    Hey guys just about to complete my 11th day sober after about a month and half long binge on marijuana. This is my longest time spent sober from weed and the cravings are starting to get a little weaker. I have strong cravings at night when I would always smoke but when I wake up in the morning it is gone and I’m glad I did not put my thoughts into action. I’ve also noticed I’m getting better at managing cravings by letting them rage in my mind but just waiting and later they leave and I’m left with peace of mind. Just thought I’d share my story but the cravings at night are still strong af! Feel free to give me any support/comments. Thank you

    Eleven days sober is FANTASTIC, @Anonymous12356! Congrats, my friend! I'm super proud of you!

    I'm glad to hear the cravings are lessening overall. I bet those nighttime ones can be a b*tch, though. Maybe try some deep-breathing exercises when those cravings hit you before bedtime. There are certain breathing exercises that can help reduce stress and promote quicker, better sleep. I use this one all the time:

    @Anonymous12356 i'm glad to hear that you're doing well and congrats on your 11th day clean from marijuana!

    that's great! they say cravings only last so long, so like a surfer rides a wave, ride the wave of the craving, knowing that it will not last that long... and you'll be free from that feeling or compulsion to use here soon.

    thanks for the update!! :) have a great weekend!
