Replacing one addictive substance with another, is never a good direction to go in.

You'll get similar answers from most all, I suspect.

Well...fortunately not one of my vices...someone brought it up.  I have been reading other peoples postings...I have it easy...as an addict can get.  Ending day 2 with my wife at my side and overall not bad...I think for me it is going to be the psychological part that is going to get me.  My DR. hands these out like they are tic-tacs.  I'll be checking in everyday...I have drawn the line in the sand.

I can't speak to the pot smoking from any kind of experience but I know I wouldn't smoke pot or take Xanax or even Benadryl. You're just never going to know how YOU really feel until your brain is running on it's OWN chemicals!

Now, as far as Dr. TicTac goes...you should call that office and get a note placed in your chart: NO NARCOTICS.  

Good luck!

     Like they said a drug is a drug if you want to be clean NO pot.   And you need to tell doctor feel good you are a addict.   When I go to the Doc. I tell them Iam recovering addict.

No pot, sweetie. You don't need another drug---particularly an illegal one! You'd kick yourself if you got busted for something you didn't even have an appetite for! It's bad for the lungs and expensive, too. But most of all, you just don't need another drug! The other folks here can give you some ideas for herbal/naturopathic/OTC stuff for you. You didn't say, but I take it you are looking for a calmer-down kind of substance? Do you wish to take it during the day, or just at night? What are your symptoms? The more info you can give us for what you are needing/wanting, the better. That way we can match you up with the best thing we know of! Hang in there and write back when you can....
