Cannabis is nothing but the parts of the plants from where drugs such as marijuana and hashish are prepared. Smoking cannabis is hazardous to health and it is wonderful when people actually decide to stop inhaling them.
There are three steps that will be of use to you in this quitting process.
1. Stay focused
This is the foremost thing. Visualize the result of quitting in your mind. Remember to stay focused on the end result. Also, always think of the potential outcome even as you go through the painful and stressful process of quitting.
Answer certain questions in your mind that will help you stay focused. Ask yourself the reason for withdrawal. Who/what helped you decide on quitting? Ensure that you answer these questions from your heart. The answers will help you chart out a clear plan for the withdrawal.
2. Learn from Previous Mistakes
During the process of withdrawal, you will probably be trying out many things. Some may work while some may not. However, what matters is if you are able to identify the mistakes and also learn from them. It is common for all to commit errors, and you need not unnecessarily worry about the ones that you committed provided you take corrective measures in future.
Some people who are trying to quit smoking cannabis actually carry a notepad wherever they go and note down their learning from each mistake they commit. This helps them in getting everything in order and eventually encourages them to quit without much pain and stress. The best and most obvious tip would be to stay away from the people who are addicted to similar habits.
3. Treat Yourself with a Reward
Make sure you get yourself a reward every time you pull away from a smoke. This will motivate you to try harder next time. And never ever reward yourself with a smoke. That obviously makes matters worse. Gift yourself a lunch or dinner in your favorite restaurant every time you succeed. Or probably buy your favorite chocolate bar or better still, throw a party with your better half. Ensure that you have a list of rewards ready for all the times you stay away from smoking cannabis.
Withdrawing from smoking cannabis is a very tough decision to make. However, once you decide, it is best to follow the methods discussed and thus achieve the goals that you set for yourself.
