Detoxing from ganja for the next month or so.. Day 1 today
« on: March 07, 2012, 10:42:56 PM »
I love ganja and am a strong supporter and advocate for the mental, spiritual and social benefits of marijuana; but I have to detox for a month or so.  I have some drug tests coming up for work, and also I believe in the ebb and flow of life.  To appreciate the flow you have to have the "ebb".  So to really get the most out of the ganja I have to be in control of it and not let it control me.

So I do this often where I go through periods of detox and then months of smoking every night.  (And ofcourse in Africa or LA I smoke any chance I get.  In Africa I'd say it was every couple hours, even getting up to go to the bathroom at night.  In LA I'd say it was anytime I was chilling with the LAMB crew  8).

So what's my routine for my Detox's....

1.  Meditation-  To achieve a similar level of mental stimulation and calm my nerves I have to engage in a lot of meditative practices.

2.  Qu'ran memorization-  Challenging my mind to learn Qu'ran helps strengthen my mind that has become supple and dependent on the weed.  My Qu'ran memorization is deeply visual, and therefore it challenges me and channels or sublimates my addictive energy into a more positive outlet.

3.  Dream analysis.  Analyzing dreams and writing them down helps ease my insomnia I experience without the aid of the ganja.  I put myself to sleep by analyzing previous dreams, and record my dreams in a journal each morning.

...feel me?

Sounds good bro.

You'll get crazy dreams at the start of the break. It's normal. Don't overanalyze them.

I have to overanalyze them.  That's partly how I meditate. 

I learned a trick about dream analysis that has served me well.  Basically, you personify the characters and objects in your dreams and interact with yourself from a 3rd person perspective.  So like let's say you dream that you are drowning in an ocean.  Well, you personify the ocean and then have yourself as the ocean, "Why are you here, why am I drowning" and then you answer from the perspective of the ocean. Because all people and objects in a dream were placed there by you, so therefore you know why they are there.

If you do it right it gives you deep insight into your life, or at the very least it can put you to sleep and cure insomnia.

I mean at the very start of the break, like the first couple of nights. You might get some really weird dreams (if your toking has been heavy enough). Just a heads up... Of course if you feel like analyzing them too is worth your time then go for it.

Day 1 went well.  No trouble sleeping at all.  Actually enjoyed the meditations.

That's a good way to do it.  A full week is probably good to change up your system and keep your tolerance down like you said; get the most out of your high.

I don't use a bong, I roll joints just because that's what I started with and what I'm most used to.  I mix it with tabacco to help it burn and help conserve some of the weed.  But still, I know joints can be wasteful, even more so than blunts.

Ahh.. it's about the same in that regard.  Because sometimes we eat because we are stressed.  So if I'm not smoking then I may get the urge to eat instead as a way to relieve stress.  So I actually feel better off smoking in that regard.

ya just keep stress level low, good exercize, good food...intellectually stimulation so u dont get bored...lots of meditation to get ur brain high naturally so u dont crave thc...id recommend some breathign exercizes (pranayama), best one is alternate nostril breathing(5-15 minutes a day, of course first u gotta start with a minute or two and build up on next day and so on)...keeps brain optimally running and relaxed, deep breathing is nice, u get high off that too (1-5 minutes a day) and then theres this exercize called kapal bhatti which is good for detoxing, strenghtening ur organs and releases feel good chemicals which reduce cravings..but that one is hard to explain, if u try the other two and like it ill try to break it down for u...lemme know. oh yeah the best one if u cant get willpower to quit is holding ur right nostril closed and breathing thru left.

it sounds like breathing exercize wont do much but in ancient indian system of medicine physical body is just one of 3 or 5 different bodies we have, one of them is astral body which is more subtle and also more powerful. i think thats the body we have in our dreams...and chi or prana (oxygen?) can influence that body directly...u can notice how breath controls ur mind, and they say mind is cause of most diesase anyways...

Word. Thats where its at.

Your life will get into full swing. You will rediscover energy and motivation you had when you were a child. 

Let's face it, when you're smoking weed often, you're not really being a full person. You're just being a handicapped piece of shit version of yourself.

You will begin to experience the natural high you get from exercise and eating real food.

Quitting weed, cigarettes, and anything else you are dependent on is the best thing you can do for yourself and those around you.

Haha! I know that situation, I been there. Went through the same thing with weed and cigarettes.

I would get everything ready to smoke whatever, then just before lighting the shit decide, "nah fuck it".
Often all you need to know is that you could easily smoke, but you have the power not to. Also, if quitting you may notice that friends, relatives, homies, whoever will fight tooth and nail to get you to keep smoking. Its incredible when I quit how hard people tried to get me to keep smoking to the point of shoving bongs and joints, lighters in my hands and telling me to smoke it. The thing is what people can't handle is that you are moving on to better things, which makes then uncomfortable with themselves.

Okay... So I blazed... I had reasons, but anything would sound like an excuse.  So anyway.. let's see today is the 14th.  I'm starting my detox over today, so starting from the 14th. 

...I'll let you know how it goes (Part 2).

You'll get crazy dreams at the start of the break. It's normal.

You were right.  I'm now on day 4 or 5 of sobriety and the vivid dreams have really increased in intensity. 

In just one knap ealier today I dreamed...

-That I walked by an old friend who was listening to Aerosmith and I said "Aerosmith sucks" and a knife attack ensued and I had a knife to his throat

-I dreamed I visited my grandparents house and I could even smell it and everything it felt 100% real, it was pretty much a lucid dream

...and so on...

I don't think I could have detoxed without Islam.  I guess I had accidently became dependent on ganja over the winter.  Right now Im staying with a Muslim group in St. Louis.  We are spending 7 days and nights in masjids (mosque's) around St. Loius visiting Muslims and performing various Islamic practices and functions and lectures and so on... it's called Jammat Tabligh for Muslims familiar with what I'm talking about.

The first time I tried to quit at home I only made it 1 night, but now I'm on 5 days of sobriety and steadily coming out of it, thanks to Allah and the Jammat Tabligh.

Thanks...

..yeah, I'm fully detoxed now.  It's been at least one full week.  I'm back from my trip and things are different.  I plan on not smoking for several months, and restricting it to just when I'm on vacation/outside of my regular city life here in KC.

I used to do these "Jammat Tabligh" trips a lot in 05-06, where you stay in a Muslim environment and live and sleep in various cities sleeping on the floor of the mosque where you stay.   I've changed a lot since those days when my life revolved around Islam.  This was my first trip in a long time but it definitely helped me a lot.  It cured my dependence on the weed, life had kind of brought me down as a result of a rough winter.  Being in a 100% clean environment for a week sort of restored my dignity and self-respect.

Nothing against ganja though.  I'm still an advocate for it.  But it should be used in the right time, place, context, etc.
