I think my husband has a problem, but need a knowledgeable opinion. He is 52 years old. When he was 16-22 he was a heavy alcohol and drug user (LSD, pot, etc.). His parents and his older brother were all alcoholics. He hadn't used any substances or consumed much alcohol over the first 15 years or so we were together (we've been married 20), but his alcohol use began to increase about 5 years ago. He only drinks out of the house, so I don't know how much he's really drinking, but he is definitely drinking 3-4 times/week, often alone during his commute (rail) home. He claims he's only drinking 1-2 drinks each time, but his behavior is definitely different when he's been drinking. Over the last 10 years he has also become severely computer/phone/internet addicted (no, not in the way that 'everybody is'). He is glued to his phone or computer 24/7. If he's driving, the second he parks he picks up his phone and starts compulsively checking the news or facebook. He brings his phone to the bathroom. He sleeps with it. If he's waiting for me in the car with my son, he is on the phone. He walks from the kitchen to the bedroom (up stairs) while looking at his phone. And so on. Now, last week, I found out he somehow obtained a medical marijuana I.D. card. We are in NY, and he does NOT have any of the medical conditions for which medical marijuana can be legally prescribed in NY, so he must have lied in order to get it. He already has two different prescriptions for medical marijuana. Six weeks ago he had told me he was just using CBD oil, and has "no desire to get high." Apparently, that wasn't true. I know if I ask him about the MedMarijuana he'll find some way to justify it and minimize the significance of him using it. I need to educate myself about the effects of MM--can he really get high from it? I'm so afraid he's going to be driving with me/my son in the car while high, and we won't know it until it's too late (I can't drive due to medical issues). It's the secrecy that has me most concerned. He thinks that I'm the one with the problem, because I don't like him drinking and because I "don't like his phone," so I'm sure he'll think that "I'm the one with the problem" when I ask him about the I.D. card. Am I blowing things out of proportion, or does he have a problem? Is he really just a social drinker and using the MM to help himself sleep? The electronics addiction I know is not my problem. But the alcohol/MM--am I overreacting? Thanks so much for reading!
