Your threat to cut him off based on your subjective, unprofessional opinion of his state may have motivated him to seek out and obtain another source, but I doubt you got him hooked, as it were.
I hate to boil it down so but for brevity's sake, that energy, that attention was going to go somewhere.
Does he smoke cigarettes?
Does he binge drink?
You may have exposed him to that vector at this particular point in time,
But were he left to his own devices and had whatever led him to develop a problem not been addressed, he likely would have found amphetamine eventually, were it destined to be his undoing. Otherwise, it may have been a different drug, maybe an opioid or tobacco, as I suggested. Maybe not a drug at all, maybe something like getting into fights, sexual promiscuity or assault, porn, dangerous driving, video games, food. So many from which to choose.
Rates of drug use have gone up globally yet rates of problem use remain relatively constant. It would seem that only a certain subsegment of the population is prone to or will develop a drug problem. This, to me, indicates underlying issues that unaddressed, lead to self-medication and resultant overmedication, tolerance accumulation, dependency, and addiction.
Though, after saying all that, what you've described to me and everyone else here does not sound like addiction - unless your benders are compulsive, and beyond your control.
Your friend simply found himself a plug 'cause you weren't bein' cool, bruh. There's no reason for alarmism.
