Tramadol Is Killing My Friend. How Can We Help? by chuksonia(m): 11:51pm On Apr 19, 2018
Hello good evening guys hope we good?
let me go straight to the point I've got this friend of mine who stays in the same estate her with me in ibeju-lekki area this young man is in his late twenties and also a graduate, this his addiction started way back when we were still undergraduate.

He used to use this particular drug just because of reading sake Co's he once told me his brain it's always at it's peak whenever his on this drug and he tends to assimilate anything he reads, now he's outta school though he got side hustle put guys my guy is outta hand the rate at which he takes this drugs now is alarming the reason I'm saying this is simply on the fact that I was with him yesterday evening and I needed him to enter d number of a mechanic he recommended for me to fix ma car,... his hand was really shaking badly that I noticed he had to quickly adjust by using the other hand to hold on to the phone, I tried engaging him into a man on man conversation but he reluctantly snapped out! so when we drove to his apartment I noticed just when his was about to take a leak just outta curiosity I entered his room and saw lots of sachets of these particular drugs I mean lots of it, so I confronted him and there he goes telling me he can't go a day without taking nothing less than 800-1000mg I didn't know when I said Jesus, and he is always aggressive I'm just feeling very concerned the thing is that he doesn't listen to me on matters like this, and he's fiance is a nurse and she's also not aware of his addiction

His mother too isn't aware although both his mum and girl are close to me I'm thinking of bringing them into talking to him especially his fiance Co's I know he loves and respects her and would most likely listen to her, but at the same time I don't want to be seeing as a snitch and end up spoiling our relationship he'll never tell me anything and most likely won't trust me! how Do I bring them to know about this without making it all pointing to me, note I'm the only one he opened up to.. even he's fiance as close as she is she has no idle about his addiction and seriously assuming he's only taking it occasionally I won't mind or maybe taking it on a low quantity I'll just be about fine but a thousand mills daily hahba he needs help!

Addiction is a serious stronghold and a ‘respecter’ of no one. The only sure way is to get him a serious white collar job where he knows he needs to be at his best at all times.

In the evenings, make sure you are around him chilling in some social gatherings or hangouts...

Good luck!

that drugs is a killer. this one time I took it for straight one week, felt like a mini god. The following week I stopped taking it I was really really weak, to the point I couldn't carry a bucket of water, and it slows your heartbeat (for me)
the other time I took about 300mg, first time a babe came to look for me, my level couldn't stand( what an irony I thought the drug makes you a monster in bed)..
avoid the drug, doesn't give any reasonable pleasure.

Please, let his fiancée know. You can't watch her marry a drug addict. He must change before getting married to anyone. The problem here is that, he isn't fighting to stop. Yes, he needs help but he has a very big role to play. He needs to know and agree that this drug has negative effects on him and then make efforts to stop.

He should not stop....... He should increase it to 2800 - 3000 mg a day. He is as strong as a horse...... By the time his organs start to fail, he would end up as others.......

Exactly how a young graduate was introduced to this sh**t by His friends. These guys even mix soft-drinks with methylated spirit .I personally called him one day and explained to him how dangerous it is but he swore never to take it again. Just last week his family noticed he's been restless and talking to him self for 2 days straight ..I learnt he's been taken to his hometown for a rehab.

serious white colar job u say, funny this one doesn't respect me he's always having it anywhere on him especially when he's around me the most annoying thing is that the aboki who keeps basket at the entrance of our estate happens to be he's major supplier!, I mean it's an everyday thing I even told him to reduce his intake I didn't even say stop and he told me instead of reducing that the level is to increase....

It takes just two weeks to stop the drug and its withdrawal effect. Most opiate users wants to stop but the withdrawal effect is not easy, but there are drugs that can help him out of it if he had made a decision to stop.

I swear, bro. I've been there. I used to be addicted for over for years. It was impossible for me not to pop at least 300mg daily. Stopped that sh** early this year- January to be precise- when I knew organ failure was close. The withdrawal symptoms were hell, literally. Thank God for my life! cool

Indeed.... I would never use tramadol, even if I have genuine pain..... It's so so addictive and dangerous.....

Happy for you.... Pls, don't go back to it......

it's okay ma the thing is that baby boi has being in this type of situation before nd honestly when u call bae to tell her and the guys deny such act as he is a very good actor and then reverse the matter to make it seem like baby boi isn't happy for them or has interest in her, and ladies eh can believe anything there man tells them even if it's a lie!, I'm just wanting to see how I could make him leave it carelessly maybe in his car or apartment where he's Obaby would see it and since she's a nurse she should be able to know the drug and probably confront him, as for me I'll rather tell his mum than tell a bi*tch who would latter turn on me....
