Marijuana Addiction


Marijuana AddictionMarijuana addiction is a phenomenon experienced by more than 150,000 individuals each year who enter treatment for their proclaimed addiction to marijuana. Marijuana addiction is characterized as compulsive and often uncontrollable marijuana craving, seeking, and use that continues even when the individual knows that marijuana use is not in their best interest. Marijuana addiction could be defined as chronically making the firm decision not to use marijuana followed shortly by a relapse due to experiencing overwhelming compulsive urges to use marijuana despite the firm decision not to. This contradiction is characteristic of an addiction problem.

Symptoms of Marijuana Addiction:

  1. Marijuana tolerance:
    Either need for markedly increased amounts of marijuana to achieve intoxication or markedly diminished effect with continued use of the same amount of marijuana.
  2. Greater use of marijuana than intended:
    Marijuana taken in larger amounts or over a longer period than was intended
  3. Unsuccessful efforts to cut down or control marijuana use
  4. A great deal of time spent in using marijuana
  5. Marijuana use causing a reduction in social, occupational, or recreational activities.
  6. Continued marijuana use despite knowing it will cause significant problems.

Marijuana is both emotionally and mentally addictive. Once an individual becomes addicted to marijuana, it develops into part of who they believe themselves to be. Avoiding their friends who do not use, the addict will gravitate to others that do. Marijuana is a topic that is always on their mind, whether it be thinking about the next time they will be able to get high or where their going to get their next "sack". When someone is addicted to marijuana, eventually their friends and the people close to them only know how they act when they're stoned because they no longer do anything without smoking first. Their constant abuse is due to the misconception that marijuana is what they need to solve their problems. Sometimes addicts will take their stash with them wherever they go, just in case an opportunity arises and they are able to take a couple hits. They may even go through several dealers in order to make sure they always have a constant supply of marijuana.

If you feel that your marijuana use is out of your control and interfering with your personal goals and happiness and you would like to stop but can't, then seek help from addiction treatment professional.
