The 3 C’s that helped me out tremendously with my weed addiction, praying it will help ya’ll out too with weed addiction or any addiction to harmful behaviors

TL/DR: The 3 C’s that kept kicking my ass and not letting me “heal” from weed addiction: Seeing my weed addiction healing journey as being a Challenge, being Cynical, and thinking in ways that were always Critical. The 3 C’s that are my brain’s new friends are: being Curious in my weed addiction healing journey, being Compassionate for anything and everything related to my weed addiction, and learning what Courage is and practicing incorporating it into my life.

I have personally struggled so hard with weed addiction and my many other poor coping habits that were causing me more harm than good.

The 3 C’s that held me back from making any real progress for many years all centered on my attitude towards my “healing” journey from weed addiction:

  1. I saw quitting weed as a painful and impossible Challenge.

The new 3 C’s that I have learned to befriend and try to keep in my mind and learn how to adopt into my daily attitude were:

  1. I remained Curious about anything and everything that related to my weed use behavior, my health, my wellness, my options — this motivated me to try out different tools and therapists, and helped me learn to think “helpfully” and “healthfully” for myself.

Much love for you all, those of my readers who are suffering from harmful addictive behaviors, we are all struggling and suffering together. I have cried the same tears, swore with the same words, and felt the same hopelessness and despair as we all do on here.
