Have you still stopped?
I suggest you go see a professional therapist. It might be hard to take that step and seek help but I can guarantee you it's worth.
Update to my post ... I've since quit CBD weed (it still has THC in it as well ... plus CBD is a cannabinoid modulator such that it increases action of THC). I recommend CBD weed as a temporary crutch with which to quit cannabis altogether. I've quit all drugs and alcohol since I posted (except beer and wine on occasion). However, I noticed once I quit I started getting back into RS (can't responsibly play such a time-intensive game at present) and watching porn regularly (not the best use of my time/sexual motivation). One thing to keep in mind is that when you quit substance abuse (esp. marijuana with regards to motivation) you'll end up with time and energy that needs to be directed somewhere. Merely replacing substance abuse with another addiction isn't going to benefit me, so I (and OP) should seek meaningful activities to fill the void left by drug abuse.
I understand completely. Do you have a gym membership or interest in any sport?
Yep I go to the gym on campus and play intramural soccer. Exercise is amazing for my mental & physical health ... intramural or other social-minded sports are also a great way to meet new people with active interests.
That's fantastic! And good that you acknowledge it's effect. Keep doing that and make sure you get enough rest and eat healthy
