Marijuana is highly addictive! I'm fed with this!!!

Discussion in 'Marijuana' started by Momof2needshelp, Jul 5, 2016.

  1. I have a 6 month old baby boy and a 7 year old. My husband and I have been married for 1 year now. I never knew he smoked until the day we moved in. He smokes every single day. If he stops he getsaid irrate and becomesee a jerk!. He only loves me when he's high. I'm so tired of his abuse. He says that's he's not addicted to it but yet agrees that when he is off the Marijuana he doesn't feel good and feels mad. This picture is me. He hit me right before he got high as soon as he got high he was trying to be nice. How can this crap be legal in some states I don't get it!!!

    @Momof2needshelp... I'm sorry you're going through what you're going through. Marijuana can certainly be addictive for some people. It sounds like your husband may be one of them. Have you ever asked him to consider going to treatment? If he's not willing to get help, do you feel like you want to stay in the situation you're in? I always get scared when there is physical abuse of any kind going on. Just know that you should take every precaution to make sure that you and your kids are safe.

    We're here to help and support you however we can. I'm keeping good thoughts for you and sending you hugs.
  3. We've talked about getting help but we never end up going. On top of that he also addictect to porn. He makes me feel useless. I don't want to be in this situation anymore. But everytime I pack my stuff and leave with my kids he starts calling me and begging me to come back that he's going to change of course that never happens. I'm the stupid one that keeps coming back to him. It's taken a toll in me physically and mostly mentally.

    @Momof2needshelp... That calling you and begging you to come back, telling you that he's going to change, is all part of an addict's manipulation. Of course all of this is taking a toll on you. Addiction is a family disease. It affects everyone who loves the person suffering with it. And sometimes detaching is the best thing you can do. It doesn't mean that you stop caring or loving or being supportive. It just means that you learn how to do those things without driving yourself crazy. Have you ever read Melody Beattie's book Codependent No More? If not, I highly recommend it. It's an amazing resource for loved ones.
  5. I've never heard of that book, but will go look for it today actually I'll let you know when I get it. :)

    Hi, I personalty believe that the exceed cause big damage, your husband should be smoking all days, or drinking, or taking any medicine everyday.

    Do something about it, stop besmirching a substance when the truth is the person is the toxin, not the other way around.

    It's the person smoking it. Not the weed.

    Peace to all of you,

    Marijuana is most deffinently addicting to some people, including myself, but it is from an addictive personality. If you have the personality, you'd be damn surprised what you can become addicted to.
