Our expert says:
Sadly, these are typical reactions to someone who is self-destructive and manipulative, and who doesn't have the guts to seriously try to improve their situation. The cocaine can be a significant part of his problems, and is an expression of his self-destructiveness --- and may also help to insulte him from good advice.
The sad fact is that it is impossible to help anyone who doesn't believe that they have a problem and who can't be bothered, therefore, to seek and sincerely work with, the right help. Just make sure that you don't get dragged down into the hole that they dug for themselves. There's no point in being supportive if that just enables them to get even more dysfunctional. That's where tough love comes in
