Are you ready to learn how to get over a weed addiction? You're about to learn how you can go about things so you can conquer your addiction to weed and stay off the pot for the rest of your life.

You just need to want to achieve this within yourself and not because your girlfriend or someone else is breathing down your neck to quit smoking the stuff.

Once you can be honest with yourself and admit that you really do want to put the pipe away...

Here's what to do...

Get Yourself Ready: Preparation Is Critical

This is setting a day that you are going to have your last smoke. If you want to make that tomorrow, go for it, but depending on how much you have been smoking pot in the past you may want to make that a few weeks from now.

Here's why...

Your body is going to be used to the effects of smoking weed. You've probably spent years of your life being able to relax on demand with the help of smoking the herb. You ain't going to have that luxury when you quit smoking weed.

You need to be mentally and physically prepared for that.

What's Gonna Happen?

You will face sleepless nights for a couple of days. That's a given. But, hey, what's a couple of days out your life when the rest of it is going to be weed addiction free.

Getting yourself prepared for such a dramatic lifestyle change can be daunting. That's why when you reach that day when you promise yourself you are going to leave the pot alone, you should have a plan of attack to fight back when temptation comes kicking you in the gut.

Here's how to deal with the weed addiction aftermath...

For this, hobbies work great. Pick something you like. You don't have to be good at it, as long it relaxes you. Drawing, painting and carpentry can be great time hoggers and mind occupiers. If you plan to spend your time playing computer games you might find yourself getting easily frustrated when you lose lives and weapons, so try and keep things as stress free as you can for the first few days of quitting.

Another thing you will probably notice when you stop smoking weed is your appetite may drain away for a few days. Even though you may not feel like eating, go ahead and eat something. Your body is going to need fuel and you won't do your health much good by starving. You don't need marijuana to develop an appetite. A few days in and you'll be happier for it.

There are a variety of other ways to get over a weed addiction which are explained in great detail over at www.weedaddiction.net .
