I want to do drugs because I am not confident Watch

    I have been depressed for 5 years, since I left school. I find it very difficult to talk and communicate to people, with my own uni supervisor saying that i am quiet and that i cant do the profession i am training for if i am quiet.

    My question is this, would doing cocaine before seminars/presentations help? I have a presentation to deliver in front of 40 people and all I will do is panic and be quiet.

    I am sick of being so introvert, i just cannot be a loud person. I feel like drugs would help, but the other half of me sees it starting an entirely new problem.

    How about some prescription drugs like beta blockers or antidepressants (they work for anxiety, trust me) as well as some CBT to help you overcome your fears properly rather than resorting to an illegal class A drug that you may become dependent on?

    Ever been around people on coke? Yes, they can appear more confident, but they can also behave very erratically, say socially unacceptable things, be verbally aggressive and won't stay still. I'm not sure that is the state you want to be in when doing a presentation in front of a bunch of sober people.

    I can sympathise with your problem, but cocaine isn't the answer. It takes time and a willingness to put yourself in situations you may feel uncomfortable with, but you can get over lacking social confidence.

    Public speaking classes or even improvisation/classes?
