I need your prayers
    #2473805 - 03/25/04 07:00 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

My best friend used to (about a year ago) live downtown and smoke ice every day all day. I would come over to his house to walk his dog because he didn't care enough to even let the dog shit somewhere besides his stairs. He had scar tissue built up on the inside of his forearms/elbows because he would scratch them so much when he was sketching. He becomes a totally different person. Anyways he quit doing it for a while. When he did he moved back home (suberb). He was a lot better. He moved out probably 6 months ago. Was doing really well. Then he lost his job for doing some stupid shit trying to rip the place off. Later I find out that he's been doing meth on the side for a while now. His girlfriend, who was probably one of the best things to happen to him, left him for a) doing it and b) lieing to her about it. He later admits to his usage to me. However at the time the reason why I didn't make a big deal about it is because he seemed like he was maintaining his addiction ok and keeping things realitively balanced (for him at least) Lately though he's behind in rent, things from his landlord's and housemate's rooms have been stolen. He won't go to the job interviews that his housemate sets up for him. He's doing meth several times a week smoking it, smoking it through shabongs, and hotrailing it. His housemate has had conversations with him where he expressed intrest in shooting it. I just can't do nothing so I am going to tell his dad what's up, try to organise an intervention, and convince him to go into rehab for a little while. Please pray for him, his name is Joe. Maybe even burn some tobacco for him. Thank you so much. I can't do this on my own and neither can he.

Good vibes are coming his way... You're a good person dude,  just be positive, and try helping him anyway you can :smile: and good things will happen.
I also lost one of my brothers in Europe to heroin :frown:

I hate to say this but just to read the few mentions of speed in that thread and I am craving it..
if you dont all ready understand the pull some of these drugs have on people.
hopefully he chooses to quit before his body demands it like mine did.
my thoughts are with you friend :heart:

Merkaba- I am sorry to hear about your brother :heart:

Thanks guys. Yeah I have a cousin who is a junkie. I fucking hate hard drugs. I mean if a person chooses to do this sort of thing it's their choice, but I wish that people could find some sort of balance with them.

Meth is such a horrible drug! Like crack, it just takes over your life. If you can, you should try to talk your friend into getting into some treatment/rehab program. But until then, all you do is be a friend to him. Best wishes to both of you. :laugh:
