Side hug for stranger....

All joking aside, time will change this.
One odd thing bout pot, after quitting as a long time user, he will have weird,almosg flashback type effects of still feeling super stoned even when not.
There is a real fog that lifts, it will be noticable to you..
All prayers and hopees for u two..
Thank you so much for your encouragement EH. It helps to hear from someone who was on the other side and made it. Definitely going to give him extra strength this month.

That was something I found encouraging: he openly told me how depressed he felt, or when he feels sick, or sad, or tired, or when he needs food (and then I get some for him to help his mood, gently push him to eat so he'll feel better, and then he does). I've asked him to ask me when he needs something so I can help. He was gentler about how he expressed himself (another long term issue we've been facing is his temper. He believed that smoking would make him nicer and, in his words, "less of a jerk", but it didn't work that way at all actually. He still had a hurtful raging temper). A few times in the last 12 days he went back to yelling and saying hurtful things and slamming doors, and I called him on it. Our communication is getting gentler. Just a couple hours ago, he tried to reassure me that he wouldn't leave me or move on to another girl if something happened. Then he walked us to the bus stop. It feels like he's trying. So maybe it was the THC talking before.
I think we're going to have struggles, but it feels indescribably good to see him getting healthy.
