Hard pill to swallow
I have just recently found out that one of my closest friends is taking drugs with some of her other friends at her school and I’m not sure what to do about the situation. We haven’t seen each other in months and have only been talking on Snapchat. I’m scared we’re drifting apart, as she’s changed heaps. I don't know what drugs she’s taking, but I am scared for her health and safety.
It’s good you are concerned for the wellbeing of your friend. There are some secrets that are just not safe to keep, and this is one of them. The worst possible scenario is that some serious harm befalls her as a result of her drug use. You don’t have to deal with this on your own. Tell a student welfare teacher, her parents or a trusted adult. She may not appreciate it, but you’ll be able to sleep at night knowing you did the right thing.
