Quit Weed using Meditation

Marijuana is the most used illicit drug in the world, having over 200 slang terms ascribed to it; pot, grass, Mary-Jane, and, of course, weed. Weed works in the brain, affecting and changing the chemistry to cause a range of different effects in the user; from mellow, giggling relaxation to taut, hungry paranoia. The active ingredient in weed is THC, which is short for delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, and it is increasing in strength year on year since the 70s making the drug ever more addictive, potent and potentially dangerous to the user.

What are the withdrawal symptoms?

Weed is only mildly addictive, as compared to nicotine, but it is still an addiction, and one which can rapidly run out of control, leading to poor life-decisions being made in order to get more of the drug. If you do find yourself under the thumb of the substance, meditation and self-hypnosis can help to get your body back under control and calm the irrational fears that the drug can cause. The withdrawal symptoms are not life-threatening, as those from alcohol can be, but they are severe enough for up to 70% of users to light up a joint to avoid their onset or continuance.

The severity of withdrawal symptoms is generally dependant on how long-lasting and how heavy the habit has been; generally worsening with more prolonged or heavy usage. These symptoms can include, first and foremost, a craving for the drug – including restlessness, aggression and mood swings. Headaches are a relatively common symptom, and these often cannot be cured by over the counter medications and simply have to be tolerated. Lack of concentration and poor sleep patterns can be an issue; and everyone knows how awful it is to have one or two restless nights: two or three weeks of them can be horrendous! Appetite can change, leading to weight loss or gain according to how it takes the sufferer and digestion problems can ensue, as can an altered libido; leading to a decrease in sexual drive. Cramps, dizzy spells and the shakes are all symptoms of weed withdrawal that are frequently seen.

As appalling as the above symptoms sound there is a reassurance in knowing that they are limited to two to three weeks, after which time you are ‘over the hump’ and will begin to actively enjoy a life free from marijuana.

How to use meditation

If you can, begin to practise meditation before you stop or as you reduce your intake of weed, and hopefully this will enable you to remain in control of the situation as you work through withdrawal. Indeed, meditation will help you make you mind up to stop smoking weed as you’ll wish to capitalize on the new found mental clarity.

Meditation consists of setting time aside each day, maybe two or three times a day, and focusing on your breathing as you rid your psyche of all the distractions and negative energies that may have accumulated, until you reach a state of near-empty peace and tranquillity. Not only will this process give you the strength to continue to give up and break the hold that the narcotic has over you, but you might well find that meditation actually supplies the sensation of peace and ‘one-ness’ which led you into using the drug in the first place. This new-found inner unity can safely replace the toxic bonds of weed; leaving you with the best of both worlds.

Continue to meditate as you work through withdrawal, and then continue, including new healthy and beneficial steps in your meditation until you are genuinely purifying your mind and body and living a new forward-looking life.
