    Joe, I'll admit that my 'argument' is entirely hard line- it's a rule I think is worth living by- but I think that there are enough creative young people who've never taken a drug to disprove the idea that drug use necessarily enhances creativity.

    Looking at the world differently in any way can enhance creativity, but it's not a risk worth taking to do it by taking drugs because, just as time (and excessive quantity of food for instance) takes it toll on the body so surely does drug use and you can't perform plastic surgery on the brain if you change your mind, as so many do, about wanting to live fast (well, many actually live slow) and die young.
    You're are an idiot if you think that, creativity has been spurred on in the past because of drugs, in fact usually drugs to the point of overdose and this helped inspire some of the greatest music ever made.

    Not only in that field however if we look at actors & actresses, Johnny Depp, Owen Wilson, Robin Williams...
    The list could go on but a Technique used by actors developed or practitioned first by the teachings of Stanislavsky. Some of the roles probably wouldn't have been acted or created as well without the use of drugs, Heath Ledgers the joker as my final example.

    Ever wondered how the band Muse get their inspiration for writing such unusual sounding and spectacular music?

    Turns out they wrote much of their stuff whilst on magic mushrooms.

    That Katieloula is entitled to her own opinion, and if she chooses not to take them, i respect that, but you shouldn't use your own values to judge everyone else. Your going to be pretty lonely if you do, you have to realise other people have different values aswell

    I have done:

    Alcohol
    Cannabis
    Salvia
    MDMA/Pills
    Several opiod pills
    GBL/GHB (use most days)
    Mephedrone (=win)
    MDPV
    Ketamine
    Spice
    Diazepam
    Kratom
    Poppers

    I do not like the idea, but I consider myself a 'druggy' due to my excessive consumption of drugs. I do agree that drugs bring many benefits however. Despite my failly constant gbl and frequent cannabis usage, I achieve A grades in my maths, further maths, biology, and chemistry A-Levels and live a fun, social, and active lifestyle. Of course there are negative sides to this lifestyle, but by no means should they be feared like the media suggest they should.

    Hohoho, this thread really brings out some of the trolls in the woodwork.

    I'm curious, I haven't really dapped in drugs much, but it seems acid is a lot less common than I thought it'd be. I've just come back from India, and the people my friends hung around with made it seem like it was a fairly regular experience, once every few months. just thought that was a little strange.
