However, Paul recently opened up about his drug use in a recent episode of the ‘IMPAULSIVE’ podcast. He apparently made the decision to cut marijuana cold turkey from Christmas Eve of 2021. Paul’s reasoning was that he realised that he was “high more than I wasn’t high.”
However, it wasn’t long before Paul started to experience heavy withdrawal symptoms from the recreational drug. He describes them as “aggressive” with symptoms including being irritable, not sleeping, developing a gag reflex, and zero appetite. “I was really going through it,” he explained on the podcast.

I don’t care who the f*ck says it’s not a drug – it’s a f*cking drug.” It’s refreshing to see a high profile celebrity like Logan Paul open up about his use of drugs and reflect critically on their choices.
