Do your family (assuming that you have one ofcourse) know about your drug use? (assuming that you use)
In my case, my dad knows about everything I have tried, and although he does care about me, knows that it is pointless to tell me not to do it, because I will just do it anyway, and because if he said “Don’t do it”, he would be a hippocrite, since he did it all in his youth, lol. He is one the few people on earth who I really trust, and I can tell him anything and he will keep it quiet. My grandma knows I smoke the occasional joint, but doesn’t know about the rest 😉 lol.March 8, 2008 at 3:52 am #736789
Well Im lucky that my mum was a first generation raver herself, so I have no worries there. Although she probably would have preferred to me to start drugs a little later on, she knew she wouldn’t be able to stop me, so spent more time teaching me safe and sensible drug use, rather than trying to stop me all together.
I think because of this reason Im even better off than someone who has had to take drugs without their parents consent, and learn things just from school, or frank adverts lol. I think I am a living example, for why educating people is alot better than trying to stop them. After all, we are all “free” and It is up to us how we choose to live, to a certain extent. It was also beneficial in smaller ways, such as coming down in the morning after a night on Es. Instead of me having to sneak crisps and shit upstairs to eat, I could sit down with me cereal and not have to worry about me mum seeing my struggle to chew around my ulcers lol. Infact, she used to laugh at me.
My dad, well I dont live with him for a start. But he is very open minded too, although not a raver. He’s like minded like my mum of course, as they were married at one point. So in this respect he treats drug use the same way. Although he only took Es back in the day out in town, and a just had the odd bit of coke. We also used to have a spliff and a beer which was cool. Back when I smoked It.
My nan is a different story, infact the opposite to me mum and dad. A prime victim of propaganda. She is obviously old, and of the generation before mainstream drug use. She used to spend weekends going to the cinema and what not. As my mum was growing up, as a raver, my nan was obviously there to witness most of it. I think she was chucked in the deep end of the drug awareness pool tbh. She didn’t like it at all, but there was far less info for her to look at back then, and what there was, was mostly manipulated bollocks.
She knows, well thinks, Ive smoked the odd joint only. Except the K she found in me room once. That was a fun few days, she rang around the whole family asking what this white powder might be. And of course there’s a few that have no idea and all sorts were sprouting about lol.
In the end I said It was K, and I got her the info off the Internet. I also let her read up on alot of other stuff. She is open minded too, but still was slightly imprinted by the shit she reads about in the Readers Digest, you know.
I think the less shit that goes about in the papers on and on TV the better. Assuming getting rid of drugs is the best way (Not, of course), giving out one sided information, is not the best way to go about it. You cant make people out to be different people by telling the non users that druggies are bad, and do all sorts while under the influence. Attempting to alienate users, into what they think will be a place where we all decide its not worth it. What a waste of time.
Anyway, back to the topic… As Ive got older, Its got even better with me mum. She keeps on wanting to come to the free parties with me and me mates raaa
Sorry for the long ramble post…March 8, 2008 at 6:01 am #736791
when it comes to family i got 2 i have my mom and father brothers and a sister. i believe in being as honest as you can exept if it will hurt some one so i tell them the truth but only if they ask when it comes to my lil sis tho she knows all in my life we are best friends and go to diffrent festivals together and she sees what i do and makes sure i dont go to extremes.
now my other family (my fiance and daughters) i use care with what i choice to say when the kids are around but with the fiance i dont hide or lie to her about my use. like i smoke green when im not around the kids and i enjoy doing other stuff but only once in a while (have kids and got to be responsible for them) she knows that once a month i do my thing let it be speed or mushrooms and when ever acid comes around she knows ima buy it all up so to the question yes i believe if you are doing drugs strickly for fun you shouldnt hide it from the ones you love(family)March 8, 2008 at 12:31 pm #736774
no one knows anything…….i am but a mere shadow!March 8, 2008 at 12:36 pm #736783
I’m very close with my Mum and seeing as she used to be a full blown hippy herself i don’t hide no secrets from her.
My mums view has always been if you’re going to do something atleast let me know so i know you’re going to be safe and i can talk to you about it first.
The first time i did coke was with my Mum which some people might be abit shocked by but she was there to show me and in the end i made my own mind up on it.
I think having that kind of relationship has helped me and i’d rather be able to talk to her and ask for her experiences on things than sneak about behind her back not knowing what i was doing etc.March 8, 2008 at 2:14 pm #736772
Pretty much all my family know I do them, probably not the extent I do but they have a good idea – don’t think I would really be able to hide it that well tbh! They don’t approve but only really get annoyed if I’m fucked around themMarch 8, 2008 at 2:23 pm #736785
dunno if my dad knows he has never asked.March 8, 2008 at 5:10 pm #736790
only my brother knows, none of my other family know. I know they wouldnt approve so id rather keep the good girl image around them. they just think i drink and have tried weed once…little do they know, i do want my parents to know in a way ,because i know what they have done before me but i guess its something they assume i dont doMarch 8, 2008 at 5:16 pm #736776
I’ve been very open with my family about my drug taking. Me ma does worry bout it sometimes but then again she is a daily mail reader! Alot of my older family are from the old school so only touch alcohol so kinda look down on me and the other family members who do use drugs. Tbh I’m kind of getting bored with getting on mash ups now, I’m not the monster i once was! The comedowns are getting worse these days, I hope this ain’t what people call growing up?!? :hopeless:March 8, 2008 at 6:14 pm #736771
yeah, me and brother actually had a dinner table conversation with my dad about how brilliant ecstasy is. he knows we’ll be pretty careful, also he took drugs as a kid
my gran on the other hand things people get addicted to heroin by havin their drink spiked, and that people on the street are addicted to cannabisMarch 8, 2008 at 6:40 pm #736759Anonymous
