If someone spends £230 on cocaine a week would you say they have a problem?

It started off as trying it on a night out and im spending atleast £230 a week on it, and i mainly do by myself.

I dont really have a family to turn to, all i have is friends but they do drugs to, and im seeing a married man at the moment but i doubt he would help me. i mean why would he, im not his priority

pebble agony auntAnd what exactly is your 'job' I wonder...?

Get yourself some help girl before your nose falls off (unless it already has). You know full well you will die if you don't stop.

Sorry, eventually this drug will take you to the next - cocaine today, then crack, then herion, then crystal meth and so on...

Get some help and turn to a family member. You will be surprised at the support you will receive just by asking for some help. Allow your family to love you the way God intended them to.

And decide today, if this is the life you want to live and the woman you want to become. There are a lot of great things in store for you, but drugs is not one of them.

Also, if this is the best your friends have to offer as a past time, then their outlook on life is dim and depressed people want to drag other with them.

Live your life to the best and get your education. You may have to save one of your friends one day from drug overdose, etc. and you can't do that with out hanging out with'em.

Turn to your family, make the first step

GrimmReality agony auntI am a recovering addict (8 years clean) spend 230 pounds a day on it?


You smoking or snorting? If you are snorting it all the time, other than the addiction you will blow your septum out in a matter of months.

Smoking it (it was my preffered way after I deviated my septum and before I moved onto smoking Meth) presents a problem all its own.

I would really suggest you seek some kind of help. If you are wondering if its a problem, you have taken half of your first step in discovering that your are indeed an addict.

A female reader, Jayney Y Australia +, writes (23 July 2009):

Jayney Y agony auntUmm, yes, you have a drug problem, quite a big one. In my experience coke is one of the worst drugs a person can get stuck into. It turns users into self-absorbed bores who lose touch with reality but think they're really cool. Medically, if you keep going, it can do permanent damage to your nasal passages, liver, cause permanent mood disorders, etc. People who associate with each other because of a common interest in drugs are not having a 'friendship', they are just a group of lost souls making fools of themselves. Your married lover is obviously very adept at spotting a female who is weak and easily manipulated. Wake up and get some self respect.

i think you must know you have a problem if you're spending over £900 on illegal drugs. dump your friends, get better ones, dump your married man- he doesn't care about you or respect you if he's still married, and seek help

A female reader, smeedle United Kingdom +, writes (22 July 2009):

smeedle agony auntI manage hostels and have worked with drug and alcohol dependents for years so feel confident in saying yes you do have a problem and its a big and not easily put right one.

You have taken the first step by asking the question on here but im guessing you know you already knew the answer.

Coke is a trendy drug for those that can afford it and it has less bad press than heroin for instance, but its equally damaging and in the same way other drugs are, its highly addictive and damages not just your body but your personality, moods, family and home life, social life eventually and its illegal!!

If your friends all do it, then its going to be less easy to stop, and stopping something you enjoy is never easy but stop you must as its £250 now but in few months time it will be £300 then £400 etc, you will sneeze, you will experienc mood swings and may loose your job as the most important thing in your life will be your next hit, just like it is to an alcoholic or Heroin addict.

Plenty of places to get help if you want it, you just need to make the next step the most important one, get help and regain your life.

Good luck

Starlights agony auntyes this is alot of money to be spending on drugs.

have u thought about how u see yourself in 5 years time?

drugs are a downward spiral and u are so young, you deserve alot better.

i know u dont have family, and just becoz u think this married man doesnt care for u, doesnt mean u shud waste your precious life on drugs, it really isnt good for u,

it will wreck your life.

please try and see the doctor and get help to get off this addiction as it sounds as if its out of control already...
