Since everyone was talking about drugs in the other thread I created, Beatle Dreams, I thought it was pretty necessary to create this one.

Well, as I said, I haven't done any kind of drugs, but I am open to it. I mean, look at Paul and Ringo! They are still living and did like shit loads of drugs back in the 60's and 70's. It doesn't seem harmless.

So, to the people on here that do drugs, were any of you influenced by the Beatles to do drugs or it is just a choice you made for other reason?

I will be honest, I want to do it because the Beatles did it.a-hard-days-night-george-8

AND, because I heard it is heavenly to smoke some green and watch Beatles movies at 4 a.m. in the morning.

We've talked about this over facebook so forget me for repeating myself for the sake of the others here, haha.

So, when I was about 7 years old I was given acid and it was the scariest thing ever to happen to me.  Countless fears of mine spawned from that one day and something tells me even if i was in a proper mindset, the emotions and images that followed would still be just as terrifying.  I haven't had the urge to do it again and chances are I won't ever.

I live in a town full of potheads and pretty much everyone here tries some dope before high school is over (and on occasion, middle school…) but I was really never excited nor apalled to smoke any myself.  When my Beatles obsession peaked I was listening to Tomorrow Never Knows and I just kind of thought 'Yknow, I got to get in on that.'  So I got together with Jessica and my boyfriend and it didn't really do much.  A week later we did it again and I just laughed it up.

The way I see it, there are three kinds of pot smokers: Visitors, Regulars, and Stoners.

Visitors try it for the sake of experimentation, maybe go back to it every once in a while.  Just a part of growing up, right?

Regulars do it more frequently, use it as a means of relaxation and occasionally to forget their problems and just chill out.

Stoners have the world slowed down for them, pretty much smoke Eight Days A Week (lol, pun) and don't really focus their money into anything other than the weed.

I consider myself to be in-between regular and stoner.  The wonderful thing about cannabis is that unlike a lot of drugs it has no long-term effects (despite what they're telling us in school… it really helps to research these things legitimately…) and it's not a halluciogenic so there's no scary crap going on while you're doing it.  The world's nice and slow and typically, it's very pleasant.  And you can't get addicted, either.

Anyways, I basically decided to stick to what's natural.  I did shrooms.  And it was AWESOME.

 

And yeah, heavily influenced by my Beatles obsession, won't lie there.  But I tried not to be impulsive and just be all OMG THE BEATLES DID DRUGS SO SHOULD I~ I actually thought everything out.  No regrets, really.

Honestly, I've only ever experimented with "you-can-imitate-everyone-you-know" in order to better enjoy The Beatles.  That's not the same thing as saying I did it because they did it, but it definitely made the experience of watching Magical Mystery Tour and listening to both Sgt. Pepper and Revolver a lot more interesting.  If I ever do it again, it will be because I want to listen to one of those albums, or watch MMT or Yellow Submarine from a different point of view.

Not a bit like Cagney.

I think Jarvis Cocker once said something along the lines of "When
you're young everything is brand new and exciting. When you get older life becomes a lot greyer and more boring. Kids shouldn't bother with acid; they should wait until they're older."

I'd pretty much concur with that, that's the 34-year-old me speaking – when I was younger I certainly experimented, and yes, some of my interest was certainly sparked by The Beatles (sorry Mum, if you're reading). Most of it was positive, though I never got on with weed. Its popularity was always a bit of a mystery to me.

Anyone who intentionally gives a seven-year-old LSD should be prosecuted for child abuse. It's serious stuff, and not to be messed around with unless you're mentally ready for it. In the right hands, however, it can be hugely enjoyable and beneficial. Without wanting to sound like a washed-up hippy, it certainly opened my eyes to lots of new ways of seeing things. a-hard-days-night-john-3

I've never really found a major difference between mushrooms and acid. The effects on both seem to be pretty similar, and I don't subscribe to the notion that natural=good, synthetic=bad. Then again, I haven't really taken drugs since I was a teenager, so it's all quite some time ago. These days a decent bottle of wine makes me happy, and staying up all night chemically-assisted doesn't really appeal so much.

I completely agree with Madi, pot is just a fun thing to do when you're growing up. For me right now, I'm 22 so I can still smoke and not really worry about much, but I know that those days are coming to an end and "real life" will eventually start. LSD and shrooms can open your eyes alot, but they are really dangerous and anything can spark a "bad trip" and those are absolutely terrifying. But there is nothing wrong with smoking pot and I still can't figure out why it's illegal because alcohol is far more dangerous. I would say that since your a fairly young person, 13 if I remember correctly, to just be patient and don't rush into any decision.

I have to say, weed is the only drug I have an active interest in. I haven't gotten any yet, but I plan on it! It was really a decision I made on my own, without much of an influence from the Beatles or anyone else. I've done my research!

 

I briefly considered acid, but I've heard too many stories of bad trips and whatnot.blue-meanie No thanks.

I didn't try smoking weed initially to be like the Beatles, but it was an incentive. Most people my age has/do smoke it on a regular basis, but I myself can't get into it that much. I suppose by your standards Madi, I'm a "visitor." It all depends on the company you're with; if I'm with good friends it's usually quite enjoyable, but with strangers it's hardly bearable- it becomes an out-of-body experience (not in a good way) and I feel very disconnected with my surroundings.

There is the odd time that it will agree with me and I can delve into the boy's songs. Some nights I feel the music coursing through my veins, other times I space out and don't listen at all. I don't know, I haven't done it in a few months, but with summer coming up I can guarentee it will make another guest appearence.

So! My words to the young/non-smokers- don't try it just to be like the boys,I do agree it is just a part of growing up and experimentation, and wait until you can actually benefit from it if it does agree with you! Don't follow the crowd either a-hard-days-night-john-5

OK, first of all, giving a seven years old child acid is preposterous, It makes me wanna kick this subject ass so much I will need new shoes after the punishing session.

I smoke some pot about ten years ago (I'm 34 now) and it was a good experience, but nothing really special about it.

About that time I took acid and the good trip was fantastic, beacause I took it in a beautiful place and I was listening Beatles and David Bowie. I saw music as vivid coloured smoke, the night became day, looking at a mirror, I thought that my eyes were changing of colour, and the sand was breathing as the chest of a sleeping animal, or something like that.

The bad trip was scary. I became really paranoid and I hide in the bushes one entire day, so nobody can find me. I felt so stupid and depressed that I swear not to do it never again.

Yes, that was my strongest Beatle-fan period. I have long hair, beard and round glasses. As John in the "Hey Jude" album cover. I'm not very original, am I? Hahaha!

That is in the illegal drugs side, I don't do legal too. No pills of any kind and no tobacco too, in fact I never smoke tobacco, I can't stand the smoke or smell, It makes me very sick.

I still imitate John, since there's no Epiphone Casino for lefties like me, I have a 335. Next thing in the list is marrying a japanese girl… that's why I'm studying japanese. But I'll upgrade to a babe like this:

It was an absolutely terrifying day, really.  My cousin Ross dropped me off with his friends and we were all together, he was a police officer in-training (very, very amazing guy--he's in the air force now I think…) and some emergency came up, if I recall correctly, and he asked his friends to watch me.  They were typical frat boys, overweight and whatnot, the exact opposite of him.  But, y'know, they were one of his gang so he stuck up for them.  Anyways, he made the mistake of actually trusting them…

Basically they felt like messing with me so they gave me the can of chewing tobacco and told me it was candy.  I didn't necessarily believe them but I was daft enough to try anything and when I tasted it I literally threw the can across their garden.  That PISSED THEM OFF.

So they gave me paper and told me they were sorry for tricking me.  They told me if I tried it I could fly.

Everything that ensued was terrible.  They almost drowned me, drove me off a high ledge, and I remember them burying me in the backyard and while I was restrained there all my senses seemed to flare up.  I could feel every creature in the dirt crawling around me, smell every last piece of earth around me, I probably could've told you the number of dirt particles because of how insanely focused my eyes were, everything was its own.  It was what gave me my taphephobia and I still have it to this day.

There was one good moment, though… I remember sitting on the grass underneath a tree and just looking at the stars for what seemed like hours.  I felt like they were swirling around me, and the air was so clear and I was breathing in our galaxy.  I stayed there through the night unable to sleep until Ross came back the next morning.  I didn't tell him what I saw, but I cried and begged him to never take me there again.

I didn't realize until I was about 11 what I had been through.

Me, I LUUUV cannabis with all my heart; but I'm nowhere near a regular smoker for the simple reason that I'm not street-smart at all and don't know where to get any! So it remains a luxury, a once-in-a-while treat when someone else makes it available.

I was a Beatles fan long before I did any drugs; likewise I read about and was intrigued by their own experiences with drugs before I had any of my own. But I really can't say that they were at all a factor in my decision to try dope for myself. That was simply the result of curiosity and availability.

I did LSD once. Pleasurable, very pleasurable, but won't ever ever ever do it again.

Yeahh.  Was not fun, but at least it scared me away from the chemicals and stuff.

Likewise on the alcohol.  I'm not a fan of hangovers… and I'm never touching cigarettes.  I'm probably already dying from the secondhand my parents produce a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I was only a recreational user of pot/hash between 13 and 22 years old.  The kids in the neighborhood where I grew up got into heavier stuff and I saw how their lives were pretty much screwed up, so i stayed away.

I did not smoke because the Beatles or anyone else did.  I did it for me.  It was nice and I enjoyed it, but I'm past it now.

I've never used illegal drugs personally. I've considered marijuana, but since I'm looking for job and most companies have drug tests (and background checks and credit checks), it just not worth the risk. I doubt that will change even if it is legalized.

Well luckily in the States they have a synthetic version that you can buy at most herbal shops called K2 that has gotten me quite stoned on a number of occasions.

Also I'm glad that this is all out in the open now because there have been times when I've resisted posting high rants on why Revolution 1 was their creative peak and other silly thoughts that have come into my head.

Ditto.

 

Me and drugs? To be honest no. Although my chances of dying because of drugs are quite high.. if I ever stop posting here it's because I got a bullet in my head while getting around my city (or I joined an Internet Addicts group) a-hard-days-night-john-3

Wow, I don't know what kind of places you guys live in but I don't know anyone who's taken drugs. I've definitely considered it, but I have no idea how I would get any and I know none of my friends would either. I would only do it if my friends were doing it, being stoned alone doesn't appeal to me. I'd also make sure I was in a one-storey building, I've heard way too many bad stories of accidents.
