When I finally quit weed early January 2009, I went researching online to find information that would assist me stay clean. I had stopped pot so many times before in my 20+ year pot smoking career, that THIS time i really needed some help so that I didn’t smoke weed again after a few months. I actually needed a new way of looking at myself!
Weed smoking was a daily part of my life for over 20 years. As I had managed to integrate weed smoking into my every day life quite effortlessly (or so I thought), I didn’t feel that I had a compelling reason to stop for good. After all, I was still able to stay reasonably healthy, eat well, do yoga and other sports, have a good relationship with my partner friends and family…BUT, this was my way of not really facing my addiction.
It all changed when I researched and found the Marijuana Anon (MA) website, and read through the following questions. My responses and the knowing it bought me hit me like a mac truck. For the first time in my life, I understood that I had a MAJOR problem with Marijuana.
