Snoop Dogg fans think ‘withdrawal symptoms hitting’ after quitting weed in latest post
| Last updated
Fans of Snoop Dogg fear he is in the throes of withdrawal symptoms after 'giving up smoke' yesterday (16 November).
He had his own personal blunt roller and has been very open about his love for weed. So, it's no surprise he might have come crashing down.
But if his latest Instagram post is anything to go by, it seems that the Death Row Records owner isn't pulling our leg.
He shared a snap of himself looking forlorn while snuggled up on the couch on Friday evening.
Snoop looked pretty glum as he gazed off into the distance like he was pretending he was in a sad movie scene. Hey - we've all done it.
He simply captioned the snap with the 'dashing away' emoji - which looks more like someone blowing out smoke.
There are a lot of benefits from giving up the drug for ‘chronic users’, but the human body goes through a lot in the aftermath.
Midwest Recovery Centers warn that those who ‘have used marijuana regularly for some time’ are likely to experience withdrawal symptoms.
These can include: “Anger, anxiety, mood swings, aggression, irritability, restlessness, shakiness, sleep problems, decreased appetite, nausea, stomach pain, and more.”
The recovery centre’s site says the withdrawal symptoms begin within the first one to three days after quitting, usually causing edginess and irritability.
However, the lungs ‘begin to heal’.
It’s said that after a full two weeks afterwards, the majority of withdrawal symptoms subside, but sleep issues can last longer.
As reported by many who have gone through the process, this can include rather ‘vivid dreams’.
Fans were concerned for the rapper in the comment section of his post, but encouraged him to keep fighting through it.
One said: "My uncle going through WITHDRAWALS!!!!!!! He is NOT OKAY."
Another wrote: "Sh*t I hope he good. Health is wealth unc."
A third joked: "Y'all forgetting 24 hours is like a month in Dogg years."
A fourth commented: "Those last lil buds talking to you from the other room. Stay focused unc."
A fifth added: "This is the result of when the weed started smoking you instead of you smoking it. Withdrawal symptoms about to be wild but you got this."
Others encouraged him to take it 'step by step' and recommended some things that could help take his mind off weed.
Stay strong, Snoop!
