Open Question: how do you know when social cocaine use becomes an addiction?

what are some warning signs – i use cocaine, merely just to “wake up” once in awhile…i dont spend money i dont have, i dont trade off bills or food or anything for it, i only do it when i have the extra money. but sometimes when i buy it, i plan to save it to last me awhile, but once i do a line or two, its like, 2 hours later im still doin rails.

obviously it is a problem if you are choosing cocaine over like, the electric bill, but im not like that. what are some red flags that its getting out of control, BEFORE it gets out of control? i take counseling, i am a 22 year old widow, and it just helps me make it through the day a little easier. my counselor and i discuss it, medication is not an option, as i have tried it all, and none have worked. this is the only thing that has ever helped me to feel better and have more energy to actually get things done.

btw, please dont preach, i really cannot stand that. i have good reasons as to why i use it, dont judge me.

thank you!

Open Question: Explaining scheduling of drugs/cannabis?

Can someone please tell me why cannabis is scheduled as a Class I drug and deadly/toxic drug such as meth is class II. Marijuana serves a purpose for the dying, yes it may be abused but no addiction or severe harm equals drugs like meth which are scheduled, and cocaine. Cocaine/meth have recorded deaths, and many addicts. Marijuana user’s are among us all…it may not be good for us all but for most, it causes little if any harm. I believe marijuana should be decriminalized and available for use among the sick and medical patients that need it.

Open Question: Should I stay married for the children? Is marriage supposed to be this complicated?

A little background, I am 26 and my husband and I have been together for 13 years! He has a very addictive personality and has had issues with (in order) marijuana, crystal meth, acid, cocaine, crack, alcohol and now sex. Somehow we have managed to work through all of his addictions, except for the most recent sex. He has been unfaithful twice in the past year, and I suspect he is doing it again. Our kids are 9,7 and 4. Should I make an effort to work through this again, and risk my own health (due to the infidelity) or should I call it quits? I am so confused, I just dont know what it is that I am supposed to do at this point. Do most marriages have this many problems?

Alsom could I sue him for ruining my marriage?

Open Question: Can anyone recommend a nicotine patch?

I am wanting to quit smoking. I have tried cold-turkey. I have tried to ween myself off of cigarettes. I have tried Wellbutrin. I have been unsuccessful. Because of having diabetes and high blood pressure, I am desperately trying to quit. I was able to walk away from a cocaine addiction and quit drinking, but find that quitting cigarettes to be most difficult. I cannot chew the gum and don’t think I would like the lozenges. I am wanting to try a nicotine patch and would like some reviews from others that have used patches and were successful.

Open Question: Cocaine additction movie…?

Can’t recall the name but about 4 yrs ago I watched this really really good movie (at least I thought so) that was about a dude with a cocaine addiction. Sorta like ‘Less than zero’ but not as old and much more involved with human emotions and why he became addicted.

I’d really really like to watch it again except I can’t remember the title nor do I remember who played in the movies. If someone has any idea. PLEASE let me know. Thanks.
