Dating a chronic pot smoker
He does not smoke cigarettes or do any other drug but needs his daily joint.
I, on the other hand, do not drink, smoke or do anything and never have.
When he moved in, I told him that he had to keep it to one designated room.
I am not thrilled with this but I guess I am too tired to argue about something he isn’t planning on quitting.
We have fun together and it isn’t like he sits on the couch all day and does nothing. I think I am doing the right thing by taking the “accept it” approach but I do feel unsure sometimes. Sincerely, Abby Dear Abby, Thank God he’s not leaving you because you won’t smoke pot! I guess I just think the answer to the question, “Should I accept and stay with a man who fits this description?
It is what it does to your body and mind and overall health.
He did manage to completely quit marijuana on his own last year (his descision) and kept it up for six months straight. He doesn’t like that he does it but he just finds it so hard to stop. They would say, “if you don’t like that he smokes it, leave him” or “if he won’t quit for you, then he is not worth having.” It is not as simple as that.
He is a good man who is kind and cares about people, does many things for others and treats me wonderfully.
Not to mention the addiction (although they may say pot is not addictive physically, only mentally, it is as addictive as can be that’s why people can’t quit). I decided that I would simply have to accept him the way he is. I certainly never made good on my threats to leave because I love him and wanted to be with him.
I used to try to get him to quit which got me nowhere. I realized I either had to accept it but not approve of it or leave.
