: Question: My boyfriend has been smoking marijuana for approximatly 22 years. He smokes at least 3 times maybe 4 a week. He has a good job, and it hasn't affected his motivation, I mean he doesn't sit around the house all day smoking weed. Anyways, I am at the end of my rope with this thing. I am not a smoker and I don't understand what he gets from it. We fight all the time about this. I think he is a addict. He denies it, and says he could quit anytime. He even tried to quit to prove his point to me, but always ends up going back to the stuff. I am at the point of walking out, but feel guilty because I know I am not a perfect person myself. He calls it his one "little vice". Am I overreacting to this? Would he be classified as an addict? Bye for now
Dear Vancouver girl,
Yes, your boyfriend is an addict. A functioning addict is still and addict. PLEASE scroll further down the board, and read my original posting of "Marijuana - anyone else addicted?". My hubby and I have been smokers for over 20 years, and the battle to quit is excruciating. We've done well for a month now, but we do not feel "normal" being straight. Please, please, scroll down and read the stories of us addicts. I think it will offer you some insight. Good luck, and keep me posted, please.
