Snoop Dogg's surprising choice to "quit smoking," given his association with marijuana, prompts questions about the substance he's forsaking. Despite a history of heavy smoking, he seeks privacy amid this notable lifestyle shift.
Timeline Of What Happens To Your Body After Quitting Weed As Snoop Gives It Up
“Snoop without smoke is like peanut without the jelly.” That means that now it looks like nutty, fruitless sandwiches.
Yes, Snoop Dogg has said that he wants to "quit smoking."
And it's understandably surprised the rapper's followers, who consider him to be practically synonymous with marijuana.
The 52-year-old has been charged with smoking "between 75 and 150 joints" every day in the past.
However, the rapper "Young, Wild & Free" has now begged that people "respect my privacy," saying, "I've decided to give up smoking after much consideration & conversation with my family."
It's unclear exactly what "smoke" the celebrity is giving up, but if it's marijuana and it's true, that's a huge shock.
It will undoubtedly not be a simple task to go through if Snoop has indeed been smoking so many joints throughout the years.
For "chronic users," quitting the drug has many advantages, but the body suffers greatly in the aftermath.
Midwest Recovery Centers cautions that withdrawal symptoms are common for people who "have used marijuana regularly for some time."
These can include: “Anger, anxiety, mood swings, aggression, irritability, restlessness, shakiness, sleep problems, decreased appetite, nausea, stomach pain, and more.”
According to the website of the recovery center, edginess and irritability are typically the first one to three days after quitting when withdrawal symptoms start.
But the lungs "begin to heal."
Depression is "a common symptom," and "physical discomfort and mood swings begin to peak" over those first two days and up to a week.
The "normal function" of brain receptors also starts to resume during this period.
The bulk of withdrawal symptoms is claimed to go away two weeks later, however, sleep problems may persist longer.
Numerous individuals who have experienced the process have noted that this can involve "vivid dreams."
Additionally, the treatment center states that "memory, mental acuity, and attention span improve" and that "normal" brain receptors return four weeks to months after stopping.
However, withdrawal symptoms including insomnia may not go away for up to a year.
Warm baths, time spent in nature, drinking plenty of water, and resting are all examples of this.
Additionally, it advises "be kind to yourself" and "engage in light exercise."
