Today is the third day after I have quit smoking weed and while I don’t feel 100% normal yet I am beginning to feel better. Some people report going through major mood swings and depression when they first stop smoking weed but thus far I think my mood has been pretty consistent. Last night was probably the best that I have slept in a long time even though I was a little rough when I fist got up things got better. I have been trying to fill my time with productive things so I have been hitting the gym everyday first thing in the morning. This has really helped me to stop smoking weed because working out has always been something that I loved doing and I always feel a million times better after a workout. It also also puts me in a positive mental state and makes being productive and happy the rest of the day much easier so I plan on continuing to exercise quite a bit.
Stop Smoking Weed and Be Prepared To Be Bored
Now that I have quit smoking weed and my brain is detoxing from the THC I am seeing how much of my free time was taken up by just getting high. Now that I am not smoking weed anymore doing the same routine, work, school, get blazed seems so boring and I have been trying hard to keep myself busy and not just sitting around thinking about how much fun it would be to go get a sack and get blazed the rest of the night. Smoking weed dulled my senses and made me watch tv shows and movies that I would normally think were retarded, I used to read all the time and love watching documentaries which is something that I have really been enjoying getting back into. It seems like when I was smoking weed all the time not only was the pot making me dumb but it also dumb ed down the information that I would put into my brain which has a ripple effect. Not good, but I’m getting back to normal which has been really nice.
Still Following the THC Detox Diet
I have been trying to follow a pretty strict detox diet to try to get the THC out of my system quicker. I don’t have to take any drug tests so its not for that its just that I am trying to get back to normal as quick as I can. For breakfast I have been starting off with fruit and then a couple of eggs, then some whey protein for a morning snack. Then for my other meals I usually do steamed vegetables and grilled chicken breast and I bought some dates and yogurt for dessert. Its amazing that now I’m not smoking weed anymore my cravings for sweets has almost gone away entirely. Normally I am pretty careful about what I eat and because I have always worked out I naturally like to eat pretty good. When I smoked weed I constantly craved sugary junk foods which became both bad for my health and bad for my wallet. I was spending all this money on buying weed and then on top of that I would shell out five bucks for just candy and fast food, things I hardly ever used to eat. It just feels nice getting back to normal and feeling healthy and balanced again both mentally and physically.
