The best friend I talked about on the main forum a lot "finally" got out of the good graces of the rest of the crew. He basically was kicked out of social events due to paranoia and arguing with everyone over weed and women. Now, he calls me telling me "he needs help and is stuck in the Poconos all by himself", even though other people are a mile away from him enjoying themselves and refusing to take his calls. I call to talk to him, and he calls me "uneducated" and then spends 10 minutes giggling while talking about weed. I point this out to him, and he says "I am not giggling over the weed, I am giggling at you being so uneducated by how great weed is for me". I had to tell him that I was too angry, and that I was hanging up the phone. I need to vent - he tells me he was on anti-depressants, but was smoking weed at the same time (which any sane person could see would effect the medicine) and now he declares that antidepressants do not work on him, and he will go back to just weed. I advise him that this is dangerous and risky, which he says "whatever" to. I know this is "typical addict behavior", but its just pissing me off. He "whatever'ed" every single logical, "normal" and IMPORTANT point I made in the argument, and even CHANGED the argument several times so that it went back to WEED = GOOD. Addiction sucks, and I am overwhelmed by my friend having it. At the same time, I love that I can decode this with what I am learning in Graduate School. I know the best advice is "Leave it be", but what else can I do to support him and to vent more? Thanks.
