Depression

Hi , Im a 27 year old man . For the past few months i been playing video game on computer pretty much all day , not going out , not working and on top of that smoking weed from time to time and drinking lots of coffee. Since last week i started feeling real dizzy all the time , specially when i go out, everything looks kind of different . I feel weird talking to people and i lost inspiration to do other things. I stop smoking marihuana 3 days ago for good. but i still playing, not as much. Symthoms didn't go away. I feel spaced out , like detach from myself , lots of headaches and dizziness. Can this be depression ?  does anybody experience anything like these before? Can my headaches come from the comp. monitor ? I have feeling of sadness and fair. Now , when im back on computer somehow i feel normal, but otherwise it's really wierd. please i need help..

Hi,

Your symptoms are suggestive of marijuana side effects.Marijuana is one of the most commonly used and dangerous drug to be used.It has the same CNS depressant properties as alcohol.Depression is quite common with marijuana use.It causes CNS depression, increased heart rate, impaired coordination and balance, delayed reaction time,diminished short-term memory,anxiety and panic,nausea,vomitings,tremors ,sleepiness and altered body temperature.

These symptoms will go away in a couple of days after leaving marijuana.However if they persist then pls consult a psychiatrist.

I hope it helps.Pls let me know if there is anything else.Regards.

Hi
Thanks for writing to the forum!
Drugs, inactivity, caffeine----everything you did was in favor of depression. What is encouraging is that you realize you have a problem and are out there trying to find a solution. This feeling of detachment stays for days in marijuana users who have been using it for a long time. If you have a good support from friends and relatives then they can help you through the initial tough days of stopping the drug. Once these days pass, the craving and the physical effects of stopping marijuana will go. In case this is not possible do enter a ************** program close to your home.
Take up yoga, deep breathing exercise, walking and remain strong and determined in your effort to do away with this habit. Drink plenty of fluids and water (not caffeine), eat fresh fruits and vegetables and keep yourself busy throughout the day.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

When I read a post like yours my blood pressure goes high enough to stroke out. I get so angry I want to punch a hole in the wall.

I'll tell you how I spent the evening. Holding the hand of a man in a hospital bed in a critical care unit who is going to die within the next three to five days.

"I want to live..." he cried as I held his wrist.

He is in level ten pain, unrelieved by drugs.

Do you know what this man would give for another chance to see a sunrise, smell a flower, hold a woman's hand?

Depressed?

For goodness sake, the life-force put you on this planet for a reason. Not to play video games and smoke pot and waste yore existence.

You don't need a "support group" where everyone sits around and tells one another war stories about "how bad they had it".

You need a boot in the butt.

Go on the internet, search out "Meditations" by Marcus Aureloius, and read it.

Last Summer i went to my fathers house and they were saying they heard on the radio or something that kids and/or people who play alot of video games and are not active can become depressed.
Go out, go to a party, get a mate. watch a movie with a friend.
Im guessing the game is kinda like caffene it get addicting to play, expessilly when u have noone to play with.
Get some close friends. play ever once in a while. good thing you stopped weed.

it can also be your diet. eat well. im not saying go on a diet just watch what your putting in your mouth while cooped up in your home.
