Can We Be Addicted?

Hey guys, before I start off on this little rant, you should all know that I am very honest with my entire family. They all know that I love weed and smoke it all the time. For the most part, my fam is pretty open minded… but sometimes, I run into a little bump in the road. :)

I was having a conversation about pot with my aunt the other day. She said that she didn’t think that it was really bad for me per say, but she was worried that I would get addicted. I know that I always joke about being addicted to weed, but that is not the case. I explained to her that I was no more addicted to pot than she was to ice cream. 😛 Basically, I love it, use it a lot, but if I don’t have it for awhile that is OK too. Will I miss it, sure… Would you miss something that you liked doing? In order to convince her not to worry about me, I did a little research.

While I was searching the internet for answers I found that some people would get addicted to pot… these are the same people that get addicted to video games, tattoos, exercise and pretty much anything you can think of. Some people are just obsessive and will have trouble with any type of change. When it comes to physical addiction, there is ZERO proof that pot is in any way habit forming. In fact, I saw a few studies where they were using pot to help people ween off of other addictions. So, I guess smoking weed is like the opposite of getting addicted. 😛 Long story short, I helped my aunt feel a little better and I now know for sure that pot is not addictive at all.

Before I go, I wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t mention that you definitely need to use pot responsibly. Just because it’s not addictive or dangerous, doesn’t mean you should drive around when you are high or get high all day long. Like anything else in life, if you over due it, you will have problems, so use your head! :)

Thanks for stopping by,
Alisa
