Ive had a heavy adiction for the last 2.5years. Ive smoked

Customer Question

Ive had a heavy weed adiction for the last 2.5years. Ive smoked from 7-11gram of cannabis daily consistentley without missing a day. I cant sleep at night without weed. I cant go to public places as when i do i get very nervous and try not to look at prople face to face. I get stressed very easily and get headaches because i think to much about stuff that hasnt even happend yet. I can be happy and then get really angry to the point where i get hot and tears come to my eyes and i have to calm myself down. Ive seperated myself from my freinds and my family. And im depressed, im not happy with life, i dont value it. If i was to die tomorrow i wouldnt care. Ive become a misserable and unhappy person. I want to go the doctors to get help but i dont want to explain my problems in person. What can i do

Due to the amount i work ive managed to cut down a little bit. But ive been smoking that long i dont feel right unless i smoke. Because ive done it consistentley for so long, its become a habbit. I cant even sit there and watch tv or go out with freinds unless i have smoked.

Of course it is down to the weed

No one smokes that much weed per day without side effects

This anxiety and nervousness is directly related
