    Drugs are often talked about in the punk/anarcho scene but recovery from drug addiction is rarley talked about. Im going to keep my opinions out of this for now to avoid a bias in this thread. What are your opinions on AA/NA?

    i used to go, but i have managed to stay sober without it. i think it's good for those who actually want to use it, and choose to be there, but for those who are forced by law or parents to be there it wont do a damn thing but maybe help people make new connections and help others relapse.

    Again for those who are serious about recovery i think it is a good thing, and you can meet some great people there and build support systems and such. unfortunatly from my experience, too many guys use it as a place to meet and score with girls who are vulnerable.

    I don't do any drugs other than drinking and sleep medication(it's a horrible addiction, but I'm a severe insomniac). I'm also interested in trying hallucinogens for spiritual reasons, but not for recreational usage. I've never really been addicted to anything, it just doesn't seem to be in my nature. I've been through periods of cocaine and various pill fascinations, but I've always been able to quit easily. I don't see any problem with marijuana, other than the obvious health considerations from inhaling any kind of smoke, but most other common drugs are unnatural and can be devastating. Rehabiliation should always be completely free and available to anybody who needs it, but it shouldn't be something that is ever court ordered. I'm currently of the opinion that all drugs should be legalized, that it's the individual's decision. However, I haven't thought about this too deeply or payed attention to statistics on drug-induced crime, it's just something that hasn't been involved in my life enough to give thought.

    Try Salvia
    Depending on where you are it could still be legal in your state
    they only just banned it a year ago in illinois
    if you do it right, its the trip of a lifetime and only lasts 5 minutes
    serious mind fuck. its less harmful than cigarettes too.

    I've tried three times, but didn't have anything like hallucinations. I mainly had a hard time controlling my actions, and lasted about 10-15 minutes for me. I probably need to get my hands on the stronger shit. I forget what designations ours had.

    Never tried it, maybe I should, maybe I shouldn't. I don't know.
    Could be very worthwhile, or it could very well be the same way it works for me with any other gathering of people I 'have' to attend.

    WELL IT'S GOT GOOD POINTS AND BAD...
    PEOPLE WHO ARE COMING OF SUBSTANCES WHICH THEY WHERE DEPENDENT UPON TO ABUSE TEND TO BE VERY "EDGY" AND NERVES WITH EVERYTHING.

    i FOUND ALOT OF USEFUL DATA AND EXPERIENCE WITH AA, ALTHOUGH THROUGH IT ALL I FOUND THE MAIN WORKABILITY OF THE PROGRAM IS PASSIFICATION. PLUS A DEPENDENCY UPON THE BOOK.

    ALTHOUGH PEOPLE HAVE THE FREE WILL TO GO, SOME ARE "ORDERED" TO ATTEND AA MEETING AND PURSUE THE PROGRAM OF THEIR OWN ACCORD USUALLY FOR THE STATE, TO GATHER SIGNATURES OF ATTENDANCE... WITH LACK OF EVALUATION AND PERHAPS ACCOUNTABILITY.

    ALTHOUGH I HAVE FINISHED WITH SUBSTANCE ABUSE BUT OF MY OWN RESEARCH, TRIAL AND ERROR... LIFE IS ROUGH, BUT OF COURSE

    IT'S ALSO GOOD FOR COMMUNITY, TRUST, AND OTHER PARANORMAL THINGS WHICH GO WITH THAT COURSE, BUT I CAN SAY THEIR IS A WHOLE UNIVERSE OF WAYS OUTTA SHIT... TAKE CARE. AND REMEMBER PLANTS CAN HELP...

    someone who I know very well who used to be on speed and heroin and who i thought for sure would die before he was 40 is now clean and getting healthy through NA and AA. (and he's past 40 now :) Like the saying at the end of every meeting... It works if you work it, it sucks if you don't. (meaning people who go to meetings who don't work it, not people who don't need it in the first place.)

    when i was in high school the drug councilers,social workers,teachers,princibles every one seemed to be trying to get me to go to drug counceling with the school. it got really anoying. i understand why they did it. me going to school on a 3 day speed bender or on shrroms or drunk. i had no problem doing what ever was offered to me. that was high school. i chilled out a bit since then. but i remember teachers felt sorry for me so i would never get sent to the office when they could see i was drunk or the whole desk was shaking cuz i was on speed or wtv. they seemed to eather to notice that getting me in trouble was poitless. or they just did not care i dont know. but they tried from grade 8 to 11 trying to get me to see sme one. i shot them down each time.

    i dont see those programs being anyhelp. i choose what goes in my body. anything these people tell me are things i know alreafy, i like to know what im taking before i take it. i have spent hours reserching that shit. i chose to do what i wanted to do. the 10 steps to me are a joke. if some one really does not want to do anything they wont do it. i dont know quite how to explane what im saying....

    on a side note from that. my current love is acid....i dont know why any one if they had a choice would ever do shrooms or salvia in place of acid. its so much of a cleaner trip then shrooms. and salvia is just fucking chaos for 10 mins. i have seen more people have bad trips on salvia then shrooms and acid put together. god i cant wait for acid tri next week. just need to make sure i eat this time. 4 hits of acid and a 24 of bud is badddd new on an empty stomac..trust me on that one

    i unno i have never had a bad trip. the worst i ever had was the acid was just really taking hold. that first 10 mins of pure madness as your brain fights to keep control. and my buddy put on metalocolips. that dethklok show. it was the first time i ever saw it...i was trippin balls and there was intense metal music playign peopel being killed and all kinds of crazy metal shit was going down. i was sitting in a rocking chair across his house trippin balls,. but i would not count it as a bad trip at al. just a bit to intense for my brain.

    also i cant go outside when im tripping. i dont know. i get this huge anxiety of peopel watchign me. i think its due to the fact that im so used to carrying around large amounts of drugs. because i have been sellign all kinds of differnt kinds of shit since grade 9. pills, weed, shrooms, big of blow but i got out of that fast... i have become naturily paranoid a la max. and the acid magnifies it 20x. only time i have gone outside is to go and steal a bunch of smurf gnome things. hahah good times. but me and my buddy have a plan. when were tippin balls to go to the park and SCREAM!!!!! as loud as we can.

    Haha, I had a similar experience but instead of Dethklok it was the Addams Family movie. I think it also had to do with the sun setting while I was coming up, but I also wouldn't call it a bad trip, I just had to regain focus.

    Also, I'd agree that AA/NA can probably help if you;re not forced to go. I've never been to either so that's just an assumption I guess.
    It always sounds like people addicted to hard drugs can't do it without groups like that but I had a buddy who was accicted to crack-cocaine and he got himself off of it by "converting" to weed.

    the worst (not bad just boring) acid trip i had i couldn't leave my friends house, so we watched young einstein and some episodes of this sitcom wings... i stil;l tripped but i was bored as all fuck. I had a bad mushroom trip once though... ended up in the hospital because it was so bad i thought i was dying. I've had anxiety problems ever since then...
