Love And Other Drugs: What It’s Like To Be The Girlfriend Of A Stoner

New merch: February 18, If you feel compelled to post on Ask MetaFilter about this, it is an issue. Yes it is. You aren’t comfortable with it. A medical professional has not prescribed the marijuana for self-treatment. You seem to be allowing him any reason that you can think of to continue his addiction. However, you aren’t allowing yourself any reason whatsoever to dislike the fact that your partner has a distasteful addiction and doesn’t listen to your objections to said addiction.

If you did get to the bottom of this and he didn’t change anything about his behavior, would it make you feel any better? This is your problem here – you don’t think it’s possible for him to change. If that is actually the case, then there’s nothing for you to do and you either need to accept his behavior which I don’t think is good for you or reject him entirely.

If you think it’s possible for him to change, then you need to start getting him to do so. It is possible for people to change. However, in general, people without any motivation to change don’t do so. Well in terms of a barometer I’d say you pretty much answerd your own question several times. Red flags. Bothers you. Conflicted feelings. Its a problem. That’s frankly the easy part.

My advice in the hard part is going to pretty much firmly be in the “honest conversations followed by a decisive action” category. Something along the lines of “is this a deal breaker? State that. Be ready emotionally for him to choose weed over you. Here’s the thing. It doesn’t natter if it’s weed. If he’s addicted to star wars legos or putting up extreme Christmas lights it’s still an addiction and a very serious detriment to healthy interaction. So discount the weed and focus on the larger behavioral issues you have with it.

Not confrontational, just honest. And again, be prepared for the potential of him choosing the weed. I purposefully stepped over the depression because your not facing his depression. Your facing his behavioral issues and addictive actions regarding his self medication Good luck! I don’t know why your boyfriend smokes pot. I was a big pothead in high school and college and I started simply because it was fun. It felt super good and it made me happy. But I kept doing it because it made me complacent.

I never got angry or frustrated and I never cared about anything too much to let it get me bent out of shape. Except weed. I got really angry when I couldn’t smoke weed. I think some people do specifically do it because it takes the stress of caring away. It makes things easy. Maybe your boyfriend feels stressed out. I also had some depression at some point in my potheadedness I don’t remember where , and smoking pot was an activity that felt good and passed the time.

As a depressed person, I couldn’t pour myself into hobbies, but I could indulge in physical pleasures like pot. Since he’s smoking when he wakes up, to me that seems more of an approach to manage stress. I’d add, some people do just enjoy smoking pot, but the everyday part and the waking-and-baking makes it seem like a crutch. Whatever it is, I don’t think it’s something you can change and if you try, will probably just result in fights and be unpleasant for you.

You should decide whether you’re OK with him dealing with stress or passing his time this way or not. And if you’re not, find a new guy. Well, it’s a problem for you, clearly, which means it’s something that’s a problem in your relationship, and therefore something worth figuring out with him. What is it that bothers you about his consumption level? What is it that you want out of a discussion of his use? I personally do not find regular marijuana use in and of itself to be a problem — I don’t consume it myself, but have several people in my life who consume it on a daily or near-daily basis, and it does not create problems for them, or me.

Daily mj use without problems is entirely possible, and does not necessarily constitute an addiction. If I was intoxicated, and my partner did not want to always communicate with me when I was intoxicated, I would listen to her wishes. So, here’s the thing about self-medicating: If it’s working, why is it a problem? The problem with self-medicating iwith drugs and alcohol usually comes down to whether they are having a destructive impact and whether they’re addictive.

The same problems exist with some prescription drugs. I am currently not taking drugs for my anxiety problem, but I am doing half an hour of fairly strenuous cardio every day, because that has been helping and has fewer negative side effects. Is that self-medicating? Is it wrong? Well, people aren’t apt to say that because the social view of exercise is positive. I think you need to look at what the negative things you’re seeing here might be.

Is he unable to do things he needs to do? Does he seem to feel worse for doing this? Does he seem to be at risk for criminal prosecution? Those are certainly reasons not to. But “the improvement could be gotten from a prescription drug instead, possibly, maybe” is If he seems to feel okay and you can’t point to specific areas where this is harming, I would suggest that yes, this has to do more with your pre-judgment of the issue than his drug use.

And I say this as somebody who has never personally touched marijuana. I know that some people smoke weed in the evening to unwind like others drink wine or beer but getting up early to smoke it seems like it’s crossing over into something else. That suggests to me that A He feels like he needs it to function in his regular life, not just to unwind, and B He’s trying to hide how much he’s using by doing it before you wake up.

I don’t know what you should do next but I wanted to give you an outside perspective that supports your instinct that he may have a problem. He has told you why he smokes but for some reason you don’t believe him? That would be where I would focus your attention. I smoke cannabis every day. I use it for chronic pain, stress, focus, creativity and for plain old enjoyment. If I had told my SO that and then they expressed concern if I smoked up one morning, I too would be surprised and a little hurt.

When I smoke in the morning its because I hurt and smoking it makes me able to go about my day in much less pain and be more productive. Just because this is an issue for you doesn’t mean it is or should be an issue for him. If I didn’t smoke cannabis every day I’d have to be taking more than one other medication and the side effect profiles of all the pain killers and mental health meds that would be appropriate are much scarier than any side effects that come from smoking weed.

I’m guessing you’ve got a diagnosis, though smartypantz. If the SO here hasn’t, yet he still needs daily pain relief, that would seem to be an issue that needs addressing first. The idea that he’s smoking for relief is otherwise somewhat worrying, because it seems to rule out the two main reassuring possibilties, namely that this is either a normal for the subculture he identifies with, or b just recreational and voluntary.

Have you ever seen him run out, with no easy way to get more? Does he say, well, better forget about the bong for a few days, and carry on, or does he devote himself to calling everyone he knows, trying to meet new dealers, etc? Just flat out no. Millions of people smoke pot every day recreationally, for no other reason than that they like it. There is research to show that anxiety disorders can cause headaches, though the headaches are most often migraines.

But whatever, it really doesn’t matter why he smokes pot if you don’t like it. You are allowed to decide it’s a dealbreaker. I think you are trying to second guess this and overthink it. Some people just really like being stoned, you know? If it is just a problem within your head, caused by wrong social conditioning, then no need to mess things up with the other person, right? So start thinking about that What is the real nature of your hangup?

It turns out his lover might actually be The Man, and has a mind to fuck up his business.

Of course! As long as they have a job and their life doesn’t revolve around cannabis it’s completely fine. Cannabis should be used to enhance certain aspects of. While a lot of annoying stereotypes point to stoners dating non-stoners For example, if daily cannabis use really helps one person in the relationship Chances are, if you are as chill as your pot-loving S.O., you’ll have a way better and they don’t want to be the guy/gal walking around in a tie-dye shirt.

Weed can affect your love life. Back to the point: And as weed is becoming decriminalized and de-stigmatized, we wanted to see how serious of a deal breaker it actually is.

Plus, she listened to the Grateful Dead un-ironically, which is fucking unforgivable.

M y partner of four years and I are both in our 30s. When we met, he admitted he liked to smoke marijuana, but he has recently started to smoke more in my view, though he denies this. I hate it on so many levels:

Weed has more to do with your love life than you think

I am at the end of a two-and-a-half year relationship that is ending because of the marijuana habits of my boyfriend. He does it. But it has simply never been a part of the relationship that the two of us have been cultivating; that is, the drug does not play a role in our day-to-day lives at all. This is a substance that has been integral in his life since he was a young teenager his older brother got him started and is something that he and his friends have done together for many years he is From a ethical or moral standpoint, he sees nothing wrong with the drug because to him it is just like coming home from work and drinking a beer — it relaxes you and is enjoyable.

Can I compromise with a marijuana smoker I love?

New merch: February 18, If you feel compelled to post on Ask MetaFilter about this, it is an issue. Yes it is. You aren’t comfortable with it. A medical professional has not prescribed the marijuana for self-treatment. You seem to be allowing him any reason that you can think of to continue his addiction.

If you did get to the bottom of this and he didn’t change anything about his behavior, would it make you feel any better?

The pros and cons of dating a pothead who likes weed as much as Willie Nelson seems to. During college, I dated a self-proclaimed “former pothead.

I will say, though, that compared to a lot of other recreational drugs out there — including alcohol — the negative side effects of weed pale significantly in comparison. So why, then, would I have a problem with my boyfriend smoking pot when I am cool with its recreational use? You can’t tell me weed isn’t addictive when I have seen it with my own eyes.

Millennials Reflect On the Worst Parts of Dating a Stoner

Могу биться об заклад.  – Он откусил кусок пирога и заговорил с набитым ртом.  – Максимальное время, которое ТРАНСТЕКСТ когда-либо тратил на один файл, составляет три часа. Это включая диагностику, проверку памяти и все прочее. Единственное, что могло бы вызвать зацикливание протяженностью в восемнадцать часов, – это вирус.

Больше нечему. – Вирус. – Да, какой-то повторяющийся цикл. Что-то попало в процессор, создав заколдованный круг, и практически парализовало систему. – Знаешь, – сказала она, – Стратмор сидит в шифровалке уже тридцать шесть часов.

How to Date a Stoner When You Don’t Smoke Weed

Тут ничего такого. Сьюзан с трудом воспринимала происходящее. – Что же тогда случилось? – спросил Фонтейн.  – Я думал, это вирус. Джабба глубоко вздохнул и понизил голос. – Вирусы, – сказал он, вытирая рукой пот со лба, – имеют привычку размножаться. Клонировать самих .

Тогда-то виновников компьютерных сбоев и стали называть вирусами. У меня нет на это времени, – сказала себе Сьюзан. На поиски вируса может уйти несколько дней. Придется проверить тысячи строк программы, чтобы обнаружить крохотную ошибку, – это все равно что найти единственную опечатку в толстенной энциклопедии. Сьюзан понимала, что ей ничего не остается, как запустить Следопыта повторно. На поиски вируса нужно время, которого нет ни у нее, ни у коммандера.

– Он взял ее руку и натянул что-то на палец. – Лжец, – засмеялась Сьюзан, открывая.  – Я же угада… – Но она замолкла на полуслове. На ее пальце было не кольцо Танкадо. Это было другое кольцо – платиновое, с крупным сверкающим бриллиантом.

Сьюзан посмотрела на часы. Она ждет уже целый час. Очевидно, Анонимная рассылка Америки не слишком торопится пересылать почту Северной Дакоты. Сьюзан тяжело вздохнула. Несмотря на все попытки забыть утренний разговор с Дэвидом, он никак не выходил у нее из головы. Она понимала, что говорила с ним слишком сурово, и молила Бога, чтобы в Испании у него все прошло хорошо.

Прошу прощения? – проговорил директор. – Халохот был профессионалом высокого уровня, сэр. Мы были свидетелями убийства, поскольку находились всего в пятидесяти метрах от места. Все данные говорят, что Танкадо ни о чем таком даже не подозревал. – Данные? – спросил Бринкерхофф.
