Weed Withdrawl 5 months in and feel crazy

Postby baggyjeanzz » Thu Jul 06, 2017 9:19 am

So I'm 20 years old, I've been off weed now for 5 months, and not to sound melodramatic but fucckkkk me, has it been hell. Came off it initially whilst working away and didn't take a supply with me, unrelenting anxiety kicked in like nothing i'd felt before. For whatever reason I didn't associate it with coming off weed and went back to it upon arriving home. Started getting anxiety when smoking a bit but then everything seemed to go back to normal. Went away again then BAM anxiety came back with a vengeance. This time I stopped for good, and after a few weeks of awful anxiety started to feel a little better, in one on one situations. Although since about 3rd month in, have felt completely exhausted, low mood, emotional numbness, (might have something to do with the fact that I started smoking to block out feeling after break up), completely joyless and unable to experience any excitement, feel constantly disassociated and brain dead. I'm an actor and auditions have become near impossible as my nerves get the complete better of me now. The worst part is by thoughts seem so scattered, in the sense that everything reminds me of something from the past and most of my thoughts are things that i've heard in the past, don't know if that makes sense but it's hard to explain. Been speaking to a therapist occasionally and he seems to think my brain is just rebalancing. But i'm terrified it's schizophrenia. Also been experience PE since coming off weed, was also addicted to porn which might have affected that but not sure, either way i've stopped that as well. Feels like i'm watching my life fall apart in front of my eyes. Any words of wisdom would be much appreciated.

Baggy Jeanzz.

PAWS can come in waves during the first year of quitting. I have had TERRIBLE anxiety since quitting like two months ago. Insomnia, DP/DR, Heart rate racing the works. It is slowly getting better though.

The thing that conforted me is that Schizophrenia is REALLY rare and genetic.

Yeah I've heard, f***ing frustrating though, when friends of mine have quit and say how they feel better than ever! Yeah first few months are pretty rough, but hang in there man! I still experience DR but no insomnia, if anything I sleep to easilLy.

Yeah, I know try tell myself that, but then start thinking of sh** I do like repeating what people say sometimes, and the way my brain connects stuff. Also my great uncle had it so that plays on my mind. Just gotta hope it all goes away I guess

It'll be ok. I hate feeling like this still after two months and it HATE people that get to quit and walk away feeling jolly and clear.
