Hello people!

I'm so glad I found this. I can relate to almost everything here. Been smoking for 3 years, heavily. From the moment I wake up to the moment I go to sleep. Also, sometimes I've been doing some other drugs like cocaine, amfetamine, ketamine, mdma, pills, lsd and alcohol. Also I have heavily abused tabacco and caffeine. I started having these panic attacks about a year ago, but still kept on smoking. Just recently I had a really bad one. I didn't even have to quit, just the thought of weed makes me sick now.

I am 3 weeks clean now (except tabacco). Had a terrible headache almost every day, migraine probably. Random panic attacks, mood swings and depression. It's getting better now, because I changed my lifestyle. Started going to gym every day, eating properly and taking some vitamins.

But in these 3 week I have been experiencing something weird. Suddenly, I would feel this sharp pain in my head, I would get confused, had trouble walking straight, speaking and sometimes my face would go slightly numb. Also, I would feel a tension in my neck. All of theses things are symptoms of a stroke, but they also match migraine symptoms. Did any of you guys have this?

Another thing, when I look at a bright light and move my eye, I can see these foggy bits moving around. It's quite annoying. Is the vision damage permament?

Anyways, tell what you think. Are these things going to pass or should I seek professional help?

Thank you.

I think the eye thing your talking about is called floaters look it up on the Internet. It's harmless and nearly everybody has them only some notice them more than others..

I know about eye floaters, I have them too and I really don't care about them. But this is something else. It's like a blur. These foggy spots don't move around independetly, they are constantly in my vision an they go where I turn my eyes to (where floaters sometimes settle down and dissapear). Flaoters often dissapear if you try to look at them, because they are paricles inside the eyball and they float around when you move the eye. Sometimes this fog gets less visible. It feel like there is something on the front of my eye, on the lens. Maybe it's the migraine stuff?

Hey Guys!

This forum is the best forum i have found yet. So happy, that i found it and i think i will spend a lots of hours the next months-years reading here and hopefully even contribute to help others.

Nate, OP, your posts have been really great reading, and its really cool, that you have made so much progress. I think things will turn around: so accepting that it maybe never will be like before, is good, but we all still need to believe and fight for the possibility that things will be like before. And if im reading your posts correct, thats exactly what you are doing/thinking - so thumbs up from me.

Im 21 now, and i myself smoked for 1,5 year on/off, i went through periods without smoking and had no problems at all, until i started at university and after my first semester i didnt really feel like this study was right for me, so i dropped out, and i just made the stupid mistake and took a break from life a half year without job, studies or my good friends from college & family nearby. So i started heavily smoking and spending a lot of time with myself, and even though i felt bad, i still continued smoking until september. So yeah 5 months "clean" now even though i never felt addicted, just that i for a half year had this really bad habit, but maybe i was an addict, i certainly dont wanna smoke weed ever again. The last 5 months i mostly spend time alone in my apartment, trying to do what i think is right (so many doubts), but i dont really have a routine.

Besides, i dont go to my doctor at all (i dont want medication) or a therapist (because i dont like the concept), is that really stupid of me? I dont really think that is the right call for me, because im pretty sure, that my biggest problem is the lack of routine and that's what causes my symptoms combined with the withdrawal symptoms of course. I can relate to a lot of the symptoms stated here, but i did never really have or had insomnia, headaches, nausea or similar phsyical withdrawals symptoms - is that normal? Sometimes increased heartbeat, tunnelvision some time, anxiety pretty much, and a lot of time the feeling of not feeling anything or fractions of my normal feelings and a feeling of losing my self. But then again some periods are not that bad, sometimes i even feel really happy like in the old days. Most of the time im just overthinking everything and it can be really hard to socialise because of depersonalisation (i think it is) of my self and human beings in general. And yeah im also really concerned that my state will trigger other psychological diseases like skizofreni, bipolar or stuff like that or that im losing my self - does anyone else have the same feeling somestime? That you fear that you are losing yourself? And if so, how did you treat that?

But i feel hope. My biggest problem is as stated establishing a routine... and my overthinking combined with my anxiety just makes it really difficult getting started. Does anyone have a similar situation, in between stuff and scrambling to establish a routine?

Despite not consciously panicking about anything, the body mimics the actions of someone going into severe panic...this has started happening to me. Do you have a history of panicking or having anxiety? How long did it take for the attacks to completely stop?

I didn't have any anxiety issues before, I am pretty chilled out person. As you said, your mind is calm, but the body goes ape sh**. Racing heart, head pressure, problems breathing, numbness in limbs, weird pains all over and restlessness.
I don't know if they go away or get better, because I haven't smoked for almost 2 months now and I am never going back. It's just not worth it. I haven't felt better in last 5 years as I do now.

im on my 7th month of recovery iv taken buspirone since my fist month of recovery witch helped me so much but still I have heart palpitations some days more then others anxiety depersonalization fear and now im starting to have sleep issues not being able to sleep I do feel a lot better then I did but it feels like progress is too slow to be able to tell I had all tests done even on my heart by a specialist and they all pointed towards anxiety anyways thank you for your info it was more than comforting knowing that others go through this after quitting because not all experience these symptoms as bad as some I will continue to follow these posts during my recovery I just hope and pray that all of us going through these horrors will someday look back and see this as a blessing disguised as a curse .but at times I to feel that 7 months should have been enough time to heal by now but I did smoke high grade cannibus concentrates for 8 months all day every day so we should give ourselves enough time to heal also I feel the medicastion that helped me did not allow my brain to fully heal on its own so now im in the process of weaning down very slowly so I wont have bad rebound anxiety anyways hope your doing well and I hope my info helps anyone who needs it thank you again
