Dealing with drug users
In your family or who are friends.
At what point do you get involved and try to set them straight? And what point do you tell them to "fuck off"?
Are there degrees of drug use that are more easy to accept than others? Alcohol, eh. Pot, ummm. Coke, crack, meth -- shit!
If they're friends, it might be easy to tell then to get some help, then decide when to cutoff the friendship and then semi-permanently ignore them.
But what about SO's? Or family members?
SO's -- you might be able to treat them like your friends, unless you've got some financial or other mutual arrangement in common.
Family members maybe a little different.

And man, can the patterns of addiction be the same or what?
Fucking, hiding away and doing that shit. Lying about it, getting defensive about it, or trying to defend it with lame excuses. Running away from it or hanging out with others that do it.

I'm sort of callous in some ways, so I don't think I would have a problem with even cutting all contact with a family member -- blocking them out of my life and saying, "They can die for all I care."
I'd even measure my involvement to some degree.
