I have been dating a guy for over six months. I love and care about him very much. A month into the relationship, he told me he smokes pot. I was glad he told me, but didn't realize how much it would bother me. I have never tried marijuana. I am a school teacher (not the grandmotherly type), I was never interested in smoking. I have ignored his smoking. He's told me that he'd quit if he got married, he wouldn't want it around his kids. The more I see, the more I wonder if he could quit. I do not want to tell him how to live his life or give him an untimatium, but I don't think I can live my life worried about what'll happen if someone finds pot in "our" house, in my car, etc. I could loose my job, in essence, my life. How hard is it to quit? I know he's smoked for the last six years at least. What should I do?
