    Default I don't need drugs.

    I don't need caffeine, I make sure I get enough sleep. Even if it means going to bed right after dinner.

    I don't need sleeping pills, Ken Burns is on Netflix Instant Watch.

    I don't need alcohol, well....maybe I do sometimes. Damn it, I was so close.
    In all these papers we see a love of honest work, an aversion to shams, a caution in the enunciation of conclusions, a distrust of rash generalizations and speculations based on uncertain premises. He was never anxious to add one more guess on doubtful matters in the hope of hitting the truth, or what might pass as such for a time, but was always ready to take infinite pains in the most careful testing of every theory. With these qualities was united a modesty which forbade the pushing of his own claims and desired no reputation except the unsought tribute of competent judges.

    I've been drinking coffee since I was seven.

    Was on call for nine years. So I've taken calls at dinner, in the shower "Yeah the connection is a little echo-e", at 3am, at the cinema, on my birthday and on my wedding day.

    Two kids, one who is currently teething.

    So sleep patterns weren't always controllable but coffee, water and exercise dosing certainly helped.

    As for alcohol - Baileys makes a really decent substitute adult cough medicine and emergency milk for cereal.

    My parents once told me that they got me to drink cow's milk by mixing in some coffee. I'm also told that I got drunk at a wedding when I was two: I had wandered off and found the drinks meant for the adults at the reception and apparently rather liked the taste of some of them.

    I don't get overly excited about a "healthy" lifestyle.

    I like to party from time to time, bit of cocaine isn't that much of a problem as long as you don't do it too much, great with sex. A bit of cannabis, nice to chill with. I do want my glass of wine daily though. Everything in moderation.

    As one druggie poet put it:

    Lifting me up like a garage door
    I need to feel it when the drug starts coming on
    I know you Lord are a jealous lord
    I know the tablet is your competition
    And I need for you to be reasonable
    I need for you to be reasonable

    Everything in moderation. I don't need them either, but sometimes they're useful or nice to have.

    I was just out partying (dancing salsa) and only drank water and coke. Now coke has some coffeine but I really drink it only for the sugar, which is my real addiction.
    I don't even like the taste, I just want some energy.

    I don't understand the people who use that crap, I think they WANT to die. In the Russia and eastern Europe they have something that's even more horrible, 'croc'. Look it up.

    I did that on my own out of curiosity yesterday, the pictures it threw up for krokodil addicts were yummy.

    Nothing I'd post here or would recommend to people with a sensible stomach. The meth addict above looks healthy in comparison.

    As for the people who take it, they don't want to die from what I heard. Once saw a few short interviews of former addicts and they simply said they didn't believe the scare stories or thought it was really rare since noone in their club looked like this. Of course noone in their club looked like this because people who look like this can't go clubbing anymore. It's what you get for thinking the government always just wants to spoil your fun.

    Yeah, I learned that a few months ago, how a lot of german soldiers were addicted to Pervitin as it was called. Package just seems to say it keeps you awake, like it's relatively harmless otherwise...
    They also said US Air Force soldiers still have to sign contracts which demand that they take performance enhancing drugs whenever it is necessary for them to perform.

    Yes, that is what I meant, the pictures are not pretty. And there are still people who take it because the pictures are obviously just government propaganda to spoil young peoples' fun, right?

    I drink Coffee for the taste of it (and I really drink a cup of coffee about once or twice a week) and I drink alcohol on an even more limited basis. 2cl of good whiskey ever other month or so and a beer or Radler whenever I feel like it... never been drunk during my whole life... And never missed it...

    We are all addicted to something though, I think... The Internet can be a "drug" just as computer games, the TV, fitness or whatever you can think of (over)doing

    Worth saying that he already looked like 40, meth-guy I mean. He doesn't look like someone who is 25 to begin with

    He looks more than 40 in the last pic, heck he looks like an old man. Would of guessed 27 or so in the first.

    How are you people estimating ages? By what principle?

    Whenever I look at a human, I can only place them within a 20-year range, or at minimum 10.

    Unless they are 10-15, in which case it's a 5-year range.

    It's mainly used in the poorer parts of Russia, where there's already a heroin addict in almost every family. When they can't pay the heroin any more only then do they tend to use it. They usually already are messed up completely or even fearing death. And of course some just are stupid. Vice has a good documentary on it, but thankfully with almost none of the overly shocking imagery of 'long time' user. (You rarely live longer than a year or year and a half)
