Got an Answer?
I don’t do drugs or cigarettes but I have stopped drinking (just one of an evening with a meal), stopped caffeine (up to 3-4 per day). I’m in the process of giving up processed sugar ( that includes chocolate).
You have developed a habit to stop it go cold turkey, tell yourself you are not going to smoke it anymore. Have a ritual where you finish the weed you have. promise yourself not to buy anymore. Remove it from the house. If you do regress try stopping again and again until your mind is strong enough. I play tricks on my mind by saying I am 4 weeks in -even though the first two weeks I caved in and the fourth week hasn’t finished - basically I have gone a week without sugar but you have to convince yourself and see yourself a month or more without it. You might want to substitute your evening joint with a Camomile tea it will relax you and help with anxiety and sleep. The trigger you have is getting ready for bed you need a new routine so this is why the tea works.
Also be clear why you want to stop and keep reminding yourself of that goal often or when you think about smoking. I have lost a lot of weight and exercise but I can’t get a flat stomach because of all the sugar and chocolate so I remind myself of how happy I will be when my stomach is flat. You need a reason or goal of why you are stopping otherwise it is too easy to give in.
I don’t but I know people that depend on it and then find it’s not enough and have ventured into further using of ‘harder’ drugs. To be honest I’ve got an addictive personality so I don’t touch even weed. Found out the hard way with cigarettes but don’t go near those anymore either. Coffee is my only addiction but will try and kick that so I can be addiction free lol I’m not perfect just sharing honest experiences
If you want to give it up, remember there are other ways to manage anxiety (I have bad anxiety but know drugs are not the right choice for me taking up other activities like yoga meditation or just other things in general are a better idea for me) so have a think about what you want to do and go with it!!
I used too. Many years ago (about 8years) I would smoke a stick a night ( bong) and it was bloody hard to give up I won't lie. For 2 weeks I struggled to sleep but I got there and you will too!!! Good luck.
Have you tried NA (narcotics anonymous)
I used to, before I had kids and hubby still does when kids are in bed. I will have an occasional glass of wine now and I don't see anything wrong with either be honest. I'm quite an anxious person and for me smoking weed really helped to the point I'm thinking of starting up again
Loses smoke weed and cigarettes
