    Harry L Haroutunian, MD responded:
    Congratulations on your decision to stop smoking marijuana. As you may know, this does get stored in the system for weeks after cessation of smoking.

    My best advice would be to get plenty of rest with lots of mild, outdoor activity. Good nutrition and perhaps some vitamin supplements including antioxidants to aid in the detoxification process are also important.

    Most importantly, make sure you are receiving the support of other sober people who are now enjoying early recovery. If you need assistance, a 12-Step meeting might be just what the doctor ordered.
