Cannabis and Studying
Have I got a cannabis dependency?
If consumed regularly, cannabis can lead to a psychological dependency. Students who are affected usually experience a loss of motivation, an inability to concentrate and a drop in performance which sometimes causes them to abandon their course.
Below are some questions which may indicate whether you are at risk of becoming dependent.
- Do you find it hard to imagine getting through life without cannabis?
- Do you become anxious inside when you are running out of drugs or when you have none?
- Are you nervous, irritable, tense or, perhaps, anxious and depressed because you have stopped consuming?
- Do you fail to reduce or give it up, even though you planned to do so?
If you answer Yes to one or more questions, you would seem to be at risk. If you want to examine your situation in more detail, you can use our counselling service.
