How I Quit Smoking Pot: Day 17 Ongoing Challenges and Higher Expectations

Today is Day 17 in my personal quest to stop smoking marijuana, after smoking almost daily for 30+ years. The past couple of days I have been suffering from the flu which is never fun, but I seem to be recovering – and regardless of how sick, tired and depressed I have been – I have not even come close to reaching for a pipe. In fact, I have more than ZERO desire to use any pot at all.

It’s been suggested to me that I should be smoking if I’m in that much pain, or that I could be ingesting MMJ in brownies or using tinctures, etc. At this point I’m really not interested in those options either – I’m just really striving toward optimal health, want to finally get my brain clear and continue on to a better life that I know I was meant to lead.

The past couple of days have been tough in a lot of ways, but at the same time I’m trying to look at everything as positives. After all, I’ve always said that things happen for a reason and that they always work out exactly like they are supposed to. I need to start living that statement – walking the talk.

I’m just tired of living like less than a human and as I get clearer, I am seeing that I am finally actually and really starting to expect more from myself and from life. I fully believe that expectations have a great deal with how one lives. In the past I haven’t expected much, so I really haven’t had much. Now I am expecting A LOT more and am positive that my life will continue to reflect positive change in a lot of ways.

Thank you for visiting – I appreciate your time and interest. It would be great if you would take a minute to leave a comment.


How I Quit Smoking Pot: Day 13 – Challenges Are Good and I’m Happy to Have Them

Yesterday was a very challenging day and I felt like I was seriously being tested. The good news is that I passed that test and that I have realized that challenging days like that happen for a reason. I’ve always believed that things happen for a reason – and now that my brain is starting to clear, I’m starting to be able to actually live that way.

One of the challenges that I’ve been finding is that I have been suffering quite a bit of pain and headaches from the herniated discs in my neck.  Being in pain is never fun and adds to the frustration and irritability that I’m experiencing while the THC levels in my body subside.  I need to find a way to deal better with the pain.  I’ve relied on “medical” marijuana for so long – and it has worked, but now I need to find another way.

Being without much income while building my Solavei network (see is very challenging and definitely won’t be very helpful in getting me acupuncture and massage treatment, but over time, I think getting back into those will really be good for my neck, back and the current pain.

Despite the current challenges, there are still A LOT of really, really good things happening for and around me – and I am especially thankful!  I extra thankful to have met new friends Katie in Australia and Richie in Germany, both who are going through similar changes and challenges.  They are both doing GREAT things and making positive personal changes and I am SUPER proud of them!  Way to go mates!
