hell00000000 over fifty

Congratulations on your schooling. I am doing well. My cold is better so I am not coughing. I feel pretty good. Your story inspires me. Engineering is awesome. I am still smoking. Since I am not coughing I don't expect I will be quitting anytime soon. I am glad you are happy not smoking. In my state it's legal to smoke. There are stores that sell marijuana. Is it that way where you live?

Posted by: Bonnie5 January 25, 2017, 10:58 AM
Overfifty you never had problem with smoking plus its legal where you are and most important it helped you coming off methadone .. to me is helping to stay clean, not to use H ... i dont think about stopping at least not anytime soon. You cant let smoking stop you doing things in life like working, learning etc if you have problem smoking and function then smoking is not for you! Each of us need to do what is best for our wellbeing

Posted by: Overfifty January 28, 2017, 11:38 AM
You are exactly right Bonnie5. Marijuana has helped me so much. When I was sick I was coughing so much I wondered if I should quit. But it went away once I was better. I am glad that I am able to continue smoking. It's only been a little over two months since I quit the methadone and I believe I shouldn't rock the boat. I should just keep living my life as I have been.. My goal was never to quit smoking it was to quit methadone. Taking this one day at a time.........peace

Hello, I've been all over the web looking for people who quit weed and accounts of how it damaged their lives. I had a rough life since always, weed came when I was later than most when they start, I was almost 20 and back then, it felt like it was helping me. That was in 1997 and today, April 18th, the day it's my 40th birthday, I decided to quit marijuana. Things did not progress well in my life and many times I'd think it would be the same without weed or that I'd just pick another habit, such as drinking. But that's just the same for everyone I guess, we justifying and trying to make excuses for ourselves. I don't live in the US, but I did for 9 years. I was already a heavy smoker by 1999, when I left my country to go live in Jersey. During that time, my habit became a staple in my life, my days gravitated around weed. I came back to my country in 2008 and due to the terrible quality of the drug here, I decided to grow my own, which is a huge risk, since the laws tend to be very hard against growers here. That was in 2013 and after that, my life just took a dive to the worse. My professional life all but died, I've been jobless and living a life of pure mediocrity, living with only the rent of a home we have. A somewhat financially stable life kind put me in a too comfortable zone but now, I live with constant paranoia and my mental health is getting bad. I could type a book with all my life's problems, but I want to focus only on the weed. I managed to stay 1 month sober in 2015, but that was in a very turbulent moment of my life. Like I Said, weed is probably just one of the many thorns in my life, it didn't start that way and I used to think it helped more than it really did, but right now, it has become just a risk and a nuisance. I'm drowning in depression, anxiety, I have verbal fights with my wife that are just the most horrible things and another one of this episodes happened just yesterday. I'll bookmark this and check later, hope I can get some positive words and help from people who are in the same boat or have kicked this habit.

Posted by: rehan pakistani April 18, 2017, 4:42 AM
hello,,,sir Dingdangdone ,,,most welcome sir to contact me,,,,sir actually in the beginning we think that weed is helping our life,,,we feel happiness while using it,,,but in actual it is changing our mind towards every aspect of our lives,,,,and the danger zone becomes when we try to quit it,,,,depreesion,,,anxiety,,,dont be able to sleep,,thinking clearly,,,,and some other types of problems are faced by a person who starts to quit the weed,,,,,but dont worry,,,i want to assure u that these are just temporary conditions,,,,please be brave,,,and remain stable on your decision to quit this harmful habit.go to a doctor who treats depression n anxiety patients.and i am telling u that your health issues will automatically be solved with the passage of time.in that period of time you must try to show positive attitude,,dont become angry at your wife or any other person....weed produces many negative thoughts in our mind...but when we remain stable and show positive attitude for one year or more...our life settles gradually.....this is my 1st advice,,,you can tell me your conditions daily and can ask me guidness,,,,take care sir

today will mark 616 days without using marijuana,,,,,20 months ,, a long journey,,, a fight with my own self,,, i gained a lot of knowledge about many things i.e about my self,about life,about people,,,, i still feel some thing missing in my recovery but i have 98% recovered now,it was very tough time to beat addiction,i will never use any drug in my future,,,,i encouraged 3 people to avoid this drug,,i am happy to leave this bad habit.in the beginning it was depression who attacked severely but i kept my self moving on the journey,,,at that time i was unable to focus on my daily routine work,i always repent of using drug because at that time i thought that i will never recovered 100% ,but with the passage of time i felt my self like i was before using marijuana,so a little hope encouraged me to move on ,,,now 20 months has gone only 4 months remaining to complete the chapter of 2 years getting rid of marijuana,and i hope that after these 2 years i will recover 100%,my life will be back,i will get myself back.if anyone is in the starting period of leaving this drug and feels some depression or other symptoms,he/she can ask me to guide. thanks for your time to read my post.

Posted by: Overfifty September 3, 2017, 11:15 AM
Hello Rehan:) TODAY I am quitting marijuana after years of smoking. Your post has inspired me. I haven't been happy smoking for awhile and have been contemplating this for sometime. I have also developed breathing problems and a rattle cough. Should be a no brainer but it wasn't. That in itself showed me I needed to quit now. I love smoking weed but my health and well being are more important. I hope your doing we'll. Have you finished your studies? Have a great day............peace

Posted by: rehan pakistani September 4, 2017, 9:34 AM

Posted by: Overfifty September 5, 2017, 9:38 AM
Hi Rehan:) thank you for your support. I would read your posts and wondered if I too could quit. Your positive posts resonated with me. For months I thought about quitting. Everyday I cringed when I smoked. I just wasn't getting high anymore. It was stupid to keep smoking I thought to myself. So here I am today not smoking and feeling strong. So you have five more months of schooling left. That is awesome!! Your an inspiration to me. Thank you for sharing your journey because it made me start mine. Have a beautiful day....................peace

Hello Rehan, I hope you are still keeping strong. I wish you well and am praying for all of us people affected by this addiction. I am not religious so praying is fairly new to me. And I'm not a Bible thumper. All the same, prayer helps, for me anyway. Keep going on your path. My son is an addict, 31, clean 60 days today. You are younger, there is hope for you. Kind regards, Leila

Good afternoon rehan:) you are doing amazing!! Congratulations on all your time not smoking weed. How are your studies going? Have a wonderful day ๐Ÿ˜€.........peace

Posted by: Andy June 8, 2018, 7:51 PM
Hey guys! How are you doing :D? I've been smoking daily for almost 4 years.. (I'm 27 years old) every single day! It wasn't too bad for me because it affected me in a magical way.. It made me do things I would never think of! for example: one day I've decided to learn to use my weak hand for everything (writing, drawing and more, just like my right hand) and for straight 2 years I was practicing while stoned! every single day! and I even learnt to draw like an artist using my both hands (Seriously, no kidding! - I had zero experience in drawing). Today I'm 100% double handed(Ambidextrous) and I don't think I'd be able to achieve that without weed because it definitely altered my brain connections to even think about doing it...

BUT, recently I started to lose motivation for my new passion (Drawing and Illustrating), I began to feel some depression, anxiety and lack of energy (even after a good sleep). So I decided to quit and to see what happens! Today it's my second day without it.. It's pretty though but not as much as I thought it would be... maybe it's too soon? but I can tell you that I took an advice from a friend who had done it and he suggested me to take a widely known supplement called Ashwagandha KSM-66 before I go to sleep, he said it would help me with my withdrawal effects and it seem to work pretty great for me :) I had a great sleep for my first two days and I think I'll keep taking it for a month and see what happens. Overall, I don't think I'm in a bad situation and I don't see weed as much harmful as other drugs around us (including Alcohol and Tobacco).. but only when we abuse it (It's more a personal issue I guess). Any way, I have decided to quit and see if it helps to improve my symptoms. Don't wish me luck :D because I know I will make it.

Posted by: Ramington October 10, 2018, 10:56 AM
I would like to quit as well. How did you do that? Please let me know. Thanks!
