Drugs in Ireland

So I started writing this a few days ago, and got distracted and just yeah that was it....
I'm going to become a regular blogger. Probably the opposite of what you had expected given my recent shittyness, but I'm going to make an effort to blog twice a week. Sunday, and Thursday we'll say. Might have to change it but that's what we'll run with for now.

I was thinking about this randomly (in the shower, where I do most of my thinking really); what percent of people take what drugs in Ireland, I know they change a lot dependant on age so I'm going to just go for the 20-30 age bracket.
So here's my estimates, feel free to input. These are just roughly based on people I know/what I've seen or heard about.
We're not talking once off here, we'll say at least twice a year.

Alcohol - 99%
Tobacco - 50-70% (although frequent users would be ~30% I'd say)
Marijuana - 40-60% (taken with tobacco nearly always, frequent users ~30%)
MDMA/Ecstasy/Ketamine/etc - 25-35%
LSD/Shrooms/etc - 10-20%
Cocaine - 10-20 % increasing as you go further towards 30, due to cost.
Heroin/opiates/etc - about 1% ?
Crystal Meth - I haven't heard of anybody doing it in Ireland... I'd want to say about 1 in 10,000 but that could be so so far off.... Maybe I just live in too nice an area.

Just did that really quickly so probably left out a bunch of obvious drugs...

People keep telling me they never watch these videos. I get the impression nobody watches them, some people (*cough dave*) seem to think telling me that should bring me down or surprise me, but it's fine. I watch them, so it bothers me not.

"what would you do if you slept with someone you just met, only to subsequently find out that they then paid you for your services? would you be weirded out and give it to charity or would you just take the money and spend it on something nice?" - This is such a weird question.... Did this happen to someone? I can narrow this question down to about 2 or 3 people I'd say, just based on how it's written.... Anyway, this is a completely unrealistic situation I can barely get my head around it to answer it. Just to clarify, the situation is I pulled and sexed some chick and then she gives me money afterwards thinking I was a gigolo? Or is it just I was so good they felt they were obliged to pay me? Presumably not that. Either way I'd give the money back to them and probably laugh at them and make light of the situation... I wouldn't sleep with someone who I didn't want to, so it'd be ridiculous for them to pay me because if I wanted to they were clearly daycent enough and could get some sexy times for free handy enough anyway.

  1. It happened in sex and the city once and I thought it posed an interesting moral dilemma but whatever
