Tips To Reduce Marijuana Use

Cutting back on marijuana use may be difficult, but there are things you can do to make it easier/more manageable. Below are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Regular or heavy smokers can reduce the number of times per day they smoke and then the number of days per week. If you would like to stop, continue the pattern above until you have ceased your use.
  • Set reachable goals…then accomplish those goals…set more goals…Accomplish those goals…repeat
  • Use marijuana recreationally like you may use other drugs such as alcohol
  • Switch to a different method of use: if you dab try a one-hitter; if you smoke a bowl try edibles, etc.
  • Put yourself on a budget: only allow so many $ to go towards your marijuana purchasing per month
  • Seek support or assistance if you feel you need help in reducing or stopping your use
