I'm in Day 4 of quitting pot. I've been smoking every single day for years, only stopping when I had to go to work or when I ran out of money.
Anyway...I'm writing because I've been in a relationship for two years now, my longest on record. But I've spent all this time at least a little high, if not full-blown stoned. And here's the kicker: she doesn't really smoke. She'll toke up once in a while when I offer, but that part of her life has been over for many years.
I've been reading on here, and elsewhere, about the anxiety, depression, the sense of boredom and longing that comes with quitting, and I'm worried about that hurting my relationship. I haven't told her that I'm quitting. She's never confronted me about my smoking being a problem, so I'm almost embarrassed to tell her that, for me, it is. But what I'm most worried about is the unknown: will I be as fun or relaxed anymore? Since weed has been such a huge part of my identity, will giving it up change me too much for her? Will my definition of "being in love" change because I'm sober?
I'm really anxious about this. Has anyone else dealt with this situation? Any advice?
