    Exactly. Smoking anything is absolutely horrible for the lungs, which is why I use a vape. Edibles are the safest.

    Vape is not safest, lol. Look at the bottle for Vape: "Warning: This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical." :creep: Yeah, my brother use it and he believed it is safest but his bottle say otherwise, lol.

    I guess some people lose control with alcohol...
    I've never really consumed drugs other than alcohol.

    Well, some prescribed drugs perhaps but not in a recreational way, anyway clonazepam is really soothing.
    Also, I've never consumed mj on my own, but sure I have been together in a closed environment with college friends that were smoking it, enough to get high just from shared air, also soothing tbh.

    Not too much into this anyway. But soothing is nice.

    However, you still inhale "smoke cloud" anyway. :)

    Some people loses control over alcohol and some people lose control over marijuana as well. Anything like that aren't healthy.

    no, I never smoke that. I don't feel attracted to test things out.
    drug doesn't appeal to me, and I'm fine like that. but then, I don't know what you feel and why it would be "better".

    if you don't act differently, feel differently, lose your mind, see things, then what's the point except losing your money? it's just because it's illegal and it's fun doing dangerous things?

    I've had gas and air and morphine after I dislocated my shoulder about three years ago. The Morphine made me fall asleep, the gas, however, was fucking balling.

    Pathetic. I don't see it why would a drug make someone feel better.
    That's just a temporary solution to a permament problem.
    Now i know that not everyone who's depressed relies on drugs tl feel better and there are people who resort to them purely out of curiosity or peer pressure (among teens particularly) so that they can be accepted into their friend group and look like the "cool kid" or something.
    That's even dumber imo
    Be it drugs alcohol or smoking i can't stand them. Just the smell of booze and smoking are enough to trigger my anger.

    Oh... yeah, caffeine is a drug.
    Then I am a drug addict, and it really makes you feel happier, unless your coffee was brewed burnt.

    Exactly. There even some studies that suggest than weed is less addictive than caffeine.

    Anime isn't cringey, just a different culture's entertainment.
    I agree, drugs aren't the solution.
    You can get "high" naturally by doing things, like listening to music, playing games and, there's this one guy that gets it from showing people his fox pictures. Drugs are just a waste of life, you can escape from depression without drugs OR suicide, you just gotta be willing to try new things.
    Not judging you guys, but not the best thing to be doing (although things like poppies and marijuana are natural drugs, their there for a reason. Cancer patient's going through chemo is one of the best uses for marijuana, poppies have painkillers in them)

    Alcohol, weed, eventually gets boring once you are used to.

    Also some random stuff from the pharmacy a few years ago because I was an idiot. I wouldn't be surprised some permanent things happened.

    Tylenol with Codeine 3. It made me feel really happy, and I suddenly wanted to go outside, and go do random outdoor things, like take a walk, or go shopping. It made me feel super alive and active! It was for a tooth abscess, and wisdom teeth removal. The dentists I went to kept throwing the shit at me.

    Then after a while, the pain went away, and I still found my self taking my medicine, because I had so many. I Googled if it was normal, and learned I was becoming mentally addicted to pain killers, and I threw the pills out, lol. Addiction is scary, you sometimes don't even know you're addicted, until you look it up.

    Oh, and how were they? They were great! I wish I could still take them, but, yeah, I don't want to get addicted.

    Only drugs I've ever done were in controlled situations, after eye surgery and wisdom teeth removal, had Percoset both times. Yes, it felt amazing and I slept well those nights, but after that, yeah, no opiods again.

    If memory serves me Tylenol 3 is a 15/500 mg codeine/paracetamol (Acetaminophen), currently I'm taking 2 30/500mg ( known over there as Tylenol 4 ?) 4 times a day plus a small amount of morphine if/when things get really bad, although that really is a last resort and try not to take it if I can avoid it. And this has been going on now for what, year and a half for so and I can say that its never made me happy. It just completely slows down my thinking and just dulls my senses. Does it take away the pain ? some of it, but I'm always in pain pretty much every second of every day. At most it allows me sit up and not be able to concentrate on anything, and for someone like me who always likes to be doing something it really is a living hell.

    Things are getting better tho at least in a limited fashion, this is the first month I've tried using CBD oil ( actually vaping it ) and it does seem to be having positive effect. The pain hasn't been quite so bad and i have been able to cut down a little on the cocodamol. Problem here tho is that I cant get CBD on prescription, evidently i don't qualify for it, so this limits me on how much i can actually buy, which isnt really a lot.

    Every one is a drug addict to some degree. Sugar is a drug, a very widely sociably acceptable drug that no one actually considers a drug.

    Nothing. Never been trash enough to need to alter my reality to enjoy life. I guess if you're boring, drugs are a great option.
