      I would like to mention that weed DOES cause chemical and mental dependency. Constant use gets it into your fat cells and it acts like an extended release drug. It may seem harder to stop because of the duration and delayed onset of withdrawal. This will fade of course, it just takes extra time. Being aware of the symptoms and cravings along your personal timeline can help you identify the transient process of stopping and the chemical leaving your body. Knowing that these are withdrawal symptoms and not your “normal”, can help encourage you to know that they WILL get better without use, and therefore help you persevere through the uncomfortable and sometimes difficult readjustment. Good luck!

      There's a couple apps that have been recently made to track how much you smoke or what you smoke. Microsoding is what my bf suggested to me when I started to feel similar to you op. Taking tolerance breaks or switching products really helped me out

      Have you tried gummies/edibles? They're a bit easier to dose and in my experience are less of a high and more of a medicatied feel almost. Also second the herb joints, I love mint and mugwart before bed.

        @AugustPoppy i cant really get my hands on edibles, but i always prefer them over sm*king. though the herb joints seem nice! @Foodsnob

          @ProjectSys look into Space God Gummies. They are over the counter legal cannabis gummies. I have a friend who cuts them into 4’s and micro doses throughout the day. I smoke WAY too much and really need to cut down too. It’s f-ing hard, especially when you live with a stoner. Lol

          @ProjectSys if you're in the states look into 8D or other similar hemp derived compounds. I delta 8 which is legal in my state.

          @ProjectSys I haven’t tried herb joint but where is a good resource you can purchase these type of herbs?

      I had this issue when I first started smoking and I realized how much it helped with my depression. If you're like me & you get pre-rolls, I found it's best to break them apart, packing only 1/4 of the roll at a time. It's helped me slow down and see how much I'm actually smoking, sometimes knowing and physically seeing how much weed it is is completely different.

      I tried keeping track of how much I was smoking so that I could be more aware about it. It helped a bit and I notice that I was cutting back. If you’re someone that you like the physical part of smoking. I thought about making herb joints, like lavender and rose petals. Hope that helps!
