If you find yourself using marijuana at every possible opportunity, this may be the biggest clue of all that your marijuana habit is at risk of overtaking your ability to function.
You’re not alone in this. Most people start out with rational reasons for using marijuana–perhaps your friend is hosting a party when someone starts passing around a blunt, and you want to fit in; perhaps you’ve never tried marijuana before, and you’re curious to discover what all the hype is about. Eventually, though, your initial justifications may fade, and you start to use marijuana “just because”.
Ultimately, your specific reasons for using marijuana don’t matter. If you’re using more and more as an attempt to escape from the external pressures of life, take pause. Is it because you are greater stress in your life, or is it because you’re developing a new problem? If you’re feeling the urge to use, and no longer able to articulate why, consider if your habit has bridged into this harmful territory.
