i have this blog so i can look back and see my own entries to myself. this dates back to 2006… wow that is 7 years ago and I am still such a huge stoner who aspires to quit but always relapses. i guess that is called addiction so i might as well say that i am addicted to marijuana. that is the first step in realizing i have a problem is accepting that i have an addition to a drug. too much of anything is a drug. junk food is a drug. mcdonalds is a drug. weed is definitely a drug. so as i look back, my life is so damn good and weed is just always there, clouding up my memory and my days. no need. because my days are so beautiful regardless. well, im just not ever going to give up on my goal to stop smoking. fail, well, then im gonna try again. always. so heres the reality of it. just threw my second vaporizer away. sitting on a huge huge bag of green that i just want gone so I will give it to a friend. life itself is so amazing. i wish that i could just not be a stoner and i am going to hope that I can get the second half of this year…before i turn 29 (yikes)... off to a marijuana free cleanse that lasts and lasts well into my 30’s and beyond. now is the prime decade of my life ahead and my choices are crucial, i cant afford to be making big mistakes and blaming my actions on marijuana. to anyone trying to quit, stay strong, never give up, failure happens, just remember your goal and make it a reality. one day at a time. thats all we really have anyway: today 8 months ago

Been smoking for almost 7 yrs now, and I want to quit for good. Before I smoked I was so hyper, nicer, and could keep my temper under control. I have panic attacks which makes it harder for me to quit, but I figure I survived before I started smoking so I can do it again. I can’t do this on my own so I am open to any and all suggestions. 8 months ago
How I did it:
How I did it: I quit on the hardest month, the one with the holy day (4/20). People ask me why I quit. We all have reasons.. I name a couple and they begin to agree with me. But that doesn’t matter. You don’t smoke logically, you smoke emotionally. What’s that mean? It means you’re addicted to happiness. Is that a problem? I’ll explain in a minute. The only ones who don’t want you to quit are the ones you smoke with daily, it will remind them that they too are missing out on life, and they will come up with great excuses to keep you bound. I quit when my desire to improve my life was greater than my desire to keep buying into the excuses. Undeniable facts (barred from excuses): it makes you tired, it makes you eat too much, it makes you waste money. Does it really do anything else for you? YES! It makes you happy. Wait, did you hear me right? Is that a reason to continue doing it? NO! Can you smoke weed and sit in a room for the rest of your life and be happy? You sure can. But think for a second about your life 20 years from now, I did. Still smokin’ that bud, with nothing to show for it. Nothing. You know how you grow in this life? You face adversity head on, you confront discomfort and learn lessons. When you smoke you have no discomfort, and consequently you learn and accomplish only a fraction of what you would learn and accomplish otherwise. Maybe you’ll pick up smoking again some day when it gets too tough and you want out of trying, but I say why bother waking up in the morning at that point? Yea, you feel good now, but will you remember the feeling tomorrow? Do you remember the happiness you’ve felt from each time you’ve gotten high? Or was it an elusive temporary emotion? When you face the discomfort of being sober, and gain compounded knowledge and lessons that you won’t easily forget, you become someone who doesn’t need the blankie anymore. You’ve developed confidence, and a thick skin. Was it easy? YES, Was it quick? NO, did I quit cold turkey? YES! I made a decision to stop a couple times and failed, unfortunately this was more fuel for my friends who didn’t want me to stop. Let me remind you, practice makes perfect. I wanna tell you, this time it’s for real, and every passed opportunity to smoke becomes another reason not to start up again. It’s almost been a month, I’m gonna ruin that for a blunt? So what, I can be tired and waste the rest of my day? Sure the day after I quit, I was offered the most amazing bud in the world. I took that as a sign that I was moving in the right direction. It was my first lesson. The harder the universe pushes you the harder you will learn. I became addicted to learning lessons instead of taking the easy cookie. I embrace the discomfort of being sober. Knowing that I could be taking the easy way out and choosing to take the path less taken, really fires me up. I hear smokers tell me now “man i wish i could do that, man i could never stop.” Bologna. And you’ll see that once you stop, you’ll know they’re just practicing, and maybe not even intending to quit one day. But you do, and it’s a no brainer, do you want to be “happy”? Or do you want to live life the way it was intended and accept the gift the universe provides to those who face the world with courage (you weren’t born with a blunt in your hand were you?) The fact of the matter is, no weed is not that dangerous, no it’s not gonna destroy your memory, and no it’s not gonna make anyone else that much happier if you quit. What will it do for sure? It will make you HAPPY. But ask yourself this, is it worth it? Read how I did it… 3 years ago
I stole one of my mother’s joints.. I didn’t smoke it, but I have it in my desk drawer. I remembered that if I smoked it, I’d feel obligated to post here saying I did. I think I’ll sell it to one of my friends. 16 months ago
So far so good. I gave the rest of the weed I had to my aunt last night and I haven’t smoked today. :) 16 months ago
I wouldn’t really call myself a stoner, but I’ve smoked maybe 20 bowls and 15 joints. I’m 16 and tried weed for the first time when I was 15. These past months I’ve smoked a lot and I’ve wasted a lot of money on weed. I’m trying to save up for a car now, so I need to quit. We’ll see how this goes. 16 months ago
