How can you tell if a friend is using?

Sometimes it’s difficult to tell initially, but there are signs you can look for:

  • Increased activity, talkativeness, alertness
  • Increased heart and respiratory rates
  • Decreased appetite, sleeplessness
  • Runny nose or frequent sniffing
  • Frequently spending more money
  • Paraphernalia

Long term:

  • Psychological dependence
