If you are depressed it's pretty great to feel good .
never used any, I always considered it a normie hobby because you need at least some contacts and social skills to obtain illegal drugs
>happy normgroid here
>why aren't you all happy like me bro? why use drugs? i just don't get it…can u IMAGINE the health risks..? it's like…gonna make me lazy and im going to skip a gym day can you imagine that fellow wizards?
>but nowadays there's a hell of a lot of other ways to get that same feeling
Can you elaborate?
Yep, there's plenty of new ways to get pleasure nowadays. I've found that a lot of them don't even require money.
For example, I recently joined an online gaming community called Hero Wars. It's free to join and you can build your own army of heroes to fight against other people's armies. It's kind of like an online version of Civil War generals, only with superheroes instead of generals.
Another free option is watching pirated TV shows and movies through torrents. It's really easy to find torrents for just about any TV show or movie these days. I once downloaded a pirated episode of MLP: FiM through torrents. I wasn't sure what to think of it at first, but I ended up really enjoying it.
Still need more? How about adult magazines? You can easily get them for free as well. I'm not exactly sure how to go about getting them, but I'm sure you guys know how to do it.
New ways to get pleasure nowadays:
2.Watching pirated TV shows and movies
3. Getting adult magazines
what kind of drugs have you tried before?
I've experimented with most kinds of drugs there are, but I'll tell you what, crack is definitely the shit.
You are really telling me that you think pirated tv shows, online gaming, porn feel like LSD, DMT, MDMA, heroin?
This thread is completely nonsensical>>175308
you must be underage to not know about the darknet
Honestly, I think a lot of the "pro-drug" crowd doesn't actually listen to evidence when it speaks against them. There's no shortage of studies proving the negative effects of drugs.
However, I will say this: video games can be substitute drugs. Of course, it's not going to be an exact substitute. A person who is addicted to drugs is probably not going to become non-addicted by playing a video game. That being said, video games are a great way to have fun and forget about your problems for awhile.
This is a good thing, because we should be educating people on how to have fun, not giving them boring lectures about how drugs are bad.
Occasional recreational use of drugs has essentially no negative effects, but is fun and profoundly interesting. Studies about dumb normalfag addicts are irrelevant.
Drugs are definitely a plague and I don't mind saying that out loud. From what I've heard though, making and selling drugs is a major industry. We've got a serious problem on our hands when something like this can slip under the radar. My question is this, why hasn't something been done to stop it?
It's obvious that governments don't give a shit about stopping drug use, so it has to be up to the people. The only way to do this though is to have full blown awareness. People have to know about the damage drugs do and they have to know the people using are doing so at their own risk. If enough people start embracing this idea, then drug use will go down.
I'm not saying we should go around breaking windows and beating people with drug paraphernalia, but we should absolutely make damn sure the message gets out there in a severe way. We need to get the fuckers scared.
That's what I'd do.
>>175319> People have to know about the damage drugs do and they have to know the people using are doing so at their own risk. If enough people start embracing this idea, then drug use will go down.
People know the “risks”. Most people today grew up with D.A.R.E and the war on drugs. And even after all that, people still do drugs. People still drink, people still smoke, people still buy their prescriptions. So maybe you should re-evaluate why people still so drugs despite tons of social campaigns and government action. Read up on prohibition and the reasons may become clear.
I vape cannabis and drink alcohol regularly. It temporarily removes anhedonia and also provides pain relief for my bad back. I can play a match of warcraft 3, watch some YouTube videos, some reruns of my favourite cartoons and it all feels fresh and enjoyable. Doing these same things sober quickly makes them boring and I just end up sleeping half the day to minimize the amount of waking life.
Having weed in my drawer is an incentive to get out of bed and do something, anything. Getting high is a huge boost.
Overall vaping weed everyday is still healthier than being obese so whatever.
To each their own though. If you don't like the intoxicating substances I guess it's a blessing since your health won't deteriorate like an addicts.
Not looking forward to getting cirrhosis or whatever in 20-30 years from all the liquor. Oh well.>>175322
Everyone is born with their own dopaminergic min max. For some people, nothing but directly stimulating their pleasure centers will alleviate boredom. For others, sitting in a room quietly and daydreaming can cause anxiety if taken too far. There's nothing else to understand here.
>>175306>I don't understand why people use drugs. I mean sure, they are pleasurable,
Which is obvious.
>But nowadays there's a hell of a lot of other ways to get that same feeling.
>I remember when I first tried drugs, I thought it was pretty fun. It wasn't until later when I realized I was in fucking debt because of it.
Maybe you're a retard who doesn't know how to manage expenditures, and blame it on drugs
>I'm not even going to get into the health risks and the fact that a lot of people who use drugs are fucking idiots, because they'll probably tell me "go fuck yourself" and that'll be the end of it.
People with depression, anxiety use prescription drugs retard. And you sound like you need some too
>>175319>why do drugs exist?
because people know it exists from books, tv, internet and after they try it they realise anything they can do in life pales in comparison to the feeling you get by using drugs so the demand is born. places where drugs are a cultural no no or places with harsh penalties for drug consumption have much more hardcore (and much smaller in number) drug users
drugs are also the main source of income for organized crime worldwide and they are gonna fight it to keep it illegal so they don't have to deal with competition and silly things like caring about the quality of their product
>drugs are worse than hitler
I would argue with enough training anyone can control them but yes some people just lose it and go full hunter-gatherer after they discover the best thing in life. there are ways to reduce harm by regulating the substances but there is exactly a 0.01% chance drugs will go legal within my lifetime so why bother talking about it. drug ban is a big prohibition 2.0 electric boogaloo and politicians who support it are braindead, apathetic or bribed.
the problem with that is drugs are really not as bad as they claim and most of the deaths/injuries created by it can be prevented with proper usage and better product quality so when you shout shit like that you will just get laughed at by drug users and people who don't use drugs will probably not care.
it's very bold to force your morals upon others but it's even bolder to force your morals upon other while being blatantly hypocritical by consuming ethanol and nicotine yourself (I still don't know why people smoke).
anyone saying that they don't understand why people use drugs because they get high on life has never used drugs. It's not the same, nothing in real life comes anywhere close to drugs. Anything you can do in real life that feels good feels 100x better on drugs. At some point you have to ask yourself: what is the point of earning money if you don't use it to feel pleasure?
This. If you think you can substitute the heavenly warmth of a heroin buzz with noobing around on counterstrike or whatever kids play these days, you're a complete moron.
Has anyone here tried kratom?
It affects your opium receptors so it's supposed to be similar to heroin but it's a pretty light drug overall. I would place it somewhere in between coffee and weed. It's too bad that I can't take it everyday because it would build toleration too fast and result in conspitation.
let me guess, you're both atheists
>>175306>nowadays there's a hell of a lot of other ways to get that same feeling
Holy fuck, are you actually 12?>I'm not even going to get into the health risks
I'm pretty sure most of the people who use drugs are aware of the health risks, I personally don't give a fuck.>and the fact that a lot of people who use drugs are fucking idiots, because they'll probably tell me "go fuck yourself" and that'll be the end of it.
Yeah, you're right. Go fuck yourself
Its not drugs, its normalfags.
Who is that "we"?
Drugs are purely normalfag problem, not ours.
And we have no concern about problems of normalfags.
>>175319>norms >doing anything about their problems
There reason why jews are still in power, norms are cowardly, gray mass of sheep.
>>175313>How about adult magazines? You can easily get them for free as well. I'm not exactly sure how to go about getting them, but I'm sure you guys know how to do it.>adult magazines>I'm not exactly sure how to go about getting them
You should have just said porn instead of going for the "adult magazines" line, I don't know how anyone is falling for this bait
>>175313>comparing the pleasure of online gaming with pleasure on psychedelic trips
ok whatever man
