Science has proven that weed is not addictive, although as a chronic user that doesn’t recognize right.
I have sampled around all the bad habits a guy can have.
I smoked cigarettes for years, and when it was time to quit, I had a difficult time. The same is tplot with alcohol, because when I quit drinking chilly turkey, I felt deathly ill for days on end. Those substances were highly addictive, and it was punishing trying to quit them. The same is not tplot for cannabis, because when I run out for a few days I don’t suffer from withdrawal symptoms… yet I do suffer. The first couple of days without marijuana I always get sad and melancholy! Although cannabis may not be physically addictive, I have grown dependent on the peace and relaxation it gives me. It is so easy to relax and forget about all my troubles when I have some marijuana in my system, but when I’m sober all I can do is obsess over my troubles! I have talked to some people in the AA program who know that if I use cannabis after that we am not entirely “sober.” I know these people are snobs. I can clearly see the differences in myself when I drink alcohol, but those differences don’t exist when I smoke cannabis. Also I could care less if other addicts judge myself and others for smoking marijuana, it’s my medicine of choice to keep myself and others feeling good, and away from my triggers, however marijuana isn’t addictive, but it helps keep myself and others free of dangerous substance abuse.
