Reasons to Stop Smoking Weed

Looking for motivation? Check out our top 16 list.


 




You’ve been listening to your nagging inner voice a lot lately, and it’s getting louder and louder, pleading with you to give up the ganga. You may feel ready to quit, but it’s important to take time to identify what your reasons for wanting to stop smoking weed really are. You’ll need to remind yourself of those reasons when the going gets tough.

Before we start this section, I have to tell you that most of the people that contact me are at the very first stage of quitting. Most have not gone through the process of evaluating how their weed habits have negatively impacted their lives. They know that they feel lazy and unmotivated, but that is often just the tip of the iceberg. For each person, the reasons to stop smoking weed are different, but generally it has to do with levels of importance or relevance. The reasons themselves aren’t difficult concepts to grasp and affect everyone to some degree. it’s just a matter of which ones matter to you the most.

Identify which reasons strike a chord with you, and write them down for yourself. Elaborate on what you have read here, and examine each reason as it pertains to your own circumstances. After you are armed with some valid personal reasons to make the decision, we will show you some ways to stop smoking weed.

coin jar

Save Money. Unless you have your own hydropnic grow room, you are spending more money than you probably think on your pot habit. If you do have a hydro setup, then you check out my other site: www.QuitGrowingHydroponicChronic.com (just kidding!). I don’t think there is anyone who would disagree with me when it comes to this point. The money you spend on weed could buy you something nice, or take you on a vacation… whatever. Especially if you are the one who smokes your friend(s) up most of the time, it can get costly. It is funny though, money simply isn’t the reason most people latch onto when they are making the choice to stop smoking weed, it’s a reason that becomes apparent later.

bored

Wasted Time. How much time have you spent playing video games, staring at an ant, vacuuming, watching Star Trek re-runs or YouTube videos, or picking through the racks at the local Goodwill? Not your pass time? Tell me what is then (use our email form) because I can just about guarantee that whatever it is you do when you are stoned for hours on end, it isn’t all that productive. “Wasted time” has to be the most common complaint I hear from my QWAS subscribers. Please be aware that wasted time quickly turns into “wasted life”, which doesn’t sounds as benign.

Social Retardation (Impaired). How stoned are you? Better figure it out because Nancy is about to come over and start talking to you about God knows what. Maybe Nancy is your neighbor and mother of three whose kids you used to baby sit, maybe shes that gorgeous brunette you don’t have the courage to ask out. Maybe She is your mother and she has the nose of a bloodhound. Whatever… Maybe Nancy is actually Tom… reverse genders… etc. etc. My point is simply that you might be so stoned that you can’t figure out what the f*ck they have been talking about for the last 5 minutes, or worse, what you’ve been talking about! Even worse, maybe you are burnt out and feeling irritable and acting just plain rude. Social situations can be tough to navigate when you are baked, jonesing, or burnt. For most of the people that contact me, social situations are something to avoid, which takes us to our next brilliant reason to stop smoking weed…

hermit

Reclusivity. People like to romanticize joint smoking as a social lubricant. But, for you and I, smoking weed isn’t just reserved for social outings and poker night. Nope, for you and I getting high goes just as well with waking up, lunch breaks, after work drive home, dinner and a movie, those burnt out hours after the movie, and then before bed. But wait, smoking weed in public isn’t really acceptable, so our habit is largely confined to our homes and maybe one or two friends homes… but mostly our own homes. So what do we do? Stay home. Stay home and get high, and busy ourselves with TV and other forms of entertainment. Talking on the phone is terrifying, and hearing a knock at the door is doubly terrifying. Say “Hello” to our friendly neighborhood recluse… You!

Dr Jeckyll Mr Hyde

Uncontrollable mood swings. I have known enough people whose moods are dependent on the amount of pot they have smoked that day, or in the last hour, to know that this one is a big one. If you can’t admit to yourself, let me help you out… You aren’t that nice to be around when you aren’t high. You know you are cranky, but you still won’t attribute it to your weed habit. For those of us on the outside, watching you go from happy stoner to grumpy and irritable burnt out assh*le is just not that much fun. Chronic marijuana use does dramatically affect your normal mood and emotional behavior patterns. Whatever your normal used to be, your new normal is highly regulated by whether you are high or not.

anxiety attacks

Anxiety disorder. You don’t have to listen to me, Dr. Drew has been telling you for years on the radio and on TV. Prolonged marijuana use can definitely lead to severe anxiety disorder. I have read case studies on this and listened to interviews of people who smoked weed regularly for 10+ years, then quit and found themselves suffering from anxiety. As someone who suffers from anxiety (post marijuana use – 15yrs), I can tell you that it can be just the worst. I have had to leave restaurants in the middle of meals, walk out of parties, and even abandon my wife at coffee shops and stores. I have laid in bed obsessing over heart attack symptoms and found myself chewing Aspirin in the kitchen and 3am. This is something you don’t want to have to deal with. I am not saying that everyone is going to suffer from anxiety after living the life of a chronic pot smoker, but many of you will. It is certainly a reason to quit, and I wish I had smartened up sooner.

As further evidence, I have a close friend who was forced to move home after his anxiety became so bad, he could no longer live on his own. Now he smokes weed again every day and still lives at home. I am not judging him, he is a great person, I am only illustrating for you how anxiety can cripple a persons ability to function.

low sex drive

Decreased sex drive and dating woes. There are a lot of things that act as aphrodisiacs, unfortunately for you, weed isn’t one of them! Unless your girlfriend or boyfriend loves to suck down oysters after a bowl of hash oil and then hit the sheets, you might have a problem. Speaking from personal experience, my own pot habit definitely reduced my desire to be romantic or think about sex. Sure, the odd time when my girlfriend and I would get high together, it was fun, but in general being stoned didn’t get my engines revving for romance. Most of my subscribers report the same problem, being stoned just doesn’t make you want to exert oneself in the bedroom.

When it comes to subject of dating, I get tons of letters. These letters can be divided into two groups: one, those who feel inadequate and embarrassed about their habit, and don’t have the confidence to date. two, those who feel inadequate and embarrassed about their habit and have just met someone they really like, but who doesn’t smoke pot. And, of course there are more complex categories like couples who smoke together, couples where only one smokes, etc… but for the purposes here, I am just highlighting the daters and potential daters.

dog

Loved ones and family. All families are different when it comes to marijuana use, but generally the parents set the tone for what is acceptable and not acceptable. As we grow up and start our own families, it becomes our responsibility to determine what the family position on weed is going to be. There is no right or wrong here. I am not interested in preaching about what you should or shouldn’t do. I only encourage you to evaluate how your weed habit has affected your relationships with your brothers, sisters, parents, grandparents, cousins, etc. Evaluate how your habit affects your relationships with your friends, spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend, and co-workers. It is important to determine whether you are happy with these relationships or if they suffer because your pot habit always comes first.

I missed burying my childhood dog because I decided I would rather get stoned and jam with my band. Now, I live with the regret that I did not even show up to honor my dog Heath for the 15 years of loyal and uncompromising love he gave to me and my family. You get the idea.

kids

Kids! I can’t believe I left this one out until now… Those of us with kids have it even more complicated. Do you keep it a secret from your kids? Do you plan to one day introduce your kids to pot and smoke up with them? Will you encourage or discourage them, and what kind of example will you set? This one gets complicated, especially when parents have conflicting viewpoints and the interests of the child to contend with. Ask yourself “Is my weed habit making me a better parent? Does it make a difference? Is it making me a worse parent?” I am not capable of answering these questions for you, but I am sure that whatever your situation is, kids make it complicated.

How has weed affected your relationships? Write and tell me your story using our online email form.

tall ship captain

Inaction and Impotence. Probably the single most commonly relayed complaint when people seek help with their pot habits… I continually hear “If I hadn’t been smoking weed all those years I would have ________ by now…” Agreed, sister. You probably would have been Captain of a Tall Ship by now or whatever you dreamed about as a kid. If there was ever a reason to stop smoking weed, it would be to leave your life of inaction and impotence behind you, and get out there and start pursuing the dreams you have.

study

Learning disability á la Marijuana. That’s right, you are impairing your ability to learn. There are extensive studies to indicate that things learned in one state, for example when you are high, are not easily remembered when you are sober, and vice versa. Can you say drop-out? My university years could have been a whole lot better. I spent 5 years a two different universities and didn’t graduate with a degree from either. This was in large part due to the amount of weed I was smoking. Going to class stoned and then taking a test sober just doesn’t work. Your education suffer if you continue to smoke weed every day. Guaranteed.

insomnia

Sleep better. It’s a well known fact that smoking weed before bed interrupts or disrupts your natural sleep cycles. even though you have convinced yourself that you can’t sleep without it, you are actually sabotaging your healthy sleep rhythms every night. After you quit weed, you will get better rest, feel less stressed and have more energy throughout the day. Getting the proper amount of sleep is a key factor in staying healthy, reducing stress, and ultimately living longer.

skunk

Pot quality just isn’t that good most of the time. Unless you are lucky enough to live around the corner from a marijuana dispensary, the skunk weed your dealer serves up every third time you pick up a quarter just isn’t that good. I remember feeling really joyful and “high” just a few times. Most of the time, getting high felt warm and fuzzy, but also made me feel kind of heavy and lethargic. No one ever bought a gram, smoked a crappy joint that made them feel like garbage, and then flushed the rest… Oh no… we can be as discriminating as we want in the rest of our lives, but seldom would a pot-head flush the rest of a mediocre gram.

Herpes from sharing joints. Haven’t thought about this one had you? But let me assure it is very real. I have a family member who contracted herpes from smoking joints and an infection in his nose resulted in multiple surgeries. He’s ok now but he doesn’t look the same anymore. Next time you get passed a joint, think twice.

jeff spicoli

Stamina, Physical Fitness, Health. Don’t listen to your lazy arm chair philosophizing stoner buddy when he tells you weed is good for you. Smoking is death on your lungs. No question. If you’re a chronic, then your lung capacity sucks, and you probably can’t run two blocks without feeling like you are going to pass out face down in a puddle of p*ss. Pathetic. This is not healthy and lack of exercise is the leading cause of serious health problems of every kind, and also a leading cause of depression.

I am a surfer, and I can tell you in no uncertain terms, my surfing was definitely worse if I was stoned. I guess Spicoli would be ashamed of me. In fact, this isn’t helping my case, since Spicoli still reigns supremely cool!

drug test

Random Drug Testing. I confess that I didn’t think of this one on my own… One of our subscribers told me that he couldn’t go for the job he wanted because they do random drug testing. While I don’t care to debate the pro’s and con’s of random drug testing in the workplace, I can tell you that it’s a reality for many government and private sector jobs. For many people, the thought of testing positive in the workplace is agonizing. For many others, weed becomes a barrier between they life they have, and the life they’d like to have.

There. I just gave you 15 pretty decent reasons to stop smoking weed. Some of them will be more relevant to you than others, but I am sure there’s something in there that applies to you. Now that you are armed with some pretty good reasons to stop smoking weed, you are going to be looking for some tried, tested and true ways to stop smoking weed.

      Get a super soft… we’re not trying to send you to the dentists with bleeding gums… yeah – use that tactic when you need to. It’s sort of a quick fix distraction technique. But the effect builds because really what you are doing is retraining your brain.

    WoW, I have to say this site has some of the only reasons that actually make sense to quit. Poeple always tell me it makes you dumb and is bad for you, and I knew it was to some extent, but I never wanted to believe it because I was giving into my cravings and could never actually stay away from it. Weed is a good thing, but once you start to smoke it regularly it can muddle your priorities up. I will be e-mailing you with my plan and how it goes and if I succeed :) good luck to all you guys, I love weed but It’s time to give it up. . . because It’s just not me.

    Another reason I want to quit is to go into ministry for THE LORD. I can’t be a stoner & preach the WORD. This is my main reason but I want to be a better quality human being as well.

      If you feel that there is something standing in the way of your goals (some call them dreams), then a change can only be positive for you. Please check back in with us, leave a comment, so we can follow your progress. You’re our first stoner turned preacher-man! Awesome. You can do it.

    Also for reasons to quit, I use weed to avoid any kind of emotional reaction I might be having to events in my life. Someone makes me angry, I will leave and have a few tokes. It means instant happiness and calmness, but it probably isn’t great. I haven’t dealt with the problem at all, just medicated myself into feeling better about it.
    It’s like, not experiencing life at it’s fullest capacity.
    A memory makes me sad, I get stoned and stop thinking about it. I’m not processing what my mind wants me to.
    It’s sad.

    My boyfriend is trying to start smoking again. The only he had to quit was because they’d drug test him at work. I admit, I smoked on OCCASION. But now that i think about it, I don’t want my boyfriend to get into that lifestyle like his brother and father. He lives with them and is constantly tempted. The only way he’ll smoke is if I agree to let him (and I wont – so he wont smoke) which is good I suppose, but I want him to not want to smoke on his own; no matter what my say is. Help please? :(

    • QWAS Admin April 4, 2013 8:58 pm Reply

      Hi Julie. Well, you’re in a bit of a difficult situation. You don’t want him to resent you if it’s something he really wants to do. Even worse, you don’t want him hiding it from you. This can drive a wedge between you two. What you can do is decide what you want. If you’re OK being with someone who smokes sometimes, often, or all the time, with you or without you, then that’s your choice. If you really don’t want to be with a pothead, then you need to make that choice for yourself. You can let him know what you want for yourself, and then he can decide what is important to him. If it is your relationship, then he will have made the decision on his own. Obviously if they’re testing at work, he should abstain or find another job. He has probably figured that out. I do sympathize with anyone who has a family that smokes weed all the time and can’t offer support.

    • Emma January 26, 2015 8:18 pm Reply

      I hope this doesn’t apply to you, but in my experience “my girlfriend is making me do it” never remains an effective motivator for long. Supporting and reinforcing someone in their own decision is another story, and great, but it’s very different from forbidding and coercion (the fear of punishment), which can always be rationalized away and forgotten with a joint.

      • QWAS Admin January 26, 2015 10:19 pm Reply

        Motivation should come from within. External pressure that comes from a partner/spouse will only create resentment for both parties. That said, it’s perfectly fair for one person to issue an ultimatum. It’s up to the other person to decide what they really want. Ultimately if interests and goals are not aligned, things can get stormy.

    I’m not sure how to begin so I’ll start by saying im twenty two years of age.. I grew up in ky with a loving and caring family. Had a great childhood and everything but things changed as I got older. I started hanging with the wrong crowd and as a result my grades strated slacking and I found no interest in the things I normally loved to do. This was all due to marijuana. Like most stoners im sure im not the only one who did just do be cool at first, but as years passed my addiction grew. I even had a big problem with cocaine. With that being said I kicked the coke habit with no problem. That was three years ago. Ill be turning twenty three in a cpl months and I’m still addicted to marijuana. I have not completed any accomplishments in life nor have I made any life goals or changes. my family resents me because of all the potential im wasting and my relationship with my girlfriend just gets worse and worse. Arguments pretaining to the choices I make and the money that gets spent on mary jane. But this morning is different..Id rather fail and something when I know I tried(sober), rather then failing before even trying. Im not looking for any sympathy because I know it was my ultimate decision to hit that bowl or roll those blunts. I’m just looking for ppl like me trying to break this terrible habit and move on to more positive lifestyles. Please feedback is very much needed!!

      Hi Josh, The good news is – you’re 22… it’s not over for you yet my friend. Look, I was very much like you. Wasting my potential much to the dismay of my parents. Not to say that I was a couch potato glued to a Playstation, I’ve always immersed myself in projects or pursuits, but that so much never came to fruition, and relationships suffered. Over the years my motivation to complete things dwindled. The “idea” became enough for me, and my stoner mind loved entertaining elaborate plans whether anything materialized or not. What I’m hearing from you is that you have the desire to point yourself in a new direction, and not only for your family and your lady, but for yourself. Your inner voice is nagging more and more and you know that a big shift in lifestyle is something you genuinely want. You’re 90% of the way there my friend, and that may a point that has been lost on you up until now. The desire to change (in this case quit your habit) is the most important driver in this process, the rest is all strategy and technique. What you need to do now is to prepare yourself for your first day, week, month without weed. Planning is so important, so start coming up with some activities, and alternative schedules. Whatever you do, don’t start this process before you have a replacement for each part of the day you’d normally spend stoned with friends, by yourself, doing whatever it is you normally do. Let me know what you come up with.

    I´m afraid of my level of anxiety…. :(

    • QWAS Admin October 9, 2013 4:46 pm Reply

      Hi Joana, yep – anxiety can be debilitating, but there are some things you can do to manage it. First, let me reiterate that I am not a doctor, and these are suggestions. #1 get a prescription for low dose Xanax (.25mg). It’s likely that you’d rarely take it, but that the comfort of knowing you have it will help keep panic and anxiety from snowballing. #2 Muscle & breathing exercise: I have personally prevented countless panic attacks using this method. First, take a slow deep breath and fill up your lungs completely. As you are breathing in, flex all the muscles in your left leg as hard as you can. Hold the breath keeping your muscles flexed for about 10 seconds. Then, release your breath slowly through pursed lips. At the same time release your muscles, slowly, as the air escapes your lungs. Now, move to your left arm, right arm, and right leg. At the end of a rotation, check your anxiety levels. Do more cycles as needed. Usually 2-3 will take the edge off and allow you to function and get on with whatever you are doing. Just two suggestions that have worked for me. Remember – weed is not a good way to manage anxiety. It’s inconvenient, makes you smell like Spicoli, and doesn’t help you develop real coping skills.

    after 25 years of chronic use and 1000 attempts to quit I am ready. I am nervous about how I will handle the cravings and feelings that come up. But I want to do it and I want to live a better life. May I succeed this time, in thanks/

    • QWAS Admin December 29, 2013 7:46 am Reply

      Every day you don’t smoke is a triumph. At the end of the day before bed – praise yourself. You’ll look forward to saying nice things about yourself so much more than you ever could for some stinky old joint. Praising your achievements is so important. We don’t say enough nice things to ourselves, this is your chance! There are ways to beat cravings and negative feelings – these are small but difficult battles to fight on your way to a better life – and worth doing.

    What a blessing this web site is. For some reason, it really clicks with me and this is the perfect time.

    I never even smoked until later in life. Well, it’s only been three years but it’s time to stop.
    I though it helped music writing creativity but then I realized “How can I create anything when I can’t r
    remember what I just played?” And, as someone who has suffered from anxiety naturally, pot almost made my life unbearable. Ick. I won’t miss it. I’ve seen it cause many lives to stagnate-TRUTH. Dreams? What dreams?

    Thanks for this great site. Today is day 1 for me. I have quit more”serious,” drugs with strong and lasting success but I just cannot seem to leave weed. The past few weeks I have made attempts and I have lots of reasons – namely that I want to be free of dependence and the endless associated various states of withdrawl. The thing is my life is going pretty well at the moment and the moment I quit everything seems thrown into disarray physically, psychologically whatever. And I quickly loose my resolve to quit especially when I am depressed or worse than depressed in that early numb phase I often experience around the first few days. I smoked a lot as a teenager. Could I have simply adjusted to “optimal functioning,” on weed. Is my sober self no longer really me. This is scary. But I know doing this experiment will be revealing. I would like to be aware of my life and the many notes and flavors which constitute it. I am sick of the constant self seeking which comes through addiction and I think I have been through enough to be free today. Expecting the withdrawal effects I think has been key in my gaining more and more time. I think it is important not to expect too much of myself these days. To immerse myself in mindless time passing activities until my brain can sort of get better. Anyway I know that common experience and sharing is very useful. I am surrounded by people but going through something so intense and lonely in that no one knows what it is like and so it is great to have all of you guys. Whether you sucsede or fail I am not sure, but I do not from my own life and those around me the differences between those who try and those who are complacent can literally be the difference between life and death. All these little lame attempts of mine in many ways have saved my life. Anyway good luck to you all. I hope to make it. I just do not feel to physically good :(

  14. Shannon March 17, 2017 11:07 pm Reply

    I have smoked pot on and off for the last 28 years, mostly on, hard to escape when I was surrounded by it from a child, and had family that grew it. Was common at the age of 15 to sit around a table out the back and smoke bongs with each other. Did I want this life, No I didnt and I can tell you that it has not made my life easier but it has helped me to cope with a life of sadness that I wanted to forget or has it?? I know that when I dont smoke I have more energy and am better at communicating myself to others but mostly I am a recluse, I live alone every other week and with my kids the other half. I choose not to go out and socialise as I usually prefer to spend time alone getting high and feeling sorry for myself and the bad choices that I wanted so much to leave behind at a young age but seemed to get further and further addicted. .

    • QWAS Admin March 18, 2017 5:14 am Reply

      Hi Shannon, Thanks for sharing. I’ll start by saying that 28 years of smoking pot is a lot. I myself only smoked for about 15. What I can tell you is this: I hear your inner voice coming through loud and clear – “I know that when I dont smoke I have more energy and am better at communicating myself to others”. I guess the question is, how much do you want to change your current situation? You know you feel better when you aren’t getting high and you know you are self-medicating to deal with painful thought patterns. You also know that self-medicating does not produce some joyous result – “spend time alone getting high and feeling sorry for myself”. So pot isn’t doing for you what you wish it could. You already know these things. Instead of getting high, maybe try some therapy sessions so you can confront some of the pain you’re feeling. You’re going to need to start thinking differently about your time when you’re not with the kids. It’s no longer allocated for bong hits and depression, it’s for physical activity and a new hobby. Doesn’t matter what it is – but you need to find a replacement for that time and you need to avoid the usual triggers. You said your parents shaped who you are now with their willingness to expose you to pot – a choice they made for you in many ways since you were only 15. Now you have the choice to do things differently for your kids and to do that you’ll need to make better choices for yourself. You can kick this habit. Lot’s of people do it everyday, even those who have smoked for 40 years. In 30 days or less you can get the THC out of your system. In 6 months you can retrain your brain and break the cycle of repetition. So will you do it? I know you when you’re ready and you have a plan, you will succeed. Pot does not define you. It is not a part of you. It’s a habit. A deeply entrenched one but still just a habit. Go ahead. start planning your quit day: http://quitweedandsucceed.com/steps-to-quit-weed/
