What do YOU think is the first thing you should do before giving up smoking weed?

I get asked this question a lot and I appreciate it can appear daunting with all of the different methods and information out there on the internet. When I directly answer this question I always feel that my answer isn’t what that person wants to hear.

You see I respond and tell them that this first stage to giving up smoking is making a decision. Sound’s simple enough? Right? Well you would think so. But a lot of people DON’T actually make that decision, they decide they want to give up smoking for whatever reason but they DON’T actually want to be free from smoking forever. They say to themselves “I want to smoke again” or “I’ll give up for a little bit now, and then smoke again in a few months” and even “I don’t really want to stop because I enjoy it, but I want to stop because I don’t have much money at the moment”.

People who use these EXCUSES will not give up.

They have already condemned themselves to failure before they have even started. You see if you are not 100% definite about giving up, then it simply will not happen. You have to want it more than anything for it to happen for you. If you are half hearted about it, or if you are undecided whether or not you truly want to give up then it simply will not happen for you.

There is science behind this madness, and what I am bringing this conversation towards is self-talk. What you say to yourself in your own mind. You see, everyone talks to themselves. But it is what we are saying to ourselves over and over and over and over again that is causing us to keep doing what we are doing.

If you want to quit smoking – you will, if you don’t want to quit – you won’t.

Have you ever wondered why you keep relapsing?

  • Why you are unable to give up smoking instantly?
  • What exactly is creating the cravings and withdrawal symptoms?
  • How come EVERYONE doesn’t get the same symptoms that you do?
  • Why do non-smokers not become addicted to smoking when they inhale your second hand smoke?

Here are some interesting questions you should consider to ask yourself. I am not about to tell you what you should or shouldn’t be doing. That is your decision and your choice. No one can help you if you don’t want help. Fact is, I used to be a weed smoker and since I have given it up, life has been great!

You see the majority of people who try and give up end up failing because they are giving up using willpower. Well, lets break that down a bit. Willpower is deciding to do something against what you desire.

In fact that is so important, I am going to write it again … willpower is deciding to do something against what you desire.

When you try and do something against what you truly desire you are creating more stress for yourself because you feel like you are missing out on something. Is stress what you need in your life?? NO!

Stress is a trigger to smoke!! So, you give up, create more stress for yourself and wonder why you couldn’t resist the cravings???? It’s simple when you break it down.

What is the best way to give up smoking? Get rid of cravings. Focus upon that. If you have no cravings, you will have no problems.

Do you still smoke marijuana regularly???

Ask YOURSELF something important today.

Why do you still smoke? ….

  • Is it because you think you’re addicted to smoking?
  • Do you smoke because you like it?
  • Is it because that’s who you are and what you do?
  • Maybe it’s because it keeps you calm?

Now ask yourself another question.
Remember back to the very first time you tried marijuana.

Did you crave to smoke then, like you do now??? ….

No? Yes? If you are anything like me then the answer is a definite No.

Well this is something for you to ponder on today and try to find out why you really have become addicted to smoking marijuana. You never smoked like this before, so why do you do it now? What EXACTLY is it that makes you THINK you have to smoke today?

Remember it is all in your mind. Ever wondered how a hypnotherapist manages to stop someone smoking in just a one hour session? Well it has got everything to do with the conscious and unconscious mind and what it believes as true. You might be saying that hypnosis doesn’t work for you or you believe it doesn’t work for you. Well you are right – it won’t work for you if you don’t believe it. You see the trick is believing it.

Do you remember what a placebo is? For those of you who don’t know – a placebo is something like a sugar pill which has absolutely no medical or chemicals inside of it. Yet it is given to a patient and they are told that it will help them recover from their problem. If the person believed it was real medication then the healing effects would often turn out to be remarkable and in most cases it was more effective than taking actual medication to heal the problem.

What does this tell us? Well the mind controls more than you know about. What you believe becomes a reality for you. If you believe you will be an addict for the rest of your life then guess what – you will. You need to shift your thoughts and change them into positives. That is what Cannabis Addicts is focusing on, how you can change your mind and thoughts to become positive! So that you won’t actually
desire marijuana anymore.

Consider what I have wrote today and if it interests you then get off of your backside and research it. Prove me that I am wrong if you want to. Or confirm that I am right. I know the truth, but do you?

If Placebo was a drug, they would no doubt be pure heroin – dangerous, mysterious and totally addictive.

This is a hot debate that is discussed frequently.

Should cannabis be legalized?
Personally my views on the matter is absolutely yes. I was recently directed to a marijuana campaign currently in development which was campaigning for the legalization of the drug.

Why? Because we are uncertain as to what we are actually smoking, how many of us are smoking it and why we smoke it. There is no way to govern it’s usage because it is part of the black market. The government is loosing out on a taxable resource, it’s users are loosing out by not knowing what pesticides are being used or even the strength of the harvest.

We just don’t know what we are smoking/eating/consuming!

When it is put like that, it is so true. How many of you can remember having a bad smoke? Some brown looking weed? Something just didn’t taste right or normal when you got your last bag off of your dealer. This is frequent occurrence and something that I would like to see change. Dealers generally don’t care and don’t know where the marijuana is coming from, they don’t know how it was grown, what level of pesticides were used and what conditions it was grown in. There could be anything in the soil for all you know. And because there is a huge market for marijuana, the drug dealers just couldn’t care less for your health! As long as they keep making their bucks that is all that matters to them.

Think about it for a moment. Unless you grow your own supply do you know exactly what the history is of those buds you possess?

I think that marijuana should not only be legal, I think it should be a cottage industry. It would be wonderful for the state of Maine. There’s some pretty good homegrown dope. I’m sure it would be even better if you could grow it with fertilizers and have greenhouses.
