I quit weed today after years of smoking. The thing is I love love love smoking weed. But unfortunately I am developing breathing problems and have a horrible rattle cough. I also have gotten to the point where it's just not helping me anymore. I don't know really what's going on with me I just know I need to quit. I have been wanting this for awhile but never had the guts to just quit. Today I posted my thoughts and have begun my journey to a smoke free life. I usually wake and bake but today I haven't and I am okay. I also have been going down in THC so my body can adjust .I haven't tapered though......I am cold turkey on this one. Gobble gobble lol. I feel like I have a purpose today. I am working towards better health. I probably will be posting several times a day for awhile. I just never thought I would be doing this. Taking it one minute at a time.................peace

Well it's been about 15 hours since I smoked and I have no symptoms of withdrawal. I am very grateful for this. I was a heavy smoker for years with some breaks of abstinence in between. I did lower my THC for awhile before this so maybe it's helping me now. Taking this minute by minute. Going to fix something to eat now. Feeling strong and motivated..........peace

Day 2:) I didn't smoke yesterday and I was fine:) after years or rather decades of smoking I didn't have withdrawals on day 1. The transition to not smoking weed has been mentally challenging. But physically my body was ready to quit. So this morning I am enjoying a cup of coffee and watching the news. Proud my journey has started......peace

Thank you Rehan for your kind words:) I am being gentle with myself today. I just told my family and they are supportive. Now it seems more real somehow. I am doing well today. No discomfort or anxiety and I can eat. I am grateful for today................peace

Day3:) I made it another day:) I am so proud of myself for quitting. I haven't experienced any withdrawals so to speak of. I am not a sleeper and 5-6 hours is what I average. Maybe I got a little less sleep last night but feel fine this morning. I already feel more alert and motivated in just 2 days. I am not depressed either. I didn't have to quit. I am not on probation nor does my family insist I quit. I did this for ME!!! I also want to start walking daily. The air quality is hazardous because of wildfires so can't walk this morning. Getting healthier is what I want. So I am taking things one day at a time...........................peace

Good for You! How are you feeling today? When I quit weed I suffered some sleep problems, but my biggest symptom was agitation. So happy for you. You will be amazed how much more productive you will be after just a few months. Do you attend 12 step meetings?
They help me very much.

Day 9 of not smoking weed:) Thank you Rehan for your support. I have been sweaty, agitated and not sleeping. Johny1arm you are right agitation is a problem for me. I have been hanging in there just kind of feel snappy and crappy. I use to attend meetings I don't anymore. I am kinda blah tonight. I guess I want a get outta jail free card lol But I am doing this and I'm proud of myself. Have a nice evening:)............
