Why Any Addiction Is a Dangerous One

The addiction has more of a psychological clutch than a physical one. But, when you add all of the emotional, psychological, and physical components together it equals an addiction.
Hash is the resonated remains of what is left from marijuana. So, like marijuana hashish contains THC which is stored in the fat cells of the body for a long time. This means that not only is hash habit forming it is also dangerous.
The short term effects of smoking hashish include lack of muscle coordination, nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, concentration problems, short term memory loss, impaired driving, impaired judgment, rime and space distortion, fearfulness, anxiety, depression, hallucinations, paranoia and panic.
The long term effects are even worse from smoking hashish. There is an increased risk of various cancers, respiratory problems, menstrual cycle problems, lower sperm count, psychosis, lack of drive, lack of motivation, and a motivational syndrome.
Because of the nature of hashish addictions it is common to use behavioral therapy techniques to tackle the addiction. Treating this type of addiction warrants breaking the habit psychologically and replacing it with a new and healthy habit. This means living a life to be proud of and one that consists of more than a daily chase to get a buzz.
Just because a hash addiction does not require a formal detox does not make it any less harmful. The intense desire to smoke it is profound and sometimes the mind will reap havoc on a person until they get what the mind has convinced them that they want. This is part of the stranglehold of addiction. You can tell yourself over and over that you are done but in the end the mind wins.
Any type of addiction can make sobriety seem impossible. Sobriety is never impossible and never out of your reach. If you have tried to quit and failed then pick yourself back up and try again. Change is possible, it is real, and it is available with treatment and support. It is very possible that a hashish addiction can be treated with just counseling and some outpatient treatment. Treatment is always confidential so there are no worries there.
The hardest step is the first one and no one is saying this will be easy but making a commitment to sobriety is the first step in reclaiming your life and putting you back in control of your own destiny and embracing a life with no drugs.
