What have drugs done for you?
    #403246 - 04/17/10 06:55 PM (6 years, 7 months ago)

What have drugs done for you?
How have they made positive and negative influences on your life?
Not just- "they get me high"
Instead, how does getting "high" made you different?
Have they influenced your mind, life, and personality- if indeed they did, what and how?
Their about a million different examples, many beautiful and profound and have affected all of our lives immensely without knowing it. For example all of the drug using scientists, artists, psychologists, philosophers, political and spiritual leaders, in many cases what drugs did for them affects the whole world. Probably even more so for people on this site, but more obviously.
But what have they done, especially first hand, for you?

This is either going to a good thread or a total fail... and drugs did that as well!

I dunno. I don't feel like I let them alter my life - rather, they are a part of it that just works.

I could say they "expanded my mind" and made me think about things differently - but they really didn't. I've always kinda been a free thinker.

I guess if drugs have done anything for me, its helping me meet like minded friends, and providing me with a very entertaining hobby.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Cannabis helped me realise how dumb, & exactly the same people are.
As a result of smoking cannabis, it also decreased overall shyness,
nervousness, & how easily embarrassed I get.
I still do get these, but not as bad as I used to.

"She quickly stood up & looked down, the door on her shoe had gotten larger.
Her shoelaces then quickly took hold of her hands, which caused her to sneeze.
She spit on the puddle of liquid rice to her left, hoping it would release the toads from their chains.
It did nothing.
Desperately she bit into her arm-chair, hoping, praying the bird will hear her call.
"Get the lock!" Sponny yelled.
But was too late.
The door had opened.
She quickly grabbed her shoe & threw it, spilling & exposing the contents inside & relaseing those things."

Are you talking about only when you're high or a permanent thing?

Drugs made me realise my rock bottom potential and made me strive to avoid ever getting near that again. They made me a better person. I want them, I crave them. But I know I can't afford to have them in my life as a casual thing until I have my life in order first. Until I have my degree and preferably some form of permanant post in a school, with whole summers free to explore the inner realms of myself with drugs I can't mess around with them because I go too wild and fuck everything up. They've made me sad that I can't be on them now, but also excited that soon I'll be able to go monkey poo on them for long stretches.

maybe you can use psilocybin to help explore your lack of self control with drugs?  Ironic, i suppose, but there could be some benefit to you this way. 

I thought I posted a response here earlier.  The only psychedelic I have taken has been in the form of P. cubensis.  I've tripped probably 30-40 times on them.  I love the feeling I get on them.  A feeling of calm, peace and love.  A feeling that I am not afraid to say whatever comes to my mind where ever I am.  No fear of someone judging me for saying something off the wall.  I really like that.  It's something I need to work harder on in my real life.  I am not a person who talks and talks and talks without much to say.  I try to be considerate of other people, all the time.  that's an aspect of my life that I think I am fully conscious of all the time.  Whether I am blocking someone's view and I dont have to be or if there's a ton of traffic and I notice someone has been waiting to turn into my lane for a while.  Simple things like that.  But I think overall, it's love.  that's what it's all about, love and exuding positivity.  the shulgins know this well.  Anyway, that's all i care to write at the moment.

One time in the midst of my heroin habit I smoked some DMT.  I was lying on my bed staring at my ceiling fan and some portal opens up through the spinning blades.  I then hear "You are sleeping on the job!!!".  This led me to reflect on my lifestyle choices and helped me realized wow I am a good for nothing dope head. 

That is probably the single most important psychedelic experience I have had.

This was last summer.  I was way too deep and in too much denial to take action at that point in time but the experience has never left me.  I knew right when it happened just how profound it was.  33 days clean so far though.  I am figuring I should go see that entity again soon...

Every time I trip on LSD I quit smoking for like two weeks then im back on em lol

Its like a thought process im guaranteed to have when I light up a cig when im tripping :shrug:


But Cannabis (mainly) LSD, Mushrooms, DMT, and all the other things that made me :feelsgoodman: along the way have really changed who I am and how I live my life and percieve the universe, all in a very positive manner

In order to be fair, I guess I can honestly say that smoking my herb has helped me with any social anxiety I used to feel. I used to be nervous as hell meeting new people...something about smoking just makes me very confident and OK with new people. I think it just makes me feel more comfortable with who I am...and helps me not really care what the other people are thinking, because I'm high as fuck :lol:

I'm not sure it applies when I'm not smoking. I rarely go to parties or meet new people without a little herb in me.

what has pot done for me?

Well first off, i do not need pharmaceuticals for depression, since cannabis seems to work just fine.

Also, i can cope with the hernitated disk pain in my lower back with cannabis and no use of opioid pain killers!

Pot has been a blessing!!!
:peace:

Other way around for me. Different strokes I guess. Weed makes my world a lot more self centered. My thoughts take the form of inner dialogue in my head more and I just focus on my own little bubble and neglect issues of people outside of my immediate company.
