I used to be able to smoke a lot of weed. But something has changed. Every time I smoke I get very bad social anxiety. I become mute, and can’t really hold a conversation without overthinking something in my head (ie. “Do they think I’m acting stupid?”). I was wondering if anyone had a solution/help?

      I always thought were helped me, for 9 years. Then I stopped due to financial reasons and then realized that it was a big problem. Been sober from it for a year. Great decision!

      I’ve smoked weed for about the past 4 years and really was convinced it was helpful. I recently decided to get sober and haven’t smoked for over a month now. The 6th and 7th day were the most difficult for me but apparently that is fairly normal. Every once in a while I’ll crave it just because I’m feeling a lot or it is a situation I would normally smoke in. Highly recommend taking up a new hobby that is really engaging for you (I learned to quilt 😂). It helped me create a new routine around the hobby to replace times when I used to smoke.

      I was right there with you and quitting smoking weed was the best decision I ever made, it made my anxiety and depression worse and it's just as addictive as any other drug in my experience.

        @JM8241 yeah I’ve had awful depression and anxiety since this started happening. I had a suspicion weed was making everything worse. I needed someone to confirm that so thanks for the quick response. I’m gonna try and quit smoking then! Do you have any tips on that?

          @Guido honestly just keep yourself busy, stay away from other substances because you will naturally try to replace it with something else
