Month 9

God damn.....patience is a virtue.

Collosal improvements on every spectrum
.
Weight lifting at the gym has been the greatest aid in the recovery. Its like every weight I push I'm fighting all the symptoms. I hugely recommend this to everyone. Cardio didn't help as much as the weight lifting has. It also naturally increases confidence which is something that has been shattered in the whole process.

Wake up feeling refreshed and content. Brain fog almost a forgotten memory in the past. Not a single headache the whole month. Energy at stable and predictable levels which allows me to plan and prepare for the day. More decisive in daily situationss. My teaching capabilities tripled. Emotional connections to things and people improved. I thank the lord for my patience and motivation for that I'm most grateful. Sense of humor back. More social. No anxiety of if I will suddenly be hit with all the symptoms. Life's going good...I will continue as I am and post another update soon....I can almost say I'm back to normal...but lets not jump the gun

Patience and strength

Seeming as I'm on holiday for the next 10days thought I would post now.

Basically not much to report apasrt from I'm almost completely better....kind of forgot that I needed to post here as I kinda forgot I ever have a weed problem.

Its been about 10 weeks without a single symptom..maybe 2 minor headaches which were probably caused by hot weather and not enough water.

As emphasised before..weight training and then eating a lil more protein than usual has been the absolute game changer. Pumping your body with testerone and protein and blood circulation must kick start that recovery process into hyper mode.

Obvuisuly not 100% but I'm at about 90% and even cruising through at this I would be happy :)

Thank God there seems to be no lasting damages....the memory one seemed to be the most sczry one but now my memory is back to that of any normal operating person.

Will keep posting and updating

Good luck to you

As usual its been over a month since ive posted here as i just forget..
I am so swept up in the beauty of life..in enjoying such the simplest of things such as lieing down in bed reading a book...that my mind literally doesnt have the capacity to think about the trauma i have put myself through the last year with smoking and quitting weed...i am literally in a kind of bliss...

no brain fog
no headaches
good memory
making jokes
laughing at jokes
lots of energy
no afternoon naps
no nightmares
no body twitches or any strange things
got a girlfriend
go to the gym..have got a good body now
eating as healthily as i can
just about to take on a second job which may require me partnering with my manager in the company
no depression
no mood swing
no cognitive difficulty
no need for coffee

damn the list goes on...really people this quıitting weed sh** works and it has been the best decision of my life
oh and also i am 10 days clean off the cigarettes..

please people read my whole story and realise that your life can change

Times-

This is so great to hear. I'm a little over 100 days into my quit and it has definitely been tough.

I know I'm improving, but every time the PAWS come back and I start feeling down, my mind tries to trick me and tell me that I'll never get better.

I know I'll get better and I have to be patient. So glad to read your story and the positive ending. I will keep up the quit and keep my eye on the prize!

Biggest symptoms that are bothering me now are braing fog and the occasional depressive spell. I'm getting married in about 300 days (I have a counter lol), so my total days clean by then will be over 400 and I'm sure I'll be just fine!

Thanks Tokes!!!

I think at this point I've put the worst being me. I'm sure PAWS will come back but nothing I can't handle now. 5 months on Saturday :)

Really happy for you bud. Month 5 is almost half way to a year..keep going!
I remember a little bump around month 6 as your brain really starts to realise that it's not coming back...after that tbough I remember it being a much much smoother ride that the first 6 months.

How are you feeling on a day today? Up/down? Stable?

Let us know

Hey Tokes,

Thanks for checking in, I appreciate that!

I'm doing great these days. Next Monday marks 9 months clean for me and I'm feeling better and better.

You were right. Month 6 felt like turned a major corner on my road to recovery. I'm definitely not 100% yet, but I am getting closer.

I don't really have good and bad days anymore. I just have days haha. I have a little anxiety occasionally and brain fog on occasion, but I can easily deal with it now and won't let it bother me.

Really looking forward to hitting a year clean! Hope all is well with you.

Hi Akash,

I've seen you posting a lot on here and it seems like you're having a really hard time.

All I can say is just try and get to 90 days and You will see improvement. It will be very small, but it will be enough to keep you moving forward.

The more you dwell online reading these forums and obsessing about how you feel will only make it worse. Try and stay as busy as possible to keep your mind off the changes you are going through.

Exercise and meditation have been a huge help for me. I also take an herbal supplement called holy basil when my anxiety flares up. Definitely look into that.

Keep up the good fight dude! I'm almost to 9 months after smoking for 10 years! You will feel better. Stay positive

I would look at other causes for your problems if you just smoked weed for 90 days because I believe PAWs comes on from years of abuse.

ANYWAY I have relapsed. I smoked for the past 3 weeks continously everday like there was no tomorrow. I have to say I f***ing enjoyed it. Ive stopped now though again and I am on day 3.

As of yet 0 negative effects have come on and I am back to work operating and socialising just like normal. If anything I feel better and refreshed after 3 weeks of constantly eating and sleeping. It was great. I dont want this to sway anyones mind back to smoking but this is my journal and I am simply writing the facts as they come.

lets see how i feel after a week maybe ill be f***ed. last night was sleepless and i didnt sleep till 6 but ill hold off the tiredness for the rest of the day and get an early night tonight and wake up ready for work in the morning...which is teaching so not the easiest of jobs.

i am not going to jutstify what i did but ive done it and thats the way it is. keep the journal updated.

good luck to all
