Dear Lily – I might have a drug problem
I’m starting to think I might have a bit of a drug problem, but I don’t know how to deal with it. Personally, I see nothing wrong with taking four enormous lines of coke, a couple of pills and 15 mohitos, and then dancing in a neon vest and shorts for 12 hours solid to The Pet Shop Boys. However, at the last office night out, people were starting to talk. How can I go about finding some help?
Lily says – You might feel like you’re alone in dealing with this problem, but rest assured, many of us have to face up to the issue of substance abuse, and it’s not a pretty picture. I once ate five sherbet dabs in a row, and entered into what can only be described as a transcendent sugar-induced frenzy in the playground. At the time, I thought I was capable of anything, skipping rope and playing hopscotch like an utter maniac. However, it wasn’t long until the initial rush subsided and I fell head-first onto the concrete, crumbling into a tearful, snotty mess with grazes on both hands and knees. It was only then, when I had literally hit rock bottom, that I realised I had to take my life into my own hands and start spending my pocket money on more sensible things like crisps.
Hope that helps!
