Alcohol and drugs effect the mind to make one perceive themselves as different than normal. And they do the same to my mind as I am in fact human! Ha!
I'm okay with drugs as long as they're used in moderation. I don't like binge drinking - this leads to stories that cannot be told as they are neither remembered nor good experiences in the first place. I hold the same views to every other drug (except aspirin).
BTW, I wrote this rather drunk.
"Poor bastard. Wait 'till he sees the bats. "

Funny, drinking parties seem to just involve passing out, vomit and nobody really listening to the shitty music that's likely playing
Is that sane?
I'm going to have to second that. Maybe to some people that sounds like "sane" fun but for me personally I can think of a lot more interesting ways to spend my time that actually involve bettering myself in some way or learning something.
Getting "shitfaced" sounds like a quick way to start doing reckless stupid things with your life if you're not careful. I wouldn't know since I've never drank or done drugs, but I see plenty of people literally ruining their lives with DUIs, PAULAs, possession charges after a routine traffic stop. I have some musician friends that like to smoke pot and do LSD. They always have some of that shit on them and as a result I don't let them in my house/car or go over their house/car. When they're not sober or carrying their stuff on them they're always paranoid they're going to get stopped by the law. When they're sober they've got headaches, can't remember anything, sick all the time. Yeah that sounds like loads of fun. To each his own, but I personally don't find that "sane"...
What type of NT are you, and how does alcohol affect you?
I'm an INTJ, and when drunk, I become one with the universe, rather than conquering it.
Have you tried any other mind-altering chems? What effects did they have?
I don't drink... anymore.
It might be " fun" at that moment; that is probably because you cant properly assess the situation you're in. Does it matter whether it WAS fun or not? You probably wont remember 80% of your night, and you will probably remember feeling sick, or throwing up the entire night. Getting a hangover the next day is not much fun either. Now don't get me wrong. I rarely, if ever, got hangovers, so that was never an issue for me.
I can't comprehend how people drink just for the heck of drinking. Beer tastes like the smell of wet-socks. Alcohol tastes...well.. like alcohol.. Wine is bitter 80% of the time.. etc.
I found that the only time I drank is when there is a party I have to go to ( like someones moving away party, etc), and I'm surrounded my brain dead idiots. I then take on the saying " if you can't beat them, join them".
I drank only to withstand people around me. Since I realized this months ago. I have stopped. I can have just as much fun with people without needing to drink, I just had to lower my intellectual expectations of them when they're drunk.
I've stopped "partying" you can say. I rarely go out , or enjoy social interactions anyways; so it's not really a difficult move for me to make.
When I DID drink. I was really energetic, wild, and out of control. I said what was on my mind more than I already do IRL. I got in arguments over peoples rudeness all the time. I did things I wouldn't attempt doing when sober.
Basically, I became an idiot, someone who I don't want to be.
If I was hanging out with my best friends, I wouldn't even CONSIDER drinking. I'd have a blast just being around them; A lot of people don't seem to get that.
No, I've never tried drugs, of any sort. unless you count Tylenol and Advil.
