Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I am glad that you have quit smoking marijuana and are taking the fluvoxamine maleate tablets to help your anxiety and depression. I also believe that you might need to use other medications to get over the physical withdrawal symptoms and need to consult a local qualified doctor. I also believe that you need to do so as soon as possible to avoid the urge to smoke again. The risk is of course going back on the path of dependence on these substances and having to do the cycle all over again. I hope you also consult a psychologist to find out what things may happen if you start smoking again.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
