My Friend Does Drugs - I Want to Help

One of my good friends is in a lot of trouble. I just met him last year, but I learned a lot about him. He does drugs and drinks, and well, you see where this is going ... I really want to help him, but I'm not sure how. We go to different schools, and I only see him once, maybe twice, a week. Is there anything I can do?! Please email me back or answer this. I'm totally confused, and he's into really bad things.

First, you need to talk with him and tell him that drinking and drugs are not the way to go, and that he is too good for this. Remind him that it will ruin his life. If he doesn't listen to you, you might want to talk to your parents about this or your friends' parents. This is a serious issue and even if you are afraid your friend might get upset, just remind yourself that you are helping him out in the long run.

Big Mistake

Ok, so I got busted at school for taking drugs ... big mistake, right? Yeah, I know ...Well, my guy friend that I've loved since 6th grade - and he loved me back for 4 years too - I gave him the pills to not get into trouble when I got caught, and it worked, but when I got to the office sooo messed up, the teacher who took me there told my guy that I told the principal that he sold me drugs and I had tried to frame him!!! If anything, I tried sooo hard to keep him out of it that I almost got expelled ... Now he never talks to me, and I hate him, and he hates me, but secretly I still love him, but I'm trying to let it go.

The drugs ... yeah, big mistake, and the guy ... he's probably history. Live and learn, and do better next time. The good news !! is that there will be a next time for you.

Drugs are for losers. Nice guys don't do them and want girls who don't.
