Woody Harrelson Quit Smoking Marijuana, Reveals the Reason Why

Woody Harrelson has revealed that he has quit marijuana and hasn’t smoked pot in about a year.

In a recent interview with Vulture, the 55-year-old actor was asked how people perceive him. “They think I’m a party animal, which … I am a party animal. I mean, that might be one thing. But I am a party animal. But on the other hand, I haven’t … I’m now extremely moderate and … I actually stopped smoking pot almost a year ago.”

Then, the interviewer admitted they too were trying to quit because it makes them less productive. “Yeah, that was a little bit of my issue. Just 30 solid years of just partying too f*cking hard,” Woody responded.

“Well, like, last night, someone had — not just good herb but sativa; really good sativa. There’s a joint, and beautifully rolled. I like a beautifully rolled … and I just was like, I mean, I’ve gone this long. It would be weird to just be like, ‘Okay, let me have a hit off that,’ and then suddenly go back to smoking too much, which is … I don’t have a problem at all with smoking. I think it’s great. I think it’s a great drug, in terms of … Even cops say that the side effect is euphoria. Or the … what do you call it?” Woody said about staying off the drug. “The effect of it is euphoria. But when you’re doing it all the time, it just becomes … Well, you know. I feel like it was keeping me from being emotionally available. I really don’t want this interview to turn into a whole thing about that.”

    I don’t blame Woody. You can smoke awhile, years even, and you can just get to a point where it’s plain ol’ repetition, even redundant, and you can also start to realize that all the “stoners” around, at least most of them, are addicted to other drugs, and are just using those around them to make sure they get their score whenever their cravings are too hard to handle. People seem more interested in getting fucked-up than they do communicating with other human beings. Hardcore stoners play it all off REALLY well, sometimes TOO well, and whine and pule about how awesome and helpful cannabis is to humans. But, really, is it?? I find a certain level of FREEDOM and INDEPENDENCE in kicking any and all habits to the fuckin curb. At some point, if you smoke enough, you realize in the end that you’re better off in Nature NOT having such habits and cravings for these vices. Sure, it can make ya feel good, but it’s short term. Don’t lie, you know deep down inside that it’s true. Addicts will always “stick up” for their vice, even rabidly defend it, but attachment is a killer.
