Years later I ran into him and we had a fun talk, got caught up. At some point I mentioned smoking meth at his place and he said "Oh, I always meant to tell you... when you guys came over to my place and smoked, that was, uh... crack. Usually."

Shrooms are no more dangerous, at all, than LSD.

from personal experience, Shrooms are a slightly different high and don't last anywhere NEAR as long. I've had trips on LSD that last a good 12 or 13 hours straight, and man you're just praying for that stuff to wear off by then.

Well for one, LSD is often quite impure and laced with other, sometimes dangerous chemicals.

Two, high quality LSD is far more potent than shrooms. People who have bad trips are usually not on shrooms(though its completely possible), but on acid. The effects can be overwhelming and scary, and when you're balls out of your mind, its very easy to start panicking or freaking out. And its far more unpredictable than shrooms. I've had a few scares myself, but nothing I'd call a 'bad trip'. Funny enough, my only true bad trip came from smoking salvia! All in all, shrooms are a safer experience as a whole.

It was probably baking powder. It's a hell of a drug, but I haven't touched it since highschool. Shit's too damn expensive. I only do booze, ganj, cigs and caffeine these days. I'm down for the occasional psychedelic, but outside of that, I don't "experiment" with harder stuff anymore.

My parents say I got addicted to morphine after I got my tonsils removed when I was about 5 or 6 years old. They say I would cry and say my throat hurt until I got some. I don't remember it though. That's been a long time ago.

Other than that, I've never used any drugs. I've never even tried a cigarette or touched a drop of alcohol. I'm a pretty boring person.

No way. They are smoked completely differently for one thing. Crack you've gotta melt into some ashes or other substance and wait for it to absord before inhaling. Meth, you've gotta constantly move around on the glass or else you just burn it all up and waste it.

Also, crack lasts like 20-30 minutes. Meth can last for 10+ hours. How on earth did you not know? Dear god.

That doesn't make you boring at all! I'm sure there is some sarcasm there, but drugs don't necessarily have an enhancing effect on the lives of every person who tried them. Nothing wrong with staying away.

I use caffeine daily and I'm a smoker. I drink on the weekends, normally to just past the buzzed stage. I seem to get absolutely hammered about twice a year.
OTC's I take as needed and prescriptions as prescribed. Never had the urge to take prescriptions recreationally since most meds tend to put me to sleep.
I've tired weed multiple times but the result is always bloody nausea so that's out.
I will never try a psychedelic I know my mind well enough to know that would be a Terrible Terrible idea.

For a while I grew my own shrooms. It was pretty good, until I took some on a rainy evening when my friend and I had nothing to do except sit in our apartment, and we also took MAO inhibitors to enhance it. The combination worked too well and I spent most of the evening puking my guts out in the bathroom while hallucinating medusa heads. That sucked.

You would not have gotten high enough from second-hand smoke in a bus with a steady intake of fresh air. And the munchies usually don't set in until anywhere from half an hour to an hour after you've smoked.

Don't mean to come off as rude, sorry, it just sounds pretty unlikely. If that was indeed what happened though, crazy.

I've never touched alcohol or anything illegal, but I get headaches regularly and the only thing that works is the rather large dose of caffeine in Excedrin.

It's very potent on me as well. I'm rarely the verbose type but I cannot shut the fuck up when I have caffeine in my system.

Edit: I should clarify that I stay away from drugs/alcohol due to addiction running in my family, and my siblings being thoroughly fucked over by what started as harmless recreational use.

Also I try not to preach my views, but I REALLY dislike it when my girlfriend drinks. It's tough being sober around tipsy/drunk people.

Smoked bud since I've been 13. So 20 years now.

Done plenty of other stuff, but don't feel like typing it all up. Just typical experimentation type stuff.

Except for Acid. Done that about 200 times.
Shrooms I've also done quite a bit over my life. About 300 times.

I drink heavily when I go out on weekends, but I'm very resistant by now. Weirdly enough, girlfriends have been the ones to get me to smoke weed.

I guess I don't know how to smoke it out of a bowl, because I end up taking massive hits. Two big hits, and I'm good at the beginning, but I quickly feel like I do when I'm sick with alcohol. A bit nauseaus, light-headed and sleepy. I always say I feel like I skipped the fun part of being drunk, and skip right to the "I wanna pass out and I'm drunk as fuck" stage. Don't like it.

Haven't tried anything else. I'm open to do ecstasy with a girl only for the sex while high, and maybe shrooms after reading this thread jaja.

Coke is good stuff but the dead-eyed, snotty nosed look is shit, great high the few times I tried it but not something I'd want to do again.

Smoked weed for a while and it made me greedy and fat and I've tried speed, the first wrap was fine, the second (too much too soon maybe) went bad, I thought I was going to have a heart attack, got sick and started panicking which bought everyone down. Boring each other with thier life stories and butting in conversations made it all extra shitty.

I got hooked on pethadine in hospital after a car crash, amazing drug for just monging to but not something you'd get easily, it's a bit like Tramadol but 100x better.

I don't do anything these days apart from my prescribed painkillers.

I'm pretty sure I wasn't high or hungry as a result of the drugs. I didn't know that at 11 and the paranoia stuck.

My friend and i tried salvia a few months ago, that's weird stuff. I wasn't affected too badly, some things didn't seem right but nothing note worthy. My friend however started dribbling like someone turned on a tap in his mouth and screaming that the trees were moving, was fun for me but he didn't have another hit.

Just alcohol from time to time. I don't smoke cigarettes because like half my family has died from lung cancer. I don't smoke marijuana because one of my ski buddies and my cousin started doing it all the time and now they are drop outs and their lives suck. Say what you want about it not being addictive or whatever, but I just know it is not for me.

I actually haven't had alcohol in a while though because I am recovering from mono heh.

I had a fucked up experience on weed once, I was shaking uncontrollably all over my body and it felt like I was having a seizure. I had to lie on my bed staring at a blank TV, but I couldn't stay in the same place for more than 10 minutes without feeling like violently vomiting, so I had to alternate between the bed and outside every few minutes. This lasted for about 2 hours; I genuinely thought that I was going to have a heart attack or something. No problems since then, have it every other day now.

Tried ecstasy twice and it was amazing both times. Everything became surreal, it was amazing to talk to people and I became ridiculously happy. Stayed up for about 40 hours and only went to sleep because I thought "shit, I just stayed up for 40 hours." I don't want to do this very much though, because of the health effects.

I've had the opportunity to smoke meth, but I saw its mental and physical effects on someone even after only a few months of usage. Fuck that.

You do know you don't have to "smoke" weed if that's what concerns you right?

And the poisonous berries comparison, is one of the worst comparisons I've read. Since when is weed poisonous? Since when can it kill you?
