I quit weed for 2 months to clear my head. Thinking about starting back.
So here's my dilema. I don't think there's anything wrong with smoking the weeds. However, I began to get very paranoid so I stopped. Now I have a job that just exhausts the shit out of me and I want to be able to come home and smoke a bowl.

There's not a lot of things to do while sober that can just make all the pain in my feet/back/mind from work go away. Weed is one of them.

I drink beer, but it does far more harm than marijuana does so I'm sitting here wondering why the hell I'm drinking it when I can smoke natural herbs and have a better calming, pain relieving, relaxing feeling?

However, I like being clear headed from not smoking as well. It's refreshing after an intense 2 years of being high most of the time.

shit... I am trying to quit now so I can get a job. Every fucking shitty ass job has a drug test now before hire and it sucks so bad cause they have no right to know what I do in my own time.

you're right about alcohol... it is worse. it just makes me sick anymore.

being sober is hell man. everything feels "plastic" and fake and I have no motivation or inspiration to do anything.

light up a bowl and the world becomes this magical place where I can do anything.

stupid fucking society.

EDIT: I reread this post.

I agree only to the extent that it makes me think I'm having epiphany's that sometimes make no sense when sober. It's never permanent though. I've never been in any danger or fucked up my brain because that just doesn't happen.

I do however think that nonstop usage over a long period can make you forget what being sober is and it becomes easier to believe all the ridiculous things you come up with while high that normally you'd be like, "oh wait, that's just me being high."

I feel like in moderation it's not a problem. Your brain returns to normal after you stop for a while. I feel like it really is very healing if you do it on occasion.

The problems arise when it's all day every day. I've been there and I studied the effects it had on me. I no longer see that as necessary or something that I want to do.

Re: I quit weed for 2 months to clear my head. Thinking about starting back.
Simple:

Save your high for the END of the day. Get high once a day only, but only after everything's done. Smoking more than once a day = wasted bud (& braincells)

If you can get your tolerance down to one high a day you'll be amazed how far your sack will go & how fast you bounce back the next morning.

Your back... flip your matress.

Your back, feet, & knees... get 2 pairs of nike airs. One for work, the other for life. Walking on air literally saves your joints & will extended your life & body.

Some of life's best secrets are right out in the open. Air souls are just one of them.

6 months, friend.

That's the MINIMUM it takes for your brain to go back to whence it originally came.

12 months is better.

If you throw in the towel now, you will never know what "normal" brain function is as an adult.

Also keep in mind that you might have to do some painful emotional growth catching-up for a couple of years.

You stunted your intellectual and emotional growth for all the time you were smoking weed.

(I worked for a neurological research think tank in college. They happened to be doing work in this area. All the fMRI's showed that it takes 6-12 months to physiologically recover from even "casual" drug addiction, while most recovery programs only last a few weeks. Hence the enormous relapse rate.)

The toughest period for most recovering folks is dealing with reality after having evaded it for so long.

Are you smoking top grade?

If you're smoking commercial or less than top grade, switch.

Marijuana has helped me deal with anxiety and public speaking like nothing else. It also has enhanced my ability to close the deal, when I am more relaxed and happy this shows and according to my research, people find me much more personable and believe what I say much more often while I am high.

I smoke 20-30% THC sativa strains only.

What reality am I evading, sir?

It is you who is evading the reality that there are extremely successful individuals that enhance their lives with THC, while you're stuck in the realm of 1930's fear mongering.

This was part of the reason I quit. I lived in Seattle before and after it became legal. Smoking medical every day for something like 6-8 months. I moved back to the east coast and nothing comes even close to that stuff. The stuff that does is still inferior and costs 3 times as much. I became all but immune to the stuff in my price range here.

That plus the paranoia I was getting, just wasn't worth it.

This, you only need a hit to get high anything more and your wasting it. There are cannabinoids in pot that help our endocannabinoid system in our bodies. The endocannabinoid system helps to kill cancer cells. We have cannabinoid receptors in our brains that are dormant until our body is introduced to cannabinoids from pot... Intresting. Your whole body benefits from the endocannabinoid system.

Cannabinoid receptor type 1

Endocannabinoid system
[link to en.wikipedia.org]
^Besides its effect on memory, witch the two studies for memory are in contrast to each other anyways, there are a lot of benefits associated with the endocannabinoid system.

Cannabis is not a drug, its only a drug to law enforcement and those who think it is. Its a plant that comes from the ground that doesn't have any harmful chemicals associated with it, nor is it addictive or destructive to your brain. Its all natural unless you add stuff to it when your growing it to help it grow, but we do this to all our vegetables and other plants we grow too, so it cant be all that bad to do with pot to, if we do it to our food.. Pot is not like meth, coke, crack, heroin , xanax, asprine, cigarettes, beer, or lsd, it is safer than all the safeness of those drugs combined. It is natural, without cancer causing, brain impairing, addictive chemicals added to it like everything else in out society. Cannabis does not deserve all the negativity that surrounds it. When will society relize that pot can replace a lot of things we use in our society, TPTB know this and that is why pot is in the situation it is in. Because of all the major industries that could be replaced by hemp, pot will continue to be scrutinized the same way it always has been.

What?? You dont have a clue, the rehab place kinda does.. Pot is the hardest to heal at a rehab place because people arn't actually addicted to it! They try to treat an addiction that isnt there.. Also most the people in rehab 4 pot are there because of court and not because they have a problem with it.. Its easier to go to rehab over a pot charge than to get put on probation or go to jail. Also that rehab place must not deal with crack heads, because those peoples minds are really "warped". A crack head is going to be harder to deal with than a pot head.
