My boyfriend wants me to smoke ganja


July 23, 2016

Dear Pastor

I am 18 years old and I have a boyfriend. He is 23 years old and he takes drugs. I like him.

We went out one evening and he had ganja and encouraged me to take a draw. I did it, but I didn't like it. I started to cough and he told me nothing will happen to me, and it only happened because it was the first time I was taking a draw.

Every time we go out now he wants me to smoke ganja. He does not smoke cigarettes. He said cigarettes are not good, ganja is better.

Sometimes I feel that he is trying to get me not only to smoke, but to get me into drugs. I love him very much, but I don't want to get involved with drugs.

He is my first serious boyfriend. Do you think I should continue going out with him if he pushes drugs? What should I do, Pastor?


Dear V.G.,

Put your foot down. Let this man know that you love him, but that you will not do everything that he wants you to do.

You do not want to smoke, you are not a smoker, and you can also tell him that you prefer if he does not smoke.

Remind him that the abuse of drugs can kill and it has contributed to cancer. Many young women who have got into drugs have become prostitutes.

If this guy insists that you join him in smoking and in the use of drugs, end the relationship with him.
