Welcome to our Chronic Pain forum!
I admire you sticking by your friends side, and is admirable of you to do so. It must be tough seeing a loved one going through this, and I do hope he finds some help quickly.
I am sorry that I had to delete your post but we cannot discuss suicide on this forum, nor can we discuss illicit drug use either. However!…. I have posted some 1-800 help numbers here for you, in hopes,.. this will give you some resources to offer him. Of course,... some of the numbers are not useful to you, but I copied them from the Depression forum, that one of our wonderful moderators posted, so choose the ones that will be of most value to you and your friend. Please do call some of these numbers right away, as it sounds like your friend is having serious problems, and needs professional attention right away.
I feel badly for the both of you, but we simply cannot discusses these issues here.
