this is about a friend of mine. i am running out of ways to be there for him. all he does is look at the negatives in life, and when he can't handle things...he does coke. he's been lying about it and totally denies the fact that he is doing it. i have proof, and have confronted him several times. i told him if he wants to live in denial then i will just ignore the fact that he is slowly killing himself. i know he's doing it. he came over tonight and his hands were shaking, he was pale and wide eyed, and he has been up all night. he rarely stays up all night, and when he usually does it's because of this. i want so much to be there for him but how do you help someone in denial? i can't tell if he really wants help or if he just wants to be left alone.
