  1. Hallucinogenic Drug Paraphernalia Discovered from Prehistoric Era

    "People who colonized the Caribbean from South America about 1,500 years ago brought with them heirloom drug paraphernalia that had been passed down from generation to generation, anthropologists propose. Ceramic inhaling bowls found on the island of Carriacou, in the West Indies, date back to between roughly 400 and 100 B.C, according to a study headed by Scott Fitzpatrick, an assistant professor of anthropology at North Carolina State University. These dates are well before the...
  2. Fiction: Adam's Day (part 1)

    Hillary was coming over soon. Adam wasn’t as excited as he felt he should be to have his girl coming over. She would probably give another lecture of sorts about getting clean, what she didn’t realize though was that her lectures were impossible to get through sober. Adam loaded up an oil lamp (that’s what he has to call them when he buys them at the local Grand Forks head shops. If he calls them meth pipes they call the cops) and prepared for her arrival. Holding the...
  3. Cannabis: A Modern Day Prohibition

    Weed. Even the word sends shivers up the spine of most UK politicians. Even though it is more accepted in the states, we still fall way behind when it comes to legality and decriminalization, both in a medicinal and recreational sense. The problem is not the understanding we have of the medicinal properties of the plant, nor a lack of information about the usefulness of hemp and how it can be used for pretty much everything, from paper to building materials to clothes. No, it really just...
  4. Experimentation, Needles

    I've been pondering my planned usage of Ketamine. I'm considering using needles for IM injections of Ketamine. Avoid nasal burn while making entheogenic tasks easier. That and it's conservatory of the material. While there's something I find attractive about insufflation, it's not particularly enjoyable for me to do. The notion of a burning sensation throughout my often stuffy sinuses isn't enticing. Especially as sometimes my allergy medications and sprays can cause that all on their...
  5. Addiction: Commonly used, Rarely defined

    "Addict": Commonly used, Rarely defined I was about to respond to a post about addiction when I had to stop an think what the word really means? I thought of many different definitions (sadly I fit into all of them) but thought that it was a very vague term, despite this - it is commonly used. So I thought I would look into it more (these are just my thoughts not saying this is my answer). I began by looking up the word "Addict"/"To be addicted" in the dictionary, as follows: "To be...
  6. And So It Begins

    Hello Drugs Forum, my name is Jas (or PolySub, my username) and I am brand new to blogging. I hope to bring some interesting and informative entries for all of you to read, whether it be for entertainment, learning from my experiences, or simply getting to know me (all the while focusing on drug and ethnobotanical-related content). Please bear with me as I learn how to grow and focus my blog and its themes. I think a good start would be getting to know me, so read on! :) Age: 24 Name:...
  7. Methamphetamine addiction - an outsider looking in

    Living with someone addicted to methamphetamines is entirely exhausting and demanding. The drug is something l have zero respect for, for the individuals that use it l reserve my judgement because l don't want to generalize but with the individual l live with it is a living fucking nightmare. He is moody, belligerent, narcissistic and self indulgent twat that make focus is to try and hide it from me and apparently discover all the moods that are avalible for the human form in one day....
  8. Fast Forward/Rewind: Time to grow up

    Decided against posting this on the forums due to the fact I'll likely ramble a bit, and that's not my forum style. I won't be using code words or names like before because I need to own this, it's my life. Let's get to it. So, all my previous blog posts were about my meth relapse almost two years ago. A lot has changed since then. Biggest change in regards to this post, I Fucked around and got addicted to heroin/opiates. I guess it became a daily thing around July 2014. I'd been addicted...
  9. If you fancy an academic read....

    Re: A new paradigm for addiction therapy is needed I have a BSc in Sociology and Economics and am a qualified recovery therapist/counsellor. I'm currently working towards being registered with the British Association of Psychotherapists and Cousellors, so BSc Hons MBACP. It doesn't make any difference though. At the end of the day we're all just human. I love Michel Foucault 15 October 1926 - 25 June 1984. He was a french Philosopher and Postmodernist who wrote books, translated...
  10. Lyrica Scoop

    Pulling up outside the windows, I give them time to note my car. Otherwise they won't open the door. A girl walks by sucking a cigarette. Gnomish beanie, lurid skirt and bad deportment. I bro-shake Kango in the tiny hallway of the system-built house. "Seven pm as promised!" "Yeah man. I said to Chelsea, who the fuck? She's like, it's yourself! Go on through, brother." The living room is cluttered like the vestibule. Mad junk and salvage. I sit next to a small generator unit....
  11. Poly substance addiction

    I've been addicted to so much shit it seems like its a new substance everyday, while I am completely sick of dealing with it, I dont want to give it up. I love drugs, I love the way they take away my pain, and even me out. Meth makes me feel invincible and accomplish so much and when I start to feel like a zombie I switch to another drug. Im living in an octagon of drugs replacing one addiction with another addiction, and I care but I also don't at the same time. Ill drink while doing...
  12. From PIHKAL to Drugs-Forum

    The Netherlands, 1994. I wrapped the foil of a white and blue book with anticipation. This precious book had finally found its way to me and I could not wait to see if it was all that I suspected it to be. The book listed over 180 powerful drugs and exactly what these did. Written by the man who brought us MDMA. Surely the book would be stuffed with gems that could be as revolutionary as MDMA was to society. It felt as if it was my birthday. Phenethylamines I Have Known And Loved (PIHKAL)...

  14. Thanks for the comments

    I just read the comments on my blog re my attempt at fiction and it's really touch me. My all Favorite writer is Iain M Banks, I love the way his writing takes you to the place he's describing. When I read his work I'm write there feeling and seeing what the characters see. I was told I was dyslexic at school, I have come to believe that I am not but am almost certainly dyspraxic but I did really struggle with spelling and writing at school. It was nearly impossible for me....
  15. First attempt at fiction

    So I've never really been big on writing, it's only really here on forum I've ever done much of it, but I've always fancied having a go at creative writing and have constant ideas for stories. SO I finally got round to giving it a go and here's the first couple of pages of what I'm working on. I'd really appreciate some honest feedback from any writers or anyone interested in reading fiction Chelsea Boots are not made for running A short story by Enid Blighted (AKA Mr Bumble)...
