I'm new here n very first post:) well I've had severe anxiety since my 20's but I've had major depression my whole life... Anyways I've been addicted to marijauna since age 12.. Yes the addiction is real and horrible as I self medicate my anxiety but desperately need to quit smoking it's ruined my life I can't get pregnant for the life of me an so many problems. Has anyone takin gabapentin for anxiety? I'm so scared of taking new meds or any kind of meds at that.. I have my pills ready an tomorrow will be my first day without weed. I saw on google a 12 week study was done that gabapentin helped ease the withdrawal symptoms from pot. Cuz in may 2012 I quit smoking pot for 45 days and in that 45 days I was in n out the hospital for panic attacks I felt so weird like something terrible is going to happen to me an I feel like such a freak every where I went! So I started smoking again n been smoking hard n strong ever since. I believe pot has severely messed up my ovulation and everything else! Wish me luck I would love to hear someone similar like me even if ur not like me and u have anxiety I'd love a friend to talk to I have no "real life" friends my social phobia is too crazy! :( talk to me:)

Love to u all:)

hey name's Corey i never was addicted to it i smoked once between week & month periods to no effect. I think it can happen if you become dependent of it. But, the feeling is something i'm not too hooked on. You should add me on facebook Corey Shamel Hallett i'd love to talk to you more and stuff like that :)

I'm taking Gaba... Calmplex and 5htp. I think it does take the edge off withdrawal, this is day 5 for me sober. I've tried many times to quit and like you last year in may I just stopped as i had enough of it ruining my life and controlling me. I had unbelievable back and leg pains to the extent of disability, spent so much on drs and meds, now i have a chunk of flesh missing from where i just had to have cortisone injections. Silly me. And spent 3 wks in a clinic. They said i had psychosis and put me on antideppressants and valium, I played their game for a couple of months. Weed stopped working for me and after 7 months i thought i'd try a less potent form...cannabis resin. I'm also taking magnesium as i learned that Cannabis depletes magnesium levels which is why i think that i had so many problems with my muslces bones and joints. I still have some aches and pains to this day. Best of luck and one day at a time. Also prayer and exercise helps.
