Anxiety
    #481904 - 09/25/10 12:16 AM (6 years, 2 months ago)

does anyone else here suffer from anxiety?
if so how severe is it? and How does Marijuana effect it?

i have slight anxiety pretty often, not much to it, just makes my chest uncomfertable. but my social anxiety can make my heart beat pretty fucking fast.
i can be pretty calm, and take a couple hits of bud, and have the worst anxiety of my life. i am literally scared to smoke weed again. (im pretty sure its anxiety)

I use to have this problem when I was like 16, when my parents dident know I smoked weed. I would go out to my car and smoke at night, and my dad would like come outside with the dog and I would get massive panic attacks. I would even get panic attacks smoking with friends, just thinking about what my parents would do would give me a panic attack. Once I graduated and my dad was like just graduated then do whatever you want. I lost all that anxiety from smoking weed, and it actually became a treatment for what anxiety I still did have from life.

I think you have some deeper seeded anxiety, Marijuana often helps anxiety. But you may be one of the people where it just causes anxiety and paranoia.  If its a big enough problem, getting a scrip for some benzos is not hard. you could tell them your story and they would try some bullshit drug first, then you go back say it doesent work and get Benzos. 

Oh btw, I havent been drunk in 4 years and im wasted.

I suffer from social anxiety pretty bad. I have been working pretty hard to free myself from it. Meditation works, and has taught me in social situations to focus myself, relax, and breathe. Before I would actually stop breathing in a conversation.

The funny thing is, I have always been a pretty social person and can get along with anyone, so I never really could understand it. It was like this anxiety had a mind of its own and just took over.

I find MJ can either help or hinder, I think it depends on the strain.
Anyway good luck with your anxiety, you can beat that shit! :sun:

It helps. Also just making a conscious effort to be a more relaxed person and take things as they come, and dealing with things in your life that need addressing and are adding to your stress. And of course, it may be difficult but the more exposure you have to social situations the more comfortable you will get.

Oh, and this is an exercise that has really helped me.
Whenever you are doing nothing for a moment, sit down and take deep breathes really focusing on the feeling, keep your head totally clear and as a thought begins to enter you mind stop it, at the end of each breathe count up. Stop counting when you let a thought enter your mind. See how far you can get (basically a meditation but with a set goal in mind).
Its hard at first but really teaches you to focus and keep your mind clear and free of that annoying chatter that adds to your anxiety.

This is how marijuana effects my anxiety, if I have not smoked in a while, it makes it worse, once I am smoking everyday for about a week and a half, it makes it better.

Xanax for anxiety, it's the best for it imo. Xanax completely kills my anxiety.

i am a relaxed person in general, well until recently. I never even had anxiety until i had an anxiety attack from smoking weed once, then almost every time since then when i smoke i get anxiety. Ive been trying to just relax and breath.

does anyone know some strains that can help, or that can cause anxiety?
im pretty sure ive smoked a sativa dom. that helped, but also a indica that helped. so i dont think it has anything to do with that.

I think it is more of a tolerance thing.

For me I just have to take like a week of smoking everyday before the anxiety gets better instead of it making it worse. I'm a little iffy on just taking a couple hits, it will probably have the same effect but of a lesser effect, taking a few hits each time though should make it better since you will be building tolerance.

The whole high pretty much. I only get bad anxiety on it if I have no tolerance at all, and am just starting again.

I also always have xanax so I can take one of those to help it if it starts, which I don't think I ever really do.
