A marijuana addiction program anyone can use

Pot withdrawal symptoms

Lots of people have wondered how to quit smoking marijuana. Some may want to avoid the nasty Marijuana withdrawal symptoms, while others may just want to stop their habit before it becomes worse. Those that are still asking themselves questions like “is marijuana addictive” might be surprised to learn how unpleasant marijuana withdrawal symptoms can be.

Over 25 million Americans smoked marijuana last year. That is 11.5 percent of the population. According to drugabuse.gov, about 30 percent of Americans arrested for marijuana abuse and violations were under the age of 19. Fortunately, people of all ages can take the steps to avoid the nasty marijuana withdrawal symptoms. A study from Duke University of 496 marijuana smoking adults that attempted to quit found that 95.5 percent experienced at least one symptom of withdrawal. 43.1 percent experienced two or more symptoms.

Going through marijuana withdrawal symptoms could be better than staying on the drug. The American Journal of Epidemiology published a 3 year study of 4,045 psychosis free individuals. The conclusion of the study was that marijuana smokers were much more likely to develop psychotic symptoms than those who did not use the drug.

Another study published by the American Journal of Psychiatry that follow 1,920 individuals for 16 years revealed that marijuana smokers were 4 times as likely to develop depression. Given the alternatives, going through quitting marijuana early and avoiding the more difficult marijuana withdrawal symptoms is a much better option than the alternatives.
