The Essential of Quitting Smoking

Even the question of “should I quit smoking weed?” might be hard for some people to reckon with since popular thinking has it that weed is not harmful or addictive. This way of thinking then leads people to believe that there are no legitimate reasons to quit smoking weed. Except, there are reasons to quit smoking weed. Some of them include:

  • A numbness toward life and feelings
  • Increased paranoia
  • Low to non-existent functionality
  • Social isolation and alienation
  • Severe hallucinations

These are just some of the adverse psychological effects of frequent and prolonged marijuana use. If we start to talk about the adverse physical effects, they include:

  • Respiratory problems
  • Short and long-term memory loss
  • Increased heart rate
  • Developmental problems, especially in teenagers

Any discussion on the reasons people quit smoking weed should begin with the acknowledgment of the existence of marijuana dependency. No less an authority than the New England Journal of Medicine, as recently as 2014, has stated that “Despite some contentious discussions regarding the addictiveness of marijuana, the evidence clearly indicates that long-term marijuana use can lead to addiction.”

So now that we have established that there are excellent reasons to quit marijuana, let’s go through some of the ways people use to finally get themselves down from the marijuana high.
