A Self-test For Pot Addiction

These 12 questions can help you find out if you have an addiction problem with marijuana (pot). If you answered yes to any one of the above questions, you may have a problem with marijuana.

1. Has smoking pot stopped being fun?

Not always. Sometimes when I binge it is very depressing. I feel like I have to finish it all so that I can quit, then I go buy more and the cycle repeats.

2. Do you plan your life around you smoking marijuana?

Yes. I plan when I can get high, when I need to be sober, and marijuana plays a role in many of my social relationships.

3. Do you ever get high by yourself?

I would guess I get high by myself 95% of the time.

4. When your pot supply is almost gone, are you worried about how to get more?

Yes. I hide roaches, search for crumbs, call everyone I know, scrape bowls, etc etc.

5. Do you smoke pot to help you deal with you feelings?

I would say I smoke pot to NOT deal with my feelings. Naturally, this makes me feel worse. You become what you ignore.

6. Is it hard for you to think about your life without marijuana?

Yes. As I write this, I have a slight craving. It has been a big part of 1/3 of my life.

7. Do you find that you choose your friends based on your marijuana use?

Yes. Most friends are / were smokers.

8. Do you smoke marijuana to avoid facing your problems?

Yes. I use it as a procrastination tool – I avoid problems, responsibilities and commitments.

9. Has your use of marijuana caused problems with your memory, concentration, or motivation?

Yes. My short term memory is poor, concentration isn’t much better and I am so lazy. I really need to change.

10. Does your marijuana use let you live in a privately defined world?

Yes. But it is my world, and I define it, it is safe and I like it there.

11. Have you ever not kept promises you made to yourself to cut down or control your pot smoking?

Yes. This is the reason I started this blog. I need to explore these feelings more and keep myself honest.

12. Have your friends or relatives ever complained that your pot smoking is causing problems with your relationship with them?

Only one friend has ever mentioned it. I keep it very discrete and really do exist in a private world.


If you answered yes to any one of the above questions, you may have a problem with marijuana.

What happens if I answer yes to all 12? I guess I am in big trouble then. This was a good task and forces me to accept that I am addicted to cannabis. I am a drug addict. Damn, that is pretty heavy. I have hardly admitted it to myself over the last 5 years, let alone written it down.
