      yes, definitely. as alexjjj mentions, i find it helps with managing negative thoughts and mania as well as sleep and indigestion i experience from depression. i do notice that over time it makes my anxiety worse, though. i’m starting bipolar meds soon so i’m hoping that will help me become less dependent on weed since i also feel stuck

      Oh yeah same here !! I took a break last month and then went back to smoking and my dependency was weaned off a little bit. In the break I found other things to help myself!! Just taking a break of a week or 2 at first will slowly help. I hope this helps you!

      yup! it helps me forget the negative thoughts and control the mania. i’ve been thinking about quitting but i think it is helping me more that not at this point in my life. sometimes it’s upsetting that i have to depend on it but if it helps it helps.

      I absolutely do. I don't know how to fix it and that drives me bonkers. Just know you're not alone in it, and hopefully someone else can give us helpful advice.
