The results of this self test can provide you with useful information, but it is only a self test and not a professional diagnostic assessment. You should never a substitute a self-evaluation test for the advice of a trained professional, who can understand and evaluate you particular situation.
Once you've evaluated yourself with this test and you think that you can uses further help, you may want to look into Narcotics Anonymous (NA) or MA. These meetings can be very helpful, and you'll also develop a support system.
You can also seek out the advice of a mental health counselor trained in addictive disorders, and there are rehab rehabs that specialize in the problem
Counseling When clients come to me with a cannabis addiction, we talk about their situation and then I give them a written assessment. This way I can actually measure how addicted they are to the drug and find out the best method to work with them.
With pot addiction, it's often better to start by not eliminating the drug 'cold turkey'. I use a harm reduction approach, cutting down, giving the client more coping strategies, until the person finally tells they want to stop. (Yes it's true, they actually say that)
Gradually you realize that with less drugs in your system you have more energy and motivation to do other things. Through counseling you begin to do the thinks that you've been procrastinating. You develop a more positive outlook on life, and more money in your pocket.
Getting off pot is a win/win situation.
You make a choice - turn off life or live it. And once this happens, you don't want to go back.
