Cravings this hurdle we all face when we decide to quit smoking weed. I believe that it’s not the act of smoking that you crave, it is the mental state that goes along with getting high when you smoke. Many people who try to quit smoking weed after a period of heavy use, are surprised by the strength of the cravings they feel. Cravings can control you behavior. You may find yourself calling your dealer, or going to doing activities that are likely to expose you to it, even though you have decided to quit. It is different for everybody. Some people constantly think about pot, some people go out of their way to get it, and some people cave in to the withdrawal symptoms after a couple of days of insomnia and anxiety.
