Smoking marijuana is something people turn to for various reasons. Sometimes it is to divert them from life’s obstacles. Feelings of anxiousness or depression, problems in their social life or personal environment are typically blamed. Although cannabis is not an ‘addictive’ drug per se, dependence can quickly form when used as a way to get away from life’s problems. Just how can marijuana users overcome their addiction?
First, we will start with some simple information about cannabis. Pot varies in power and form. The types include; skunk, oil, hash, grass, or dope. They all come from the same plant, but the strength varies according to the plant’s breed and how that plant was prepared to be taken. Cannabis can be prepared as a tea or as an ingredient in cakes but primarily it is smoked as a joint or pipe.
Marijuana can be used to aid sleep, decrease pain and enhance feelings of relaxation. A vital aspect in the addiction is the social element and ritualised preparation and sharing of cannabis laced cigarettes, known as ‘joints’, or ‘spliffs’.
Whilst a primary benefit is relaxation, there are some unpleasant side effects which can cancel out this, including paranoia, anxiety and panic attacks as well as short term memory loss, loss of co-ordination and attention, dizziness and hunger. A large number of people struggle to quit utilising cannabis even if it starts to affect them negatively both your mind and body. When this happens they almost always realise that they have a cannabis dependence.
Whether you eat, drink or smoke cannabis there are several physical symptoms that come with it. These may include memory loss, hypertension and heart disease, reduced fertility and elevated risk of psychological illness.
If cannabis addiction is affecting your life there is a fairly good chance that you have noticed its detrimental effects but you may still be unable to quit. The reason is that the dependency takes hold in the emotional levels of mind along with the conscious thinking parts.
Hypnotherapy will help remove the emotional dependency, making it simpler to regain control. Treatment can vary depending on your circumstances, so the place to start is to have an initial consultation to gauge your situation. By making use of hypnotherapy you can formulate a more effective way of getting rid of the cannabis habit. Perhaps it is time to make a change that can have a real positive effect on your life in so many ways. Hypnotherapy techniques for cannabis might just be the path to a better life.
Lyta Humphris from Hypnosis Devon based in Plymouth, Devon said, stopping smoking cannabis is a step by step programme using hypnotherapy to stop smoking cannabis, and to learn to break the habit and addiction cycle. In my opinion it helps to go to a centre dealing with drugs to re-enforce the programme.
