Ending a Marijuana Addiction

Do you have a friend who smokes marijuana? Perhaps you have a deep desire to smoke marijuana yourself? If you answered "yes" to either question, then you've come to the right place. We've put together different ways to assist you or someone close to you with this somewhat complicated problem. In addition to this information, we suggest signing up for an online drug/marijuana class. This way you can be fully educated on this subject.

Be Accountable

The first step you should pursue in quitting a marijuana habit is to share your goal with someone. Not only is it important to state your addiction out loud, but to have someone witness it and hold you accountable is very powerful. Now two people know you have a habit to change.

The Quitting List

In order to properly fight your marijuana habit, you may need a reason to stop smoking. Therefore, it can help to create a detailed list of the reasons why you want to pursue a life without smoking pot. Consider all of the health, relational, financial, and physical benefits to quitting.

Get Help

It can help to do this with a friend but only if they are as committed as you. Sometimes it's good to have a neutral person involved. Therefore, don’t be afraid to seek outside help. If you or the person close to you is struggling with ending their habit, then find a positive therapist, counselor, or support group to help.

Stay Positive

Staying positive can be a challenge during this time. Therefore, it will be important to have a plan to stay strong and committed when you aren't feeling that way. Make a plant such as, "I will call so and so or I will take the dog for a walk before I do anything regretful". Take one day at a time and remind yourself that you can do this!

Don't Stop Healing Yourself

Never give up! Whether you enroll in an online drug class or pursue sobriety on your own, stick with your goal and continue to fight your marijuana habit. Stay strong and committed and remind yourself that quitting is hard but very worthwhile.
