Book description

It’s a fact that marijuana can be addictive and harmful to your health. Australians are among the highest users of cannabis in the world with an astounding 21 per cent of Australians aged between 20 and 29 taking the drug. Studies have shown that regular cannabis use clouds the brain, can affect motor skills, has an impact on lung function, dampens motivation, disrupts personal and work life, and can cause anxiety, depression and increase the risk of psychosis. Quit Cannabis provides an authoritative guide to the mental and physical health risks of using cannabis as well as practical, step-by-step information on building motivation, coping with withdrawal symptoms and quitting marijuana for good.

The longer you have used marijuana, the harder it can be to quit. Users often experience anxiety, sleeplessness and strong cravings when trying to come off it. This ground-breaking guide is based on the experience of hundreds of users. It cuts through the folklore surrounding marijuana to reveal the truth about its impact on health and how to quit for good.

Quit Cannabispresents real-life case studies of former users who have regained control of their lives. It also shows how to help a relative or friend come off the drug.

At a time when marijuana is on the public policy agenda in Australia and elsewhere, it’s important to remember there are many people trying to get free of their addiction.

“A compassionate and practical road map to help navigate and avoid the pitfalls and consequences of marijuana use. Highly recommended.”

Bob Hopkins, founder of the Nimbin HEMP Embassy
