The Solution: How to Quit
It’s no secret that smoking cannabis can have negative effects on your health. In fact, smoking cannabis is linked to an increased risk of developing cancer. If you’re a cannabis smoker, you may be looking for a way to quit. The good news is that there are a number of different ways to quit smoking cannabis, and we’re here to help.
Set a date to quit
The first step is to set a date when you will stop smoking cannabis. This may be a day, week, month or year in the future. Once you have set a quit date, stick to it.
Don’t try to go ‘cold turkey’ without any help. Quitting without support is much harder and increases your chances of relapsing.
There are many ways to get support to quit, including:
-Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
-Therapy with a counsellor or psychologist
Get rid of all your smoking paraphernalia
Now that you’ve made the decision to quit smoking cannabis, it’s time to get rid of all your smoking paraphernalia. This includes pipes, bongs, papers, lighters, and of course, your stash. It may be hard to part with your favourite pipe or bong, but it’s important to remember that these objects are just reminders of your smoking habit. If you keep them around, it will be that much harder to resist the temptation to smoke again.
So toss them out, give them away, or whatever you need to do to get rid of them for good. Once they’re gone, you won’t have any visual cues reminding you of smoking which will make it that much easier to stay on track.
Change your routine
Cannabis smokers often develop routines around their smoking, such as smoking before bed or after meals. If you find yourself smoking at the same time every day, try to mix up your routine. Smoke at different times of the day, in different places, or with different people. This can help break the association between certain activities and smoking cannabis.
Find a support group
When you’re trying to quit smoking cannabis, it can be helpful to talk to people who are going through the same thing. You can share your experiences and learn from other people’s mistakes. There are many online forums and support groups that can help you stay on track.
Another option is to join a smoking cessation program offered by your local community center or hospital. These programs usually last for a few weeks and include group counseling sessions.
If you’re not sure where to start, your doctor or a mental health professional can help you find a support group in your area.
The Benefits of Quitting
Smoking cannabis can have a negative effect on your health, your finances, and your relationships. If you’re ready to quit, there are many resources available to help you. You can find support groups, counselors, and even programs to help you quit. You may also want to consider attending a cannabis Anonymous meeting.
You will save money
It’s no secret that smoking cannabis can be expensive. If you smoke multiple times a day, your expenses can quickly add up. Quitting smoking will help you save money that you can use for other things.
In addition to saving money on cannabis, you may also save money on other things. For example, if you quit smoking, you may be able to reduce your insurance rates. Many insurance companies offer discounts to nonsmokers.
You will improve your health
Smoking cannabis can have a negative impact on your health, even if you don’t have a pre-existing condition. The act of smoking itself is harmful to your lungs, and cannabis smoke contains many of the same toxins and carcinogens as tobacco smoke. These toxins can damage your respiratory system and increase your risk of lung cancer.
Smoking cannabis also puts you at risk for other types of cancer, including throat, mouth, and esophageal cancer. This is because smoking damages the cells in your body, making them more susceptible to cancer-causing agents.
In addition to increasing your risk of cancer, smoking cannabis can also negatively impact your heart health. Cannabis smoke contains harmful chemicals that can increase your heart rate and blood pressure, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes. Smoking cannabis can also worsen symptoms of anxiety and depression, as well as trigger psychotic episodes in people who are predisposed to mental illness.
If you’re looking to improve your overall health, quitting smoking cannabis is a good place to start. You’ll see an immediate improvement in your lung function and a reduction in your risk of developing cancer or other serious health problems.
You will have more time
Quitting smoking cannabis will give you more time. It takes about 20 minutes to smoke one marijuana cigarette. Multiply that by the number of times you smoke each day, and you’ll see how much time you can save by quitting.
You’ll also save money. A pack of cigarettes costs about $6. If you smoke one pack a day, you’ll save $2,190 in a year.
