15 months PAWS

Postby Eroica » Sat Aug 22, 2020 5:01 am

Been off pot since May 2019 and still feeling some lingering PAWS. A lot of anger, obsessive thoughts, low libido, constipation and low motivation. Also occassional depression. I also get massive cravings when somebody walks/drives by on the street smelling like pot. Im eating right, exercising, being busy but still I dont feel right. Im going to give it another year but I really hope by the end of next year PAWS will be over or is that asking for too much?

Hi...thanks for the reply...17 months now and still not feeling normal but my libido has improved. Still miss smoking and the relief it brings. Still suffering from constipation, anxiety, and lack of motivation.

Just keep going. I'm with you. Sounds like you are doing things right. TheGreatDane wrote a great recent post. It took him over 30 months but is now good.

Lingering is a good word. I'm at 14 months, and it's just like it's always there in hanging on to me. Like I'm close to normal but I can't shake the last of it off. I think it'll work out in time.

All this is issues with self esteem and self confidence, these things will get better over time and with practice.
