Stoners Quit Weed For A Week

August 22, 2019


– I may drink more, who knows? We’re drinking! (upbeat music) But I’ve been consistently smoking weed for like a decade. – Pretty much daily
for about 10 ten years. – So almost 16 years. – I think weed is great. I think weed does such a
diverse array of things for different people. – I started smoking strictly
for medical reasons, but it definitely became recreational. – It’s just a way to
unwind and decompress, because it’s just so
a part of my lifestyle that sometimes I let it
inhibit me from doing stuff. – I mean, as I’ve gotten older, it’s become more medicinal. It really has helped my shoulder pain, my ankle pain, my knee pain. – So I actually started smoking weed about two years after I was
diagnosed with fibromyalgia. They had given me muscle
relaxers to take every night. I would not remember conversations
I had with my husband. I would pass out. It was just kind of more
than I bargained for. – And I want to see maybe if
I can, at the end of this, maybe continue to stop smoking, or just do it maybe once
a week or twice a week, but not every single day,
multiple times a day. – I mean, I think my
biggest fear for the week is that I will actually stop functioning. Oh, look, there’s weed
on my shirt. (laughs) – So this five hours in, and
I’m already craving weed. (laughter) But I’m smoking instead. – All right, so I’m about
give my roommate all my stuff. (Roommate calls from a distance) Yeah, man. Can you take this and hide it for me? I’m gonna turn around,
I don’t wanna see it. I don’t wanna find it, ever,
or at least for a week. No, don’t throw it in the trash! – Kinda runnin’ out of things
to distract myself with. I mean, I’m vlogging, but,
then, no, I wanna smoke pot. I don’t feel better yet. I don’t feel worse yet. Just feel like I really,
really wanna smoke. – Typical night watching the Real
Housewives of Beverly Hills with my roommates. But this week is different
’cause I’m weed-less – I wanna burrito! – I want weed! – I had rough day at work, just
stressed, stressed at work. And all I wanted to do is smoke. – My sleep is fucked. And my armpits are sore. So everything kinda hurts. Trying out some different
pain control methods. – I’m actually being more social ’cause I’m trying not to think about how tense I am without
weed, so that’s good. Not smoking. So instead, we’re drinking! The night is continuing,
because I’m not gonna race home to smoke weed. But instead we’re going to go to the bowling alley!
– Hey! – I’m feeling a lot more vigorous. I’m feeling a lot more energetic. – I’m crying, like
weeping a lot this week. And I think that’s a good thing. Think that I’ve numbed myself out for probably a little too long. It’s really uncomfortable,
but crying feels good. It like alleviates the
discomfort a little bit. Okay, I’m gonna go reorganize
all my drawers now. Keeping busy. (laughs) – Yeah, I’ve just been noticing
that I’m a lot more active. Did a little bit of writing
this weekend, which was nice. I’m also realizing that times where I think
I need to smoke weed, I actually don’t always need it. – All right, so it’s
about day five or six now. And, to be honest, I’m
not really affected. I don’t crave it. I’m not like dying to want to smoke. But I’ve been waking up
earlier and exercising and feeling healthier. I don’t know, maybe this is something that I should consider going forward. (gentle music) – So my week without
weed was enlightening. – As much as I love weed,
and I think it’s a great, fun thing to do, this really made me take a hard look at myself. – The first few days, I
was kind of like, ehh! Aagh! Bleh! Why did I decide to do this? – I kinda like got over the
itch in the first few days. The worst part was just that
I couldn’t sleep very well. – This experiment was a
great way for me to reset. – So moving forward, I really
think I’m actually gonna stop for now. Will I stop forever? Who knows. But right now, I’m feeling really good and I wanna continue this trend. – I don’t need to be as reliant on weed as I think I am. – People start smoking to self-medicate. People start smoking because
it helps with physical pain. There’s not one reason to smoke, and so there’s not one
reason to quit smoking or to keeps smoking. – Smoke weed, enjoy it,
enjoy life, life’s too short. But at some point you
gotta look at yourself and realize, hey, am I hurting myself more than helping myself? I’ve been smoking for over 15 years now, and I think it’s time that
I take a look at myself and what’s best for me. – There’s a balance, I
mean, it’s a medicine. And it can help you in a lot of ways. But I think, like any
medicine, there’s a point at which it stops being helpful. – I found out this week
I don’t really need weed. But, yes, I think I am, after work today, probably gonna go home and
smoke, and eat a pizza, because that’s a great combo. (quirky music)

    Smoked weed multiple times daily for 11 years straight, then I quit completely on the day after Christmas 3 years ago. I rarely drink, and I haven't smoked since then, all on my own. If you're trying to quit, I am just here to tell you it's possible

    Weed makes you feel great but keeps you from facing real life problems. I’d love to smoke weed all day, every day but it does keep you from moving forward with your life if you do it too often.

    Did you know when you smoke weed your spirit leaves your body, the spirit bounces off the walls. This is why you feel the high feeling. When people don’t have weed they get mad or upset because the demons are in your body. This blind man who was on bed rest knowed that my aunt was high and told her he sees her spirit on the walls. (You can’t say “well he smells weed” because she took edibles

    It’s more psychological but weed is not addictive because there are no physical side effects like nicotine, heavy drugs (heroin, coke etc.) or drinking those become physical but weed is more mental like a lot of people can take a break and have very small or no side effects from not smoking weed while nicotine, alcohol and heavy drugs are physical so when you stop it’s way more difficult then weed would be that’s why it’s called “withdrawal” but weed is not that severe

    Wow these people are fucked. I've smoked for a good 3 or 4 years, and daily for a little over a year, and am taking a tolerance break. One week in and I've seen no negative withdrawal effects. I sleep fine, not cranky, I'm a little bored at times, that's about it. I've also seen no positive effects, such as increase in motivation. These people just let weed run their lives, which is unhealthy with anything. All I've learned from not smoking weed for a week is that it makes zero difference, it's just a fun thing to do lol.

    You can’t get physically addicted to weed the same way you can alcohol or cigarettes but there is something called cannabis use disorder. It can also be viewed as a dependency on weed. And if you are a frequent user you can develop a tolerance to the meaning you’ll have to have more to get a high. People with cannons use disorder can also have physical withdrawal symptoms, including anxiety, restlessness, depression, irritability, and disturbed sleep. However you can’t die from withdrawal. Cannabis use disorder is most common in teenagers that start using before 21 because they’re brain isn’t fully developed but if you’re over 21 and you’re just doing it occasionally there’s a very small risk of developing it.

    Imagine my surprise from all the stoners trying to Cope in the comments.
    "I've smoke weed for x years"
    "I feel like I could quit any time"
    Just admit that you've formed a habit. Smoking weed isn't looked down on anymore. This isn't the sixties. It won't make you crazy or gay or make you want to try crack cocaine. That being said, if you have the habit of smoking every day, it's a problem. You need to discipline yourself. The only excuse is if you have a medical condition. Stop lying to yourself and give it a break for a while. Do something that doesn't involve eating pizza and playing video games. Read a book. Learn a new hobby. Exercise. Improve on your life. It's not hard, you just have to motivate yourself. You can be addicted to literally anything. Weed is no exclusion.
