  • 6What is the best way to help someone get over an addiction?

    I have a friend, well we're a little more than friends, but either way. He's been taking large amounts of mdma 4-6 nights a week for the past 4 months or so. Possibly longer. He's expressed that he wants to be able to stop and not be dependent on it. But I'm the only one in his life who really seems to be helping. Everyone else uses just as much as him. He has a history of depression, and so it's even harder for him to stop, because he feels like he can only be happy when he's rolling. But he needs to stop, or at least slow down. I'm doing my best to be there for him, but what else can I do? I just feel so helpless when we're laying there at night, with me holding him, while his body shakes uncontrollably, and he's so sad, and he gets terrible headaches....I just want to know if there is anything I can do to make this easier on him. Thank you.

  • 7How do I conquer my addiction?

    Just like an alcoholic I am completely addicted to food. Fast food, dounuts, chocolate, cheetos, pasta you name it. I want it to stop so badly. I literally feel like I'm starving even when I am not hungry, it's like a mental feeling of starving I can't explain. Please help me if you can. I don't know what else to do. Every morning I wake up and say, 'today is a new day and I will not overeat and I will not eat fast food.' but as soon as I pass a fast food joint or have a feeling to eat, that whole thought process goes right out the window. I tell myself that I need to just get through one day at a time, but I feel like I'm getting worse. My overeater annonymous self TAKES OVER. Please help!
