    a friend that ive known for the past 4 years and i are somewhat dating as of now.
    but ever since shes moved shes had a marijuana and pill problem.

    i talk to her alot about it and she said she would quit taking the pills but wont stop smoking,im somewhat ok with that but how can i help her to STAY off pills?

    Try to get her involved in any rehab or NA programs in your area.

    What kinda pills? E? Prescriptions? Not that being addicted to one is better than the other, but its important info and helps to understand the situation.....

    She doesn't want anyone to think she has a problem?

    Well, she does. She's going to have to accept that and get over worrying about how she is perceived if she wants to make things any better.

    Don't try to lecture her. She knows that she has a problem. Lecturing her will make her hide it from you and or be distant. But be supportive of her recovery - it's a fine line to walk.

    Yeah don't try to be captain save a 'ho, she'll just resent you for it. Just be aloof and chill, realistically she will only quit when SHE wants to, so if you have a problem with her using pills, you should just move on.

    She can talk all she wants, but she really won't quit untill she is ready. That is very important for you to understand. Watch out for her doing them behind your back, not that you couldn't tell but some people can hide that kind of thing really well.

    Why do you care if she is doing pills?

    O.K., I was just wondering cause you said you were kinda allright with her being a pothead. So I thought maybe she's really on the pills to the point where it makes her behavior drastically different than just pothead behavior, or maybe you just don't aprove of her doing pills for whatever reason. Which is it, cause some people get addicted to it and need rehad to get off. How many totem poles can she eat an still function, 2,4,10,20 in a day?
