Drug Use: the Reality

 I have tried many drugs in my time, and I would say that any seem fine in moderation. They can cause you to think differently than you would normally, and I would say that the combination of drugs and intelligent friends can really open your eyes to the world as it is, rather than how it is portrayed to you in the media.

Cannabis should be legal, as it is seriously no worse a drug than tobacco and alcohol, and both of those drugs are legal.

Exstacy kills less people every year than peanuts do, but you don't see people saying that peanuts should be banned! It makes you feel amazing and connected with everyone around you for about 6-8 hours, and then you will feel ****, moody and emotionally drained for the next day or so, until your serotonin supplies are replenished by your brain.

Cocaine is a very mild effect drug, but is highly addictive. It is the type of drug that when you first take it, you don't really notice anything. It's far more mild than being drunk for example. But after a while you learn to look for the high, and the effects become more noticeable. I wouldn't recommend using it more than once a month, or at the very least, only at weekends, otherwise you WILL get addicted.

Acid just makes me laugh, to the point of my face hurting. It can be a bit wierd the first time as it warps your vision so things look very strange. Distance perspective can be altered, along with how defined the edges of objects are, giving them a melting quality. Be prepared that this happens when you look at other people too, which can be a bit un-nerving the first time (at least it was for me). Wide open spaces are the best places to take acid... not indoors in a small bedroom... that would probably not go too well. (mushrooms are roughly a weaker version of this type of high).

Ketamine too is funny. It's wonderfully relaxing, and also slightly trippy in an acid way, but the effects only last about 30 mins-1 hour. Again distance perception can be altered, and walking becomes slightly harder than usual, as your balance may feel off. It can make the floor feel spongy under your feet when walking too. Chatting with friends on ketamine is fun, but dancing is fun too (although you may look like an idiot while you do it, but you won't care at all!!)

There are dangers with drugs, as with anything you consume. You body may not like it, and react badly too it, but that is basically the same risk you take when trying a new food for the first time. The first sign that you may not be tolerant to a drug is if you throw-up, although my friend Steve used to always throw-up after swallowing e's, but after that one bout of sickness he was fine and could enjoy the drug the rest of the evening without incident, so throwing up isn't always a bad sign.

If anyone wants to know anything else on this topic, I will do my best to help. 

BTW: Before you go jumping to conclusions about the type of person I am, I would like to inform you that I have a BSc and an MRes, so that's 2 degrees, while also using drugs at the time (I smoked pot everyday during both those courses). You can be a productive and useful member of society and still enjoy yourself with drugs, as long as you don't go overboard and use them too much.
