Is Daily Marijuana Usage Too Much? Am I Addicted to Marijuana?
Is it possible to become addicted to marijuana? How much is too much? How can I tell if I should cut back on my pot usage—or even quit?
We get lots of questions about marijuana here at Archstone Recovery Center. We’re here to help you with caring answers and advice. What we can tell you is that marijuana is not itself physically addictive—that is, it doesn’t alter brain chemistry in order to require it. So people don’t experience the physical and physiological dependence on pot that they do on other drugs. However, this seeming good news comes with a warning: it’s still possible to be psychologically addicted to pot.
Psychological addiction is a form of dependence where the user feels they need the drug in order to feel normal, or to function at all. What is so insidious about this type of addiction is that it sneaks up on you. It’s often hard to tell when exactly someone is psychologically addicted. However, if you’re using marijuana every day, chances are you have some form of psychological addiction.
