One day at a time works best. If you wean off very gently, and use mutual support, you may find that recovery is possible. Consider attending a meeting of nicotine anonymous. ...Read more

Is it unsafe to expose a baby to third hand marijuana smoke? (ie. the smoke absorbed on a persons clothing/skin who just smoked it)

I think that's a YES: Honestly speaking, if it's ONLY once then, risk of harm probably no worse than exposing the baby to breathing normal FRESH air of the suburbs. However, in my experience, babies who are already exposed to adults within their circles whose clothes are impregnated with odors and smoke from marijuana, as well as tobacco, etc. are extremely likely to be exposed multiple times in their lifetimes. ...Read more
