    There's a female friend of mine who's a very good friend. I want to try weed soon and was just telling her about it. She says, "If you ever do that, don't talk to me again. I hate people who do drugs". Ermm..I appreciate her concern, but what's it got to do with her?
    Should I do it and not tell her about it? I would feel terribly guilty, but then who is she to have control over my life? She isn't my girlfriend ffs....how do I politely tell her it's none of her business? Or should I just do it and not tell her?

    just do it and not tell her, would save so much trouble. I have a friend who's brother had a lot of problems with drugs, he used to smoke a lot of weed and became paranoid. I smoke weed semi regularly and know the risks, but I don't mention it because I don't want to upset her.

    EDIT: Why the neg? Noone ever told a white lie?

    Don't see the problem
    I bet if you told her your going out drinking she wouldnt care, which is more harmful.

    Perhaps bring it up again, with some relevant facts & print outs in order for her to realise it's notlike your doing cocaine or something.

    Whenever people get like this with my smoking, I remind them that I'm an adult. If I was dating them then that is a different matter, of course cos youre a lot more intimate and that. She should respect the fact that you can make your own decisions though.

    If it upsets her then just don't do it around her, but you're capable of making your own decisions, yes? So if you want to do it, it shouldnt stop you.
