What to Expect One Month After Quitting Weed

About this Guide

The Weedless Guide surveys scientific research and first-hand accounts to provide a general timeline of typical withdrawal symptoms. Your experience with abstinence is influenced by how much and how long you’ve used as well as a host of biological and psychosocial factors that make your experience wholly unique. So, use this as a general outline to mentally prepare yourself, but don’t be alarmed if your experience is different.

Positive Benefits: What’s Important to You

It’s almost the end of the moth. You’ve overcome a lot, and in the process, learned more about yourself and your loved ones. After going through a major change like this, it can be helpful to reflect on what values are important to you. What do you want to take with you beyond this month? What do you want to leave behind? What other changes do you want to make in your life? This is a starting point for making your life exactly the way you want it to be.

“Sometimes we motivate ourselves by thinking of what we want to become. Sometimes we motivate ourselves by thinking about who we don’t ever want to be again.” – Shane Niemeyer

Day 30

Congratulations and Reflection

Congratulations are in order! You have made it to the end of the month. You should feel so incredibly proud. This experience should serve as an indicator that you can do anything you put your mind. You were able to overcome both physical and emotional pain, and the skills you’ve learned and earned in the process—perseverance, flexibility, stress management—can be applied to reach any goal you have. Celebrate today. Life is good. You did it.

“It always seems impossible until it’s done” – Nelson Mandela
