Get help: There are many chemical dependency programs, and they will deal with marijuana problems just as they do with alcohol or any other drug. People who get into trouble with drugs often have underlying psychiatric and emotional issues, and those need to be recognized and treated. Finding alternative coping skills is critical in recovery. Self-help programs can assist you in this. First, decide to quit.
