Do you want to quit smoking weed? Are you trying to cope with not having weed to smoke? Do you smoke every day all day and now you ran out? If you are trying to cope with out smoking weed for a few days or quit all together, please read this.
This blog is a document of Stanley’s experience in fighting the weed addiction when he did not have any. This is Stanley’s experience:
“Every time I smoke weed it calms the mental movies in my head. Mental Movies are those moments in my mind that give me a flash back of an aggravating moment in my life. Ironically, mental movies also consist of moments that anger me and did not happen. When I smoke weed, I actually calm those movies in my mind. Also, I smoke weed because I am lonely and I don’t want to spend too much money to enjoy myself.
When my stash is low, the first thing I want to do is call someone or go on the hunt. However, one day it hit me. Even when I am high the mental movies still occur, so what’s difference!? So one day, I said, let me just not smoke for a few days and see what happens.
The first step to do when you want to quit smoking weed or cope for a few days without smoking weed is to first minimize it in your mind. Do this by saying to yourself: I am still the same with or without the weed and I can still enjoy living without smoking. Say this even if you do not believe it. Autosuggestion is a powerful tool for any kind of achievement.
The second step to do when you want to quit smoking weed or cope for a few days without smoking weed is not to jump to the dealer when your pot stash is low. Smoke your whole weed stash out without caring when you will get some more. If you can do this, you are on your way. If you cannot do this, then you are not ready for the next steps and you must master this mental behavior in order to quit smoking weed or cope a few days without it. This step cannot be ignored. For example, if you were down to your last bud, do not call the dealer, smoke the last bud and do not go for any more weed. Finish out your last day of smoking weed and try to live your day. Go to sleep and wake up the next day. If you can’t do this step, master it until you can or else you won’t succeed.
The third step is the hardest, because it is your first whole day without any marijuana. It is a moment of truth. You trained your mind and body to get high when you wake up or start your day. You never relied on yourself or your mental power to ever cope with the day. Heck, the last time you may have done this was when you were a kid. Matters of fact, many adults want to go back to being a child again, because of the simplicity of life and the feeling of cleanliness. That feeling you have on your first day is just that, you’re a kid again. This is the feeling you use to feel when you were young, so enjoy it. The only thing is that your body and mind is out of wack and anxious from not smoking after all those endless days with ganja. To combat this, do some pushups, take a shower or eat something. This makes you feel a bit stimulated. You see, a pot head who wakes and bakes or conditions their mind to smoke is consuming something. Your body does not care what it consumes, it just wants to be stimulated by some kind of consumption. This is why people drink tea or coffee or they drink soda. From there, go about your day as you would, as hard as it will be. What you will feel is smoke shakes and maybe some sweats, but it is just your body telling you that you didn’t smoke weed today, no big deal. This third step in quitting weed or going without it for a few days is the hardest. However, once you get through this day, you quickly get used to it. The problem is I substitute human interaction and other stimulating activities for weed so long that I become programmed. This third step can reprogram you.
The fourth step is going to sleep for the first day sober. It is very hard. Especially as during the first day fighting those mental movies was impossible. As far as mental movies go, just say to yourself: I did the best I can and be patient until the movie is over. That is the only thing one can do, because you will never get rid of your demons, it is embedded in you, just make peace with it so you do not fight yourself any more. So, sleeping sober is the roughest part. Your sleeping habits will actually be messed up for a few days. Your first day sober is the worst, you will be sweating and bouncing off the walls, you may not even sleep. However, if you can get past this one horrible night the other days will be easier.
The fifth step is pretty much a repeat of step four. Make a new pattern for yourself. A lot of pot heads smoke weed first thing, well you must do something else such as: eat, shower or exercise. Another important thing to do is get some fresh air for a few minutes or possibly take a walk. This will do wonders. What you should not do is drink it off because to battle one addiction with another won’t work. Going to sleep the second day will be better, but not as good as when you were smoked up. To end the fifth step, you must go to bed a little earlier than you would usually. Once you get a good sober nights rest, weed addiction becomes small potatoes.
The sixth step is again the same. Enjoy your new found routine. On the third day, it should be less of an issue. On the third day of not smoking weed, the anxiety you had of not having any more becomes a non issue. After the third day, you can actually make a choice: should I get some more weed or am I going to say, who cares, no big deal. This step is the difference between someone who wants to quit smoking weed for real and someone who just wanted to cope for a few days without weed. This day is the crossroad. You will actually have the power to do so.
Weed addiction is different from other addictions as pot plays on hypothetical what ifs and anxieties. Once you get past that, you are in the clear.
You have to remember the best part of drug use is experiencing your body go through the feeling of not having any. Why? For the reason that, experiencing drugs is an experience and the day after of no drugs to recall the last day is another experience. Human nature is to experience life.
Greed is a big part of any addiction.
Fix yourself mentally and it can happen physically. If you really and truly do this, you can quit smoking weed all together. Or you can go from someone who needed to smoke weed every day, all day, to someone who can have control over not smoking weed when they don’t have any. “
