I am joining this forum because of a friend (not a very close one, but we were growing close when she trusted me with this problem). I met her in my local tuition centre, which I was attending because my Mathematics grades weren't up to par with expectations. She was a vibrant and very bright friend who loved to tell jokes and have fun—thing is, she wasn't very "popular" at her respective school. She told me that popular kids were actively encouraging and doing drugs, and this has only been a growing problem in her community. I want to help her so much, but I don't know how. I don't even know if she has done drugs yet. She is very tempted to, and has purchased marijuana from a drug dealer. If she has, I want to help her get it out of her system, and if she hasn't, I just want to get rid of the temptation that she has. It has only been growing, like the drug problem in her school. I want to try using the anonymity of the internet to find how to help my friend. Any suggestions or help would be very much appreciated. Thank you so much! UPDATE: @deanokat suggested that I send her an email, and I did. She replied with saying that she wasn't going to do drugs and isn't planning to anytime soon because she realised that it wasn't even the way to become popular. I will be more active on this forum and try to help others like he has helped me—thank you to everyone who replied!
