Finding weed withdrawal tough

Postby tryagain68 » Tue Oct 24, 2017 8:05 pm

I've been smoking weed and tobacco for 30+ years,and my partner has asked me to stop, both tobacco and weed. I'm 15 days off weed now,but I'm really struggling .My work requires a steady hand,concentration and un blurred vision,plus I deal with the public lol my vision is blurred ,I can't concentrate and I keep crying,plus I feel anxious pretty much all day.
I know I should be so glad I've quit ! But the hot and cold sweats, vivid dreams and lack of appetite plus all of the above are driving me nuts . I'm taking a herbal sleeping tablet at night so I can get enogh sleep to do a days work.
So , tomorrow I'm getting some vitamins, cod liver oil, replacing alcohol with water and fruit juice, taking some walks and most of all, stop feeling sorry for myself !
All I really want to do is sleep until it's better,but I guess that's not an option.
Hopefully in a couple more weeks I can come back and tell you how great I feel that I've quit.

Hello Tryagain, welcome and a big well done so far, 15 days is a real achievement after smoking for so long.
I smoked weed for about 30 years too, chronic/daily for most of that time. In a couple of days I'll reach 7 months weed free! I'm feeling better all the time and have no cravings what so ever. It sounds to me that you're doing all the right things, just keep going, you've got this!
Good luck and much peace to you,
Rik.

15 days. That's great. I've seen people giving up after merely 2 days. Way to go!

Great news! Exercise helps tremendously!! I'm not really getting the night sweats anymore.. Thankfully.. They will definitely pass for you. I am having a ton of odd dreams though

Hey man you can do it! We all believe in you. If others can do it, so can you.

Pretty soon 1 month will turn into six months, then six months will turn into a year, and pretty soon it'll be five years without weed and you won't believe it. Just as with any challenge in life, the moments go real slow, the days a little faster, the weeks a little faster still, and the months and years go the fastest.
