Motivation will take you from thinking about quitting to actually doing it.  Desire will push you through setbacks, hard-times and cravings.

My Weed Addiction...

Hi I'm John Mckee.  Welcome to QuitMarijuana.Org.

Since 2008, I've taught thousands of people how to quit smoking weed and break their marijuana addiction.  If you think you need to quit smoking weed, I am here to help you.

I know the frustration and shame of being addicted to weed and the struggle to quit.  In fact, I spent nearly 10 years stoned morning, noon and night. I smoked just to fall asleep sleep, only to wake up and do it all over again.  I became anti-social, gained weight, and lost that spark in life.  I wasn't getting 'high' anymore. I was barely getting by.  I had sunk into the deep, dark pit of dependence and stayed there for years.

Deep in my heart, I knew had to stop smoking weed everyday, all day.

When I quit, I got control of my life back and my self-esteem skyrocketed.

A couple months after stopping, I was my old self again.  My confidence and self-esteem skyrocketed once weed was out of my system.  Truth is, if I hadn't stopped, I wouldn't have got unstuck, got promoted or got married.  Weed was making me dream big but took away my desire to make the dreams come true.  

Why do I smoke so much weed?

Take some time to think deeply about why you smoke, and go more than the first layer deep.  Some of use smoke to relieve stress, or to escape our current reality.   You might smoke because it's now a habit; get home from work and first thing you do is light up.

Understanding why you smoke is going to help you quit.   For example, if you smoke to relieve your stress, you are going to need to find new, healthier activities to burn off your stress.   If you smoke because of past trauma in your life, you have to consider other ways to work on that trauma without resorting to weed.

Here's an example from my life:  One of the reasons I smoked was because I had a low self-esteem and smoking made me part of a group of people that was easy to fit in with.   Joining the circle and passing a joint eased my social anxiety and helped me to feel like I was part of the group.

Ultimately, it wasn't until I quit that I was able to confront my social anxiety and manage it.  I'm still a little awkward in large groups, but hey, who isn't?

Defeating Cravings, Triggers and Temptations

Weed Cravings CycleCravings, temptations, moments of weakness;  whatever you want to call them, these are the reasons you slip-up or relapse despite knowing that you want to be sober and quit for good.

Over time, you've become conditioned to smoke at certain times, with certain people, or when when you experience a trigger that makes you smoke.  You'll learn to identify your triggers, respond to them without smoking weed, and become more aware of yourself in the process.

In the Quit Weed 30 Day Action plan, there are multiple lessons that help you identify your cravings and triggers then help you develop the techniques you need to stay strong.   Everyone has different triggers, so tracking these and developing strategies for each one is the best path forward.


Prepare for Marijuana Withdrawal Symptoms

Marijuana withdrawal is real.   The most common symptoms are Insomnia, night sweats, irritability, lost of appetite, and depression.

A recent study out of University of Illinois proves you may already know:  Withdrawal can be so severe that you will smoke to relieve the symptoms.  No surprise there, but it's nice to see that science is catching up to what I've been writing about since 2007.    There's no magic pill to relieve withdrawal, but there are natural remedies you can include in your quitting plan that will significantly reduce withdrawal symptoms.  A detailed list of recommendations is included in the Members Area.
