this thread is inspired from panty's Poison thread.. so ive come to the conclusion that ive fucked my body enuff, and that if i continue with on the same note, i wont get to see my 40th b day... my love for weed smoking, no exercise, and donner kebabs have been recorded on many occasions on this forum, and ive always been a cannabis ambassador, promoting its positive effects. but... since of recently ive been feeling like a junkie..honestly, first thing in the morning, spliff.. and not just one that is... when i get to work (stoned ofcourse), all i can think of is my lunch break, so i can have a quick spliff... back home from work, i got stuff to do, like send self promotion emails, sort out student loans/accomodation....nah, i'll have a spliff... i should really have a mix, check for new tunes on the net, maybe even do sum doodles on Cubase..... fuck, i'll spliff myself stupid... you may be thinkin, "so what? i smoke weed and get on with my days stuff" not me...ive been smokin so much of that skunk stuff, that i get paralyzed on the couch, watching scrubs over and over again... the other day, i smoked about a 1/8 of skunk before i got to work... and thats a 2 1/2 hour timeline... plus, apart from making me lazy, ive started to get these weird headaches.. like a tingling around my head, which has only gone worse the more i smoke.. also feelin sort of breath on many occasions too... i mean, fuck man, the other day, i run to catch the bus, like 50 yards or summit, and i didnt stop gasping, until 20 min later that i got off the bus.. so... as of last monday, ive been 100% ganj free.. this complements my meat free diet which started last week, and is part of a wider agenda, which includes regular visits to the gym and pool, planned to commence in a week on monday. gotta say, quitting meat was much easier than i thought, but no weed has a bad effect on me. im a little better now, but the first two days where hell, well depressed/unmotivated, tho i have to say ive found amounts of will power that i never thought i had. Just the fact that me, dopefiend extraordinaire, managed to flush my last bag of weed down the toilet without second thoughts, made myself well proud. also, ive been testing myself by hangin round mates places, with heave spliff circulation, and sayin NO to every single bifter offered. damn, its hard work tho.. Most of my pals think im takin it too seriously, "comon man, its only herb, its not like youre addicted to it.." YES I AM FOR FUCK SAKE ive been reading about it, and about 8% of cannabis smokers develop a psychological addiction to it. and, as in my case, addicts dont smoke to get stoned, but to just feel normal again, just like a heroin user.. i stil feel quite weak, and i cant have a good persepctive on my case until a fortnight clean (blood donors must be clean of recreational drugs for 14 days). its been a long post, soz, but i gotta let sum stuff of my chest.. any advice, or similar stories more than welcome, HELP !!!
