interesting topic. i've done it all. currently i just drink and smoke bud. but i wouldn't trade my experience for anything. i have a good job (same job for the last 6 years) and get along with my family great. i'm happy whit where i'm at in life. i have no health problems from heavy drug use... most people who do drugs are weak minded and fall easily into the trap. personally i think, if done in moderation, drugs can be really fun.
There is no need for drugs. When i say drugs i mean of course counscious altering drugs. Medicine is obviously needed there is no doubt about that. but illegal drugs do nothing but destroy the body and eat away the soul. I lost 3 years of my life to drugs so i know exactly what they do. Alchohol is also somthing that shouldnt be. Its more deadly and addictive than weed but its here and here to stay so theres nothing we can do except not drink it and thats not gonna happen

i gained more prospective form drug use... you lost 3 years of your life because you were careless. drugs are not for everyday use... or even every weekend use. but every now and again... they can be loads of fun. and some people cannot do that... just like some people cannot drink... if someone cannot handle drinking, don't tell me i shouldn't drink.
I've done some crazy stuff in my life and I can't account for a good proportion of my youth due to class A substances. But that doesn't mean I was weak minded, I just chose to do that at that time and if I'm honest I had a bloody good time and felt like you'll never be able to on a few glasses of sherry.
But in the end I chose to stop playing that game because life was passing me by without nothing else good happening for me.
I don't regret those days, I still have a good friend left from that time who also went clean and we sometimes have a good laugh about what we got up to. But I would never tell anyone to try recreational drugs cus not everyone has the will power to say "thats enough".
And thats whats important IMO, knowing when to stop is vital to survival.
yup... i hear ya. the thing i don't like is when someone says you shouldn't do it... example... my dad has a drinking problem so i think that no one should drink or alcohol should be illegal... no... your dad shouldn't drink. i don't have a problem.
but yeah... i physically can't handle the hangovers... so i just say no.
ok - i'm not sayin' that you guys who have done drugs are bad or wrong in any way. i totally understand that everyone is different & their ability to handle certain substances varies. i'm just saying that it can be very dangerous, and should not be taken lightly. some drugs can cause permanent damage. on the other hand, i kinda like some of Bhang's profile. that's an interesting quote by Abraham Lincoln. i'm not so much in favour of making various substances illegal, as i am in favour of enforcing age requirements. ya know, you have to be of a certain age to operate a motor vehicle, and you have to have a license to do so. i think we should have licenses for alcohol, mj, etc. that way, you could be tested before you get your license (physically & mentally) - to prove that you are mature enough to handle it, as well as not physically/emotionally prone to addictive tendancies. might be interesting.
