I smoke too much weed and I wanna stop, please help

Right, I'm in a bit of a pickle, I've been smoking too much, and I know its too much. Basically whenever I'm home, I'll be taking cones. Which, that said, I dont work 22-28 hours per week usually. Obviously its very expensive, but thats not really my biggest concern. My concerns lie with the fact that I'm too worried to check my own health at the doctors because I'm not sure I can stop smoking after the news that I hear. And also as I've just secured a new job, one that does random drug tests, it's feels like this is something that is holding me back from progressing. 
I know I need to find a councellor or something, I think. Honestly thats the point of this. Im a just a scared little 6'4 20 year old man.

@badlifechoices hey hey

 

oh i so get this lmao

 

I think you just have to weigh up what's more important right now. For me I would have to think in the short term, which would be passing the drug tests and keeping the job. Do you really wanna be that person who gets fired for failing drug tests??

 

but really good luck with the process!!! my sympathies are definitely with you!

@badlifechoices That sounds like a really tough situation to navigate -especially if you're starting to worry about your health and work- but it's also really brave of you to reach out. You mentioned wanting to get some help, which sounds like a great idea! Do you know if there's anyone you would want to reach out to for support?

Hi @badlifechoices, it is good to hear from you. It seems like a lot has happened since you last posted. You mentioned that you are struggling a bit.. do you want to tell us a bit more about that? It is great that you are a few months sober from weed - it sounds like it was a really big goal of yours Smiley Happy

Hi Taylor, yeah no kidding hahahaha, life has certainly taken a few interesting turns.

Regarding the struggling, its mostly to do with basically just switching from weed to alcohol, initially I just stopped smoking and I started working out a bunch and I was in a pretty good state but some shit happened and I started drinking a bunch. That said I am currently working on that, I'm planning on moving out with a friend in a few months so I'm trying to commit myself to not drinking at all, to exercising more and eating healthier. I have tried to do this a bunch recently as well but never quit quitting right. Imma try and hold a good mentallity about it and try to focus on bigger picture things. And yes, it really was a big goal of mine, just recently I started getting emails about one of the more recent responses to my inital post and seeing what I wrote and knowing that I managed to kick out a habit I was extremely dependant on, it gives me extra confidence in myself and with my current situation.
Thank you for taking the time to message me <3

I'm glad to hear that you've got a good plan in action for the next couple of months!!

The fact that you did manage to stop a really really hard habit to break is super super incredible, and I am sure the skills you learnt for that will definitely help you in the future too ((:

I think you should just do something else, I mean just take your mind off the grass. Go in for sports, if you really want to smoke, then just smoke cigarettes.
