My Weed Withdrawal Symptoms 30 Days After Quitting [Video]

I’m 40 days sober after a 16 year near-daily weed habit. In this video, I discuss the later stages of weed withdrawal, including common symptoms experienced a month after quitting. For me, this includes loss of productivity and symptoms of depression. I’m just a regular guy, not an expert. Always consult with a qualified professional about your health and well being.

    Thank you for your honesty. I started when I was living in a bad apartment as a way to forget the daily fear. Other terrible things happened around that time that spiraled my anxiety out of control. I lost my honours project and was derailed from my path in life.

    14 years later, after losing my life partner and family/friend ties, the loneliness and emptiness of just being high all the time is too much.

    But it also feels like quitting cold-turkey is too much. I fear cannabis’ negative health potential such as stroke and cerebral vasospasm, as I have been victim to four concussions. This is what is driving me forward to try and quit. I was an honours student at the top university in my country before weed. Then I became an overweight couch potato over the years.

    If I could go back and turn down that first hit offered to me, I would do it.

    Glad to hear your story.

    Some of my favourite hobbies are walking/hiking and recording species as I go; knitting; learning languages; cooking and baking; creating music, and gardening. But all of these things are next to impossible when high outside of work. My career and financial status has suffered horrendously too.

    I am only on day 3 this time, but a couple of years ago I went nearly 40 days without.

    I was feeling sharper and more balanced even just after thirty days.

    When I see people getting high now, I just feel bad for them as they are locked in the cage of addiction.

    I know I want to be a force of positive change for my community and the ecological environment, and I hope to have the strength someday to do this.

    I am 33 and started when I was 19.

    Your video and also the comment from Bradley are inspiring me to quit again. I feel as if I’ve been giving up in life recently and being high all the time is becoming very empty.

    Thank you for making this video. I’m on day 2 and the urges are insane. Talking on the phone, i should grab the vape pen. Sitting on the couch, grab the pen. Walk by the bathroom, why not smoke a little. It’s reassuring to know that i’m on the right track. Also, your comment about how we think it’s going to magically change our productivity-yeah, i’m guilty of that as well. Thank you for the suggestions on new activities and getting that part of my life up an moving again

    Thanks for sharing. I’m on my first but hopefully last attempt at quitting. It’s been one week. Having night sweats, vivid dreams and nightmares, and flu symptoms. I do notice that the days are so much longer. I’m finally reading more, as now I can remember what I’ve read! Anxious but trying to take one day or even hour at a time.
