This is not about me... so dont get your panties in a twist.
I have a friend who i recently found out he did coke not long ago, i dont know how much and i dont know why he did it, but i will present some information to you and tell me if you think im overreacting.
Last month, he was skint, he had no money for all of january, his reasoning being he blew it all at christmas getting wasted - told me it was just drink he bought - i beleived him. so he had no money last month.
he got paid circa 8 days ago - he texts me tonight saying he has no money, had car tax to pay for 12 months, and loans to give his parents...
he drives a 1.4 car tax would be - if the same as my 1.6 8v astra - around £165 - about 10% of his paycheck. loan wise, i have no idea what he borrowed, but i know he got the "so called" loan from his mom, and i doubt his mom is gonna give him stupid amounts of money, now he tells me he has £25 per week left until he gets paid.
am i being over-reacting in thinking that he blew the rest on coke, is a coke habit going to kick in shortly after taking coke for the first time? i dont know, ive never touched the stuff, but i dont hang around with the people he does, so i dont know if he is doing it regular.
he does go out with this crowd an awful lot, and i dont know how often he is taking it, if at all... one thing i do beleive is that he doesnt drink and drive, so i doubt he would take drugs and drive, although he has seemed to change the past couple of months anyways, so i dont know...
anyone with experience (friend, family, yourself being an addict/ex-addict), after seeing what ive written, does this sound like the type of thing someone who recently got into the drug would do?
I have had a dabble in the green stuff before now, but its something i did once or twice when i was younger and it never went any further, i know this started off as a bit of green with some mates, and im not one to hang round with the people he has recently become aquainted with (dole dossers who spend every waking hour in the pub/house parties/ houses doing weed and getting drunk)
ive tried to keep as much information about who he is to myself as i dont wanna hurt anything or anyone by asking the question.
