Marijuana Addiction Withdrawal

Even though some consider marijuana addiction withdrawal symptoms to be less severe than the symptoms of other drugs, the emotional and mental issues that come with marijuana withdrawal can last for more than 45 days.  It is these marijuana withdrawal symptoms that make can make it very difficult to overcome marijuana addiction.
Marijuana addiction withdrawal symptoms include:
  • Restlessness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Weight loss
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Headaches
  • Irritability
  • Anger
  • Physical tension
  • Cravings for more marijuana
These behavioral and emotional marijuana withdrawal symptoms can be felt by the habitual user within the first 8 hours after last use, and they are most prominent during the first 10 days of abstinence. While in the stages of marijuana withdrawal, the marijuana addict finds it very difficult to function normally in life from feelings of general malaise and apathy.
The symptoms of marijuana withdrawal, although uncomfortable, are generally not medically serious and pharmacological treatment for easing of symptoms is very rarely practiced, however, a marijuana detox and treatment program is recommended to provide a support system, emotional attention, and help reduce the risk of relapse. 
Exercise can be effective way to reduce the severity of marijuana withdrawal symptoms, as well as a way to keep busy and reduce marijuana cravings. Exercise can help fatigue the body making sleep easier, stimulate appetite, and release endorphins that help with feelings of irritability and lethargy. Sauna treatments can also be a beneficial way to rid the body of the drug metabolites within the body, which can speed up the marijuana withdrawal process.
Marijuana addiction is real and marijuana withdrawal is a medically recognized syndrome of marijuana use. It can be tough to overcome the cravings and resist the use of the drug that you know will make all of the uncomfortable symptoms of marijuana withdrawal disappear; but it is worth it, these symptoms will ease in a few days, and the clarity of marijuana sobriety can be great.
