Very open responces here, open and honest
I bow to your view of life, seriously you've seemed to have managed the whole experience rather well.. However, to say you wouldn't "do it" again, really? Really wouldn't you if offered?
I seriously don't think I would.
I had my fun, when it didn't really matter, and now at 41, with two little kids the last thing I want to be doing is getting loaded and trashing my life.
I have an addictive personality, and have learned to keep away from things that won't do me any good.
I have friends of similar age who still use drugs, including one who is a deputy head teacher, it is their choice, and they are certainly bright enough to make informed choices.
I think the stereotypical 'skaghead' drug user, who steals from old ladies to pay for his next fix, is actually a lot less common than the person who wears a suit to work, and uses drugs as a release in their down time.
You usually find that the typical 'skaghead' has a tragic back story that lead them down a path they didn't particularly choose to go down.
