A bit of a problem

I have a bit of a problem. For the last year I have been smoking pot once a day everyday of the week , every week of each month of the year. While being stoned I bindge eat to a point where I am so full that I struggle to breath. Ive woken up once one night nearly chocking on my own vomit from being so full. Some days I will have the worst heartburn and other day I wake up feeling as thou a bus has just run over me. I have become dependable and I can''t stop myself from overeating. 2 years ago I lost a lot of weight but I''m starting to gain again. Can someone try and help me please, i don''t have all the answers anymore...

Hello Charl,
I think that it is very necessary to see your problem as more than just a compulsion to overheat. You likely know that your marijuana (ab)use is giving you what is commonly known as "the munches", in other words, an increased appetite. This is physiological. You need to first attend to what sounds like a marijuana substance dependency and see your problems with drugs and overheating as a continuum. I suggest that you start by consulting with an addictions centre and be assessed. If you need a recommendation, I will need to know where abouts you live. You can email me if you prefer.

It sounds like your problem is the pot. Stop using and if you feel you can''t do it on your own,seek help on the addiction section. I''m in recovery and it''s not for me to judge whether you are user or way to tell is to ask yourself if you would be wiling/able to quit due to your eating distress on your own. If not, you may be an addict.a user would have stopped by now if they had your problem. Just give it some thought.

You are under the impression that you have a " bit"  of a problem, when it seems that you actually have a " major"  problem.
Addiction can only be addressed if you really, really want to take control - will power is the first step. If that doesn''t work you will have to seek professional help. Good luck!!
