Washington | 30 Year Old Female (Using Since Age 20)

I was tired of not feeling as motivated as I used to be prior to my heavy use of marijuana. I was tired of overeating and feeling like crap from overeating. I felt like I was living in a constant haze and was ready to experience life without the need or want to be high all the time. Overall, I was sick of relying on something to make situations “more fun” and life “more manageable”.

  • Habit: Gravity bongs and joints. – Every day, multiple times throughout the day.
  • Withdrawal Symptoms: Yes, lack of appetite and weight loss have already kicked in and it’s only been 2 days since I quit. Terrible sleep at night and waking up with headaches both days so far. Constant thought of smoking and cravings throughout the day. Slight irritability and anxiety.
  • Timing of Withdrawal: Day 2.
  • Withdrawal Tips: I got rid of/hid all my marijuana paraphernalia and made sure there wasn’t any marijuana in the house. My partner also quit with me so we are helping each other through these times. I’ve been keeping myself busy with old and new activities that make me feel good and take my mind off the cravings for at least a moment or two.

Nevada | 24 Year Old Male (Using Since Age 17)

Family vacation to Greece!

  • Habit: bong rips and vape pen. A joint if we’re celebrating something – Sometimes it was up to 7 times a day for a week of gaming with my friends. Usually down to once a night after I start working. Maybe 2-3 times a day on the days I have off of work.
  • Withdrawal Symptoms: Increase irritability most noticeablely after a week in a half in. I may have been more irratable in the first few days if I wasn’t so enamored by the destination. Also, like most people, being around a slightly quaralsome family may contribute to building irrattabilty 🤔 Appetite is also less, but hiking everyday and years of habitually eating too fast help me get the food down even if I dont particularly enjoy it.    Minor headaches some 3-4 days after I stopped smoking.    Minor nasea, although this could be from the jetlag/sleep schedule
  • Timing of Withdrawal: headaches: 2-3 days after I stopped smoking Appetite loss: 2-3 days after  Slight Nausea: 2-3 days after and persisted for about a week  Irratability: Didn’t notice it until a week and a half after I stopped smoking. Its pretty bad at this point and I can’t be as passively content as I used to be so I have to occupy myself with something engaging.
  • Withdrawal Tips: Getting outside, texting friends, listening to music, studying Greek language, reading, etc.

Weedless.org 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.
