What is safer drug use?

The harms

Recreational drug use has the potential to damage your mental and physical health and sense of well-being, sometimes permanently, by which time you may have lost your job, credit, your home, family, friends, boyfriends, and partners. Granted, factors include which drugs you've taken, in what dose, and for how long (one-off or sustained use), but:

  • Hard-ons can be a non-starter, and we become sexually incapable
  • Paranoia, psychosis, depression, anxiety and/ or flashbacks
  • Increased risk of developing schizophrenia
  • The inability to concentrate, and memory loss
  • Sleep problems and insomnia, a loss of energy and/ or weight loss
  • Bringing up the rear: collapse, unconsciousness and death.
