Quitting smoking doesn’t just mean quitting cigarettes. If you smoke marijuana, then it is just as important for you to kick your smoking habit.
Why do People Still Smoke Pot after Quitting Cigarettes
Because marijuana is not physically as harmful as tobacco smoke, many people justify their marijuana habit as the healthier of the two. And thus they keep smoking pot. There are, however, two major mistakes being made here.
Impact of Marijuana on Your Physical Health
Intentionally inhaling smoke into the lungs is never healthy. Marijuana smoke still comes with a variety of chemicals and additives that can harm or irritate the lungs, particularly for people suffering from medical conditions like asthma and other chronic respiratory infections.
Impact of Marijuana on Your Mental Health
Marijuana is dangerous to your mental health. Smoking marijuana increases panic, paranoia, anxiety and depression. It leaves smokers floating in the smoke clouds of false euphoria only to come back to life on earth feeling less satisfied with reality. Furthermore, marijuana damages short-term memory and hinders the brain’s ability to learn and retain vital information.
Your life is not only dependent on the health of your physical body. Your life is dependent on the health of your mind. The physical and the psychological work together to create optimal health in human beings. If you avoid cigarettes, but smoke marijuana, then you are still harming one aspect of this two-fold system. The more marijuana you smoke, the more you fry your brain. The more you fry your brain, the worse you will feel about yourself and others. It is, indeed, a vicious cycle.
What Can I do to Stop Smoking Marijuana
If you feel like you have a pot smoking habit that is out of control, there are many ways that you can get help. One particularly useful method of pot smoking cessation is hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy will teach you to be more mindful, giving you the mental tools necessary to build healthy, constructive attitudes and beliefs towards life in general and yourself in particular. You don’t need pot. You don’t need to get high to feel good about yourself and the life you live. That power resides in your mind. All you need to do is learn to release it.
