    Im 31 and have been pretty much smoking everyday since i was about 19. Weed has become something unmanageable in my life and has become a chore, health risk and a waste of money. One of my problems is i am a very functioning addict and always want to do productive things when i am high. It helps me focus as well. However I know i could be doing just as well if not better without it plus i am tired of the fogginess/cloudiness mentally it makes me live in sometimes. Stopping has been unsuccessful for me in the past but i hope by posting here and putting it out more to the universe i can have success. Thank you for reading.

    I wish you luck , it is HARD to quit , 90% Mentally Addictive imo or in my case.

    I smoked from age 13 (1984) to age 39 ish , I was able to put it down for Dr / Legal reasons ( usually when I ran out the first day w/o was the worst & if I could go 2-3 days it would get easier each day.

    It usually made me want to do things add motivation + I really enjoyed smoking in the Woods or Secluded spots while metal detecting , I did miss that & smoking at Christmas .

    Fast forward to May 2019 , I go to my crazy Dr. I was Not thinking about getting a 'Low Thc CBD Oil Card' I asked the nurse "reckon why my dreams are so anxiety filled' ? Well got happy paid A-lot for the Dr, & the Card & still to this Day I do not know where to get THC CBD Oil . W/O Ordering it & I rarely Order things like that.

    Well having the 'Card' I was told (I should have done my research ) that I could get Bud in AL or FL , that was BS.

    With no oil I started smoking Bud Again in late May now I smoke just like I did before I quit ( I just enjoy the whole smoking process ) & take about 5 extra bong hits than I need , Ill smoke a Gram by myself in one sitting.

    I stated to myself that I would "Try" to quit on New Years but that's going slowly .

    Good Luck mikeperez.

    Quick update .
    I have cut back a bit since Friday cause Sun morn I woke up with super nausea then dry heaved all day until I had to get up at 4 am yesterday as I could not lay there suffering anymore.

    So I got through 2 days W/o Smoking , 'Sun & Monday .
    I really did not crave it yesterday but I took 2 bong hits cause it was here and the best quality i've had in months .

    I don't crave to smoke right now but around 3-5 pm Ill start joansen .

    Got it in my mind that i'm wanna quit now i'm waiting for the day that I won't crave it anymore.
    Guess that's a start. ???
