Default Re: Cannabis withdrawal?

I agree with MickeyCheeky as far as taking the step to healing completely.

As far as withdrawal symptoms, I know from many many attempts at quitting various drugs that the mental aspects of withdrawal can be the most difficult. One thing that has helped me greatly and may help you is a deep observation of time. If you understand that it will get better over time, it may help you focus on staying away from the herb just one more moment. Many recovery groups talk about one day at a time. Let's break it down even more. Try not to pick up for a minute at a time. It WILL get better. Marijuana dependency is real and it took me a long time to get off of it for good.

One thing that helped me and is a bit of a crutch (and if you look at my meds you'll see I'm only where I am because of a crutch), high grade CBD oil may help you greatly. Depending on where you live, you may even be able to but hemp buds that look and smell like the real deal but have hardly any THC. This is what I used to completely break my dependency to cannabis.

Good luck.
