You use marijuana regularly or you might even use it daily. What happens if you decide to stop using this drug? Whether you stop smoking marijuana because your job drug tests and you’re afraid of losing your employment or you simply wish to live a drug-free life, how will you know if you’re experiencing marijuana withdrawal?
You might feel that since the marijuana plant grows in nature, how bad can it be? The truth is, you can become addicted to any drug, whether it’s prescription, natural or illegal. The consequences of usage range from mild to severe. Many employers frown on the use of drugs, no matter what they are, and routinely drug test. Plus, not all states recognize legal marijuana usage, so you could lose your job or wind up in jail if you use marijuana.
What Marijuana Withdrawal Feels Like
The longer a person uses a drug and the more of the drug he or she takes, the more severe the withdrawal symptoms will be. Typically, signs of marijuana withdrawal include:
- Loss of focus
- Troubled sleep/insomnia
It can be extremely difficult to tackle addiction on your own. Trying to stop cold turkey can be very uncomfortable and in some cases, dangerous. Once you stop your regular use of marijuana, expect your second and third days of withdrawal to be the worst. You may suffer chills and sweat profusely while the drug slowly ebbs out of your system. Due to this discomfort, it’s not surprising to see that many people can’t stop using on their own.
However, when you’re ready to break free of a marijuana addiction, there’s help waiting for you.
