How To Stop Smoking Weed

By Julie Paarmann| With 0 Comments

Stop WeedIf you've finally reached the decision to quit, you'll want to know how to stop smoking weed. Each person is different when it comes to quitting the smoking habit, the longer you've been smoking and the more you have smoked will have a bearing on your withdrawal symptoms. Here are just a few simple guidelines that can help:

Throw away all your smoking paraphernalia and weed, do not to keep anything that will entice you back. Tell your loved ones and trustworthy friends that you are giving up and that you need their support. If you are the only one in a group of smokers giving up, tell them that you no longer want to smoke but you'll understand if they want to continue. You will have to be strong too and tell them “no” if they offer you any weed.

One of the biggest things to do is make preparations for your withdrawal symptoms, be aware that they are coming and the likely signs. The good news is that they don't last and after about 2-3 days you'll feel a little better and after 10 days you should be well on the road to recovery. You may experience anxiety, panic attacks and sleeplessness along with nausea and a lack of appetite but preparing for this should make it easier for you. Taking exercise on a regular basis and a
healthy diet will help with these symptoms and help you to learn how to stop smoking weed.

Cannabis Addiction Affects Teenagers IQ And It’s On The Increase

By Julie Paarmann| With 0 Comments

Benefits of Quitting WeedRecent studies have shown that cannabis addiction affects teenagers IQs and more worryingly the use of the drug is on the increase amongst that generation. From the late 1990’s right up until 2012 the use of marijuana amongst teenagers was declining. It is thought that the increase in popularity is the misguided conception that the drug is not dangerous.

Another worrying fact is that it appears they are using the drug every day and not just as a weekend release. This is a concern for both parents and authorities alike as it is more likely that they will get addicted to the drug even quicker, which causes problems with their studies, social behaviour and money problems too.

There’s also a new drug on the block called synthetic marijuana, most teenagers know it as Spice or K2. These are seen as a "safe" replacement for marijuana but in reality are just as addictive and can cause problems for the user.

If you or anyone you know has become addicted to cannabis then seeking help should be your main priority. The theory that the drug is not addictive and won’t do any harm is an ill-judged one as cannabis addiction affects teenagers IQ’s as well as all the other problems associated with drug taking. There are plenty of places that will offer help and advice on how to deal with a cannabis addiction.

Cannabis Withdrawal Treatment For The Young

By Julie Paarmann| With 0 Comments

Cannabis WithdrawalThese days more and more of the younger generation are smoking cannabis and becoming addicted to the weed and its affect on their mind and body. Most youngsters who are addicted to the drug do not realise the harmful results it can have their brain and as soon as they get help the better it will be for them. Cannabis withdrawal treatment is available all over the UK and speaking to a professional who can help them is a great start on the road to recovery.

One of the first things a cannabis addict needs to do is get rid of all their smoking paraphernalia and flush any excess weed down the toilet. After this is done they are ready to start on their road to recovery from their addiction. The good thing about giving up cannabis is that the worst withdrawal symptoms only last three or four days, after this time it does get easier.

To cope with the withdrawal symptoms it’s best to take up a new hobby or something that will take your mind away from wanting that fix. Taking up light exercise and eating healthy food are two of the best ways to help combat withdrawal. Having someone to talk to will also be a great aid to recovery so always make sure that you tell a close friend or loved one so that they can help you.

Cannabis withdrawal treatment does work and can help addicts to come off of the weed, saving them money and making sure they have a healthier life.
