It Doesn’t Matter
While it’s true that addiction counselors, therapists and others go through a fairly rigorous process to figure out whether or not they think someone’s addicted to weed, their decision doesn’t really mean much to the user. The label addict is overused and watered down in our society, so simply being told that you’re addicted to weed probably isn’t going to freak you out enough to quit using it. When weed starts causing major problems in your life and then finding that you can’t quit even though you want to is what’ll put a fire under your rear end. And, as you’ll learn on this site, while being called an addict is meh, the underlying processes of addiction are actually pretty scary. Also, knowing how weed and addiction operate on your brain and body probably will gross you out enough help you want to quit. Addiction is complex and sneaky. You will want to learn as much as possible about its nature in order to defeat it, so watch this video.
So you want to quit using weed? Let’s open with some questions you should contemplate to get the ball rolling: When I try to control how much and how often I smoke weed, is it a major fail? The actual amount and frequency don’t matter; the point is whether or not you’re in control. Here’s another question: Do I spend ungodly amounts of time daydreaming about weed? Has weed basically taken over my life?
Yes, Yes, Yes, and Yes
If you answered yes to those questions, you’re in a good mental space place to quit. And not that it matters, but you’re probably addicted to weed. And if you agree with that statement, then you’re really probably addicted because no one really admits to being an addict unless they are. It’s just not done. Well actually, it was done hilariously in a short story called “Intervention” by Elizabeth Crane. You should read it. Addiction lit is great. So you’re an addict? Fine. Things can only go up from here. We’ve got you covered on this site. You’ve taken a step towards recovery, and it is a huge one. Congratulations to you for having the courage to admit that you have a problem. Freeing yourself from addiction won’t be easy, but it can be done. I did it, and if I did it, you can too.
This Site and Why I Created It
The purpose of this site is to help you quit using weed. Try to read the articles in order. They’re arranged the way they’re arranged for a reason. I wrote these articles after years and years of thinking about my addiction to marijuana, both before and after I quit using it. After years of being sober, I can still remember the loss of control I felt with weed. But, to be honest, it was (and still is) a system-wide problem. The problem came to a head with weed, but as I dealt with my addiction to weed, I realized I had other addictive behaviors as well. So, I’ve done a lot of thinking about addiction, and a lot of research as well. I’ve tried to the best of my ability to get down in these articles what I think will help people quit weed. Over the years, I’ve watched a lot of documentaries, read a lot of books, and talked to a lot of people about all kinds of addiction. It sucks and I don’t want others to suffer, and I hope that this comes across in the information I’ve put on this site. My history with weed is in the next article. If I was able to quit, you can too.
