Set a date in the future when you intend to quit. Note your quit date and work towards giving up. Throw out your cannabis paraphernalia, ash trays, lighters and the all tempting weed.

Create a support network that will provide comfort during the difficult initial stages, find a local group or visit a specialist clinic that provides addicts with group sessions to help discuss any problems. The important thing is having someone who is non-judgemental and supportive of your efforts, who will provide sound practical advice and be sympathetic to your plight.
