Nothing out of the ordinary for me. I used to smoke weed and hash everyday for years, but I've really cut down over the past while. I gotta admit though, the first time I smoked it was incredible - i must have laughed for a good half hour standing outside my doorstep waiting for the buzz to wear off so my dad woudn't think I was up to something.  Wink

I experimented with illegal drugs as a college student: marijuana, LSD, cocaine, ecstasy, opiates, pretty much the full spectrum.  They didn't cause me any problems and I was able to quit them and become a (relatively) productive member of society.  

I can't honestly say that that was the case for everyone I hung out with at the time.  Some were not as lucky as I was.  I've seen addiction and people being dragged into the full-time drug lifestyle, destroying their potential or at least setting themselves back years while they cleaned up.

I wouldn't want to encourage anyone to take risks with their mind and body.  

Also, take it from someone who's experienced the whole gamut of intoxicants: alcohol is every bit as dangerous as illegal drugs.  Maybe even more so, because it's so easy to obtain.

Be careful out there.  At the very minimum understand what you are putting into your body and what it will do to you.  Taking any psychoactive drug is not something you should do lightly.

I did acid once and had a long conversation with Satan on how to run Hell more efficently and how his biggest problem was he needed to hire a better public relations guy. That was my first and last acid trip.

Never tried any illegal drug.  Never been drunk either.  I enjoy life just fine without damaging my brain, and frankly,  i'm not even curious about either experience.  I can commune with God without the use of pharaceuticals, legal or otherwise.

OK....You asked, so here we go...

Pot:  I started smoking it when I was 19 and still smoke it occasionally to this day.  I'm not a huge pothead like I used to be.  My biggest pot smoking days were in the mid 90's when Grunge music and that whole lifestyle were popular.  During those days I was stoned every day. 
These days, I do enjoy smoking a joint or a fat bowl before a marathon gaming session on my Xbox 360 or in the car in the theater parking lot before I go in to see a movie.  That's kinda been a tradition of mine for years.
Marijuana should totally be legalized.

Hash:  Just smoked it for the first time a couple months ago with my friends in the van on the way to the Rob Zombie concert in Des Moines, Iowa.  How I never came to smoke it before is a mystery.  It just never happened.  I was pleasantly surprised!

Opium:  Tried opium a few times many years ago.  Never got into it because it gave me a headache every time I smoked it.  Then I found out that it can be physically addicting so I stopped immediately.  Loved the smell of it, though.  Burning opium smells like Nag Champa incense.

Acid:  I've done acid twice in my lifetime.  The first time was with a buddy of mine and we drove all over town.  I remember laughing the whole time and seeing purple haze.  No serious hallucinations that I remember.  We found a part of a street that had been half-blocked off due to road work.  We got out of the car, took the sawhorses with the flashing lights on them and completely blocked off the entire street. 
The second time was two sugar cube hits I bought from a girl I worked with at the time.  My buddy Chris and I took them and then went to a nightclub where we laughed uncontrollably at everyone who passed by us.
It's been at least ten years since I used LSD.

Ecstacy:  Only did ecstacy twice and it was when I was in Australia back in 2001.  The techno/dance scene was really big down there at the time and my friends, recognizing that I was a total fish out of water from Iowa, needed something to help me cut loose.  Before they gave it to me, they educated me on using ecstacy safely because there are right and wrong things you can do while on it.  It worked and I had an awesome time!  When you're on ecstacy, all you want to do is dance and touch and be touched by beautiful women...which I did a lot of.  I had many opportunities to do it after I returned to the states, but always turned it down.  Haven't done it since.

Cocaine:  I am seriously against white powder drugs in any form.  Especially cocaine because I've seen what it's done to my friends who got seriously hooked on it.  Matter of fact, I've never snorted anything up my nose...ever.  I don't know what it feels like to do that and I don't want to. 
I did smoke cocaine in a joint once, but I didn't know it was in there.  My friend rolled a fatty and after we smoked it, I felt really weird.  I told him that I felt weird and he said, "You like that?  I put a fat rail of coke in it!"  That p**sed me off big time.  I never would've smoked that joint had I known it contained cocaine.

Crack, Meth & Heroin  Never tried them.  Never will.  I've seen my friends' lives totally destroyed because of meth and crack.  Never had the desire to even go near heroin.


I don't have a problem with alcohol or pot.  Both can be very enjoyable when used responsibly in moderation.  Yes, I have experimented with other drugs, but they never took over my life.

I smoked pot a couple of times at parties, if somebody was passing it around. Never went out of my way to do it, and I can honestly say I was too drunk to notice what effect it had. TeddyR

Booze? There was a period when I'd be at the local bar every Friday and Saturday (and often Thursday) night, or at a dance or party or friend's house, knocking them back. Beer mostly, sometimes rye or vodka, occasionally scotch. But that was with my friends, at an age when we could do that. As everybody got settled down, married, bought a house or whatever, it got to be less frequent and not nearly as much fun. These days, I don't really drink at all. Maybe a couple at Christmas. I've had bottles of beer, left by houseguests, that sat in the back of the fridge for weeks. I was always strictly a social drinker, and actually, I've come to not even really like that intoxicated sensation. Give me a Pepsi and I'm happy.

Caffeine is my current drug of choice, but I try to restrict coffee to the morning and early afternoon. I might switch to decaf after that, if I still feel like sipping something hot.

A lot of alcohol no drugs.  I really don't do much of anything anymore.  I find with kids around you don't get to sleep much off.

I smoked pot every day from about 1982 until 1995.  I prefer it to booze, no calories and I enjoy the buzz more.  I've always been able to listen to music or practice guitar for hours on end after a nice bowl.  My interest in bad movies can be attributed to pot.  My wife still picks up a little bit occasionally, like once a year.  

Tried coke - like RC says, too much money for too little buzz.  Mushrooms!  Tried those a couple of times.  Fun stuff.  Some friends and I walked down to a park - the blacktop on the road was shimmering.  The power lines above us had purple lines next to them.  We absolutely laughed our butts off for hours.

Now it's just a few beers on Friday and Saturday nights.
