I have not been able to have a bowel movement

I have not been able to have a bowel movement on my own without aid, such as Fleet enema and suppositories for going on three weeks now maybe longer. What is causing this, I do not feel sick in any way nor do I have the urge to go. I been drinking prune juice, eating meta mucil fiber cookies and drinking meta mucil fiber drink. Been doing what I think would help if I was constipated.

I stopped smoking marijuana & cigarettes 2 sundays ago (August 10, 2014). I was consuming a lot of tobacco and marijuana everyday for nearly a year. It helped me have bowel movements. I have been off and on the substances for 5 years. Before then I had similar problems when quitting, but I believe it is because I have transformed my body into relying on marijuana and cigarettes. Ever since I quit on august 10th I have not been able to have a regular bowel movement. When I do try and force it out, it comes out thin & rectangular and it is definitely not all of what should come out. I feel tired and sometimes get a headache from being so full. My farts smell terrible. My mom s side of the family including my sister has constipation problems as well. My grandmother died from colon cancer at age 47. The only thing that helps me are laxatives and prune juice. I do not get the sensational feeling that I used to have when going. Please help!! Thanks...
