My son is in the modelling industry. Yesterday, he came home with two female models. I have no problem with him getting girls home. I have always tried to be open and liberal. But there was something strange about the way these girls conducted themselves. They all went to their room. Half an hour, they came out for dinner. All had this weird expression in their eyes. I am probably reading too much into this. But I' m really worried. Cases like Pramod Mahajan come to my mind. My son is a good looking fellow with a great social life and self-esteem. I don' t want to believe he' s doing drugs. Even if he does, I hope he does not become addicted to it. How do I talk to him about it? It' s quite difficult for me because I have never been the inquisitive type.

Thanks everyone for your wonderful advice. My son is doing well in his career. So I don´ t see any need for drugs right now. I think he should have told me openly. I would love to help him overcome it.

You need to check his belongings for any strange powders etc. when he´ s not there. But it´ s easier said than done. Fool your son into going for a blood test and say it´ s for something else. Inform the doctor in advance about it.

Confront him before it´ s too late. In the modelling industry, these things are quite common. But it´ s your duty as a parent to get him out of this nasty habit. You have to speak to him as a friend, and make him confess his drug habit. I would say you take him to the rehab if you´ re very sure....But first, make sure that he´ s doing drugs. It may hurt his feelings if he realizes his mom is questioning him without any basis. If he´ s doing drugs, it´ s most probably cocaine, the most common drug in the modelling industry. Watch out for frequent colds and dilated eyes. Is he restless and irritable at times? Does he rush to the bathroom in the morning? Check all the signs before you confront him.

Itz a mistake to believe that all drugs are bad. Some drugs have medicinal properties. Scientists say that drugs help to overceme depression, mental ilnesses, other mental maladies and even help to perk you up.

I wud like to know which drugs r medicinal. And even if they are, the potential harm outweighs the good. any drug should be taken under strict medical supervision. You just can´ t self-administer drugs...

I have this friend who' s really lost it. It' s easy to make out she' s been dopin' from the way she talks. She comes in, talks non-stop for hours, and then goes to sleep. Nothing she talks makes sense... I suspect it' s cocaine...But I' m not sure.

Are you sure it´ s drugs? How can you be so sure? A lot of people talk nonsense. It´ s nothing unusual. Maybe you should speak to a professional.
