Was in Camden town today and spotted loads of little silver tubes everywhere (gutters) Seen them on sale under the name of 'cream' so I guessed they are the laughing gas things kids/young adults are inhaling for a quick buzz?

If you're using illegal drugs, it does have an effect on people's lives.

Then it is the fault of the stupid laws that it has an effect on people's lives.
I shouldn't stop using illegal drugs because some stupid law makes it necessary for me to give money to a criminal in order to acquire them.

Just listening to to a discussion about drug users in the city. Made me think; if you're a recreational drug user do you share part of the guilt for the problem. (wasn't thinking about weed as that could be legalised and removed from the equation any day)

I don't really understand. I mean I can get Mycrofts black market point but I don't see how an individual using illegal drug contributes to drug users in the city?

Demand induces supply, facilitates demand?

Ah perhaps. Honestly though I don't find that a particularly convincing line of argument.

See my reply to penny above. I suppose I meant morally? The way people say casual racism/sexism is on the same spectrum as more serious racism/sexism. Also practically, in that the same dealers that sell heroin also make money from coke or whatever sold to recreational users... but I wasn't actually too interested in the pratical side...

I haven't really thought it through too much. Might depend on people's view of personal responsibility.

I liked the mushrooms,they were a nice pleasant buzz when mixed with a gaire musical meet by the sea,and the tangerine giraffes who danced to and fro' the clouds and the rainbows only added to the joy of it all.

But casual racism/sexism is harmful (to others) in itself.
One person smoking a couple of joints per week isn't harmful to others.
In fact, scratch that.
The two things aren't comparable in any reasonable way.
Casual racism/sexism doesn't require a payment of money to criminals.

I had a strange conversation yesterday : soneone arguing that drugs are only wrong if children suffer the consequences. That's the kind of thinking of addicts who try to justify their sickness and then call it a free choice. I do not believe that drug is ever a free choice, but it makes people believe they are free!

My view on drugs today is very different than it was years ago.
I started smoking weed and drinking at 13. This progressed to painkillers and benzos,e's and coke. Then heroin came into the picture - something I swore I would never touch.

For the past 5 years my problems got a lot worse. I was a daily user of alcohol,weed, benzos and heroin while holding down a full time government job. I am estranged from my family, nearly lost my house and job. Anger was a huge problem and had a few assault charges.

I came off everything 6 months ago cold turkey which was a very stupid thing to do - ended up in hospital with seizures. All the time working a full time government job. My colleagues had no clue. They still don't. I had to go to my boss as I've been so sick from withdrawels and anxiety and paranoia. I get time off from work to receive outpatient treatment and see a psychotherapist - himself a reformed addict.

I'm 6 months clean and sober and its only in the past 2 weeks I can sleep and eat and don't feel half as distressed.

Obviously people get into this state for a reason. Thats why its so important to talk. Which is very difficult in itself with the shame and stigma involved.

I do hope for a brighter future

Pow Pow, I won't patronise you with "well done" etc, but your post moved me very much and made me feel that sometimes almost impossible situations can be overcome. Thank you.
