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. My withdrawal symptoms quite honestly were scary. I was in constant panic. I had a wave of panic attacks. I couldn’t sleep and I also started to feel a lot of pain in my chest and body in all. I tried to find any story’s that matched mine. However none matched the amount I used. It was pretty upsetting and even pushed me to go to a doctor. The doctor just assured me I wasn’t dieing and it seemed to calm my anexity dramaticly. (Basic check up). I wish I had the courage to put more of my story out there beacuse I know there are other chronic concentrate smokers out there.

Worst in first 2 weeks, got better, then returned about a month in.Australia2523MaleAll day everyday following traumatic event, then less during the day and more at night, then during the final six months-a year just at night, naturally reducing my dose to as little as .33 of a vape (capable of holding .15mg, the vape is an Arizer Solo 2) twice in the evening. Reduced because weed was triggering my anxiety. Started doing that when I switched strains with my doctor (I thought It might be a good idea to have a strain change. From (I won’t give the fancy Australian medical names, rather the actual strain name) more potent medical version of Kosher Kush (which worked great, Canadian) to OG Kush (Australian), then when it was triggering some anxiety to Black Label Kush (Israeli), which still triggered anxiety. This caused me to think about if I actually wanted to use marijuana anymore, and I didn’t. Think the anxiety was my body telling me to stop. Vape, THC oilI resumed cbd at my doctor’s advice after initially using nothing. It helps a fair but tbh, it’s also way stronger since I quit THC. I used to use 80mg of cbd where now I use 40mg, and it’s way stronger even at that dose! I exercise 3 times a week and try to stay distracted from the feelings using video games, books.

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. Nearly none, I was expecting severe withdrawals after 11 years of hard on use Had mild sweats first week maybe 5th day Australia2514MaleI was smoking between 2-6grams a day. 3 times or more a day 7 days a weekMainly bowl/bong Sometimes a joint And only once using a vape pen Edible half a dozen timesI started on Mirtazapine 6 weeks prior and noticed it did not make a difference when I was smoking and dare say this aided me to coping 2021-06-29australia25

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.

Are you a regular marijuana user that has recently stopped using?

Currently, little data exists on heavy marijuana use and withdrawal. Weedless.org is collaborating with researchers to explore this topic and others. We have created a short, completely anonymous questionnaire which we will use to focus our future research efforts. You may skip any questions that make you feel uncomfortable and you are free to withdraw at any time. At the end of the survey, you will be given the option to anonymously share your responses with the Weedless.org community.
