I am not sure

Recently I have hit a dead end with my psyciatrist and therapist. the psych thinks I am masking my actions and pretending to get drugs from what I can tell, while the therapist is telling me to quit smoking weed,

If you aren't familiar, I am a big coke/crack/heroin/anything really type of guy and smoking weed keeps me off the other stuff.

They will not treat me unless I go to a outpatient program for weed and other substances. Am not using drugs everyday and they know this.

I smoke 47g and about 14g of extracts a week with rso on top. It has kept me off my bad crack and h habit.

I want to die and was recently granted disability for a sad thing and not sure.


this doesnt make sense but i will edit and fix

i cant think right now so upset and bewildered

If you really wanna get sober do it.
Lying to them makes no difference in their lives.

Be honest with yourself.

Weed doesn't keep you sober. It's likely they're seeing a truth that you are not.

Why not give it a try?

You can always go back to smoking weed if being 100% sober doesnt work for you.

But it can keep you away from shit that can destroy your life. I know juicers who haven't touched a drop in years yet smoke pot regularly. And just because you couldn't, or can't, handle it without giving in to your other demons doesn't mean it can't work for others.

Except it seems like it's not working for him...

Did you miss the part where he says he's smoking 7g of weed and 2g extracts a day plus meds from his psychiatrist? No responible dr would want to prescribe on top of that much. If you told your dr you were drinking 20 cups of coffee a day they wouldn't prescribe either.

I don't smoke weed anymore because it made me sluggish and unmotivated
It's not for everyone.
It doesn't work for everyone the same way.

Lots of people quit smoking weed for the same reason. They didn't enjoy it anymore and it put them to sleep. They quit on the spot. No withdrawals. No nothing. Imagine saying that about alcohol or opiates.

I did say "you" not him so I was talking in general terms. But he did say it has kept him off H and crack so it worked how he wanted it to work. Whether it helps him in getting well is another topic.

He said it kept him off his bad h and crack habit and he doesn't use drugs every day.

Do I need to translate?

The don't even let you have caffeine in rehab so if he wants weed he's fucked here.
Should go for broke and just get a clear head. What's to lose?

I'm just going to say one last thing here.

For anyone who wants to say weed is good for an addict.

The thing about addicts is they can't moderat shit. Therefor weed is probably not a good substitute for anything. In the long run.

It might work for you but it won't work for someone who has an addictive personality.

An addicts problem is they can't face life in life's terms.

So man up and get fucking sober already.

And have the life you deserve

I have close friends who've battled through alcohol and heroin addiction who smoke weed on the regular now, but it was well after they had their last drink and hit..and i've heard people tell me they used marijuana to help ween themselves of other drugs, but if this dude is still doing crack and heroin, just not daily, then he's not really doingnhimself a huge favor...

I thought it was poor grammar when he said he wasn't using drugs everyday and he meant every day he doesn't use drugs.

In random he said he dropped off some hard for his homeless friend this week...

Tomatoe, obviously weed hasn't kept you off other drugs, maybe you feel that it's helped you cut back, but perhaps it's time to try something new?

When I myself used weed. Because I can't face life at alll. I found myself was smoking it to escape reality. Addicts use any method they can to escape. This is why clearing your head of all stimulants is the only way. I smoked from the time I opened my eyes until I closed them. Couldn't face the world with a clear head.
Addicts need to learn to live all over again. It's hard. I think about smoking an joint every now and again but I know I'd just over do it. Just like booze, I have no self control anything. Like coffee and cigarettes my main addiction right now.

Just a thought.
But I'm not a health professional so meh

You think youre gonna try quitting the smokes again sometime turm?

Ive been at cancer hospitals a lot with my dad lately, and the people with lung cancer.... holy shit.. it just looks so so so so horrible...

You definitely dont want to do that to yourself. Or more importantly to your kids.

My experience was, after about a year or so of not smoking, they taste like absolute shit if you try again and smell horrible and makes you feel shitty. Your brain rewires itself. The cravings are still there, but they just taste and smell like ass so it's much easier.

I need to get some help I think.
It's aging me really fast too
