Science has proven that weed is not addictive, although as a chronic user that doesn’t know right.
I have sampled around all the terrible habits a person can have. I smoked cigarettes for years, and when it was time to quit, I had a strenuous time. The same is tplot with alcohol, because when I quit drinking frigid 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 typically get uneasy and melancholy, but although cannabis may not be physically addictive, I have grown dependent on the peace and relaxation it gives me. It is so straight-forward to relax and forget about all my problems when I have some marijuana in my system, but when I’m sober all I can do is obsess over my problems! I have talked to some people in the AA program who know that if I use cannabis after that I am not undoubtedly “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 me for smoking marijuana, it’s my medicine of option to keep me feeling good, and away from my triggers. Marijuana isn’t addictive, but it helps keep me free of dangerous substance abuse.
