@ConfusedAnonBee: I will start this off by saying i smoke pot almost everyday after work.
Now that being said, it is like alcohol. Some people can handle it and some people can’t. You do the drug, don’t let the drug do you. You say money stresses you out? Yeah if you are stressed out and in debt, you gotta stop smoking or cut waaay the heck down. It shouldn’t be a priority in your life, let alone your relationship.
Now concerning your relationship… honestly, have you guys ever been together when you weren’t pot heads? Sometimes having someone to smoke with blinds you to the fact that thats all your relationship is – someone to smoke with. I was in a bad relationship once and man was i blind. He could be horribily emotionally abusive and we fight and i would cry and then he would apologize and we would smoke and it all starts again. I am really glad my SO now doesnt smoke, and doesnt mind that i do. Our relationship doesnt circle around it – at all and neither does my life.
Now, if you guys really want to work on it. You need to understand that his bi polar disorder is going to make withdrawl more intense on him in the way of mood swings. The rest of us get a little moody and maybe have some trouble sleeping (or thats atleast how i am when i go more than a week or so) but for him, he cant control his emotions and feels more “stressed”. You guys need help. Theres many non-profit organizations or groups dedicated to helping people become sober while providing free counseling. Maybe that is something to look into in your area.
I wish you guys luck.
