After a lengthy stint, I returned home and reunited with a friend who I saw as my best friend. Only to realize she was at her best during the stint maybe due to the long sobriety forced upon her.
Once I learned that there was this drug called spice on the market that could not be found in the u.a. Samples when testing, I then noticed any released offenders resorted to this to keep a constant weed-like high but not catch a dirty.
It also may be physiological to those using it because they feel like they are getting away with something which is another high on top of the high. To sum this up, she has no regard for the people around her. She has to smoke.
She does not want to motivate to find a job, because it will affect her availability to smoke when she has the urge. Her close relationships are strained. She disappears when too much pressure is applied for her to stop or when she feels judged.
Her moods are all over the place, and when she does not have it, she goes on a mission to find it or to get someone to provide it. It’s the saddest thing next to the rack and heroin epidemic.
I don’t know how to help her but my love is unconditional, yet I am losing my faith that she can bounce back from this find some functionality in life.
It’s an odd high. A person can smoke and get super high for 15 mins or so and then all of a sudden be right back to reality like nothing ever happened.
Then they smoke again and again and again until the supply is gone. It keeps them chasing it because they come down is not gradual. It’s immediate. Have a permanently lost the best friend I grew to love? How can I help?
