    Dude, these are you classic Anxiety symptoms. I used to get these symptoms as well, and this was when I wasn't smoking weed, lol. Quitting weed cold turkey is not a good idea as you will get withdrawal symptoms (which is what your experiencing now). I'm not sure what your history is with Marijuana, but if you have been smoking for years and are serious about quitting, find a support group.

    I would strongly suggest you see a physician as well, just to be safe and rule out any underlying illness (which I doubt you have any).

    But yeah, those symptoms you described are classic Anxiety symptoms. I actually experienced those last week for several days AFTER hitting my bong. You'll be fine..... :P

    Hi joshycoxville,

    It does sound like you're having panic attacks. I had them a lot back in high school and I smoked a lot of pot too. Pot can mellow some people out, but I think it you're sensitive to it, it can make you really anxious.

    I think it's great you stopped the weed and hanging out with the guys who use.

    18 is an incredibly stressful age under the best of circumstances, but you have the added stress of now having the worried thoughts and anxiety symptoms.

    Are there any kids you can socialize with who don't use? For example, do you have any friends or acquaintances who you can just hang out with one on one and play video games with?

    Are you artistic or do you have any other hobby you're good at, like playing the guitar? Do you like a certain band? Can you maybe start talking to kids in school about your interests and hobbies and see if maybe you have things in common?

    Then you can invite them over to just hang out and listen to music, or dray or play guitar or whatever. Try to do something like this with one person after school this week. You will feel good about yourself. And once you start socializing again, it will get easier and easier for you.

    If you find you can't even socialize on a small scale like this because of the thoughts and anxious feelings, then you should check with your doctor. You are not going crazy and anxiety is easily treated these days, but you have to go and get the help.

    Good luck!

    I used to smoke weed and do other drugs once in a while, but one day, I just started having nightmares whenever I smoked. I was smoking to relieve anxiety and to stop overeating, because I'm also overweight (weird I know, most people eat MORE not less) Now I have stopped all drugs except prescription. I don't know why you suddenly had symptoms but it happened to me too, but in a different way. I hope you can recover from this, you do seem to have symptoms of anxiety I believe.
