i am a huge pothead and has been for several years! I have quit a few times, such as right now since in pregnant. I have never broken out from quiting. When I have quit I go straight for comfort foods such as fast foods, pizza and that sort of stuff. Any foods that involve grease will make you break out! As for the soar throat, you may have smoked a lot before you quit as to go out with a bang so to speak which will cause a sore throat. Also depending on your smoking method i.e pipe, bong, joint. will have different effects on your throat and lungs for that matter. Bong hurts it the most for sure!!!! depending on how much you really were smoking, after you quit you may notice you coughing up black stuff which is the tar stuck in you lungs. if you want to get it out of your system i suggest taking a shot of wheat grass every morning (very gross but very good for you), also drinking plenty of water will help you throat, pimples, and everything else in your body. it washes out all the toxins that are causes these things. good job of quiting i know how hard it is!
