Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug. Well, that was the story when it was still an unregulated, illegal and illicit market.
Now, the market is shifting, legalization is spreading, and THC is bringing on a whole new range of issues and causing more people to be addicted.
Although marijuana is just as addictive as alcohol, opioids, or stimulants, it looks different on the surface and may make you question if you have an addiction at all.
It doesn’t usually come with the classic ‘rock bottom’ moment you hear others talk about in their addiction stories, and the signs and symptoms aren’t so easily identified.
But that doesn’t change the fact that people are suffering, they need resources, and they need support.
In, A Doctor’s Opinion About Marijuana Addiction, it says:
“The unfortunate truth is that the lack of serious, early consequences to marijuana addiction allow for a long, slow decline, often without recognition, resulting in later-stage addiction before the problem is confronted. An individual may wake up years into this chronic illness, without a reasonable understanding of how their life got so far off track. Often one has no major medical or legal problems, no sudden tragedy that drives the search for an answer. However, isolation from friends and family, loss of interest and lack of participation in those activities that used to bring joy, and the crushing weight of missed opportunities add up.”
If any of this sounds familiar to you, you won’t want to miss this episode, my friend.
