My postman is obviously a stoner, just the way he carries the back all slung back on his shoulder gives it away but he also looks like Wayne (or Garth I can't remember which one is which). I keep thinking I should offer him a bowl of the good shit but he delivers so much weed to me I think I'd be putting him in a bad position.
if you think this post is about you it already is.
and if that last line made you back off from owning then i’m talking to you especially. the basis of addiction is denial just ask your friend’s of bill’s. and make sure you cut them off before you wind up at a meeting, we’ll have none of that here but it is time for you to take a break to clean up and maybe get a little perspective on your usage from an unstoned mind. then perhaps get really stoned and verify you results.
what we’re trying to do here is break the loop of needing to get stoned to maintain. being un-stoned needs to be something you enjoy too. and if you’re always stoned then being un-stoned can often be as novel and trippy as being stoned used to be.
1 in the beginning this all may take a little internal cajoling: think about how much more stoned you are going to be when your system clears out all the cannabanoid residue. like a clean bong, ahhhh. follow the regime below and you’ll prove this right away, it will be the only mantra you need to stay strong.
2 regulate intake, this is much easier to do with edibles, particularly thc caps and hash. your eating routine will have to be regulated around the edibles, they work faster on an empty stomach and are strongest if you eat less and exercise more - if this is beginning to sound like a cure all and the key to a long and healthy life then so be it.
3 when you badly want (need??) to smoke substitute w/ non thc compulsions like: exercise, especially fun stuff rather than disciplined listen to favorite music repeatedly have sex/masterbate watch a video play a game shop
day 1 - jump into the baby pool cut thc intake to 50% of starting point use edibles for at least 1/2 of your intake
day 2 drink lots of water from now on cut thc intake to 40% of starting point use edibles for at least 2/3 of your intake
day 3 start ramping up the excecise cut thc intake to 30% of starting point use edibles for all of your intake going forward
day 4 - 6 - thc scrubbing cut another small fraction off your thc intake each day, it feels like you’re winning because you are. note the exercise resurfaces the old thc, increase it to “scrub the bong” into your bloodstream.
day 7 - warm turkey no thc intake distracting fun time
day 8 - party on! indulge in 25% of original intake - this will be more than enough, i promise.
day 9 - you the boss no thc intake you know the drill now, exercise and entertain your way into feeling good
day 10 - 30 decrease thc dose, 15% of your original amount is easy to sustain take every 3rd day off from thc
day 30+ take off consecutive days each week now that you are a healthy partaker in control of your own destiny. congratulations.
This is such sound advice, the cutting down intake prior to stopping helped immensely. Back to a lower tolerance saves money and makes smoking actually work again. I suffer bad withdrawal usually but with this method and some will power it isn't half as bad. Cheers
This is great but the thing is there's some of us that need something for the pain. Not the pain of quitting cannabis but the pain of living without it. I got hurt many years ago, tried a lot of things since then and cannabis has been the best answer without a doubt.
I agree with your comment, but I find that anything I use for pain loses its effectiveness over time. Cannabis is best in that I don't get any negative side effects, and it does continue to work well for a good month or so. I also don't have to fear drug interactions like when I'm relying on prescribed narcotics.
The prescription narcotics typically only do a good job on the pain for about 3 days. A new patch is still a bit helpful for a couple of weeks. But all my pain related prescriptions cause side effects varying from mild, to migraines, and serious nausea, going on, and coming off them.
The part that really chaps my ass is the mindset of so many doctors that won't even talk about using cannabis. They either push more narcotics, or tell me there's nothing else they can do, I just have to deal with it. I desperately wish I could make them feel what I do for just a few days, maybe they'd be more understanding.
This is awesome, thanks for it. Can I add 1 thing, it's to the compulsion fighting part. If you're having an overwhelming feeling to partake then just change your environment, get out of the room youre in, walk away from where you are, get in or out if the car. This is one of the easiest and most reliable tricks for clearing your head.
There is no doubt that government control of medicine stifles innovation and that costs lives. There is also no doubt that government regulation of medicine prevents fraud of the most deadly kind and that saves lives, it should also be stated that no viable replacement for this regulation has emerged yet.
But I don’t think this is even the “liberties” issue here. Its simply a fact that most people want collectivized medicine, usually from the government and if not from an insurance company. The “free” market for medicine, with people making their own decisions gets you right back to socialized medicine because that's where freedom leads us.
The government is not the villian here just the sidekick, the medical establishment uses it and patients to work it's wicked will. Look at what they did to one of their own own that dared to insult them about washing hands for surgery, sent him to a nut house and killed him 2 weeks later.
