Hello everyone, I quit smoking pot.
It has been a long time since my last blog update, although have been dropping in and posting on the forums. It has been close to 1o months since I began my voyage to rid myself of my marijuana addiction, and it has been quite a ride. I haven’t smoked anything in the last 3 months and am beginning to experience a new feeling of freedom and confidence.
I’ll be honest folks, I really struggled when I first tried to quit smoking. I knew that if I persisted, I would be succesfull. I don’t think that I can define success in the long run – just that each day that I choose not to smoke is a positive one.
I have kept myself very busy during the last 3 months – one of the things that I spent a huge amount of time on was researching marijuana addiction, withdrawal, and struggles facing people like you and I. I will continue to update the site with the best knowledge, help and guidance I can find.
When I started, I didn’t really have a map to help me through the quitting process. Each hiccup along the way was unexpected and stressful. I truly believe that making a plan is a key step to the quitting process. I was lucky enough to stumble upon Gary Evans, the Cannabis Coach and his audio series “The Easy Quit Marijuana Audio Program”. This audio set gave me the plan and motivation to follow through with my goal and remain “weed free” for 3 months now. The first day that I quit, I set the day aside to listen to the entire program, and for a week after, I would listen to it in my car, and when walking in the evening (I highly recommend rigorous exercise in the first few days of quitting). I continue to listen to some sections of the program, like the 6 step method, to reinforce my resolve and behavior.
