My Girlfriend’s Weed Dependency Is Destroying Our Relationship

From a teen in the : Me and my girlfriend have been dating for a while and recently broke up because she has a lot of trouble controlling her emotions.

Inappropriate Emotional Responses to Stimuli

I Have an Anger Issue and My Girlfriend Is Scared

He understands and told me that “mom talks every night and...
