I dont think its your "job" to save him. Just look at what the Christians did in thier holy crusade to "save" people.

We all have different paths in life.

My bro did Coke for years and they quit on his own, now he lives a 'normal' life.

But see I think that the 'normal' american life is worse than doing coke all day so thats where we may be different.

He needs to want to save himself . Friends trying to get him to switch his vice will not teach him self control , nor make him a better person. Accept him for who he IS and if his drug of choice gets out of control, or you just wont tolerate in a friendship, try to help ,let him know how you think of cokers, but also know when to save yourself .
Coke is the original "Monkey on your back " addiction, very tough to learn how to say "enough is enough " .
Good Luck

don't hang out with him anymore, and whenever he contacts you, tell him you don't hang out with cokeheads because they're fucking losers.

then tell him his family and friends are out to get him.. oh wait no he'll start thinking that on his own

thanks so much for all the advice :biggrin:. I still have some time to try and stop him while he's on drug testing for the next few months, but I gotta do something that will really help or the second after his last drug test his face will be in a pile of powder. :shake:

*nod* you can try, but remember- it's ultimately his choice and his thing to go through.
I think it's bullshit when people say you can't do ~anything~ -- because of course you can. You just can't do it for him and will need to know when it's just time to stand back.

my friend is only 15 and most of the time he's cool, despite moodswings. Hes on drug testing and had about 1.5 weeks to do drugs and get clean. I wanted him to do shrooms or dxm then smoke some bud with me, but instead at this party he locked himself in the bathroom with another coke head. He told me he did about 5 or 6 lines and he was tweaking out. He said he would do it again, but not for a while, but i know he's gonna get sucked into coke. My question is how can I get my friend to not do coke again and get him more into psychedelics :mushroom2:??? I need answers soon or he'll do it again!!!!




You may not want to hear this but a drug is a drug. Being unable or unwilling to deal with reality sober is an age old dilemma for people.  I generally may agree that coke is going to have more likelihood for negative effects compared to weed, but that is sort of beside the point.

You trying to convince your friend of that may only push him away which is probably not what you want. Best thing to do is be supportive if/when he ends up with a bad addiction. Also don't be too confident that you won't develop a problem of your own, I have seen plenty of people with severe addiction to pot and (albeit less often) mushrooms as well.
It can be easy to focus on other people and their problems, it takes attention off of yourself. I'm not saying you are doing that, just be aware.

best of luck. (coming from a person with 'just a bit' of experience in the area of addiction

It would be very interesting if the OP came back and answered this with an update though. I think it's cool to see old threads that are still relevant to addiction issues and concerns by their friends.
