I have a boyfriend currently, but he does drugs. I’ve asked him about it before, the why’s and what-ifs and he talks to me about it pretty openly. I’ve told him that they aren’t good for him, but he always says that the worst thing that could happen is that he gets caught with them. I know it’s not what God wants. He’s a Christian also but has been struggling with his faith a little. I’ve tried to talk to him about stopping, but usually find myself at a loss for words. What can I do to help him see that this isn’t good for him or what God wants. He says that the conflicts with his mother make him to turn to it, but I keep telling him that God is there too. I’m not always sure what to say to try and help him stop. He has the potential to stop, but I just don’t know how to explain to him that this isn’t what God wants. Any advice on what else to say to him on why it’s bad?

I can identify with your situation to a certain extent, though at the time I wasn’t dating my boyfriend yet so I pretty much kept quiet. Since he started dating me, there have been plenty of joking references made, and there’s still an interest in certain drug-related causes, but he’s stopped openly talking about his drug-related activities, and since we’re pretty much in constant contact, I have no doubt that those experiences are few and far between right now. I’m hopeful it’ll stay that way.
All that to say that I feel for you. If it completely repulses you, and he won’t quit, maybe you should take a step back and decide if that’s a deal breaker for you. What might the future for you two look like if he continues? If you decide that it’s something that will break your relationship with him, then tell him. If it’s not, then be stubborn and keep encouraging him to quit. Maybe help him find other recreational activities (and if need be, ways to get through potential physical/mental repercussions of his quitting, depending on the drug/drugs).
I’m praying for you, hon. This isn’t a particularly easy thing to try to reason through in a relationship. I hope things work out.

Definitely put some prayer in the mix. But keep note of how you feel. I was in a similar relationship situation and at the time i ignored it, but now i realize how truly depressed and miserably unhappy i felt. Be true to yourself whatever you decide.

I was dating this guy for over a year that was into a whole bunch of things such as pot, molly, lean, etc. he would drink a lot too and he was only 16/17. I told him i didnt like it and that i did not approve of it. he thought i was just trying to control him but he said he would stop and he did for a bit, but he went back to them. drugs are a distructive thing, espically when it comes to them comming between a relationship. my boyfriend (well ex now) started off being a christian but, because he got into drugs, he started hanging out with other nonchristians which started becoming a stressor on our relationship. Talk to him about it, please. because in time it will only get worse because if hes not stopping and you say he should, hes really chosing drugs over you. i was in this situation and not that he will but he may become dangerous and angry towards you and i dont want to see that happen. people mixed with drugs is dangerous and all the distruction that he is starting will affect you in the long run. its a terrible situation to be in, trust me i would know, if you need anything or have any questions im always here! im praying for you!
