    In my experience the best thing to do is cut out the people who encourage the habit. I've been in a similar situation. Best to burn those bridges before it catches up with you IMO.

    Anon or delete please.

    I am at Uni studying a degree which later in life could lead me into jobs which require a clean Criminal Record. However recently I have taken Cocaine around twice a month. Not a lots of it but enough.
    I have it with friends i have known for 8 years-not uni friends but friends from childhood.
    As of this morning I have decided I never want to touch a drug again, I count my dealings with this drug as an experience, something some people may do as they grow older and enter and try new things.

    I need advice on a few things, Willpower, I have it but peer pressure may contest this and it could be put to a strain. Only time will tell.
    Also, should I not involve myself with said friends any longer, some of them don't do the drug yet still come out and enjoy the night. Should I do this or totally remove myself?
    Any advice/tips/opinions welcome.

    Thanks
    You don't need to cut your friends out of your life. I have plenty of friends who take cocaine on a regular basis. I don't do cocaine though (well, not any more). Just think to yourself- is this who I want to be? If the answer is no, then it's up to you to stop yourself. Hang out with your old friends, but when you see that there started to do drugs you can go into another room or pop to the shop or something. But yeah, don't make an unnecessary stink- especially if they're not pressurizing you into taking it.

    Like someone said already, tell your friends that you don't want to do it, before you go out. Make them promise you that they won't let you do it, and if they are your friends, they won't.

    Though it might be hard to stop if it is always readily available.

    What has the job that requires a clean record got to do with it?

    Are you not going to do ANYTHING illegal in the next few years? Even if you did avoid cocaine, you're still more likely to get jailed for being drunk and disorderly, or something silly like that.

    Just don't get caught?

    Well your nearly right, except having a drugs charge is considerably different to a Drunk and Disorderly (which would probably come of as a caution) The of course, I don't get drunk enough to act like a prat.

    Cutting out said drug means less of a chance of being arrested by many terms (its taken in public places etc etc).

    Then of course there are the implications of the drug, side effects, it becoming a habit, it becoming an addiction. Hence the sudden change of mind on the drug.

    But if you need a job with a clean record then it doesn't matter what the charge is or how severe it is. So just keep breaking the law, but don't get caught. You could be a golden boy but... life never works like that!
