I want to share my top 4 tips to stop smoking weed. Many people who decided they want to stop smoking weed have no idea where to begin.   I’ll be honest with you, it can take some work, and some mental strength, but the end result is totally worth it.

Set a Date to Stop Smoking Pot.

You need to set a quit date.  This is to allow yourself to get totally prepared to quit smoking marijuana. Your quit date should be an actual date. It should not be when your stash runs out, or roughly a week before the next semester of school starts, or next month. It is important to nail down the date. In my personal experience, before I learned to set a date that I would stop, I used to smoke my stash as quickly as possible. I did this because I convinced myself that each bag was my last bag. When my bag ran out, I would buy another one, and smoke it just as quickly, convincing myself that it was also the last bag. Does this sound familiar? I recommend setting your quit date, within one month of the current date. If you wait any longer, you are less likely to follow through with your goal. It is a great idea to set your quit date just before a vacation begins, or other major event. Quitting Marijuana is a lifestyle change. If you attach it to another lifestyle change, you are more likely to be successful.

Understand Why You Are Addicted.

Marijuana addiction is a controversial topic because people fail to differentiate between a physical addiction and a psychological addiction. While marijuana has physical withdrawal symptoms similar to that of cigarettes, it is the psychological aspect of the addiction but most users struggle with. Long-term marijuana smokers are in the habit of smoking pot every day and are used to being in a stoned mindset. While you do not have a physical need for marijuana, you do have a mental need to get high. that’s the tricky thing about it. It’s not that you’re addicted to marijuana, it’s that your mentally addicted to being high. the more we smoke, the more our brains get used to being high, and the more we crave that state of mind. he will go through a mental battle when you stop smoking weed. You need to prepare for battle.

Stop Smoking Weed by Getting Rid of Your Gear

Marijuana smokers have lots of great gadgets. You may want to give all of your supplies to friends, or you may wish to throw them away or break them as a symbol of your resolve to stop smoking weed. Whatever you do, clean your environment so that there is no trace of marijuana or of marijuana related equipment. Cravings are easier to resist when there is nothing immediately in front of you. People will do some strange things to get stoned, including smoking pipe resin, checking the cushions for weed crumbs and roaches, or even digging through the trash to find the last scraps they threw away. I will admit, I have done all of these things in the past.

Be prepared for Marijuana Withdrawal.

Not being prepared for marijuana withdrawal is the number one reason that people fail to quit smoking. If you’ve got a quit date set, you’re already ahead of the game, because you know when you will be going through withdrawal, and you’ll be prepared. Anxiety is very common in the first stages of withdrawal. For example, you have probably been through a time when you just run out of pot and have made plans to get more but it didn’t work out. You are on edge and jittery until you can secure a new supply, or at least get stoned. Multiply this by 10 times, you will have an idea of what the anxiety can be like if you are unprepared to quit for good. Insomnia and loss of appetite are also common in the first week of quitting. Do your research on what withdrawal will be like so that you can be mentally prepared to face these problems when they arise after you quit smoking weed.

      Nice Tips! Especially to set a date is a really important point.
      A little known fact about marijuana is that it actually does have slight physical addictive properties. The marijuana addiction is psychological, however physical symptoms are present, and with chemicals still in your body your cravings can be much stronger than compared to using detox.

      This ability to stay inside the different organs of your body for an extended period of time is due to “marijuana metabolites” inside your body being fat-soluble. Unlike most other recreational drugs, chemicals in weed are actually stored by your body in your fat cells, metabolized, and then released back into your system through your blood vessels, over time. This the reason why so many people are reprobate. So clean your body from THC. Go in the Gym, eat healhy and drink a lot of water and detox your body for a sucessfully withdrawal.

      One of my family members has had a terrible time giving up weed. He also suffers from BP-1 and his psychiatrist is very sure after years of treatment that THC is terrible for his BP-1, and that the use of weed has made it impossible to get his BP under control.

      My family member is now considering a strategy of smoking THC free-marijuana. He was able to buy it at the local 7-11. He feels it might be a strategy to get off weed if he can smoke and get some “benefits” of CBD. This seems to me to be a slippery slope. For example, would we recommend an alcoholic drink alcohol-free beer to avoid drinking.

      I would like to hear what others think. I do realize that even THC-free weed contains something 1% of the THC is normal weed.
