I’m under a lot of stress at the moment, should I wait to stop taking drugs?

Many believe that taking drugs relieves stress and so in such situations it makes it difficult to quit but the reality is that it is actually a stress creator.

You may believe that taking drugs relieves stress or helps you cope with anxiety. Anyone who believed this would have a desire to take drugs in such situations and that desire to take drugs would make it difficult to quit. But does taking drugs really relieve stress, or is there something else going on?

Well, if taking drugs relieved stress you could reasonably expect drug users to be able to cope with stress better than non-drug users and this just isn’t the case. In fact, research indicates that drug users are substantially more stressed and suffer far higher levels of anxiety than non-drug users.

Allen Carr’s Easyway helps you understand the trick that drugs play on the brain. This trick cons the user’s brain into seeing the drug as a stress reliever when in fact it is a stress creator. We can completely remove your desire to take drugs in a stressful situation, and with no desire to use, it doesn’t take willpower to stop.
