I have read a lot of threads on here and everyone has been so kind and helpful to each other. I was wondering if you guys could give me some advice too. I have been dating this guy for about 3 months. Before that, we worked together for nearly a year and he is my friend more than anything. A couple of weeks ago I found out that he has been using meth 2-3 times a week for the past 4 months. He works long hours at a job he doesn't like and said he started doing it to cope with that. He is not in debt, shows up for work, and doesn't have any of the physical signs of drug use (bad hygiene, sores, dental problems)...yet. He has a long history of experimenting in college and had an issue with spice for a while several years ago but is scared of the stuff now. Other than the meth, he just smokes week every now and then. He says he is not an addict. He threw away everything he had and has not used it in two weeks. He said he has wanted to do it a couple of times during a difficult day at work, but that he doesn't think about it often. He says that he is ashamed of his drug use and knows that he messed up and won't do it again. I want to believe him. I'm not sure what to do. This man is my friend. I care about him and I want to help. But I don't know anything about drugs and I am absolutely terrified. He has a friend who used to do meth also and is now a month clean. His friend and I are the only ones who know about his drug use and I'm not sure that's enough support for him. His history and the fact that he lied and hid his drug use from me is the part that concerns me the most. So...IF he is being honest with me and what he said is true, do you think he has a serious problem? Could he be addicted? Is there any way for me to help him or does he have to do this on his own? I know we haven't been dating long, but I really care about him and don't want to see him overcome by this. I feel like he's not in too deep yet, but cutting off the little bit of support that he has could make things worse for him.
