I’m hardly like Pete Doherty and you’ve probably done more drugs than me so this is just like, what I think of the big ones. I can only really answer all this out of my own limited experiences, and I don’t wanna go all Jay from the inbetweeners and pretend to be some kind of connaisseur because i’m really not buuut if anybody is interested then here is my personal opinions and stuff:
My favourite drug at the minute is MD (extacy) because it makes you feel brilliant and makes you love everybody in the world and makes music sound awesome. It’s also pretty harmless as long as you know the basic stuff going in, such as be careful how much fluid you drink when you’ve taken it. It’s best to get a glass of water and just casually sip it over time just to keep your mouth from going dry and that don’t start downing it because you forget how much you’ve already drank and too much water and that can be bad for you. Also, if you don’t like the high you’re on, eat some oranges or drink some orange juice and it’ll bring you down. The come down can be a bit rough for some people but as long as you’ve got no plans the next day it’s okay to just ride it out :) Way better than a hangover any day of the week. That sounds really negative but from my (limited) experiences it’s only ever been really fucking phenomenal.
Risk wise there are 7 deaths per every million users of the drug. (to put that into perspective 625 people per million drinkers die of alcohol related deaths every year.) These deaths are mostly because inexperienced people drink obscene amounts of water really quickly and so it’s the water rather than the drug that kills them. As long as you just sip on a glass over time you’ll be fine.
Marijuana is pretty fun just for like, conversational stimuli. Like if your hanging out with some mates it’s fun to just get high and chat shit. I’d hardly really class it as a drug most of the time because it literally just makes everything seem really funny and makes food taste amazing. It’s also non addictive and doesn’t do any harm to your body. (unless you mix it with tobacco in which case obviously you get whatever the tobacco does to you). I’ve been smoking weed for about 5 years and i’ve never smoked a cigarette once so in my case it doesn’t lead to any real kind of addiction. When I came to uni I didn’t smoke weed for about 2 months and I had no ill effects whatsoever, so if you’ve never done anything like this before then weed is probably the place to start. Make sure you’re in a pretty relaxed environment and you’ve got a lot of sugary stuff on hand as well and you’ll be fine :) Just as a side note, nobody has ever died as a direct result of smoking weed. You can’t OD on it. Much safer than Alcohol and to be honest affects you a lot less. You sober up after about an hour and there’s no real hangover. If you have a big sesh then go to sleep you might have some weird dreams and feel a bit funny the next day, but barely noticeable to the point where to be honest I probably just imagine it. IMHO everyone should try it because it is pretty harmless and fun.
Coke is a waste of time. Expensive and the high isn’t very long. Can fuck you up and is really addictive. Of course whatever you do with your own body is nobodies business so if you wanna try it then that’s cool. Just be careful that’s all.
LSD and Shrooms are both things I’ve never had the opportunity of trying. Really want to though. The thing with them is it’s less about the drugs and more about where you are mentally. They are not physically dangerous in the way that coke or smack is, but a bad trip can cause you to fuck yourself up (IE self harm or throwing yourself off a building because you think you can fly. As Bill Hicks said, if you think you can fly, try setting off from the ground first.) Definitely would try them if they were available though. Try everything once apart from incest and the internet :) I don’t think you can overdose on LSD, but you can take more than you can personally handle and could end up harming yourself. Best advice is to take it slow, but as i’ve never done it personally i’d read up on it yourself.
Crack+Heroin are pretty well known effects/after effects wise. Aint things I can see myself trying in the near future.
They’re the main ones I think. Obviously alcohol as well but you probably know enough about that. I prefer MD or Weed any day of the week but it’s different for everyone so it’s up to you :)
Hope this helped.
Just like to stress again that i’m no expert or anything.
This is just what i’ve seen/done/heard from people who have seen/done.
