My friends do drugs?

My guy friends do drugs and don't even realize it. They take sleeping pills and see how many it takes to knock one of them out first. One of the guys got caught today and he finally realized what he was doing was wrong. He feels pretty bad, and I'm sure they will stop now. How do I help them? I've already talked to the councelor, and she told me I have to be the one they look up to... but how?

    Drug abuse takes many forms, and they can all be dangerous to your health. Your friends are lucky they haven't accidentally overdosed. There have been folks who took too may sleeping pills and killed themselves without meaning to. Congratulate yourself for not taking the silly risks your friends are taking.

    I think what your counselor means is to set the example, be the one that can be cool and have fun without doing dangerous stuff. Don't lecture too much - I don't know how old you are but few people respond well to lectures. Sounds like you're not giving in to peer pressure so far but if that pops up, just keep telling people, you want to live to do a lot of cool things. You need your brain for that. You're not going to mess up your brain on purpose.

    Take the lead thinking of fun stuff to do that doesn't involve any drugs. Music, sports, games like Scene it if you're in to TV and movies - whatever. Again, tough to give advice without knowing your age. But be the one that walks the walk - live like you think. That's how you'll be the one they look up to. Good luck.
