Realizing that you have a problem with marijuana can be difficult. The popular image of maijuana is that it is safe and non-addictive, and provides some health benefits. It is important to remember that marijuana is still a drug, and that it is possible to get addicted to marijuana. However, because of marijuana’s image as a “safe” drug, many users deny their addiction and may fail to realize how dependent on the drug they are.
Marijuana is seen by many as a relatively harmless drug that does not carry the same addiction risks as other drugs. Although it is less addictive than some “harder” drugs, it is possible to become addicted to marijuana. People who use marijuana recreationally can become addicted to the lifestyle associated with using marijuana, or may rely on smoking to sleep, maintain their appetite, or manage anxiety.
Marijuana’s image as a non-addictive drug can leave many people confused and unable to identify when they do have a problem. Determining if you are struggling with substance abuse will require a careful evaluation of yourself and your usage habits.
The following questions can be a starting point for determining if you have a problem with marijuana:
How often do you use marijuana?
How much money do you spend on marijuana?
Do you feel that you can’t sleep or eat without smoking marijuana first?
Do you use marijuana to manage anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues?
Does your use of marijuana interfere with your professional life or relationships?
Do you spend time with people you don’t like or enter uncomfortable situations just so you can use marijuana?
Do you find yourself wishing you could use marijuana less, but failing to do so?
By evaluating your answers to these questions, you may be able to identify if you have a substance abuse problem. If you are still unsure if you are using marijuana in an unhealthy way, please give us a call! We are happy to discuss these questions and other aspects of your marijuana use with you during a free consultation.
Treating marijuana addiction can be just as difficult as treating other substance abuse issues. You may need to focus your treatment on rethinking your lifestyle, separating from social groups that heavily use marijuana, or disconnecting from your misconceptions about the benefits of marijuana use.
