Why isnt pot considered a physical addiction?
I have been smoking for a very long time. I would never compare the physical aspects of addiction to pot with others such as meth or heroine etc. I used meth heavily for years so i know too well the pain of withdrawl. However i have another addiction i would like to put an end to but I am having a hard time b/c of mental/physical symptoms. The first thing is trying to stop myself from thinking I need to "relax". The other issues are intense stomach pain, diarrhea, anxiety, nausea, insomnia, depression. Now these are not terrible like coming off other things but wouldnt that be considered a physical addiction in the sense my body physically has adapted to being stoned all the time and is now experiencing physical symtoms from a long time steady level of THC that has dropped? Also I have had to use more and more to achieve the desired result so in the end wouldnt it technically be physicaly addicting? I guess maybe it can be to some and not to others? I guess I am feeling like I am crazy for feeling these things when supposedly it is not physically addictive.
