    My moms in the same room as me, so i thought i'd ask her for some advice for you instead seen as she can look at it from a parent's point of view.
    Her exact words were 'He will need all the help he can get, so its essential that he tells his parents. If he has no success in trying to get off it with your parents help, then go and see medical advice'
    I also asked her if she'd want me to tell her if i was in your situation and she said 'Yes, i wouldn't be angry with you, i'd feel disappointed. Infact, i'd probably feel responsible, like i'd done something wrong. But i'd help you'

    By the way, my mom's brother was a drug addict for 30 years (it started with speed) and he died 8 years ago.

    You come off as slightly insensitive. The guy comes on looking for advice and you know some one seriously wants help when they're willing to ask it on a student forum full of trolls and such.
    Seems barely neg worthy. I didn't say any harsh words at all. Things like these need rather stern advise, if you know what i mean.

    Thanks for explaining though, you didn't have to. Appreciate it.

    Just say that you're addicted and need help. Though personally I'd see my GP for help before telling family, I imagine they'd offer more constructive advice.

    Yeah. Without sounding like a whiny idiot, you shouldn't have started in the first place. Why did you?
