I have this friend stephanie, she called me today out of the blue, saying how much she loves me, and i asked her if everythign was okay and what was she on, and she said ecstasy. I talked to her for a long time about her parents getting seperated and how they fight about her and say she's an accident and a failure and her dad hits her. on top of that, her boyfriend is abusive and in a gang and doesnt care. I know some people say this kind of thing for attention, but she's serious, she took 12 tabs of X total, and she wants to die. i convinced her to throw up, but she wont go to the hospital and i feel so hopeless. i told her i loved her and that people cared about her, and that she was a good person, but she wouldnt believe me.
please PLEASE help quickly

you can overdose on E very easily. 12 tabs can definitely do some serious damage. if she won't go to the hospital, you could call the police, let them know you have a friend threatening suicide and is trying to overdose on drugs. They can take her (possibly forcibly) to the hospital.

She will be mad at you, but in the long run, she will either forgive you for saving her life, or at least you will be able to rest assured she didn't die because you took some steps to get her help.

Summertime, and the living's easy...

Get her to the hospital immidiatly. At that dosage level, ectasy can do serious nervous system damage, even resulting in failure, depending on the person.
