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.
