I am 38 years old divorced with two small children, I have recently started dating a 35 year old man who tells me that he smokes pot daily. I am concerned and the idea of this bothers me. I say to him you are addicted it you are using a drug (however mild) daily and he said that yes he is addicted. I have been doing a lot of reading and research into marijuana addiction (online) and I am absolutely floored by the amount of material available. I am really concerned now whether I am wasting my time with this guy or what! I really like him a lot and he likes me but I want to give him some of this information to read and tell him he has to make a decision between me and the pot. He knows I will not be able to live with it ultimately however, I think he is hoping I will be so in love with him I will just kind of over look it and somehow come to accept it as 'normal' . I don't want this kind of influence around my children. I have never even seen this guy smoke pot. He is very private about that and that seems kind of weird to me too. I would really appreciate any advice from anyone who is or has experienced this sort of thing.
