Hi – I’ve never been a drug addict, but I know a family close to me whose son was one.

They had to lock down and lock away everything from that guy; he stole money from purses and wallets, he stole family jewellery, he crept up on clothing discarded for the night (when the owner was asleep 3 feet away) to take money out of pockets – he lied, and he lied, and he lied.

He pawned his mobile phone (lied to his mother that he’d lost it) and he stole out of the bags of his school friends whenever he could.

He wasn’t staying inside ‘paranoid’, either. He would get out of his bedroom window so that he could hang around with his scummy druggy buddies.

Absolute nightmare. Totally let himself and his family down.

Good luck.
Symptoms? He lost weight, he smelled strange (probably unwashed), he was spotty, he was pale, he let his hair get long and stringy, but most noticeable of all was his eyes – spaced out with strange pupils.

    Well I only been addicted to nicotine, and partly alcohol and weed. I have also been offered harder drugs, but I have made it a rule of mine, to never try anything harder than weed or anything that causes physical addiction.
    Anyways quiting smoking was only hard the first 2 weeks, afterwards it slowly became easier and easier to adjust to not smoking anymore.
    Weed, was never hard to quit, I just realized it was to expensive to keep up the habit.
    Alcohol, is gonna stay with me till I die.
