> How about checking with the doc and see if he'll consider switching to Wellbutrin (which is used for those who wish to quit smoking.) I'm told it also help curb desire for pot. Another idea might be to add Naltrexone - just learned at a convention that this drug (in addition to SSRI) supposedly helps folks stop smoking pot. (He noted, however, that this is for the "dependent" pot smoker, not a social user.) I know this has to be a worry for you, but I can sure tell you that many, many people sure seem to feel that marijuana helps ease their depression......sigh........

Thanks for the info. We "think" it is still in
stage of "social" use rather than "addiction"
at this point. Wondering whether we should
consult another counselor who works more
with drugs since cognitive behavioral
counselor has been working with him on
depression -- which has abated but now we
have this formerly overly perfectionist kid
who is rebellious and smoking pot! Don't know
how to help him get to a healthy balance and
therapists seem to all be "segmented" into
specific areas--It helps to reach out through
this site. Thanks. Open to other suggestionss.
