Minor alcohol usage, but thats it.
[QUOTE]I'm loopy enough as it is and outside chemicals really mess with me physiologically. Everyone thought I was on drugs during high school, so I imagine if I were a regular user I would appear... normal?[QUOTE]
alcohol makes me feel normal... weridly enough... I feel I articulate better while intoxicated. he he
but seriously i my mind runs a mile a minute so drinking does slow me down and I feel I can communicate with others better...
Weed has been in my life for a while, and high always changes for me... usually though I just get intuitive and my Fe gets cut out... I seem dead and cold to others while inside my mind is racing... I've heard it called hypersensitive or hyperthinking.
I have also tried X but liked it way too much and found I was binding myself to people I did it with... it is still love but it is discovered differently...
It does make me feel eternally bonded to people. It fades if I stop seeing them often. which I did so I could stop using it.
Shrooms might visually show you some problem in life...
INFJ's -- listening to what other people see on shrooms might help out your Ni. I am such a visual person them telling me about what they saw on shrooms can help me realize things about people.
Mushrooms are my favorite... I would do those again.
i try to keep drugs to a minimum in my life. I have heard it helps with our intuition to keep our bodies healthy.
Everything in moderation I guess or not trying at all.
Ecstasy is always a wonderful experience, but these days it's hard to find something that isn't cut with crap, well where I live anyway.
My Acid experiences were boring and funny enough I actually fell asleep whilst tripping, which others around me found bizarre.
I've never been 'big' about Weed because I usually think about how stupid I feel whilst high, instead of enjoying the experience. But Weed + Sex = A plus from me, anyday.
I overdid my drug taking and it's taken me about 4 months to recover, only because my dad sent me off to another country, went to a psychologist and because I'm now taking an SSRI. I can't say that I'm 100% over taking drugs altogether, yet at the same time, I can't see myself experimenting again, anytime soon. I guess I'm an open book at the moment and if the opportunity comes along and It feels right, then sure, I will use them, however I'm in a different mindset as to where I was a few months back. I'd like to try new things for spiritual purposes, not just for the hell of it and because it's there.
I'd love to try DMT and Salvia Divinorum. Who knows, maybe soon.
Like others have said, having a good mindset is a good idea. I think it's also very important that the person using doesn't use drugs to make themselves feel happy or to wash away problems. Use for the experience rather than use to become happy.
Honestly I don't/wouldn't really go out of my way to seek out drugs and alcohol but I admit I am curious. I would never even consider doing hard drugs like heroin or cocaine, they seem way too risky/pointless. The only things I would try are alcohol, weed or (huge maybe) MDMA in social situations, see what kind of experience weed gives me with creativity, and possibly something like salvia or shrooms just to see where they take me. Like I said before I'm not in any huge hurry to do drugs or anything, education definitely comes first (even though I have no idea what I'm going to do with it yet), this is just a list of what I'd be willing to experiment with for the experience, say throughout the next 15 years or something, if it wouldn't have any major negative effects on my life.
Never used drugs, alcohol, or tobacco and never will.
Uncontrolled drugs are horrible. They could kill anyone very quickly if they are stronger ones or have an affect on one's short-term memory and mental health if they are the weaker ones. They can also get one in trouble with the law. I believe in limited prescription medication and over-the-counter medication like aspirin or cold medicine. Many other drugs are potentially dangerous. And at the very least, expensive and illegal.
It's important to remember that we must have moderation in all things. I see some people were at a very young age when they first consumed various powerful psychadelic substances, it may not have been the wisest of ideas as psychadelics will change how your brain works. It's not neccisarily a bad thing, but many people aren't equipped to handle them. Flashbacks :) they will happen to you trippers at some point or another.
I used to be extremely against any drugs, I was all no I'm not doing that and that makes me a better person xP
until I got kinda depressed/bored with my life (for reasons that are a long story)
but being depressed like that made me want to experiment, it made me want to actually live somethings out rather than just accepting other people words for it....in everything
so I do not drink on a regular basis but when I do I practically binge drink, the effect it has on me is so comforting, it's like, I completely forget what ever I was analyzing in my head, and I can only focus on what's happening right in front of me, I no longer pause when I talk it is easy for me to collect my thoughts and say how I feel/ whatever I want....I guess for other people, this would be when they are afraid they will say something they shouldn't -I don't have that problem, I've never said something worth regret while intoxicated
it does two things to me, it depends how I feel
it can make my mind blank, I love this, I love being able to just.....exist, no constant thinking, no worrying no stress, just being alive
or it can make me fall so deep in thought that I am no longer really aware of what's going on around me for a little while until I finish my thought...or until someone snaps me out of it
the first couple times I used it - I did experience that uncontrollable laughing, I actually enjoyed it....a lot...I have no idea why I couldn't stop laughing but It was still nice to laugh
....it also heightens my sense of touch....
