Have to stop using weed
    #680916 - 08/09/13 08:39 AM (3 years, 3 months ago)

Unfortunately it's true guys; I've been to see my doctor today about my head rushes and heart problems and I admitted to her that I smoke weed mainly because it helps my social anxiety although I suspect she already knew because she was asking me about how I deal with the anxiety with probing suspicion.
She was super cool though and an awesome down to earth doctor. She told me that weed isn't good for the brain and that it will only make my problems worse, which is true as lately every time I smoke now I feel my heart tighten up and ache and one time it got so bad I thought I might die there and then of a heart attack.

So that's me done with weed :sad: I would continue to vape for the rest of my life if I could but I've been forced to split up the relationship with Mary Jane. I will say though that weed has changed my life for the better with countless good experiences.

Anyone else had to force themselves to stop?  :frown:

Sorry to hear, that is extremely sad :frown: I think your doctor might just be feeding the propaganda machine and that doesn't help the anxiety while high but who the fuck am I? Good luck and I hope you and Mary Jane can meet up later in life.

Yeah I hope so too, it might not even be the weed that caused the issues, I was using a lighter aided vape and consequently inhaling a lot of nasty butane. I dunno though, I'm not very clued up with this sort of thing.

If you feel that it's for the best you quit then that's fine. I wouldn't however make a decision solely based upon what a doctor says. They claim they know what's up but many of them are quacks. There really isn't that much research done on the brain and cannabis to wholly support any assertion.

I had to quit.  Even deep sleepy indicas would put me in state of panic.  I can't explain it other than I am typically have a bit of anxiety anyways.  It just isn't a good fit for me today.  I will still have an edible on occasion, but I typically mix it with a heavy pain killer.  Opiates are a much better fit now, but I don't have access to the kind I like the most and I won't fuck with H.

Not every medicine is right for every person (just like not all people would benefit from a mushroom trip or aspirin makes some people deadly ill).  I had plenty of enjoyment for years and I won't put down my good experiences just because cannabis isn't right for me today.  I am hoping I can try again in the future, maybe when my kids are grown and things have changed within me to re-experience some of the fun of casual use.


--------------------
I am not a cannabis grower.  I find the cannabis growers to be the most open to experimenting and sharing out of all of the different botany groups I enjoy.  I frequently use the suggestions that I find to apply to own organic gardening and food production.

If weed makes you have anxiety attacks it's because you have some deeper problems that need to be addressed. Cannabis shows you the real you, whether you like it or not.

I get a little anxiety myself. I find that smoking more, and smoking more often kills it. Its teetering on the edge of tolerance that is a bad spot to be in IMO. I just smoke and smoke and smoke and its gone.

I dunno if that'd work for most people though lol.

Haha I guess that's one way to do it.

I'm not saying people shouldn't stop smoking weed or anything, if that's what they gotta do then by all means do it. I'm just saying it won't solve the real problem, it's more like just sweeping it under the rug.

Only quit for a few months for job hunting. But i binged on benzo's during that time which was kinda dumb, lol.

Best of luck to you on this endeavor. Maybe some day you'll pick up the pipe again and have no problems. It could happen. :smile:

i agree with PO. had some serious issues with depression and anxiety last year, was on the verge of offing myself. couldn't eat or sleep, shit got bad.  so i finally went to see a doctor. turns out i had high blood pressure and was pre-diabetic, which only served to exacerbate the depression and anxiety. doc put me on blood pressure medicine and SSRI for anxiety and depression. i also quit smoking (cigs) and got a vape, started eating healthy, drinking plenty of water, and exercising (even if it's just going for a walk). ten months later my blood sugar and blood pressure are in check. still take my SSRI and probably always will. i feel good and don't ever want to go back there.  guess the moral of my story is take care of your body and in return it'll take care of you.

Hey guys.  It's been awhile since I've logged in.  I have to quit smoking weed here too.  I'm out of money and I need to shape up before next semester starts.  Can't lose my GPA.  Being 27, this is my only chance, and I've been a stoner the past two semesters, I'm LUCKY to have kept my 4.0gpa.

Fazed, I think your brain will be fine either way with marijuana, it doesn't make you dumber, but it can fuck with your ability to multitask and also your short-term memory.  I've been a heavy smoker since I was 19, so nearly 9 years now.  I quit for maybe a total of 5 months. 

Well we all have to quit sometime, so I'll quit with you.  I'm cleaning all my glass, not gonna smoke with people, going to try to distance myself from them and hang out with people who don't smoke.  I love my friends, but I know until I'm over that shit (maybe two weeks, seriously, it's not a long time to get over it), I'll keep wanting to smoke it.  And if that's the case I'm never gonna quit.



Sorry OP,  dunno why I rambled on so stupidly.
