I've done it, too.
But being smarter than most, I understood that the doing was not the goal, only a hint at what the goal might be.
To keep on doing it is...
Need I describe it?
Squawk!

I certainly wasn't suggesting that you become a drug addict or that drug use can be a spiritual end in itself.

Drugs are like symbols: a discrete part of life that feels better than life itself.

It misleads.

It's not that it hurts you. No, it feels good.
But the time you could spend on something really good is then gone.

Beware.
I include alcohol, television, and non-marriage relationships under "drugs".
Also should probably include video games and internet.
And masturbation, which can be quite addictive.

Hehe.
Let the man who embodies NONE of these behaviours, step forward.
Squawk!

I am not an ascetic, and I make no apologies for it. I believe my time 'under the influence' is very well spent indeed. I'm not a goof or 'psychonaut', spirituality is truly the most important thing in my life and this is reflected in my entheogenic experiences.

I just caught the end of "The Ten Commandments" on TV.
Cecil B. DeMille at his most horrendous.
I remember seeing it, when it was new, at an English cinema, with my mother.
I was 3 years old.
What a riot!
No wonder Christianity could not survive its being rendered as a cartoon, by Hollywood.
