How to stop smoking WEED?

Posted by Cottonwool on July 20, 2004, at 11:09:29

I just began taking Effexor XR for my GAD yesterday and I have yet to see if it will work or not - but I have a question...

I have smoked pot for about a year and a half now and I never really thought it was a problem for me. I know people can go back and forth all day about whether it helps or hurts - but that has nothing to do with my problem.

I am trying to take every step I can within my own control to make sure my life is going in the right direction. Just a couple weeks ago I came to work smelling of weed, and got written up for me! I was shocked! I guess I failed to remember that smoking week day in and day out is NOT a reality for other people. It took a while for it to soak in that as much as I consider weed one of my favorite activities, it has a serious potential to burn bridges that I've worked VERY hard to build.

My fiance and I had a financial dry spell the last couple of weeks (which isn't saying much - we're ALWAYS in a finacial dry spell, this was just worse than usual) and I had no choice but to stop smoking weed, and cigarettes - but we just ended up binge drinking instead! It feels like to me that I can't just give it all up! If I can't have one thing, I have to have another. Transference - right?

I'm sick of feeling like if I don't have these things my life will just END! I tried to sit down and talk with my fiance about wanting to stop, and he is supportive, but I think he feels like that means I want HIM to stop - and I dont! Now I just feel guilty - and he feels guilty because as long as it's around I'm just not going to make myself stop!

HOW DO I STOP?!?!?!
