Nope - never had an interest in drugs (aside from alcohol... an occasional glass of wine is something nice), but nothing that's to be smoked, sniffed, eaten or injected...

There are more fun ways to ruin your health if you're really into that...

Smoke: everyday
Alcohol: "social drinker"
Drugs: a looooong time ago I tried marihuana. Nothing happened. Then I tried again, again and again.
Nothing happened: I wasn't more relaxed, happy, inspired, etc etc etc.
So I decided not to try anymore; what for?
The rest of the drugs (hads drugs): nothing; I think I'm afraid of getting used to them.

Alcohol - Biweekly
Caffeine - Multiple times a day. I'm quite sure my blood could be utilized as an espresso substitute
Nicotine - Never
Illicit Drugs - After seeing the effect they have had on people I care about, including members of my family, and after rooming with someone my sophomore year who did heroin, ecstacy, marijuana, acid, cocaine, and crack, I'd say that anyone who does illicit drugs is a damned fool.

As for Marihuana, while it may be true that "Black Afghan" and other weeds from the 1970s can still be considered "soft" drugs, modern-day hemp is often genetically manipulated and up to 2.5 times stronger than "Black Afghan", the strongest weed available in the 70s.

I know that this data is vague, but it gives you an idea how much things have changed since smoking pot was a form of protest, and not an intoxicating addiction.

Marihuana: yes, but I haven't inhaled
other than that: no, and I will not

conclusion: I will stick to good old German beer and from time to time I will have a Guinness.

HELL, NO!!! About 25 years ago, I was handed a marijuana cigarette at a party. One inhalation and the resulting nausea put an end to ever thinking about pot again. I'd never even tried to smoke tobacco, never saw a reason to start. To me, it would be like running into a burning room and inhaling the smoke. Why would any sane person want to do THAT? I did drink pretty well for awhile but it got old and I quit, tired of how much it screwed me up. I DO coffee, if that counts; yeah, I guess caffeine is legitimately a drug, though legal.

I don't smoke cigs or cigars, but I do drink alcohol occassionally (may be once- or twice-fortnightly). I have tried cannabis (in the name of science, you understand) but didn't like it.

I've danced with Mary Jane a few times. I haven't in a while though.

I don't smoke cigarettes directly, nor will I ever. I get my fix from of the considerate people around me that do smoke.

Alcohol... once a week on average. Usually its one or two beers on a Friday after work.

Drugs??, well being a teenager in the 70's all I can say is tried many.. Pot, Acid, PCP and coke (back in the day when "crack" was something you fixed in your driveway..

Mostly the"art" scene was into pot and coke and my choice being a little pot and little coke and a ton of Richie's from the Continental Bloody Marys.. The acid and PCP were a bit too scary for me to repeat as they scared the fecal matter out of me.

Then one fine day when I was about 23 i dropped out of the scene so to speak and stopped all the illegal drug use... I still have dreams about the blood marys though...

The above said, the mid 70's to early 80's (81-82) were a more innocent time, AIDS? heck back in that time AIDS was a chocolate diet pill (no joke it was ), now I look back and say "dang I sure was an idiot" (I know some may say what do you mean that you WERE an idiot). The thought of my daughter doing 1/4 of the things I did as a teen scares the crap out of me..

Oh well of to check if I have any blood mary mixer in the fridge...

Despite being raised by VERY liberal parents, I just never understood the mystique of drugs.

I have never tried ANYTHING. I have never even taken one puff of a regular cigarette. To make matters more unbelievable, I have never tasted coffee.

There is no judgment here ... I'm not worried about whether people experiment or not. I'm just surprised (at myself) that I've made it 40+ years without trying anything.

I never did drugs growing up, but all my friends did. I was raised in a very strict home with three sisters. My father was the type of man who watched every move I made and my mom was the same.

I do have the occasional drink now and I do go out sometimes and just tie one on. But I can take it or leave it!!!

I'm with Concord977...I've never done drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or coffee...and am glad. I once met a guy who did acid once (I think) and he was never normal again. Why destroy yourself like that? Life is short and tough enough as it is, why intentionally screw yourself over? Anyway, I have been tempted to drink coffee--it smells very good...but I won't.

Back in the seventies I mainlined smack for a few years. In the early eighties I switched to coke and booze. When crack hit the seen in the 90's I was strung out for a long time. But in 1992 Bill Clinton got elected and I became a liberal democrat and gave up the drugs for good. Thanks Bill !!!

I never tried anything other than Alcohol. My friend smoked weed in the same room and car as me. And I tried those yellow jackets pills, but those were not for getting high, I took them because I was bloody tired.

Still drink alcohol, tea and coffee.

Quit smoking in January after 7 happy years...!

As to other drugs...

Tried marijuana and really hated it. Like really. A lot.

Tried a variety of other things, and enjoyed myself immesely!

I rarely have any drugs anymore - that phase of my life is virtually over.

Cigarettes (tobacco) : 3 when I was 15, stopped immediately, because I did not like it and did not see the point to it.

Alcohol : from time to time, though I rarely really get pissed.

Cafeine : daily at work

Pot, weed... : never tried (hopefully) never will.
Other illegal drugs : heck, no (yuck)

A.net : daily

And, er... WellHung, I might be a prude, but from what I read of your posts, I prefer remaining that way.

I have never had even a try of illegal drugs, thank God.

I have never smoked tobacco. When I was about 3, I showed interest in a houseguest's smoking. She moved as if to give me a try and just then, my grandmother came into the room and screamed! I will note, however, that when I was 11, I had a toy bubble pipe and my friend filled it with fake grass or something (for model train landscapes, I think). He lit it and offered me a puff. I tried it and choked.

Alcohol: I consume rarely and moderately. I would never set out to get drunk, however, I've had a maximum of 3 beers a few times (at very friendly friends' urging) which could get me a bit too tipsy for my taste.

I used to have a serious, serious drug problem. If it was drugs, I'd do it. Sleep was not ever an option.

I woke up (after being passed out for days) once and decided it was stupid, and I've been fine since.

That part of my life is over, but I find it to have been an extremely valuable experience. I'm not saying that I'd avoid the extremely rare recreational use of certain drugs, but there are a lot that I just will not do because I liked them too much.

At University I did pot, speed, cocaine and ecstacy but I was never tempted by the real hard drugs like cocaine etc.

I did this for about 6 months, which led to a serious mental problem which I was fortunate to overcome. I haven't touched anything other than alcohol and cigarettes for 7 years now
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?
