    Okay, so you're making friends with crackheads...

    I've known lots of people with drug problems. Usually the ones willing to rob their own friends are pretty easy to spot.

    I'm sorry you keep befriending stealth crackheads.

    Well judging by our interaction I feel like I'd need to be on crack to want to be your friend; so maybe there's something to your predicament.

    Sorry everybody for derailing this. My apologies to the OP.

    I've heard several version of this, but this is mine.

    Visit #1
    Girlfriend's friend comes by for a visit with her significant other.
    Try to make smalltak with said SO without looking too bored.
    When they leave, complain to GF that SO was dull as hell.

    Visit #2
    Couple come by again. GF's talk about stuff, while I try to make smalltalk with SO.
    SO spots Shadowrun figurine, asks what it is.
    Find out he plays D&D.
    Half hour later we are friends.
    Girlfriends complain we talk too much with each other and not enough with them.

    19 years later.
    GF's have long since been replaced, but we still play tabletop RPG's in the same group.

    What is preventing you from moving or changing schedules?

    Since you work when others typically don't, and have enough free time to feel bored can you find time to get s job with a different schedule?

    The only big city that I'm familiar with is "The City" (San Francisco), which is extremely expensive (there's tents on the sidewalks), but has plenty of jobs available (over a quarter million people commute from outside SF to jobs in The City every day), but most of the rest of the area is metropolitan as well (like my hometown of Oakland), and getting a place with lots of roommates within commuting distance of a job is within reach of most in my area.

    What is tying you to your job and your home?

    I've found that people who live a sheltered life away from such struggles are unable to grasp that this is real. Even though they technically know that there is a different world out there... anything that strays too far from the world around them is viewed like fiction. Something to joke about and not really take seriously. I haven't experienced your struggle, but I've been close.

    Years ago, I had a roommate who started to get sketchy... and I ended up moving out and just "walking away" from the situation, even through he owed me a few hundred dollars. Good thing too, since one of his friends broke in a few months later and cleared the place out to support his drug habit.

    There was an e-mail that went around at my office at one point saying "___ no longer works here, if you see him call security immediately". Turns out he was stealing office equipment to support his coke habit.

    I know how to use a naloxone overdose kit, i.e. jamming a needle into someone to who is overdosing on opioids (heroin, fentanyl, etc)... this is mostly because of the type of people I might encounter at my job.

    It ain't no joke, and it can be really surprising when you find out that someone is an addict... doesn't have to be some guy living in the gutter. They don't all fit the stereotype.

    All of my adult friends that Iíve met recently have been through church. Iím a youngish parent (Iím 30, my kids are 6 and 4), and our priest started a young parentsí club. It was really easy to make friends in that situation because we had 3 huge things in common with everyone else (our age, that weíre parents, and that weíre Catholic).
