Recently iv'e been smoking weed every night to go to sleep. Well last night i tried to sleep without smoking and all i could think of was smoking while trying to sleep and it wasn't working. Now i know how weed isn't addicting but i used to be prescribed ambien and was diagnosed with Insomnia when i was 17 and going into 12th grade. I took those for a couple months and noticed i was taking more and more to sleep and quit taking them cold turkey. I have smoked weed since about 7'th grade. but never really used it to fall asleep more as a social drug, until recently i started smoking at home and that led to me using it to help me sleep. So my question is, Am i addicted? Taking ambien was far worse than weed but i cant imagine being dependant on it is good.
