Why waste time and money on smoking OR quit smoking products? Cold Turkey is the way to go, cheap, effective and shows the courage of your conviction. Want to stop? Then STOP!!

You can try hypnosis, but no one can "make" you do something you don't want to do.

The first thing you need to do is make a list of things that you like to do besides smoking weed.

Let's hope it's a long list

If you want to "cowardly" live long and avoid the Grim Reaper as long as possible, DON'T stop smoking the "Viper Weed" and keep being arrogant and an unrepetant omnivore forever too.

From a purely 'puritanical'(as opposed to a more secular, mainstream) perspective, marijuana really IS the "Devil's" weed, even if it does not actually make you physically go out and do lotsa naughty things (that you WILL J/O to secretly, though!).

Furthermore, before both of my parents died they lost their "mean" arrogant attitudes and strangely avoided animal protein too. Apparently when one takes this path one will likely be "called by God" very soon.

Give up smoking tobacco or excessive drinking instead if you're concerned about true physical health. DON'T be 'PC' nice - be the opposite. For instance, if some heinous murderer is put to death by lethal injection, RATHER than say some pussy-a**ed pacifist bull**** like: "Oh, capital punishment is SO terrible ... lisp, lisp, lisp!", instead loudly and proudly come out with: "Lethal injection was too GOOD for him ... he should have been tied to a tree and exterminated with nothing more than an ORDINARY CLAW HAMMER TO THE SKULL!".

After THAT go out and have yourself a bloody-rare Outback steak while telling God: "I'm devouring one of your creatures Lord ... HA-HA!". I GUARANTEE that if you do all of the above He won't take you until you're triple-digit aged !!!

You can stop smoking pot by not smoking pot. You need to smoke pot because...you are weak minded, weak willed, ignorant or Darwin simply classified you as a loser?

Oh yeah, "right". A drug that keeps you from taking a dump is the "best" thing for your digestive system. At least when you get COLON CANCER later in life you can go back to weed to cope with the CHEMO!

The government doesn't want us smoking pot PRIMARILY because long-term use ENLIGHTENS one. A long time user is more likely to have an actual or metaphoric bumpersticker that says "Question Authority" than a non-toker, or perhaps actually vote for a third party candidate rather than a 'Republicrat', at least in Presidential elections.

The Illuminati would RATHER have you shoot smack than toke - they LOVE (true) "doped-up" morons to manipulate!

With professional help and drugs, the only way is cold turkey. There is no tapering off. It can be difficult, but can be done. It all comes down to how bad you want to and how determined you are. It took me a couple of years once I initially decided that quitting was in my best interest, but that was about six years ago.
