O.k i'm not sure how many of you read it, but i'm gonna copy it out for you all, mindless especially buts its intresting for all. Its also worth considering this is the most comprehensive study of drug use in the UK, government officials use this to set policies <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

Just so i don't piss of mixmag - http://www.mixmag.net

The average clubber is

Probably male (57%), heterosexual, aged 24, work full time and has studied for a levels and a degree.

Goes clubbing just over once a week

Pays an average of £4.12 per E and usually buys 12 at a time. Pays £43.75 for a gram of coke and buy an average of 1.4 grams at a time.

The first drug ever used was weed aged 15, the first E came along at 19 yrs 9 months. Trying the first fag aged 14.

You take 3.4 e's in a session, the most pills you've taken in a session is 8 and a half.

If you've taken ketamine (40%) you pay £25 a gram or £4 a pill, you mix it with E's and alcohol but not alot else

You go for a drink at least twice a week and have an average of 5 drinks

You've taken more than four e's in one session in the last year because you wanted a better night and to stay out longer.

97% have tried both pills and weed, only 11% heroin

You like house music with the odd bit of progression, trance and hard house. YOu hate hip hop, r'n'b and garage

You've snorted mdma but don't put e's up your bum. You've never injected drugs but knoe someone who has.

50% had unplanned sex on alcohol, 15 % on coke, 33 % on ecstatsy

You've taken E for four and a half years, at an average of 4.29 a month. You smoke Weed every other day

All these are averages, its scary to see how similar i am to the norm in alot of respects

********************************************

Top ten most popular drugs

1) Ecstasy
2) Cannabis
3) Cocaine
4) Speed
5) Poppers
6) Ketamine
7) Benzodiazapines
8) Acid
9) Herbal Highs
10=) GHB
10=) Magic Mushrooms

All ten have seen a decrease in use except speed in the last year, ecstasy and cannabis are way out in front in percentage terms.


In 1999 people paid £7 on average for a pill, £9 in 2000 and £4 in 2001

People are taking far less pills in one session now possibly becasue of a spate of deaths and been a mess is now frowned upon.

The average clubber buys 12 pills at a time usually to share with mates or to last a month

14% of respondants had a relationship break up because of E

30 % have had a nose bleed after snorting coke

10 % have had disciplinary problems at work or college after taking E

48 % believe there performance to of been impaired because of E taking

94 % have had sex in the last year, 90 % use contraceptive, 1 % got pregnant on E, 34 % had unprotected sex on E

*********************************************

Thats the best of what was found, bare in mind its a survey of clubbers not the general public <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Cool! The 'average' description is very close to the real me, except I'm not sure if I am 100% heterosexual <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    So true I hate hip hop and garage as well..

    By the way we shouldn't stereotype drug users, they come from everywhere really.
