    There was this other guy a while ago who some of us thought was a troll but somehow he didn't seem like your "typical" kind of troll and he had some people confused. A half-troll I guess you could say ;) .
    So, even though I had my suspicions I thought I'd give this latest troll the benefit of the doubt first.

    I understand that and I apologize if I've offended any of you guys but there are some people I just have no respect for. :(

    Exactly. As long as it targets the right person. But what do you know about honesty?

    Thought I'd bring up the Taboo subject of hard drug use among Punks, how do you feel about it, have you ever had a drug problem, do you look down on fellow Punks that do, what about mariguana or alcohol abuse? Is one o.k. but not the other? sorry to punkmar for going off topic this is original question

    So I've lost another of my best friends to drug abuse, yesterday morning the lifeless body of my ex-band member Charlie was found at 6 am, he apparently passed away on Christmas, alone on a freezing night in his room...a lifelong battle with heroin addiction finally claimed his life in the form of Hepatitis C and kidney/liver failure...Charlie was a brilliant musician and song writer and one of the last local original punks... I am beyond heartbroken.

    I cut out nicotine and the occasional use of addies. The addies mainly due to almost being shot back in May 2011 by a nut job on bath salts packing a 12 gauge.

    As for nicotine, Put my foot down after I was doing a can and a half of skoal a day.

    Still drink occasionally and do the once in a blue moon weed and psychedelics.

    i wouldn't really consider psy's "hard drugs"... maybe it's because they have a special place in my heart (and by brain ;) ), but still... drugs like coke and heroin come to mind when someone says "hard drugs," not tobacco/nicotine and lsd. or was this threat turned into a general drug use thread?

    Gee, punkmar, I'm sorry for your loss. It's sad that he died alone like that on christmas. It's obviously no-one's fault and nothing anyone could have prevented. I guess the drug made him shut himself off to the world and to its people? That's what addiction tends to do to you eventually (I hope this doesn't sound insincere or anything cos I know what it feels like to lose a friend). Really sorry about that, man!

    I wouldn't put them in the same category as your typical addictive hard drugs, some prefer not to even call them "drugs" at all but rather "entheogens", but they can still be pretty "hard"-core or "heavy" substances. But I don't think anyone has ever died as a direct result of taking them (?)

    I've heard a few too many people say that it's punk to do heroin. That fucking makes me sick. I don't look down on people for doing any substance, it's your own choice what you put in your body, but to say that it's punk and glorify heroin in that sense is really disgusting.

    I'm really sorry for posting this without having read your bad news. I want to apologize if I sounded condescending in any way. Drug addiction is a real battle and I suppose what I meant by what I said is it shouldn't be glorified. No disrespect to your friend or to anyone having to battle the terrible beast.

    Also disclaimer - I'm far from a straightedge myself but don't like going into detail on the internet ;)

    Punks n' Drugs

    Whats your personal opinion on drugs in punk music (or in general) and culture and do you think that drugs are a large part of punk culture? I personally only drink and smoke weed, mostly due to the accessibility of both, plus theirs not much else to do. :ecouteurs: :beer: :ecouteurs:

    I would like to add that personally i have seen the living horror story's of "hard drug" addiction. My good friends sister looks like a Jew that was just liberated from a concentration camp, she a heroin addict you see. Other than the walking skeleton that is the physical embodiment of everything that can go wrong without getting yourself killed when you're drug fucked, i haven't seen much of a negative effect on anyone else i know. I know meth heads, pill sniffers, coke heads, acid eaters and shroom farmers and yet only one of them is completely fucked by drugs. I think it has alot to due with the persons personality, like im a binger, some people like to do shit everyday but can stop anytime, some need an occasion to celebrate and others just NEED to do it all day everyday. I go awhile without doing anything, i save up some money and then get completely fucked for days, just smoking and drinking until i run out of money then i save up more money and repeat the process over again. I know that if i were to get into anything i could OD on id be dead in a week, i just don't have that much self control when it comes to these kinds of things since i always just keep using more and more and more until i pass out or run out of stuff. My friends seem to be able to control their habits (Except Holocaust Heroin chick) and i do to, so i see no problems with various substances being used by people for whatever it is they want, medicinally or recreational use, except opiates , fuck them :beers:

    Drugs, A tool to escape from reality, myself as a straight edge Anarchist say no to drugs myself, but that doesn't mean i have nothing against people tripping or something they can do whatever they want with their lives, but still i see from a political point of view any kind Drugs or Alcohol or whatever is a distraction for our cause, i don't like the way that some of my comrades in the political youth party i'm in, party all night long and forget what they really want to do, like myself i became straight edge as a rebellion because of this new trend called distraction for change.
    I have no problem that people are having fun, hell i i like going to parties myself, but that shoulnd't still distract us from our final goal as anarchists that abolishing the state and create a new anarchistic society
