I have a friend that has been through a lot and it seems like lately it's really affecting her. I don't know how I can help her as she lives in a nother city and comes here occasionally. Last time she was in town we were laying in my bed talking and she started crying. After I pressed her as to what was wrong she mentioned something about having found a guy that shot himself last year and also that her mom doesn't seem to be following her chemotherapy like she should. She just graduated high school, when I fist met her she was your typical high school. Drank at parties and smoked weed often. Lately she has been taking xanax almost every night since a friend of her started dealing and she can get it for free. Tonight she calls me at 2 in the morning. I couldn't get to the phone on time but she left me a message about just wanting to say hi but she sounded fucked up. I finally got a hold of her and she told me that tonight she did coke, xanax, drank, and smoked 4 blunts. It seems to me everything she has experienced is catching up to her and she is turning to drugs. Not to mention she is done with school and that's a major hit to anybody. How can I help her before she goes too far with this? Cliffs: Friend did coke, xanax, drank, and smoked weed tonight. Seems to be using drugs to mask her problems.
