Today, I would like to share my personal story of how I successfully quit smoking marijuana. I did not rely on any special techniques or seek medical help; I simply made the decision that it was time to quit.

How I Started Smoking Marijuana

My marijuana use began during rehearsals with my amateur rock band. We would gather on weekends to compose music and smoke marijuana for creative inspiration. Eventually, I started smoking in other places and on weekdays, leading to daily use for the past two years.

I would purchase marijuana in large packages to ensure I never ran out, and I smoked it using a pipette, usually once in the morning before work and once after lunch. I felt constantly high and became so accustomed to it that I worried about how I would manage without it, especially during vacations or when facing the risk of customs detection.

The Turning Point

Over time, I stopped feeling the buzz and considered increasing the dose or trying stronger drugs. However, a realization struck me: it was time to quit. To achieve this, I took three crucial steps.

First, I stopped attending our musical rehearsals, as I knew deep down that I went there not to play music but to get high. Second, I threw away all my remaining marijuana and the pipette, ensuring I couldn't change my mind and retrieve them later. Lastly, I deleted my marijuana dealer's contact information from my phone.

Filling the Void

After quitting marijuana, I felt a sense of emptiness and longed to fill the void left by the absence of the drug's lightness and carefree feeling. I turned to breathing exercises, which surprisingly provided a similar effect to smoking marijuana. By inhaling deeply, holding my breath, and slowly releasing it through my lips, I mimicked the sensation of smoking and experienced a natural high without drugs.

The Result

In the end, I managed to quit smoking marijuana by changing my environment, limiting my access to the drug, and practicing breathing exercises to cope with cravings. The most crucial factor, however, was making a firm decision to quit. If you truly want to break free from this habit, you have the power to do so.
