some old friends, or acquaintances, and maybe some who do not smoke - would you be able to ask some of them who ve been knowing you for very long, if they find you different today?
What i m trying to know is wether or not our attitude towards "companionship" in life is the result of our path, or something that was kinda there from the beginning.

As a teenager i wanted a significant other in my life, but when i had one, it wasnt very long before i started to get a little bit bored of them. Somehow, while being happy having them, i ve never ceased contemplating the idea a life "without" them - and that idea has always been a tempting option.. So now, i enjoy being single, but i m wondering how much of a role that weed thing (and its effect on our social habits, cognitive abilities and more) has in this :)

Amazing sounds good!

Bravo for letting your body res: what are your sleeping hours?
I wake up naturally 6 hours after going to bed, though i wish i d sleep longer - i m told i should put myself to bed earlier.

Thanks for useful update
Sorry for the headaches: were you prone to them "before"?
so brain keeps on healing after a year, that s crazy how gradual that is right?

Weird indeed. I relate with tooth pain too: never had anything, and dentist confirmed a few month ago that i had nothing there, yet i feel pain regularly. I didnt think it could be related to MJ, but now that you mention that.. Are you taking any painkiller? MJ used to be quite efficient to numb pain in the brain - that s why i kept some in case.

So you sleep like 9 hours, wow, that s cool!
I feel quite tired after 6 months, and could easily go back to sleep right after i wake up, you still have that after 1 year?

Ive heard of tooth pain but i think hopefully its gonna be last of paws.. At 6 months i didnt feel rested like i do now..i hated 6months cause i was so achy and i couldnt go to bed but i was super tired all the time. Yea i get eye pain with my headache too but i remember feeling this at 4months.. I do feel overall very happy..only painkiller i take is motrin..im also a recovering opiate addict so i cant take anything else.. I take prozac which i started at 9 months..hopefully at my next check up i can see how i do off meds.. I smoked daily for 18years..so i guess it wouldnt be as easy as i thought

I see - indeed you ll have quite a few new molecules to get rid of at some point - although they seem to have helped you well in the meantime. From your symptoms, it sounds like you suffer from migraines, are you prone to them? (i am, and weed would help there, not always but often)

It s cool to hear you re being monitored - does your physician know all about your habits?

I had migraine for a year (daily occurence, one sided, pain in the eye, tears, lasted for about 1hour, then gone) before i (a doctor that i reluctantly went to) put a name to it. Acupuncture fixed it for a while, then weed too. Now i just try to relax when i feel it coming, mostly successfully.

Update - funny but since we talked about it, tooth pain sort of disappeared (posting this as a reminder) - not sure if anyone else had that, nor what it was from, but sure hope it wont come back..

Doesnt sound like a bad idea to come off of any addictive med for sure - keep us posted!
