    Well the research says otherwise.

    Something legal and prescription based. Not sure what, but something that would make me feel relaxed. A really great painkiller or something.

    I wouldn't touch anything illegal and potentially harmful now that I'm a parent. I dabbled in my teens and early 20's, I've had my 'fun'.

    None, I've not had anything no drugs no cigarettes. I did drink alcohol for a few years only ever got drunk about 3 times didn't like it and now I don't drink anymore. I know chances are my kids are going to want to drink alcohol but I will be mighty disappointed if they chose to do drugs or smoked cigarettes

The fact is it's easy to sink into a deep depression after taking the drug, which can lead to either taking more ecstasy and becomes a vicious cycle (for some people).

    I know someone who committed suicide after a night on ecstasy. Granted there were mental health issues in play, but the next day can be absolutely brutal.

    I know someone who died one NYE after taking an E too no suicide, she just died.

    Thats the thing we dont know the long term effects of it as it ios only a relatively new drug. To say its "safer" than alcohol is jumping the gun a bit, who know what effects we are going to see 10-20 years down the track from the E generation - plenty of mental health ones im sure.

    Its a disgusting drug, it made me feel like i was dying during the come down - never again.

    Pot is a lot more harmful and addictive than you think! My brother is screwed up big time due to being addicted to it since he was 14, he is now 35. He's a thief, he's been in prison, he still smokes it all day every day as well as doing heavier drugs. Do not underestimate the effects short and long term.

    I went through a faze late teens where I smoked pot over a period of a few months but it was a faze I got over, it was a short term thing. Never touched it since and never would and actually won't associate with anyone who does smoke it or takes harder drugs.

    All we can hope as parents is that if our children do try any drug they will be responsible and realise its a faze soon realising it is wrong and get past it.

    Drugs are a worry and it is a big reason we made the choice not to bring our children up in the city. We live in the country, kids don't do drugs here except the indigenous who petrol sniff and drink heavily and that occurs in their communities rather than in town. Kids are less likely to be exposed to drugs where we are and everyone knows everyone so you would soon hear if your kids are in any trouble. We just don't have kids wandering the streets at night, we have very little crime. Every time we go to the city all we hear about and see is drugs and crime. So glad we don't live amongst it.

    Sorry to disillusion you KG, but I went to a small private school in the country and I was exposed to drugs at the age of 13. My experience is not unique either.
