Drugs are a life choice. Good or bad, it is something people do. When used as a part of a person's entertainment budget, they are generally as harmless as any other recreational activity. When a person over does a drug whether it be marijuana cocaine or ecstasy, it becomes negative. The same could be said for any indulgent
recreational activity (Obsessed with : gaming (WoW/Evercrack
), sports (gambling), a girlfriend/boyfriend) Anything good is meant to be enjoyed in moderation
and not taken to hardcore extremes. People who do drugs deal with the negative consequences of their own vices
. While you can't deny that drugs may change somebody's personality, nobody is perfect to begin with, so it really doesnt matter. It may be hard for a non-drug user to understand how a person can accept something as sacred as their own personality being altered, and that is probably why the concept is bothersome
to them. A few things to note:
-A casual drug habit does not kill you.
-Smoking weed will probably affect your memory. Big deal. And to those who are sheltered from the real world, everybody smokes weed.
-Cocaine will make you do some stupid shit. Theres a reason why it rhymes with insane.
-Overuse of psychedelics
will make it hard to think in the future, this is true
-If the substance is known as addictive such as meth, heroin, coke and crack, you will probably get addicted to it if you try it and have ready access to it.
I have sat around smoking weed for months at a time relaxing to the extreme and not worrying about anything. I have seen all existence as a singular point in time and space while on mushrooms. I have acted as outrageously as Rick James
while on cocaine. I have had sex on Ecstasy more times than I can count
. Yeah, I have trouble remembering shit sometimes. Once in a while I feel like theres something I should understand that I don't. Sometimes I regret blowing thousands of dollars that I have nothing to show for. But the fact of the matter
is that everybody has these same problems, and I know plenty of people who have never done drugs who have far less to show for their time in this world than I do, who have never experienced the things I have and never will.
