Weed Withdrawal -- Anyone Else? 2013-02-27 00:51:03 Reply

Hi guys, I guess this isn't the right forum in general to be on about drugs, but I'm sure plenty of us are on drugs anyway. I've been here the longest so I usually come to this forum when I'm hoping for support.

I'm currently a weed smoker, regularly. About three times a day. Today I'm out, and withdrawal is setting in. I feel irritable and in a pit of depression and qq. I'm a prick to everyone when I'm like this; it's like when people quit cigarettes. I know it's not "physically addictive", but damn do I feel awful.

Hold me, NG?

be careful with cannabis . . . it's extremely addictive and damaging to your physical and mental health. i recommend you talk to a general practitioner or rehabilitation centre if you need help to kick your addiction

I know how you feel. I have to get a job so I quit smoking. I've been a little more down than usual lately; i'm assuming due to lack of some chemical that my brain hasn't been making because the chemicals in marijuana have been taking their place. Or something, idk. It's definitely not physically addicting, I can quit smoking no problem. It's just really the only thing that makes me happy.

I've been mostly under my stump. Lol. I think I'm going to be active on this site again, the mix of personalities and interests is really nice.

I don't so much plan on quitting forever, but as was mentioned, I think it's more of a need to slow down and smell the roses. It's not physically addictive, but the positive, lovely feelings can be addictive. (Like you said with gambling.)

And damn it if I can't get motivated when I'm sober. I'm a very productive stoner; I work hard, I have a spotless everything. When I'm out, even my girlfriend starts to bust my ass about how much of a mope I can be.

There's definitely a withdrawal from weed when you stop abruptly from a high amount of use. Personally I was smoking around two to six grams a day, depending on the week and how my crop went. That isn't to say I wouldn't recommend it to someone, I still enjoy a lot.

Weed does decrease performance, though. I go next door and play pool frequently. Usually i'll smoke 2 or 3 joints during the games. I play with a dude who owns the pool table and has been playing at least 10 years. He usually kicks my ass. But since I quit smoking, the past two times I've gone over there and played I've actually won way more and done noticeably better.

Side note: I took the ASVAB high (I forgot I was supposed to take it that day, I smoked a doobie before school and then when I got to school remembered we were taking the ASVAB that day)

I got a 95 on the AFQT which means I did better than 95% of all people who took it.
Go figure

Why? If you're smoking that much weed you seriously need to examine your life and figure out why you're doing it in the first place. Two to six grams a day and adds up to a hell of a lot of money and no one needs to be stoned 24/7.

Keep it down to once a week or something. Just like anything else it should be part of your life not be your life.

Instead of withdrawing completely all at once, maybe try doing so slowly, you said you smoke three times a day, yeah? Instead of smoking three times a day, smoke twice, and then once, then half a joint, and keep smoking half until you feel like you can get through the day without it bothering you, it's the only way I can see this working for you, however if you've just ran out of weed and have no intentions of quitting, go and get more if you need it badly enough.

So you'll neglect the one site that takes information from actual scientists themselves and complies information about said drugs into one encyclopedia? Congratulations on your pharmacy degree from ignorance, please learn about the drugs themselves before trying to create an already moot rebuttal.

Then again what else do I expect from the know-it-all jackasses of Newgrounds?

"Oh a drug I've never used must be terrible in said ways because everyone else says so."

Erowid is far from being any sort of academic bastion of neurochemical study. It's mostly just full of idiots cutting up nutmeg and posting trip reports after shoving it up their assholes.

A lot of information on there is also un-validated/uncited and open for user submission. It's not viewed by anybody with an academic background in psychotropics as anything more than the wikipedia of drugs, which is basically what it is.

Congratulations on your pharmacy degree from ignorance, please learn about the drugs themselves before trying to create an already moot rebuttal.

Well I thought getting my degree in these things helped stave away my ignorance, but if you have a better suggestion for that, feel free to bounce some ideas off of me.

Then again what else do I expect from the know-it-all jackasses of Newgrounds?

An awful lot if the above isn't good enough, apparently.

"Oh a drug I've never used must be terrible in said ways because everyone else says so."

Please don't tell me you're stupid enough to think you're the only high schooler out there who has ever smoked weed.

I think you'll need a refund on that degree, everything's pretty much addictive whether prescribed or not. Marijuana is a very low level risk of addiction in comparison, also it's harm risk is just as low as it's addiction level. You're trying very hard to sound convincing that you know what you're talking about, and I respect the fact that you may or may not have a degree in such things.

But if you think Marijuana is a huge problem regarding addiction, you've obviously haven't seen the pill addicts that get prescribed their own poison.

At least Marijuana is organic; grown from the ground, and not altered in a lab.

Sounds to me like if you do have a degree, you've gotten ripped off pretty damn bad.

Now please, go push your "degree" elsewhere.

Yeah. Because I never made any claims. I frankly couldn't care less if the OP smokes himself retarded with six grams a day (jesus christ, if you aren't getting stoned off of one gram, you might want to re-evaluate which drug you're taking from an economic standpoint alone), and I never made any claims about marijuana dependency. I'm just pointing out, as others in this thread have, that going around saying "marijuana is completely non habit forming and chronic abuse of it isn't symptomatic of any psychiatric/personality problems at all!" is ass backwards stupid and fairly irresponsible. If people can manage to completely fuck their lives up with alcohol dependency, they can do it with marijuana as well.

I think you'll need a refund on that degree, everything's pretty much addictive whether prescribed or not. Marijuana is a very low level risk of addiction in comparison, also it's harm risk is just as low as it's addiction level. You're trying very hard to sound convincing that you know what you're talking about, and I respect the fact that you may or may not have a degree in such things.

I really don't, because nothing I said was remotely inaccurate.

But if you think Marijuana is a huge problem regarding addiction, you've obviously haven't seen the pill addicts that get prescribed their own poison.

I don't, and the chemical dependency of other drug abusers doesn't help your point any. Again, alcohol is a good comparison here. People abusing opiates and barbiturates may develop a quicker physical dependency on the substance, but take a quick look at alcoholism rates in the United States and tell me you think that means alcohol isn't a high risk for substance abuse.

At least Marijuana is organic; grown from the ground, and not altered in a lab.

So is Arsenic, Nightshade, Opium, and psilocybin. All of which have potentially fatal effects!

Sounds to me like if you do have a degree, you've gotten ripped off pretty damn bad.

Now please, go push your "degree" elsewhere.

I wasn't pushing my education, I'm telling you that reading a poorly constructed drug database doesn't make you "educated". It makes you slightly more educated than the average popping CCC's in civics class.
