How to give up smoking weed

Marijuana is illegal in some countries and this article or site does not condone nor condemn those that choose to use it. This site does, however, attempt to deliver people from a cycle of nicotine dependency. We cannot ignore the fact that recreational smoking of marijuana (mixed with cigarette tobacco) has caused nicotine addiction.

Marijuana refers to the cannabis plant intended for use for medicinal or recreational purposes

Quit grass first before you stop smoking cigarettes

The UN has estimated that 4% of the world’s adult population (162 million people) use marijuana annually, and about 0.6% (22.5 million) use it daily. However weed, grass, pot, blunt, joints, cannabis, reefer, bong hit, skunk, hash, resin, leb, etc., whatever it is called, is not very addictive. Neither is it as harmful as cigarettes to smoke.

But our natural way to give up smoking needs to be entered into with a clear head. This is why you have to stop smoking marijuana for a few days in order to be cured.

This will be easy for most people. Only a few people smoke cannabis habitually all day everyday. However, there are many reefer smokers who smoke often and would like to curtail it’s use. We have a solution for these people.

If people do seem addicted to marijuana, it may be because they are addicted to the substance they are smoking it with. We need to separate these two substances in the mind before we can commence with treatment.

That is why it is very important for smokers to finish, give to others or throw away any weed or hash that they have on their possession or in their abode. Even hardened pot smokers should find this relatively easy to do.

THC Cannabis
The psychoactive chemical in cannabis is Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol or THC

Is Marijuana addictive?

There is evidence to suggest that is not physiologically but psychologically addictive and that regular use can cause dependence in 10% of cases. It is reasonable to assume that a great majority of cannabis users are not addicted to the active ingredient although many may feel trapped and isolated by it’s continual use.

Many pot smokers will go through extended periods free of dope when it is, for what ever reason, in short supply. You can always buy cigarettes or alcohol, however, even in this day and age, occasionally the weed can be “sold out” in some areas.

During these periods, recreational users are quite happily abstinent and for this reason, we believe, most users can be taught to relieve themselves of both a marijuana and a cigarette habit relatively easily.

Stop smoking weed for just two weeks

Those wishing to engage in our program need to give up weed first. They can drink alcohol, they can smoke cigarettes but they won’t be able to do cannabis as complete concentration is required.

“Stop Smoking – The Essential Guide” review

This is a review of a fantastic little book on quitting smoking called “Stop Smoking – The Essential Guide” by Simon Daubney.

Stop_Smoking the-essential-guide

Simon had a habit of smoking more than 30 cigarettes a day (as I did), and as you may imagine, had struggled a great deal to try and stop. Simon has written down his personal experiences along his journey of quitting cigarettes into words. He has also researched the subject deeply and his hard work will now benefit others who read this book.

Around 100,000 people die each year in the UK alone due to smoking related illnesses like cancer and heart attacks. It is always best to take advice from an expert or someone who has quit smoking cigarettes after seemingly thoroughly addicted. Simon Daubney has experienced the highs and lows of quitting smoking, and his book can help with his own experiences.

I don’t have much faith in the nicotine replacement products marketed by the large pharmaceutical companies. They are mentioned in the publication but he also concentrates on common sense, home-grown experience to guide you through a successful quit.

There is much detail on picking a quit date and a diary and forms for you to fill in to gauge how you’re getting on and your improvement while quitting.

Another interesting section of the book explored the thought processes behind giving up. For example, the arguments for smoking are explored. Statements such as “smoking relives boredom” and “I need to smoke to combat stress”. Daubney forces you to examine these beliefs and challenges you to think about them to see if they are really true.

Similarly, the negative thoughts after quitting are explored. The author impresses upon us to observe our negative thoughts and explore their validity. Usually, if one does this, you can see that the negative thought is not really based in reality and can evaporate after applying logic and seeing how the thought process developed.

There are large sections in the book that explain how to deal with weight gain and increased stress after stopping smoking.

The book is obviously written for the UK market as there are lots of references to the NHS, etc. I hope that the non-UK readers of this site can get hold of a copy easily as the book contains some great facts about smoking addiction as well as some great tips about how to combat it.

How to get someone to stop smoking

I get a lot of emails and letters from people concerned about their wife, girlfriend, husband, boyfriend, teenage daughter, teenage son, father, mother. All wanting to know the same thing: how to get someone to stop smoking.

how to get someone to stop smoking
Families play an important role in getting the smoker to stop and yet they can be counter-productive

Because very often it is the smoker’s loved ones who actually seem to worry more about the smoking habit. I say “seem to worry more” because very often the smoker is very worried about their smoking habit. They are the ones waking up coughing and in terrible pain, after all. But very often smokers will not seem to be worried. But don’t be fooled. This may just be a coping mechanism.

The first step in trying to get a loved one to stop smoking is the most important step and it’s all about communication.

Talk to them

However, this is easier said than done. Because the last thing you want to do is to stress the smoker or put any pressure on them to quit. This will only make the situation worse. And yet you have to talk. Before we discuss how to talk to a smoker let’s see why we’re talking with the smoker.

What is the purpose of the conversation with the smoker:

  • Find out if they want to quit. Try to gauge how important to the smoker it is to give up cigarettes is. It’s essential that there is a desire to quit.
  • Find out why they want to quit. This is very important. Eliciting the reasons for giving up shows the smoker the need to do so.
  • Find out what has stopped them so far. Have they quit before but relapsed? Or even if not, this will give you fantastic information about what to look out for when they actually try to give up again.
  • To offer your help. There is a limit to what you can do but it’s important that you make the smoker aware that you are there for them. You can buy healthy fruit and snacks for them to eat while they’re giving up. You can enjoy certain hobbies together to take place of the smoking, for example exercise.

So, as you can see from the above, the conversation with the smoker is more about listening than talking. This is extremely important. There is a real limit to your ability to persuade the smoker against smoking. The smoker is probably more aware than you of the damaging consequences of their habit and they don’t need to be reminded of them all the time. This can be counter-productive.

That is why it is better to listen to the smoker rather than to preach. Ask the questions “why do you want to give up”, “how will you give up” and “what’s stopped you giving up before” in a non-accusatory manner. You will never get someone to stop smoking by arguing with them. Period. This goes for whoever we’re talking about, a friend, a parent, a kid.

Lead by example

You can point the smoker towards all the help and advice on how to give up smoking there is.

A lot of the advice will center around increasing exercise, eating well, drinking water and meditation. So, it would be a good idea if you practice and show the benefits of leading a smoke free life yourself to show your loved one the way forward.

This will be 10 times more effective than trying to get someone to stop smoking with words. Get someone to stop smoking with actions.

So, increase your weekly exercise routine, purchase and eat healthier foods, drink more water and less alcohol and, if you like, meditate.

Do this in front of the smoker but don’t explain why.

If the smoker asks, you can explain the benefits of exercise, good eating and drinking and meditation. Explain to them how great you feel. But don’t say it’s because you don’t smoke cigarettes. They will put 2 and 2 together!

How to get someone to stop smoking

So the best way to get someone to stop smoking is to listen to them and then indulge in activities and enjoy them in a way that they can’t until they stop smoking.

Quitting Cigarettes – Help and Advice

You want to quit cigarettes? What do you do? Whose advice do you take? What should you do? I remember all these things running through my head when I decided to give up and the multitude of sites, books and advice in this area is staggering, contradictory and, quite frankly, off-putting to the potential ex-smoker.

So I’ve decided to collate the best advice here.

What the experts say isn’t always true – trust yourself

The first piece of advice is this – don’t take everything you’ve heard on the subject as gospel truth. There are many reasons for this:

  • Cigarette manufacturers are a hugely powerful lobbying force in north American and western European governments. It will not benefit them financially if you give up. So it is in their interests to obfuscate the anti-smoking message and downplay the harm that cigarettes can cause. They have been doing this for years and haven’t stopped now that the cat’s out of the bag and everybody knows that smoking’s bad.
  • Pfizer is one of the largest companies in the world and they happen to manufacture most of the cigarette cessation aids (patches, gum). If you think that you can only give up smoking with one of their products, you may be right, but they have spent countless billions of dollars trying to persuade you that this is true.
  • There is money to be made if you stay smoking; there is money to be made if you give up smoking. A lot of websites that claim to help you are actually poorly disguised feeder sites for certain products. Here, I recommend products but I also offer a free course in how to give up smoking by self-hypnosis that won’t cost you a penny!

“Pick a quit date”; “tell everybody about it”; “throw away your cigarettes”; “chew gum/wear patches” are just some of the pieces of advice that prove totally wrong for me!

What works for someone may not work for you. So, don’t worry, if you read that you’re going to have a terrible time giving up … it might not be true!

Keep busy

I’m not exaggerating: giving up smoking may well be the best thing you’ve ever done. It may lead to a new chapter in your live that you will look back on as one of the happiest periods of your life!

But you’re going to say goodbye to a habit – a part of your life – that’s been with you for a long time. So you’re going to have to replace it with something.

So, quickly, get a piece of paper out and write down 5 new habits/hobbies you can replace smoking with and try to do them all when you stop smoking. Here are some suggestions:

  • Do more exercise (the best, best thing you can do!)
  • Start creating more healthy and exotic recipes in the kitchen
  • Read more books about … (insert subject that’s of interest to you)
  • Look up some old friends you’ve been meaning to call
  • Watch less TV

OK, the last one is more of a negative than a positive new habit. But it’s a good one!

natural-girl-model
Smokers are often bemused by the amount of information about giving up cigarettes

Think about triggers

What sets you off wanting a cigarette? Drinking alcohol, going to bars, meeting certain people? Try to avoid these triggers for the first few months.

Breathing

You can make positive suggestions to yourself whilst concentrating on your breathing. Try this. Similarly, if you get the urge to smoke, quietly take a moment to yourself to breath deeply and concentrate on the sensation of breathing, the feeling in your lungs, mouth, etc. It works, trust me!

Drink water

Similar to the above, just a glass of water can be enough to stop cravings sometimes.

Remember the feeling the last time you had a smokers cough or cold

The next time you reach to take a cigarette out of the packet, remember the pain smoking has caused you.

What is Nicotine Addiction? And What Can We Do About It?

There are many facets of nicotine addiction. Here are some of them:

  • Behavioural dependence. If you are young, cigarettes may be used to make you look older. Tobacco is seen as something that makes life more enjoyable, like a “pat on the back” or reward after accomplishing something.
  • Physical need for nicotine. For some people the hardest barrier to overcome when giving up smoking is the physical addiction. Your body responds to the nicotine it has taken and naturally feels something is missing after it is taken away. Smokers will naturally adjust their bodies without even thinking about it. They may smoke more than they normally would before boarding a long-haul flight. Like heroine, nicotine is physically addictive and, like heroine, there can be tremendous physical and mental hardships to endure when quitting.
  • Part of your day to day life. Smoking quickly develops into a habit. It provides rituals and patterns in your day to day existence which are really hard to break.

These facets quickly form a vicious circle. The nicotine “hit” which you experience within 7 to 14 seconds of taking your first drag can have a huge “beneficial” effect of feeling high and reducing anxiety. However, these effects are soon diminished as more nicotine is required to experience the same levels of arousal.

And so it goes on, you require more nicotine, you smoke more, you get more addicted. This is why a 2 or 3 a day smoker rapidly becomes a pack a day smoker.

Along with the addiction comes the health issues we all know well enough. There is the immediate physical pain that is associated with smoking as well. And, don’t forget, there are tremendous mental challenges to overcome when dealing with a nicotine addiction – sometimes a lack of self-worth, a feeling of helplessness, isolation, dependency, etc., etc.

But all is not lost, there is something you can do about it

With all this negativity around smoking and all this evidence as to the seriousness of nicotine addiction, it’s a wonder anyone ever gives up!

But people do quit smoking. In fact, only about 20% of adults in the UK smoke nowadays. After the war, it was only 20% who didn’t smoke! Quite a turnaround!

So, gradually bit by bit, people did conquer smoking. It didn’t happen overnight in a flash and a bang. But, quietly and assuredly, men and women just like you in their millions turned their backs on nicotine and went on to enjoy their smoking-free lives.

The problem is there are many ways to quit cigarettes. There’s not one over-arching and definitive solution to this addiction. And, meanwhile, there’s a lot of misinformation out there. Huge billion dollar multi-national companies spend fortunes on advertising saying that chewing nicotine gum will help you whereas evidence suggests that most people quit cold turkey and they don’t make a huge song and dance about it.

I gave up easily. I woke up one morning and didn’t smoke a cigarette like I usually did. However, I had been meditating for a few weeks beforehand.

I can teach you what I did. I’ve had a lot of successes with other people so far.

If you want to find out how, enter your email in the box below and I’ll send you the information pack consisting of a PDF e-book, an MP3 plus a series of emails – all for free – which will help you use self-hypnosis to quit cigarettes now!

How I stopped smoking

I had been smoking for a very long time, longer than I care to remember. I must have been a young lad, no older than 7, when other kids had stolen cigarettes from their fathers and brought them in to school for everyone to smoke. It was during these times that I took up the habit.

I almost lost my life to it when last year I was told by my doctor that my arteries and lungs were worsening and that action had to be taken as quickly as possible. I walked away feeling increasingly stressed and worried about what I was doing to my family. Suddenly, years of nagging by my wife to give up had more of a bearing, and I realised that to turn my life around I would need to turn the weaknesses in my life into my strengths.

Everyone who’s quit smoking has a story to tell…

The number one tool in achieving anything of note in life is willpower; without this no task can be accomplished. I had to dig deep and show resolve and character, and I also came up (with the help of my wife) a unique idea in helping me do this.

I took a three step approach to quitting smoking;

  1. I dipped all of my cigarettes in the rubbish before putting them back in the packet. When I absolutely could not resist a cigarette anymore, I took one out, lit it and took a drag; the actual disgusting feeling almost made me puke, and this helped because my mind created a cognitive dissonance with the product, I no longer looked forward to smoking cigarettes. This is similar to how pets are trained, and works along the theories used by marketers in advertising.
  2. Weaning oneself off cigarettes or any addictive habit is a tough process, but products that are not as bad are a good half way house in doing so. I used electronic cigarettes to get rid of the tobacco in cigarettes then nicotine free electronic cigarettes to get rid of the nicotine too so eventually it was just a physical habit without any side effects.
  3. This is the somewhat innovative idea. On all of my cigarette packets, I placed passport sized images of my wife and kids on them so that each time I looked at the packet I would feel the guilt, and realise each time what was most important in life.

Doing all of these things was great for me because I have come out of this a stronger person, I now feel that if I train my mind with self-belief and courage then I can achieve anything.

My doctor is happier for it, my wife and kids are happier for it, and I’m happier and healthier for it.

This is a guest post by Jonathan Woodbell the first ever on this site

Every smoker is different and everyone gives up in a different way. For example, I didn’t need will-power and I didn’t use electronic cigarettes or any other replacement therapy. I particularly like the ideas of dipping the cigarettes in the trash and putting photos of your loved ones inside the cellophane of the packet.

Yes, It Is Possible To Quit Smoking

Lots of people these days want to lead a healthier lifestyle. They try to change their food intake, physical activities, habits, and other aspects of day-to-day living. For many, there are really bad habits that are hard to break. One of these is smoking. And, contrary to popular opinion, stopping smoking cigarettes is can be achieved quickly and easily.

Many people are trying to choose a healthier lifestyle

You may be aware through the media that people have to suffer horrible withdrawal symptoms when quitting smoking. Many people are afraid to even take the first step when deciding to stop smoking because of the fear of the withdrawal symptoms. To overcome this, today’s market is now filled with different cigarette substitutes and other medications to help ease the transition from being a smoker to an ex-smoker.

First of all, quitting can be easy. It may be difficult for some; but, make no mistake, it can be easy for a great many people. It may include a straightforward desire to stop smoking and a conscious effort to keep cigarettes away from you. While it is important to keep cigarettes out of sight as much as possible it is also helpful to have a strong support system that includes family, friends, and co-workers who are committed to helping the smoker break the bad habit. They also help to cope with the withdrawal symptoms. These methods have been proven to be effective ways to motivate a person to stop.

Another way to stop smoking cigarettes is to take pills that reduce the pleasure of smoking. Over time as these pills take effect, smokers will feel and realize that there is really no point in continuing this habit. In addition, nicotine gum and patches are recommended by some (but not by me!). These contain smaller amounts of nicotine compared to the actual nicotine content of cigarettes. The intake of these gums and the use of patches must be reduced as weeks go by until such a time that the smoker is comfortable not having his or her nicotine fix anymore.

Smokers are encouraged to replace this bad habit with another habit that is more positive such as regular exercise. Whenever an urge to smoke is felt, smokers who are in the process of quitting can look for something else to do. Getting into an exercise program would be a good way to relieve withdrawal stress instead of lighting up a cigarette. Also, the money that might have been spent on a pack of cigarettes could be put away into a piggy bank.

There are many of the common sense suggestions like those above that many smokers have heard over and over. But, my experience of quitting was an extremely pleasurable one. I quit smoking easily in one day by using meditation and self-hypnosis. In order to learn how, fill in your email address in the box and receive a free e-book and MP3 that will explain everything.

7 Effects of Light Smoking

“Oh no, I don’t smoke! I only smoke socially!” How many times have you heard these sentences uttered or have you actually spoken them yourself? If you’ve been finding yourself having just a few cigarettes per day, these potential effects might change your mind.

cigarette

Developing an Addiction

Despite the fact that you are only smoking a few cigarettes, you could develop an addiction to them. One or two cigarettes now could quickly develop into a pack per day, and then you are going to be susceptible to all of the same problems as regular smokers.

Wasting Your Money

No matter how many cigarettes you smoke per day, you are still spending money on them. Let’s say that you spend just $10 per week on your habit. At the end of the year, you could have saved an additional $520 instead. This could go to healthy snacks, tuition, daycare or even entertainment (really, $500 might be the difference between having any extra cash to have fun or not).

Heart Disease

In a study entitled “Health Effects of Light and Intermittent Smoking” by Rebecca E. Schane, MD, Pamela M. Ling, MD, MPH and Stanton A. Glantz, PhD it is stated that a person who smokes lightly has pretty much the same risk for heart disease as an individual who smokes on a regular basis.

Lung Cancer

When we look at the effects of cigarette smoking, it’s impossible to avoid the topic of lung cancer. This is especially important, considering that the same study does report that individuals who smoke regularly have a much higher risk of the disease than those who smoke lightly; however, the latter group is still at higher risk than the rest of the population.

Wasting Time

In addition to spending unnecessary money, going outside for a few cigarette breaks each day is a waste of your time. Imagine that you smoke four cigarettes per day, and you take ten minute breaks each time. That is 40 minutes of every day you can never get back!

Making Excuses

No one wants to become that person who is constantly making excuses about how much or how little he or she smokes. When you do just a little, you are becoming that individual. Furthermore, you will need to explain yourself to the children in your life, and you can absolutely come across as a poor role model for them. They will see you smoking and might believe that it is completely okay to do. Furthermore, never forget that making unhealthy choices now also makes your future offspring (and theirs) more likely to develop bad health.

Mortality Rate

The aforementioned study also discusses rates of death in individuals who choose to smoke lightly. The authors write, “The risk of all-cause mortality in intermittent male smokers is significantly increased (OR=1.6, 95% CI 1.3–2.1) when compared to nonsmoking men (31). Among women, light smoking resulted in a 4–6 year median loss of life when compared to nonsmoking women.” Even when you choose to smoke lightly, you can increase your chance of an early death.

Many people assume that if they partake in a harmful activity only sometimes, they are not really causing any serious damage to themselves. From reading the above information, you now know that’s not true, especially when it comes to smoking.

Smoking cigarettes is a hard habit to break – many try to give up smoking more than once. However, stopping smoking can give you this single biggest benefit to your live that you will ever experience. People will tell you that you won’t be able to give up smoking.

Smoking tips given by the experts don’t always help every smoker. For example, picking a quit date and telling everyone may force a certain type of person to give up in order to save face however with other people this will cause unnecessary stress making relapse more likely. However, there are some tips on how to give up smoking which are universal.

give up smoking to enjoy the sun and the earth

Hypnotherapy uses suggestion to implant commands into your subconscious mind. Since addiction is always a result of the subconscious rather than the conscious, hypnotherapy is seen as a powerful aid to quitting cigarettes. Hypnotherapy can be used to stop cravings, reduce over-eating and diminish or stop other side-effects as well as start the cessation process. You don’t have to search out an expensive hypnotherapist in your area – you can download hypnotherapy MP3s now and hypnotise yourself.

Eat healthily. As your taste improves it may be an idea to purchase different fruits and vegetables to explore the different tastes your palette can now appreciate. There is a worry about gaining weight when you give up cigarettes as the appetite can improve. In order to anticipate the increase in appetite, try sugar-free gum, vegetable, fruit and healthy foods. Don’t increase your intake of fatty or sugary foods. You may see this as swapping one bad habit for another and this will cause negative thinking.

Get fit. Your losing a habit when you give up smoking. Why not replace it with another one? The best habit to take up at this time is one that involved fresh air and exercise. As your lungs will start to benefit from giving up smoking so you will notice an increase ability to sustain physical exercise for longer periods. The positive proof of the benefits of giving up cigarettes so early in the process would decrease the risk of relapse. Get on your bike, go running, go the gym, play sports, walk more … whatever your favorite method of exercise is, do more of it!

Take it one moment at a time. Don’t look into the future as a long, long time without a cigarette. Look at time as the present. The future is only made up of millions of “nows” anyway. You had plenty of happy “nows” as a smoker without a cigarette – so there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy a moment without a cigarette as a non-smoker. Periods of withdrawal went you want or crave cigarettes only last for a few moments. It’s important you get through these moments. Mark off each successful day on a calendar. Look at it when you feel tempted to smoke, and tell yourself that you don’t want to start all over again.

Quitting smoking tips for some

Start a 7-day program. Quitting cigarettes can be easier if a timed structure is enabled for you to do so. This way certain “danger moments” of relapse are pre-emptied and curtailed. Programs can take just a few minutes a day, and are ready to follow a simple yet powerful plan of action, you can give up cigarettes and get on track to a better, healthier life. Programs can also supply you with info packs that include powerful secrets, tricks and tactics to help you on your journey.

Write a list of the reasons to stop and keep it with you. Refer to it when tempted to smoke.

Set a date for stopping, and stop completely. This doesn’t work for everybody but can for some. Likewise getting rid of ashtrays, lighters, and cigarettes from the house can further finalize your decision.

Tell everyone that you are quitting cigarettes. Friends and family can help you and offer support. A ‘group’ effort may be easier than going it on your own.

How to give up smoking and stay given up

I hope you found a few of these ideas helpful. Smoking is a hard habit to break but with positivity, good will and a mind shift towards becoming a better person, it can be the best thing you’ve ever done!

The Link Between Ectopic Pregnancy and Smoking

According to the NHS Choices website, Women who smoke are twice as likely to develop an ectopic pregnancy in comparison to those who are non-smokers.

An ectopic pregnancy can be described as an ‘Out-of-Place Pregnancy.’ A serious cause for concern and occurring in around one in sixty pregnancies, suspected Ectopic Pregnancies require immediate medical attention.

Pregnant woman without ectopic pregnancy

Rather than developing within the womb, an ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilised egg implants elsewhere; often within the fallopian tubes. The consequences being, that the egg will not develop as normal into a baby, with potentially devastating psychological and physical effects to the mother.

Regrettably, in all cases the untreated continuation of an ectopic pregnancy would be fatal. The fertilised egg would continue to grow, causing a rupture within the fallopian tube, splitting open, causing potentially fatal internal bleeding.

A clear link has been discovered, proving a causal relationship between smoking and Ectopic Pregnancies. Scientists found that a chemical in cigarette smoke triggers a reaction a reaction within the fallopian tubes, increasing the levels of protein. This protein raises the risk of the egg implanting outside the womb, resulting in an ectopic pregnancy.

It is crucial that an ectopic pregnancy is diagnosed as promptly as possible. Delays to diagnosis and treatment increases the chances of the fallopian tubes being irrevocably damaged, leading to future fertility issues and a raised chance of further ectopic pregnancies. As an ectopic pregnancy continues there is also a higher risk of a rupture leading to internal bleeding.

It is important to bear in mind that if you suspect you have an ectopic pregnancy, urgent medical treatment should be sought. The consequences of an ectopic pregnancy rupture can be far reaching, with risks associated with future health and fertility.

Giving up smoking has countless benefits, both for the individual and for those close to them, many of which have been previously discussed in detail on this website. However, with this in mind, it is still important to consider the benefits that are not quite as well publicised.

For many people, the safeguarding of their health and fertility is a clear priority. With the link between cigarettes and ectopic pregnancies clear, there has never been a better reason to stop smoking!
