Drugs are a bit of silent and sensitive topic. But they have been and still are a part of my life.

When younger, I was addicted to heroin. Thankfully I'm off that now, but I still recreationally take softer drugs, such as ket, weed and shrooms. And I smoke and drink regally.

What do you guys think? It's always been the norm for me, and in my industry (musician and producer) to take drugs on night outs. Should I stop all together?

I think more info is needed with regards to the frequency of your use. Also, do you tend to do things you regret while using?

The fact that you are a recovering addict is also quite troubling.

Okay... well, I do weed *almost* every week, and I guess I do other and more harder drugs on special events and/or on nights out. I do sometimes regret it, especially when I've passed out or thrown up or whited because of them.

Well, marijuana use almost never causes concern. but I would keep a very close eye on the others. Ketamine, e, GHB or any other synthetic club drug you should stop using right now. Those drugs are very bad news if used often. And for god's sake do NOT go near meth.

On a recent trip to Malaysia, as soon as the plan touched down it was announced "Welcome to Malaysia, Malaysia has zero tolerance with drug trafficking, DEATH to drug traffickers!" :eek:

I have no sympathy for drug abusers or dealers though.

I wouldn't consider ketamine a soft drug by any means.

Normally weed use doesn't concern me, but considering your past, it says to me you have an addictive personality, so I'd use caution with just about any substance.

Why do people freely admit to doing illegal things?

When younger? WTF, you are only 16 right NOW according to your website (born in 93)

Stop using "drugs". Period. They are very bad for you.

Marijuana isn't harmful a drug.
There we go;)

Medical Marijuana is legal in Oregon and I hold a card.
I wasnt talking about soley weed there (just look at the first post, he names off quite a bit...) and chances are, he doesn't have a medical card as hes 16 and that would be illegal most likely* (assuming laws in the UK, where hes from, are similar to US). Also smokes at drinks regulary at 16 in addition to ket, shrooms and weed?

Well, that is a little foolish, isn't it? There are some cops who are members here, too...
Don't even have to be a cop. All police facilities have anonymous tip reporting concerning illegal activities and with the info he's willingly provided, he just opened up a potential can of worms for himself if someone cares enough to report him

I say that to illustrate just how foolish it is to list illegal activites you have done and then give personally identifiable information in the same post

They seem to work out fine for some, while completely ruining others. You can't really generalize and say if it's good or bad entirely, but rather look at it on a case by case basis. If it doesn't affect your ability to provide and care for yourself and/or any dependents and you enjoy it then go for it. However you should be aware that there are unfortunate consequences associated with long term abuse, ones easily avoided by getting your good feelings from other activities.

No sir I don't do them, nor would I want to. I like my mind the way it is... cluttered and barking mad.

Illegality of drugs remove them from consideration; heavy penalties for users and distributors should be maintained to lock up those abusing their life with them.

Texas, unfortunately.
I'll admit, I use weed on occasion. I don't see a problem with it as long as it doesn't become a daily thing.

The harder stuff, yeah it's definitely something to stay away from, though. Most of the people I know who do that stuff are OK for the most part, (they don't use regularly) but it's far too easy to get hardcore addicted.
