14 months

Postby mikeabbot » Mon Nov 05, 2018 11:18 am

Hey peepz!

Just a quick check in...

Closing in to 14 months being weed-free. I feel fine and most issues are gone except one thing that keeps coming back.
I'm emotionless or I still do not feel emotions the way I should feel it.
When I do stuff I love I don't feel it like I should. It's all bland and not that interesting.
The same goes with sex...I just don't feel it from time to time. A women's body doesn't look interesting.
I love doing music, but it is the same with that, I don't feel the emotions like I should.

Did any of you experience that even after that much time?

Thank you and all the best,
Mike

I've read a few others having the same, both on this site and other forums, this happens for alcholic addicts as well. But you recover from that also over time. It's one of the last at symptoms but a sign your brain is still healing. You still have too many dopamine receptors for things to be easily enjoyable. It's critical you do not slip away from staying clean.

Hey man well done for the 14 months.
I wish i can give an advise about happiness but still too early in my quit.
I have a question did the burning in your feet and neuropathy stuff go away and when?

Well the neuropathy thing is tricky. As far as I know, the feeling we feel in our feet is a symptom of anxiety and not neuropathy. That's why I went to a specialist and he explained everything to me. The only think he said is that it could be small-fiber neuropathy but he said that it will eventually return to normal.
My feet still have a weird feeling but I think that has to do with the back injury I have.

So I bet in your case is a side effect of anxiety and will go away. To me it was around 10th month when that particular feeling went away.

Good luck and stay strong!

Thks man for the reply.
I noticed that anxiety is the major problem when quitting weed.
Thks again for helping us new quitters.
And another question did the anxiety just disappeared or it was a gradual improvement.

I've been clean for 12 months now bar a single slip up.

I also hate being emotionless lol.
