    Tommorow it is 3th month since i stop smoking weed... I still get urges, expecially when friends smoke it near me, but it was very easy not to do it, no mather that i smoke it every 2 day for 1 year... I will probaly smoke it again, but not before July...

    I also wasnt drunk for almost 2 months....:)
  2. You're doing really wonderful!!!!
    I'm glad you felt proud enough to post - you should be!
    (and hey - you can't kick all your habits at once, ok?)

    Well yeah... I dont see nothing wrong with smoking pot occasionally, but i am afraid that once i will smoke it again, i will "fall in" and start smoking it again every 2 day...
  4. Well, sometimes we think we can handle "just a bit" of something - the truth is, some can, but most can't (most especially when it regards addiction!). Even when we think we know ourselves really well. I quit drinking several months back, and I suppose that I *might* be able to have one drink once in a while - but I know I have an addictive personality (which can rationalize just about anything), and I never want to fall into that horrible trap again.

    So - it's ultimately up to you...No one can decide for you... but the "safest" thing (especially since you're already aware/afraid of falling in again yourself - which is quite realistic/possible) would be to stay away...don't you think?

    Thanks for advice... I am very addictive too:)
  6. A smile could mean you really read what 'silly me' wrote...so, if you can 'make peace' with your realization/awareness/and decision - feel good/better about it, that, to me, is at least half the battle. We don't all have or get to have that "advantage" (which I personally think it is)

    "Temptation" will usually comes all on it's own...but addiction is a moment to moment and day by day thingy... I like to call it "remission" :smile:

    Thats great.
    I smoke weed in wednesday... after almost 3,5 months:(
    All that for nothing... But on one side i am happy that i did it cause i realized that weed has impact on my depression plus i realized how unquality life i have (i didnt thought that before depression)

    I will never smoke weed again... I will simply erase out of my head what happened in wednesday...
    Well 3,5 months without smoking weed except only once doesnt sound so bad, right?:)

    One more question: Is depression caused by weed treated different than "normal" depression?

    Congrats on being off it for so long. Being off something you have depended on is hard, its gotta be difficult. Good job on being stronger than most. :smile:

    4,5 months without weed. Well, i smoked it just once:)
    I dont have urges at all... beside, it would give me bad anxiety again...
  11. You're BACK!!!!!!!! :biggrin:

    You haven't been here for some time - and yeah - I do wonder where you disappear to!

    I'm glad for you - your 'announcement' - but much more, I'm glad that YOU are glad in announcing it. This is your own personal triumph, and I'm happy to celebrate it with you :biggrin:

    Sometimes we need to relapse occassionally to re-learn why we had to quit.

    I've been opiate clean for almost 5 years, in that its never again become a problem, but I've relapsed about once a year. I consider myself clean because after each time I immediately stopped again. I know that most wouldn't consider that clean.

    I've alos been on methadone for those 5 years, after close to 15 years of abusing. Now I'm within a month or so of tapering off it, and feel good about it.

    My doc has always been pot, but it never got out of hand, now in my early 50's I never buy and don't always smoke when offered. But I have lots of people who were 'chronic' who stopped as they got older because of the paranoia they suffered.
