Smoking the odd joint may seem pretty harmless, but like the sirens of the seas who softly called sailors to early graves, weed cleverly draws you into dangerous waters. It’s never too late to tackle your addiction, or too early to quit before it really gets a grip and starts to dictate everything you do. So if you need a little motivation here are three good reasons why you need to stop smoking weed, and a brief look at just a few of the many benefits that decision will bring.

Reason 1: It’s bad for your health

There are worst habits of course, but that argument doesn’t really justify smoking something which seriously increases the risk of heart, brain and breathing problems, along with certain cancers. While it’s true that weed can help some people deal with pain, according to Helpful Outcome, illness and chronic conditions that type has very low levels of THC – the bit that makes you ‘high’, so it doesn’t have the same damaging effects. Recent research also makes a strong link between weed and serious mental illnesses. It’s a scary road to walk down.

Benefits of quitting: improved health, less chance of dying early, and a halt to the permanent damage smoking weed does to your memory, ability to learn and to properly experience appropriate emotions.

Reason 2: It makes you stupid

You already read that smoking weed affects your memory and learning abilities – and that damage is unchangeable. Imagine then what young people are doing to their brains, and in turn to their future. And don’t forget that if you smoke the chances that your kids will is higher than it would be otherwise, after all you can hardly complain, right?


Benefits of quitting: halting the damage to your brain function so you don’t miss out on anything else in life, and the chance to be a good role model for your children.

Reason 3: It’s holding you back

Apart from the fact that if you started smoking young you probably did poorly at school so are not able to find a decent paying job, regular weed smokers are statistically more likely to be unemployed, or to lose their job because they are not able to do it properly, well or safely, or they took too much time off. Weed stops you caring; it kills ambition and realistic dreams and goals. Relationships are more difficult to keep up, and personal care can take second place to zoning out.


Benefits of quitting: better work prospects, looking and smelling good, the chance to realise your true potential, and enjoy nurturing personal relationships.


Quitting weed isn’t always easy, but it’s a whole lot easier in the long run than dealing with the fallout it causes, and there are plenty of good things to look forward to as a result.
