Why I'm Glad I Quit Smoking Marijuana: 5 Incredible Benefits
Many people would love to stop smoking marijuana. Perhaps they realise that it's becoming harder to control their habit, or perhaps they realise that the habit is taking control of their life. I will openly admit that not everyone who smokes weed suffers these negative aspects. However, if you believe that you are truly addicted, then there are many benefits to weaning yourself off grass.
I experienced numerous benefits when I finally stopped smoking marijuana. This is what I discovered:
1. No longer a slave to the green bud. Whether or not I wanted to admit it, weed smoking had taken over my life; I had become a slave to the green bud. How often have you gone through the day thinking about when your next opportunity will be to light up? If you're anything like me, it was as soon as possible. As soon as I had my first joint, no matter what time it was, that would spell the end of my day and all hope of getting anything constructive done. If you finally learn how to stop smoking marijuana, these restrictions can finally be lifted, and you can be free to live your life the way you wish.
2. Money saver. Let's face facts. If you add up the total amount of money you spend each year on weed, I'm pretty sure you would be shocked. We often concentrate on the physical and mental health benefits of trying to stop smoking marijuana; however, the financial benefits are unbelievable. I would never have called myself a heavy pot smoker, but I was spending an average of $30-$40 a week. Over the period of a year this habit that was getting me nowhere was costing me up to $1500-$2000. Once I finally decided to stop smoking marijuana I found a new sort of freedom and was able to afford many things I had always wanted. This eventually created a better lifestyle for me.
3. Clearer thinking. One of the most important benefits that I found after I eventually stopped smoking was the ability to think a lot clearer. It is unbelievable how much weed smoking actually takes over brain and affects everyday life. Within just a few short weeks of giving up smoking, I found that my thinking was far clearer. Things made a lot more sense than they used to. One of the major issues I managed to overcome when I finally did stop smoking marijuana was paranoia. I'm sure as a weed smoker you are fully aware of how everyday situations can make you feel extremely paranoid. Eventually, I discovered there was no rhyme or reason behind this.
4. Greater motivation. Another great benefit I experienced was a change in mindset. Personally, I suffered from a severe lack of motivation, and this wasn't helped by my sagging energy levels. Unfortunately, once I smoked a joint that was it for me; I knew I wasn't going to achieve anything for the rest of the day. My mindset was such that even if there was something extremely urgent that I had to complete by the end of the day, I just wasn't motivated enough to get it done. Of course, this eventually had a big impact on my life and on the way potential employers, family and friends viewed me. I was an extremely unmotivated individual who couldn't really be trusted or relied upon.
5. Increased sense of self-worth. Weed smoking not only affected my thinking and overall motivation, it affected the way I viewed myself. After years of self abuse, I found that when I finally did manage to stop smoking my opinion of myself and my self-worth increased dramatically. I was felt almost unstoppable. Because I had finally managed to overcome a lifetime addiction, I truly believed that anything was possible. When you do believe in yourself, and when you finally realise that you are worth so much more, you actually find that this positive attitude will make you far more successful in both your personal and business life.
If you, like many, are struggling with what you believe is a weed addiction—and if would like to enjoy many of the benefits mentioned above—it may be time for you to stop smoking marijuana. If you honestly believe it's time for you kick the habit and start living life to the fullest once again, I urge you to do so.
