stick at it it takes a few weeks for it to clear from your system and the layer of fat over your brain caused by toking can take even longer i struggled for nearl 20 yrs and once i stopped 2 years ago i did feel a bit different but im pleased as now i have no paranoia and feel so much healthier... i found coming to the end of smoking i was very antisocial and stopping has really been the best thing.. if your worried go and speak to your docter with prolonged use of canabis i now have a chemical inbalance my brain does not make enough seratoning so i do take medication to help with this
hope ive helped
