Do you think a large majority of hot women take drugs?

    It seems like many hot women I've met have some sort of prescription from their doctor that they abuse. Adderall or Xanax or WAYYY too much alcohol or all of the above.

    Would love @Meister to weigh in.

    You just may have driven them to it.

    I've seen enough @Meister posts to believe he's likewise driven them to it as well.

    Sounds like to me you just hang around a bunch of druggies. Perhaps you need to revaluate your surrounding.

    I have a mental image of him meeting a "hot woman" and then rummaging through her purse asking twenty questions as to why she "abuses" her meds.

    It's not confined to hot women. It's a generally large percentage of Americans.

    Benzos like Xanax, Klonopin, etc and stimulants like Adderall and Ritalin, etc are way overprescribed IMPO. That said, there are some select patients that benefit greatly from these drugs. But they generally should not be first line treatment as they often are prescribed. Benzos especially generally should not be used regularly long term- plenty of scientific evidence on that.

    Most people in America go to the doc and expect a prescription. People would rather take a pill than partake in lifestyle changes. People feel shortchanged if they don't get prescriptions when the see docs and demand the quick and easy answer. And a lot of docs prescribe outside their areas of expertise too.

    But that's the culture we live in.

    What do you mean by "hot women" do you mean women that are running a fever or that are physically warm? I am going to assume(possibly incorrectly) you are talking about women you find attractive?

    I can not answer that question because what you might call "hot" is arbitrarily based on traits that someone(you in this case) finds attractive/appealing. So depending on the particular traits that you find attractive in a female it is very possible that a high number of those particular females are indeed medicated but that would absolutely very from person to person.

    I used to work in a call center and pretty much everyone was on something. Even I was on Xanax.

    However, I'm not a hot woman. I'm just an average potato.

    While I agree with your post, it just puts the "war on drugs" in stark relief. Someone could smoke weed, micro-dose led, do cocaine to achieve the effects of most of these pharmaceuticals - and these drugs are driven by market-competion vs artificial price structuring. There are just no regulatory mechanisms to guarantee what you're getting unfortunately. Just another example of why healthcare should never be a private for-(maximum)profit endeavor.

    Sounds like university kids these days are hooked on pills of some sort, the adderol/xanax thing started taking off just as I was graduating in my area.

    I've found with extemely attractive (subjective) people female and male.
    There are two types

    • the ones that know it and act like they know it.
    • the ones that know it and act 'normally'.

    I think the first bullet point group are the most likely to have issues dealing with their attractivness.

    So its all down to personality ie 'beauty is only skin deep'.

    I'm divorced and not dating so I don't have much info to draw any conclusions. My gut says the majority of "hot" women do not abuse drugs. If it looks that way in your case I hope it's attributed to your lifestyle and choices.

    Huh? I'd say a segment of hotties drink their asses off in young age, but seriously?

    Being attractive is such a burden in our society. They should try to make themselves as unattractive as possible so they can experience the natural high of all the perks and benefits the average and ugly receive at every social interaction. It just doesn’t get much better than being visually unappealing.

    I don't think it's strictly true that hot women take drugs. I'm sure some do but I'm sure average looking women do too. Just like guys.

    I would say my wife is pretty hot, she gets plenty of attention which I've learned to deal with over the years. She keeps fit through cross fit training and watches what she eats. She doesn't take drugs but loves a glass of wine. She's got plenty of attractive friends who I'm pretty sure don't take drugs either, it's just not the scene here anymore.

    Weed is largely been proven to not be a good anxiolytic, lots of research behind that. Granted benzos are not great long term either. Certainly milage will vary and people will have own experiences and not everyone wants to feel stoned all day. If the goal is not medicate daily in the long run, neither of these are good choices.

    Cocaine for ADHD is a horrible idea. Oral bioavailability is low, half life is very short, and it's highly, highly addictive- far more than something like Adderall. Best description of a cocaine high: "MORE". Not to mention the risk of cardiac complications. Effects on academic performance are negative with profound effects on attendence and memory. I will remind you Cocaine HCL is a pharmacuetically available Schedule II drug but not used for ADHD because we have more appropriate drugs.

    Street drugs are not the answer to therapeutic treatment of any conditions, particularly without medical supervision. Generic medications for the most part are extremely inexpensive, you'd be surprised. The wholesale cost of a 100ct bottle of Xanax tends to be no more than $2-3. I know some people believe natural is better but honestly your body doesn't know the difference and natural does not imply safer or more effective- in fact you're usually compromising one or both.

    The war on drugs has not been successful, but I believe the biggest problem is incarcerating them rather than giving them treatment. But it's often a far more complex issue than the right to put a substance in your body. Looking at the hard drugs, even if you had legalization (short of unlimited supplies at no cost) you'd still have a lot of crime and increased negative health outcomes.

    My main concern about marijuana legalization is the belief people fall under that it is the cure for everything, and people will seek it out and be consult with a non-medical professional to cure their legitimate medical problems.

    Agreed the for profit healthcare system has its deep rooted flaws. But even with legalized marijuana I'm sure someone's making good money along the way too.

    I'm a hot guy and I abuse medications occasionally. Many of my hot friends don't. But equally I don't drink alcohol and they drink a lot of it.

    I see far too many patients like these:

    Start adderall not because they have ADHD but because they want to do better in school. Then they feel agitated throughout the day because they're taking too much, so they get a Klonopin script. Then they still can't sleep at night all jumped up on Adderall so they take Ambien. Then their neurochemistry is so out of wack from the up and down, up and down of the stimulant that they feel depressed an then get an SSRI antidepressant like Prozac or Lexapro or Zoloft. And then the unnecessary use of Adderall makes guys obsessive and they start to believe they're balding so they demand Propecia. Alternatively acne and acne medication.

    Then all the 20 year old guys be begging for a Viagra script because, well, Adderall is a peripheral vasoconstrictor and SSRI's tend to induce sexual dysfunction.

    :rolleyes:
