OK, I'll probably get flammed for this, I know I should use the drug thread, but I'm too lazy. Anyway, me and my cousin have been great friends since we were little. He lives in Everett Mass, (very urban) and I live in NH (suburbs). We always used to call each other, hang out on weekends, have sleep overs, stuff like that, but recently (the last 4 or so months) his attitude has really changed. I would call him every night or every other, and we would usually answer, but his mom started picking up and saying he's out with friends. We slowly started drifting apart, not talking very often. I asked to sleep over, and he said he didn't want to. That's when I knew something was wrong. Me, living in the suburbs and not having easy access to friends, got bored after a little while and called him. We talked for a little while, and he was much different than he used to be. A few things stick out in particular:

1. His taste in music. His favorite band used to be the Rolling Stones, he even got to go to the big bang concert. He doesn't even like them anymore. It's all pretty much emo now.

2. Me and him made a pact that we would NEVER make a myspace and agreed that they wasting peoples lives. Now he has one, goes on every day.

3. Change in attitude. When I would talk to him on the phone he would ALWAYS fight with one of his family members. And like I said, he's out real late almost every night. It got to the point that he wouldn't even return my phone calls. He even told me recently that his mom thought he was smoking marijauna.

We don't talk anymore but the last conversation we had really hit me and I didn't know what to say. I'll right it down as best as I recall.

(On AIM)

Him: How do you block your number?
Me: You don't return my phone calls, why should I return your IMs?
Him: Stfu
Me: Why should I?
Him: Fuck you, go get fucked in the ass.

then he blocks me.

I don't know whats happened. Over the course of 4 months, we go from best friends, to hating each other, and I have no other explanation except drugs. (Marijuana most likely) Doing drugs DOES run in our family, I must say. His father is in jail now for possession of cocaine, and he doesn't give a shit about it. Infact, he's buddy-buddy with him. Tell me what youguys think happened to him.

So you come to a site full of masturbating teenagers and a few immature adults to find an answer to make someone like you? Dude, it's probably puberty Maybe he doesn't want to be on the phone to his cousin every night. Maybe he doesn't want a little sleep over with another boy. Maybe he wants to meet new people and get new friends and do something a little different. Most peolpe smoke weed in their life, just accept it.
People move further away from each other as they grow up, it just happens.

it's difficult to say really
that's not a very responsible thing to do as a cousin

how old are you both? the same age?

I think you're right.

His father went to jail.... i reckon he aint feelin great?
Maybe hes very down and don't know how to express it.....
#10
His friends, probably living in the urban area he does, most likely had a huge influence on him.
#11
He made other friends?

You: Hey [cousin name]
Him: Hey Joe (what you doin' with that gun.... )
You: Hey erm...do you do drugs?
Him: Erm... yeah...

or

Him: No! shut up man!
You: Good...just looking out for you

if he's listening to emo music, then he's crying in a corner. when his mom asks him to cut the grass he wishes it would be more emo and cut itself. has he stopped washing his hair?

pretty muck an you need to give the poor guy some space and if he is smoking pot go smoke it with him have some fun

#20
Definately drugs. He's probobly addicted to huffing sharpies. God knows what will happen if he ever tries pot. Probobly kill someone and have to ***** himself in prison for cigarrettes.


Or maybe he is just changing. It happens to people all the time.
#21
I used to be close with my cousin too, but now the only time we talk is on IM. And this happened in a matter of months, too. It's definitely not drugs, he's just older and wants to hang out with people who aren't his family.

Maybe you should accept the fact that he's changed and doesn't like you anymore?

If he's gonna be like that, you're better off without him, anyway.

He listens to emo...wow he has a myspace. Hmmm...definately drugs. Seriously get over it. Maybe you need to find some new friends yourself and stop stalking your cousin. If he's the only one that you ever hang out with...you have a problem. I live in the middle of nowhere, yet I have lots of friends because - I DON'T STALK MY COUSIN!!! You need to stop being so clingy.

Dude, don't feel bad. I lost a lot of my friends to booze and drugs too. We used to be cool, but now all they want to do is get drunk and pop pills or get high or some ****, and I don't do that. So, if he's going to act like that, then don't even bother with him anymore, hopefully there's plenty of other people you could get along with where you live.
#26
i know exactly whats wrong with him, Fallout Boy is to blame for this Travesty. Damn you Falloutboy!

but its more than likely hes just being all teenagery and thinking hes the center of attention and stuff. but fallout boy might be to blame...
#27
I can safely say its NOT marijuana. Mary-Jane, in the general run of things, causes the adverse effect, calming people and making them more open and friendly. He might of started using some thing hard like cocaine or something of that nature, but I highly doubt it.

Hes probably just changing and growing up and wants to hang more with other friends, or he could be stressed from his father being in jail, or it could just be being a teenager.

Hes probably just being a gay lil teenager, arguin with his mum cos he thinks he should etc. Its no suprise your growing apart, every 1 does sooner or later.

He is probably doing drugs most people do at one point. Its hard to avoid even if you dont want to.

People can change alot on drugs, I grew up with a kid spent alot of time together, grew apart naturally, didnt think much of it. But as soon as he started colledge he got in to weed, wasted his time in colledge gettins stoned, he was recently kicked out for the second time for breaking in to a bar and being arrested, all he does is smoke weed and get drunk, hes 18 and wont be going any where. It happenes.

I doubt drugs are changing him from what you've said. It sounds like his interests have just changed, so either get into what he's into or find some new friends.

You could of course just tell him whenever u next get the chance that u feel a bit pissed off that he used to be a good mate and now he's ignorin u, but that would have the result of making u look like a bit of a woman

Quote by garden of grey

1. "Drug" is not a verb.

2. His music tastes are irrelevant and you are a total nerd for thinking that.

3. Same for Myspace.

4. He doesn't want to hang out with his whiny cousin, probably.

5. Weed won't make somebody angry.


/Thread



2. His music tastes are part of his interests, which are clearly vital in friends relationships.

3. Threadstarter was pointing out one of the ways which he's changed and/or gone back on things that he's said, not that the fact that he has a myspace means he's on drugs.

4. His cousin ain't whiney, just concerned.

5. Thanks Drug Doctor.

And i hate people who say /Thread, get over yourself mate

Damn. But you shouldn't blame a (relatively) harmless drug like weed for your friends being idiots.

TS, I don't know how drastic the change in your cousin is, but a lot of times, people do bounce back to old friends. One of my closest friends went on to hang out with some other retard back in the day, but he came back after realizing what a dumb c*nt the other dude was. If your cousin is hanging out with the wrong crowd and realizes it, it's most certain that he will come back to you, but if it's just him changing internally, then there's no saying that he will be close to you again.

The only explanation you found is marijuana? Boy, I've been doings drugs actively for quite some months now and I'm not a bigger asshole than I always was.

Perhaps your cousin is just an adolescent, one of the stupid ones.
