what your friend is doing is completely incorrect. as taking spasmo proxyvon without any symptoms is not right. please ask your friend to visit a counsellor who will help him get rid of his habit.

Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Your friend is moving from one addiction to another .If you need to leave a addiction you can do it on you own will with help from a doctor for withdrawal symptoms.Tel him to contact a rehabilitation center where he will get guidance and support to leave his addiction.Please tell him that visiting the rehabilitation center will help him if he is ready to co-operate & by his own will he can come out of this drug habit.
Thanks
