Drug Culture
« on: October 03, 2018, 06:24:36 pm »
What drugs have you done ?

Alcohol - a normal amount over my lifetime, never was addicted or drank too much even
Weed - used to be a lot ... cut it down to almost nothing 20 years ago
LSD - college years a handful of times ... cut due to bad trip
mushrooms - a handful of times ... cut to due bad times
speed ... once liked too much
MDMA ... 1/2 of one once, at a burn, to try a young person thing


THE END

This thread sounds like a nightmare U.S. border guard.

Be careful around Newfie Screech. One of my trips to Labrador I had to be "screeched in as a Cardinal" and I'll never for get the headache. But then I got a bit of a gut infection in India and was prescribed a healthy dose of Lomotil. Not only did it cure the "flyin' axe handles" it actually made me a cardinal for a couple of nights anyway.

Alcohol, as has been well documented.

Weed, occasionally during my early 20s. I had a friend who was fairly into it, and I would inhale when I went to her place.  I haven't used it since I moved away from Edmonton, except for once a couple of years ago when I met up with her again. We shared a joint for old times sake.  It was ...interesting, and fun at the time, but something I can do without.  Also, due to my asthma, smoking anything is pretty unpleasant for me.  Maybe after legalization they'll have some THC gummy-bears or something that I could try.

Edibles.

I'm intrigued by ****, although I have never come close to it.  I have many many friends who have had major issues with it, some have become close to becoming street people I fear.

Nobody here does/did it... or I guess your online personas are too proud to admit :)

I used pot heavily for quite a few years, then started having severe anxiety attacks while stoned which inspired me to give it up.  It wasn't hard to quit, but I did notice that my ability to think, speak and remember stuff improved considerably over the next year or so. 

Tried mushrooms once and coke once and did not find either experience worth repeating.

A close relative used an opioid for years, but seemed able to keep it moderate and stopped using it without any problem.  This person used cigarettes in the same way.   I think there is some truth to the idea that addiction is not an inevitable outcome of substance use.

My gf and I went down Maple Falls Wa. one time to visit another couple we had met while sailing in Florida. He was a full time studio musician and she also had a full time job. But when it was the weekend, and this was a long one, out came the coke. We shelled out a couple hundred bucks I think it was and joined the party. We chopped and snorted all those three days and had a great time, in large part because he had a 24 track studio for his own use right in the house. I got to bang away on the drums and strum a few chords with a headset on and even twirl the control knobs. However I don't recall any real wondrous effects from the coke other than we didn't need a lot of sleep. That was the first and last time I've ever done coke. Maybe it just wasn't that good a stuff.
On another note, I was a heavy cig. smoker up until about 16 years ago when I quit cold turkey. I have a workmate who was as heavy a smoker and also quit a number of years ago. We had a chat not so long ago and smoking came up. His claim was essentially "once a smoker, always a smoker". His idea was that even though beat the addiction successfully even for a long time it is still with you and given the right circumstances you would go buy a pack of smokes. I disagreed saying there are no circumstances under which I would do that, even including if the doctor told me I had 6 months to live. I might do some strange things but I wouldn't light up a butt. That conversation caused me to recall a comment from another workmate after we finished sharing a joint and I said I'm going outside for a cigarette when he said "I don't have an orifice in my body dirty enough to put one of those things". That's pretty much the opinion I have adopted now. I will admit though, I still like my beer, and I never let a Robby Burns day go by without a bottle of smoky single malt. I think if I hear I've got 6 months I'm on a plane back to Scotland for starters.

Huh ?  I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not but it doesn't make sense either way...

Yes- I feel that my experience was the same.  It went from being fun to a thoughtless habit and something I used to watch a game or a movie on TV.  But I started enjoying when it wore off, which told me that I wasn't enjoying it anymore.

Telling that I didn't include the one drug that has bested me, and continues to threaten my longevity.  True, I haven't had smoke in 4 months now but I agree with your friend.

My dad smoked for 3o years from when he was 12 years old and was able to convince himself in his 40s that it was a disgusting habit after cigarettes went up to 75 cents a package. He lived into his 90s and never smoked again. Or wanted to.
