clarificiation: i personally prefer the expanded definition of "drugs" to include any external mood altering stimulant, such as food or TV. but for the purpose of this discussion we shall stay with the common definition of "illegal narcotics".

YOU SHOUDL VOTE FOR YOUR ILLEGAL NARCOTIC OF CHOICE IN THE POLL ABOVE. as in, if only one was made available to you for the rest of your life, what would it be.

(i did not include weed because it's not in the class of the others. and it's safe to say that 90% of dissensians smoke on the regular so of course it will win. and for the same reason, alcohol and coffee is excluded.)

is there a way to edit the poll? i'd like to include "all of the above" and "none" if possible, as well as add "/Meth" to Cocain and "/Opiates" to Heroin...

I'm not voting if you have to choose between h and acid

There's no actual question. Is it meant to be "what do you use most often?", or "what's your favourite?" or what?

The answers to those two questions are very different.

i don't mean to be a bit of a downer here but this thread seems a wee bit uncritical!

also what's it all about? are we supposed to vote for our favourite drug? (ok now i'm being deliberatly stupid)

i really dislike drugs and wish i'd never bothered the bloody things. haven't touched em since october 1996 and would never go back.

Also: Aren't they always just profoundly dissapointing (both too much and yet... not enough)? Maybe I've not taken the right/wrong ones?

i started off by just blowing a gasket on them. i found that helped! i suppose the alcoholics equivalent of finding yourself in a gutter.

people seem to take drugs quite sensibly on the whole, so nowadays there are loads of people near forty still managing habits! that's a shame i reckon. drugs are for ruining one's youth with i reckon ;)

for a while (like 2-3 years?) it's just depressing. but after a bit you cease to factor them into your "pleasure choices". it simply wouldn't occur to me to use them.

i do drink a wee bit (usually about a pint of beer a week) but i don't drink tea or coffee. but i ought to reitaerate it simply isnt a big deal to me nowadays-or even something i ever think about. and i'm certainly not on some righteous tee-total trip.....

no, i didn't think you probably were--genuinely curious because I've seen people come and go out of medical detox with insanely high recidivism levels.

I have had people erase all the numbers on my phone, and I'm like "uuhh I have those memorized."

Hopeless!

Yeah, bit disappointing there's no "none" option.
thats right sonny, now go out there and take them whether you like it or not. in fact whatever the poll chooses, thats your choice too. do not wait to finish work, do not pass go and give that nice man there on the corner your 200 quid.

who said this had to be balanced?

I should've known with so many Brits MDMA would win.

Oh well.

Drugs don't do me anymore for the most part these days. I just hardly ever seem to get any or be around the right people. It's no great loss I suppose, the doors of perception feel just fine, but I would like to do it more often again I think. I do love weed though and from time to time will binge out. I tend to get more done as well.

Re: blowing gaskets - I've found other things in life to be much more harmful to wellbeing than illegal narcotics - like jobs and relationships.

fuck yeah. relationships in particular. coming to the end of a ten year ltr nearly pushed me over the edge at the start of this year. i've took tonnes of drugs and they've never even come close to doing that. lets get some perspective.

I don't believe in discrimination when it comes to recreational drug use. thoroughly devoted to the "what-ever-is-around" school of thought :)

but if i can only do one of those in the poll for the rest of my life, there is no question that it would be heroin.

i'm sure many will have different views, but out of all of these, heroin is the "healthiest" by far, provided that you are consistantly getting quality shit.

coke will destroy your nasal passage, make you psychotic, etc.

too much acid will make you go bannanas.

too much E will turn you into a zombie and eventually just dissapear.

so if you have an unlimited supply of quality stuff, prolonged heroin use is much, much better than prolonged use of any of the others.

(with that said, i don't do much of anything anymore. rarely will i do a few rails or drop some pills. and heroin is like, once a few years on average)

You can, indeed, live a long and healthy life addicted to opiates. Too bad the government made it public enemy number one! (while distributing it, of course) so they could put everyone (brown) in jail!
