You're really doing well. Just one coffee and no joints. I felt so much better when I stopped smoking the weed.

My psychologist said whether it’s caffeine, cigarettes or cannabis, they were all stimulating my brain and causing me to ruminate, especially at night, so my sleep was affected.
I’m feeling so much calmer by abstaining, I’m going to bed three hours earlier and sleeping really well. 😁

The short answer is I don’t really know. I only stopped everything this week so I’ve a long way to go before I can pronounce I’m free of addiction. The FEAR of stopping was greater than any urge I’ve had since.

Thank you my friend. For once I’ll take a compliment as even though I’ve faced my fears and overcome Social Phobia and faced my fears and overcome my past, nothing has been as fearful as what I’m trying to do now.

Sometimes you got to go through the dark to get to the light,
It honestly takes courage to do what your doing and I'm not just saying it bro I mean it :)
