    My therapist wants me to quit..

    1
    So I have recently starting going to AA meetings, but since I quit I started smoking more. I love smoking. I think it is great. It's not like I use it to hide or forget about anything. I enjoy smoking and love how it makes me feel. I understand why my therapist is concerned, because I am replacing alcohol with pot, but I feel completely different when I smoke. When I drink I become a different...

    Yet another day clean.Starting taking natural sleep pills as well as 5HTTP, or maybe it's 5HTP, the later sounds less like a web address. Either way has anyone else tried the 5HTP stuff, how did it effect you?Not feeling any urge to get high so that's a PLUS, but still having one hell of a time sleeping through the night without waking up a billion times.Still feels better than ever not having...

    I hate 12 steps makes me mad going to meetings

    Every time I quit weed, I go back to these MA groups in my area. Each time I go I hope to come out feeling glad that there are other people like me, but when I leave I have a bad feeling inside and am quite angry at myself for going through the meeting, again.Most people identify themselves as drug addicts or alcoholics, which is great and all, but I wish most everyone was a weed addict as I...

    The only things I can say I miss about you are ; The ability to stay asleep through the night without having dreams wake me up every hour or two.I also miss spending 25+ a day on weed to keep that feeling of getting high going...because anything less than an 1/8 or a G of oil just will not do it. I miss that feeling of crap I don't have enough for the day what am I going to do since I spent most...

    sarah321 [345]Aug 1Has anyone been addicted to marijuana? It does not give me anxiety but I can't stop using it as a distraction. Any advice or kind words would be helpful.

    Maybe a month in without weed, I lost track. Still feeling pretty positive about it all, and deff feeling allot better than I ever did while addicted to weed. Only thing I can't seem to get under control is the sleeping. For the life of me I can't get more than 2 hours of sleep then I wake up, go back to sleep for an hour or two, and do it all again up until the 4-5 hour mark and then just say...

    These dreams are just starting to get really bad and vivid.  It's always one to two weeks after quitting weed and then I start getting really really great dreams fun dreams dreams that I never remember before  when I smoked weed. Then after a little while in my dream something turns and it starts going downhill. A good dream always turns into a really really really bad dream to the point where...

I have joined this sight partly because I...

    Hello World

    Hello All,   My story, I smoked pot, did some other drugs and drank for most of my teenage years. I came from an abusive family.   I now have 28 years sobriety but there is a hitch. I never felt I qualified for N.A., I always felt it was geared to heroin addicts.   I never felt I qualified for A.A. either as I may only be considered a heavy drinker by the Bigbooks definition.  So basically...
