I have a friend who is basically a loser. He dropped out of school, while on a full ride, and now lives here in our hometown and goes to the local university. He is bright like me, but full of himself. He is studying programming but doesnt make grades like he could. He has an internship for the summer but neglects his studies. He is a hardcore druggie. He takes uppers every day and some sort of tranquilizer (usually alcohol or weed) every night. He also loves hard drugs like LSD and MDMA and tries to get people to try them. All in all, we are very different, I take my prescribed meds religiously (they keep me sane) and he is always high or drunk. He comes over alot but is drunk or high on something like ADHD meds, then takes more of whatever he is on. A common visit is him coming over drunk, also on Adderal or Vivance, and him drinking more, rambling obnoxiously and then driving home. He loves to tell stories about drunk driving, like “I love when I have to close one eye while driving in order to not see double”.
I could say more, but you get the picture. My other good friend is an EMT and doing better in school, although he drinks, he is responsible about it, never drives drunk and is good company. He and I would drink together back in my “self medication” days and we were responsible, civilized drunks.
Should I just ditch the guy who does tons of drugs? I feel like he is depressing and/or obnoxious and not really good company. I think he uses my house as a safe house to come down off things or to get drunk or high again. He hides all of this from his parents, whom he lives with. They’ve only caught him drunk a couple times, they have no clue hes on uppers, alcohol and crazy ■■■■ like MDMA and LSD.
I could use some advice, as this guy and my responsible EMT friend are my only friends who are here during the school year. I hangout with my other high school friends alot during winter and summer breaks.
