I need to STOP SMOKING MARIHUANA right now.
It’s interfefing with my dreams. But I’m addicted, and I wanna cut it now.
ANY SUGGESTION? spiritual, logical, some tips, whatever kind of advice you can share would be accepted.
“Hell is the false assumption that you are not currently in Heaven.”
Stop mixing tobacco with marijuana if you do. That creates most of the addiction.
Next, get rid of the weed you have. Smoke it, sell it, doesn’t matter.
(If you’re using a bong: Then drain your bong and disassemble it. After this put the different pieces in different places. This is really important, since it makes the effort to smoke a lot bigger.)
Put your smoking equipment out of sight.
Brave through the first week or so, and you’re in the clear. That doesn’t mean you can smoke, obviously, but you’ll think of it less and less from that point on.
If you start craving, go for a walk (the longer the better), perhaps to a store, and buy a fresh fruit – or play video games. Anything active.
Take up a hobby that helps you grow. Yoga and snowboarding works for me. Spiritually? For me, it was reading “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle. Usually don’t read self-helpy but this is far from it and so simple but powerful it will change your life.
Well I’m quitting too. It’s making me shot out. I am also starting school soon so I need to be focused. I say stay away from it as much as possible and do your own thing. Smoking weed happens only when your somewhere where everybody there smokes, don’t be around those places or people.
see a doctor?
I had a problem with quitting a while ago, mainly because I was going to be tested. I still smoke frequently but I do know a few techniques that have helped me in the past. The first thing I would recommend is reading.
People tend to turn to smoke when they are bored. If your mind isn’t occupied then it will eventually start saying “Hey you know what would be awesome? A fat joint!”. If you find a good book to read you can keep your mind off of it whenever you get a craving by immersing yourself in the literary world.
Another suggestion would be to distance yourself from it. Make it unavailable if possible. When you run out don’t re-up and if you have stoner friends try keeping away from them until you have gone at least a week without it.
Hope this helps!
I smoked regularly for a long time. After a while I started to recognize that I was getting high every single day to avoid dealing with certain things in my life, and I was only making things more difficult for myself by how dependent I was on it. I flat out quit, after quite a few unsuccessful attempts.
I spent a lot of time biking. When I’d start to feel shitty and think about how much I wanted a hit, I’d hop on my bike and bike through some of the wooded bike paths around town and listen to music. That was probably my best therapy, other than focusing more on my hobbies, learning new things, and hanging out with my friends who didn’t smoke or were cool with not having to smoke when we were together. For some reason, establishing a morning routine and waking up early helped, too. Must have to do with staying focused and keeping busy.
Books are awesome, too.
My intention was never to quit altogether, but I did for months and months, and now it’s nice to smoke marijuana and actually enjoy it (minus the intensity of smoking the for the first couple of times again after losing my tolerance, heh.)
