Have you ever sampled hard drugs?

The other thread made me curious about DVDTalk's population's experience.
Hard drugs do NOT include marijuana.

Re: Have you ever sampled hard drugs?

Nope. And I don't think I'd ever care to. I've got too much (good) goin on. Getting into hard drugs (or too much booze) would set me waayyy back. Also, I'm fat. Fat guys and hard drugs don't have a history of long life expectancy. Also, I've developed such a stable and stressless attitude, I wouldn't want to muck it up.

Looking forward to buying legal weed after it's voted in this November!

Nope, never tried any hard or illegal drugs. I stick to alcohol and caffeine.

Re: Have you ever sampled hard drugs?

Back in the day I used to go to raves and would drop ecstasy and mushrooms, usually together. Not sure if they are considered "hard" or not.

My party days are long over now and no desire to do anything other than some weed, but it was fun back then.

Re: Have you ever sampled hard drugs?

I've tried:

G
K
X
Molly

Haven't tried Coke, been offered plenty of times, but I just don't think that kind of high would appeal to me.

Re: Have you ever sampled hard drugs?

I never understood the popularity of angel dust. Everyone I know who tried it got psychotic on it.

Maybe there's something people like about being psychotic? That's crazy.

Re: Have you ever sampled hard drugs?

Pot, hash, LSD, mescaline, THC and speed.

Using That 70s Show as frame of reference. I'm about two years older than the gang on the show. Graduated in '76. We had our Erics and Kelsos, but most of us were Hydes. We all had our bedrooms in the basement and hung out getting high.
One big difference is that we all had older brothers or older sisters with boyfriends. We hung out with them too. Some of these guys were 'Nam vets too. I knew guys like Fonda and Hopper in Easy Rider.
Most of the older guys had their own places and there were always people hanging out or a party going on.
Always got high when going to a concert or movie, especially the drive-in.
One year at Halloween we dropped acid and went to all the haunted houses in town.
Knew these five Marines who rented this big house outside of town. They rented it all year but were only there while on leave. Huge parties every night.
Once a buddy and I were hitchhiking and got picked up by a guy named Bob. Everybody called him "Boogie". He was a dealer. Asked us if we wanted to go to a party. Hell yeah! We got in with this guy and became go-betweens with our friends to score. We never let anybody know who he was or where he lived. Was at his house once and he had five pounds of hash on the kitchen table, cutting it up into ounces.
Knew a guy who worked assembly at Ford. During layoffs he'd deal pot. We were pretty good friends. Once he got paranoid and offered to give me a free ounce out of every pound if I kept his stuff at my house. I hid it in the oven. Got stoned and forgot about it. Turned oven on to cook a pizza. Pretty soon house was filling with smoke. I got it in time.
Had a supervisor at work who was overweight. On prescription diet pills. This was at a Big Boy restaurant. We'd drag our asses into work at 5am, pop a diet pill and work our asses off for eight hours. Then sit down to monster sized plates of spaghetti before clocking out.
Over time you just grow out of it. Friends drift away, get married, etc. and you turn into your parents.

Re: Have you ever sampled hard drugs?

I've done just about anything you can name with the exception of Ketamine. I've always wanted to try it, just never had the opportunity. Most of them are a whole lot of fun, though once you start to come down and are out of money and/or whatever drug you're doing, it's a real drag.
The method of ingestion can also make a huge difference. I HATE smoking meth, it tastes like ass, and makes my mouth feel weird, but if I shoot it, it's fucking awesome. OTOH, smoking crack if wonderful. Not heroin wonderful, but still, a lot of fun. Crack was also by far the worst drug to come down off of.

Re: Have you ever sampled hard drugs?

I'd love to try LSD some day but it would have to be in a controlled environment away from everyone and anything.

A roommate and I tried LSD. We really tried. But he had been ripped off, and it was just plain paper.

Re: Have you ever sampled hard drugs?

40+ years ago I tried all kinds of stuff. Started with alcohol and pot, tried windowpane, blotter acid, several different colors of tab mescaline, crystal tee, several different colors of tab tee, ups, downs, sideways, hash, crystal meth, loved me some thai stick. I'd buy an ounce of mexican, grind up hash and crystal tee and sprinkle it in the bag, shake it up real good, enjoyed the hell out of that. All of that fizzled out though.

Didn't do anything but alcohol and pot for many years, then I quit drinking, started doing cocaine, that's when it all fell apart. Wound up in the hospital with pneumonia, got out, was clean for awhile, then started drinking again. That was it for me, rock bottom. Ended up in the hospital, damn near died. That was 1992, I've been clean & sober ever since (except for pot a couple of times). Never messed with heroin or morphine.

Killed a few brain cells for all my partying but no point in regretting, it's done. I probably wouldn't be who I am today, wouldn't be married to my beautiful wife right now if everything hadn't happened exactly as it did. I just wonder sometimes what I'd have been able to accomplish in my life if I still had those brain cells.

I've done cocaine, LSD, and Ecstasy in my younger years. Absolutely loved Ecstasy. Would never think of doing them now.

Same here, and those are also the only two drugs I use.

I don't pass any judgement on people for their choices, but I never really identified with the drug culture, and I've always been way too much of a self-control freak to do any experimentation.

No. No plans to, no desire to, it's not for me. Never understood it.

Cocaine a few times, speed a couple times, mushrooms once, all 30 years ago. None seemed all that great to me.
