What constitutes a drug problem?
    #3946164 - 03/20/05 10:10 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

What constitutes a drug problem?

Do YOU consider yourself to have one?
Do you have a problem with drugs?
You may choose only one
Yes, and I cannot quit without help
Yes, but it's within my grips of control
No, I party once and a while
No, drugs are for losers

I think if a drug problem is within your grips of control, then it's not really a problem. Most who would accpet they have a problem but they are in control of it are probably in denial.

Exactly man.... Let's look at it like this though. I smoke pot everyday. Do I have a problem with it? Hell no! I can go days or month without it, I just choose not to. I have never smoked cigs in my life, and I'm a social drinker. Pot is the one thing that keeps me balanced.

First we should define correctly what exactly a "drug" is.

Abusing a drug (ie using it too frequently, in too great an amount each time, or with the wrong disposition and timing) is a problem in my view.

Drug addiction (when you literally depend on a substance) is also a negative thing do get involved in.

Using a drug when you feel within yourself that you should not (even if it doesn't necessarily cause a bad physical sensation) is not good.

Well then you dont have a problem!

**The definition of addiction is continueing to engage in a substance or activity despite negative consequences.

When u put a substance above friends and family. When you find the only friend syou have are the ones you do drugs with. When you dont do what needs to be done. When you cant remember what it was like to be sober.

Fore me that was when i was 15, after that i hardle know who i was, i had dreams and interests but they all got set aside along with all the above. Im not talking hard drugs eather, just booze and weed, though a year of opiates meaning percocets also left me in a whole, but that was do to an accident.
When you cant get up and go out without rolling a joint you got to say to ur self something isnt right. Cuz you have to use a crutch to make the day go by, life is to short to live on cloud nine, after all what so fun about it when do it all the time. I realised i have enough birthdays to velebrate enough holidays also, no need to party every day, im 23 now and im ready to start living.

I don't think so, but there are some who would disagree. Those people are mainly people who know next to nothing about drugs, and consider anyone who does any drug except for alcohol and maybe pot to have a drug problem.

I would consider it a problem when doing drugs interfers with your life in an adverse way.

yes, but its within my control.

even though its in my control, i still consider it a problem because i often feel shit if i havn't smoked a joint in the last few hours.

I disagree here. I've often used marijuana excessively (i.e. to the point where it detracts from other parts of my life; academics, interpersonal relationships), but I've proven to myself that I can take sabbaticals. The drug has become a problem for me, but the problem is the consequences of using it habitually, not the difficulty of quitting it.

Actually, today is the first day of a planned, six-week break. No bowls for me tonight.

I have one, on and off....although I think about drugs all the time. I have had problems with coke & opiates, coke is no longer a problem, and most likely never will be again ( I have absolutely no urge to do that shit again, the high isn't attractive to me anymore.) Opiates are another beast, i'll probably use them on and off for the rest of my life. No words can describe my love for opiates, especially heroin. I've learned to accept this, and I don't regret using at all. I've mellowed out a lot, and I use in moderation these days.....i've gotten strung out too many times, and I sure as hell don't want to go through withdrawl again. *shudders*

It becomes a real problem when it eats up your money and your life.

It becomes a problem when I start coming down.


--------------------
And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I'm, I'm quitting, I'm going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk ...four times already this year and I used to be over by the window and I could see the squirrels, and they were merry, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and its not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire.

We seem to be very similar, you and i.

I enjoy the occasional opiation. Benzo's a little more frequently. I was a tried and true functioning pothead for probably six years but that has tappered down naturally to a once in a blue moon sort of thing. Psychedelics are sacred and used sparringly and when appropriate.

I use drugs more often than "most people" and my family and acquaintences are convinced i'm an addict. i've had some run ins with the law, i've done some stupid shit, i've definitely had bouts of depedence on h and coke. But those days are long behind me and i have learned valuable lessons that i truly doubt repeating in the future. But "most people" see one of my pleasurable past-times as a horrible vice. Ah well. such is the way of this backwards ass culture.
