What are your reasons for taking drugs?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
I go through phases myself and I feel it is a combination of reasons.
Firstly, I wanted to know what all the fuss was about so I started with cannabis and then it was acid and then speed and then e's then coke. THis is over a period of about ten years though, i might add. COke has to be the best. That is saved only for special occassions as most of my recreational use is. I can go months at a time without having anything and that is the way that i like it because i then really enjoy what i do. THere are times that I get the need to have something to get me through and when i feel that i might be losing control of it then i stop. You might not be interested to hear about what I do but I thought that i would share it with you anyway and I am hoping that you will tell me too..

    I'm not into drugs, but I do drink sometimes, especially if I'm tense or depressed because I've got no one to talk to.

    I started with cannabis at 13, I spent a lot of time at my cousins house and spent every weekend there and went round in the week, my cousins smoked it, they never pressured me into it but I asked them if I could try it. I then started smoking it with my mates coz I liked it, since then I jsut got in with poeple who smoked it as well and a few of us just graduated into trying other things because of curiosity. Over the past year though I have been smoking weed every day just to keep myself feeling normal but I haven't had a spliff for a month now since I gave up taking E's. I woul dlike to stop taking everything altogether and see what feeling normal is like again.

    I know that the times I have gone on mad binges with drugs always seem to be the times I have been having a hard time at home and with family problems and I also used to drink a lot as well. Now I just have a beer when I go to town at weekends mind you that is sometimes friday saturday and sunday.

    Hmm good question tinker. As for myself, I've always like to have a good time, party 'er up and that so I guess its been a kind of natural progression - from drinking, to green, to E, coke, acid etc. Mine also started out of a liking for trying new things. Mostly I just do pills now and smoke some spliffs. My various reasons are that I like to dose and go clubbing a lot, like Daze I get bored of drinking, sometimes I use it as a treat for myself, or like tinker on special occassions, and sometimes when I'm stressed and need to blow off some steam <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Have you been to 'home' trancegrrl?
    I am supposed to be going there soon and seeing as though you live in that London, i thought that you might be able to give me an opinion. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Tinker- yeah I've been to home. Its really big and nice inside but I don't really go in for that Leicester sq. type club. Too many posers, and not there for the music. But who knows you might like it...

    I always knew Id take drugs, my brother did and when we learnt about the dangers in school all it did was make me want em. I had my first joint at about 13, but Ive never been a real smoker. I found it got me really down. I was a heavy drinker at 13 too, I used to take drink to school in my flask and get pissed at break! The next thing I tried was Base (speed) when I was 14. I dunno why I done it, I think I got interested in it coz I heard it suppressed your appetite and I had an eating problem at the time. Before I knew it I was on it everyday. I tried my first trip at about 15 and in the same night I smoked magic mushrooms and took an E (all of which I never done before!). It was the worst night of my life as I had a really bad trip which lasted forever due to the E I took with it. I think I was about 16 when I first done coke. I didnt get the chance to do it that often at first as I couldnt afford it but soon I replaced my speed addiction for a coke and crack problem. So really u could say that from day one I went on drugs pretty heavy!
    What started off as a social thing and a bit of fun ended up really shitty for me and I pray to god Ill never get like that again. I have an addictive personality and tend to take everything to extremes but I put my past drug use down to how unhappy I was. I was very depressed and had a lot of problem when I was younger that started to really affect me when I got to about 14.
    Thankfully, now Im totally off them, just as well because I am pregnant. It was the ptregnancy that got me totally off drugs but I had been better for a while before as I had help through hospital.
    Even though I messed up a lot of my lif3e through drugs, I dont think they r all bad. A lot of the time I wonder if Id even b here now had it not been for drugs. They made me happy at some of the shittiest times. But, unfortunatly they arnt the answer.
    I hope that I can stay off them, everyday wise, after the baby and Im sure I will but there is always that bit of me thats dying to go get high!
    Anyway, just thought Id share that with u all... dont think Ive ever actually got that lot out in the open!

    I smoke pot to help me adjust to
    incarceration for smoking pot.

    I smoke pot because it makes me popular with dogs at airports.

    I smoke pot to appreciate the rationality of religion and the chaos of logic.

    I smoke pot because it makes normal stupid things seem profoundly stupid.

    I smoke pot because it makes my beret and bow-tie seem fashionable.

    I smoke pot when I need quick and novel ideas to convince linear thinkers that I have been working.

    I smoke pot so my parents won’t know I have been smoking tobacco in my room.

    I smoke pot because my innate rhythms were destroyed by W.A.S.P.s.

    I smoke pot to become one with the wonders of nature and to stimulate my appetite for eating them.

    I smoke pot to create employment for people without otherwise marketable skills.

    I smoke pot to impress criminals and tobacco smokers as we freeze our asses off during winter smoke breaks.

    Lolly i totally click with you above about all that stuff, thinking would you be here now if it werent for drugs, i often think that too as there have been many times when ive just wanted to slit my throat open.

    I always knew id take drugs too even though i always used to say no id never touch that, a week later i was always doing it, trying to kid yourself doesnt work!

    And im sure a certain friend of mine will agree with you as well theres always a part of you thats dying to get high on whatever you like getting high off.

    Ive been dying for something today but luckily i didnt give in to it but iwas about a millimetre away from it.

    Glad someone out there can relate to me lol <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif">. Im finding it increasingly difficult to stay off...especially over this xmas period. Its a bloody joke, infact I think its the not being able to do anything thats been getting me down a bit lately.
    I slipped up three times during this pregnacy, and Ive never felt so bad in my life. It was right at the begginnning, and thankfully dont seem to have had any devastating effects, but I cant forgive myself. It was a really selfish thing to do and Im well aware of that.Then again, I look at what I was doin before I got pregnant (something everyday!) and I think Im doin a pretty fab job at staying off.
    Ive now decided not to go out, as the temptations too much and I just have a shit nite. Its sad to admit, but I cant go out and have fun without being on something.
    Oh well, if I get through xmas and new year (which I no I will) Ill no I can do anything!!!!

    Why don't you download Yahoo, then when you need instant support, there's a good likelyhood that there will be someone online to talk to.

    Shortcut to Bliss

    I mean for me, that's it. I suppose i could meditate in a cave or get knee deep in religion or something like that. Drugs are a window to feeling and seeing life beyond/deeper/differently than I am able to in my 'normal' state.
    bliss is awesome - big fan of bliss.
