Hi my name is Matt. I have been battling depression and panic attacks for the last 10 years. Right when I thought I was turning the corner this year my mind and body said no. I have been using cannabis and 2 beers every day to control my anxiety when I get off work but it’s temporary relief and I am beginning to wander if they are making my conditions worse. I smoke and drink very little just enough to take the edge off. I fear quitting because I feel like I am depended on it even if it is a very low amount. I really need to toughen up and quit for a month and see if I feel better or worse.

      Taper off slowly and find something to do as a hobby of some kind to keep the mind focused on the new whatever. The idle mind is when we start to think and bam the anixity starts and then the depression follows cause it's like we went nowhere and we're back in the same place and it is a horrible cycle that literally drains all our energy! Have to do things that are totally different than the norm! Different tools you can do different things! You can do anything you want to do! Don't limit yourself! Work out and go to places you would never go to and you will find different paths and some very cool people 😎 Peace ✌️
