>How long did it take before you felt like you were home free?
-------------

I've gone off and on it many times, depending on my circumstances. The drug substantially clears out of your body after about a week of abstaining, and by then I'm used to being without it. Your mileage may vary.

>I actually feel good as far as cravings go, but I'm afraid of getting bored
---------------

It's a lot harder to enjoy television without it, that's for sure. Just hafta read more instead :)

>I might use on occasion, but I'll approach that after enough time has passed. Do you think that's a bad idea?
----------------

I think that the best effect from weed is had by smoking every few days, tops. I'm sure you've noticed that the high is much more pronounced when you're not taking it every day. Maybe discipline yourself to using only on weekends. The problem for me is that if I have it around, I'll smoke it every day. If you're like that, perhaps you could just buy a small amount during long weekends or vacations. I think the worst part of smoking is the damage to your lungs, but smoking a little here and there isn't that bad.

> I take aniracetam, a so-called nootropic, which helps with my anxiety and mood. Not quite as good as the SSRIs, but it doesn't rob me of my humanity or sexuality. Sorry if that's too much information...
----------------

I agree that SSRIs rob you of part of your humanity. I feel emotionally sterilized on them, not to mention impotent :(

> Anyway, thanks for the advice. I'm curious what mental illness you have or had, and how you are doing? Thanks again!
--------------

I'm just now getting in to see a pdoc, so I have no diagnosis as yet, but my best guess so far is ADD with varying anxiety and depression. Who knows, though? Good luck with quitting (or cutting back)!
