How do I know if my boyfriend is using/addicted again ?

I've been seeing my my boyfriend for a very long time and we broke up because of the amount of weed he smoked and how he was treating me while he was using it, he was a severe addict. He then stopped and decided to turn his life around for me, he claims he's been off of its for months now. We recently got back together and things have been great for a few months. However he then turned up smelling very strongly of it, his hair, his breath, everything. I personally don't want to go through the stress of coping with the weed addiction with him and it would not be worth my time as I'm moving to England next year. He says that he was around people who were smoking it and he was smoking a cigarette. Previously he lied all the time how do I know if he was lying again as his breathe smelt of weed?

Actually you can't find if he continues to lie. Since you're smelling weed from his breath that's for sure he is taking it again.

Hello and welcome to EHF !


I went through your query and i understand your concern.You can get his urine tested for the addiction or any substance abuse. Breath analysers would be abit difficult to sneak with. If he is not putting your relationship over his addiction he is not worth it.



Take care
