Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. Yes, cocaine has a distinctive smell and you may be able to detect it in your body odor. I also believe that you can get him to do a drug test to prove that he is not doing drugs. I hope you have him consult a psychiatrist if his testing turns up substances in his urine or serum. You may be saving his life by doing so as dependence on such drugs may be lethal.

I hope this helps. Take good care of yourself and have a lovely day!
