Im Not Sure What to Do With My Heroin Addicted Cousin. ?

Question by : Im not sure what to do with my heroin addicted cousin. ?
So my cousin she has been clean for the past week. She called me this morning complaining that she feels like shit from the withdrawals. She convinced me to take her to get pot because she said its the only thing that helps. When we got to the dude she ran out of the car came back and said “he thought I wanted crack, not pot.” She didn’t take it she definitely bought heroin and didn’t want me to know. Anyways when I brought her back home she went into the bathroom and when she came out her forearm was completely red. Well it turns out she did the same thing to my sister last week. And now she wants my sister to drive her to her piece of shits boyfriends house in the morning. How do we tell her no without losing her and should I tell my dad? I don’t want to get in trouble for taking her to get pot.

Grief Websites for Young Adults?

Question by Flamethrower Mouth: Grief websites for young adults?
I am 25 and my father has mesothelioma and is in hospice. I am having a very hard time dealing with it and it is just my mother and I as far as family goes. My fiance is supportive but I feel like it’s too much for him to comfort me all the time. My friends have stepped down and are, I guess, ignoring the fact that this is happening to me. I would like to email or have a support group about young adults who have gone through the same thing as I am going through!! I am not a teen, but I am not old enough to just “deal with it” yet….

Dear Flame,

Very sorry to hear about your father.

Is There a Way to Kick a Marijuana Addiction Without the Resulting Depression, Mood Swings, and Other Miseries?

Question by Eric R: Is there a way to kick a marijuana addiction without the resulting depression, mood swings, and other miseries?
I know experts say that there is no such thing as a marijuana addiction, and that is JUST charming, but back in the real world, I need answers.
Every time I try to quit, I get plagued by depression and bad moods.

“…but marijuana is a depressant. You should feel better.”

Once again, a charming sentiment, but that’s just not the way things work.
I’ve lost friends, jobs, and a social life in my attempts to quit…and by “social life” I don’t mean sitting on the couch with my stoner friends. When I go without, I get so depressed that I don’t want to go anywhere. A lot of working at a job has to do with being nice to others. Whenever I try to quit, I get angry really easily. I’ve lashed out at friends, co-workers, and even customers, when otherwise I would have been very nice.
