Well, I am a student so my views on alcohol are completely irrelevant! I love to go out drinking, I love sitting in with my girlies and sipping on wine, I love going out on the town and drinking until I forget how to use my legs, I love going for quiet cocktails with my girls. Don't get me wrong though I'm not an alcoholic haha, just a student. Though it sounds like I drink obnoxiously, you'd be surprised at how often I go out and don't drink at all or only have one glass! I'm sensible most of the time.
When it comes to drugs I like to think I'm quite open about them. Before I came to St Andrews I was so naive and I knew literally nothing about drugs at all, but there's a lot of money in this town and I've learned that lots of money inevitably leads to lots of drugs.
I have lots of friends who have tried or regularly take cocaine, MDMA, ritalin, LSD and everything else you can imagine. I know you must be imagining what sort of friends I have now, but honestly most of the time you can't tell the difference between people who take drugs and those who don't, they're just normal people!
I also learned that a surprisingly huge portion of people smoke marijuana. I am the sort of person that will absolutely never take any of the horrendous, horrible, addictive chemical drugs - I've seen and heard enough from friends to know that it's absolutely not something I ever want to do. I am open to trying marijuana though and I have a couple times, it's really relaxing! When I visited Amsterdam I had some cookies and brownies but not joints and I don't really like to smoke and it sets off my asthma. The only other thing I'd try is mushrooms, one year I'll be brave enough to have the mushroom tea at Bomba's Full Moon Party in the Caribbean!
