    I wouldnt consider himself a HEAVY smoker. Although I do smoke daily though. Swim go through like a 8th a week. Swim have been smoking for 2 years. Just some info on swim.

    I have noticed over the past month that food does not look appetizing, and swim CANNOT get hiself to eat food while not high. When slim looks at food sober even if he is hungry swim cant seem to stomach it. Swim just dosent know If anything else could be causing this all swim knows is that he shouldnt need pot to be able to eat

    What do you guys think

    If You is physicaly "addicted" to THC then this is very normal. Your body is in withdrawel and you are actually quiting cold turkey. Insomnia, depression, sweating and lose of appetite/eating problems are common symptoms.

    What You should do is stick to being sober for a couple of weeks, make sure You gets enough vitamines and the appetite will come back in a while.

    You could be sick with something unrelated, and the weed is covering up the symptoms. You wont know unless you quit smoking for a while.

    Creeping death is right. After all, they use weed to stimulate appetite in those dying of cancer and aids. That's powerful. Your appetite loss is probably related to another problem and the weed is counteracting it.

    Yes I agree with snapper,metalhead probably has some kind of bug which means probably need to see a doc for the problem,if you dont have an illness maybe suggest to youre doc that you have wasting syndrone,then you might luck out and get prescribed marinol(medical thc in pill form)........Good luck need to eat,dont eat then you dont shit,then you die..........

    That's not exactly true. THC is not physically addictive and has never been proven to be by any scientific study.

    That's why Swim marked it "addicted" because its still in debate. Some say they are addicted and some say that it can't be.... Swim himself thinks its not phisicaly addictive....

    yes the word addicted is used to often in the context that someone really enjoys feeling good (high) rather than normal (not high). if you have a choice to either be high or not and you chose to be high, doesn't make you an addict.

    quite smoking for a week, month, whatever. do it as a test. if after a week you still have no appetite, see a Dr. look on the bright side, the buzz will be so much better after a little break.

    Marijuana has no physicaly addivtive qualities; there has been research that have shown that the cannibanoids do not cause physical dependencies ... let's make sure not to blame mental eating disorders on marijuana, as those are the type of myths we are trying to stop.

    It sounds like you have developed an eating disorder, which marijuana is often times used medically to treat the symptoms of.... to cure your eating disorder, I would recomend counseling. In the west coast of the u.s. there are many marijuana friendly medical centers that offer marjiuana treatment for symptoms and counter culture friend counseling services.

    much love and hope to your health
