Introducing the Weedless Forum

By July 12, 2023One Comment

We are thrilled to announce the launch of a community that seeks to empower and support individuals who are on the journey to quit weed or take a break. Allow us to introduce The Weedless Forum, a safe and inclusive space dedicated to your well-being and growth.

While our Facebook Private Support Group has been immensely helpful and successful in fostering connections and support, we understand that some individuals may prefer a platform outside of social media. In response to these requests, we have launched The Weedless Forum as a dedicated web space exclusively for our community members. We are committed to creating an environment that respects your need for discretion while still providing the same unwavering support and guidance.

As we embark on this exciting new venture, it’s important to acknowledge that The Weedless Forum is in its early stages. Your involvement and support are crucial in shaping this forum into a thriving hub of connection, encouragement, and inspiration. We welcome your ideas, suggestions, and active participation as we work together to build a space that truly meets the needs of our members.

By joining us early on this journey, you have the opportunity to make a lasting impact and be a driving force behind the success of The Weedless Forum. Together, let’s create a space that empowers individuals and cultivates a sense of unity and purpose.

About is a free, web-based resource and community created by a team of healthcare professionals and researchers. We distill the facts about marijuana use and its effects into practical guidance for interested persons or for those who are thinking about or struggling to quit weed. Finding reliable, easy to understand information about marijuana should never be a struggle—that is why our core mission is to provide the most up to date information about marijuana use, abuse, addiction, and withdrawal. While we seek to empower individuals to have control over their use, we are not “anti-weed” and we support efforts to legalize adult marijuana use and study.

    I started smoking cannabis when I was 12 years old in 1967. I’m going to be 70 this year and smoked pretty consistently for the last 58 years. I understood that most of my usage was to cover depression or have a common “interest” with friends and social acquaintances, but I still smoked alone stating the moment I woke up. I’m married for over 20 years, worked many interesting jobs, had my own business, and own three homes, so I’m not a burnout or unsuccessful. I’ve raced cars on an amateur basis since I was 17 and still do. My reflexes are extraordinary for a septuagenarian and I’m told I look much younger than my years. I would never dream. Sleep was like a black hole with nothing to recall when I woke. Also, I would wake multiple times at night to use the restroom and, even during the day, could barely go a couple hours without having to urinate. I stopped smoking cold turkey about a week ago. I don’t have an addictive personality so that part was relatively easy. The withdrawals started almost immediately with the most pronounced being a constant feeling of anxiousness and a sore stomach. I don’t like to fail at anything, so I refused to ween myself or quit over a period of time, and just sat with the uncomfortableness. Surpringky, I started to dream again. Not just dream, but spectacular, full color, adventures that were filled with incredible sights and people. Another miracle was I could sleep through the night without having to wake up and run to the bathroom. My head is so much clearer and I’m able to control my emotional responses with much more maturity a thought. I have an increased desire to be kind and I see the world as a much more hopeful place. I never had a problem paying for the best weed you could buy, but never really liked spending the money on it so I’m thrilled to have that expense out of my life. I used cannabis to self-medicate and thought it better than most therapists I experienced. Truth be told I was really lying to myself to avoid the deeper issues I was working to suppress. Now that I’m clean, I understand what a disservice I was doing to myself and the time and money wasted to keep the lie going. I understand quite intimately how difficult remove cannabis from your life can be, but I truly recommend that anyone using it to manage their existence, remove it from your life and get a new perspective on who you are and what you can offer to yourself and the rest of the world. You’ll be surprised how much of life you’re missing and all the other “highs” that are available when your not focused so much in yourself.
