I don't NEED to take drugs when I'm...

**helen****helen** Mod malarkistPosts: 9,235 Listening Ear
Prompted by Grace's comment in the legal highs thread about feeling less inclined to take drugs when in a less nothing-y place. I wonder what goes on in this place... :)

So, for the purpose of sharing and inspiring each other:

What good activities that are fun and interesting do you feel take away a need to take drugs? (When you're taking drugs as habit or just for the sake of it, rather than as a positive life choice).

And to provide even more balance:

What do you see as 'good drug taking choices' and 'bad drug' taking choices? Would be good to get a list going. :)

    Probably not helpful, but....

    Skiing really fast. The adrenaline combined with high speed and fresh air gives an amazing high.

    Actually - a really good rowing outing on a fresh day used to do the same as well.

    If I could afford it I'd be on drugs 24/7. Life is so much more fun on drugs. I don't ever *need* to be on drugs, I just enjoy it.

    Everything's so much better on drugs. School especially. In all the exams I was on drugs I did really well... :lol:

    I got 14 A-B GCSE's and was baked for all and MDMA for English :')
    Everything is far more amazing when high.

    Like the other night on bubble, 7 hours of crazy sex :')

    Spent the past hour or so writing this, it's a rap song, sums up drug use amongst me and my peers:

    All I wanna do is go and get high,
    ‘Cos shit round these ends ain’t so fly
    Nothin’ to do out on the streets
    Except avoid Bobbies on the beat

    The youth of today we ain’t so bad
    We just don’t look up to mum and dad
    They don’t know what livin’s like
    When every day comes a new fight

    School keeps us busy till 3.15
    But after that the streets ain’t clean
    We go knockin’ from door to door
    Until we find somewhere to score

    And we ain’t fussy ‘bout what we take
    It’s cut with glass make no mistake
    The drugs we get they make us ill
    But hospitals a bit of a thrill

    Out on the streets it’s cold at night
    But hospital is warm and nice
    Drugs delivered to your bed
    By friends who bun up more weed than Ted

    There’s no hope for all our futures
    We’ll always be dirty drug users
    Time to wake up and face the facts
    Some of us gonna end up on smack

    Now I’m not saying it’s a decent path
    Life ain’t perfect but we live like that
    The youth of today we ain’t so privileged
    Shut down shops that are closed-for-business

    Failing schools and older teachers
    And what’s with all these Academies
    Less regulation about education
    No chance in hell that we’ll achieve

    Nothing to do around my area
    Sniff some kat to make it bearable
    Little bit of ket to take the edge off
    Bun up some weed and that’s the end of


    Our chance at gaining any good grades
    We’ll grow up and have kids
    With no decent wage
    The whole fucked cycle starts again

    Governments they cut the funding
    For the youth clubs and young offenders
    But they put more money in
    To prosecution and punishing

    There’s no chance we’re gonna act right
    When there’s nothin’ to do but drugs and fight
    For once prime minister hear our cries
    Change our towns and change our lives!

    Really good idea for a thread Helen!
    I personally don't really take drugs at all anymore, mostly because I have mental health problems and feel the effects and after-affects very strongly!
    it is something that was very difficult to replace ( especially in the beginning ) for me personally;

    good live music (live bands as opposed to DJs - that makes me want drugs)
    doing something completely new and out of my comfort zone e.g I did a Samba class that almost killed me but it was very fun!
    second what scary monster said - skiing is a great one! I imagine other extreme type sports too :)

    If you can't enjoy anything without being high then you do need them....

    Just sayin

    At no point did I say I can't enjoy anything sober. I do enjoy things sober. I just enjoy being on drugs too.

    I think, someone is just a little bit involve in taking drugs, and really wants to get out of it, then he should try to participate in some other healthy activities, and some outdoors games which he could switch to when feel like taking drugs.
