Marijuana Addiction Recovery

Marijuana addiction is another major problem that only seems to be getting worse, especially in the United States.

Many pot users feel that marijuana is less harmful than other drugs, that it’s not really huring them, or even that it benefits them in some way. This is simply not true. Marijuana introduces numerous harmful chemicals into our bodies, and it can be highly addictive.

Additionally, newer strains of marijuana produce even more potent pot than was ever previously produced (say that 10 times fast). This makes today’s marijuana much, much more addictive than marijuana from say, 5 years ago. Because of the higher concentrations of THC in this newer marijuana, users receive a better high, which then requires a higher dose to repeat or exceed. This leads to an endless cycle of seeking a better high; a cycle that can only end in severe addiction.

Thanks to the media’s increased attention on legalizing marijuana, most people have forgetten just how harmful this substance can be. Even though most users claim that when they are using marijuana they feel ‘happy, creative, funny, or relaxed,’ these feelings and tendencies only last while the drug is in your system. What happens when you come down off of that high? Do you really want to resign yourself to only feeling good when you can get your hands on some weed?

Think about how you feel when you AREN’T high. Do you become irritable? Depressed? Lonely? Sad? Suicidal? Do you really want that to become the norm in your life??

If you are currently struggling with an addiction to marijuana, you should seek help immediately. Many rehab centers exist around the country and this is by far the best way to seek treatment. Additionally, there are many places where you can find useful resources to help you beat your marijuana addiction. Look online for different sites offering either online courses or programs, books, videos, or just some friendly advice.

I hope this post has helped to shed some light on why marijuana is such an issue today!

Staying Healthy in an Unhealthy World

Remaining healthy in this day and age is no easy task.

We are contantly bombarded by advertisements from major companies like McDonald’s, Burger

unhealthy food
Unhealthy food has become the norm, and it’s going to kill us.

King, Wendy’s, Taco Bell and many many more. They are constantly trying to make us think that their food isn’t all that bad for us.Well it is. It’s killing us, and there is research that backs up that statement.

No matter how many times a fast food restaurant overhauls its menu, the food will never be truly good for anyone. It will always be chocked full of fats, sugars and artificial substances that are not good for humans to consume. Why can’t they seem to just provide good food? Because they’re focused on profits, not the well-being of their customers.

Sure, when it comes down to people they know, or even themselves, they certainly do care about health. But because their customers are so far removed from their own lives, they fail to realize the havoc that their products are wreaking throughout the world.

Fast food companies will not stop making unhealthy food primarily because unhealthy food is easier to make. Unhealthy food is easier to make. And unfortunately, we are all conditioned to enjoy unhealthy food. We’ve grown up around it. Unhealthy food has been with us from the start, and we as humans tend to dislike changing things that have been a certain way for a long time.

So what can we do to change?

Put simply, the only thing we can do is stop supporting the companies that are contributing to the problem. We need to change our behaviour, we need to choose our food more wisely, we need to be more active, we need to take action to combat this growing problem.
