Getting high

    Just wondering, what; if any are the drugs of choice of PFers. I have found most of the physics majors at my school to be stoners, I was wondering if that trend was everywhere. I myself smoke mostly on the weekends, or when I watch movies. I also drink pretty heavily on fridays./saturdays. :redface:

    Haven't touched the stuff, worried about health effects. I tend to get highs from my hobbies (including, sometimes, physics). Whatever works for you, though. Just do it in moderation.

    Frankly, I can't understand how anyone would want to touch any sort of drug with a ten foot pole, and that includes alcohol.

    Me either. They're much harder to get at from 10 feet away. :rofl:

    Ever been to a party without alcohol or drugs? Pretty boring in my opinion. But then again I am a twenty year old guy going to one of the top party schools.

The best part is that it has no negative physical or mental effects.

    Notice how this thread consists primarily of one-liners. Maybe that reflects the lack of concentration associated with recreational drugs.

    If you feel you have a need for a drug, I suggest you first consult a competent psychiatrist to consider appropriate pharmaceuticals before committing yourself to a substance crutch.

    I would guess that the vast majority of those that have taken street drugs mature out of them, become dependent on them to cope with life, or "self-medicate" an underlying mental illness.

    I can live without them.

    I would love to get high on an intellectual conversation, but that is beyond my reach since most people lack the ability to think.

    Because of this, I believe I am at the wrong school and should consider a school that encourages people to think.

    While I also prefer intellectual to chemical stimulation (except maybe if you count chocolate), I always liked this description by ethno-botanist Wade Davis of his experience of some South American rain forest plant he tried (all in the name of science I'm sure :wink: ):
    "It was like being fired out of cannon lined with baroque paintings into a sea of molten electricity."​

    Maybe you should stick to the chocolate! :tongue2:
