    How rude of you. That's not a very nice thing to say to a stranger. This is a place of healing, a place where we are meant to support one another. Our comments in this place should lift each other up, not put each other down. He offered you some constructive feedback for your own benefit, and you respond by insulting him.

    What a constructive piece of criticism. This comment says much more about you than it does about @Inqonyama . This comment shows that you're rude, that you respond to criticism with insults rather than civil conversation, that you are willing to call someone a 'sissy boy' when you don't even know them, and that you don't respect the safe, judgment-free, supportive nature of this community.

    (EDIT: Also, you ought to learn the difference between "your" and "you're")

    If you don't have time to read a comment that isn't even a page long, then that speaks volumes of your patience and humility. What's going on in your life? Where's the anger coming from, man? Why are you putting other people down?

    I would advise you to do the same. If you think it's okay to insult a random stranger, then I think you have much to learn.

    The backhanded apology isn't helping your case. It just makes you look like you have nothing constructive left to say.

    Again, I'll ask: where's the anger coming from, man? Why are you putting people down instead of lifting them up? We're all in this together, and we're here to support one another. Don't you agree with that?

    Also, I think that sensitivity goes a long way on this forum. This is a forum for recovering addicts, and addiction is a very sensitive subject. A lack of sensitivity is disrespectful. If you think it's okay to be rude towards people who came here for help (and, I should add, I think calling people 'pussies' and 'sissy boys' crosses the line from tough-love into flat out rudeness), then I think you have a lot to learn.

    So I've been having crazy vivid dreams lately since I've stop smoking and some of them are sexual and I'll wake up rock hard. It's like damn, I really gotta have self control right away out of bed. My body hasn't had any orgasms for this long probably since my early teens! Definitely a mind shift but staying on course. I was thinking about going a year without orgasms, already 49 days in! I got this!

    Detox yourself from all of it.

  6. I’ve read cbd and thc has a synergetic affect. They are two different compounds of the marijuana plant each have their own benefits. I’d say try getting weed that has a 20:1 cbd:thc ratio. You barely feel the high but it’s there, if you want a little more high get a smaller ratio. Also, keep it to the weekends, Friday to Sunday only.

    I'm on my 90th day of no pmo and I'm feeling great! I also been using cbd less and less now. I never imagined that being sober would feel so good, I always wanted to be high and escape either with cannabis or pmo. Trying to focus on a better future for myself.

    I had one friend who had some success with drinking a ridiculous amount of cranberry juice, but he might have just been saying that to sound cool.

    Overall, my advice I'd offer you is: If you don't get this job because you fail the drug test, don't worry about it. There are plenty of other jobs out there that don't drug test you, and the drug test won't count against you in future employment opportunities, either. There is probably a job out there comparable to the one you are applying for that does not require drug tests.

    If there's really no other choice, and you must have this particular job, then I just recommend you stop smoking weed. It's really the only surefire way to keep it out of your system. It's kind of silly that there are still jobs that drug test in this day and age (unless it's a job where other people's safety depends on your reflexes or fine motor skills). It's such an impersonal, outdated idea in my opinion.

    With all the different strains out there, its relatively easy to get a custom weed for something. I see it as a tool. I have a pen that is more a body buzz, and flower for more of a mental buzz. I use these to my advantage. When I want to do some deep stretching I use the one, take a shower do some yoga etc. When I want to play my guitar and write a little, the other helps with that. When I have shit to do, I dont smoke, and that decision is pretty cut and dry. Im a pretty cheap date as it is, so its not a big deal to abstain. My days of getting ripped and watching the simpsons for a couple hours are long gone.
    My personal philosophy is that everything is useful for something or another. If I cannot use it to my benefit, I cut it loose. For me weed is a utility. I can do and do do everything without it, so its not difficult for me to go without.
    When the kids are asleep, wife is watching Netflix and the dogs have been let out, its friday night and I can set aside a little time to catch a buzz and play some guitar, its great.
    I have a handle on all the external things that have given me an issue in my life. Now the last thing is porn. Thats why Im here. I am working on that and gonna keep trying untill I have a comfortable mastery over my impulse to watch. I know that I am strong enough to get it done. Ive put all else under my thumb and now I will do the same for PMO. Im pleased with my recovery and will keep trying untill its not an issue.
    I will keep trying, and I will get better.

  10. Personally think it’s a bad addiction to have. I don’t think you should be replacing it with anything. Your choice.

    CBD is not addictive at all, it is not THC it help you to sleep better, helps with appetite and most importantly it wont get you high. Also if you are afraid of drug testing you shouldn't be, because CBD won't even show in your drug test.

    People judge me for smoking weed meanwhile they are scrolling their facebook feed with their mouth open in the trance. Weed is the thinking man's drug.

    FYI, it wasn't a bad decision, a friend of mine did the same, she smoked a vape. For the first everything was normal, she had a great mood, but after some time she wanted to smoke again. To quite smoking, previously you need to detox your body naturally, to make weed out of your blood. Maybe, this web-resource could help you in this process. Good luck)

  15. I know I can't quit PMO if I don't also quit weed. For me, those addictions now go hand in hand.

    I quit PM, weed, coffee and cigarette on the same day 2 months ago. I feel much better overall. I take 3 drops of 35% CBD oil twice a day under my tongue. I don't know if it does anything but I'll keep using them as I overall feel much less anxious and stressed out (some reseaech shows it helps reduce blood pressure, which mine was (is?) a bit high).

    I tried to smoke CBD instead of real weed. But it's so frustrating to roll a huge joint because your brain thinks you're going to get so stoned, when in facr you only get relaxed for 5 minutes. It only makes you want to go back to weed. So I would advise against smoking or vaping CBD.

    I once sat on a bus in Manchester next to an elderly West Indian gentleman who was talking about all the youth smoking cannabis all the time. He said he just couldn't understand it. The only reason he would ever smoke it was when he wanted to have sex! Definitely a bit of an aphrodisiac.

    I'm joking dude, you are free to smoke anything you like.
    But yes, to me drugs are bad. Not all drugs but the common drugs that people know as drugs. You know the drugs that people think when they hear the word drugs? Those drugs.
