    I appreciate you replying, I really do. But it's not as easy as that. I need it to function normally, I feel no high off the stuff. I need to be under lock and key. I just need a good way to inform my parent's. As im not in my proper mind i need some idea's/advice.

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

    Started out as a night out thing, keeps you going asnd happy. You need to take more to avoid the comedown. The session's grow from a night nto 3 or 4 to avoid coming down. Understand?

    Wow. How sensitive. But a little funny.
    If you want to tell your parents, just sit them down and tell them the truth. There's really nothing much more to it than that. Be open and honest and hope it turns out ok.

    Deinatly, But the whole point to this thread was for a way to tell my parents. The only way i will quit is under lock and key. It's to easy to just get hold of more and thus the cycle begins again.

    First try going cold turkey. Lock yourself in a room.
    If that fails then talk to a counsellor or something.
    You'll feel a lot better if you tell your parents though. This coming from someone with experience in these matters.

    Having read through some of the posts I see that my post was kinda pointless. Are you at uni?

    Uni or not, there should be people around who you can talk to. Getting used to telling other people like a counsellor or a mentor is a good way to gear up towards telling your parents. The more you're able to talk about your problems the easier it'll be when you actually talk to your family.

    Tell your parents at the same time but emphasise that you want to stop. Make sure you tell them both cos if you tell one of them the other is going to be really pissed and even a bit ambushed when you tell them with the other parent.

    Show that you've done some research into how to quit. Get a counsellor and ask if you can all go to see the cousellor together. Make sure you talk more about what you will do rather than what you've already done.

    I have no experience in this but this is the best advice I could give.
    Good luck. It's just a shame you got stuck in such a scene in the first place.

    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.
