People have several reasons for wanting to quit marijuana use and whatever the reason be, you need to have a plan to avoid relapse.               

  1. Know the reason why you want to quit, list them, keep them with you and let that keep been your drive             
  2. Know the facts about marijuana               
  3. Make a quit plan               
    • Set your quit date            
    • Tell your friends and family about your quit date and have an accountability partner            
    • Get rid of all your marijuana stash               
    • Avoid areas (where you used to buy or places where it is used) and relationships that will provoke use.     
    • Track your progress and celebrate your victories (each day you do not smoke)               
    • Have a support system               
    • Find a way to distract yourself other than getting high, avoid idleness. Go for a walk, eat a carrot, spend time with family and friends.               
    • Seek professional help               
  4. Overcome the withdrawal effects               
    • Exercising can help with the mood swings, depression and overall well-being           
    • Drink lots of water             
    • Eat health food: rich in fiber, leafy vegetables               
    • Have a sleep routine to help with the insomnia: like avoiding distractions, putting off lights, drinking a glass of warm milk               
    • Take hot baths           
  5. Be patient on yourself: it takes time. Even when you relapse, just dust off and get back up.

Hope that helped!
