About Me

Quit Weed nowHi, thanks for visiting my blog.

My name is Andy Kaufmann and I am a Pothead. On my blog I would like to help serious people to stop smoking weed and get on with their lives.

I am a 34 year young Dutchman and I have been smoking since I was fourteen. That’s almost twenty years, more than half my life. Don’t get me wrong, it’s been a great twenty years with plenty of adventure and fun. But one thing was always present: Weed or the hunger for it.

Although I have been off the green for some time now, I still am a pothead and I feel I will remain to be so for the rest of my life. Don’t get this as a discouragement, it is only a truth about avid dope smokers. The craving might leave, but the sympathy remains…

“I am going to stop smoking soon!” is a phrase most smokers will know all too well.”Just set your mind to it”. Ring any bells?

Did it work? I don’t think so. It’s also the wrong way to think. It will only soothe your conscience until the next joint.

Quitting weed is tough and I am convinced that without help, be it professional help or not, it will not happen.

Trust me, I know all the excuses. I have worked in a Coffeeshop in Holland for years. Selling little bags of grass and hashies to costumers. Talking the talk, making them coffee and tea. Some regulars were real problematic smokers. And although I smoked and talked with them, I never considered my own weed consummation a bad thing. Funny right? I was the pot blaming the kettle.

Slowly the idea that I had a problem raised. It really hit me on the day my son was born. While my wife was in labour one thought was continually on my mind. “When this is over I can smoke a joint at home and celebrate the birth in peace”. So lame.

I had to quit. If not for me, than for my family. But it took me two more years to finally let go of weed. More on that in my blog posts.

I know how hard it is and marijuana being a relatively ‘harmless’ drug makes it even harder. Let me put it this way: It  never ruined my life, but it definitely stood in the way of my personal development.

So if this all sounds familiar and if you are serious about quitting weed, visit my blog regularly and take my advice, tips and encouragement as you deem fit for your situation.
