Hi everyone. I'm thrilled there is this forum for those of us supporting a loved one through this process. I have a big concern because my husband started TSM and has for the most part remembered to take the pills but he is also smoking weed a lot while drinking. It's been about two weeks and his binge drinking seems to be increasing. Does anyone know if the weed is counteracting the efffects of the naltrexone? Any ideas on getting home to cut back? We are newlyweds and I'm losing my mind with the drinking. I really want this to work

Sunny, I haven't heard of weed having an effect on TSM.

It's normal for drinking to increase after an initial decrease. We call it the "Honeymoon" effect, try searching for it here. It's called the First-Drink effect here:

It's mentioned under "What Should You Expect to Happen?"

Take a look at the 4 month graph on this page too:

But keep in mind that most people take 6-12 months. In any case, it will give you an idea of the up and down nature of TSM as the endorphins get blocked and then the brain fights back (to no avail).
