How to cope with being out of bud?

Discussion in 'Marijuana Consumption Q&A' started by fitftw, Mar 22, 2012.

  1. dude get over it lmaoo

    not having weed isn't really something you have to "cope with".
  2. Yeah, it is, at least the first day dry after weeks or months not being dry. It's painful.

    3 days is usually the point where it doesn't bother you anymore. This goes for cigarettes mainly. I was 1000x worse when I quit cigs than I am right now. 3 days dry I'll be back to normal. But I won't go 3 days dry.
  3. Oh and cannabis is not addictive, it is however habit forming. Most people that cite it as being addictive point out how everyday users complain they need some to calm down.

    This is due to the fact that our brains produce naturally produce cannabinoids that are used to regulate stress. Once an individual starts to repeatedly introduce an outside source of cannabinoids the brain will cease production of its own.

    Now when the daily user quits smoking the cannabinoid levels drop before the brains production kicks in. This interim period is know to be more 'stressful'.

    But back to the original statement marijuana is no more addictive then caffeine.

    So it's not addictive, but typically it takes a few days to stop being cranky, irritable, and generally pissed the fuck off like I am right now.

    If you smoke all day, every day for a month and just stop abruptly, how the FUCK do you not think about and crave weed ALL DAY LONG? Get the fuck out of here. I'm talking specifically to non-daily smokers here who laugh at my pain of being dry. They seem to be the majority of people on this forum for some reason. Maybe I should make a poll thread, to see the % of daily/non-daily.
  5. I only read through the first couple responses, but god damn, wtf happend to grasscity? When the hell did everyone become such an uptight asshole? God damn guys... This is a pot forum, chill out and stop hating.

    OP - I feel you man. Going from being high all the time, to just not smoking an entire day really does suck. I fucking hate it. Like, shit, right now... I almost ALWAYS wake and bake like atleast an hour after I wake up. I havent today (picking up in an hour) and Im already thinking to myself how gay it is that I have no nug, lol. :smoke:

    Take it easy is my opinion, try to take your mind off the nug. Look at the bright side of it, you get a couple day T-break. And from my experience, even 1 day makes a huge fucking noticeable difference.
  6. Smoke the plastic bag you last picked up some bud in.
  7. yeah as an every day smoker it sucks when I don't have anymore weed (I fucking love weed lol), but I still don't really see it as something that bad. I like to spread my weed out over several days and save the last bit for the morning of the first day of a break. it's better than smoking all the time and then not having weed one day. just like quitting cigarettes it's better to slow down before you stop.
  8. I quit cigs cold turkey, and I never did cut down before I quit. 12-15 cigs a day, sometimes a full pack. Almost 6 months now. I could quit weed the same way, but why the fuck would I want to do that lol cigs smell like asshole, and they made me feel like shit, and they didn't give me a buzz, it was a solid waste of time and money. I smoked cigs for 10 straight years.
  9. I love cigarettes lol :( I feel like I'm never gonna be able to quit. the best I do is smoking just a few a day. I'm especially used to smoking a cigarette after smoking weed, having a bowl would be so weird without a cigarette soon after. there was one night a couple years ago I literally smoked a whole pack in a day/night. WTF
  10. Yeah it was real bad for me in my college days. At parties I could go through an entire pack in 2 or 3 hours. Literally chainsmoking. I'm so glad I quit. Though I did quit in 2010 as well, and I lasted 6 months. This time I won't relapse. I had a black&mild at a casino a few weeks ago and I hated myself for it. Couldn't help myself though, casinos smell like ashtrays and it made me crave one so bad. As soon as I left, I didn't feel like I wanted one.

  12. Just shut up dude. Weed is not hard to quit I've done it 5 times no problems.

    So because it's easy for you, it must be easy for me?

    That's like saying "I quit cigs so ANYBODY should be able to."

    Or "I became abstinent. It's so fucking easy, just quit having sex and stop jerking off."

    Fuck you. Quitting weed sucks more than almost anything I can think of besides physical pain.
  14. Its funny because I bet that the majority of those daily tokers who are saying its not crack probably would find a break to be extremely hard.
  15. It's that easy for everybody. Some people, like you, just have absolutely no willpower and aren't even willing to admit it - and somehow justify blaming the pot for being "addictive".

    I smoke for 2 years every day, and I quit with no problems other than it took me an extra 30 mins to fall asleep.

    It is not hard to quit. Get over it. Get a job or a hobby. Do something productive with your life in the time you'd normally be smoking. It's just a plant, it's about as addictive as WoW.

  17. So then why do you smoke weed, if you don't want to do it for the rest of your life? Do you even smoke anymore? You said you quit. Why? Besides for passing a drug test to get a job, I don't see why the fuck you'd want to stop.

  18. Whats up man. I am all to familiar with your situation, and I to am surprised at the lack of compassion on this forum. There have been a couple times when I had to stop for an extended amount of time for various reasons and I know how much it fucking blows. The first few days are the worst for sure, the best thing to do as some objective posters have noted is do what you can to take your mind off of weed. It's hard to do, especially when you have a routine of smoke times. When its normally time for a blaze, try taking a short nap instead, I found this helped me overcome the initial increased anxiety.

    Sometimes having a drink will help too, (if its an appropriate time for alcohol of course). I pretty much never drink, but a glass of cranberry juice mixed with cheap vodka helped relax me in lieu of a bowl.

    Granted its not that hard to "quit" weed as there is no physical addiction, but some of the response posts are straight up asinine. I am not ashamed to admit that I use weed as a crutch to help me deal with depression, anxiety, and the realties of life. Running out of weed is a major blow to my day/week/whatever. Good luck bro stay strong and know that you aren't alone, there are in fact some like-minded individuals on this forum.

    ^ funny you mention alcohol. I had 3 shots last night, and I never drink, EVER. My girlfriend does sometimes. She doesn't smoke.

    I'm glad there's at least ONE other person in here who knows what I'm talking about/going through. Thanks man. I'm picking up in less than 3 hours. I'm going to the gym now to take my mind off of it. When I come back it'll be almost time.
  20. I never even mentioned If I want to smoke it the rest of my life, haha.

    I said I have been forced to quit about 5 times. That means stop smoking for long periods of time.

    Maybe because sometimes the money and time can be better spent on other aspects in life?
