Illicit Substances in Open Discussion Posted December 12, 2005 Ooooooh Drug posts....My time to SHINE. Ok, so not really, I'm at the "getting out of drugs" phase in my life. I used to smoke alot of weed as was per norm of most of my friends. At first it was trippy crazy fun, but it quickly becomes something to do while you're doing other things, almost to the point of smoking cigarettes, but once every two hours and we would rarely get a great high anymore. Unfortuately ecstasy and coke have been increasing in popularity in Ottawa right now. I don't really have a problem with people doing drugs, I've tried a great variety from weed to E to mush and LSD. Most have been a great learning experience. However, alot of people don't realize the increasing consequences with the increasing highs. They didn't get addicted to weed, they only take mushrooms once every couple of months and they never OD'd.....so why is any of that going to happen when they start railing coke? And it doesn't happen at first (at least for most people) but after getting into a coke habit it gets harder and harder to stop each time and no one ever really notices until they actually try cutting it out. Thats it for the Public Service Announcement. Aside from that I think if you want to try something, go ahead and do it, but be responsible. It's really not hard to do a quick search of vast forums of users of anything, and experienced insight can be very helpful. Have fun tripping, but don't make it your life, just a weekends entertainment.
