Drug Use in hacking personalities

Post by DNR »

I just wanted to know what drug use was to hacking personality.

You may recall I discussed the hacker personality. Some of those traits may make you prone to drug use. Drug use could be simple as drinking red bull or espressos while you pull a 10 hour online. It could be smoking pot or drinking beer before you code or 'do your thing' on the 'net. Drug use does not have to be while online or at a console, it can be in other areas of your daily living. Hacking the planet, hack the mind, do any of you explore with drugs?

probably this should be a anonymous vote list?

Y N I drink
Y N I smoke
Y N I do energy drinks
Y N Pills are considered food
Y N A friend with weed is a friend indeed
Y N Pepsi? I rather do coke

I guess porn and politics is ok, but not drugs

feel free to run a poll... :wink: I know what Necrix means, for many people it´s surely too personal....so a poll would be kinda interesting.

my everyday stuff is cigarettes and green tea.... :)
our lives are full of drugs anyway, simply try to live a month without meat or sugar...computers....TV...sex...

Of course it is personal, it has legal. employability, spousal, moral, and ethical implications. Good heavens if your friends should look down on you.

Even I would like to remain descreet. I guess I wanted to hear other people sides to this issue. I do agree a drug free life is a good idea, but may not be practical.

Nobody can point fingers while they imbib their own drug, - TV, religion, work, or plain old booze.

Hacking the brain though exploration may just be another person's getting 'wasted'.

My internet use is an addiction, proven by my daysoff trying to stay online.

Well, a bit earlier this year, i went to school hyped on up ritalin and zoloft (exact opposites of eachother, screwed me up, bout had a heart attack...) but then i got caught and drug tested, so they threw me in a rehab center and put me on probation. So i guess you could say that i used to do pills, but now it's more of "a friend with weed is a friend, indeed." :P but not until i'm off probation.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It works on my machine...

The following was NOT typed by me *cough, cough**hint, hint* *clue, clue**wink, wink**nudge, nudge*:

Alright...

weed helps every now and then..but it makes me too lazy for PC work unless combined with caffiene.

Adderall or ritalin..they're okay..I tkae them when I really must stay awake that day. For the most part, it speeds my heart up a shitload, giv eme nosebleeds when I quit taking them and start again...and thye make me think either extremely fast..or just of alot of things at one time.

OD on cough syrup is kinda dumb.

X is koo....no doubt.

Coffee...not really my preferred choice. Caffiene seems to really affect me. Two or 4 cups of coffee will do almost the same as adderall..but I don't crash as bad as I do with adderall. It'd be better if I found a cheap source of caffiene that DIDN'T fuck with my nervous system so much.

Energy drinks used to be my love....but then I realized I can't afford them anymore.
Little things like aspirin for headaches is ok..but excedrin works better for those really bad migranes.
Huffing paint fumez can get kind of dumb, too.
W33d is cheaper to grow..but best not on your own property.

Never messed with coke..but I'm sure some types of X have some in it.

Alcohol..I dislike beer..but any other liquor is alright.
Cigarettes..seems like a dumb way to kill oneself..but they help me stay awake and I tend to quit alot. I never really intend to quit indefinitely..but each time I quit is a good bit of cigarettes not smoked.

For the most part..the use of drugs is inevitable...we should all have enough self-control not to let them destroy our lives or careers...or all of our brain cells. :p
Meditation helps a bit for natural enlightenment..
candy also is a kool energy boost sometimes.

There's prolly more..but I'll stop here.

My drug experiences have run the gamut, I don't dare say what I have done and what I prefer:) For educational purposes, however:

I like speedy things for being on the computer.
Caffeine, coke, and hydrocodone (always made me hyped up).

As long as I don't smoke like, 2 or 3 blunts, weed gives me energy too.

Sinus medication (with pseudoephedrine) works well.
Used to be a huuuuge ephedra user, before they took it off the shelves. MiniThins or the like are ok.

I really dig psychotropic substances but they don't work well with computer use, unless you feel like looking at screensavers:)

That's all I can say about personal drug use and computers :D

Whats that smell? something burning?

Post by DNR »

I appreciate those that had the guts to write.

I myself smoke the bud, chronically I might add.
Don't judge me for what I have smoked, or how much. Look at what I have done with my life.

Alcohol is old, if I do, its burbon.
Coke is it, but unless it cost $3. a gram like in costa rica, I can't afford it.

I would get high weather not I was online, mtn biking, fishing, hiking, reading a book, or watching tv. I have been that way for 25 years, not something I boast anymore. I suppose I have shorten my life span, but those are the 'old years' anyways. Meat, unhealthy weight, plain old genetics, and nuclear weapons will kill ya too.

I do not condone drug promotion. My drug use is my dirty secret, my private battle. Hacking is also one of my dirty secrets, and a battle. Certainly it should be shared amoung friends, but those that do not know, shouldn't.

I suppose if I read books, I would be off reading many books in private. But I wouldn't be interacting with people. The internet is my book. Characters are real, they are you. I learn about life through people that are real online. I try to return the favor by also being a positive souce of energy to them.

Like a good book, your words paint a picture of who you are.

This topic may be important to n00bs, trying to deal with the same crap we deal with.

I do suggest everything in moderation, including drugs. Be 'stoner smart'.
Be in control of your life and make sure it is a productive life.

Thanks again,
DNR

Its rarely that im under the influence of anything else but caffeine when im in front of my pc, cuz im 17 and live at home so getting stoned at home is rarely possible. Though i enjoy the half baked in front of the pc feeling when i get home at night, after a 20mins lecture of my mom about drugs ofcourse. This may sound weird to most but i really dont like the taste of alcohol so getting drunk doenst happen often :(. Id love to be stoned at home more often but its not possible :(. So to answer the question,weed if possible.

In my experience, alcohol is an acquired taste. I had to force myself to drink beer for 3 months before I enjoyed it. (In preparation for my 21st birthday party :) )
Don't like hard liquor, unless the taste is masked by something else, really. Which isn't to say I *can't* or *won't* drink it!
It's just easier to control how much I drink, myself and how I feel when I drink beer.

While you are living at home, it's a better than good idea to follow your parent's rules:) Less crap you have to deal with, that way.

Yeah..with your own house, you don't have ot worry about your parents finding certain plants growing in your room. THEN, it's the cops you have to worry about. ;)

lol..well, we all need a release from all of the streses in this world. Some have gaming, some coding, some hacking, some charge the stress head-on and make it their business to have a REALLY social, life.

Hell..some of us have several of those things, and more. And more.

It's just a part of being human and dealing iwht stress so that you can have the ability to wake up th enext morning...or, with some things, NOT wake up the next morning.

Concerning my experiences I have nothing to hide, and if I wasnt currently owned by the US government, i would smoke chronically as well (im on probation, have been for nearly 6 years now - i will not say why)

gozta luv thos KB nugz :wink:

I enjoy beer - sometimes to the point of obliteration, most of the time only to the sensual euphoric feeling on a hot summer day (nothing like ice cold beer when its hot)

Ive been through some tuff drugs, no heroine, never messed with needles, but i was addicted to cocaine and its subordinates for over a year...i stopped cold turkey, havnt touched it for over 5 years...

i like LSD, every now and then (ssssshhhhhhh!!!)

ive played with MDMA, back in my Raving days of spinning hard house and trance

never been a pharma-pill popper (ie vicodin, percoset, viagra, oxycotin) unless i was in pain, and perscribed (ive never been perscribed for viagra :p )

on LSD i watch Visuals on my computer, thats about as far as that goes...

on weed i stare at my monitor, and eat doritos, munchos or funyuns and drink soda

on alcohol i try to pick up chicks online...heh, youd be surprised

on the hard cocaine stuff - i was to busy to even care about anything but that, so i never got on my computer during the "Dark Days" as i like to refer to them


energy drinks/caffeine and their likeness : i sit and work at my desk for hours upon hours, as long as the coffee/tea or energy drink keeps coming

bow chica bow wow

Post by maboroshi »

I started smoking Pot dropping acid and various other drugs at the age of 10 I was put into a mental hospital and diagnosed with schizophrenia. :(

When I got into school I quickly realized that computers were one of the only things that would keep me sane

I can say computers are what kept me away from drugs in highschool other than coffee and the drugs I have to take Im not on drugs at all

Cheers Maboroshi
