Marijuana Withdrawal Is Real

The NIDA Blog Team

On this blog, we often get comments from people claiming that marijuana isn’t addictive. A lot of people seem to think marijuana is different from other drugs. Unfortunately, it’s not the case: Just like with other drugs (including alcohol and nicotine), you can get addicted to marijuana—especially if you use it during your teen years.

Dependence vs. Addiction

Drug "dependence" means needing a drug to feel physically okay. If a person is dependent on a drug, having enough of a supply is always important to them. However, being dependent doesn’t necessarily mean they’re addicted. For example, many people can be dependent on a medication prescribed by their doctor without being addicted to it.

The difference is that people who are addicted start to think about the drug all the time and make it a larger priority than other things in their life. They often make bad decisions that work against their health and their overall well-being. In the case of a medication, they may start to abuse it (use it differently than how the doctor prescribed): taking more of it, or crushing it and injecting it. Or in the case of a drug like marijuana, they'll be unable to stop using it even though it's causing problems with school, a job, or relationships. People with an addiction are often unable to see—or admit—that this is happening.

That Bad Feeling …

… is called withdrawal. A person with drug dependence will experience withdrawal if they completely stop using the drug all at once. Withdrawal is what leads a lot of people who are addicted to a drug to relapse—meaning, they've tried to quit, but they start taking the drug again.

A new study in the Journal of Addiction Medicine shows that teens who use marijuana heavily can experience withdrawal when they stop using it. In a study of teens receiving drug abuse treatment at an outpatient clinic, nearly half of them (40 percent) experienced symptoms of withdrawal when they stopped using marijuana.

Not Just a Crummy Day

From portrayals in movies and on TV of people addicted to heroin, people have an image of drug withdrawal as sweating, shaking, and being curled up in bed with unbearable pain. Marijuana withdrawal is a lot more subtle, but every bit as real.

The main mental symptoms of marijuana withdrawal include:

  • Being irritable
  • Feeling anxious or worried
  • Feeling depressed
  • Being restless
  • Having trouble sleeping at night and feeling tired during the day
  • Having low appetite or losing weight

Some people having marijuana withdrawal might not realize it. Some of the symptoms just contribute to being in a lousy mood, and it’s often easy to blame that feeling on other people annoying you or just having a bad day. You can also have physical symptoms like:

  • Stomach pain
  • Sweatiness
  • Shakiness
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Headache

More Use = More Problems

The longer a person uses marijuana, the more likely they are to have withdrawal symptoms when they aren’t using it. In the Journal of Addiction Medicine study, teens who had marijuana withdrawal symptoms were more likely than other marijuana users to have problems like difficulties at school or at work or trouble with relationships or money. They were also more likely to have other signs of marijuana dependence and mood disorders like depression.

And teen users who suffer marijuana withdrawal are more likely to experience marijuana addiction than adults. One in six teens who try marijuana will get addicted to it, and that goes up to as many as one-half of teens who use it every day.

I can relate to this!!!!!! Currently going through this phase! Want it to be over with I feel my mind wandering off a lot and can't seem to get my point across. And definitely do not feel mentally present. So zombie like will be the right way to phrase it.
I started smoking pot when I was 16, my brother and his friends got me started. I had an alcoholic father and grandfather. So dependency ran in my family genes I guess. I smoked a lot in college and continued to smoke every day for 30 years. I always got the same symptoms every time I ran out. Mean, Irritable, anxious, etc. I destroyed my first marriage because of it I believe now. My wife was not much of a smoker but put up with me. I didn't stop, but moved on to another relationship and never told my girlfriend, hiding it for 20 months. At the beginning I didn't want it as much, but later the same things happened and I broke up that relationship too. It nearly killed me with heartbreak and I stopped. I was depressed for months, no relationship, no pot but I endured and eventually met a wonderful woman. We got along great at the beginning, but like a fool I started smoking again, and hiding it. I had the same withdraw symptoms again when I ran out. Fast forward, after 5 years she got sick of my mood swings and my relationship was nearly over. I finally quit for the last time, 30 days clean and I had the same serious withdraw symptoms, including lack of sleep bad. My mind never turned off and I had a talk with my wife about my history. I am done finally because I feel so much better. I working on getting my marriage and life back. I was very successful in my job and in athletics (runner, triathlete, bike racer) so somehow I balanced everything except my relationships. Now I am focusing on staying on the right track. Almost 45 years, with only a few years break, is a lot of pot. I did not smoke much, but I did it a lot alone, and often, that's a major red flag. Hiding it is also bad. I believe in the right setting, it can be used like having a drink, but I was a dependent addict. Those who smoke in the right setting for a party or once in a while, like an glass of wine or a beer out with friends, it's OK. For me It nearly ruined every relationship I ever had. I won't go back. I feel better than I have ever have now. I finally accepted I was addicted and that's the first step to recovery.

Thanks for sharing your honest experiences with marijuana. A lot of people are afraid to share their negative experiences because it is supposed to be “cool” to smoke marijuana. It takes courage to talk about it, but it can help others who are confused about marijuana. Research tells us that some people do have bad reactions, and some people do get addicted, which can make it very difficult to quit.

took me 3 month to start sleeping after i quick cold turky, tough but very doable
Hey! Im 15 and stoped using weed. And now i have pain thru the whole body and it feels like im about to die. Am i going to die or am i thinking too much

We thank you very much for sharing your story. Hang in there. For most people, these feeling pass. You might consider consulting a doctor for help getting you through this difficult time. Most doctors are happy to help you try to quit using drugs, because they know it is better for your health. It takes a lot of courage to go through this withdrawal---we applaud you!

I was a heavy daily smoker for 3 years. I quit last January because I was put in the hospital twice due to constant vommiting. Throughout that year I smoked every so often because my bf & friends would all do it around me. But at the beginning of this year I started back smoking daily & heavy & it started making me sick again so I am day two clean & it is hard. Last night was just miserable. I have no appetite so I haven't been able to eat since yesterday around lunch. Every time I try to eat I feel like I'm going to vomit. Surprising I did not have trouble sleeping but I'm sure it's coming since I have sleeping problems. I loved the way I felt when I wasn't using last year & I wish I would have never started again. But I know if I just push through this & it will be so worth it once all of this passes. I love to smoke but for me I became to dependent on it & if I don't have it I get in a bad mood & that is not the way I want to live life everyday. I am determined to not smoke again because i have no motivation to do anything.

We wish you well and congratulate you for your courage in trying to get healthier. Keep your eye on your goals. You might consider consulting a doctor for help getting you through this difficult time. If you are comfortable telling your story, it could help others understand that marijuana can be addictive.

The first time I had tired marijuana I was 16. By the time I was 17, I had started to use more and more. By the time I was 19, I would smoke everyday. I am now 26, and am quitting for good. Every other time I had quit, I told myself I just was taking a break, or "we'll see what happens." However this time I can finally admit to myself and my wife I have a problem, and I want to change and to begin to fight against my addiction to weed. I am on day 6 of no weed, and boy has it been a journey. The first 5 days were peer hell, and just today I am starting to feel better. I was able to go to work everyday and still keep up with the bare essentials of my life, however that is not to say the withdrawals were not real, and were not difficult for me. I experienced all the symptoms. The strongest though were insomnia, no appitiate, and anxiety. I had a long talk with my wife last night after having woke her up because I couldnt sleep. I decided to ask her, and then actually listen, how my marijuana use has affected her throughout our marriage. Hearing the stories from her perspective, of events that I had viewed as just fine because I was stoned through them, really broke me, and has become fuel I will use to make sure I never go back. I am not ignorent to what addiction to harder drugs looks like, as well as what withdrawal from them look like. I have a brother who died of herion overdose a number of years ago, and one still with us who is addicted to meth, heroin, you name it. While marijuana addiction and withdrawals once you quit looks different than that of harder drugs, it is not to say that it is not real. It is very real, and I am so encourged to read the comments of others on here, to know I am not alone and I am not making this up in my head. As far as my political beliefs concerning weed and the legality of it, I do think it is more harmful to keep marijuana a schedule 1 drug and ruin lives forver with jail and criminal history, than the use of it or the withdrawlas from it. Like with other addictions, I primarily think it is a public health issue.
Going on a week for me. I have experienced loss of appetite, insomnia, irritability and having cold chills. Started at 14 now I'm 34. So much wasted time and money. Was smoking a quad a week and now none. I have given it to god in hopes he will aid me along the way in this tough time.
It seems some people are affected more than others which is the case with most drugs even alcohol. I know people who smoke 2-3 cigarettes a day and they dont need more, i know people that can have a joint once a month and its enough. The people with addictive personalities are the ones that need to beware of smoking marajuana. I know somebody who has been smoking marajuana for 40 years daily. After one day of not smoking she goes mental. Me personally i have an addictive personality so when i quit smoking after 4-5 years regularly i didnt sleep for 5 days and lost alot of weight. Had halucinations and anxiety and depression. This is the worst that can happen so i decided that a person like me cannot smoke marajuana at all because i enjoy it too much and end up smoking daily and eventually find it impossible to quit without severe withdrawrals. So on conclusion you need to decide which category you fit into. The addictive personality or the ocassional personality.
So True, Reading this has definitely helped me realise how lucky i am, or perhaps I was where some of you have been in the past and thank god i'm making the decision to stop before I too start experiencing those horrible withdrawal symptoms. Good luck guys and remember! You never catch the magic dragon so stop chasing :)
Very Interesting. Keep it up. Never Give up, Never Give in, and Never go back! I Started at 16 and now 26 with 2 years off for my A-levels, then started again at uni and smoked on and off since uni up to now. Today is my 4th day sober, and though my intake increased over time, the most i smoked was around 3 joints a day. In the early days i only smoked weekends, after uni i smoked around an 8th a week, usually mixed with tobacco. Have tried to quit in the past and this is like my 6th time but it feels different.. because this time I don't want to ever go back! Never give in, never give up and never go back. I can tell from reading your posts that everyone is different. I have experienced little to no symptoms of withdrawal and feel quite lucky. No problems sleeping, no problems eating, i exercise regularly because i've always been skinny and wanna bulk up. Exercise has helped a lot and i feel so lucky. I do get cravings and always tell myself NO! Train yourself to recognize bad thoughts because we all have them. My memory isn't great and the high isn't what it used to be (you never catch that magic dragon - southpark reference lol) but its true. I Know this quit will be permanent because i commit to a smoke free life. Obviously saving me money but i never spent that much on weed anyway (though it was starting to add up to around 8th's a week). I have had health problems in the past and a lung operation (before i started smoking) so i know smoking hasn't helped and probably contributed to my Increased Inter-Cranial Pressure (has to have surgery to correct this, and now have to live with a permanent VP shunt in my head). Smoking didn't cause this increased cerebral spinal fluid production though it probably didnt help. Anyway, life goes on and thank God i havent experienced any withdrawal symptoms (or perhaps i'm just unaware of them) though the dreams are much more vivid now (didnt know that weed makes you not dream). Anyway that's my story. Day 4 clean and I am never chasing after that magic dragon again. It's pointless. By the way, guys, weed also affects sperm production and can lead to fertility issues. Remember: Never give in, Never give up and Never go back . Exercise, live long and prosper and leave Smaug the magic dragon alone with all his gold (weed) :/ Hope this helps. Good luck ya'll and thanks for listening
Day 10 of no herb here. I've been doing it since about 2012, and my dreams are out of control... But I kind of like it. I've quit on and off (only for a week or so) and I always tell people that when I give it up, it's like my dreamworld gets enhanced. I used to dream so much, but when I started herb the dreams stopped. I started because of an accident I had - I broke my jaw in four places in December of 2012. I've been dealing with constant pain since, and herb seemed to help me deal with it. The weird thing is though, I seem to actually have less pain now than I ever have. I'm not sure what the logic behind this is. When I first started, I had a three to four month burst of creativity where I wrote and wrote and wrote, but then that got dull and I started just playing games and smoking all day. Money isn't really a problem, so I could buy unlimited amounts if I wanted to. I've found since I quit though, my desire to write has come back and I'm coming up with new and creative ideas (after only 10 days). I still feel the temptation to go back, but I'm trying my best to fight it off. Good luck everyone.
smoked weed constantly for years plus drank a case of beer on top everyday finally ended up in detox. hit rock bottom weed is very real you go crazy when you stop. also liquor is even worse
It's all about how much you exercise... All our bodies are different... but not that much... In my experiences I've gone through stages of smoking where I would stop exercising. Side effects would be more apparent when I'm not working out as much.
I have been smoking weed for 3 years (started at 18). I recently last week decided to stop because I was smoking about 6-8 blunts a day everyday. About 5 days ago I began to have a real bad stomach ache. Thinking it was diarrhea I went to restroom and I defalcated 2 times in one day but the stomach pains are still going on as we speak. I really don't have much of an appetite. When will the Marijuana Withdrawal end or what can I do to ease or get rid of the pain?

You are very courageous. This could be one of the most important things you have ever done for your health and well-being. As for the withdrawal symptoms, some people feel better in a day or two; for others it takes a lot longer. It depends on how often you used, how much you used, and your personal biology. If you are uncomfortable, please do not use it as an excuse to start using again. You might consider consulting a medical professional who may be able to help with the withdrawal symptoms.

Im on my 3rd day of not smoking any weed and i am for sure feeling withdrawls. Its hard for me to go to work because i don't want to be around anybody, i have no appetite, and can't fall asleep hardly at all during the night. Not to mention the massive headaches that ive been getting and the major depression. Marijuana withdrawl is real and theres no denying that
I've stopped smoking cold turkey countless times and the withdrawal symptoms are non-existent. Sometimes I stopped smoking for no reason other than to prove to myself that I don't need it. Sure, I lose some of my appetite. But I still eat when I'm hungry. Marijuana is not a necessity. People don't need it to keep living. If you ask me, people are just weak. Especially those teenagers that "can't eat or sleep if they don't smoke". Pathetic.
Everybody is different just because you don’t suffer the symptoms it doesn’t mean that nobody else does it doesn’t make anybody weak it makes you shallow minded
The weed detox is nothing compared to opiates ,benzo's or alcohol. If you think your weed detox is difficult, go to a detox center for opiates. watch the people all laying there, sick and unable to move. weed is a time thief. It will steal years from you. Things you could have done or jobs that could have been. Why would anyone want to give control to a plant that will basically alter the perception center in your brain and take control of the central nervous system is beyond.
Quit 10 days ago after fairly steady use for, oh, about 20 years. Have quit for some stretches before and never really noticed any symptoms, but last night out of nowhere I got super chilly (even though thermostat said 78) and registered a fever of 101. Sweated and tossed and turned all night. Figured I was coming down with a "summer flu" or something, but then started researching THC withdrawal...yeah, pretty sure that's what I'm experiencing. I've always heard there's no such thing, but that's BS. Also explains why I've been in a such a pissy mood all week toward the wife and kids. Fever is gone today and I'm feeling pretty good. Going for a bike ride now!
Marijuana withdrawal is real but it's not even in the same galaxy as opiates.
I have been a marijuana addict for 18 years, from the time I was 14. During that time, I had 6 months straight use of cocaine, which I stopped by myself with no treatment, 6 months straight use of Heroin/Oxycontin, which I stopped by myself with no treatment, and 3 months straight of opium use, which I stopped by myself with no treatment but went through NASTY withdrawal. I have been free from it for 19 days now, when during my use the longest I would go without using was maybe 2 or three days MAXIMUM. Over the course of the last three months, I have had serious anxiety and depression problems. I felt, and was told by many, that I was hopeless. Deciding to stop using was both the best, and worst thing I could have done. I say that because while I was glad to be free of Marijuana, I DID go through serious withdrawal that I could only liken to what it was like getting off opium. I had bad night sweats, fits of anxiety and depression that were crippling, nausea, fevers, and of course, restlessness. Now, 19 days in, most of the symptoms have subsided, but I came to a startling realization: I do not know how to cope with emotions and/or feelings without having marijuana to use as a crutch to get me through. In light of this, my shrink told me to find some marijuana anonymous meetings. I looked at him and said "F** you I don't need that bullsh!t I just told you I've been clean." After consulting with my best friend (who is 10 years sober and a recovering heroin addict), I decided to try one of those meetings. I am eternally grateful to my shrink, and my best friend having done so. I learned what I already felt inside, that ANY drug use stunts emotional growth. So here I am 32, and still feeling and acting like I'm 14. I know I have a long way to go, but I have something I didn't have before: HOPE. If you, or someone you know, has an addiction problem, PLEASE go to a Narcotics Anonymous meeting, or a Marijuana Anonymous meeting, or even an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. All 3 of them provide the blueprint that is the most successful path to sobriety, and emotional growth. I am very grateful to have found these programs, and I know that in time, I will be exactly where I want to be. GO FIND A MEETING IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU MAY HAVE A PROBLEM, EVEN IF YOU FEEL YOU CAN'T STOP. There is a Marijuana Anonymous app out there that you can download, and use to find meetings, both online and in person. Download it, use the chatroom, ask questions. You will not be sorry. Yes, there is a withdrawal involved, but the glory of your finest day will certainly overshadow the pain of the withdrawals. I wish everyone here luck, but just know, the programs WORK IF YOU WORK THEM. Take care all
I’ve been smoking for 40 years now cut down and started vaping instead but the reality is I just got more stoned and found it harder to function of course felt better without the cigarettes but I’m in day 10 after I finally stopped kidding myself that it wasn’t really a problem it is 3.58 am I’ve just woken from a very unpleasant dream and I’m looking at a website about cannabis withdrawal symptoms! I’ve had all of the above and no doubt all that is to follow which I’m not going to read anymore, I’m 59 years old and enough is enough ,I have felt emboldened by what I have read so far and I’m going to stop so many thanks everybody, those who make sneering comments I feel sorry for because that was me 30 years ago, I been lucky in life but I’m sick of all the sneaking around and scoring every couple of months, I’m very well known in my local community and I’m pretty sure no one suspects I smoke cannabis, If busted I would probably lose everything I’ve worked for so I will see this though, so please if you are trying to stop stick with it because you are mostly lightweights compared to me and if I can do it you guys certainly can,all the best all
I'm just about to turn 40 and my present to myself is to give up the weed. Smoking since I was 15 started on resin as skunk was so expensive and hard to get in the UK now it has become more prevalent and is so f**king strong. As I have just wrote that I can actually taste it, 3 days clean I'm sweating like a fat kid in a sauna headaches but my I feel clearer happier and more alert. I have to do this for my son and partner I had started not going to family events just so I could stay home and get high. Good luck to everyone
All in all, the reviews seem to have something in common; good people trapped in bad habits. Marijuana in my experience, only 25years, can best be described being best friends with an armed robber; and guess what? You’re always quick to defend it until you look back into your life and realise how much you’ve lost to it(career, money, potentials, abilities, health, opportunities etc) and how immature you actually can be without it. I’ll call it a DEMON that masquerades as a friend
Been smoking for 10+ years, I've quit before and had some withdrawal symptoms. I'm currently on day 3 after stopping cold turkey after smoking a 1/2oz per 4-5 days by myself. I haven't slept since I quit and I've been super negative and always sweating lol but I guess it's just part of reaping what you sow.... I have noticed a huge help from going to the sauna and trying to sweat more, and lots of prayer for a positive mindset!
I'm only 18 years old, and i've been smoking marijuana every day for 6 years. There's not a day in between I didn't smoke. I'm talking anywhere from 1 to 4 blunts daily. Where I come from though, marijuana is just a part of daily life. Everybody I know smokes weed. And it's known as a good thing, something to relax you after a long day. Nothing wrong with it. I've always ever looked at it that way myself. Recently though, I've realized just how addicted i've become. I don't look foward to anything accept coming home to smoke a blunt at night. It's become one of my main priorities. I never go to sleep without smoking first. It's 10:26 pm right now, and I want a blunt more than anything right now. But this is my 2nd day clean in 6 years. I feel irritable AS HELL. angry and annoyed. I have a headache thats killing me. But these craving are killing me 10x more. Having to stay busy to distract myself from how I'm feeling. Didnt know weed had withdraws. All I've ever heard was that it isnt a drug. It definitly is a drug. I really hope I can stay clean. I'm starting college in January for Criminal Justice. There's a different path I want to approach that doesn't include smoking weed. But man is my anxiety off the wall. Wish me luck. Day 2 . I hope it gets easier from here......

It's wonderful that you're quitting! Good luck and stay strong! Ask your doctor or health care provider for assistance and support, if needed.

I just want to get my life back. I hope I have the great life I had before when I had not realized.

This is day one for me, which brought me to this article for support. I've smoke for about 12 years. Throughout the 12 years, I quit three times. Each time was extremely hard, but so worth it in the end. I don't know why I went back to it. This time I plan on stopping for good. The withdrawals were so real, but so worth it in the end. It's good to see others going threw the same thing. I saved a tremendous amount of money and I loved my cloudy free way of thinking. I want to concentrate on my daughter and my career. Marijuana is just not in my forefront anymore. I don't like feeling dependent on a substance. I look at my daughter and see how happy she is and I remember when I was a kid with no dependencies, I felt like I made better choices. I know it's going to be hard but the outcome is so worth it. Mind over matter and Marijuana is not a necessity. Good luck all!
I've smoked everyday and night since I was 17. I am now 23 trying to quit to better myself so i wanted to ask everyone for some advice or any hacks to help me with the withdrawals. It's only my second day being weed-free and I already have been having weird vivid dreams, restlessness along with fatigue during the day. Also my anxiety and depression has been messing me up. I've been drinking at night to help me sleep and with my nerves but I already have had problems with drinking in the past so I would hate it If I fell back into that.. anything helps, thank you all and congrats for overcoming any addiction with drugs/alcohol . It's harder than anyone thinks.
I have been a heavy user since 2002. I have never used another drug other than nicotine so I can only compare the two. I recently stopped using marijuana cold turkey it's been 14 days and have experienced irritability, night sweats, loss of focus, I'm very nervous. I wake up from horrible dreams and am restless the rest of the night. Last night was night 14 and was the first night with a full nights sleep. I believe all other symtoms have subsided as well. From day one of quitting I didn't crave it like I would a cigarette if I didn't have one. I can say I would catch myself thinking about it in my usual smoking spots but never a crave feeling.
Hi I am 14 I know very young but I have been smoking for over a year now. Last year I stopped for 6 months after failing a drug test givin by my parents but then somehow got back on it. It's become just a priority to me now. Like look at me it's 1am and I'm looking up weed withdraws because I am expierencing it at the moment. All I want to do is go and smoke right now . I've only stopped for two days when I was supposed to stop two weeks ago but just kept finding myself upon it. I hate that I have to rely on it but I didn't eat one thing today. I feel very depressed. I overthink every thing and feel lonely without it. It made me who I am and now without it I just dk what todo . I feel so stupid doing this Ima just go but weed withdraw is real hopefully this ends soooon.
Look at my October 4th posting under the name “very tired” ive posted an update under the name “feeling better” look out for it i was smoking for 40 years for crying out loud and I’ve been clean for 3 months now ,you are not stupid it’s bloody hard but it does get better believe me and at least you are here we are all in this together so please stick with it don’t let it beat you are so young you will be a better person without it believe me the withdrawals are mainly in you head they do get better I played a lot of chess to take my mind off it also video games definitely helped and drink lots of water please be strong it’s hard but the choices you make right now will affect your school life your home life your personal life and the rest of your life do it for yourself right now
Yes withdrawal symptoms from quitting marijuana. I use to smoke everyday, all day for the last two years and decided to quit. I have never felt so awful. I have no appetite, all I want to do is go to bed but I can't sleep so I just lay there. I get the shakes and feel sick to my stomach to the point I want to throw up. I have tried to quit before with all the same symptoms. Smoking marijuana is not all that it is cracked up to be.
My daughter began dabbing in our apartment. We can get evicted with very short notice. Somewhere along the line, I became sensitive to the smell of pot and get nauseous. My daughter’s room is next to mine. She is either dependent on or addicted to pot at this point as she would not jeopardize our home or intentionally do something that would cause another person to feel sick otherwise. After reading these posts, I recognize she has complained about many of the withdrawal symptoms described above. This might help me get her to quit because I don’t think she understands her weight loss/loss of appetite/inability to sleep/upset stomach/depression etc....are withdrawal symptoms suggesting an addiction to the drug. At this point, she is believing the propaganda that pot is harmless and that it is improving her physical/psychological well being.
I smoke so much im scared to stop i been doing it since a teenager everyday.i think i mite die if i stop smoking i need help
