Marijuana Side Effects – When to Stop Smoking Weed

Hi Everyone,

Smoking Marijuana used to be a lot of fun for me, I am not going to lie. But it was a bit of a slippery slope. I don’t know exactly when it happened, but the side effects of smoking marijuana started to become worse than the ‘high’.

Marijuana Side Effects
I started smoking heavily while I was in university, at around 18 years old.   I was able to keep up my grades, and social expectations, but still enjoy a regular smoke…..for a while.     Gradually, I started to puff more often, until I was smoking 1/4 oz of fine herb every 4 or 5 days.    I would wake and bake, then smoke a cigarette (I wasn’t a cigarette smoker…but I thought it got me more high) first thing in the morning.   Then I would chase the high all day.

I carried on like this for YEARS…I was really stuck in a rut.. The marijuana side effects were way worse for my life than the short feeling of the high, and I knew I had to stop smoking weed…When you think about side effects, you probably think about coughing, red eyes, and the munchies…but what about the larger lifestyle side effects of smoking weed?

For me, there was always some anxiety about people finding out I smoked, or being stoned in public.   There was also the anxiety of running out.   I used to run around my apartment looking for scraps in the cracks of the coffee table, couch cushions, and on the floor.      There was also the $20,000 or so dollars I spent smoking weed.  That’s a down payment on house….or a brand new car.   My health suffered, partly from smoking, partly from being lazy, because that’s what happened when I got high.

I have gained some perspective in the last 6 months.   I don’t really identify with the ‘the person I was’ when I was such a heavy smoker.   Don’t get me wrong, I know that was me, but I am kinda embarassed about it.    I have friends from that point in my life who only know me as a stoner, and that’s a label no one wants.   To my close friends, I have made some apologies, because I wasn’t holding up my side of the friendship like I do now…luckily they have given me the opportunity to prove it.   Who would have thought that long term marijuana side effects would be losing friends….it happens.

If you can relate to this, and are still smoking, there are a few things I want to tell you.   First off.  You CAN do it!   Second, think of the weed side effects that you have…and don’t think of just the red eyes and stuff…think of your lifestyle, and if this is the lifestyle you want to keep on living.    Personally, I needed to quit weed if I wanted to progress as an individual.  I know it sounds a little corny….but it’s truth.

  • Amsterdam August 16, 2012, 7:13 am

    My name is Jack,

    I’m from Amsterdam where weed is partially legal. By that I mean I can legally buy it from the coffeeshops.
    But the coffeeshops can’t legally import the weed from anywhere. Not even grow there own! But it still works and this is not relevant to my comment at all. Weed…

    So, I smoke weed everyday and I have been wanting to quit for a month. Now after reading this blog I have just finished all the weed I had. So this will be the moment. I hope to see the quality of my life improve in time. I know what you mean by the negative side effects. I have them too! I’m a lazy man for sure!

    thank you

    I don’t get high. I stay high

  • Daddythumpthp September 12, 2012, 9:42 pm

    In my opinion weed isnt causing your life to be shit… Its you. Its not hard to moderate how much or often you smoke. I do just fine while smoking. All you have to do is Set your priorities. Make sure you accomplish all your daily responsibilities before enjoying a smoke. Make sure to eat healthy and get at least 5 hours of exercise in a week. If your in school and cant keep up, only smoke on weekends. Treat weed as a reward instead of a a necessity. Dont be weak minded and succumb to temptations because that will land you in shitville. YOU control your life and not pot, remember that.

  • B_raw September 16, 2012, 9:16 pm

    I like what tommie said, i ben smoking since 17. I graduated and Every thing now in college with a partime job.

  • victor September 22, 2012, 3:37 pm

    Marry jay ain’t addicting lol I have been smoking for about 8 years it would be 12 but I had to stop for my wife but after she got cancer we both smoke and I wasn’t going crazy for it nor dying, so my people who think it is your dumb.

  • Neil September 27, 2012, 9:26 am

    okay first I would like to point out the part in the authors article, “There was also the anxiety of running out. I used to run around my apartment looking for scraps in the cracks of the coffee table, couch cushions, and on the floor.” I laughed very very hard when I read this LOL. Thats only for crack and like meth heads…..a person who does that is just weak minded and probaly would get addicted to anything. Marijuana has no physical addiction but it does have mental addiction. Just like fat asses have a mental addiction to McDonalds. Im 19 years old and I smoke nearly every weekend or so….people say OOOHHH dude your going to go like once a week then twice a week then every day! Well not me….I’ve been smoking for about 1 year now and it seems that I can handle myself. Im currnetly going to a big ten universtiy….so you people cant call me out on being a loser or lazy. I graduated high school with a 3.5 and I played ice hockey all throughout high school. Also im currently buying a 350 dollar guitar because I have always wanted to learn a musical insturment. The people who fuck up their lives on marijuana were going to fuck up their lives no matter what….marijuana just got there first. Everything in moderation………except hard drugs(never do them) lmao.

    Just remember people…….man made beer, God made weed, in God we trust.

    Legalize it!

  • Paprika September 30, 2012, 3:52 pm

    I have smoked weed now for 20 years and still do but I have to say that anyone who thinks that it doesn’t affect the way you think or your motivation is kidding themselves! The only time I managed to ‘quit’ was when I moved to a different country and couldn’t get hold of it coz I didn’t know anyone to buy off… But now I do so therefore started smoking it again about 2 years ago. Before if found someone to buy off I’d not smoked for a year and as soon as I lit my first joint after that year of quitting I felt paranoid and negative about stuff. I couldn’t believe I had been doing that to myself daily for such a long time….. Though stupidly I have gone back to smoking again ( usually at night before bed) and generally feel ok… I am planning on quitting again though. Those of you who are still under 20 years old dont realise that your young little brains are still ‘wiring up’ and you guys are interfering with that process…. Especially when smoking weed that has been chemically enhanced! You are opening yourselves up to all kinds of POSSIBLE mental health issues. I’m lucky… I don’t have any depression or mental health issues and am generally a positive person and yes… I too am for smoking weed, however, I’m also not in that much denial that I actually think its ‘good’ for me or doesn’t affect the way I think or function…. Those of you that are in your early years of weed smoking are showing your ignorance and lack of education/experience….. Just sayin! ; )

  • dfg3000 October 12, 2012, 8:04 am

    Pot definately is not addicting – I’ve been smoking it for forty years
    and I’m still not addicted.

    It hasn’t had any bad effect on me – I just sit home and play video games all day because I want to. Beats working!

    THey should make it legal so people can get it easier and cheaper.

  • Marijuana momma November 7, 2012, 10:59 am

    Hi, I have been smoking weed for 17 years daily , all day everyday , i have quit here and there but more or less 17 years. I think that like everything else it affects you in your own personal way. I get up , have a coffee and a cig, then a bit later i crank my tunes and clean my house do laundry ect, i have a VERY clean house, thats on the weekends, during the week i go to work 8 hours come , have a hoot, start dinner for my family i find having a hoot when you are hungry gives you a fantastic meal and then i proceed to eat followed by a hoot then get everything ready for the next day ie ,lunches ,set coffee pot ect…then once my kids are i bed i have a hoot and sit down put my feet up and relax. sleep , repeat mo-fri. granted there are days that i am extra tired and instead of perking me up i just wanna sleep , but i wanted to sleep before i had a hoot so really the marijuana is just letting me know that sleep is more important right now. HOWEVER if you live with your parents have no money and dont wanna work ,play video games and hit the bong all day PROBLEM!!! guys girls think you are a lazy slob who has no potential at all, hot or are a looser if you do this , change qiuck, and girls if you wanna smoke take care of you and your shit while you are doing it otherwise …..yup looserette.

  • shannon November 15, 2012, 7:23 am

    What is wrong with all of you people who chastise others for being addicted to weed? How are you being helpful by claiming others are just “weak-willed?” I smoked everyday for 10 years and I know how the habit can gradually get out of control. All of you claiming that marijuana has no negative side effects on your life and you are wholly in control should probably stop using the internet while stoned. Good luck to all trying to quit…and remember marijuana is just a replacement for having REAL experiences!

    @Marcelis definitely try to quit! I thought about the same thing when I was 20 years old. I’m 27 now and instead of thinking about it, I’m going to try to do it. Just me Marcelis, try to quit because these past 7 years, I have been wasting it being stoned. Nothing beats LIVING sober. You’ll eventually experience a natural high with life! Go sightseeing, camping, hiking, just something to get away from your world for a few days or even hours. Good luck!

  • jasonbourne December 25, 2012, 8:42 pm

    On January 03, 2013 I’ll have 13 years without smoking a joint. I smoked for 27 years. It’s still not easy for me, I still have to take it one day at a time. Just for the record, I did become addicted to maryjane. It gave me everything I was looking for in life. Started at 10 yrs old, didn’t stop till 40 yrs old. There is still times when I wish I still could smoke the stuff, but I would lose everything I have if I do. People invoved in my life have manipulated it to be what they think it should be, thinking that would bring me happiness, well it hasn’t. Having a relationship with my own concept of a God, was supposed to fill that hole inside of me, and comfort me. To some extent it did. But that part of recovery is over-rated. I still feel empty, and feel as if I’m looking for something I’ll never be able to find. But for some reason I stay clean. :shock:

  • Canadian Bakin' December 26, 2012, 9:51 am

    I`ve been a weed smoker for about 30 years. About a year ago, my career went to shit–not because of pot but because the entertainment industry tanked. Then I got another job working for psycho bitch. Then my wife and I split. I am a Vice President level employee and have never concerned myself with worry over pot smoking. Suddenly though, my money started to dwindle. It wasn`t just enough that I had a bad couple of years but now I was runnning out of substantial savings too! One day ot dawned on me, I haven`t left my house since my ex and I split. I go out and network from 9 to 5 and frelance when I can but after 5pm, I don`t answer my mobile phone, my home phone or my front door.

    So, I went to see my doctor and then a shrink. I was told that I was sufering from depression. Okay, fair enough. Perhaps it`s sittuational perhaps not but I nevertheless asked my doctor, as he write a scrip for anti-depressants: ~Can`t I just smoke weed?~

    My doctor is cool. He knows I don`t take pills. He knows I attach stigma to anyone that has to use prescription meds for altering their mind. The idea of a ~happy pill~ seemed offensive to me. Not so.

    My doctor said that I could take the meds if I wanted to but reminded me that marijuana while seemingly harmless in his mind, does create apathy. Holy Christ, he just described me! I`ve been apathetic for at least two years… My ex would want to talk about mariage and kids and I would blow her off for putting to much pressure on me. She wanted to start planning a family. Looking back on it (and I remember saying this to myself,) I don`t want to get married and have kids because then I`d have to be like my friends… Sneaking a doober in here and reefer in there… I didn;t want to have to hide smoking weed because that`s what addicts do. What`s that? I am one? Oh. (Yeah.. Epiphany.)

    So the doc says that I`m self medicating by using pot. I wanna smash his face in for saying that but he`s a good man and a good doctor. He`s right and he`s known me since I started smoking pot at 14.

    I also developed an insane penchant for hating people… I have no room in my life for forgiveness. People come to my door to raise money for charity and I tell them that I couldn`t give a damn about starving children… That is not who I am. When I told my doctor that, he reminded me how much I`ve worked for sicial justice and how much I used to care about the world.. Sonofabitch, he was starting to hit close to home…

    At anyrate, today, I am out of pot. I have not smoked weed for two days. I know that my siytuation isn`t just the fault of the weed. Clearly, and as I stated above, I have been diagnosed with depression. Here`s what I`d like to remind people… Apathy is boring and I want to to stop. I`ve seen my doc about my headspace and discovered something. I discovered that maybe taking an antidepressant once a day for five or six months at 40 dollars a month is a better choice than a quarter ounce of t(he best Canadian hydro) a week at 50 bucks a pop.

    Nope, today is the first day I`ll take an antidepressant. Today is the day that I call my cousin and have her introduce me to her friend—an elite international triathelete who had a chronic weed problem and went AA to listen and learn. She`s been clean 8 years now and she`s still attending AA to keep her off the weed. (She never drank. She just found AA beter than NA.)

    Thanks for the website.

  • psych. student December 27, 2012, 2:45 pm

    In response to anti- drugs…
    You say smokers are uneducated yet your post is the most illiterate piece of crap I have ever read. Not everyone can handle doing drugs. I was educated as a kid on drinking and it seems that the same lesson applies to anything (anything in excess is bad). I’ve smoked marijuana for 4 years and it has only positively effected my life. It has to be limited. I use it to wind down at the end of a productive day. I never go to work or class high and I have a good paying job and decent grades.
    Point is, whatever drug of choice yours is ( Weed, alcohol, cigarettes, or even caffeine) it’s better in moderation.

  • next January 16, 2013, 2:58 am

    those guys who have under 20 and think weed is cool.. you make me laugh, you don’t realize how bad it is. i can tell you, i smoke since 11 years ago. i’m about to stop today. that is not good for our brain unlike of what you can say. that a fact.

    stop to ba lazy, quit that shit and go ahead fight the world.
    smoking made you spectator, that i dont like.
    peace. . obviously english isn’t my language..

  • rublestiltzkin January 25, 2013, 11:58 am

    The title of this article was what interested me into reading it, not that I dont think there are side effects, but because the side effects are so miniscule and vanilla, I like to laugh when people exxagerate them to make them seem problematic. First off, if these “problems” you are noticing are thought to be strictly due to smoking pot, you are an idiot and probably shouldn’t be partaking in any altering of your state of concsiousness. What I mean is, you aren’t smart enough, or of the correct mental state to be able to handle pot or any other vice. That includes alcohol, jerking off, cigars, porn, or otherwise. Just keep living in your box, probably devoting useless hours every day to your faith, or whatever other BS is on your personal agenda. Me, I have smoked weed on and off, heavily and sparingly, high and low quality, for about 18 years now. I’m 30, so that puts my start date at 12 years old. According to this article, I should be all messed up, hating my life and others around me, depressed and paranoid. Fact of the matter is, I have 3 kids whoI am very close to and hang out with every single day, a full time job that I enjoy doing where I make between 70-80,000 dollars annually, a girlfriend who is the mother to all 3 of our kids who doesnt smoke pot but doesnt oppose it either. I own my home outright, own 2 cars, and am currently working on paying off an RV. I am in above average health (yes, I have health insurance) and I completed 4 years of college at a then pac-10 university. I dont hide my vice, rather I advocate for it by educating people about the real role it can play in your life. For anyone who really thinks marijuana is playing such a negative role in peoples lives and in society, you are what is wrong with this country. and you need to realize that

  • AM February 11, 2013, 7:09 am

  • Neil's Dad May 1, 2013, 10:47 am

    I read Neil’s post (September 2012) and couldn’t help but reply. I’m 43 Neil, so I’m old enough to be your father or your future. Since you’ve decided that going to a Big 10 school, getting a 3.5 GPA and playing high-school hockey means you’re not a loser and that anyone addicted to marijuana is weak-minded I’ll fill in a few blanks for you.
    I have undergraduate and masters degrees from a Big 10 University. I had a 3.9 GPA and I was the captain of my state champion high-school hockey team. My net worth is several million dollars and yet I’m somewhere between mentally addicted to marijuana and formally mentally addicted to marijuana. I’ve combed through my house looking for enough scraps of weed to fill a one-hitter on many occasions (it’s not just for crack-heads anymore!)
    I’m not going to call you or anyone else that smokes pot or smokes way too much pot “lazy” or a “loser” since that would be untrue in most cases that I’m familiar with, but I will tell you that weed addiction can sneak up on you. I took my first bong hit at 14 and LOVED it. I’ve always loved it and always maintained that weed has made my life better rather than worse. I still think that was true until a few years ago. At times weed gave me clarity and insight that I couldn’t otherwise find and it certainly gave me a hell of a lot of laughs and fun.
    I wouldn’t change a thing about my past, when I was able to manage my use, but I’ve had to change my present. I live in a state where getting weed takes as much effort as turning on your computer and waiting an hour for a pretty girl to bring it to your house. My vaporizer took away my concerns for my lungs, my wife smokes, and I’m self employed so I have no barriers to getting stoned. Somewhere along the way I lost my ability to control my use (I was either working or stoned) and it sapped my motivation, erased my short term memory and made me sloppy at my job (which lead to a mistake that may cost me about $100,000).
    My point is that there’s a fine line between use and abuse and it’s not easy to tell when you’ve crossed it and it’s not easy to cross back. Last night I soaked through three tee-shirts with sweat and had the same types of dreams that others have written about. Still, I already feel mentally sharper and have gotten back to exercising and approaching my job as though my family’s livelihood depends on it.
    Neil, I hope you continue to manage your use, get good grades, graduate and have a long, healthy and happy life. Just don’t make the mistake of thinking that others are simply weak minded or that it can’t happen to you. I said all the same things at your age.
    By the way, if you’ve got everything under control so well then why are you on a website called “marijuana-addict” in the first place?

  • jason July 19, 2013, 4:16 pm

    my name is Jason , and my terrible step mother got me smoking pot at the tender age of thirteen. This began a twenty year addiction to marijuana.
    now at the age of 38 I have finally been able to conquer the habit and stop for
    good. The effects on myself profound, and permanent. Toward my intellect,
    my psychological mental health, and physical health. Linda was a monster
    who abused pot and every drug she could get her hands on her entire life.
    Several times draining my father’s, a doctor, bank account. Fortunately
    a few years ago she died of a massive heart attach as a result of her year ‘s
    of drug abuse. Her body now worm food, and her soul burns in hell.
    there is justice. :) god Bless

  • Andi July 31, 2013, 6:09 pm

    I just want to continue to reiterate the point that weed is not physically addictive, and drug studies have shown that. However, I wouldn’t say that it can’t cause problems, or that it only causes problems in weak-minded people (although for a small percentage of people that might be true, but definitely not for everyone). I believe that anyone who can leave an addiction, even one that is strictly mental, is not weak-minded. The truth is, weed can cause Amotivational Syndrome (i.e., you lose motivation to do many/most/all things in your daily life). It can affect your life in a number of ways, and starting off young can make this an even bigger problem. Some of you may have recognized this problem in your own lives.

    I’m a grad student in neuroscience and I’ve studied in a lab the effects of mj on the brain. I tried it to help me get sleep though, otherwise I’d be up for days at a time. It’s the only thing that works because I have an unusually high tolerance for other meds, both prescription and OTC. I have been using for less than a year. I absolutely love it, and I can’t and won’t be an anti-drug advocate. As long as I can handle it, I’m going to continue with it. But if it gets to the point where I start to recognize what people here are explaining in my own life, I pray that I’ll be smart and strong enough to quit like many of you have. I appreciate what you all have shared, because now I know what kind of things to look out for as I continue to use this drug.

  • Jordan August 4, 2013, 10:36 pm

    Okay first… I’ve been smoking for 9 years… And guess what it is very addicting… Kush smell so good i want it now.. Althought i ran out.. And i need to quit.. Today is the day i rather pop pain killers.. That shit slowed me down so much, and i smoke everyday.. Seriously… Im 25 smoking jumping on my ps3 and im good!!! But No.. The dude that got me High for the first time Quit! And Now hes a Sherrif for Palmdale California wow…. I want my music career, and want a record deal.. Yall are tripping… Quit that weed man.. That shit taking u soul.. And im finna get that back baby!

  • Maddie August 19, 2013, 1:37 pm

    Marijuana is proven to be non-addictive. :mrgreen:

  • dirtyoldlady1 August 19, 2013, 3:55 pm

    I am terminal with Pulmonary fibrosis. Those who don’t know, this is a loss of major lungs. I Now have under 45% of active lungs. Oxygen 24/7. 48 pills a day.
    just for a battle to keep me alive. I thought of MJ and found a source. I make up yummy brownie cookies and fudge. I have been using it now 3 months to the tune of $500.
    I have found lately that I don’t want to eat.The thought of food is sickening. I sit, I am in a wheelchair, in front of the cupboards and fridge with no desire to eat.
    I force myself to eat baby food. I am bipolar and taking medications for this as well.
    Lately, and only lately I have no desire to live, to do the crafts that I love to do,I force myself to get out of bed , I pretend to be social, but I find myself stealing energy from the people around me. So I stop being social. I am Pagan and there are no circles near so I don’t have any support.
    This has to be a reaction to MJ. But I don’t want to quit because it eases the pain of arthritus .
    Just a word of advise. Depression, lack of exercise ,lack of interest, lack of appatite . lack of spelling, disinterest of movies, tv or radio. I live in silence.
    Thank you for listening.

    Hey I just have a question I don’t smoke it all the time once in a blue moon, my question is will it effect my studys and make me dumb and all the knowlage that I have will I loose all of that and become a dumb dumb?

  • John Goodman September 11, 2013, 1:49 pm

    How does one even get addicted to marijuana? I smoke everyday. Not because I’m addicted, but because I choose to. Somedays, I don’t smoke. Why? Because I say to myself, “Nah, not now.” If you think you’re addicted to weed, you’re the problem. You’re why you’re lazy, not weed. Also, learn how to spell. It’s like a blind woodsman hacked at your keyboard and shat out a sentence or two.

    I love how people keep saying “It’s not addictive! I’ve smoked it for 30 years and I’m not addicted” Umm, if you’re not addicted, then why in the world have you smoked it for 30 years?!?!? The fact that you smoked it for 30 years, kind of looks like you’re addicted.

    You really know you’re not addicted if you frequently forget about it for extended periods of time… like oh, yeah, man, I forgot all about marijuana. It’s been 6 months. *Takes a few hits and then forgets about it for another 5 months. No, you don’t forget about it, because your body and mind asks you for it. And it’s a regular part of your life.

    Well a lot of negative comments on here really not helpful to the people who want to give up smoking weed, so weed isn’t addictive nor is alcohol yet we have alcoholics so yes you can develop a problem call it addiction call it a habit its a problem and not one you deserve to be mocked for there are better site out there with lots of support.

    I smoke weed when I was 22 years old on an Air Force Base I work in a distillation Plant after high school back in 1973. Why, cause most of the US Air Force guys smoke weed and I joint their parties, and now I’m 62 years old, retired and wonder if there’s any affect of marijuana on older guys like me. I live on an Island in the South Pacific where the sun set. If you see a World Globe follow the Date line down South you will find an island there call Savaii, that’s where I live. We grow plants there. I don’t really fill any affect except dry mouth. So that’s my question. Does weed have any affect on the Oldies like 62 to 90 years Old.

    To people who say it’s not addictive I say keep on smoking and enjoy yourselves. I’ve been smoking that shit almost everyday for 9 years and it’s ruining my life, yet I’m still smoking. So please leave websites like this to people who want to get help and quit.

    For me, yesterday was the first day in 2 years that I didn’t smoke and I didn’t sleep at all that first night. Damn it’s hard, I’m going crazy here but I know what my goal is. I threw away propably the best years of my life 15-24 just getting high and doing nothing else. I had enough, no more.

    I smoked for almost 30 years.. Any of you ‘smart people’ who think it’s not addictive, keep on smoking, we will have the last laugh when you come back here years down the road realizing how much life you wasted… The guy in college talking about his grade point average and being on hockey team, you were the funniest of all! Many of us were just like you when we started. For me, I’ve known it was a problem for a long time, but I have finally – FINALLY stopped. I am on my 3rd day of not smoking, already feeling so much better.. missing it a little and not sleeping, but feeling sharper and stronger every day!
