If you’re looking for info on how to stop smoking weed this is probably a good place to start.

While marijuana has been highly popularized these days, you may have seen for yourself that it’s not all that it’s cracked up to be.

Sure, people take drugs to feel better, but in the long run are the side effects really worth it? The paranoia, the inability to function like you used to, the distorted view of life? Or the restlessness you feel when you can’t get it, and having to use it just to feel okay? That’s all in addition to some of the very real negative physical and mental effects of the drug.

Marijuana, while giving short term relief from whatever unwanted condition you face, is a highly toxic drug with many side effects. Today weed has a much higher potency than years ago and some people are experiencing really bad effects from it.

Steps You Can Take

  1. If you want to get off weed, the first step is deciding to do so. Then take a few steps in the right direction.
  2. Change your habits. If you hang around with friends who smoke weed, find other people to do things with who aren’t using it.
  3. Build yourself up nutritionally. This will help with the withdrawal symptoms. Drugs rob the body of vitamins and minerals, particularly B complex, vitamin C and calcium and magnesium.

Find some activities you like to do, maybe something you enjoyed before you started using. Get out and see the world you’ve been missing in the drug induced haze.

What to Expect When You Stop Smoking Weed

There are withdrawal symptoms when a person stops smoking marijuana. Since they are not as dramatic as heroin withdrawal symptoms, some people think they do not exist. Some people experience irritability, sleeping difficulties, depression, night sweats and loss of appetite. Some also suffer anxiety and fatigue.

Some people can overcome these symptoms and get through it on their own. Some can’t and need help. Even if they get off the drug for awhile, they go back to it as they are still faced with the same problems and difficulties that led them to using it in the first place.

Leave Weed Addiction Behind for Good

Marijuana is a powerful drug, more so today than ever. There may be a relationship between this and addiction. If you can’t seem to do it on your own, the Narconon program can help. We’ve been helping people get off marijuana for decades.

The Narconon program has an important step which helps a person leave drug use behind for good. Drugs residues can store in the fat tissues indefinitely, especially fat soluble chemicals like THC. These can later reactivate in the person’s body and cause them to crave the drug again. The Narconon New Life Detoxification is specifically designed to get rid of the drug toxins lodged in your body.

Using a sauna, nutrition and moderate daily exercise, this program helps the body release these toxins and flush them from the body. Those completing this step often talk about how much clearer they can think and how much more energetic they feel, once the toxic residues are gone. And many report that they no longer even think about using drugs.

Regain Your Abilities and Purpose in Life

That is not the only thing the Narconon program offers. There are reasons a person started smoking marijuana and those reasons may still exist. Some problem the drug solved for them, whether its upsets, fears, anxieties or other problems the person did not know how to deal with. It could be simply boredom and no real direction or goals in life.

In the later steps of the Narconon program, each person gains life skills that enable him to go after what he wants in life. He or she learns how to deal with situations that previously led him or her to drug use.

If you need help getting off marijuana, the Narconon program might be the answer. Thousands of people have gotten off weed and other drugs through the Narconon program. Give us a call.
