Unhappy My Parents Think Im Doing Drugs. HELP . - September 16th 2012, 04:14 AM

I have been Clinically Depressed for about a year now. I was diagnosed about 2 months ago , and put on anti-depressants. I have been accused of smoking pot in the past. So i just stopped hanging around people. I figured, if i stop hanging around people, maybe they will believe me. But ive been so lonely, so i started getting back with my friends and ive started hanging around certain friends again. My friend has smoked pot ONCE. and another lives in the trailer park. So, now my parents all of a sudden think im doing drugs. getting high, you know. they things druggies would do. JUST because ive started using perfume and sprayed my incents because , my brother CLAIMED my room stunk. so i sprayed stuff in it. And now my parents are thinking im doing drugs! What do I do? Im NOT doing drugs. I dont want to do drugs. I need help. Do i do what i did last time? stop hanging around people? like What do they want me to do? Im telling them the truth but theyre so set on the fact that "im doing drugs" . which im not. so someone. please give me advice. How do i make my parents believe me?

Sorry its so long.
Responses are appreciated.

Hi Ellie,

when I was living with grandparents they thought the same thing for a while (because I had no money, I was spending it on food), but eventually they realised I wasn't.

Anyway - simplest solution - offer to undergo a simple drug screening test, such as a urine or blood test. The results will come back clean, and your parents (and yourself) will have peace of mind. It's the only 100% thing I can think of.

I agree with Jess. Volunteer to take a random drug test where they pick the day so that they don't think you'll just not do drugs that day so it'll come up clean. I'm not accusing you of being on drugs.

I also agree with Jess.

May I just say, I think it's lousy of your parents to accuse you of being on drugs with no conclusive evidence.

I agree with Jess as well.
If your parents feel you're doing drugs, agree to do a random drug test. It'll put their minds at ease. That's really the only way they will be 100% sure. Afterward, I would suggest sitting down with your parents and talking it out with them.

Although a drugs test is a great idea, and would be 100% conclusive, I think it's probably worth trying to talk to your parents first.
I'm that they'd accuse you of that, although, naturally, they worry.

However, if you can get them to believe you without a drugs test, that's probably a better sign of communication, etc.
