Tried just yesterday:
why?=> I was curious to understand what the hype was all about, I did not feel pressured. I just wanted to..."discover?/understand"?I must say I really enjoyed it actually.o.O But...Not going to do it again any time soon because I only smoked two puffs and that got me high..for ...30 minutes..or less..or more, I was at a birthday party? I drank too but I am not an abuser=> I'm a "taster?" I don't see myself abusing substances simply because I can easily "throw things" away, I drank one sip of something and something else and that's all. I did resist peer pressure during my entire high school life but my virulent resistance turned into curiosity=>what in the world was that hype all about? Now it's done, case closed.
People love to dramatize things though, they think people turn into addicts after the first "puff,sip?".
The only thing I would predict is that people with strong "Ni" like mushrooms and holucinogens, only because some of my friends who vaguely fit the Ni description like them a lot, while my friends that don't fit the Ni description don't like them.
The only drug I abuse somewhat regularly is alcohol. I do have a fair number of prescriptions drugs that I use regularly, for various chronic ailments. I have experimented with other drugs, mostly after my time in the military and frequent drug tests. None of them really appealed to me, so I did not stick with them. I might have stuck with marijuana, but I don't like smoking anything except hookah. Too lazy to try baking it. So ... I'm sticking to alcohol.
I think I should mention something about...drinking and such and cultures because I think there can be wildly different approaches to it.
In my country..we drink all the time, I won't lie, it's really a social thing. nobody drinks because they're "depressed"(on second thought, here too no?Probably just a stereotype), it's the opposite actually.
drinking has a very different connotation.
To be honest I was surprised when I saw that drinking was supposed to be cool for teenagers my age..I guess they like the fact it's "forbidden" to them. It's not forbidden for us where I come from, heck we brew beer with whatever with got, even bananas. Yes they make banana wine where I come from and everyone drinks it, we just don't get really "wasted" as often as people here.
