That's like losing 20 stone and feeling trim, then thinking, you know what, I might put weight back on just to see what it felt like....


Not quite. Its like losing 20 stone then saying "maybe I can eat pizza and a donut today for lunch" which is fine as long as you are still disciplined about exercising and wont do it every day.

Its like Gerre said, you have to be in a different place in life which I am.

You can only try I guess. My mantra is if you use anything without it being your solution to problems then you're less likely to develop problems. Best wishes

Good point, hopefully by the time I have been off weed for a number years I wont even want to smoke occasionally. I guess I just really like having the occasional J with my best friends

Let’s be honest to ourselves it’s not the same as pizza and donuts. Food is necessities and weed is not.
I had to realize the addict mindset and answer the question what makes me numb myself with drugs? As for as managing anxiety and stress sadly there is no pill or remedy for anxiety that you can pop or puff and it will go away. Have to learn the hard way how to manage it.

Ive been reading your posts for awhile and I remember after you had quit for awhile you smoked for a few days and that aggravated your PAWS. I think that will happen again if you smoke, even after 3 years quit. I dont think its worth it.

Smoking will be a huge mistake. You'll be adding on months to your recovery clock. Its a minimum 3-5 year process for your mind, body and soul to rewire itself. Don't ruin all the progress you've made for a few hours of feeling high, is that necessary?

Many people comfort eat to the point of compulsion despite the negative effects. It's the mindset in nearly all cases of psychological dependence that matters. You can eat pizza etc and not have any but if you eat them or other foods to make yourself feel better then you're heading for trouble. Whether neccessities or not we make choices and one of those is to address the underlying problems so you can enjoy things for what they are, not what they do. You are right about anxiety...you have to learn to manage it.

The consequence of eating Pizza or food addict and a drug addict are not the same. Base on my personal experience for past 3 years I would not want anyone to go through weed PAW.
At the end we all make choice and have to live with those choice. Weed is a drug and has the potential specially with there new genetically engineered brand fo destroy life.

I think it's important to accept that it is your experience because not everyone gets this PAWS. Maybe it's the newer strains because I didn't get any real withdrawal and I smoked a lot of weed/hash and for a lot of years.

Then that isn't weed, that's mankind that has done that. Looking for higher THC and more profit is based on greed and feeding in to our selfishness. I would never smoke shatter/ wax or concentrate because I respect my brain. Perhaps that's the difference but you can't blame the plant fella. That's like blaming alcohol for being an alcoholic.

Yes, this is true and is why if I smoke, it’ll be at least 6 months after I have been completely symptom free. I am still not symptom free so I’m not planning it anytime soon or anything. When I did smoke it set my “clock” back 2-3 months. Setting my symptom “clock” back a few months is something that happened many times over the past years, even when I didn’t smoke.

It may aggravate paws again after one toke, in which case I’ll give up weed for life. But yes, I will be waiting at least that 3-5 years before I even think about trying again.

Hi guys

Sorry to go offtopic. But did any of you get vaccinated for Corona and did you notice any difference in your your sexual issues and healing afterwards?

Reason being im in the same situation as you, dealing with PAWS sexual symptoms for more than a year, and I need some possible guidance for taking the vaccine or not.

Thanks

Under no circumstances do you take the Kill Shot.

It will be your undoing.

Anyone who had the vaccine who wants to chime in? And if you don’t want it, what is your specific reasons for it?

There definitely could be a risk by not getting it also.

Look, the injection is meant to harm you. These people pushing this agenda are NOT your friends. This has nothing whatsoever to do with health. Turn off your tell-lies-to-your-vision. Major social media sites are strongly censored for any information that goes against their agenda. Do research on other platforms. This concoction is seriously injuring and outright killing people, with numbers bigger than they claim are affected by the Convids, which number itself is a lie. SarsCoV2 is not isolated. The RT-PCR test is being fraudulently used. CDC even admits to not having the "virus" and that the test is "faulty".

The risk is being targeted by your government.

I consider myself a sceptic in many things and have no trust in governments generally. I also believe in some conspiracies such as 9/11 but with this issue, I don't think there is anything sinister. I am a nurse and have given vaccines of many types for decades. I have been given this jab and other than effects you usually get and should get, I am fine. The problem with the net is you can find absolutely anything that supports your belief and can even sway it.
Bill Gates isn't a bond villain trying to control us or kill us with a vaccine... why would he? Many believe the earth is flat... it's not, but the net can find reasons why it is and it's a big lie.
I do think we are being socially engineered to give away our lives to surveillance by technology and many see no harm it nothing to hide etc... I think that's foolish. Anyway, back to this... can you provide any serious and critically examined information to support your kill shot belief? Not an obscure website that just spouts it's own agenda... thanks
