Can Occasional Intake Of Marijuana Lead To Addiction?
Q: Hi doctor, I am 29 years old male. I was addicted to marijuana. I also drank alcohol occasionally. Few months ago, I became psychologically disturbed. I started to think that most of the people surrounding me are my enemy. I was fearing my friends. I was thinking that I have got a divine power. In this situation, my family sent me to a rehabilitation center. After two months, I felt better but my SGPT became high-112. Now it is in normal range. I don’t want to take drugs regularly again. But if I occasionally smoke marijuana or drink alcohol, what problem might happen to me? Will I be mentally disturbed again or my liver will get damaged? Please reply. Thank you.
As you already understand, both marijuana and alcohol have addictive properties.
It is advisable to abstain from them completely. Don’t take them even once again. Leave them completely.
There is no doubt that if you take them even once again, these substances are capable of taking you to the rehabilitation center again. Also, your liver will get damaged.
Instead, consider indulging in positive activities. Involve yourself in positive stuffs to the extent that you don’t feel like going back to your dark life with marijuana.
