is cannabis addictive?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
i guess the title says it all really. i only smoke the stuff occaisionally and my friend who smokes it regularly swears that its not and its only the tobacco you roll it with that makes it this way, but i think thats just an excuse coz i nag him not to do it too often.

i'm not denying that women are stupid; God made them to match the men.

    NO,i can safely assure u that weed isnt addictive, but u really wanna watch out about using ciggies to fuel em with, that's where the real problem comes from. If u smoke hash try putting it on top of some weed rather than tobacco.

    There are other disadvantages, like short-term memory loss, but only if u take it in excess, otherwise carry on puffing <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Yea, I think that its pretty addictive too. Well just one look at my brother and I no its true! He is a right grumpy git if he dont have a smoke in the morning as soon as he wakes up. He is not himself at all, infact I wouldnt no him as my brother if he wernt stoned most of the time <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    well, fine, be that way, confronted with these facts it seems that i have no option but to admit defeat. weed aint physically addictive but people can end up relying on it.

    Now i shall retire in order to weep into my pillow

    Right well this should help you out a bit.

    You dont get physically addicted to it, your body does not have withdrawls.

    You can get mentally addicted to it and you can get very grumpy and depressed with out it.

    My dad has been stoned for over ten years now, he says the feeling of not being stoned is unimaginable to him.

    Thats only cos he smokes it permanantley though and his mind is so used to it.

    The prob is u grow more resistant to it, which can bump up the price, that's what happened to my mate but now he grows it himself so no problem there

    Yeah, it's true. Weed isn't physically addictive, but certainly can be psychologically addictive. I should point out that cocaine is the same- no tolerance or withdrawl, but is considered to be one of the most psychologically addictive drugs around.

    Anyone here who'd tried it knows the routine. You buy a gram of coke, plan to use some tonight and save some for later. No matter what, you end up doing it until it's gone.

    I guess my point is that we shouldn't make a drug that isn't physically addictive sound safe. Mind you, pot is obviously not in the same ballpark as coke.

    Just some food for thought.

    Yeah psycologically addictive, a m8 of mine who's been smoking for like 6 years I guess... everyday n like at least a 10 bag skunk a day, he fell out with his parents who buy him weed a while back n was totally screwed in the head.. went totally pshyco cos he was to used to being chilled out..

    I would say its definatly just psychologically addictive, and a good way of describing this would be that when you are not stoned you will simply want to be stoned to enjoy a walk or a night out, but this will only last at the most 2 weeks after stopping completely, then your tolerance might build back up again after even longer so in a years time you'll be ready for another good 5 month session <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    Remember this site although they do give some information on drugs it is hardly detailed and with that it is not as accurate as it could be, although a good site that has many articles and writings is http://www.erowid.org from here you can learn about any drug and then make your own opinions on them. there is another called Lyceam or something like that
