Weed effects include losing interest in health, life, school activities, old friends and goals. But the use of weed creates a lowered awareness that very often prevents a user from being able to see the negative effects it is having on them.
When the effects of weed use are present, a student may fail in school; an employee may lose interest in his or her job. Old drug-free friends may be replaced with new, drug-using friends. But because of the lower awareness, the person is likely to continue to abuse the drug despite the damage being created.
Some of the most common effects of using weed are:
Loss of movitation
Inability to think clearly
The following provides further information on the phsyical and mental effects of weed.
One of the most distinctive effects of weed use is the loss of motivation. Students lose interest in school perhaps in part because their ability to think clearly becomes impaired. They may struggle to remember things they are trying to learn. Long-term use is associated with a condition that includes apathy, impairment of judgment, lower ability to concentrate and loss of motivation and ambition. This condition may be accompanied by panic attacks and confusion.
The chronic user may feel that life is just passing him or her by.
There is a distinct pattern to withdrawal from weed after use has become chronic. The recovering person will be irritable, may be depressed, may have sleeping problems. He or she is sure to crave the drug.
But once weed abuse becomes chronic or addictive, it can and does ruin some people's lives. The family who loves and wants to help this person needs to have a reliable, effective way to deal with the problem.
