How can I tell the difference between cocaine and meth?
I have a friend addicted to cocaine and now I think she may be
doing meth. Can anyone tell me how I would know the difference? Does
it look different? How should I get her help to get off either? Any
suggestions would be helpful. Thank you
is a crystal, it looks like salt. Coke is more of a powder, like
powdered sugar. The way to definitely find out is to put it on a spoon
and heat it. If it melts and vapors away cleanly (do NOT breathe the
fumes!!!!!) it is meth. If it doesn't melt cleanly and leaves nasty
crap on the spoon it is coke. The best thing to do is to be honest.
Say exactly what you said to us but say it to her, something like
"hey, I care about you and am afraid that you might be using drugs a
lot. I've heard that a lot of people get hurt from drugs and I'd hate
that. Give me a call if you ever need to talk about it." The important
thing is to be humble and honest and first a friend.
It really doesn't matter which it is, try
to get her help either way.
Quite often they can look identical. Meth
however, has more variations in color and texture. Meth pictures. For
help, I suggest the following:
1. Get as much info as you can
2. Develop a plan
3. Seek professional help
4. Realize the truthful limitations
5. Most importantly - Trust God
6. Discard any notion that there is an easy magic answer that can be
found by visiting an internet website.
I just wanted to thank everyone for
posting to my questions; you all have been a lot of help on what I
should do to help my friend. Now I know she needs my support most of
all and not my judgment if she is going to stop regardless of the
drug. Thank you
