Rediscovering Life without Marijuana

Rediscovering Life without Marijuana

Marijuana is a combination of dried leaves, stems and seeds from the cannabis plant. It is usually rolled up in paper and smoked like a cigarette or through a pipe. Marijuana can also be ingested with food or made into a tea. The active chemical in marijuana is known as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which delivers the euphoric high. Along with experiencing a state of euphoria, marijuana users report a sense of relaxation and increased sexual arousal. Even when used recreationally, it is possible to develop a physical dependency on marijuana. Marijuana use can become a serious issue when getting high becomes a person’s top priority. If you are struggling with marijuana abuse, you know that quitting can be difficult. Addiction treatment can help you discover a more productive and rewarding life, free from marijuana.

Marijuana Rehabilitation Can Give You Your Life Back

Rehab is designed not only to break the hold of marijuana addiction, but to also teach you how to live a healthy life in the future. With the help of addiction counseling, you will learn to identify the reasons why you abuse marijuana. Whether it be a means of dealing with stress or painful memories, being able to understand what lead to your addiction is crucial. Only after this can you learn healthy alternatives to dealing with stresses or other catalysts for marijuana abuse. You may unknowingly be suffering from a psychological disorder such as depression or anxiety. Underlying mental disorders can contribute to marijuana addiction, leading a person to use marijuana as a means of self-medication. In rehab, any such underlying disorder can be properly diagnosed and treated.

Health Benefits of Living without Marijuana

As marijuana is most often smoked, there are health risks that can be eliminated if you choose to get help and live a life free from marijuana. Smoking marijuana can contribute to health complications such as cancer of the lungs, throat and mouth, as well as increased risk of heart attack. Marijuana is also believed to suppress the immune system, leaving a marijuana user more susceptible to bacterial and viral infections. Choosing to get help can eliminate many of these health risks.
