Quit

Posted 23 April 2017 by Bobby
I am so glad that I decided to quit today I am not wanting to smoke weed and the bad things are outweighing the good at this point I really do not want to do drugs at all and I'm now realizing the downward effects of smoking weed

Stop

Posted 23 April 2017 by Bobby
Today I chose to quit smoking weed I chose to do so in an effort to promote a healthier lifestyle to be a good role model to my children and to live drug-free. I am so tired of wasting my money not being able to remember things and having a hard time managing my emotions at times as a result of the Mental effects and chemical in the brain

Never quit trying to quit.

Thought I'd chuck a journal entry up, hopefully it might help a few of you struggling to get off the green. I'm 35, had my first cone at 13, and by 15, I was an every day smoker. And I've smoked every day since then. For years I was a huge pot advocate, and I still am in many ways, but I've got a point in my life where I know it's doing me more damage than good, so it's time to quit for good. This isn't my first time. I've been down this road at least a dozen times before. And failed. But here is where my advice might help... Don't ever quit trying to quit. Ever. Don't beat yourself up when you can't get through a day without a smoke, I've been there too and quitting isn't easy. It takes practice, and sometimes, our head just isn't in the right place, or life throws you a curve ball, and you end up back where you started. Don't let the situation get you down. You tried, and you can try again. Never quit trying to quit. I don't know what it is this time, but l feel infinitely stronger this time. Maybe it's all the practice, maybe life is in the right place. Maybe this time, my hearts really in it. Time will tell, but right now, I'm two days clean and feeling strong. I still get cravings, but since I've been down this road before, I know what to expect, which makes it easier to deal with. I know what works for me, and what helps. And hey, if it all goes to shit tomorrow and I blaze up, then fuck it, I'll try again. Never quit trying to quit... I hope this helps even one of you out there to stay quit, or push through the week, the day, hell even an hour without smoking. Sometimes all we need is a little support. I'm here for anyone who needs some support. Never quit trying to quit... Believe me, every time you try makes the next time that little bit easier. Peace.

By the way part of what uv wrote is how I feel about the weed. Dam it smells amazin n i luv the taste. There's new hybrids all the time n they are fabby! However the point is... its to fekn expensive & illegal. The hard part for me is, I have dealers all round me.. neebers, good pals. I'm surrounded.. I'm struggling with tryn to break the circle but I also don't want to isolate myself. Anxiety & depression is a killer like.. I want to be straight headed & be more aware of my surroundings. I'm just so weak! I'm trying hard.. only had a few puffs yesterday (then gave masel a hard time) & I know I'm doing 80% better than I was.. just need to hang n there. This is to benefit me & my family. So hard n am choking to feel the stone. Fags were the easy bit i think.. weed is always on my mind at the moment...

My experience

Posted 18 March 2017 by danielo
Hello, this is my 2. time I try to quit smoking weed. It's a big problem because in my country it's illegal to smoke, I could loose my driver license... thats why I try it again. The first time I was able to quit for 8 months, the first 2 months was the hardest. I had depression, was agresive, wasn't hungry anymore and had a lot of nightmares. But the most terrible happend to me was that I forgot the feeling how it is to be high. So I smoke one time again and since then I started again smoking everyday. Now I try it the 2. time to quit and I hope now I can stop forever...

I feel like I should be paired with this guy.. I've quit a couple times and only ever made it half a week!! I just moved away from my roommate who is also a pot head & everytime I come home it would smell like weed... or he would smoke weed beside me while he knows I'm trying to bloody quit.. do you know how hard it is to quit something you like when your house is a damn hotbox.. id be getting second hand stoned....also he would get defensive every time I'd mention the reasons why I felt like I needed to quit and try and convince me that it was all on me and the weed had nothing to do with it. Honestly I was thinking about it the other day while stoned.. the amount of time, gas and the cost of weed it self.. is such a waste of life. Back in high school there was hand fulls of dealers, but now the only I people I do know who sell I wouldn't even consider buying from them, this how ever means I gotta drive all the way down town(1hr one way) to give away my money to sustain this miserable habit. Weed doesn't even get me stoned like it used to it just makes me feel complacent (chill) and just not give a fuck. But I know some where there is a guy who does give a shit and I should voice my opinion instead of getting stoned reflecting on all the things i should have said in that moment. But when I am stoned I just let things happen and I don't take stance on my opinions I just let people think what they want. It gives me anxiety because when I am high by myself I keep replaying the scenario in my head and thinking about all the things I should have done different, to the point where I am uncomfortable and then I just get more high to try and forget. Weed takes from me, way more then what it actually gives me. Rant over thanks for reading

Day 1

Posted 01 May 2017 by Kelly
Hiya folks.. I came across Joint Effort this morning & was amazed to find a wee community that can help each other to stop smoking weed. Not gona lie tho... it's gona be a bumpy road. It's hard when the only people I have as pals all smoke weed! It's ok to say change your routine but realistically, when your friends are quite happy smoking & not intrested really. Who can you talk to? Think this joint effort is a brilliant thing!

Day 1

Posted 12 March 2017 by Francisco
I started my day like everyday. Wake up about 6:00am, take a shower, smoke a half joint and go run about 6km. When I arrived, I just smoked the other half part, and I think about cut of some weed of my life. I think about this every time, because about 28 joints a week is so much joints, but this time I decide (still high) to take action, and I download this app.... I hope that it help-me to cut of
