The guy I am seeing is 27 and addicted to weed.
Managed to finish his bachelor degree in accounting and looking to get his CPA. I like him, we get along very well...we have so many things in common...upbringing, life experiences, musical taste, food taste, etc.
He knows that smoking weed isn't good and he wants to stop...but not until he has learned to deal with the issues he faces everyday without crutching on weed.
Should I bother sticking around? Have some of you gone through similar phases? How would you deal with someone like that?

ok...I don't smoke anymore. But, through further research, it's absolutely NOT addicting. Anyone that says it is, they are full of it. The reason people get "addicted" to something, is through the actual substance your body mistakes for it's actual hormone, or through the substance itself. Nicotine. Nicotine is stored, in the body, and brain, without the perpetual habitual use of it, the body craves the nicotine, since its source, that's stored from using, is depleted, your body wants the cigarette/nicotine. Drugs, such as cocaine. While using cocaine (as with other drugs similar) endorphins in your brain are secreted. The moment your endorphins are gone, your body craves the substance it substituted for the actual hormone. Once you replenish it with the pseudo substance (the drug) an addiction is formed, for the body can't recognize the difference between the natural hormone or the substituted drug.
Weed. Absolutely non habit forming. There's no substitute in the body for it to recognize the natural material. it's like going outside and eating wild onions. it's found naturally in the soil, your body doesn't have any misconception of the nutrients from the plant to any other thing found. So, he likes weed, because of it's calming nature. He's NOT, I repeat NOT addicted to it. He may show signs of an addicted personality, and needs it because he THINKS he needs it, but if her were to stop cold turkey, there will be no adverse effect, or withdrawls without it.0
