How do I get my boyfriend to stop smoking weed?
When I started dating my boyfriend I didn't know he smoked weed. He tried to get me to smoke with him but it's just not for me. I've asked him to stop smoking but that only made him go behind my back. He's kind of got better but everytime his sister wants to smoke he does. I don't know how to get him to stop and I know the only way he will stop is to want to stop himself.
For most, if they don't get involved with other drugs before they quit causing more serious addictions etc, just "grow out" of smoking weed.
I found this to be the case with myself, as a young teenager, I would smoke daily, the older I became, the less interesting it was. By the time I hit 19 it was boring, and even irritating to be "high" so I gave it up, and never looked back.
You can't really change anyone or Force their behavior. I personally believe No one will quit doing anything that they do "smoking, cursing, etc" unless they Personally Want to quit. Standard rehab shows this from the fact that 80% or more usually relapse within 1 month of release.
I also quit smoking because I got tired of that as well, and didn't want to die of cancer. No drugs, no therapy, cold turkey.
Only thing you can do, is try to set limits like the one above mentioned (which he will probably either break or it will make him avoid being with you to get high), you can try to just cope with it, or you can try to find things he enjoys doing MORE than smoking weed, be it driving, skateboarding etc. Most weed smokers are usually bored, and become lethargic etc after smoking. Find outdoor physical activities you both enjoy, and try to do more of them together.
Last note, if he gets on "harder" drugs, hit the road. Most harder drugs lead to stealing and radical personality changes that you will do well to avoid,, trust me on that one.
