Day 24 of the 100 Day No Weed Challenge

Thank you for watching this video and visiting the blog. It really helps if you subscribe to both. Whether you are looking for tips and tricks on how to quit using marijuana – or are a hater of people who want something different – or anyone in between – it’s great to hear from all of you!

There are so many inspirational stories out there – and I want to hear more of them – so I can share more of them! (writing this just gave me a great idea)

You guys and gals ROCK – keep your comments going. If you want to share your personal story but don’t want it on YouTube or the blog – you can send me email at HowIQuitSmokingPot@gmail.com

100 Day No Weed Challenge Day 18 – Let Me Hear from You!

In this video I talk on Day 18 of my 100 Day No Weed Challenge. It’s going really well, except that I have been battling a super bad hacking attack on almost 20 or my websites, including HIQSP.

I’m having to rebuild most of these hacked sites from scratch, which is going to take a lot of time – especially considering some of my other web projects right now. That said, if you were blogging or going to blog on the HIQSP site, please let me know and I will need to get you a new login. I’m really sorry for the hassle, but glad to have the worst of the hacking attack behind me.

The other day I got a message from a subscriber who said he had been following me for a long time – but he had never even made a comment on one video. If you are out there watching these videos and/or reading the blog posts – let me hear from you! I want to hear your story. It helps motivate me to make more videos and write more blog posts. It’s also just super cool to hear from people from different parts of this amazing planet.

I really want to hear from some die-hard stoners and tokers – why won’t you take me up on the 100 Day No Weed Challenge? It’s only 100 days … What are you scared of?

Former Stoners Conquer the Hackers!

Stoners Conquer HackersHey Everyone – sorry that this site has been down a bit over the past couple weeks.  Hackers attacked one of my hosts’ servers and took down a bunch of my sites, so I’m having to move them over to more secure servers with beefier security.  To clarify, this was not an attack on people wanting to quit smoking weed – they took down a bunch of different types of sites.  It’s been painful, especially during the first couple weeks of my 100 Day No Weed Challenge, but I’ll fight through it and my sites will get better and stronger because of it.

Looks like I was able to import the posts correctly, but because of security concerns any previous author’s logins have changed so if you cannot login to your account contact me at HowIQuitSmokingPot@gmail.com and I will get you a new password.

Don’t have much time to redesign the site right now, but should get it looking a bit better over the next couple of weeks.  Thanks for your patience and support.

100 Day No Weed Challenge Day 8 Talk to People About Your Pot Use

In this video I give you an update on how I am doing on Day 8 of my 100 Day No Weed Challenge. I also talk about something that has helped me during my journey: actually talking to people about my use of marijuana. I’ve spoken open and honestly about my use of cannabis to everyone from my fiance to my 11 year old daughter to my 70-something year old mother. And it’s helped. Me and them.

This communication is helping me be accountable during this 100 Day No Weed Challenge. It has also helped them better understand what I’m going through. It also helps all of us feel better about the entire situation because there is actual communication and dialogue rather than secrecy.

Today I am challenging all stoners, tokers and potheads to stay away from marijuana for 100 days – but I’m also challenging them to talk to those closest to them about their use of pot and how it affects their lives and relationships.

Please remember when watching these videos and reading these posts, that I am only human.  I’ve quit a couple of times before and made videos and wrote about my experience.  Here you can read how I last fell off the no pot wagon.

100 Day No Weed Challenge Day 5 Coughing Resin Balls But Feeling Good

100 Day No Weed Challenge Day 5100 Day No Weed Challenge Day 5 and All is Good

This video is on the 100 Day No Weed Challenge Day 5. Things are going really well.

I’m feeling good, my energy level has increased, I’ve been working out once or twice every day and being very productive. This time around I am not (at least yet) feeling the symptoms that I did when I quit a couple of times before. My belief is that it’s because I really was not smoking nearly as heavy – or as long as I had in the past.

One thing that is not covered in this video is that I am extremely humbled by all the emails and messages that I have been getting from people all around the globe. I’m extremely happy that I have been able to inspire and help a good number of people who have similar experiences to me.

Hey, as I’ve said many times – if I can quit anyone can.

This 100 Day No Weed Challenge Day 5 is all about trying to get others involved. I’d really like to see those dope smokers who say they can stop anytime to actually prove that they can. Maybe they will realize that life can be pretty good without weed – and that they don’t really need it in their lives. Who knows? Maybe they will just decide to cut down and live healthier. Maybe they will choose to not make any changes. But at least they’ll know they can stop smoking pot for 100 days and what it feels like.

BTW – if you are not subscribed yet, please subscribe now to both the Quitting Pot YouTube Channel and the blog. It will help me win a subscriber challenge I have with my fiance and son – and also encourage me to keep making these videos.  If you liked this post and/or video on the 100 Day No Weed Challenge Day 5 I would really like to hear from you!

Thank you for watching, reading and your comments (both positive and negative). I appreciate YOU!

Read forward to see how I am doing on Day 8 of the 100 Day No Weed Challenge.

100 Day No Weed Challenge Day 3 Are You Up For It?

100 Day No Weed Challenge Day 3100 Day No Weed Challenge Day 3:  Ups and Downs, Many Frustrations and Victories

Here is a video for my 100 Day No Weed Challenge Day 3 to Stoners, Tokers and Potheads everywhere.

Yesterday was a difficult day. I was doing a lot of technical website work and a bunch of tools I had not used in awhile. It led to a lot of frustration, swearing and yelling (at my computer). But I did not reach for the pot. Was not even tempted.

In the end it turned out to be a productive day. I got done most of what I set out to do and furthered some opportunities.

So far, today has been an awesome day. Two hour workout at the gym, green drink, healthy breakfast and …. (you’ll have to watch the video to find out what else).

Still looking for people to take on the 100 Day No Weed Challenge with me. Are YOU up for it? You always say you can quit anytime you want ….

I challenge you to give up marijuana just for the summer and see how your life changes …

BTW – I’d really love it if you commented and subscribed!

How I Quit Smoking Pot – Falling Off the Wagon

How I Quit Smoking Pot – Falling Off the Wagon

I made this video in response to a subscriber to my YouTube channel who wanted me to do an update.

Well … it turns out that I have not quit smoking pot at all … I was doing so good until that fateful night in Hawaii after a great dinner and way too much Sake ….

A good friend and I took each took a single toke from some weed that was about 30 years old. That’s all it took. Once I got home, I started smoking pot again on a regular basis.

I really like to smoke before working out and sometimes before writing, but am really glad to have had access to MMJ after I have been injured. When my back went out last month, it was a complete godsend. I only had a couple of really strong painkillers and they were gone the first couple of days.

My stash of MMJ came in very handy during a very difficult time.

Still the same, I do not recommend anyone start smoking pot if they do not have a reason to. There’s no reason to do it if it does not help you.

I really do wish I hadn’t grown up smoking the dope, but I did and I need to be honest about it – and I am comfortable in my own skin.

Would love to hear your comments!

 

BTW – I am involved in a YouTube subscriber challenge with my fiance and son – so help me out by subscribing to a couple of my channels”
