Thanks. I'm not sure if "bold and cunning" is my approach. I do have a lot to share. You are correct in saying it takes a large amount of time to overcome a habit. Especially after being a heavy toker for 29 years. I work in an office and I had to take off from work to do it. The withdrawls did not fare well in that enviroment. I would become a total bear and people thought I was on something when really I was off something. I would go back to getting stoned at night and be a sweetheart the next day. Sitting in an office only compounded the withdrawls for me so I took the summer off.

I can honestly say after two months, I got through the withdrawls. I don't think there is one cure all for addictions. Everyone is different. For me, the best way to lick the toughest withdrawls was hard excercise until my muscles would peter out. I would keep excercising until I fell asleep from exhaustion. Sometimes I think treatment centers should be workout centers.

eartHydromaxother. in my opinion, pot affects people in different ways and for many of us it is a physical addiction and does cause mental disorders. It was certainly a physical as well as mental addiction for me and it wasn't a simple mind over matter deal. You can't tell me otherwise. It does take much longer than other drugs to become a physical addiction.

It works sort of like alcoholism I think. Not all people drink and become alcoholics. THC, the way I understand it, coats the brain cells and that's what gets you high. The coating eventually neutralizes (resinates). Once the coating resinates, you come down and your brain cells ask for more. After continuous toking, THC eventually builds a thick resin coat on the brain cells causing loss of memory, slow reactions, and slurish speech. As the coating gets thicker, it takes more THC to get high. For some people, not all people, THC eventually kills natural endorphins which keep our mind sound. THC is an endorphin in its own way but it is not our natural endorphin. This is when the physical addiction sets in and the withdrawls become almost unbearable. Your natutral endorphins are not working. Your mind needs endorphins to be sound which THC satisfies - temporarily.

From what I experienced in the past two months, it is my belief that good excercise and a healthy diet with lots of fruits restores natural endorphins. Mine have not been fully restored but I can feel them slowly working once again. Well enough that I don't need to get high. In fact, I'm almost to the point, I dread the thought of getting high. I suspect it will be two years before my brain cells are completely rid of THC resin. I hope two months doesn't scare people. Again, I was on the stuff for 29 years.

Nope it's time for bed there LOL what was it like 1.39 am their, Endorphins.
I smoke weed everyday and I'm by no means a pot head or "stoner." I'm in a really good college right now working my ass off, and at the end of the day I love to hit the "stress reset" button with weed. It makes working longer and harder hours much more bearable. However, meditation is the ultimate state that we as humans can do, if done right. No substance can even come close.
This is an old thread but I wanted to bump this as I have compiled Biblical proof that Cannabis is a gift from GOD! Too many feel guilty or that it is wrong to use Cannabis. If Jesus used it and His disciples and the prophets of the Old Testament why is it so taboo today? I will never follow any direction in morality unless it is backed up by scripture. Cannabis is not only backed up but encouraged!

Remember this: "Do not get drunk on wine and committing debauchery, instead fill yourself with the Spirit!"
