People talk a lot about weed, but what they forget to mention is that just like there are side effects to smoking weed, there are also side effects to weed withdrawal. It’s kind of strange that it’s not talked about very much, but as I don’t really like to complain, I decided to take a few minutes and create this short article that will describe the side effects of quitting pot.
1. Lack of sleep.
That’s one of the first things you’ll notice if you decide to quit marijuana. You’ll not sleep very well. I’ll tell you even more, you’ll not sleep much at all. You’ll probably be so preoccupied with the desire to smoke, you’ll not be able to rest. There are some things you can do to help that, but we’ll talk about them later.
2. Not much of an appetite.
Have you ever been in love? Of course you have. If you’re like me, when you’re in love, you don’t eat much, because you’re just not in the mood. See, the problem is that when you go through weed withdrawal, you won’t eat much either. You’ll be one of those people that sit at the table staring at their food for ages without ANY desire to take a bite, so get ready.
3. You might angry.
That’s another thing that’s really common. After all, weed is considered to be a strong drug that will get you pretty hooked, so weed withdrawal has to be annoying. I am sure you’ve been around someone who decided to quit smoking regular cigarettes, right? Do you remember how easily worked up they were?
You could say pretty much anything and they would get mad. Well, multiply that by at least five and you’ll get a pre-taste of what will happen with you when you go through weed withdrawal.
4. You might pretty depressed.
That’s the last thing I want to mention here. You’ll want to smoke. In fact, you’ll want to smoke so bad that the thought you can’t will make you really miserable. That will pass when the weed withdrawal is over, but it will last until you’re clean. Of course, since you’ll get really sad and extremely mad, as mentioned above, you’ll be perfectly antisocial, so be sure to let your friends know you’re quitting so that they are prepared.
Weed withdrawal side effects are real and don’t let anyone convince you otherwise. They will happen, but it does not mean that quitting weed is not worth it. Once you’re through with it, you’ll be glad you’re not addicted anymore and you’ll feel really free.
The Quit Marijuana Program at QuitMarijuana.Org has a withdrawal guide to help you through the hardest part of quitting, the first days and weeks.
Good luck and talk soon.
