I smoked some weedo a few months back.
It was interesting.
I don't think I'll do it again..I just get this clostrophobic feeling.
But at the moment its...interesting.

I remember the night...
I had had a good bit to drink as well combined with the drug. I was messed up!!
I was in a car with my friend and it was just me and her and I kept asking her if she had picked people up and why were there people talking and laughing in the back seat?!?! I learned my lesson.

Recently one of pals took some afedrin and smoked pot. Suffice to say it was not a pretty scene.

As for hard drugs...I've never touched it and never will.
A very good friend of mine and a cousin recently checked himself into a rehab center. Thats tough.
its tough on the friends and really tough on the family.

No good comes out of hard drugs...or any drugs really, I suppose.

My worst qualm with weed is not that it will kill you but that it tends to make people lazy and unmotivated - the "pot-heads" anyway. It really lessens your intelligence oer a long span of time.

Its weird what humans do to themselves to feel different. We're the only animals to do that I's say!

Whats really scary is that a couple of my friends have done E a few times.

I don't think people realize the awful effects that can have on a person.
Once saw a picture of a girl on E whose brain looked like chedder cheese...or whatever cheese has all those hole in it.
The holes went all the way through!!

After the first time, even, there is a scar left on the brain and if your planning on going into the airforce you won't get in, even if you took it years ago!

Well I've never tried any drugs, except Marijuana which I don't consider a drug. It's a beautiful thing, special thing. Some of my friends have gone high to school, I did it once and did not really enjoy it. You shouldn't have to carry out responsibilities while high. Its boring. But being in public while high is obviously great, you'll meet people you'll never meet and you'll do things you'll never do. And laugh.

But, eh, enough. To answer your question, no.

Saw my friend last party, took weed. Then the other did so and so everybody did.

I don't have problems with weed, noone has here, except a few. If you don't want some, its ok (some jack-ass will probably response "Cool, I'll have more").

Don't touch heavy drugs though, but weed is ok once in a while, to relax or get cool music ideas.

I dont think pot is that bad at all.. its not addicting .. ( I'm sure people will argue that but I believe its a fact. ) and can be enjoyed occasionally without any more damage than lets say alcohol. In fact I dont really consider it a drug.. its herbal People that have never smoked it probly wouldnt understand.

I've tried a couple other drugs in my younger years and lets just say I wont do any of them again. Hard drugs fuck you up big time. I've witnessed friends on speed and other drugs and it really messes them up. Plus I found a natural high and it feels great. There's no point in taking drugs.

Interesting thread...

I have seen people on drugs many times however never when I have been straight. I smoke pot on occasions and I dont see anything wrong with it. It is really not too different from another drug, alcohol. I mean, its effects are different but really, its very tame as far as drugs go. I dont know how they (we) appear to others really when we do. I dont really go out and socialise with others when I do it so I really dont know....id much rather prefer to stay somewhere and chill

Sicy, pot IS addictive though. I know people who are addicted to it and cant get off it. They need it to function properly and get very annoyed and agressive when they dont have any.

Technically pot is a drug because it contains THC which floods to your brain and alters the senses.

BUT it is a herbal drug(if its not laced )

Like I said,
I'e no problem with pot, and I would not rule out never doing it again.
But I've seen some friends get so addicted to pot that they become unmotivated, uncaring, and lazy.
You know them...we all do...those potheads who spend all their money of weed and spend all their hours smoking up in a run down apartment.

heh...well maybe all this is a little extreme!

Been there, done that, clawed my way out of it again

It's not big, and it's not clever. But by the same token I'm not afraid to say that I've been there and I've done that. And you're all completely right - there is nothing cool about it at all.

However, I would like to distance myself somewhat from the 'social' takers. The people, who for whatever reason, decide that a high on a night out is worth gambling your life for. And, of course, not just your life, but the life of your families, friends and relatives. But if that's what floats your boat, then feel free. If your life is worth so little, then you're right, one more drink can't hurt, and one little pill isn't dangerous. Waking up in a gutter is fun, and realising that you don't even know your name *what a thrill!!! I don't think.

I was lucky. I had a problem, which is surprising, considering I'm young. But nearly 2 years ago, I developed a habit when things got too bad for me. I'm a depressive, and sometimes everybody needs a crutch. That was mine. Anything, you name is, alcohol, dope, drugs, painkillers. Anything to stop the sort of hurting that I had inside. And that's one 'good' thing about something like that. You end up so incapable that most of the time people will just tidy up around you and put you to bed. One time I wasn't so lucky, and it was a 'short' habit of about 4 months, but one time someone didn't pick me up afterwards.

I have an addictive personality, and habits grow on me. And suddenly, when I thought I was fun and cool to be around, I had to look at where I'd got myself. No fun Suddenly I had to look at all the people I'd ever been rude to, upset, made passes at, and without my crutch. And much fun as it was (I don't think) I got through it. :grin:

And there is nothing wrong with being afraid of people who are out of it. They're unpredictable, and can be dangerous. But on the other hand, please remember that sometimes they're just crying out for help in a language that nobody understands.

I'm 'clean' now. I drink in moderation and smoke. Moderation is a difficult thing to handle, but it's possible. And before you all go running scared, don't worry, I'm not a scary mofo with a broken family and an abusive personality. I'm just someone who got lost for a while.

Now, who's for a lemon tart? :lemon:

pot addictive? yes and no

Well, yes and no. Pot does not cause your brain to form a chemical or physical addiction as does cocaine, speed, heroin, etc etc. Pot can cause some people to become psychologically addicted as they remember the good times they had while high and want more, associating good times with being high. But its not a phsyical or chemical addiction per se.

You can break the psychological addiction to pot very easily by just quitting for a couple of weeks. The first couple of days you'll probably be crabby, but then as time goes on you are more than likely to experience good times that did not involved being high, and you go, hey, I guess I dont have to be high to enjoy myself.

Cocaine and heroin etc are way different. Just try going cold turkey off those drugs, its near impossible.

Then again, I could be wrong, thats happened before...rarely..LOL...

Yeah.. pretty much. I think it also depends on the person too. Some people have more addicting personalities than others. I see it more like an occasional treat rather than something I need cuz I definatly can live without it. By the way not that its anyone's business but I've smoked for about 10 years and I'm not stupid nor do I have a bad memory and all that other garbage they say about people who smoke.

And Sula.. lol
