    I wouldn't describe something that gives you intense hallucinations for at most 5 minutes as fun. Interesting maybe, but not fun.
    Salvia plus weed gave me the intense hallucination followed by like 6 hours of relaxed head-****ery. I lasped back into a longer hallucination like 3 hours after the first too. Also I didn't say 'fun'. I said '****ing awesome'. Need to try some other hallucinogens.

    And it's closer to 15 minutes. Not that time means anything at all while on it.

    First time I tried that all three of us ended up lying in a park throwing up together.
    Salvia+weed=****ing awesome.
    What a lovely story!
    It's true though, in my opinion there's nothing wrong with alcohol and drugs - although honestly i'm not that into that many drugs apart from weed - but the majority of my most entertaining stories have involved them. It makes for a more interesting autobiography.

    i only consumed alcohol 2 times in my life (both time during christmasses with just parents and siblings at home during christmas dinner)....... only got ever got slightly tipsy,but not drunk. last time was when i was 17 (so, christmas 2005) - been alcohol-free eversince. never 'got' the taste, if it makes senses to anybody? :}

    Pfft. This is like arguing with a brick wall. An exceptionally thick one.
    But the only reasons you have supplied are "fun", "relaxing" - not very appealing..

    If I am stressed, I find other means of remedying that - no need to resort to drugs etc - the same goes for anxiety (not very frequent in my life).

    I have to say that I am sociable and confident with most people - with those that I am not, it is inevitable that I will (simply because I have high self-esteem - and I do not mean to sound pompous and proud.)
    Its funny how you think highly of yourself, yet the people of TSR apparently disagree.

    Anyway, if you don't wish to drink alcohol, that fine, your loss. But don't think that it makes you any more superior than I am simply because I don't drink tea.

    fun can be synonymous for "happy making"- what is better than being happy?

    You can't justifiably" comment on anything unless you've tried it, recreational drugs wise

    No-one has a need for drugs. We take them because they are fun.
    And fun is the epitome of life, right? :curious:

    You asked for reasons. And i'm certain you've been determined from the start to not take any of them seriously.

    My loss? Correct me if I am wrong - but is alcohol not harmful to one's health in the long-term..? :curious:

    I drink wine sometimes with a meal, a little red wine. I NEVER drink to get drunk though.
    I hate hearing/seeing girls in short mini skirts screaming rubbish outside my window when they've had a load of cheap alcohol.
    How an earth is a good night one when you don't even know what happened?

    No, on the contrary - I was actually interested to see whether my presuppositions were in fact right or wholly wrong.

    So, now I am "boring" because I do not drink alcohol - my, how society has blossomed. :innocent: So, do you actually think that those who do not drink alcohol are "boring"?

    No, only excessive amounts cause health problems.

    But holidays (with family or friends without alcohol) are fun too, for goodness' sakes - alcohol must be classed a different type of "fun", perhaps?

    No, I just think that you are. You have a very unadventurous attitude towards fun.

    Not at all. Its good for you in moderation (as the vast majority of people take it), both physically and mentally. I will heartily recommend it to my children.

    Sorry, wait - the "fun" that you people are banging on about is illusory:

    " ...Alcohol is a drug that has the immediate effect of altering mood. Drinking it makes people feel relaxed, happy and even euphoric, but in fact alcohol is a depressant. It switches off the part of the brain that controls judgement, leading to loss of inhibitions. Drinking even small amounts of alcohol can affect physical coordination.... "

    you really are quite stupid, the odd binge or odd drink a night wont do nothing, red wine in moderation is good for you

    Because I like it. And I don't really give a **** if someone from TSR says alcohol is not "fun".
