why spend youre life condeming the actions of others when you have a whole life of youre own to worry about!
That's a really great attitude to take. A lot of people who don't take drugs or never have are usually very closed minded. Obviously you're not.

Personally the type that annoy me most are the type to condemn all drug users and then go and get sh1tfaced on booze at the weekend.

Alcohol is a harsh and cold drug if abused IMO, and if it was invented today then it would most certainly be a banned substance.

I have an unfortunate arthritis called Ankylosing Spondylitis which means I'm on pills for the rest of my life as pain management (in particular Diclofenac Sodium), if I don't take them I am in a lot of pain for most of the day and couldn't work full-time so I guess I'm addicted. Apparently people who don't need them get addicted to these although I strugglle to see how they would get a high (think Chandler from friends was one)

Before anyone suggests other remedies for my condition, my wife is a senior physiotherapist and lecturer at Hallam University and occassionally does accupuncture on me, but the otrher new age stuff does absolutely f*** all.

I have in the past tried Weed mostly it was a couple of time in my late teen and early twenties - just made me more chilled. Also, got caught my first time smoking a small amount in a local public area in the town centre, this was when I was 18/19 and I was with a few friends, it was broad day light we didn't seem to care and didn't try to hide it. So, an undercover police bod approaches us, and someone passes me the little bag and we got bundled off into the little police van off to the station for a caution :oops: and ticking off.

It was me that said I'd take the brunt of it I was older than everyone by a year or so. Am not sure, if a caution is down on record, but I was young and dumb. I thought that would put me off, but it didn't my life at the time didn't seem to have a direction and nothing seemed to bother me. I have told my parents many years later and I did try it again in different circumstances more socially, but I think it was 8 years since I have smoked it.

Also when I was 22, tried 'Poppers' in a night club with my mates - gives you a blood rush and feel a bit dizzy - didn't feel guilty as you can buy it from behind the bar for £5. On a different note, have seen and heard a couple of mates do Coke and I have stepped back and thought it wasn't for me and am glad that I could refuse. I have fell out with a friend in the past who was always on the booze and drugs - just wrecked a good friendship. I like a drink with good friends and I'd never drink alone, I think you feel even more lonelier. Well confession over with :oops:. When I think back, all this kind of stuff happened when I was younger and I don't think I'd try anything more now, just like having a drink.

I know of someone who had a similar condition and was sick and tired of having to take pills that didn't fully alleviate the pain. There's a natural alternative and legal herb called Kratom which really helped ease the pain but you'd have to take it every day the same as your pills so in that regard it won't make much difference.

Cannabis is often used too for arthritic conditions by many patients.

Even Pacman pops pills :o

No, seriously, I only do E's now and then. Certain big night events, usually at Warehouse Project, Sankeys or Creamfields.

The majority of the time, it just keeps me all relaxed, happy, and in a totally loved up mood.

That's what I hate about alcohol.

Not sure if I have my figures correct, but read a report recently about 80% of weekend A+E patients being treated for alcohol related injuries (caused by accidents + fights).

You can get a snapshot of how badly alcohol affects people just by watching a number of "reality" shows, such as street wars.

I mean, I enjoy a drink as much as the next guy, but can't stand hang overs. Would rather have a come down any day of the week.

For me it's like a massively deep meditation session which opens my soul and mind up. Kinda shows me what the important things are in life, love, friendship, brotherhood etc.

I also think the shrooms are there for a reason, it's like a guide and teacher for humankind IMO.

I know how corny all that sounds haha, can't help it though! :P

Can I ask those that have taken drugs, what prompted them to do so in the first place? Was it peer pressure, pressures from other things like work etc.

what dose it matter

most things are done through peer pressure! the films we watch,the food we eat, the cloth's we wear...even the games we play...we look around see what others are doing,if it takes our fancy we give it a go then decide for ourselves!

me...i'm an indevidual, just like everybody else!
