  repeated smoked Cannabis (daily)


I've been a regular pot smoker for about 2 1/2 years now, if I have weed I'll usually smoke a couple joints a night. In the past it was less, and as time went on I developed into a every-day smoker.

2 years ago it was no big deal if I ran out, and now I try to always have a 'supply'. The biggest reason for this is I can't fall asleep without it. Within the past 6 months I've developed insomnia and I don't know if pot is the actual cause, but I've never had problems falling asleep before. Any time I don't have weed and try to go to bed, I end up tossing and turning for hours and eventually getting maybe 4-5 hours sleep. But if I smoke a couple joints throughout the night and then one right before bed it makes falling asleep a lot easier. I moved to Montreal a few months ago and went pot-less for a month and half and still couldn't establish healthy sleep patterns. Now I'm trying to stop smoking altogether because I don't like having to NEED pot.
