Current research suggests that 30 percent of people who use marijuana have some level of marijuana use disorder. When someone’s addicted and can’t get their pot, they get irritable, can’t sleep, lose their appetite, and start to crave it.
Your body has become used to the drug, and you need something more to feel the same effects. For marijuana users, the next step usually isn’t smoking more pot… it’s doing stronger drugs.
Your body has to have it, and you go into withdrawal if you can’t have it.
You spend more and more of your time, energy and money getting your pot. Doesn’t matter how messed up it makes you, or how many people you hurt. This your new normal. But we desperately want to help you see that there’s nothing normal about it… and that if you’re addicted, we can help you break free.
If you’re addicted, your marijuana use has changed your brain chemistry enough that there’s not enough willpower in the world to resist the cravings. It’s a disease, and it needs to be treated.
