Has anyone been addicted to marijuana? It does not give me anxiety but I can't stop using it as a distraction. Any advice or kind words would be helpful. This is the first time I'm addressing this with myself.
Everybody says it's benign, but nothing could be further from the truth. That **** is the devil. I got schizophrenia because of marijuana use and it destroyed my life.
Well, if you're not addicted yet are worried about how you're using it you could stop for a while. I mean there are lots and lots aaaand lots of other potential distractions. Also that's the first time I've ever heard someone say cannabis has ruined their life, 99.5% say otherwise. Just further evidence that some people just handle things differently.

Try to substitute that for less serious or at least legal addiction - coffee, online games, chocolate, and cut down on that. Or find yourself a reason to stop (my GF for example /hopefully for good/ stopped because she moved with me from the ghetto she was born in into a new home in a polite part of town). Anything is better than drugs. There are bilions of others distractions in this world, just find yourself another one. Good luck :)

I always "want" to stop and say I'm going to...."this is my last bag" but I never do.....I need a better idea because it doesn't motivate me and it's a serious distraction. When I should be doing work I smoke and watch TV. :/
@sarah321 It takes will power and a sense of responsibility. If you know you have something to do then do it, the weed will still be there when you're done.
Thanks for the words of encouragement.
Addicted for life....Every time I go back and try and do it once it turns into twice, then three times, than eventually it's all day everyday being high and I can't deal with life unless I smoked a half hour before.
So yeah it's addicting just depends who you talk to.
it's those harder drugs that aren't addicting....like come on now I was able to do other stuff and quit after a week or month, weed it's impossible and goes on for years and years.....of course what can't kill you is all good right....wrong it'll kill your motivation to do anything with your life, mess you're brain up from being nothing but high all the time, kill off anything else that might have been good about yourself etc.....was kidding about the other drugs not being addicting....but still I find weed to be the worst out of all of them.

thank you so much. I'm having a really hard time quitting. I have lost all motivation for anything and my passion to do what I want with my career. Any tips you have for me would be amazing.....
For me it was just that, having lost motivation and passion for life. Turning into a stoner is really really depressing, like why couldn't I have been a upper drug addict right....sorry random don't mind me.....hard drugs aren't the answer obviously.
That's my tip just make sure you are sick of being sick day to day from using and just stop. The first few days for me aren't great, but after that for me at least the cravings get less, until I have a sober mind and thinking of getting high just kinda freaks me out.
Just remember weed is all hype, the people that love it and fight for it are stoners themselves and can't and will not ever see a life for themselves with out the daily weed smoking. That's not us at least I don't think it is, and I can tell you want to be a stronger person and not have this as a crutch to fall back on in life.
Whenever I get sober I start rollerblading again...I'm quite good at it so it's allot of fun. That helps as well as drinking lots of water or soda water even better. Just reminding yourself that things will get better if you let it.
Can't say meetings ever helped me, but you can come on here and report back as much as you'd like :) Helps all of us in overcoming this so called SAFE ALL GOOD BETTER THAN BEER ETC OF A DRUG.
The way I see it weed kills, not psychically but emotionally...

thank you very much for your insight. it's definitely been a crutch for me to stop me from pursuing what I should be pursuing.
