Still Craving Weed, Still Saying No-Day 5

Well today is day number five of my 30 journey about how to quit smoking weed and I have been getting some pretty bad cravings to smoke weed. I think its because today is an off day for me where I don’t have any school or work to keep me busy and occupy my mind. I’m still not sleeping perfect yet but at least I am able to get to sleep unlike the first date that I quit smoking weed where I didn’t sleep a wink the whole night.  I have still been staying strong and not giving into the cravings even though they have been the worst so far. One of the biggest difference that I’ve noticed since quitting marijuana is the time of day when I think about smoking weed. When I used to smoke I would think about lighting up as soon as I got out of bed in the morning. Now it seems to get worse as the day goes on and is especially bad when I’m at home by myself with nothing pressing to do.

Marijuana Withdraw Symptoms I’ve Been Having

While my marijuana withdraw symptoms have been getting less and less I’m still experiencing them to a certain degree.

  • Lack of appetite. I am still having a hard time eating enough and have often gone too long without eating just because I don’t feel hungry. Or when I do make some food I only halfheartedly pick at it until I force myself to eat it. Working out has been helping to boost my metabolism and make me hungry so I’m hopeful this will be a short term problem as its already beginning to get better.
  • Feeling tired and lethargic. This is probably partly due to the fact that I still haven’t completely normalized my sleeping pattern and even when I do get a good nights sleep when I wake up I have to force myself to go workout and just keep pushing even when I feel like just laying around.
  • Negative thoughts. While I wouldn’t say that I’m depressed I have definitely been having some negative thinking going on. This time however I was expecting them and have been trying to keep myself positive by thinking about how far I have already come in my struggle to quit smoking weed for good and thinking about how much different things will be in a few weeks.

Overall I think I’m doing a decent job of staying positive and dealing with the cravings I’ve been having. I know I’m definitely not out of the woods yet but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and can’t wait until my life is completely back to normal and I don’t even think about smoking weed as an option anymore.

  1. Your doing so well, you should be very proud of yourself. I am also on day 5. I’m so tired, and abit emotional. I too also keep thinking I’ve come this for dont give up now. It’s one of the hardest things I’ve had to do mentally. Keep up the good work. From what I’ve read online it will get easier 😊

    1. Thank you for your kind words and congratulations on getting to day five! It will definitely get easier, after five days you are over the hardest part so the good news is that you just have to stay strong and keep positive and before you know it you will be back to feeling amazing.

  2. I am on day 5 now of quitting both the weed & nicotine. I have smoked cigarettes for 24 years & weed day in & day out (from waking til sleep time) for 22 years. Today has got to be the worst day so far!! I am not sleeping, not eating & I am still getting the sweats, I also feel so down & depressed right now! How long will these feelings last? My partner was supposed to quit on the same day & failed on the 1st day, I know there is some in the house, which is driving me crazy, I keep thinking about putting some in my pipe, that way am not taking in any nicotine, just weed, but then I think NO, I have come this far, I need to quit the weed just as much as the Nicotine & i know it would be a very stupid move to have any at all (even eating it will undo the past 5 days of sheer hell! I am using so many stop smoking products it is unreal (probably taking in more nicotine in a day than I would if I was still smoking! Sheer stubborness is what’s keeping me going (not willpower lol) Smoking cannabis has contributed to me having upper lobe Emphysema, so it is literally killing me!
