Stress and DP are soul mates!

Be very very very careful with weed.....The fact that you are feeling a little off from smoking it in my opinion is an alarm bell ringing...

 

Nobody on here can tell you to smoke or not to smoke or that you will or will not develop full blown DP, panic attacks and anxiety as a result smoking...

 

What I will tell you is this...........

 

You are basically playing a game of Russian Roulette by smoking marijuana...Some people are very lucky and weed doesnt do them any harm...Others like alot of us on here have been very unlucky and weed has f****d us up (some of us like me permanently)

 

The other thing I must point out to you apart from the risks to your mental health is ADDICTION.....ALL drugs (weed included) are addictive and if you do develop dependancy trying to get off it will be a nightmare......

 

Oh and please dont tell me you only smoke occasionally and just for fun....I work with heroin addicts and alcoholics and cocaine addicts on a regular basis...They ALL (me included) started out smoking weed for "FUN"....

 

Addiction is progressive.....

 

My advice! Stay away from all drugs (even alcohol) and enjoy life the natural way........It will save you years of misery....Its just not worth the risk...Alcohol and drugs destroy lives and families and careers and dreams...

 

Please look after yourself...

If you stop thinking about DP and more importantly dont fear it anymore then technically yes you are cured...

Think of it this way....When you live in a place were winters are long dark wet and cold (Ireland/Canada etc) wheres the first place you want to go on vacation...Its certainly not the North Pole or Iceland or Greenland.....Its somewhere warm and sunny...Now if youve ever been on vacation in a warm sunny place like maybe the Caribbean or the Meditteranean how many people including yourself did you notice were in bad moods (Not many I bet)

 

Also ask yourself how much easier it is to jump out of bed and go to work on a morning that when you wake the sun is beaming through your window compared to a morning thats pitch black....

 

When I look at animals like bears etc they seem to be ahead of us humans as regards winter....They snuggle up and sleep through it LOL...Now that sounds perfect to me :P

SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is very real....

 

Its much more common in the Northern Hemisphere where winters are long and dark...The theory is that we are being starved of the most natural form of vitamin D (Sunlight) in the long dark winter months and as a result feel depressed....For people prone to mental ill health issues this can turn from being just winter blues into all out clinical depression....

 

I myself experience depressive episodes much more frequently in winter than in summer....The difference proper decent long sunny days have on my mood is quite dramatic....As a result of this mood enhancement my DP symptoms drastically diminish too...

 

Its a scientific fact that the further away you get from the equator in the northern hemisphere the more common depression in winter becomes...

 

Ive tried sitting in front of SAD therapy lamps and also supplimenting my diet with extra vitamin D....None of it came even close to real sunlight as regards lifting my mood and hence my spirit...
