Default Friend is using cocaine... again... :(

I've got a friend who used to use cocaine... she quit and has been off it for a couple years. She just sort of told me she's getting depressed and starting to use it again, but doesn't want to talk about it because she doesn't want me to judge her or make assumptions... I just hate to see such a good friend headed back down that road. Any suggestions?

Okay...

She sounds like she's just relapsing.

I don't think it's time to call all her close family members just yet.

Tell her to quit immediately because she is only going to make things worse. If your bish slap doesn't turn her around, then the intervention is the next step.

we're talkin $$$ a week, and from what little information i've gotten out of her, sounds like it started as $ a week and is headed for $$$$$$$$$$ a week.

Option 1, then head for the bish-slap and intervention.

Trust me dude, I know where you're coming from. I've used cocaine a good bit, and I'm not ashamed of it really. How people would want to do it more than once in a long while is beyond me, as during the only times I "binged" so to speak, I hated it. It wasn't enjoyable at all. It's a psychologically addictive drug. Sounds to me like she has a legitimate problem. I haven't touched it in a long while, because it's lost its appeal to me, for the record.


Fortunately, if she's admitted her re-using again, it's what I would consider a cry for help. Unfortunately, there's not much you can do outside of having a legit intervention and convincing her to cut off everyone who enables her. If you need to talk about it, or would like me to talk to her about it, I'd be more than happy to.

Hrm. I'm sure I know you. WRX kids in Marietta?

Also, to get this thread back off-topic, as much as I hate motivational posters:
