    ok, this might seem really weird.

    basically my friends and i are writing a short play to enter at the national student drama festival. in the play is a crucial scene where the lead character encounters her first experience with drugs.

    unfortunately there is a major problem. my friends and i, being good girls, obviously, have never actually taken drugs. this is making it very difficult to write about.

    i was wondering if any of you with experience of drugs could tell me how (inhale, inject, sniff etc ) and in what circumstances they took them (club, drunk, home, party etc) and describe accurately the effects of the drug and what it made you do. this would be incredibly helpful to us as it is quite awkward to ask people we know to describe their experiences.

    note: i am not trying to learn how to take drugs nor am i promoting the use of drugs in any circumstances!!! i am writing a play and i want to get these little facts right. please mods don't delete this; i really need help!

    thanks guys xxx

    lol!

    Yea right! Posting anything here is just asking for it!

    There are lots of sites that describe in depths the effects of different drugs, I was thinking of making a bit of a list here, but it would take way too much time.

    The ultimate drugs resource - http://www.erowid.org

    Check out the experiences page, I often find myself reading to see what drugs I'd never touch actually feel like.

    Obviously I'm talking your top class As here, heroin, coke and so forth.

    I think we all know what happens when one drinks too much, and weed merely enhances your senses.

    You roll around laughing and eat all the chocolate cake.

    Don't forget to paint a fair image of the substances - e.g. no recorded deaths from ecstacy, however people have died from dehydration whilst under the influence.

    Maybe you should focus on the panic element of drugs, especially as its meant to portray a first time. Just don't go all Daily Mail on us!

    Tea has caffine in it. So you can get physically addicted to it if your drink it regularly

    imo askfrank is a load of propaganda and as such I wouldn't ask there if you want real experiences.

    i think the best place to get the information as many people have suggested would be ask frank... but also try looking on google or another search engine for informationon drug abuse and its affects. i don't think people will be able to be fowrd enoguh erally to admit on the forum that they take drugs, but i am sure there are some people on here that do.

    thanks guys. the bluelight site is v.useful. i understand that lots of people might not want to admit they've taken drugs. however if u don't mind i'd like to hear your story. it's very important to me that i portray drug-taking realistically because i myself find it offensive when people write about stuff they know nothing about and didn't even bother to research. obviously i'm also researching on other places than tsr! however, the more stories i hear, the more accurate i can be, so fire away!
