    1. Hello everyone,
    A friend of mine tried meth a month ago
    That was his first time and he smoked it for at least 14 hours continuously
    I remember he smoked 2 or 3 grams.
    And that was the only time he did.
    Two days after he seemed quiet and happy
    Now he thinks he's awaken and trying to be a better person "from his point of view" but he's not the same person we all used to know
    He talks too much, doing really crazy things and thinking too much
    Everything in his head is not organized he wants to do everything and anything in a short period , goes to every single persom he meet during the day talk to them for hours about things he wants to do but in a insane way
    Now everyone thinks he's gone mad
    We tried to tell him so many times that this is the effect of meth on your brain
    It's only a matter of time and you'll get back to the same person you used to be
    But it's not working at all
    What should I do to make him listen to me and how can I help him?

    @Ahmad25... I'm sorry to hear about your friend. Unfortunately, you can't make him listen to you. I think all you can do is be supportive and maybe try to educate him. Perhaps doing some reading on the subject and sharing what you learn with him would be a good thing. Maybe take him to a doctor if his symptoms continue. But, most of all, just be supportive and a good friend.
