She is a Master of Sharing

The atmosphere that exists among those who smoke u

The atmosphere that exists among those who smoke up is one of sharing and teamwork. Cannabis users often partake in group sessions, and as such, they learn the idea that ‘sharing is caring.’ Whether they are sharing a blunt with you or allowing you to enjoy some of their favorite munchie foods, weed loving women are willing to share nearly anything.

Approach 2: Quitting Weed Cold Turkey

You may not want to quit smoking weed on a gradual basis because:

You may need to quit immediately for many reasons (work, relationships, school, legal issues etc).

You may be the type of person who does things ‘all or nothing’ and it may work best for you to cut it out completely.

The approach of going cold turkey has a history of being associated with drug addiction. It simply means you completely cut out marijuana consumption.

It certainly has the clear advantage of a quick impact. You’ll see results straight away. However, it’s much more complicated than it appears. You have to have a strategy to deal with the withdrawal symptoms that you’ll inevitably experience.

You can’t simply put don’t your spliff and say goodbye to weed forever without looking back. This is because even if you are mentally prepared for the challenge of giving up weed. Your body probably isn’t ready.

After all, your body has developed a tolerance for marijuana. While the body stores THC for up to a month at a time, this simply won’t be enough to prevent you from craving cannabis.

Although going cold turkey might be worth a try, it’s rarely successful on its own without a solid strategy. It’s difficult to fight against your own biology.

In this part of our guide, we will talk about useful strategies for quitting cold turkey.

Prepare Yourself

Look at what ‘function’ marijuana currently fills.

Ask yourself what are other ways you could fill that function?

Example #1: If weed helps you fall asleep…

Look into different ways of how you can help yourself sleep.

Instead of smoking pot, you may:

  • eat less before bedtime so the full stomach doesn’t disturb you
  • staying away from the blue light of mobile phones, tablets and TV before bedtime
  • relaxing before going to bed with a warm shower and light stretching
  • listening to soothing music or white noises
  • creating a pitch dark sleep environment with blackout curtains
  • ventilating the room and keeping a temperature between 60-67 °F (16-20 °C)
  • exercise 10-30 minutes (ideally no later than 5pm) every day to improve your sleep quality

You can look up other ‘sleep hygiene’ tactics and start practicing these right away.

Example #2: If weed helps you deal with work stress and anxiety…

Instead of running to your smoking and weed paraphernalia, try to manage your work stress and anxiety with these long-term tactics:

  • Control your breath. Try to breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth.
  • Take regular breaks. Stay away from your computer and take a short walk.
  • Do some stretching in front of the computer to help your body relax.
  • Communicate more with someone you trust (family member, friend, coworker, doctor, religious leader). Sometimes socializing and confiding your anxiety in trusted persons may be helpful and make you feel less lonely.
  • Keep work/life balance. Try not to bring work home and spend your leisure time with family, friends and hobbies.

Give some time for these things to become habitual before judging their effectiveness.

Remove The Substance, Don’t Buy Cannabis

This is the most simple and obvious first step to quitting your dependency on weed. After all, if you don’t buy it, you won’t smoke it. If you don’t buy yourself anyway, make sure you just don’t get it at all anyway.

The extent of the challenge of not buying weed partly depends on your circumstances. For instance, whether you’re living in a place that has legalized marijuana or not. Or, whether your friends and the social group also smoke weed.

Either way, this step certainly involves bucket loads of willpower to get through it. You are almost certainly going to experience strong temptations to go back to your old ways. The best way to counter these urges is to distract yourself by calling a friend for a chat or going out with non-smoking friends for coffee, and to remind yourself the reasons for wanting to quit.

Let us emphasize once again:

Delete your weed dealer’s phone number (and block it if possible).

Change your daily route if there is a cannabis store on your way.

Get Rid of All The Gear (Smoking Accessories etc.)

This suggestion is crucial.

Most users of marijuana accumulate a wide array of different instruments and accessories. These include anything from pipes and bongs to paper and grinders.

It’s important that you immediately remove all of these items as a statement that this is the start of your non-smoking marijuana-free lifestyle.

Besides, not only do these items have no purpose in your weed-free life, there serve as triggers for relapse.

Many of these accessories could set you back quite a bit. So there’s an extra incentive for you to make a bit of cash on the back of giving up your dependency on smoking weed.

Get rid of all weed and weed paraphernalia you own.

When you have them handy, it is always easy to postpone your goals and get into the vicious circle of “I will do it tomorrow”, a typical procrastination sentence.

Remove the ‘option’ for yourself as much as possible.

Let People Know, Make Yourself Accountable

While you might think that you can handle this on your own, it’s much better to involve other people in your struggle against cannabis dependency.

Make use of your support network, whether it’s family, friends, partners or colleagues. The people that you surround yourself with this time can play a significant role in helping you overcome your dependency and progress towards your goals.

You may want to ‘just stop smoking’ and tell everyone later – but this is often hard.

By telling people, it will keep you accountable.

It will let people know not to offer you a joint or a reefer and you can get social support with your goal.

If you feel intimidated to tell everyone before you are successful, there is another option.

Find a reliable and trusted accountability buddy. This friend, family member or partner can check in on you and help you stay on track when you seem to be forgetful of your goals.

It’s vital to realize that ultimately, giving up your drug disorder is down to you. Nobody else can achieve this for you.

Distract Yourself

Most weed smokers spend many hours in the day getting high. Therefore, it can be difficult removing this from your lifestyle when quitting cold turkey.

That’s why you have to fill the void left. The best thing to replace your marijuana habit with is a healthy hobby. This can be anything from starting a new sport or learning how to bake cakes. It may help to stay busy, to avoid boredom (major trigger for many people) and to keep yourself from focusing on weed.
