Have "illicit drugs" had a positive effect on your life?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Are you glad you've done drugs.

I am.

None of my none druggy friends can get this, I've toned down incredibly, v.rarely do pills, charlie only if it's offered, brown only twice in my life, only shrooms and weed remain constants, but i don't regret any of it, I actaully think it's been positive, I've experienced mad things, met cool people, realised such important stuff because of them. Obviously their have been lows, but i don't think i have an addictive personality, so luckily none have ever trapped me, not even queen nicotine.

What about others? Has your experience been positive, negative, both? If you could turn back time would you never take any, i know i wouldn't, but some friends would.

    Hmm, I dont really know.

    Because most people use them during periods when they are really finding out about themselves its always hard to seperate the drug use and what would happen anyway.

    There are occasional experiences which werent all that pleasant, but then there is the adage about there being 'no such thing as a bad trip'. Which I can sort of agree with, looking into the void is sometimes a good thing.

    Yes, drugs have had a positive effect on my life, though they may have had a negative effect on my health.
    I have no regrets other than smoking.

    same as what skive has said. really wish i ahdn't started smoking consideing how much i enjoy it, which is the ahrd bit of quitting.

    i think doing pills definately brought me out of my shell and let me see that i could be mroe like how i wanted to be. that if i could be mroe open/outgoing etc. on drugs then i could do the same without them. and jsut amde me think in a different way generally.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru

    same here, i have fucked up lungs and i'm not as fit asi used to be but every time i close my eyes and think of the mad drug parties, the socialising, the deep insights into life and other shit you get i just feel so glad i've done them, only drawback really is hearing your parents and other anti-drug people saying shit to you and you sometimes feel guilty but fuck them.

    what ive done has shaped who I am today, im sure, but I wish I didnt get into it as heavily as I did.
    I became a person I didnt like for a while. I was ashamed of myself but I am proud of myself for getting through it, especially when I see people like ex dealers and I know theyre still doing the same old things I gave up years ago, and they have no power over me anymore.
    I guess it gives me an interesting history which could be seen as a good thing, but its not something id exactly tell the grandchildren.
    If I hadnt got so heavily into it, then yes, there were loads of positives and some bits i wouldnt have changed for the world.

    I'm definately glad of the drugs i've done. When I was doing pills i was so much more of a relaxed person, and although i'm a little bit less now i'm still much less than i ever was.
    My confidence has also increased considerably (drugs are not the only factor their but i coudln't deny that they helped) and it's given me a wider and better outlook on life.

    I just wish so many people didn't look down on drug users so much.

    Is the difference in the way they are made or the purity? There are two ways of making them arent there?

    How come?
    I've never done it, it's never really appealed to me and i wouldn't know where to get it if it did.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    same here. then again i know i ahve an addictive personality at times so probably a good thing it's never appealed.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I know of at least two places I could buy it, but I cant say I'd want to buy it there and I dont really fancy trying it.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Crack has never appealed to me, the people i know own it are all 2 fucked up, and crazy, not appealing at all. Heroin yes, but not crack.

    How come heroin? Although I do see crack as worse, i think i'd be more likely to try it.

    I have a mate who tried junk a few weeks back, I thought he'd fall in love with it, but he was quite underwhelmed.

    Well, i'd seen people both on crack and heroin before. Crack, it was madness, but didn't look like in a fun way, heroin seemed mellow and relaxing, and i liked that. So i tried heroin and like it a lot, an amazing drug.

    That's strange, it was love at first sight for me.

    Crack is the worst drug I've ever used. It took a hold of my life in a very big way, I wouldn't wish a crack addiction on anyone.

    Well done for fighting back though, i know it's an almost impossible addiction to conquer.

    Thankyou.

    It was a really low point in my life, It took control of every part of me and it wasn't until I got sectioned by my family that I got the help I so desperately needed.

    Now at 20 the only thing I'll touch at most is weed, drugs just don't play any part in my life the way they used to.

    I feel so much better for it :D

    (just got the smoking and drink to get by now!)

    do be careful my dear ...you sound like me many moons ago!
    i did crack a few times when i was a smack head ...ruined my smack comfort ...agitated me ...didn't impress me.
    did take my breath away and almost paralyzed my breathing one time and my head was in an elavator with my body left behind but ...far to short a buzz for me.

    Well it was really intense, but not in a nice way. I hit it up, and it felt like someone had whacked me round the head. Then I sat there feeling really horribly anxious and nervous. Like speedy but unpleasant and aggressive.

    Maybe its just me.
