2 years clean of weed

Postby SparkleFly12 » Fri Apr 23, 2021 10:32 pm

So its been 2 years and 2 months since I quit weed. My other thread "80 days clean of weed" I started a yeah and a half ago doesnt seem appropriate any more, so starting this one.

Actually has been close to 3 years of weed PAWS; because I started smoking again after a few months multiple times; thinking I was better. I wasnt, and each time it just restarted my sypmtoms to their worst. so its now been 2 years 2 months from the last time I did that.

Things have gotten a lot, lot better. Still not 100%, but I am close. On my bad days, Im at 90%; my good days Im at 100%.

My remaining symptoms are:
-Mild headache around temples
-Swollen lymph node in jaw
-Low libido / ED

They are all mild and come in waves. Its

I cant believe its been 2 years - when I first quit I thought it would be 3 months tops. Its really the slowest, longest most drawn out thing Ive ever experienced. But I do feel a LOT better than I did when I first quit...the first 6 months were hell; followed by 6 months of pain; then 12 months of discomfort; and the last couple months its been an annoyance.

debilitating headache
Severe insomnia
muscle soreness
brain fog
inability to form sentences well
Scary/vivid dreams
Low libido/ED
pain around eyes
swollen lymph nodes

Glad to put this all behind me; hopefully in another 3-4 months Ill be 100% better.

Cheers all. Just remember, time is the only cure for weed PAWS.

Congrats! That’s a big milestone. I’m at 5 months pushing on. I have swollen lymph nodes too, they come and go. Lots of random joint/bone pain, malaise, can’t sleep getting jolted back awake with chest pain, etc. I’m slowly getting there too. 2 years is really something to look forward to.

Almost 2.5 years now, and its a bit better. Still have a few days with mild headache or poor sleep or ED/low libido but its fewer days than before, and less than half the days.

Starting to feel more normal most of the time, which is good. Hopefully by the 3yr mark I'll be completely free of this. This may be controversial but I am probably going to introduce weed back into my life after the 3 yr mark- not daily use but with friends or socially. I'm not worried about using regularly ever again, I am not even worried about that in the least. But weed does do wonders for my stress levels, something I'm struggling with now. But we'll see, maybe weed will not be to my liking anymore as it reminds me of paws now.

Cheers all, hope you all feel bettersoon.

Thats sucks; but Ive been there. Stick with it; go back to smoking and you know you will just be postponing all this pain to a later date.

Do you remember this SparkleFly? Why take the chance? I mean, it's your call but why didn't you control it then and use socially if you could now? Just playing devil's advocate.

Totally agree with tokeless here. It's your decision, but remember you're putting back into your body what took 3 years to get out. There are so, so many options to reduce stress levels than smoking.

How long were you smoking for and at what age did you start?
