If someone has been smoking pot for 40 yrs. and every time they try to quit, every day gets worse. They get more depressed and can barely go 3 months until they have to start smoking again. The depression gets too bad after quitting pot.
My question is – how long do you think it would take before they feel normal again, or will that not be possible because of how long they have been smoking pot? Will their body ever be able to function normally without pot?
Yes, it can. Quitting pot and going back to living life without substances will take several months. Especially considering the 40 years of using.
Since you are asking the question I have to assume that smoking pot is causing some problems for the user. There is a lot I don’t know from your short note.
Quitting pot and then working on recovery will require some support. We have many resources listed on our page “Resource Links for Families of Addicts and Alcoholics.”
