Did you do drugs back in the day?

How is your memory? Mine sucks. And it really bothers me because I would like to remember everything. I think it's because of all the drugs I did when I was younger. In my pre-drug phase, I think I had a pretty good memory (but I can't really remember for sure Anyway, it's been over 10 years since I've done any drugs so I'm wondering if I will ever get those brain cells back? It's not like I'm totally stupid now- I am a computer programmer after all, but I just get memory lapses that really suck and make me look stupid sometimes. I'm doing everything I can now to regenerate my brain- getting my omega-3s and taking other vitamins, but I wonder if it will even help? Aaah! Why couldn't I just resist those shrooms & lsd as a kid? Back then, I didn't care if I lived or died or fell off the face of the earth. Now I do care. So anyway, that's my story. /end of confession

I never did drugs- only weed. And my memory is better than most of my friends who have never done anything. Not saying the weed helped my memory or anything- just sayin'.

I've never done any drugs, I have drank alcohol, but no drugs of any shape. In my limited experience when I've been on hydrocodone or pseudoephedrine or whatever when it's been prescribed to me, I didn't like how it made me feel. I like being in touch with reality and have never felt the need or desire to be on anything. Yesterday when I accidentally took too much of the wrong cough medicine I felt like crap for a long time, I don't know why people would want to feel that way on purpose. It's icky!
I hit "still do" because despite my not agreeing with it, weed counts. And so should alcohol, which I also "do".

I did my fair share of drugs in high school and college. I think my memory is fine for my age. Its not as sharp as it was as a child, but I have a lot more to remember.

As for being a space case, I was like that long before any drugs.

nope but thought about it. ive done weed but that doesnt count unless you're counting alcohol too (at least a couple times a week for me )..i know im probably losing brain cells that way..

eta: i have done hashish..i put it in the same category as weed though..or not?

I think you could count any drug that you didn't use for medical reasons or a drug used to feel good regardless of the negative effects you get afterwards. So in actuality, I'm sure nearly everyone has done this by drinking at the very least. The legality of things really doesn't make sense to have some be illegal and some not...

Yes, I did some recreational drugs when I was younger, and yes, I still do some recreational drugs from time to time. But, aside from alcohol and nicotine, I only do drugs occasionally. A few times a year, tops.

I was in to many activities and in law enforcement in the military, so while I drank like a fish I didn't touch anything else.

Now as a grown up, pass the pipe please. I pass on alcohol because of the side effects with my prescription drugs. Weed really has been great at helping keep everything down and I was able to walk with less pain.

I did my share of weed and mushrooms back in the day, but nothing any harder than that. It was a lot of fun, and I don't regret it one bit.

Now I just drink the boozeahol. But I'd like to cut down a bit. The ol' metabolism just isn't what it used to be, and too much alcohol makes a chubby Moppy.

But at least with weed, you can say you felt good doing it...with cigarettes, there is no high so what's the point? I know how addicting it is, but I quit many years ago. I did fib a little when I said it's been 10 years since I've done any drugs. I do have a toke now and then when I'm drinking or just because it's passed to me. It's kinda hard to avoid at family doings since my entire family smokes pot (besides my grandma, but she has threatened that she might as well get a pipe and a bag since she knows every one does it, but they still hide it from her ) But anyway, I don't think I will do it anymore because I treasure the brain cells I still have. I wish I could find some studies on the long-term effects of drugs years after quitting- but I haven't found any.

Weed and shrooms. My short term memory sucks. I went to get my taxes filed today and had to ask what the date was 3 different times when signing all the papers.
I did my fair share of stuff. And while I did it, I enjoyed it.

Memory is still as good as always. Then again, maybe it has slipped a bit. Either way, I'm glad I have a good memory and glad it isn't any better, or else I'd never let things go!!! hehehhe

Mix of 3s, thick, coarse, medium porosity

I did a little weed. It did nothing for me, so the burning lungs wasn't worth it. I don't regret it, it's a non-event for me.
As for memory losses, I haven't been able to tell, at drop of a hat, my right from my left, after the very first beer I ever had. Seriously. I have to think about it, and it's been over 20 years. The rest of my memory is just fine except for those perimenopause/middle-aged brain blips.
