    Yup that is what people call em. Brain shocks.

    I went cold turkey from 300mg because the place that sent me my meds for free failed to tell me they were out of stock. Yet I got an automated message saying it was being shipped.

    I went 5 days without it and then had to buy two weeks halfdosage to hold me over. I never went back to full dosage. Ef that. I am not running out of meds again.

    I try to avoid the pharmaceutical drugs as much as possible , I watched them slowly destroy a loved one with grief , misery , addiction, withdrawal, organ failure and then eventually death .. I dont take anything myself and have no intentions of taking any of these poisons ever again ..

    Pills to me represent greed and evil , real medicine is from our mother earth

    If you quit caffeine, herbs should be no problem. Caffeine is incredibly addictive!

    You need to reset your daily cycle. There are lots of little tricks to help you through it. For instance, doing any given task for no more than 30 minutes will keep you busy. Make sure you change this behavior for at least one month. One month, one day at a time. Be sure to give yourself breaks. This isn't a task, its a goal! Remove all reminders of that which you want to change and remind yourself of your goal.

    If this is real for you (it sounds like it is... Why else post this on an MJ site? lol) then you need to ignore naysayers and do what's good for you. I'd say good luck, but luck has nothing to do with life changes. Truthfully, if you still want herbs in your life after you've regained control, that's gonna take some luck. Most addictive behaviors cannot be resumed after they have been negated.

    Remember: Pause, Reflect, Act. ​I can't stress this enough. Pause. Reflect. Act. You can do what you want.

    Well I was started on antidepressants when I was 14. Effexor has few side affects, but horrible withdrawals. I hope to one day be free of it, but I have to take it one step at a time.

    My mom couldn't exactly give me weed, lol.

    I had some serious problems. Through counseling, constant support, and meds I was able to get through each day. She made the best choice at the time for me.

    My wife is on Effexor, she hates it but cannot fathom going through hell to get off it. The word 'Effexor' makes me irritable. Its terrible shit to put someone on long term.

    I am down to 150mg. I have a cousin who is on 37.5 mg and she gets withdrawals when without.

    I have read testamonies of people who slowly wean themselves down and STILL get withdrawals. Scary stuff.

    Thats a good link, now you have all the tools to do it bud, summers even coming so that will be a good excuse to get out and enjoy life instead of sit inside and smoke weed. Clean out all the crap that triggers the need for weed cept one small pipe and put that away when not In use. Ween yourself back like youve been doing. PM me if you need support, now getter done man, times a wastin :):):)

    It is terrible, terrible shit. And to think, it's weed that is outlawed. Ridiculous.

    funny thing is my relationship with weed. See, I LOVE it, been smoking for 16 years now, since I turned 16. But I have a habit of just fucking smoking through it and when it's gone, its gone. So I have these stoned periods followed by a week of me being a cock and regaining my acuity. Needless to say, I'm waiting on the next dirge. So I understand the cycle of have and have not so well, it seems easy to me.
    It isn't a joke though, habitual behavior can be a fucking nightmare to break.

    I agree, Marijuana should be LEGAL. I don't think it should be sold behind a counter at a store (nor do I think tobacco or alcohol should). Prescription drugs invented by big pharma are super bad and have terrible side effects, I know first hand.

    Well if you seriously have a problem with withdrawals of marijuana, legalization will not help you.

    I'm not worried about it helping me. Plenty of folks out there dealing with cancer, MS, and a host of other really shitty diseases that could use the weed.

    I've been thinking about it a lot and I don't use marijuana medicinally.

    I use it as a coping mechanism. Whenever something isn't going good, I'm smoking. Issue at work, smoke. Issue at home, smoke. I think this is where my 'addiction' stems from.

    I agree with you but only on a self sustainability standpoint. If you enjoy these things you should be alowed to make them yourself. We pay for convinence these day because most people dont have the time in their schedules to roll cigars from tobacco and brew their own suds. :):):)
