Am I physically addicted to the Herb?
Posted 23 December 2011 - 05:33 PM
If I stop smoking, will these symptoms get worse? I'm mostly concerned about my weight--95lbs at 20 years old. For some odd reason, weed hasn't helped me gain a single pound. But if I'm not high, I can't eat. If I quit I'll lose more weight, and I'm already dangerously thin (I'm 5'5 also).
What are some suggestions? Thank you

they claim marijuana has no withdrawals, but I've experienced severe anxiety, stomach pain, and insomnia. The insomnia is the worst part.
I'm on day two no weed after months of 5-10 bowls per day. I'm super irritable but the insomnia, thankfully, is non-existent. In my experience, sativas produce far worse insomnia when you run out of herb.

Most smokers will tell you there's no such thing as withdrawals because they're so hell-bent on dogmatically championing weed as the greatest-thing-since-sliced-bread-with-absolutely-nothing-fucking-wrong-with-it-ever. This is a stupid position to take, and one that is blind to the research:

Also you may be hooked on pot. I know it's possible, when I stop for awhile all that really happens is I don't eat as much the first day, then that's it. I have insomnia, so when I stop for a few days its pretty fucking bad, but then it goes back to regular, go to bed at 11, fall asleep at 1 instead of 2 or 3.
I don't get irritable or anything like that, just what I stated. Hard to imagine people go through legit withdrawals from the herb =O If that's the case, then I would think you have some psychological issues concerning addiction, or psychological dependency, cause that's pretty fucking hard core. That's like heroin withdrawals.
Lets just examine it:
With an opiate, everyone will get withdrawals, it's just a matter of time on how much you use.
With weed, only a few people get withdrawals. It's not a drug that says, "Hey! use me for a year straight and you will get withdrawals" (unlike above statement.)
It is also a known fact that people self medicate using drugs, and marijuana is a common drug for that, as it relieves a wide variety of symptoms, and can also mask a wide variety of symptoms.
I've been using weed for almost 4 years now, and I barely get withdrawals, idk if they could even be considered withdrawals, maybe I'm just experiencing my insomnia for the first time in awhile which is why it seems bad?
If you are getting withdrawals from weed, I would highly suggest you go see a doctor or a councilor, because I'm willing to bet a lot of cash or herb that you have additional psychological, or physical problems.

Anyways op, I believe your issues are possibly weight/health related. Stop smoking pot and put on some weight dude. Get healthy first, then feel free to use drugs.

After a long night of hitting my bong, it was time to head home.

I'm starting to hear voices, it must be the weed I'm smoking all the time.
I can't eat when I don't smoke, it must be the weed.
They then shift the blame to the drug, as to avoid dealing with what ever problems they may have.
Now I'm not saying you can't be addicted to weed and get withdrawals, but when a huge huge huge portion of the pot smoking community doesn't develop withdrawals, then you most likely have other problems, and the weed is just furthering those problems. Because when you look at hard drugs, everyone who does them develops a withdrawal.

I dont get anxiety I get the nausea, no sleep, and moodiness...best advice is eat even if you arent hungry you'll find that your appetite will be awoken from a THC slumber and your actually fuckin starving...95 pounds dude? EAT, it doesnt even matter what that is crazyyy low nourish yourself get a fuckin smoothie if your having a hard time keeping down solids.
yeah it sucks but it wont last longer then a few days and then its back to normal
unlike opiates that will physically fuck you up (imagine the worst flu ever) or Xanax which can cause seizures when you take it for a prolonged period of time and I've beat both of those and can tell you weeds the lesser of all those evils...
Its like an old friend to me by now...not that i don't have plenty of friends and family sometimes i just need to be me and at this point "me time" involves smoking some high grade marijuana I dont bother a fuckin soul, i dont go driving, it ALWAYS puts me in a better mood because i dont smoke schwag and I get high every time I smoke unless I'm with one of my weed disposal friends who just smoke back to back back...
