    Marijuana Addiction?

    Is it possible to develop an addiction to smoking marijuana? If so, I believe my husband has such an addiction. We keep our money separate, and his bank account is dwindling very quickly. He goes to "his guy" every week and restocks. I don't know how much he is buying, but he seems to go through it quick. What can I do? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Re: Marijuana Addiction?

    Hello Mariabbb -
    Marijuana just like any other drug including the legal ones such as alcohol and especially prescription drugs are dangerous to those with addictive personalities. I speak as one with experience and although i cant speak for your husbands habits, I can speak for what was once mine. I lied, cheated and manipulated people and situations to get what i needed and at the time i knew it was wrong and it ate me up inside to hurt the people involved but the desire to get what i needed superseded the issues at hand. I have seen many function rationally for a lifetime on marijuana and I know it has its medical benefits but there is a huge difference between medically necessary weed and casually or dependently using. I am not trying to take up for your husband or defend him in any way but if this is the case and he is doing what you say he is, then i would try to discuss this with him and and let him know you dont approve but are willing to help him get the help he needs. Let him know that you are there for him and want to see your family once again together and sober. If he is anything like i was, he already knows this but needs to know that he isnt going to go through this alone. It is always best to try this route first and pray that he see the error of his ways and makes the attempt to walk this out with you. Its not always successful but know that this is you trying to make it work. He has to want this for himself first, but if he does he will have a willing partner in you and his recovery can begin. Good luck and for me it would not have been possible without knowing Jesus was on my side. I dont know where you stand with your faith, but Jesus is always willing to help if you ask. Take care!
