I want to breathe better as I have asthma and was waking up coughing due to smoking. I also feel that it's making my depression worse in some ways, as it just numbs my feelings and puts me in a brain fog, whereas before it used to help me feel happier and calmer and aid my anxiety. However one of the benefits of marijuana for me was helping my appetite, as I've been depressed and suffer from very low appetite for several months. But I'm hoping that my health wellness and mental clarity, including appetite, will improve after quitting. It's hard to differentiate what is a withdrawal symptom or just my general depression. I've been feeling very down and depressed, anxious, having trouble sleeping, shakiness, no appetite, cold, fatigued/low energy, and experiencing strange dreams.

I started smoking weed in a difficult time of my life. In the beginning i really benefited from it. I knew from the beginning that I didn’t want to become a daily user, but it happened. Somehow I managed to work through this difficulties and now there is no reason that could justify the use any longer. At least not for me. Few weeks ago I realized how much my coping mechanisms shifted to “just smoke some and forget it”. You can’t build happy a life around that. Also the lack of motivation to do anything else than smoke weed became really frustrating. So I decided to quit in order to grow back my real personality. Reasons to start smoking in the first place where: insomnia, anxiety, lack of appetite and some other. Now that I stopped smoking all these came back. On top of that: cravings, mood disturbances (I.e. I’m annoyed of everything as irrelevant it might be) , and I guess headaches (perhaps not caused by the withdrawal)Immediately after getting sober. EU2422MaleI smoked for roughly 2 years. Irregular in the beginning. Like three times a week for about five months. And every day at least once for about a year. Joints and bongs I'm 7 days in now.

Because it was loop: work mon-fri, then get hella high on friday evening, then find yourself on the Monday morning with very limited cognitive ability and heavy anxiety because of inability to work (my job requires intensive cognitive effort, it's IT-project management in a huge financial corp). So they main reason is that I got really tired of the anxiety and also afraid of my career perspectives. In fact I came to a frightening realization that if I have weed at home I'll use it no matter what day that is. I'll use if I have no work to do and I have absolutely no control over it. Anxiety/depression. Lots of negative thoughts including suicidal. Fear of staying in that state for long. A lot of fear for my job which I'm not doing for the whole week now. Struggling with finding energy to do simplest tasks. Heavy brain fog, I'm really stupid now and can't concentrate at all, can't make up a simplest plan for tomorrow (which is extremely unpleasant due to the fact that I have to do plans for my projects or get fired). Less hunger, less sex drive. Get angry really quick, results in yelling at computers when they take a little bit more time to think. A lot of negative thoughts on friend and relatives. Nightmares at night are also there but they look numbed comparing to what I had a few years earlier (this is not my first CWS).

Very popular device in Russia called 'Vodnick' or 'Vodniy'. Helps to gain tolerance fast. When outside I used joints. Melatonin for sleep disorder. 3mg used 1 hour before sleep.

Multiple reasons, I became burn out; started a health kick with cold pressed juices, smoothies, Whole Foods and exercise. Didn’t feel like consuming one day recently and felt like it was right for me to quit. I’ve been using daily multiple times a day since I was 15, with the occasional tolerance breaks. I’m now 26, and just noticed I’m tiered of being unmotivated. I was attempting to treat my mental illnesses with weed and came to the realization that it’s not a positive way to treat or deal with what I have going on. Got to the point where it was making mental state worse. Temperature control issues. Cold sweats and clammy hands and feet. Loss of appetite. Over all major mood swings. I do have bipolar 1, so I’m experiencing rapid cycling mood swings since quitting. Occasional Nausea Insomnia Feeling weird and unwell.

Cold sweats, night sweats, extreme mood swings, super bad anxiety.(to the point I’m convinced it’s not anxiety) had no appetite first week and lost 15 pounds. Got about 3 hours of sleep first 5 days. Suicidal thoughts. Terrible attention span. Nausea when I did force myself to eat. Super restless. Quick to anger and when I do get angry it’s more of a meltdown. Even less unmotivated than I was when I was smoking. Whenever I smell weed my mouth literally salivates. I start to get the cold sweats and anxiety about 12 hours after my last smoke. But all the other symptoms took 24 hours to set in and really got intense at 48 hours. Utah2317Male3-4 smokes a day. A typical session for me would be 3-4 bowls from a bong. 3-4 smokes a day.

I'm pretty young, and most of my family all smoke or rather vape, I never wanted to smoke, so I got into edibles from my 18th birthday on, almost instantly got addicted because nobody warned me about anything. Had some time on and off, ended up getting control back of my life, but of course things aren't that easy. Got back in about.. 4 months ago? Time feels so weird, maybe 5, could be 8 for all I know. I started feeling like shit over time, feeling it hit less, being high all the time, not knowing when edibles stop hitting because I take the next one before the old wears off, realizing that I barely spent any time not high. Time to stop, and to move out of this fucking house.Well it's been two days since I quit, my sleep is pretty distorted, whenever I close my eyes they snap back open, but I CAN sleep generally, it just takes forever. When I stop paying attention to my body and breath I start shaking, sometimes so much so that my teeth start hitting together and the sound is really annoying, so I try to focus on not doing it, but it doesn't reliably work. I'm crying a whole lot, granted I'm also about to be on my period so that probably does not help my mood whatsoever, but this is definitely unnatural levels of crying, even at this time of month. My heart feels faster thought I haven't measured or anything, anxiety is way up, mood is way down, just the usual I suppose. No vomiting or headaches though, so that's nice at least..Basically the second I decided to not take that extra edible and instead do something else, it's like my kid self is sitting inside me, irritated at my attempt to not avoid my problems anymore, constantly shouting at me for being a dumb fucking pushover failure with no sense of direction or perspective for the future, but it's not really offering any productive help unfortunately. Ehm.. anyway, the shaking and what not properly started really really soon after. It barely took any time at all.1918FemaleAgain it was on and off, but for the last.. 3? 5? 7? months (probably closer to 3 than 7, at least I hope so.. I really cannot remember most of this time period) It was basically every day, 1-3 edibles per day, each being about one third of a gram of weed.Edibles.Yes, well, yoga I suppose to get my mind off things, drawing frantically to get just any emotions onto paper so I don't accidentally let them out and shout at my mother, risking an argument that would only make the entire situation worse because in my current living situation I am at this woman's mercy no matter how much I fucking HATE it.9/3/202119

The main reason why I stopped is because I was heavily abusing marijuana for years (2016-2021) and used it as coping mechanism to avoid my personal struggles instead of facing them head on. Another reason also is I was smoking so much that I now suffer from a persistent pneumothorax problem (Collapsed lung). I also would regularly stay up to 24+ hours smoking marijuana and not sleeping or eating and in my lifetime of smoking I could comfortably say I've been through quite a substantial amount of psychosis episodes caused most likely by a lack of sleep and smoking a ridiculous amount of marijuana. I also smoked to the point where I would vomit but even after I did I would keep on smoking and smokingBefore I stopped I tried many times to lay off but I would always go back because I was afraid of the withdrawal I would get from weed. For me personally I would get angry and depressed with constant mood swings and felt like I couldn't feel normal again without it so I kept smoking to avoid these feelingsPretty much from day 1 till about 10 days for me roughly. I found the worst to be around the 3 to 7 day mark. Australia, Queensland2015MaleWhen I was 15 (2016) I would only smoke in moderation anywhere from about once a week to about twice a month and only needed a very small amount to get absolutely stoned out of my mind.

I would start with a small cone that could hold 0.10g then I started smoking bigger cones that would fit 0.50g to 1.0g and I packed it to the brim and smoke them in one go.

It was one of my main activities throughout the day and the effects I used it for like decreasing anxiety, helping with productivity, and making mundane tasks more enjoyable had stopped taking place so I was just intoxicated and less functional but without the positive associations.

I'm a healthy person and destroyed my life with smoking too much. It was my escape from emotional and depressing issues and I became addicted. It made me feel worse after a while. It led to paranoid thoughts, depressing thoughts got worse, weakness, speech problems, relationship problems, becoming friends with toxic people, extreme laziness, occasional panic attacks, eating problems, losing weight, reduced appetite, money problems, extreme procrastination, led to more cigarette smoking etc. It caused emotional, physical fatigue. I was losing my true self and it made me feel disgusted so I stopped it for good and nicotine addiction is also fading away. I will never touch weed again. My life is too important to be wasted.

Maybe one puff on vacation only, but even that doesn't excite me anymore.

Just know that I have to eventually for work, and now that I’ve been in a situation where I needed to stop smoking for a week I feel as though I should just keep it going. I love my weed, but I need to pass a drug test for work. As much as I love my weed, it definitely does affect my sleep negatively and my appetite negatively. I’m fully functioning and successful despite my use, however, I feel as though I could be more so without the weed. Nothing truly physical. I slept great the first night but was still exhausted the next day. I’m about to try sleeping the second night now without marijuana and I’ll see how that goes. No headaches or anxiety or anything of that sort. Just exhaustion and I struggle to eat. I may be starving but nothing sounds appealing. I have to force the food down and I feel full almost immediately but I know I need more fuel. So, I force myself to eat more to the point of being nauseous from a 600 calorie meal. It just feels like too much even though I need more food. ImmediatelyOhio2019MaleEvery day from 6 pm until sometimes only 9 or sometimes 12-1 am. BongNo because I haven’t really needed it. I used for about a year every day straight. Usually only from 6 pm on. The concern I have is that it will impact my sleep because I used it at first to help me sleep. I haven’t slept sober in a year before last night. 2021-08-08ohio20
Cannabis helped me with what I would consider as anxiety for many years, and still helps me think on a more creative and out going perspective. Unfortunately my body seems to have changed in some way, and now it seems to be the culprit to my anxiety. I am generally a heavy user smoking between 6 to 10 dabs a day. Was this way for 5 years or so, but now it seems to effect me physically. I'm not 100 percent sure if cannabis is the problem, or if I have any other under lying health conditions but whatever it is absolutely sucks lolMy first time quitting after 5 years was easing off in January and Feb. Quit all the way from March until mid June when my dog passed away. I didn't really experience any withdrawal symptoms this time around, other than difficulty sleeping for a few days. it was almost like my body wanted to quit anyway. The reason for quitting was intense feeling of heart palpitations or fluttering, increased heart rate and high blood pressure readings. Also over active and unnecessary thoughts. More or less, general symptoms of anxiety. Picked it back up when my dog passed because I needed to do something about the depression/ anxious thoughts. I was completely fine for a month or so. I didn't have any physical symptoms of anxiety, palpitations never came back. The first couple weeks were a little more intense in terms of over active thoughts but it felt like I was doing a good job of distracting myself. About 4 days ago, I was laying on my couch when all of a sudden my face felt a little tingly, then tight. It was hard to use the muscles in my face, my body started shivering and my neck started to spasm/convulse. Tried to lay down and take a deep breath and it felt like I was going to faint so I jumped up and paced around the room. My mind went to the worst place it could find. So I quit again. These passed few days now, I have maybe ate 2500 calories. I usually eat up to 3000 a day. My stomach doesn't signal for hunger, my mind can only focus on physical symptoms, or the possibility of being terminally ill. I can't tell if it's withdrawal at this point, anxiety, a mini stroke or all 3 lmao. I've also been experiencing some weakness in my arms/ body as well. I'm not sure if the initial anxiety attack that I had a few days ago was a symptom, being that it was around 6-7 hours from my last dab, or if I just have another underlying condition that decided to surface at that moment. Immediately the next day my appetite had nearly vanished, I still have intrusive thoughts mainly about what I'm physically feeling in that moment. Im slightly irritable. It feels like the anxiety continued to follow me around. I was craving a dab the first 2 days really bad but now I'm more concerned about my physical and mental health.Ohio2615MaleEveryday multiple times a dayDab rig or a bongOnly things that are supposed to help with anxiety. 2021-08-08ohio26

I smoked weed with tobacco and through my weed smoking ive developed an unfortunate tobacco addiction, which often makes me physically sick from withdrawals. Giving up weed and tobacco at the same time leaves me feeling physically ill, having night sweats, as well as all the weed withdrawal symptoms which makes quitting weed much harder, additionally i have a job which i cant really do if im going through withdrawals, mainly die to the lack of sleep. So i booked 6 days off in preparation for going through withdrawals. After the weed withdrawals have dissipated i intend to try and give up tobacco.2021-08-12australia25

I want to help my body become healthier (especially my lungs and my brain). I found that I used it to numb out the world because my anxiety and depression were so intense, and it would help me relax and sleep. But it made me overeat, even if I wasn't particularly hungry, and usually it was with foods that were higher in sugar and processed. I lacked motivation to do anything, and found myself sinking lower and lower.I stopped 9 days ago now and since then, I've been not able to fall asleep right away, and I've been dreaming again (a couple were very vivid/in color). Days 2 and 3 without smoking, I had dull headaches (could also be related to pms symptoms, but maybe not) and I also had a slight cough. My mood is ok overall, but I've had a few days of feeling pretty emotional (again, not sure if it's pms or quitting weed or a combination of both). Been feeling low-grade anxiety all week. Started by Day 2.Colorado3529FemaleDaily (every evening after work/before bed). Covid-19 increased my stress/anxiety/depression, and therefore, increased my use.Smoked rolled joints or out of a bowl.

I have ADHD and with it comes difficulty moderating anything that presses the dopamine button. I began smoking in my early thirties and am now 34. It quickly developed into smoking multiple times a day. I began to notice light difficulty breathing where none was before and in general while it felt good, it turned me into a bit of an unmotivated potato. For the sake of my health, relationship, job, and personal wellbeing, I decided to quit.Yes, absolutely. I've tried paring down my consumption before or when I ran out of marijuana. For me, every time including now, I experience extreme fatigue - it feels more physical than mental, but I also get sleepy earlier in the day.

stopped working on my thesisflickering / whistling , more from the brain than ear area, more on the left side. did go to the doctor, brain is fine, it s withdrawal. they say it might be hallucinations but at least for me it s a very clear sound, it s a sinusoidal tone, one frequency, doesnt really vary (doesnt get louder or softer). also i noticed that the more i focus on the "outside" sound the less i notice it, and the less the "outside" sound disappears / fades away, the more i notice this inside sound, indicating (at least for me) that this is essentially the brain "hearing" itself or me noticing the brain do the stuff it does. i dont have interference with hearing really. obviously, the more i pay attention to it, the more annoying it gets. the sound can be compared to when you mute a tube TV and it still does this flickering "sound". it's not haptic though. it s not vibrating or anything. it's just "snow", background noise, like the cosmic microwave background, it's omnipresent, it s not quite responsive, it doesnt evolve or respond really. essentially, what varies is the degree with which i m annoyed by it, i.e. my attention to it. when there s sound around me i hardly even mind. when there is sound and i pay attention to it, i will still hear it. it s particularly annoying when everything is silent, but luckily when falling asleep i ll get bored by it quickly and just drift away. in the morning it s obnoxiously loud, i wonder what that is all about, i guess brain activity is heightened through the night, but what do i know. i just hope my brain will readjust, i ve had on and off smoking phases for years and never experienced anything like it. but i smoked heavily and strong stuff (big haze joints), for 6 months without a break (only 1 at night though, never more, and never during the day). it really feels like i habituated my brain to something that it s not lacking. i just hope my brain will re adjust and get used to what it was like before. from what i ve read on your website, there is a good chance that that will happen. it s been 2 weeks now. the sounds have started on the first day after not having smoked the night before (i.e. first day after non-stoned sleep). there is no development yet, but i m coming from war ( i wrote an intensive thesis, i worked all day, ate and drank too little, and then smoked in the evening to turn it all off). i m allowing my body to take its time. first morning after not having smoked the day before.

Family vacation to Greece!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.

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”.

To save my mental health. And to also calm my paranoia and laziness I have been sober for about 5 days now. I was a daily concentrate smoker who smoked Atleast a gram a day.

Wanted to get my sh*t together to put it bluntly - I turned 25 and needed to make a break through. Needed to make a change and this was a step forward. I originally stopped smoking to possibly pass a drug screen for a job. I wasn’t successful and found out on the 3rd day of being “sober” I thought, it’s been three days.. why not 30? It has now been over a month and a half and mentally I feel myself again and I’m not cursing myself or getting emotional over my progress in life. - it’s life. Mentally had a big thing, I was turned off by the amount of mess I would make or just the overall social perspective and put my foot down and made the change!I think I mentally prepared myself to quit and the withdrawals were actually very minimal.

I've used it daily for 20 years - I'm 38. There's no particular reason why I now feel compelled to stop, however this is the first time I've ever made the decision freely and willingly (for example, not doing it because of a vacation). Part of it is because I live in Australia and I have to spend a lot to get quality product, which sometimes disappoints and feels like a total waste of money, in turn depressing me and sometimes even triggering withdrawl symptoms. I lived in Los Angeles until 2011 and really need high THC cannabis to sustain my addiction. Despite starting at 18 and floundering for many years, I eventually made something of myself and have a very successful career. I do wonder what I would have become had I never tried cannabis, though.Yes - insomnia, nightmares, extreme irritability, cravings, occasional headaches and a lower pain tolerance. After 20 years, any reduced amount of THC triggers withdrawl symptoms in mere hours. This was no exception.Australia3818Male5-10 times every day.I used to only use bongs. For the last few years I've used vapes (Dynavap mainly) with flower. Never used carts or concentrates outside of a few times.Yes - CBD tincture (completely THC free) has become available in Australia and I received a prescription after reading a lot of anecdotes from others in similar situations (heavy, long term users) who say it helped them finally quit. I'm using it with the awareness it may make no difference, but at least it's given me some hope that it might. After several nights with the worst insomnia I've ever experienced and terrible nightmares I am also using a an OTC sleep aid sparingly (Doxylamine). 6/20/2021australia38

It's making me lazy and tired. I have lost motivation and stopped enjoying the little things. Confidence was a big part of taking the decision to stop since I was highly entousiastic and positive personality. My reltionship was week with everyone almost because of my mood swings everyday. I couldn't function properly without THC in my body. Low job performance. Also one of the main things was anxiety, everything could trigger my anxiety, thus feeling scared and depressed. Yes almost everything mentioned in the weedless guideline was literlay happening to me. Loss of motive, feeling bored, irritable, loss of sexual drive, loss of appetite, sleeping problems, sweats at night and even during the day...etcFirst week was a bit of hell to me, I was extremely lost and scared. It is not my first withdrawal, Its the 4th time I quit and whenever I reach day 30 to 40 I started feeling myself again. It is always the first 4 weeks where I couldn't wait to pass them because of the withdrawal symptoms. after almost a month and a half, I feel energetic and strong to battle my mind, from tiredness and lack of motivation.Lebanon2720MaleEveryday, not more than 4 joints per day. In average I was consuming 2 joints per day. There is always a joint, 1 to 2 hours before bed. At the beginning of using Marijuana half a joint was enough but after a period of 2 months I started gradually consuming more. Rolling weed with a bit of tobacco, and if I'm consuming hash I would put half tobacco and half hash in a joint. I tried meditation it was great, but it depends on my mood. sometimes I'm too angry or tired to even try to meditate and this leads to depression where I find myself unable to solve my problems although I know the solution. Exercising is the best way to calm my symptoms but it always come back after a while from finishing my workout. Walking in nature is also great technique to make me forget or accept psychological pain. Alcohol was also an escape for me obviously, but sometimes worsen the symptoms the second day. 6/20/2021lebanon27

Found out I was pregnant.I can't tell whether they are symptoms of pregnancy or withdrawal. Significant brain fog, periods of seeming dissociation, extreme tiredness, general fatigue, short term memory is awful - I can't remember what I did yesterday. I found out I was pregnant and I had last smoked a day before that. After a day I don't get any withdrawal apart from a desire to smoke. The next few days though I began to feel exhausted, which is a symptom of early pregnancy so was likely unrelated. While I was smoking weed I had no memory and awful brain fog and I have been sober for exactly 14 days and I still have terrible memory and brain fog, as well as a consistent urge to smoke - however I have many friends that smoke so this likely has an impact as I see them doing it and feel jealous.
