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.

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.

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.
