I'ts been It's been six weeks since i quit smoking i feel alot better now but still i face some of the withdrawal symptoms. My vision is disturbed and i have a painful headache. I still have concentration problems. Sometime i'ts as if i am still using marijuana. I would like to ask if it's possible to have permanent problems from smoking marijuana and for how long do the symptoms last and you start feeling normal again?

    weed has no withdrawal other than maybe a little anxiety. these things you are experiencing are most likely caused by something different that you didn't realize before because you were under the influence. I would just go to the eye dr. and have an exam done.
    I am 39 years old, I smoke weed on a daily basis from 13 till I was 36. NEVER experienced withdrawal, other than as I said anxiety and that went away untreated after a few months, and as I said I smoked for 24 years everyday, several times a day.
