YouTuber Logan Paul has described the withdrawal symptoms he has suffered since he stopped smoking weed.

Posting on Instagram the social media star turned boxer said he had quit on Christmas Eve and since then has had “by far the hardest week of 2021”.

He said quitting weed left him with a “loss of appetite, [and] insomnia” as well as “extreme irritability.”

To make matters worse, he then got food poisoning. He wrote:

“Then yesterday on NYE, I got food poisoning (which was odd because all I had was a tiny croissant & a latte in the morning). I threw up 40+ times and spent the evening sweating in bed… AND all the pharmacies were closed so I couldn’t get any medicine.

“I was so dehydrated that I begged the only emergency ambulance in the city to hook me up to an IV so I could replenish and go out with my friends. They said it wasn’t possible unless they took me to the hospital.

Paul then explained how he tried to “initiate the rally of the century” by managing to ‘put on [his] suit and go to the party for 10 minutes,” but that he ended up quickly returning home “defeated and disappointed”.

Thankfully, he then added was feeling “much better” and is anticipating the year to be “astronomical”.

“I consider it an involuntary ‘reset’. Having been physically and mentally humbled (again), it’s only up from here.”
