you know like the commercial, what keeps u from
using or wanting to. whats your anti druG?
One thing it is not, is any activity that was previously associated with being high.
Look back to things you enjoyed before you used to get high, try out
some of those things again. Many of us give up some of our most
enjoyable pasttimes when we start to get high. It has to be amusing or
fun, and also
occupy some time.
Adrenalin for me - a serious honkin' ride on my motorcycle is all the high I need.
Thinking is another one for me. Designing and building electronic
circuits, radios, etc. Occupies the mind in a deep and rewarding
manner, and provides a sense of accomplishment when it's all finished.

MUSIC. It stimulates my emotions when nothing else does, instead of the emotional dulling effect of (most) drugs. Also, my cat. She loves a warm lap, and I have none to provide when he's messing with cola (too restless).
Music and guitar.
Video gaming works quite well for me, anything really that'll absorb me
and keep my mind off of things. Watching movies or something like
that'll do good too, though not nearly as well as video games.
And sleeping too (if it's possible at the time at least ).
Drumming works wonders too, or hanging around with some of my non-drug-using mates.
Besides that I can't think of too many things, but then again I don't
feel the need to quit drugs very often so this suffices for me.
Drawing. I like to draw comics, do some stencil graffiti, skateboard.
Those are all good, even though they are fun when I'm high, too
Honestly, marijuana is sort of an anti drug for me. It kinda kills my
wishes to do other heavy drugs, or at least takes my mind off of it.
Helps me relax, removes stress, etc.
I also like to make pipes and bongs
True Love. When I first met my wife I was in pretty bad shape. We were just friend s for a long time. During which time she was the only real </span>friend
i had. Now that we are together I dont need to fill the hole in me that
I kept cramming full of drugs to make me believe I was happy.
Mine is definately frisbee
freestyle, ultimate it doesn't matter.
something about the whole discipline just puts me in an extremely
relaxed meditative state, plus the exertion can really get my juices
too bad i live in a 4 season climate

My friend who ODed on Crystal and died. It taught me to stay away from crystal and to pace myself in the furture unlike he did.
the fucking piss tests
Reptiles. I love owning and caring for them. They are very interesting, but primal creatures, but if you spend enough time working with them, you discover very interesting things.
Music. Drugs like pot have never helped with learning music, in fact it has horrible effects on SWIM's playing abilities on guitar, bass and piano.
I can't believe this shit
I came here to talk about drugs, learn about them, share my experiences with them, etc.
But Ya'll have sucked me in to all this advice on quitting them. Jeez!
It's all good though. I've had my fair share of addicions over the years that I've had to deal with.

Not necessarly quiting, but keeping your use to a reasonable level. You can't spend all your time getting high, so you look towards other things you enjoy.
marijuana is my anti drug
All the things you ppl have said are things I love to do high, music, guitar, drawing, movies, video games, (excluding tests and oding) the law is my anti drug I guess, though it is not very effective
The law definitely does put a damper on things!
I am going to sound like a bit of a nerd, but the one thing I has found keeps her off drugs is a good fantasy book, favourite being Pratchett novels.
Unfortunately it gets to an addictive point, I don't put the book down until she has read it and she reads very fast, so it doesn't take long to go back to wanting drugs lol
I think it's because a good book is a complete escape if you immerse yourself into it completely, but I have found that after I finish reading I get a bit of a "comedown"...intense disappointment that there is no more to read :>
Though I don't have one, a dog would be a great anti-drug, as it would require loads of love,attention and be a big responsibility, so I would put the care for it above getting high any day.
Love, a nice girl to settle down with.
My best friend... whenever we hang out I always feel a lot better than if I was alone.
Art, and crafts.
Learning to crochet, knit & sew; can't be bothered to do them if high, doing them is a good gauge for those around that projects on the needles/hooks = sober time.
