The counselor discusses the relationships among thoughts, feelings, and using marijuana:
Counselor (C): For people who have smoked marijuana for a long time, thoughts about using are normal; almost anyone who stops using thinks about starting up again. Thinking about using is not a problem provided you don't act on those thoughts. You may feel guilty about thoughts, and you may try to get them out of your mind. This skill topic will help you learn new ways to manage your thoughts before you slip. Sometimes the thoughts are obvious, but sometimes they creep up on you without notice.
