Alcohol is a psychoactive drug so you shouldn't exclude it simply because its consumption is culturally integrated in the West.

In the West, alcohol will be most people's first encounter with a psychoactive drug. It was mine; cannabis followed it.

Ditto. Followed by a whole shitload of other shit which by it's very nature don't lend itself to chronological ordering. More like they intentionally defy and disrupt chronological ordering.

All 5 of them? That might be representative of some set but not the set of potheads. Tongue

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Rather than say, "I had a 2 hour reprieve from my pain/angst/misery/loss/melancholy and I'll cop the symptoms of the withdrawal as a necessary part of enjoying the high in the future", the "addictive personality" instead has an aversion to any unpleasant withdrawal symptoms and starts using multiple times in one day. Soon the heroin produces no euphoria and it produces only normality (euthymia) and thus you have your typical junkie.

That is the nature of addiction in a nutshell. Thumbsup And precisely why the "hair of the dog" is a horrible hangover treatment. 'cause you know, admit it, you're just gonna keep drinking.

Sadly, unlike anyone else here, I don't have stockholm syndrome.
Wait, no, I forgot about broccoli.

You didn't turn it around and flip it upside down and reverse roles so the captor is actually the captive? 'Cause I mean that's what Girly did. Tongue

I'm only considering those I know personally. I can include all the habitual drug users whose life have been cut short too if you want. (Like with the bodies I'm asked to find)

They don't comprise a representative sample. Your reasoning would be like an STI specialist concluding that everyone has an STI because everyone they see in their clinic has an STI.

Those that use drugs that don't die from an unintentional overdose, that don't have hepatitis or HIV, that hold down a job, we don't learn about.

I don't need a representing sample to be against habitual drug use and to avoid drug users in my life. I don't need a representing sample to require random drug testing with my employees and to immediately terminate anyone who tests positive.

I don't agree with habitual drug use. It's not good for the body, and has a societal cost associated with drug use. The potential for abuse is high.

Further, there is no real benefit for drug use.
How is this even a debate that eating hydrocodone like their goddamn M&MS is bad for a person individually and bad for society.

Drugs are bad, mmmmm Kay?

Love to. Unfortunately Cathy has fired up the propaganda machine. That thing tends to run so loudly it drowns out the sound of truth (not to mention drowning out the OP).

So many cats, so few good recipes.
