My pattern was a few times a week and then more and the next thing its all day.
I have many friends with the same problem, they just dont think or know its a problem.
Or do the mood swings and behavior have to do with something else entirely perhaps? Hi everyone, He just doesn't think his addiction is affecting our relationship...
Or do the mood swings and behavior have to do with something else entirely perhaps? Thanks 2 Old 2 B Buzzed, I appreciate your response and your positive outlook - however, this article was written from the perspective of a married couple... Hello Eb I have been smoking over 30 years on and off and back on this site after a year still strugling with my useage.
I believe that your BF is not ready to quit smoking yet and if he is not ready then you can't do much so either you have to accept it or move on with your life by breaking up with him so really choice is yours.
However, I will tell you my journey of smoking because I think that it might give you an inside perception of a smoker and would help you to decide better or if you want to convince him then maybe it would help you.
Trust me when i say it gets worse before it gets better.
When we first started dating, he admitted to smoking weed, but I didn't have any idea how much of a problem it was for him.Is this a lost cause or would you suggest I try and hang on to this to see if I can help him?Also, does anyone else have this issue in a relationship with an addict?and the pot addict himself was admitting to the problem and understands how it affects his wife and relationship... Thanks 2 Old 2 B Buzzed, My situation is slightly different in which there is a difficulty in me getting my boyfriend to admit there is an actual problem and therefore refuses to do anything about it... i have another shot at quitting(for good) alot of my relationship with my family hangs on the edge and I have the ability to change it.My situation is slightly different in which there is a difficulty in me getting my boyfriend to admit there is an actual problem and therefore refuses to do anything about it... the thing about it is your bf needs to want to quit, I mean really quit.I have a loving wife after 18 years and shes giving me another shot.I dont beleive there will be many more chances for me to quit.I first started smoking because I believed that people who smoked look cool while smoking.For first 4 years, I used to smoke 2 or 3 cigrettes in a week because I lived with my parents and i tried to hide this fact.At this point, and after much discussion, he agreed to cut down to 2 times a week or only when he is "with his friends".Either way, in the last month and a half, I've been noticing some big changes in his behaviour and health - the worst of it is the mood swings and anger.
