QUESTION: I have gotten really addicted to weed, so much so I do it alone more than i do it with freinds. I actually love getting high alone. Point is i know i am addicted and I want to stop being addicted but still be able to enjoy getting high time to time. I dont want to see any therapist either, I just want to know if anyone else faces this?

  1. Have you ever checked r/leaves? Yeah, I know it's Reddit, but that subreddit has helped some folks.

  2. Yeah, I was mentally dependent on marijuana, then I ran out and didnt buy any. Now I am fine. Just stop buying marijuana.

  3. 2 has it right. Just stop doing it. We're not talking crack here. Source: recreational smoker who also enjoys getting high alone.

  4. I don't personally smoke, and never have, but my friends who have quit just stopped buying. If they had any they would smoke it, so the easiest way to not smoke was just to not have any around.

    By quit I mean they stopped doing it every few hours, and will still take a marijuana socially every once in a while

  5. I'm in the same boat as you at the moment. It gets to a certain point where I would rather just get high eat food and play games over any school or social related thing. My grades have gone way down and at this very moment I might not be able to return to Waterloo. It was fine when it was an end of the day thing, but I started doing it mid afternoon/evening and my production level drops significantly.

  6. So, basically you're saying that you don't want to do anything. Got'cha.

  7. I've been through this before, and I've ended it too.

    Been a daily smoker for about a year and my grades and social life plummeted. I decided it was time to stop this bullshit. I threw away everything that was weed related, deleted dealer numbers, stopped hanging out with pothead friends (for the first few weeks).

    I took a break term to travel around and that got me away from smoking up (because I wouldn't be able to find dealers in a new place, and I was preoccupied doing cool shit).

    I also frequently visit /r/leaves, I recommend it.

  8. OP here: I don't know if this was the right thing but, I had 1 joint left so I smoked it but now as suggested gonna stop buying more. Good to see some other people coping with it!

  10. You'll eventually get tired of it. It's just a phase.

  11. I've quit for extended periods of time before (drug test related) and I always found that the first three or four days are the hardest and that after that it's pretty much clear sailing. Like everyone else has said, get rid of any weed or paraphernalia you have lying around, then maybe get some good books, video games, movies, to distract yourself if you get a bit of a craving. Exercise of any sort also helps with any insomnia you might experience which I've always found to really be the hardest part of quitting, not to mention the obvious benefits of fitness. Maybe you can even try something new and use that to fill time you would have spent getting stoned. I also like to cross off days on the calendar on which I didn't smoke. It's just nice to have something tangible that shows you how far you've come. And always actively and consciously make the decision not to smoke and remind yourself why you're quitting.
