Hello everyone. I am a 28 year old male. When I was 12 I started smoking cigarettes, marijuana, and drinking heavily. From about 14 on I was drinnking, and smoking weed every weekend till about 17 when things really started to pick up. Thats when I started drinking almost daily and getting super smashed everytime. The pot use was periodic during this time but two years ago I totally quit drinking and after about a week sober from booze I just had to have something so I hunted down some weed and have been smokin ever since.
For the past 2 years its been one big smoke fest. All day everyday. I quit smoking cigarettes about 8 months ago and after that I smoked even more. And we arent talking about some shwag stuff we are talking about prime kind buds that look like gumdrops they are so coated with resin.
Last year I started getting heart palpitations so I quit cigs but I still had them anyway. My weed smoking continued until about 10 days ago when I decided that I have had it. Im studying for a career now and on top of these palpitations weed smoking just wasnt fun anymore.
Before I continue let me say that for these past 10 days I have NEVER gone this long without some sort of substance in me whether it be weed or booze. I dont even use caffiene because of the palpitations.
The problem is that about 3 days ago I started feeling like I couldnt breathe. I became obsessed with it I was constantly gasping for air and this turned into HUGE panic attacks which I have had before especially when I quit drinking after a month long binge.
Anyway I went to the er because I couldnt breathe and they said it was anxiety. they didnt say from weed but I told them I had recently quit. I never thought weed was addictive like this but I may be wrong. before anyone says I may ahve been smokin someithing laced, I wasnt cause I knew who was growing it and he is a longtime trusted friend. They gave me a few ativan at the hospital and I have been taking them and they help but I am still a wreck.
I panic all day and I still think I cant breathe.
What am I going to do??? I was fine when I was still smoking dope. Could this be from weed??? OR am I just losing my mind??? This is not fun and I will never do any drugs again. I whish I didnt even have to take these ativans but without them I would be going completey crazy. Please give me some advice. Thanks.

Oh yeah and after only 3 or 4 days of using these benzo's 2-3mg a day Im starting to feel hooked on them too. I just went about 8 hours without one and my legs and arms started shaking.
This is crazy. One minute I feel ok and the next im a wreck. PLEASE HELP. I feel so alone and dont know what to do. I feel like Im losing my mind.

Hi Spencer,

My name is, eeerrr, spence.

I'm from the UK. I started smoking and drinking at the age of 14. I have smoked near-on every day since...

Well, 2 weeks ago I gave up the bud, solid, and now im getting the exact same panic attacks you are... have been to the hospital and they says its because of the gear... Had an ECG, this showd up fine.. But now i keep getting panic attacks... Its like im really struggling to breath.... Or if I do not make an effeort to breath, i wont... uh! :bouncing:

Its been two weeks since my last bit of weed, so im hopeing its just becuase after such a long time smoking (fags as well, which i gave up 1 month ago) it will die down after a while... If i go to the doc's he will put me on some meds (as you would put it) but i dont want that... im not comming off one thing to go stuck on another...

so, how long did yours last m8 ?

Are you still gettting them. any information woould be great.

thx.

Spence.
