HALT when Eating and Using Cannabis

Before you eat, ask yourself:  Am I hungry, angry, lonely or tired?  If hungry yes, eat a little to stop the hunger.  Hunger is defined by something physical – growling tummy, etc.  If you’re angry, talk about it.  If lonely, call someone.  If tired, take a nap.  The same applies to drinking or cannabis.  Do you want to get high?  For fun?  Ok, maybe then.  But if you are angry, lonely or tired don’t use. Using food or substances is unhealthy if used to satisfy or avoid emotional needs such as anger, loneliness or fatigue.
