Grew up in Brit pop time. Was a pretty hedonistic time

Lots of drugs. I wonder if I was born at another time I wouldn’t have gotten ill


When was that? The 90s? I remember when Oasis was so big here. I liked some of their songs. The 90s was my heyday i think. Very out-of-control then in my youth. Lots of getting high and the onset of MI.

When I was in highschool the punk and art scene was really big in my area. My friends and I ran a collective and yes there was lots of drug use. I don’t regret any of it.

Yeah, personally in my entire four years in high school in the seventies it was all about sex, drugs and rock & roll. Well, minus the sex. And actually it was only marijuana, and now that I think of it, I only liked listening to Harry Belafonte singing Day-O.

Maybe I wasn’t as cool as I thought back then.

Drugs have been there since the 60’s and even before then if you really look at the lives of artists.

Lot’s of nastier drugs out there these days. Like when I was growing up we had junkies but they just pretty much stole all your gear and bolted. Things like meth and stuff I just can’t get my head around. It just doesn’t look like fun so you know chemically it’s doing something amazing for you.

Pot really helped my after a depressive break at 23. It slowed down my thoughts and I felt more normal. A couple of years later it was doing strange things to me even though I stayed smoking it. Anxiety attacks and strange thoughts till psychosis. I wasn’t even smoking too much when I went psychotic.

I’m glad I grew up when I did. I think that is the attitude to have. You can’t change it but you can change your now and future. That is cool by me!
