In brief: You bet

Anxiety - even panic - can be prompted with use.
Of course motivation can suffer as well. Because of it's slow release as a result of being deposited in fat, many who do no abstain for as long as two weeks may not understand it's chronic impact. Some studies suggest impact on: sleep quality, memory, paranoia, executive function driving, comprehension, executive functioning, onset of psychosis.
