Five Tips You Need To Get Through This Tolerance Break
July comes to an end, and you are a little bit tired of crazy parties with cannabis. Maybe you feel like you are not getting high as you used to or just want to clean your head. Tolerance break can benefit everyone, regardless the reason behind it. For some people these breaks can be tough — and here’s how to prepare.
1. Go hard or go home
Acknowledge that it is going to be tough. You have been smoking quite often, right? Then you most probably have some sort of addiction which will cause withdrawal symptoms. It is not just cannabis that causes it. Curbing drinking or eating will cause some discomfort due to cravings. Keep in mind — it takes about two weeks for symptoms to get better. But these 14 days may be a bit harsh.
2. Throw it all away
Whichever cannabis product you use, get rid of it. Period. You may want to save some for the days after the break but trust us — an ‘Out of sight, out of mind’ approach will save you from disappointment. Once you feel withdrawal, you will run right to your hidden treasure and get a nice one-hitter. But as soon as you are done, that guilty feeling will consume you. And it is not what you want while on break, right?
3. Call your friends and tell them you are taking a break
You have to tell your friends that you are taking a break so that they will not tempt you. After two weeks the craving will subside, but it still will be tough to hang with homies. Telling your friends will decrease the peer pressure and help you keep sanity.
4. Find something to do
You will have lots of free time. Find something your future self will thank you for. Enroll in drawing class. Start to run (running gives you high, you know?). Try programming (if you still haven’t). When you get back to cannabis, you will feel like a brand new person. Probably, you will even use your skills in a high-mode. Who knows, maybe you are a genius in disguise?
5. Stay focused
Stick to a date. There will be times where you are going to feel like you are about to give up but make a promise that you will not. Meditation may help. It will be tough, but you will get through it. Yep.
