I have a family member that started in high school. He is now 31 and still parties and drinks and gets drunk alot. As far as I know he still does marijuana on a daily basis when alone and with friends. I think they call it a pothead?
-Is this normal?
-Would this cause verbal outbursts and angry/ defensive behavior?
-Would this be the root of ‘labelling people and making belittling jokes’ that seem still rather high school (may it stopped emotional maturity and growth?)
-Would this be perhaps why he is aggressive by nature?
I am just wondering if this is drug misuse or would stunt maturity?
i don’t want to sound like I am judging, but i have run into many conflicts with this family member who handles it by intimidation. Just trying to understand the situation better.
not violent. I didn’t say physically violent
