Any schizophrenics out there who are trying to quit weed and/or smoking? Do the medications your doctor recommended interfere w your mental health symptoms?

      I’m currently quoting smoking for the sole reason of having to because of upcoming surgery. It’s been about a month and it still really sucks, and the withdrawal or whatever definitely messed with me- very irritable, anxious, depressed, etc. I just started Wellbutrin, which is an antidepressant that is also used to help quitting smoking so I hope that works. Yeah I’ve found quitting smoking very difficult but just keep in mind why you’re doing it. And, one day at a time… one second at a time, one minute at a time.

      I vape. Can’t do weed, makes me too paranoid. My meds work pretty good. I do get voices and anxiety though.

      i’m trying to quit smoking weed right now, but i’m on no medication and weed is my way of escaping reality. i run to weed when feeling suicidal or when i feel as if nothing is real. i run to weed when i’m angry, sad, etc. from my years of trying to quit, i can honestly say it really is addictive. I can’t see myself being sober because that would mean i’d have to face reality and i have such a fear of doing that, that it literally drives me insane. feel free to vent to me if you want, i know some different strands of weed that can help with different issues! if you’re interested in learning that.

      Sometimes I crave smoking. It’s tempting but I don’t. How do you deal with this illness? I have my ups and downs. Takes a lot of energy.

      The vaping withdrawals for me are not terrible, just this urge to take pulls even when they make me feel sick😢

      I can’t do THC. Makes me paranoid and my voices get bad. I vape instead of smoking.

      For me no, only sativa bothers me. Meds make me hypersomniac, weight gain (i already have body dysmorphic disorded), depression, increased SI. I stopped taking meds and still vape and smoke. I stick to indica and have gotten to the point where i can spot delusions/paranoia and just ignore it and carry on.

      If you can’t quit cigs you should try the faster acting gums or lozenges like from Lucy or try nicotine pouches like Zyns and try to switch to a safer alternative

      Sounds like it’s not helping you then maybe you shouldn’t do it, try something else. How bad are the withdrawals from caping (to be honest I would mot know)

      I’m struggling to quit vaping. It doesn’t even feel good, I just feel withdrawal.

      I’ve already quit weed but struggling with quitting cigs. I’ve tried different meds to help but none does the only thing that’s ever helped was having a reason to really want to stop. Medications only help so much. For some a lot, for some a little, for some not at all. It depends
