8 years of coke

Posted by charlieboy1 on 12 November 2014.

Hi, im 24 years old and have been using cocaine since I was 16, it star out just small doses but has increased over the years. I now consume anywhere from 3 grams to 8 grams a week. Its mostly on weekends but occasionally during the week, I only ever take it when im drinking alcohol, I feel like I have some control over it because sometimes it doesn't enter my head until I have a drink and I dont crave or need it but then once im out with friends and having social drinks its all we do and the sad thing is that everyone is doing the same all my friends and more I know all kinds of people who take cocaine regularly, only the powder though a dont know anyone who smokes it s think that must be an American thing. Anyway more to the point I don't feel like its harming my body im pretty fit and do workout but I can't help but think it must be really damaging me internally. Does anyone have any advice or information that can help me?

Wow you sound like my son use to....he was an addict, and believe it or not said exactly what you have said..the unfortunate thing is addiction creeps up on you....give it another six months, a year, and your world will / could look very different ......Hunni, get to your GP now..make the changes now before it's too late. My son had over 4 years of hell.we all did..it was stressful, scary and that's the reality of drugs...if you can get support from family...hugs to you ..you deserve a clean happy life xxxxx

Apart from the cost of this evil white powder which is bashed to pulp and 9 times out of 10 just plain ole paracetamol, it leads to heavy nose bleeds, you look like a zombie when you sniff it, yr eyes pop, and yr constantly sniffing. My son like you , only had it when he went drinking, he liked cannabis more, it got out of control, money, drugs, money........ stop taking it, get some help, my son is getting help now, it ruins you!! Like cant take no more said give it another 6 months, a year

There's some good advice here but maybe you have found it difficult to talk to a close friend or family member.
The Icarus Trust is a charity who offers a Family Friend service. You would be assigned an individual who would listen, help you understand your situation better and advise you on support that is available.
Please contact Icarus Trust on help@icarustrust.org or visit our website www.icarustrst.org
I hope that this will be helpful.
