Have you ever found yourself with a very difficult decision to make?

What would you do if your good friend started doing something you do not approve of? In fact, no one around you approves of it either. All of your other friends are choosing to leave this friend alone because they are afraid of his new behavior. Your friend has started using drugs. It is really scary and you know he will get hurt. You don’t want to be associated with him anymore, and the easy thing to do is to cut off your friendship. Except that is not that easy. This friend probably needs your friendship now more than ever. You know he needs support, but it is hard not to be angry and scared.

What would you do?
