A friend just confided in me two days ago that she's hooked on cocaine. And I was really the only person she could call to talk to about the issue. I've known this girl for almost 10 years, she was one of my best buds in high school.. and I'd do anything to help her.

She told me she's been doing it for the past 5 years, but it's been almost non stop for the past 5 months. She has a one year old kid, too. One reason she's given to me as to why it'll be so hard to stop... is because the dealer she gets this crap from lives just down the street. Right now, I am NOT at the point of turning my friend in. Right now I DON'T want to go telling her parents. She DOESN'T want to go for help. The only thing I can think of.. at this point.. is to figure out who is dealing it to her, and turn THEM in. I know.. I know.. if someone wants it bad enough, they'd find a way to get it. But, right now, I can't think of anything else.

For years.... yeeears, this girl has lied to be about things in her life. So, simply telling me she hasn't done anything wont be enough. And I'm not around her enough to make sure she's NOT getting anything.

It's gotten so bad that even her boyfriend (the baby's papa) called me to help her out. The only thing I can think of to tell her is that if she does this shit again, she's risking having her baby taken away. She told me at dinner yesterday that she has planned (note.. planned) to not do it anymore - starting today.

With that said, what the fuck can I do to help her out? Anyone been in this situation?
