Caffeine and Tobacco? Holy shit...I thought we were talking about real drugs here. I was addicted to coke for about 8 months, but I quit that when I went back to the states - while in the states, I took a very extreme 'liking' to meth for a little while...but just like everyone says, it was the fucking devil and I'm VERY happy that that shit is behind me. I drink coffee and smoke cigs all the time, but I wouldn't really call those drugs, and I absolutely wouldn't call myself addicted to them. Stay away from cocaine though ... it's addicting almost immediately...same with crack, but I've only done that once. :wink:

ha! regular use? saying, i'm not addicted? ha that IS addiction buddy. just because it is not ruining your life doesn't mean your not addicted. hell, you can be addicted to non-chemicals. your in denial. ok, so your not addicted? fine, just stop doing it, completely, cold-turkey, for 3 weeks straight. than after that 3 weeks come back and tell me you had no withdrawal and you still feel you were not addicted.

on another note: you sound like you have an addictive personality ("it's addicting almost immediately) as I HATE pretty much all speeds. I've tried coke maybe 3 times and high powered meth and glass twice. also crack twice. every time I was like what the fuck do you people find enjoyable or god forbid, addicting about this shit?!?! i'm sure you can force yourself to build some kind of dependance ont hat shit but it seems to me you would have to WANT tojust like ciggarettes. nobody takes their first drag on a cig and goes ahhhhh, that was sooo smoooth man THIS is what I'm gonna do from now on. no, they choke and shit but for some perverse reason continue to force it down till they think they like it and are addicted. if your addicted, it is because you WANT to be (crack-babies are excused from this).

I hate cigs.

Once in a while, if i get REAL REAL REAL baked, and everyone is smoking around me, ill get an odd feeling of wanting to smoke a cig, I always get over it by the second drag.

I used to be addicted to caffine, but its easy to get un addicted, but even easier to get addicted again. I have been on and off it like 5 times, I am not addicted now, but am on the road again, drinking 3-4 sodas a day. I have been staying away from coffee tho, so i think I am safe for a while.


never did caffine pills.

Ive had phases with drugs, where i would take one drug frequently for a short amount of time, then stop. The only real, long term addiction i ever formed out of it was from K. 2-5x a day, almost every day, for months and months. Ive cut way back on it, but I have cravings for it like nothing else. Other than that, I smoked pot almost daily for a few years, but on occasions when I'd have to go without it, no withdrawl symptons were noticed, and I wasnt craving it so I guess it aint an addiction.

I am addicted to nothing. NOTHING. I abstain from tabacco and caffine, and have done a variety of drugs. I was psychologically addicted to marijuana, but once i learned to sleep without it...which was grueling, ive come to grips with it, i went all of december without a toke, and have gone about another 3 weeks without a toke, it rarely even enters my mind anymore. If i was to say im addicted to anything, the internet would be the first and only thing to come to mind...and i would just find it frustrating to live without.

I was in the hospital after this one party, I didn't even go hard and it was the first time doin it in about 5 months. It was crazy! My blood started pooling in my hands and feet. My face turned purple. Aparrantly I was close to a stroke and going into cardiac arrest. I almost had a heart attack!!!! And then i move down to where the ICE is flowing, like the polar caps are melting!!

I'm addicted to weed, I share a  joint with a friend every evening now to keep it on the low(sometimes it goes over the line)... thats the only thing I'm addicted to.  I smoke cigarettes, but the only time it really satisfies me is after a good meal or when I'm hyper on Ritalin or coffee or something.  Other than that I smoke cigarettes with company, just because its social, but usually it goes 2-3 days before I buy a new pack.  When I shroom I gotta be sure I have a pack  :cool:  Then I chain smoke. 

Sometimes it can be a beautiful day and I feel great and the birds are singing...etc... and I feel like DYING for a few shrooms, but usually I just read a few trip reports if there are no shrooms in the area, he he.

Luckily I haven't been seriously hooked on anything in my life. I had a stint with cigs at about 13-14 when I would smoke with others, as some sort of stupid rebellious thing. I outgrew it and got sick of it - it NEVER made me feel good, not once. So I had no problem kicking that habit. The only thing that I've been slightly addicted to is weed. It's never been much of a problem, I've just been smoking it more than I normally would. When you have nothing to do at night, and you have no job to get up for you tend to get in the habit of going out and having a smoke every night. I finally ran out, which is good, and I'm taking a break to clear up some tolerance once again. Haven't seriously fiended for it though which is good, because the day when I take a break from pot and I seriously can't go a day without it will be a sad day. Thankfully I don't have a very addictive personality and don't use any other drugs, apart from LSD and shrooms on odd occassions when I can obtain some for a special event.

on another note: you sound like you have an addictive personality ("it's addicting almost immediately) as I HATE pretty much all speeds. I've tried coke maybe 3 times and high powered meth and glass twice. also crack twice. every time I was like what the fuck do you people find enjoyable or god forbid, addicting about this shit?!?! i'm sure you can force yourself to build some kind of dependance ont hat shit but it seems to me you would have to WANT tojust like ciggarettes. nobody takes their first drag on a cig and goes ahhhhh, that was sooo smoooth man THIS is what I'm gonna do from now on. no, they choke and shit but for some perverse reason continue to force it down till they think they like it and are addicted. if your addicted, it is because you WANT to be (crack-babies are excused from this). 





First and definitely foremost - you are not my buddy. Second, with the way you spell and speak, I find it hard to believe that you only tried crack  twice - just for future reference, there's a "Check spelling" button next to the "continue" button...use it. One more thing, learn the contraction of you + are = you're ... not "your" You fucking idiot - trying to explain to me like I'm a fucking two year old that I'm in denial and have no idea what I'm talking about. Obviously you have no idea what the hell you're saying. Furthermore, you have no idea the amount of cocaine that I have done in the past and at a single sitting...obviously "3 times" isn't going to get you hooked...and what the fuck is "high powered meth?" Crack...twice...again, very likely that you're talking out of your ass, but for the sake of argument, twice is not necessarily going to get you hooked. When I said "it's addicting almost immediately" I was not talking about one hit...I was talking about a short amount of time, doing it on a consistent basis. And what the fuck did you mean with all that rambling and bullshit about cigarettes? By the way, that's "cigarettes" not "ciggarettes" ... could you contractive yourself a little more? You clearly support what I'm saying as I try to get across to you that one does not become addicted after one cigarette, one line of cocaine, one hit of "high powered meth" or a fucking bowl filled with crack - you develop an addiction over time...an addiction that you would not understand because you have not done a drug enough to actually become dependent on the shit...and speaking about becoming dependent...I love the "(crack-babies are excused from this)" comment. Where the hell do you think crack-babies get this addiction from? From their fucking host mother who is addicted to crack! Wow - what a fucking concept that is. This is pointless - you're obviously an idiot and I'm tired of wasting my time. Don't act like you know me, because you don't - and you never will ... so shut the fuck up with your stupid ignorant bullshit comments
Peace
 



wow, sorry i offend you with my splleing ( :smile: ). sorry i don't really give a fuck how it looks as long as you can tell what i'm saying. sorry, i thought maybe we could be like little forum buddies where we have somewhat civil discussions. thank you for proving the very point that i was making: you have to WANT to get addicted to something, which is why you do it over and over and over until you ARE addicted. thank you for showing me what an asshole you are so that i know never to have any association with you again. oh, and by the way, i DO understand addiction. I have been very much addicted to dextromethorphan. i did upwards of 2 grams per day for several months. i admit that i did not care enough about my life at the time to avoid becoming addicted to it and knew full well that it had addictive potential. and your argument against crack babies being excused makes no sense. of course they are excused. the mother WANTED to be an addict. the baby didn't have that choice. that WAS my point. oh, and don't tell me to shut up. this is a discussion forum and unless you are a mod/admin who has the authority to silence me by banning me or editing my posts then your are just spouting some really stupid shit. obviously you think that your opinion is all that matters. oh, say what you will, i'm through with this off-topic meandering brought on by your raging and will not respond.

edit: i find it interesting that you jump all over me for addressing you as buddy when i know nothing about you but yet you do the same thing towards others:

edit3: after perusing your posts on this board I am a bit confused as to why reacted to me so harshly. i didn't feel as though i was talking down to you "like a 2 year old", which means I wasn't (since that was not my intention), it was just your perception. i am truly sorry if I said something that truly offended you. please let me know what I specifically posted that was so offensive as to warrant calling me names and insulting my intelligence. i have browsed several posts with bad spelling/grammar that you have replied to without you jumping on their cases. you have even responded warmly to me in the past. i still hold the opinion that daily use of caffeine and nicotine is an addiction. in my experiences with other people (and that would include my wife), when you point out a person is addicted they react rather harshly and pick apart everything you've said to divert attention from your point about their addiction. i am not saying that is what you are doing. i am simply relating my personal experiences. you get pissed at me for making assumptions about you based on what you post yet you are guilty of the same trespass when you assume that I am of lower intelligence because I don't make a picture perfect (grammatically speaking) post or that i am lying about previous drug use or that i do not understand anything concerning addiction.

I thought of this lots of times. But I think I am not really addicted AT LEAST to drugs. I haven't tripped for more than 7 months and just smoke some mj once 1-2 weeks even 1 month. The "thing" I got visible addicted was my x girlfriend.  :smile:(I am surprised nobody mention this). I still think of her, now, after 2 years. I may say I have a lot of habbits.. don't know if they are addictions or not. I like to stay on the net a lot.  :grin:

You are sooooo right...I've been smoking cigs and haven't gotten addicted. Its all mental. The act is what gets you hooked not the taste or chemical in it. Thats what I think at least....
