    Being sober just feels so one-dimensional and fake to me now. Kind of like something out of the giver, or some crazy shit like that. I don't feel as if I need to be high constantly, but I honestly can't imagine being one of those people who have never tried a drug of any kind, especially bud and hallucinogens. It just sort of opens your eyes. Stoned out of my mind, apologies for shitty post.

    D.A.R.E. just makes kids want to try drugs even more.

    I ask myself the same thing, but in a much less profound way. I've tried various drugs including mushrooms, but while some of it was definitely interesting (esp one certain mushroom trip in a shitty Bed&Breafast in Groningen), none of it was really life-changing to me.

    Except for amphetamines. How do people manage to go to work and actually perform their job for 8 hours without snorting a little speed in the morning? I mean, I used to be able to do it, but not anymore. I just have no motivation whatsoever without it and I can't really focus on anything either. I can more or less take or leave all other drugs (have been smoking only little pot in the last time due to less money), but without speed I can't really get anything more complex than grocery shopping done in a reasonable time frame and with decent results.

    As a side note, I'm not seeing any major weight loss. I still get hungry and I still eat and still get major cravings for sweet stuff. You'd think at least that would've gone away.

    Fact: the best tastiest alcoholic drinks beat the tastiest non-alcoholic drinks, although non-alcoholic drinks may well be involved in the former's creation.

    Like when it's hot, I'll take a chilled light lager over a soda or even a good ice tea, although it's a close call on the ice tea.

    Drugs are overrated and so is alcohol. I seriously don't understand the appeal in getting completely fucked up.

    Seeing people who are on drugs/alcohol acting like retards is enough reason for me to not have to try it. Plus, it's just something I don't need. I can get by just fine in my life without having even more distractions. I want to get work done and I can't imagine how drugs of any kind would help me with that whatsoever.
    'You have to try it once' is a retarded reason imo. I don't have to try it. I'm not missing out on anything that I would want to have. I just don't care and don't want to care about it either. Not now and not in the future.

    We do it by finding interesting shit to do. Fuck pot. And fuck speed, if we could get cocoa leaves we could make a nice brew in the morning from a couple of them in place of speed or coffee, would do wonders too.

    So, if not hooch and dope, what vices do you keep?
    Also, why protest so hard?
    Your post seemed as if you experience constant pressure, not unlike an affirmation, you making sure your still onboard?

    It pisses you off? That's a little harsh, letting something affect you to such a degree if in fact the provocation is unknown, wouldn't you think?

    Perhaps it's just me but I spend considerable time seeking the inner roots/ causation of my thoughts and feelings, after all, if you know it you can control it.

    I do admit there are times when I am confronted with an alien thought or emotion which seems so far removed from the context of my current situation, seemingly flowing with no visible wellspring, that I find no bearing to quiet it.

    It is in these moments I find it essential, to change my perception, a different angle, under a different light, so that I may see the hidden derivation of these estranged feeling and ideas, to give them meaning and connection, thus gaining a better understanding of the world and its effect on my mind.

    There is no better tool for this then LSD, in one well focused trip you can find the accomplishments of years of meditation.

    I don't quite know. The only reason I can think of is that I've been pushed/bullied to do things like this by former classmates and I always despised the thought of it. I guess it flips a switch within me when I have to talk about it and I get reminded of these times. That doesn't quite seem like a strong enough reason to provoke such a reaction though.
    Either way, I'm sorry for acting out like that, I shouldn't have.

    Regarding the rest of what you said: I do know that it can help overcome mental barriers and allows for an easier communication between the small/large brain, subconscious/conscious and so on, but it's just not something I'm interested in. If I do have problems with myself, I try to sort them out by thinking about them and doing a lot of self reflection, asking other people for advice, etc. I don't want to rely on a drug to help me with that.

    I figured it was something along those lines. You were smart not giving in, if you get high with stupid people there is no way to avoid getting a little bit of the retardation yourself. Here's to hoping those dicks get a hold of some zombie dust and eat each others face off.

    Weall, obviously you haven't experienced how rewarding being a worthless drug addict can be, have you ever eaten a face? it's just a whole new level of spiritual awareness, reality evasion FTW!

    Just once in my life I gotta catch that feel.
    To be so focused, so committed, so driven to eat a fucking face that nothing can hinder me and it takes a beating to the death for the chewfest to stop.

    Edit: or fucking something to death↓
