    Basically there's this guy at Uni who I've become really good friends with.
    He is a great guy but has started taking several drugs such as cocaine and mephedrone in the last month. He is now taking these every day using between 1-2 grams.

    He gets pretty good grades but the really surprising thing is that he is a very good football player, and literally everyone thinks he's going to go pro he's that good. Alot of people have noticed he has a very addictive personality and some people just don't seem to like him at all. He does take care of his body and goes to the gym a fair bit, but he continues his drug use which surprise's alot of people, especially considering he doesn't even smoke or drink alot. He just randomly started taking it about a month back. He has started taking it more regularly in the last few weeks, despite still playing football and going to lectures. I have asked him to cut down on his drugs but he just doesn't seem to worry about it as it hasn't really affected his life so far, although he does look pale and drained alot of the time.
    I really think he could go pro in football and alot of people around Uni think he's exceptionally good; so I feel more inclined to help him out of this incase it screws him over.

    It's mainly mephedrone daily and cocaine on the weekend. He doesn't do loads but still is a regular user and seems to be getting more by the week. I've done mephedrone a few times but don't really know how addictive it is.

    Na lol. This guy hits the ball so hard and accurately its a joke though. And he's looks really young too so will probably get more powerfull. He was hitting the post and getting it in every time way outside of the box today.

    The thing is he get's VERY agressive and can be very argumentative at times.
