There are three main ways of ‘how to stop smoking weed’. If you want to choose the best way, you must consider these two factors: (1) how often and long you have been using marijuana and (2) how much you can afford to spend in order to help yourself quit smoking the weed.
If you are a moderate to heavy user, you should consider getting professional help from a psychiatrist/medical doctor or through into an inpatient rehabilitation program and/or use E-programs that are offered on-line. The amount of money you can afford (or intend to) spend will play a significant role in the decision you make.
A few of words about each of the options.
1. Quit Cold Turkey.
According Wikipedia, “cold turkey” is the action of a person giving up a habit/addiction all at once, rather than easing the process through gradual reduction or by using replacement medication.
For the light marijuana users, ‘cold turkey’ way may work as smoking weed is more a habit than an addictive habit. In most cases, light users do not experience withdrawal symptoms such as cravings, anger and/or anxiety. The amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”) stored in the fat body cells is not significant. This makes quitting easier than for heavy users.
On the other hand, beating the smoking weed habit may be a big challenge for some. If you feel your willpower is strong enough to stop smoking marijuana cold turkey, you should create your own plan and follow it to the letter.
1. Throw away all your weed paraphernalia such as lighters, bongs, etc,
2. Replace your old smoking habits with new activities such as exercises, sex, other hobbies, etc.,
3. Reassess your relationship with people who continue smoking marijuana, and/or
4. Join a support group.
2. Use professional help and/or join an inpatient rehabilitation program.
If you are a moderate to heavy marijuana smoker, going “cold turkey” is highly unadvisable as it may lead to serious health issues.
Moderate to heavy users may encounter withdrawal symptoms such as strong cravings, sleeplessness, anger, anxiety, depression, etc. This may dramatically affect their everyday lives such as creating problems at their job through like lack of concentration and ability to control emotions – resulting in poor job performance.
You can visit a psychiatrist or medical doctor and request a prescription to reduce your withdrawal symptoms. However, you need to check if your insurance company covers such expenses. If it does not, you may incur high medical bills.
Another option is to use an inpatient rehabilitation program. Unfortunately, most of the rehabilitation programs are very expensive and not easy to do. Moreover, you not only have to pay for the inpatient rehabilitation program, but you also have to take time off work.
