Gosh..if i had a son or a girl and i had suspicions of them smoking weed i'd find out b4 posting on forum..
I'll tell you what to do,stop thinking and act,thinking too much is like going in circles,do you really want to do nothing is the question here.You're the boss,coke is bad and you are going to do something about it :idea:
IF and only IF you do find he has used or is using cocaine take advise from me.
Dont be upset. The drug works on the reup take of dopomine and serotonin in the brain (hormons working on reward and love). Basically it is MADE to be like by any human being. If you try it you WILL like it. You cant blame him for trying it and liking it. You can blame him for trying it in the first place.
Cocaine is a powerful addiction. One of which people struggle with all their life. I am an addict. Addiction is a disease. Explain to him the consequences, but dont kick him out of the house. This is the worst solution. You wouldnt kick him out of the house if he had cancer.
Rehab.! Rehab! and Cocaine anonymous. However, beware of cocaine anonymous its a great way to find new connections.
If i could make the choice again. I would never have tried it. Its like an instant orgasm as soon as it enters my nose. Take it one day at a time. And make sure he knows your there for him.
Change his phone #. DOnt let him take the phone #s out of his old phone. Tell him to find the phone #s he needs and only give him #s of people you know are good.
Anyways back on subject. The obvious visible signs of a cocaine user are but not always:
--Dark circles under the eyes followed by wrinkles around the eyes
--A runny or stopped up nose
--They most always have a greasy face and sweaty palms
--Extremely figidty and talkative
--No hunger while they're high and possible nausea
--Very wide dilated eyes, like the color has become all black/ The same goes with ectasy
Well thanks for reading oh and this comes straight from the horses mouth, cause im high right now from that stuff.
These are the symptoms of cocaine addiction
- loss of the sense of smell
- difficulty swallowing
- a chronically runny nose
Addiction is a control of the mind. It is a mental health problem. It is a sickness. It makes people do things they would never do. It might not be a physical disease like cancer, but it is an illness for sure.
A couple of tells are (especially if he new to the drug): take into account cocaine effects only last up to 30 mins so these aren't to be taken as law
If he comes back high he will potentially over talk - it'll make sense, but it'll probably be a bit more hectic.
Or if he rushes out of sight when he gets home, obviously he doesn't want you to see him
2, look him in the eyes. This is easier if he has fair eyes. Look for any change in pupils. Mine were like moons and very obvious if you knew what you were looking for
Also, when you're going this it's likely he won't feel comfortable looking you in the face
3, biting lips or messing with mouth when he returns home. His mouth will be dry and sticky which is irritating, so he will mess. Also look for chapped lips.
4, over use of toilet tissue. If you notice a sudden increase in empty rolls. (He's got to blow it out at some point). Also look for tissue in his room.
5, body odour can change
6, if he mentions he's tired because he couldn't sleep
8, most obvious, where is his money going? If he asks for more or if he is broke but you're not seeing his usual pattern of spending.
I don't know his social background so hard for me to guess, but cocaine is expensive so if he is using it'll be in small quantities.
IT AS HOrrIBLE
No one chooses to become a Coke addict.
People may become addicted to Coke because of cultural, social, or personal stressors. Many things can cause and individual to try and then become addicted to cocaine.
An addiction is a disease. A mental disease.
At least I can get help with my cocaine addiction. There's no cure for your blantant ignorance.
