What would you define a "Druggie" ?
    #3867666 - 03/04/05 02:22 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

"Druggie", such an ugly word, but is it a truthful one?

At my college course i hear this word often directed towards me by my fellow class mates. I do get along with them and most are quite sound people, but they are often very shallow minded and pathetic, 99% of the students in my class haven't much knowledge of drugs and don't really understand the real effects of them, they just listen to the over hyped media and what education has taught them (alot of over rated bullshit). If they want to listen and believe it all, then that's up to them, but they should keep there opinions to themselves and let other people do what they please and not need to think about it twice. The problem is that none of them think like me, I'm 100% open minded while there minds and nailed shut with propaganda.

I wouldn't class myself as a druggie, just because i popped a few pills occasionally, enjoy to trip, smoke weed and likes to experiment a little. Does this make me a druggie? I see myself as a person who like's to experiment and experience new/different things, i have no drug habits, i haven't smoked weed in a few weeks, last time i popped a pill was maybe 7 months ago, the last time i tripped was over 3 months ago!

Maybe i am a druggie but i just don't see it?
Does anyone else experience problems like these?
Maybe were wrong and there right?

How would you define a druggie ?

:confused:

Peace,
Mushie Man  :mushroom2:

By deciding you're not a "druggie", you're just allowing the word to have a hurtful meaning.

Get a t-shirt printed with "DRUGGIE." written on it, wear it with pride.

I'm a druggie.

I haven't met a person in a while who I could look at and say "that person's a druggie" without looking at myself and realizing that I'm just as bad/worse than they are.

I wouldn't worry about what your classmates think. If you think being a "druggie" is seriously messing up your life, then change yourself. If it's not, who cares what they're nicknaming you.

in my mind, a druggie is someone who habitually uses crack, heroin, coke or speed. i smoke thc every day and experiment with occasional hallucinagens and less occasionaly pills, but i do not consider myself a druggie... maybe a pothead, but im in the process of fixing that

It's completely possible to be a well-adjusted intelligent responsible drug user. Unfortunately due to stereotyping and generalization the "druggies" spoil the idea of responsible use for those that can handle it. The smear campaign against drug use and users just reinforces those negative images.

I agree with danlennon3, a druggie is someone who habitually uses crack, heroin, coke or speed. When i hear people being called a druggie just because they smoke weed i find it very shallow minded, just because someone likes to chill out, relax and enjoy themselves, that some how makes them a druggie? It's like walking into a bar and calling everyone alcoholics, just because there drinking a little alcohol. I refuse to label myself a druggie, because deep down i know I'm not. Jonnywax why would you "class" yourself a druggie?

I would class myself a druggie because I use drugs often.

I just have a different take on the word than you, I guess. I don't mind being called a druggie (even though no one really calls me one - at least to my face!).

I've heard crackheads call other crackheads druggies by using this logic. "The dope controls them, they don't control the dope" is a saying I've heard before.. It's pretty sick to see one drug user slam on another one just because they think their drug is better than someone else's, or some similar reason..

and:
"instead of drugs being used only as a tool"

See, with that idea in mind, I think most of us are druggies. How many of you smoke pot or have a beer and honestly don't do it just for the recreational value? I know a couple people will pipe up and say "I smoke pot for reason A and B and I'm not just some dumb pothead" but I bet most of us toking / drinking people just do it to have a good time or unwind. I know I do.

Not to you, but that's the whole point of this thread: defining the word.

To someone who doesn't do drugs, you're probably a druggie. It doesn't really matter.

edit:
also, I only wrote that little part about smoking/drinking because SoK had said "only" as a tool. Though he didn't stress as a tool for what, I think 'feeling good' can be ruled outta the tool arena, since that's precisely what "druggies" use drugs for.

it's a subjective defenition, different from person to person and different when applied to one person or another

i still stand that its someone that cannot control their immediate environment, in which drugs are present and effecting

Q: What's the difference between someone who smokes pot for fun, and someone who uses it as a 'tool'?

A: The guy who uses it as a 'tool' thinks he's better than you.
