This will make it harder for the addict to perceive the problem and begin to seek the solution.As the addict approaches their bottom and their disease worsens, family members and friends have a tendency to enable the addict, allowing them to postpone the ultimate repercussions of their using.
This is where your compassion, patience, and encouragement will be called upon.
The outcome will be the mutual reward of nurturing a new and healthy relationship. Strengthen your own mind and body, exercise your own soul.
We as individuals can only be responsible for ourselves. Marijuana addiction in your children, spouse, or other loved ones is difficult for you to live with in healthy ways. Some options are 12 Step and support groups for friends and family, church groups, and therapy.
The time spent in the past by the addict in the pursuit of getting and staying high may now be spent going to meetings, reading recovery literature, speaking on the phone with other MA members, writing, meditating, and praying.
These activities are of paramount importance to the newly clean addict and your support will be of great value.
