Keep Busy while You Quit Weed
A common problem when you quit weed is that you have a lot more time on their hands. A lot of heavy smokers spend at least some of their day on relaxing after smoking. When you quit smoking pot, you will need to find something to do to replace the time that you spent being stoned.
When you are quitting, you may also decide that you don't want to do some of the activities that always lead to smoking. For example, if you always went out and had a beer, the smoked after work, you will want to find something to do during that time so that you don't go back to smoking marijuana to fill that time.
Believe it or not, one of the reasons people go back to smoking marijuana, is that they don't find anything better to do when they decided to quit!

This may seem trivial, but by writing a list of reasons, you brain is far more committed to following what you have written in order to achieve your goal. The simple act of writing, can change how you think about yourself and your marijuana adddiction and cause you to follow through with your written goal.
You may wish to write a list of reasons for quitting, a reward that you will receive after 1 month of not smoking, or just a journal about how you feel right now. If you are not interested in writing, you can tell a close friend or spouse about your decision.
Because most people don't like to talk about their weed addiction, writing is the best way to keep yourself mentally on track.
