is pot really addictive?
    #3823321 - 02/23/05 06:36 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I can't stop smoking it on a daily basis even though I know I need to lay off. I tell myself over and over I won't smoke pot except on the weekends. Next day, I'm hitting the pipe again. They say pot isn't addictive, but I'm starting to wonder. Not a big deal. Just wondered what everyone thought.

It's really not. The only problem with quitting pot is that life tends to get a little dull..and you say to yourself "I don't NEED the pot, but I'm really bored. Lets hit up a few bowls"

If you just lay off for like 3 days it gets pretty easy. I only smoke on weekends. I quit pot every week =D

But my life is dull as hell so I'm not really bragging.

It really is psychologically addictive... But so is a good videogame.

It really isn't that physically addictive, no.

pot is no more addictive than food or masturbation.

(it's strictly about self control)

I think the problem would be for me, is its such a huge part of the lifestyle out here. Everyone I know and hangout with or whatever, smokes pot. Thats just what people do around here. Have to check into solitary confinment to quit. Shit man, I just found my mom's brownies the other day, no lie. There were some pieces missing out of it, and she thought I took em.

Fuck, im stoned now, prolly why I forgot and had to edit it in.

I don't think that proves it is addictive, just that you can use it all the time. That's the thing with pot, you can use it everyday without running into any real problems (for some, not all). People use it so much that it just becomes part of their life, and things just don't feel the same when they are not on it.

Is it physically additive? No. Psychologically addictive? Maybe.

Yes it is addictive. But so are a lot of things. Im addicted to internet porn. I cant go without it for a day. Im also addicted to Mexican Food. ITS when a addiction starts screwing things up in your life is when its a problem.

If you are smoking pot every day and cannot quit, that doesn't mean you are addicted, it means you are medicating some other condition (generalized anxiety, depression, bi-polar, etc). I smoke every day, and don't consider myself addicted, because I think I'm medicating some undiagnosed psychiatric condition.

The reason we smoke every day is cause it works good. No need to quit.

Note that when you stop, you will mistake the symptoms of your medicated condition coming back for withdrawl.

"Next day, I'm hitting the pipe again" he he he.... I can't stop giggling from that statement. Kinda makes you sound like you are addicted... or a crackhead. (no offense intended) I don't think it's addictive. I have to smoke cigerettees, I love to smoke pot. It's VERY different! Like many have said it just becomes so much a part of your life that you don't know what to do when you're not stoned.

Like other people have mentioned, I think my weed use is actually way of self-medication. And it works well. However, I also think it's a crutch that I'm going to have to get rid of at some point. I'm fine with that, it's no big deal. I'll know when I'm ready to let it go and not toke as much.

It's not at all addictive to me. I smoke once every couple of weeks or so, sometimes more sometimes less. I have never been tempted to smoke everyday, it's just not something I want to do everyday. I smoke once and a while because it helps me relax and it feels good, it's like having a couple beers on the weekend, there's no addiction there you just want to relieve some stress and have a good time after working hard all week.

I don't think I could ever get addicted to weed because it is impossible for me to do anything productive while high. Working, or in general doing anything other than sitting around is the last thing I want to do after smoking up.

It's about as addictive as videogames or the internet. If you really want to stop doing it then you can. I quit and it was easy, sure I was in a funk for the first week or two being clear-headed but I feel so much better now that I've quit.

It's habit-forming, not addictive, the problem is most people confuse habits with addictions. Once you've experienced real addictions (which hopefully you never do) you'll see what I mean. As far as the pot habit goes, willpower man, willpower...good luck with it.  :goodluck: :hug:
