Quitting Weed - December 22nd 2012, 07:07 AM

I've been smoking weed daily for the last two years. The habit has cost me thousands of dollars, countless hours of my time, and it pushed me away from loved ones. (among many other negative consequences).

Smoking weed makes me a person I don't want to be; I've been tired of it for a long time. The best time to end a bad habit is the present. The longer one has a bad habit the harder it is to stop. Time flies by quickly, I've been smoking for two years, and it can easily turn into many more if I don't do something about it now.

I've tried to stop smoking many times before. I've quite for three months twice before. I also quite for shorter periods of time like weeks or a month.
Yesterday I decided to stop smoking for good. I've given my decision a lot of thought and I'm confident I will succeed.

My goal is to stay clean for 6 months. Although quitting is a lifetime commitment I feel like if I can stay clean for 6 months then I'll be able to stop for good.

I've made this thread to track my progress towards my goal. I'll update it daily for the first 3 days, then I'll update it weekly. I also made this thread to receive support and advice of this community, and maybe this thread will be helpful to other people who have the same problem.

Goal June 22, 2013

Day 1:
Today wasn't to bad. I spent most of my time at home, unlike when I smoked I'd always be out somewhere. I had good conversations with both of my parents, that I know would not have happened if I'd smoked today. I also filled out an application for school I know I wouldn't have done today if I had smoked. My urge to smoke hasn't been that strong, I've been trying to keep occupied with other activities like listening to music and playing video games. I went to eat with one of my friends, who offered me some weed, which I turned down.

Wow, this is an amazing goal! And I wish you all the luck in the world! (to coin a phrase).

I hope you are able to quit, my friends and most the people in my school smoke weed and I know how hard it is to resist temptation, so you are VERY strong to be making the commitment

Good luck,
can't wait to hear more about this,

Jay.

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.

The good news is you can't get physically addicted to weed, so quitting won't be extremely difficult as compared to quitting cigarettes.
You've got the right mindset so far, and keeping yourself distracted is a really great way to avoid smoking. You should try taking up a new hobby, such as a new sport or try learning to play a new instrument so that you have something productive to do. If you have something fun to focus on, you'll feel less dependent on smoking.
Good luck.


And here you are living, despite it all.
