About the Marijuana Addict
This blog was created as a tool to help in me explore and overcome my addiction to marijuana. Prior to starting this site, I had tried to quit on my own many, many times. I have been smoking for 10 years, 7 of those years has been a heavy, chronic addiction.
The desire to quit had been building in me for a last couple of years. It is clearly time to take action and invest some serious mental and emotional effort. I will quit smoking pot – and share everything I learn along the way. You can view my Daily Journal to see my current progress.
I have also created a Marijuana Addiction Forum on this site so that you can post your own journals, questions and comments about marijuana rehabilitation.
I have started the process by documenting “Why I want to quit smoking weed“. This is a very personal, difficult task to do – and I highly recommend it. You can click on the link above to view my results of this exercise.
I am pleased to announce that I have quit smoking marijuana since April 2008. Between November 2007 and April 2008, I worked hard at quitting and had my share of setbacks, but managed to maintain my drive and continue to work away at the problem. If you are struggling with a marijuana addiction, you are not alone. There are a lot of people in the world that are experiencing the same love / hate relationship with cannabis that you are. There is a silver lining! You can also check out How I quit smoking marijuana. If you take the plunge, you can quit too!
This website is a work in progress, and has been online since mid-November 2007. Please bear with me as I go through growing pains over the next couple months….I know the categories are a mess right now.
