I am addicted to smoking and i am suffering from panic attack lasting for 2-3 hours. how can i possibly get rid of it ?

After i got done smoking, my heart rate like increased, and i can feel my heart like tryin to jump out of my chest lol, and i wasnt sure if i smoked to much, or if the weed was laced, and i also was feeling very faint and looked pail =(. any ideas what this could of been? panic attack? and it lasted for like 2-3 hours, non stop beating, and it calmed down after i threw up, the chinease food i ate =( it wasnt my 1st time, i felt fine for 15-20 min after i got done smoking, then i started to feel weird, when i closed my eyes i saw shapes and i was like trippin real bad, and then i thought i was a robot, after that my heart just started racing non stop, then i tried to calm down and couldnt even walked outside in the cold for a bit, but then it calmed down after i threw up. i dont think it was laced, since non of my friends felt the same as i did and like 10 of us smoked the same weed, but i smoked the most out of all them, and it was pretty strong.

some people (me included) tend to have a panic attack when smoking pot with too much worries or problems on the mind and already anxious to begin with. panic attacks do increase the heart rate to insane levels and can also make you constantly think you are going to die (impending doom). some may not be scared of death at all their whole life then they get a panic attack and that changes that. all I can say is you if must smoke weed, get drunk first to prevent the panic attack. drinking is a CNS depressent so it helps with nerves that bring on the panic attack. though just dont drink too much cause then you go into eternal sleep. lol

That just recently happened too me but now i have nightmares about it now. I was smoking with many people and none of them felt the way i did. i walked about a half mile down that street not really even knowing it and i felt like i was doing things more than once. and when everyone caught up to me i told them i wanted to go to the hospital. My friend says its because i didnt eat before i smoked. And my aunt says its because i have to much on my mind with college on the way and leaving my boyfriend of 5 years behind.. What do you think?

You smoked too much. And it was probably a very good weed, but not laced. THC increases your heart rate and slows down circulation, and that can case dizzy spells. If the weed has a lot of shiny crystals on the buds and its really sticky, then its really good weed. I had it happen alot when I smoked good weed and you never know if one hit will do it or if it will take a whole joint. Not a cool feeling huh?

This is an old question but I was googling and thought I'd reply. Some people, not all have this kind of adverse reaction to smoking. (Me included) If you know you're like this you need to take things really slowly. Take SMALL hits, not big hits. The size of the toke is everything. You can take a huge rip and be freaking out, or you can take 5 small ones and be fine. This has been my experience though. I've found that when I smoke too much from being sober, my heart rate increases, my chest tightens, and I just generally get paranoid about anything to do with my body which is not good. The bottom line is you are fine, nothing is wrong unless you continue to escalate the anxiety further. I've gotten my heart rate over 200 bpm from just sitting freaking out about my heart. Not fun let me tell you. The marijuana is triggering a response from your nervous system that can be exacerbated by paranoid thoughts. Paranoid thoughts = flooding your body with epinephrine which is adrenaline. We all know what adrenaline does. Happy smoking!

lol sissy.
It cant hurt you unless its laced.
Just relax.
Paranoia goes away with time.
Only comes around when you're trying to hide it or have a lot on your mind.

I have never felt that way smoking weed on the other hand last night i tried that new WICKEDXXX. I was told it was really potent and it will put on a better high than weed. I tried it last night and i felt my heart grew and was trying to come out of my chest. I felt my veins being drained and i could feel some of my organs that i have never felt before. I'm trying to find any info on WICKEDXXX because i'm a big dude and a little fearless, that episode last night made me feel like i was going to die. I even prayed to GOD like the first time i got drunk. Any info on WICKED XXX would help.

this answers everything that happens to me as well!! Ive smoked weed constantly for the past 3 or 4 years and never really had a problem besides my first time which i fainted ;) ha but anyways ive been around weed for soo long now always loading and loading bongs or rolling blunts/joints anything! but lately my anxiety after every hit has been way over the top. i feel my chest tighten, my heart is literally jumping out of my chest, i see black dots and sumtimes on the edge of passing out but never doo.... its crazy how ive smoked all this time and now it kinda freaks me out. i guess i just need to slow it down and hope for the best. Drinking deff does take my mind off of it as well then i smoke and feel great!

Need Help -- Eyes been "Veiny Red" (Couldn't find the damn Visine) and had dark rims on each of the corners ever since I smoked A WEEK AGO. Everyday I wake up, looking into the mirror hoping this terrible signs will go away. I check my heart rate ever so often since that day, and I know I am having panic attacks every now-and-than.
But, is it possible, when you can feel something in your veins that causes pain and feels like your choking, and can't breathe, Which is also the cause of panic attacks... Can the weed I smoked be laced with something? How could I know for sure?
Another scary moment - I was washing my hands after running to the biffy couple days ago, and I fillled the sink up to the top, and I held my breathe and dunked my head in, I couldn't feel my breath shortening, it's like I could've survived under there, but after about a minute, I poked my head out, and I breathed normally no cause of catching breath... I'm throwing this weed away right when I find a chance to.

talk shit. weed slows you down its a depressant...

thats just what happens if you smoke more weed than you can handle. its the same as any drug, the more you use it the more you can take. dont smoke so much at once and it wont happen. remember the effects of weed dont usually happen straight away so if you leave more time between smoking then you wont ever smoke too much.remember as well if you do smoke too much just chill out and take deep breaths and itll be fine. also if you need to puke then do and youll feel better for it.

haha you thought you were a robot.

i got the fast heart rate and thought i was gonna die which was terrifyin but i think i took 2 many big hits and i tryed to keep in my lungs which made me cough and i had a bad trip while walking in the high street and nearly falling asleep xD and then when it was over i found out it was something called blue cheese which apparently is the most potent of its kind and not good for beginners and i always thought i smoked to much and 2 much bigs hits and the zoot was a fattie so 2 much guess. if i roll my zoot more thinly and tight and small and take small hits will that make me feel good?

This happens to me if I smoked too much at once. A few times I thought was going to have a heart attack and die. But what I did was just sit or lay down and CALM down. When you calm down and just sit or lay down for about 30 minutes you should start feeling normal again. Most likely is caused from too much at once too fast, always take it very slow to prevent the panic attacks. Also go to your doctor to make sure you don't have an underlying heart problem.
