You may have a friend in serious trouble or even in dangeróand
that friend may refuse to tell anyone else what's going on. If you think the
risk is high, you should go by yourself to tell someone else immediately. You
should do this even if your friend has asked you not to, and even if you have
promised not to tell.
This does not mean you have betrayed your friend. It's true
that you may be jeopardizing the friendship, because your friend may feel you
have broken a very serious promise. But even if your friend doesn't understand,
you'll know you did what you had to do out of caring and love. You'll know that
you had to tell someone else in order to protect your friend's health and
Find someone you trust or go to a teacher, a clinic, or a health care professional, and explain
your friend's situation. The topics on this website may help you figure out
what you need to do.
You might lose the friendshipóbut you may be saving your friend's life.
