How do you do?

I've heard a lot about a book and I picked it up and have read enough to be able to recommend it to you. Smoking weed and smoking cigarettes or anything is the same to me just variable.

It isn't good for your lungs and many other aspects of your health to smoke anything.

I recommend that you see a family doctor for blood tests due to your somewhat excessive weight loss.

I hope you have a family doctor.

If you are really stressed out I recommend talking to one of the Physicians online here if you don't have a family doctor or talking about what is bothering you to your family doctor.

Speaking to your doctor will determine what level of stress you are experiencing and if treatment is needed.

Write down what is stressing you out and what is triggering your pot smoking.

Feel free to get back to me if you require further assistance.

I wish you well!

Psychiatrist Dr. Payman Hajiazim's  Response
Hi There, thanks for asking. It is very important to be assessed by a doctor. It may be a part of eating disorder or it may be related to depression. The fact that you have been losing weight despite using cannabis shows that your situation is very serious, because cannabis usually enhances the appetite. As you say this could be related to an stressful situation, but this shows that your coping mechanism is not strong enough to deal with your new situation or the situation is really stressful. It shows the significance of referring to a doctor. The doctor will also assess all the possible medical causes which may induce both stress and loss of appetite as well. I wish you the best health.
