How do you gamers here feel about doing drugs, drinking and smoking? Are you against it? For it?

#2 Posted by mrBRIGHTDAY (44 posts) -

I think they are super cool things that everyone should always do. Especially Children.

I use to smoke but managed to quit. Haven't had a cigarette in over a year and a half now. Drinking is fine if you do it in moderation. I personally don't like the taste of most alcohol though so it's never been an issue for me. The only drug I take is Tylenol for migraines during the school semester.

Got no problem with any of them. I quit smoking a while back, and I don't drink as much as I used to. I'm way into drugs though.

#5 Posted by mosespippy (4746 posts) -

I don't mind drugs or alcohol but I look down on people who smoke.

Sometimes, in order to pursue our desires we must go outside the law. Otherwise we would never be free.

#7 Posted by DFSVegas (366 posts) -

I'm pro Marijuana, Pro Beer, and I actually love cigarettes, even if I quit them a couple months ago. If it wasn't for the hacking cough, I'd still smoke them.

Remember kids, the mind is a terrible place to get caught sober.

#8 Posted by Turambar (7089 posts) -

Not worth my money, and people who smoke or drink to excess are disgusting.

I used to smoke, but managed to quit. I used to be a raging alcoholic between the ages of 18 and 21, but I've cut down and only drink with my friends once every few weeks. Don't use any drugs.

I drink and I smoke, but I haven't done any drugs since highschool

#11 Posted by MikeGosot (3235 posts) -

I don't drink, don't smoke and i don't use drugs, but i love to study about drugs and drinks.

i'm tired of all the viagra commercials. they are creepy.

#13 Edited by tekmojo (2362 posts) -

I'll take all of the above.

#14 Posted by Three0neFive (2298 posts) -

I don't do any of them, nor do I care whether or not others do. Do whatever you want, as long as it isn't hurting me or anyone else.

#15 Posted by canucks23 (1079 posts) -

I drink, but don't smoke or do any other drugs. I'm fine with all of them though when they're not being abused.

#16 Edited by MentalDisruption (1714 posts) -

It's up to the person as far as smoking and drinking goes. None of my business really. The only thing that pisses me off is when people smoke without asking if the other people around are ok with it or without excusing themselves from the area. I drink at parties and other events where other people are doing the same, so I can't really say I'm against drinking as long as it's handled responsibly. As for drugs, depends on the kind of drug. If someones hopelessly addicted to the more severe kinds of drugs then I just feel sorry for them.

#17 Posted by Dany (8018 posts) -

I don't do any of those things.

#18 Posted by AjayRaz (12643 posts) -

i don't do any of those things, and i don't care if anyone does them as long it isn't hurting/affecting me or anyone around them.

#20 Posted by Vinny_Says (5907 posts) -

I got no problem with any of those. I don't quite get the point of cigarettes since they don't alter your state of mind.

Also are you a police?

#21 Posted by Grillbar (1948 posts) -

I'm a smoker and even though i rarely drink is still do sometimes.

I'm pro marijuana, since its less bad then the other other forms of legal substance abuse and if controlled right it can not only raise money for the contry that legalizes it, build jobs, and cut down crime while at the same time reduce the cost to the prisons since its more expensive to hold a person in a prison then it is to put him in a apartment in the same size and all that. so basicly i can only see good things from being pro marijuana. there is ofc the health issue but still its nothing like smoking and drinking.

alcohol is the best and worse of both worlds.

smoking is really fucking stupid, yes as i said im a smoker and i like it, but its just illogical, theres really nothing good about it and i know i sound like a bad psa, but if it had never been legal it proberly never would be again

but smoking a cigar some times its just so relaxing and a pipe is just fantastic, cigarettes are just there to feel my addiction untill i get to a time where i can smoke a cigar or pipe without feeling like a dick, its allso a great way to get extended my break at work with 5min

What makes you state that?
#23 Posted by Vinny_Says (5907 posts) -

@Hardgamer: You asking about drug use in the GB community, and especially now with you asking about me asking about it....

#24 Posted by wefwefasdf (6730 posts) -

Never touched any of those but I don't have a problem with anyone who does as long as they don't bother me.

#25 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5094 posts) -

I don't do any and I don't care what other people do.

#26 Posted by baconbringer (40 posts) -

I personally enjoy marijuana. I've never done any other drugs though except alcohol. I only drink once or twice a month, which I'd say is pretty low for a college student, but I don't really enjoy the way it makes me feel. I don't understand tobacco, I've smoked it a couple times and it doesn't do anything except taste bad. Still though, I think everyone should be free to do whatever they damn well please as long as it isn't hurting others.

#27 Posted by YI_Orange (1209 posts) -

None, and don't plan on ever taking them up. I'm perfectly fine with my mind in the state it's in. I don't have a problem with people who use them though, as long as they aren't harming anyone else.

That said, I've been thinking recently. Can someone explain the appeal to me? The hangovers and vomiting from drinking don't seem worth it.

#28 Posted by Doctorchimp (4157 posts) -

I think people who think about it too much need to grow up.

Just do what you want to do.

#29 Posted by Saethir (355 posts) -

I think people should be able to do whatever they want, as long as they know their limits and can comply with them.

@Vinny_Says: In case you're having any doubt or suspicion, no I am not a cop. I mean, how could I? Besides, being a cop is undeniably challenging & life-threatening as well.
#31 Posted by TheFreeMan (2712 posts) -

Don't do any of them, have no problem with people doing all of them, so long as it doesn't hurt other people. Although when I hear that someone's a smoker, especially somebody I'm friends with or a family member I get a little sad because, you know, cancer and all that (and it's taken it's toll on more than one of my relatives), but I never try to preach to them about it cause that seems pretty rude to me.

#32 Posted by No0b0rAmA (1511 posts) -

I'm fine with smokers but I dislike alcoholics and seriously hate drug users.

#33 Posted by JasonR86 (9994 posts) -

I think people can do whatever they want as long as no one else gets hurt (this isn't always the case with drugs and alcohol mind you). I think both drugs and alcohol can be used moderately by fully functional, successful people. I also think that it is much easier to slip into misusing drugs and alcohol then it is to use them responsibly. I think that people who chose to use drugs and alcohol have every right to do so but must be ready to deal with the consequences of their actions if there are any (especially for illegal drugs).

You have to tell him if you are! Otherwise it's entrapment! (but not really - Police are allowed to lie to you during the course of their job)

I already told him I'm not a Cop. I mean, Would I lie to you?

i feel fine thanks

#37 Posted by demontium (5084 posts) -

I don't think they are for everyone, but the government should really cool it on marijuana restriction. People should be able to choose there, and also I think if the drinking age was 18, there would be a lot less problems in the area of teen drinking.

#38 Posted by Phoenix654 (283 posts) -

I don't do any of the above (with the exception of medicinal drugs, which virtually everyone does), but I'm not opposed to them. Far be it from me, a person who's never had a drop of alcohol, smoked a single cig or done any drug that wasn't sold in a store or prescribed by a physician, to tell people what to do with their bodies. If you wanna drink, drink and do it responsibly. If you like smoking, smoke, just don't blow it in my face or act offended when I tell you that you smell like you've licked a monkey's ass. If you want to throw caution to the wind and expand your mind with recreational substances, go for it. Understand there are laws in place against it in certain areas, but do what you like, I don't care. The second you endanger another person though, then I will try to step in or alert the authorities.

Drops two pennies on the table.

#40 Posted by SirPsychoSexy (1353 posts) -

I think people should be able to do whatever they want, as long as they aren't hurting anyone else. So I am for it.

#41 Posted by the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG (4311 posts) -

Theyre personal choices so I feel indifferent about them.  Oh and moderation is key I guess.   
The only thing I dont get is smoking cigarettes.  The fumes smell terrible, at least marijuana smoke has an almost aromatic smell to it....  

#42 Posted by bibamatt (1123 posts) -

As a straight edger of 8 years... Pretty against them. Each to their own though, I guess. Just makes me sad when drink and drugs are directly responsible for hurting families and putting people in danger. We've only got one life and it's an awesome one, I'd rather see it through sober eyes while I'm able.

#43 Posted by BraveToaster (12636 posts) -

I think cigarettes are gross, I'm too scared to try drugs, and the only alcohol that I drink is Land Shank and Corona, but I haven't had a drink in months. I do a lot of stupid shit when I get drunk and I don't want anyone wasting a good night looking after someone who can't handle liquor properly.

#44 Posted by bibamatt (1123 posts) -
@demontium No way, the drinking age is 18 in the UK and we have just as much shit with kids (14,15,16) getting fucked up. I wish it was 21 here.

#49 Posted by SMTDante89 (2722 posts) -

I can't stand the taste/smell of either alcohol or smoke, so those are out, and I don't feel the need to do drugs. That's about all I have to say about them.
