Bored without Weed?

Many Cite Boredom as One of the Hardest Things to Combat

If you were a frequent user, a large portion of your day may have been spent smoking weed. This means that your days may feel somewhat empty, and many people cite boredom as one of the hardest things to combat during the early cessation period. You may efficiently work throughout the day without a problem, and then when your free time hits, you’re left with nothing to do.

Boredom, though, really stems from a lack of fulfillment. Maybe you already have hobbies you know you love, but it’s not uncommon to have a hard time coming up with ways to meaningfully fill your time. Being high may have obscured what was truly fulfilling to you. You can use this time now to find activities you really love. Variety is good, especially in the beginning. If you can find something from which can derive internal pleasure—whether it’s a solitary activity or spending time with friends—that will go a long way in keeping you away from weed.

Nobody stays recovered unless the life they have created is more rewarding and satisfying than the one they left behind.
