new hubby into pills, alcohol, MJ and VIAGRA

Posted by retrojen on July 20, 2004, at 20:19:29

I need some sage advice on how to approach my new husband. I found out right before we got married that he smoked pot "occaisionally". I didn't mind - I have no problem with purely recreational use. I already knew he drank- daily, but moderately. He admitted to having a prescription for Ativan "a long time ago" for having sleep problems.

In the middle of our moving in together, I found a his prescription receipts. For at least the past year, he has been taking Ativan on adaily basis- the past 3 months he's been refilling every two weeks. 40 1 mg pills in two weeks! He has also been taking Viagra, and Cialis for at least six months.

To top it off, I've encountered him smoking multiple times per day.

NOw I understand how it all ties together. MJ and alcohol can increase anxiety, Ativan can cause rebound anxiety and all of the above can cause erectile dysfunction.

My biggest concern is there may be an underlying medical condition that his primary doctor has done nothing to check for- anyone who gives out 12+ refills of a benzo with no restrictions should be hanged and shot on sight.

He's actually a wonderful guy, but obviously a closet drug addict. There is not a pill bottle in sight, nor do I see him take anything stronger than Advil.

What might be a good way to discuss this with him?
