My boyfriend spends all our money on weed and we barely scrape by

DEAR DEIDRE: MY boyfriend spends all our money on weed. Sometimes we even have to scrape money together to buy our cat’s food.

It makes me question whether we will ever be able to have children. I’m 26 and my boyfriend is 28.

We have both smoked weed every day for years now but I’m getting fed up with it and the effect it has on my boyfriend.

He gets paid £300 weekly in cash and he’s supposed to give me £100 for his half of the rent, council tax, etc, which are all paid from my bank account, but he hasn’t done that properly for weeks now.

He spends nearly all his wages on weed as soon as he gets the money. It’s like he assumes I don’t mind.

We both talk about how much we want to stop and give it up for a night, but we can’t get to sleep and sweat all night. Instead of trying to work through that my boyfriend resorts to buying more weed and the cycle starts all over again.

DEIDRE SAYS: I understand your boyfriend’s habit makes it harder for you to give up but that’s your first step out of this vicious cycle.

Find support through FRANK to boost your willpower (, 0300 123 6600). Stick it out through those night sweats. Just think how proud of yourself – and how much healthier – you will feel when you’ve kicked it.

Be tough with your boyfriend and insist he gives you the rent money as soon as he is paid or he forfeits his right to live in your home. I so hope the scales will fall from his eyes because I don’t see how your relationship can last unless he stops the weed and I don’t see how you can lead a full life unless you do.
