27 months quit - i give up

Postby 2yearquit » Fri May 18, 2018 9:51 pm

Things are good guys thank you all for your responses . Hopefully this reaches some people that are early in their quit And people a little further down the line between 1-2 years quit and still feel terrible and feel like the only option is to go back smoking to feel any sort of relief.
I have been there I felt so hopeless even after 2 years. I was still going through paws the ups and downs, the absolute black hole of depression. The feeling I had screwed myself up forever but things turned around and I can say without doubt to anyone things will change for you too.
I was a party animal for 15 years weed everyday , alcohol at the weekends and a lot of blow and x when I was in my early 20’s tapering off the class a’s in my early 30’s. Weed was always my drug of choice I could not go 4/5 hours without smoking and smoked 10-15 joints daily( high grade mixed with tobacco ) . I experienced every symptom mentioned by the countless sufferers looking for answers on this site and can report now after almost 32 months they have all but disappeared. It just took time my friends. It is hard to put into words the pain I went through it feels almost like a dream looking back over the past couple of years . Please if anybody has any questions post on this thread and I will reply.
Stay strong there is no going back you must push forward no matter how badly you feel it’s the only cure.

Hello 2year quit,

Did you take any kind of supplements, diet or exercise that you think help you recover? or is it just plain waiting it out?

Hi guys ,
Just a quick update I am one month away from 3 years off weed and All i can say is there has been a huge turnaround in the past 6/7 months. The brain fog , depression, feeling off hopeless has all cleared up and i can say without doubt that all you need to give this is time. I really thought I had done permanent damage as i was a very heavy smoker . So please dont give up i still felt like sh** at 2 years and for me 3 years was the magic number. Best wishes my friends I wish you all a speedy recovery it is worth it and I promise just give it time you will heal!

I second Bagobones. So DAMN inspiring! SUPER proud of you!

I am almost speechless. The strength to quit and stick it through after such a long period of time!!! That gives us all so much hope and resilience just reading that!

Would you be willing to talk about the various things you did along the way that "helped" the process? Obviously, we all agree that time is the best medicine for this kinda recovery. But were there things you did or had taken that helped alleviate you a bit?

You rock!

What an inspiration... thanks for sharing this with us. It just illustrates the point so well that this is no small feat for anyone, at whatever stage. I'm one week away from 5 months and this makes me realize what is truly possible. Just this evening I was imagining possibilities that seemed (and tbh, still seem) insane to me, yet there they were. There IT was...hope.

Here's to you!

That’s great news and good to hear. I’m nearly at 2 years clean and still not there yet. The last two months have been getting easier. I’m hoping another six month I’ll be there.

Do you think going back to weed will help? You might be disappointed.

Just wanted to make a post on this thread again so it reaches the top and others who recently joined the forums and in need of help can read 2yearquit's amazing story.

For those who recently joined to this forum, PLEASE read this story. Know that if you have quit already and are months or even 2 years into PAWS recovery and feel like crap, know that 2yearquit stuck it through and finally healed after 3 years. Took a long time but if someone like him who went 15+ years where he didn't have at least 4 joints a day can heal, then we all can as well.

Don't know if 2yearquit will come back. His last post on this thread seemed to indirectly imply that he just wants to say goodbye and leave this all behind (I don't blame him). But I'm glad he did drop in the 7 times he did to give us all updates. Great story and I wish you all the best, 2yearquit!

Fight on!

Hi Bull frog thank you so much for posting I don’t check this site very often any more but for some reason I decided to check in this evening and your post had put my thread back to the top.
Let me go back 3 years I spent hours on this site daily reading through stories looking for answers because I couldn’t understand how on earth I could feel like this after quitting weed, my life was turned upside down as soon as I put down that last joint. I suffered horrendous depression , depersonalization, brain fog , sleepless nights then wanting to sleep all day and the worst feeling was been unable to communicate with anybody I felt brain dead and without hope.
I read and read stories on here about how people were cured after 12/18 months and I didn’t feel any better than I did on day one. When I got over two years I was honestly really disheartened but the thing was weed was not going to make me feel better at that stage I had no choice but to push on through and it happened for me around 27/28 months I started to come around. I felt the paws were lifting , I started to get stretches of 2/3 weeks of feeling pretty good that would then be followed by a couple of days of heavy depression/paws . As the days that followed turned into months I don’t have any of those feelings anymore and as I write this I’m 37 months clean from weed and it feels awesome.
Weed cost me so much for something that started out so harmless including friends, relationships and my business as I was so overwhelmed I was unable to work for over 2 years.
This is no easy task my friends and for those starting out I really sympathize with you but know for a fact that it can be done and YOU WILL HEAL AND FEEL NORMAL AGAIN- I’m living proof.
With that I’ll say goodnight and I promise I will keep an eye on this thread if anybody has any questions they would like to post.

2years I agree with everyone else that’s posted in that you are truly an inspiration. Throughout this process did you take any supplements or aids, or was this driven down to just the time and patience?
