I quit smoking weed and doing drugs all together for a couple of months. Honestly, I felt better. More happy, more motivated to do things, more active. My life actually took a turn for the better. :P
I kept all of these feelings when I started smoking again. Always doing something (cooking, mixing music, cleaning..wtf,right?) whenever I am stoned now. I trip mushrooms every now and then, as well. I feel like each trip is more special, because I feel better about my life, etc.
Maybe a break would help....or maybe you can just try to fix those problems while you're smoking a J. It varies from person to person, I suppose. Personally, I needed that break. It definitely helped me get my shit together.
I will tell you in another life when we are both cats.
