so my friend just admitted...

ok my friend that i posted about (jason) who got into trying coke and ****, well he just came out to my brother last night that he's addicted. he said he's been feeling sick, lost appetite, and i've noticed he looks like **** too. so basically, he admitted he's addicted and we're going to help him.

we're going to a health teacher (that we all know beyong a personal level) and she's going to get someone to help him out. we're going to not tell his parents at this point, just because its not THAT serious, and she would rather keep it confidential for the mean time. he's goignt o make an effort with all of us to try and quit, and then we're going to come out to expose it if it just doesn't work. idk i sort of knew this was coming, and i should have said something. the kid chris im going to say somethng to though. my friend told him not to sell to jason, but he did anyway, and now hes addicted. i just cant believe this, im just really concerned for him and scared for him and dont want to see him like this at all.

My friend told me he was going to buy an 8ball ( Apparently some amount of coke )

And what scares me is he tried it over the summer, and said he hated it and it made him feel like ****... but yet he just bought some more... ( This is the same friend I thought was going to come to school and shoot it up ) I've already gotten him help... But I do not know his progress It's all confidential... But he seems like hes doing better. he came by my house today wanting to work for my parents... which has never happened before so I assume he was in a good mood.

Coke can do terrible things to a life.

What I suggest is that if you really care about your friend, you'll hang out with him as much as possible. Dont let him off alone, because if he is as you say, an addict, he wont be able to control his urge. If you guys are with him most of the time, you can sort of keep and eye on him and keep him distracted.

I know it sounds odd, but try replacing one bad habit with another lesser one. A lot of times before it was outlawed, heroin addicts were cured with marijuana use. Marijuana produced a decent 'high' and since it has no physical addiction on the body, it can replace the other bad habit, and after its completely gone, quitting marijuana use is as simple as flushing it and not looking back.

I wouldn't advise turning him into a pothead..
I've been there. It's not a fun place at all. Though coke is a lot worse, in the long run getting clean is the right thing to do.

well we're all potheads so thats not a problem . i met someone once who quit coke by smoking cigarettes. i know that sound crazy, but cigarettes have a different craving, and im going to see if he's up to that. basically i just had a REALLY ****ed up night and realized he has to be my number 1 priority.

I thought about making a Dennis Leary 8-ball joke, but i didn't think it'd be appropriate.


Good luck, stick him in rehab if it gets really bad, my friend was in all that **** and she cleared up.

The drugs kids are going to now is starting to become a problem I think. 3-5 years ago I hadn't heard of anyone in the age range of like 16-19 doing anything more than like...X or something.

But my junior year of high school I knew a kid who started a coke habit, and in the last year alone I know (of) a lot of kids around 17 or 18 who now do coke or meth regularly. One of my brother's close friends died from meth not too long ago. My stepbrother does both.

an eight ball is the equivelant of an eighth of weed. (3.5 grams) its alot of coke, if you were to do it all at one time, you'd have a heart attack. coke is a really bad drug. due to people re-doseing often and dying from overdose. its really addictive too. he souldn't have even tried it.

ive never heard him ever want to quit something.. like he's a very stubborn person, but he finally got his cue to quit. he knows what he needs to do, and he knows he has a problem. and as we all know, the first step to rehabilitation is admitting you have a problem. so we're going to take care of it, and i know he wants to quit so i think it can work..

Your going from coke to cigarettes? That's the stupidest **** I have ever heard. Go to chew, because your lungs don't get messed up, and it's not AS bad. Then from chew just quit.

no i was just thinking the reason this person did it was to switch one addiction, to another addiction for obviously less harmful reasons. plenty of people are addicted to cigarettes, its better than being addicted to coke, thats for sure.

Best of luck to your friend. Sounds like you got him just at the right time for him to try and stop his habit.

Coke is bad stuff. I've been offered plenty of times to blow and I've never thought twice about it, the answear has always been no. The only time I might consider trying coke is if theres a little bit mixed in with a bowl, but that's even pretty damn skepitical in my opinion.

Hah and to think I thought noone in high school did coke or any of those harder drugs. Once I got into high school I was just like.. daaaaamn..

Edit: Oh yeah and after watching Pulp Fiction, I'm never trying coke. That OD scene ****ing hit me.

well the weird part was, on friday night my friend called up my brother (he was going to a party but he met up with him). i was in cortland at the time, so i wasnt home either. but anyway, he calls up my brother and he asked to meet at starbucks, they did, and he basically told him he was getting ****ed up frmo doing all this coke and wanted his help. then on top of that told him all these family problems and **** he's been having. idk, he needs real help i think. but we'll see what happens

I've knowingly smoked weed that had trace amounts of coke on it, but it was a very small amount. I would'nt ever actually try it. I hope your friend gets better man, just make sure you're there for him as much as you possibly can be.

Sometimes that's not ALWAYS the best course of action. I actually think it should be somewhat of a last resort. If you can help him get better without being put into an institution (rehab) it will probably be the best solution. If it looks like that will never work, then you have other choices.

You're hardcore.

Of course it isn't possible to have cocaine enter your system from smoking it. It has to be in the form of crack. Cocaine can't be smoked.

if youve got all that free time on your hands then go for it
im not saying putting him into rehab is the only solution but its a good choice(for the most part)
