  • I think he is making it clear what is important to him right now. I am sorry sweetie but the only thing you CAN do, is leave or kick him out. That will be the only way he will see you are serious, and possibly quit.I m a recovering addict and alcoholic and for me I had to lose everything to save my own life. I tell you this with an open heart and in the spirit of sisterhood. Please make a big brave choice as a mom...protect your kids from this, and yourself. it IS the only hope. he doesnt care about his job, he cares about you and the kids..just not as much as the high.
    take care of you and the kids...he has to save himself. good luck hon. good luck.

  • No, you have valid concerns. Whether it is legal or not is not the end-all on the discussion of how it affects your lives. If it is affecting his ability to care for his children and jeopardizing his employment, its legality doesn't matter. Alcohol is legal, that doesn't mean that a drunk person can't be harmful or useless.

  • You're not just being stupid. He has responsibilities that he is neglecting by doing what he is doing. Unfortunately, you cant change him. People only change if they want to change. You just have to find a way to get through to him. Legal or not, he should not be high around the children. Find some way to remind him of whats actually important in life. As hard as that may be.

  • I think you ought to inform your husband that a) one does NOT actually get "high" while smoking what is essentially catnip and tree sap and b) a long-term side effect of smoking the aforementioned catnip and tree sap is impotence. I've seen it happen and it's not pretty.
