Are drugs bad???...Personally from my own experiences and from what I've seen them do to people, I think that drugs are bad. But I guess it depends what kind of drugs were talking about but I mean in general. I always hear druggies talk about how safe they are and how they are good for you but I feel like they're just trying to justify their drug usage/habit. I've experimented with drugs for couple of years and have had some amazing and life changing experiences but I wouldn't promote drug usage of any kind to anyone and I don't consider them to be safe. Obviously drugs like heroin and crystal meth are bad but I also I feel like psychedelic drugs like acid and dmt can be dangerous too. They can potentially be harmful to your mind and body and make people behave in dangerous ways...Anyways what's your opinion?

Not to take an igtheist model of thought to this discussion, but before this thread has ANY worth whatsoever y'all need to stringently define 'drugs' and then categorise them.

I think drugs test your awareness and willpower. They put you in an alternate state of mind which can lead to a lot of interesting ideas that can be useful. However, when used for the wrong reasons, drugs can be bad mkay. They can lead to dependence. It's all in the brain and your brain gets used to these chemicals and grows around it. You just gotta understand yourself.

To play devil's advocate, what about people that are in drug induced psychosis, and end up self harming and doing damage to themselves and others.

Yes...exactly. it really just depends on the person. You have to be mentally prepared. Some people are able to function normally while on drugs...and some people lose complete control over everything.

Exactly what I was saying...there's always a risk.

You really do. All of my bad trips could have been avoided if I was in a more positive setting and didn't have mental anxiety at the time. Drugs give your mind and imagination a lot of power, you gotta be careful. I do think a lot of positive ideas can come from drugs though. I've learned a lot about myself on drugs. You just gotta keep the mindset up while sober and not depend on the drugs

No.

Excessive consumption is bad.

Sugar isn't bad, excessive consumption of sugar is bad
Alcohol isn't bad, excessive consumption of alcohol is bad

you get the idea.

Again, playing devil's advocate here.

Person has one hit of meth, it's not bad, but then they start taking more, thinking "I'll be ok", and then the addiction begins. Is it not safer to avoid in general?

The same rule applies to sugar and alcohol, the effects of excess consumption of those is not so obvious sometimes.

Pfft, smoking is for pussies. To really get the marijuanas to work, you have to inject them. But sometimes, if you inject just one marijuana, you will die

I once tried going without caffeine for a few days. Honestly, it was harder than going without alcohol.

Yes, antibiotics are the worst, but statins and beta-blockers are right up there as well...

Most drugs in small medicinal dosages are beneficial. Though most starter doses are recreational and way above medicinal use. Also people just take more and more and start a routine, then it destroys them for a while when they have to quit.
#23
Why does this even exist? If we're talking paracetamol I'll think you'll be alright. If we're talking heroin then be prepared to die / get seriously damaged. In terms of serious illegal drugs, it just depends on whether you think things that slowly (or possibly quickly) chip away at your life as a trade for escaping reality and fooling your body into thinking it feels good is a bad thing or not. So... yeah. More hardcore drugs (meth, heroin, etc) BAD.

Yeah, most legal medicinal drugs are just as dangerous in similar doses to most illicit drugs. They all fuck you over.

Can you elaborate on this?...

If you prepare heroin to the same standards of purity as an intravenous drug used in a clinical setting, and dose it properly, then it is safe.

For example, if you - or anyone you know - ever gets an epidural, it will most likely have heroin in it. Just heroin that was prepared in a properly clean setting.

Can you support this because in the US it's a Schedule 1 (no medically accepted use) drug.

Opiates are all basically the same thing, Morphine, codeine, and thebaine are all from the poppy plant itself, where as herion and the oxy variants are all produced synthetically from morphine

Herion basically reacts/breaks down into morphine inside your body anyway, so it is kind of the same thing but also not really

as for arguing if its medical or not, unless you're using it directly for medical purposes then I really don't think it counts

It all depends on the drug and why/how much it's used. This isn't elementary school.
