    Default Have you ever tried illegal drugs? *Potential Trigger Warning*

    Have you ever tried illegal drugs? Or do you know someone who has?

    I am really, genuinely curious as to why people try them. I just find it really hard to understand.

    I am hoping to gain a better insight into what might drive people to dabble in potentially harmful substances.

    I guess I am wondering:

    What was the decision process like in deciding to try it?

    Did the potential for harmful effects enter into the equation?

    Was peer pressure a factor?

    Do you regret the decision?

    Thanks so much for any insight you can offer. I understand that this is a sensitive topic, and really appreciate your input.

    ** Slowly raises hand** I have tried smoking at 16 - hated it and never done it since. Dabbled in a little bit of pot from 16 to 18 - see no point as it just makes me fall asleep. I have taken a pill 3 times in my last year of highschool and on my 18th bday - no interest to ever do it again

    What was the decision process like in deciding to try it?
    I just wanted to know the effects and what it was like

    Did the potential for harmful effects enter into the equation?
    NO

    Was peer pressure a factor?
    Not at all - i discontinued use after i tried it

    Do you regret the decision?
    No - but that is only because i was lucky. I am well aware it could have easily gone alllll wrong with the decision to just try them.

    I've only ever tried marijuana as a teen. And to this day nothing else.

    I wanted to try drugs, I was more the leader of my group and was the one who started drink, smoking and enter to try drugs first.
    My friend's and I spent nights sleeping in the city and drinking and smoking.....
    So not the best kids to start with
    I guess it was made to sound great by older people at school... I loved feeling different by drinking and thought it would be better than drinking. I only smoked it a handful of times and it didn't make me all that different just made me feel happy and weightless. I didn't think the feel was worth smoking .. I though it tasted bad.

    Within a year I was no longer friend's with any of the people I used to be, not long after they all became heavy drug users and are all addicts.


    Lol sorry I think you ment more taboo drugs.. but just thought I'd share.

    Yes. Why? because I was young, curious, wanted to have fun, monkey see monkey do.
    Do I regret it? No, its an experience I've had and put it behind me as my younger years.

    Yes, I took ecstasy when I went out one night just before I met DP.

    Deciding to try it: Peer pressure + curiosity. My friend said she was getting a pill for a night out, did I want one? So I said yes...

    Did the harmful effects enter into the equation? Yes. I was terrified, as my aunt had a terrible reaction to E when she was a teen. I took 'half' a pill first, then the rest a little bit after.

    Yes peer pressure was a factor

    Yes I regret the decision. Nothing bad happened but I hate that I let myself put such an unknown nasty substance into my body. Never again.

    Yes. I smoked pot, tried ecstasy, MDMA, coke and acid.

    No peer pressure. General curiosity.

    Nothing bad ever happened.

    I smoked a fair bit of the mary jane when I was an older teen - mostly because my friends did - but I'm not sure we're meant to talk about this *zips lips*

    Yes, i've done most drugs. I was addicted to speed and Ice when I was in my late teens. I've also done marijuana, ecstacy, LCD, acid, pretty much everythin except crack, cocaine and heroine.

    I didn't really succumb to peer pressure, it was more curioisty and because I had a fairly wild party life in my teen years, it was something that was done in the crowd I hung with. Once I was hooked it was easy to ive in to "peer pressure" people would no I was trying to get off the stuff, but would offer it to me, and even my hardest attempts to decline still failed. I had a pretty miserable childhood, I rebelled quite early and the drugs gave me a release, they made me feel better and yes I would take the easy way out of my drama by taking drugs, I used to forget about everything else going on in my life when I was high.

    I don't reagret anything, even my addiction, I do believe it has made me stronger, but something that will stick with me forever.
