    I just wanted to say one or two things that I've been realizing about the anxiety I thought I used to have because I smoked pot vs the real issue. I would find myself discussing issues of confidence and fear in my head RELENTLESSLY when I smoked. It was a daily occurrence, smoke, stress, PMO. I will tell you that the PMO only ever made things much, much worse. I decided to quit smoking pot and said "this will alleviate the social anxiety I have and the lack of self confidence I show." It didn't. I continued to struggle on a day to day basis with feelings of inadequacy. I racked my brain for reasons, I'm young, have a career, have a happy family but I still feel unresolved then I realized "maybe the addiction wasn't to smoking pot but to PMO." Maybe the pot made the anxiety I had worse because of my real addiction that I refused to come to terms with, PMO. If you are hiding behind some sort of substance just know that you can give it up and clarity will show. I am without PMO for 13 days and have had difficulties and urges but they're more stressful than anything. Let's fight the good ya'll.

    Hey mate. Same here. But definitely weed makes you more anxious by itself. With PMO the anxiety is even worse. I experienced the very same thing that you shared here. I realized that i had to quit both, weed and PMO. This is the best decision i ever made.
