I agree with MickeyCheeky as far as taking the step to healing completely.

As far as withdrawal symptoms, I know from many many attempts at quitting various drugs that the mental aspects of withdrawal can be the most difficult. One thing that has helped me greatly and may help you is a deep observation of time. If you understand that it will get better over time, it may help you focus on staying away from the herb just one more moment. Many recovery groups talk about one day at a time. Let's break it down even more. Try not to pick up for a minute at a time. It WILL get better. Marijuana dependency is real and it took me a long time to get off of it for good.

One thing that helped me and is a bit of a crutch (and if you look at my meds you'll see I'm only where I am because of a crutch), high grade CBD oil may help you greatly. Depending on where you live, you may even be able to but hemp buds that look and smell like the real deal but have hardly any THC. This is what I used to completely break my dependency to cannabis.

Good luck.

Hi all,
I'm proud to say that I've abstained from MJ for 7 months now and haven't looked back! I see a drug and alcohol counsellor now to try to get to the roots of my propensity for substance abuse. I still drink wayyy too much when I do drink, I still love the occasional speed/coke session, but it's a work in progress.

I would not take another prescription drug like gabapenten to replace cannabis... I am wondering if youíre feeling all the anxiety, depression, anger etc that youve been suppressing with cannabis. You could definitely be feeling a lot of things that you donít know how to deal with. My personal beliefs are that cannabis is the safest thing out there to treat a lot of issues from mental health issues to physical stuff, but if that isnít the route you want to take I would highly recommend therapy to help you process and learn new coping skills if you arenít already in therapy..

Good work.

Thatís all you can do, keep moving forwards.
