High THC Cannabis Withdrawal
Time to relocate to a country in Asia with harsh rules on drugs. My company has asked me to take a drug test in the destination country. So here I am, withdrawing from Marijuana.
I live in Spain, where Marijuana use is decriminalised and tolerated by authorities. I started smoking when I was 16 years old with once a week and now for the last 21 years I have been smoking continously. Last 10 years I smoked 3-4 grams a day thanks to my liberal environment. Cannabis in Spain is quite potent especially for the last 7-8 years with professional growers using scientific methods.
1st day: So far I am ok. I really do not have any cravings at all. My body feels the difference but not strong. I am trying to sleep and yes I could not sleep. I read a book. 5 am I fall a sleep. Wake up 8 am naturally.
2nd day: no cravings, my neighbor is smoking on the balcony. For a second I wanted to take one breath but kept myself. My wife and friends say I became a bit aggressive. My temper is high and when driving I found myself aggressive as well.
My temper is high and when driving I found myself aggressive as well.
I want to smoke but not like a craving. I could sleep at 4 am and again woke up at 8.30 naturally.
3rd day: I am a bit sleepless and I had a stupid argument with one of my colleagues in the office for a stupid reason. I apologized later on. I have headache today but I do not know the cause, maybe sleep deprivation. Again sleeping is a problem. Slept at 3 am. Woke up at 9.30 naturally.
4th day: my wife says I am in negative mood. I am still aggressive. I started smoking tobacco heavily. (In Europe we still smoke cigarettes a lot.) No craving at all. Sleeping at 3 am and woke up at 10 am. Still aggressive, but now I realized myself so I spent the day quietly with alcohol bang I fall a sleep at 10pm and woke up at 10am.
5th day: I don't feel tired but I have a headache on and off. I took a drug test. Cut off 50. I failed the test.
10th day: my headaches are lessened. Took one more drug test. Cut off 50. Failed again. I used my noon pee. Third in the day. Did not flushed my system.
15th day: No headaches, no craving, my energy is building up. Sex is not as fun as with weed :(. Took my third drug test. I have a faint line. Again third pee at noon. No flushing.
20th day: biggest problem is still sex. Ejaculations are less fun. Took a new test cut off 15. Third pee of the day and failed.
25th day: I tested myself again with 15 cut off and there is a faint line.
1 month: succeeded the test with 15 ml. And clean now. Still sex is my biggest concern but getting better.
In this period, I have not done any sports, kept eating regularly.
Footnote: I am still looking forward to my first holiday in Europe or travelling to Cambodia for a weekend. I quit weed out of necessity and my mind still wants to smoke. I found quitting tobacco is 1000 times more harsh then quitting weed. Good thing: my wife is very happy, she never believed I could stop.
