Cannabis addiction caused mental health illness
Posted by Anne2015 on 6 September 2015.
I've been with my partner almost 7 years and he has smoked weed since i met him. A few years into our relationship he started to deteriorate and i believe the weed caused him to develop a mental illness as well, his anger controls him, at time he is not in touch with reality and he says awful nasty things with no limit. Over the years he has also taken money for weed but never given it back and convinces himself that he has reason to not have to. He is aggressive, unpredictable and arational. In his eyes he is never wrong and everyone around him winds him up. He smokes from 7am before work, after work and non stop all night and weekend. He wants to sit in the house all night and day as the more he smokes the more he doesn't want to go out & finds it hard to be sociable he just watches TV 24/7. He slowed down the smoking for about 3 months and he was a complete different person, wanted to be outside all the time, was smiling, happy and enjoying life but then he slipped back and now he is even worse. I thin cannabis is a much bigger problem than people realise as i know many people with all the same issues. I fully believe my partner has a mental illness now and i want to find help to get it sorted as i can no longer watch him deteriorate.
