There's some pretty harsh words in here for someone sharing their personal experiences.
Glad you're out and doing OK, 'hawk.
I had a former friend in the Yukon Territory 40 years ago who couldn't smoke pot/hash, as when he did, he had what he described as anxiety, and "1,000 racing thoughts in the time it took (him) to take a single step walking down the side-walk." Sounded like living Hell to me.
He was sincere, though his experience reminded me of much heavier drug experiences I'd had, and nothing matching my lengthy cannabis and hash history. None the less, I respected his issues, and stopped offering him a puff.
The 1999 Golden Anniversary Merck Manual cited a (approximately) 10% addiction rate in cannabis users, per their research/review of studies, though, admittedly, long gone are the days of differentiating between physical addiction and psychological addiction; there's BIG money in drug treatment and 'recovery,' much of which (though not all) I regard as snake oil and placebo outcomes related to 'mind over matter' results. Psychologically out-sourcing our own power and ability for our successes.
I'll add that the Merck Manual, in its time, when we were faced repeatedly with Government and others' hype and bullshit in our legalization efforts, was one of the more kind and fair-minded sources among the mainstream publications for us.
That outa' the way, it's been my understanding that for some/many chronic users of psycho-active canna products, sleep disruption (often lasting about 2 weeks or so) and some amount of irritability, can be outcomes during abstaining after an extended time using.
I suffer routine dyssomnia, so I wouldn't know. I'm up several times each night no matter what. Probably for the last 40-50 years or more.
OP, I hope your discomforts wane in the coming time ahead.
Some people die from peanut butter, nuts, and milk, too. But those items haven't typically been politicized and used to destroy persons' families and lives the way the Drug War has used cannabis, so when someone types, "Peanut butter nearly killed me," they don't get jumped all over and accused of dishonesty.
A little diplomacy, understanding and patience might save our species and planet..... Or not.
