    Hits from the bong...detoxing

    I will start by saying that weed is awesome! I have smoked on and off since I was 20 with breaks here and there. Sometimes months, occasionally for a year. As time has passed my tolerance and dependence have increased to the point I'm not loving it right now.

    So I decided last month to take a break from consuming THC. I fell off the wagon a couple weeks ago and am now trying again.

    Today is day 2. I am hurting from the withdrawal. Fever, chills, nausea, and I have terrible night sweats. Anybody have any remedies other than cranberry juice and well, weed? I'm hoping to make it a while this time, possibly maybe even permanently. I'm still wrapping my mind around it.

    I find that narcotics like oxy and hydrocodone are very useful for pot withdrawal. Dilaudid if you can get it.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    I have no access to hydros or oxy unfortunately. What is Kratom?
    Quitting used to be easy. Concentrates have changed the game.

    Bath salts should do the trick.

    Are you sure it's not AIDS?


    Seriously though, I would start with mellow edibles to taper off, not quit cold turkey from a heavy concentrate habit. Like get some Zoot Rocks and take one every 4-6 hours and then taper off for a few days.

    Im on the same program. Quit a couple days ago. Not feeling the withdrawal effects. Are you sure you don't have the flu?

    Weed seems to help my weed-withdrawal problems a lot.

    I've been smoking pretty much daily probably longer than you've been alive and when I haven't been able to do so like on the 10-day trip overseas last year, I was completely fine. No issues. I second the thought that you might have the flu.

    Ice, go edibles for international travel. Easy, neat, no telltale odors.

    Definitely not the flu. I encountered these symptoms last summer when I took a break from heavy concentrate use.

    I'm not sure that edible route is good for me. I struggle with moderation so cold turkey is about the only way I can get it done I'm afraid.

    @Benny: Yeah I took some with me on a trip to Japan but it was too weird and paranoia-inducing (maybe because it was Japan) so when I went on another trip later in the year I just bagged it and drank wine.

    i find that if i don't make it a win/lose proposition it's easier to deal with. you have perfectly reasonable reasons for wanting to take a break. you've smoked plenty so it's not like you don't know what you're getting and haven't enjoyed it. you may smoke again down the road, probably will, no big deal. but for now you're committing to doing something else.

    if i make it absolute "i'm quitting" and i HAVE to quit the psychological strain of the setup pretty much guarantees i will slip. if i focus on the change i'm trying to make -- improving my pulmonary function to lose weight -- rather than the thing i'm trying to stop -- evil weed -- i find it easier to focus on the rational choice and just keep working harder on that.

    i'm not saying it's not hard. i've had to leave places to get out of the grip of things because i knew it would kill me if i didn't. you're capable of change. you have changed before in innumerable ways. free will is great if you accept it.

    Lay off the concentrates man. Go back to vaping flower. Sounds like you need to ween instead of cold turkey. Exercise and eat clean, no sugars. Good luck bro, that sux.

    I have recently cut way back- just find some schwag or even nice sugar leaf. You still go thru the motions and it's enough to take the edge off

    Haha. It's not heroin, but it hurts.

    Definitely not a one size fits all thing. Years ago I read a study re the wide range of effects that daily pot smoking can have on individual's respective serotonin levels. Of course, it's no surprise that daily or near daily pot use affects different people differently. Here's a link to a related study concluding that THC in low doses can help depression but in high doses can worsen depression, and what constitutes a "high" or "low" does varies greatly among individuals. Again, no surprise there.

    NW_SKIER, if your withdraw symptoms persist, consider seeing a shrink re getting a happy pill scrip. I once hung out with a chronic waker & baker who had big time withdrawal symptoms when he tried to wean off pot until he was put on a low dose of Wellbutrin, which, he said, made it easy to stop smoking pot. And he seemed to gain 20 IQ points. Last I heard he weaned off the Wellbutrin and was still straight, which is good because he seems to be wired no pot vs. pot every day and often with no in-between ground.

    Yea, replace one drug for another pain killer type that probably is more addictive if taken regularly and harder to get off.
