So today I got a call from my girlfriend in Melbourne and saying she was distraught is putting it lightly. Her and her sister are quite close and while over East her sister really opened up to her about some dark shit she's going through; she's actually addicted to smoking crack ...
I had no idea how to respond and she was just crying her lungs out on the phone to me saying she didn't know what to do. Her sister is actually the nicest person and, while I suspected something was off with her sometimes, you wouldn't have expected that. They went over East to go to this 4 day music festival which sounded like it was an amazing time for both of them. They just spent every moment together and her sister didn't do any drugs or even drink any alcohol. She opened up to my girlfriend and her friends about it and really wants to kick these drugs because it's really messing with her. Everyone wants to help her and she's keen to get off it, but my girlfriend is really scared and worried that when she gets back to Perth she'll get back on the drugs because she won't have anyone to watch her to make sure she doesn't relapse. Her sister left Melbourne to come back to Perth today whereas my girlfriend wasn't planning to come back until Thursday, but she's so worried that she's thinking of leaving tomorrow just make sure she doesn't go back on all the things she said she wanted to do. It doesn't help that all her ex-boyfriends are crack addicts and dealers.
I didn't even know what to say. She can't tell her parents because they'll do what parents do and apparently make it worse. She was thinking of telling her older, older sister (who's in her forties) as she's been through a rough patch but she feel she can't as she's dealing with a husband who's got Alzheimer's, not to mention she would probably tell her parents. I don't know what to do apart from being there for her when I can. We're also planning on turning her sisters ex-boyfriend into the police as she's the one who got her hooked onto the stuff, and he's a dealer making $10,000 a week. I think the fucker deserves it ...
So yeah, troubles n' shit.
holy shit man, that sounds awful,
that guy definitely sounds like he needs turning over to the police,
as for your gf's sister, just take her to a doctor/hospital, as long as she is an adult, there is no reason why the doctor would need to tell her parents, right? confidentiality and all that, and the doctor should be able to refer her to rehab.
good luck mate.
