Drugs and Surfing

November 14, 2010

Due to recent events in the surfing world, I realized I should write this post. We live in a world that has become increasingly dependent on drug use. This is true whether we think of street drugs or medical drugs. Is there anything that we should know about drugs to help us make intelligent decisions? I think there is and perhaps my own experiences and studies will be of help.

The first thing I’d like to say about drugs is that all are poisons. You can test this out for yourself by taking an overdose (OD) of any drug there is and observing the result. Clear enough?

While a few medical drugs are useful (probably less than 5%) most of them cause more harm than good. This is a nutritional/health issue and is not the subject of this post, but some medical drugs are used for non-medical purposes. This is commonly referred to as “recreational” drug use, but I object to that term because it’s a marketing term coined and promoted by those that wish to poison you and make a profit by so doing (drug pushers, ya know).

If drugs are poisons, why do so many of us use them? I believe this can best be stated by the words “to feel better”. Note that I am including any “benefit” that drug use seems to provide. If drug use makes us feel better, what’s wrong with their use? This point is the real key to drug use; keeping in mind that the drug is a poison, it works by either blocking some pain (physical or emotional) or by speeding up/slowing down some body physical/chemical process. The “high” (feel good, etc) is the initial, desired effect, but the “crash” (come down) or hang-over is the actual over-all effect of poisoning the body. You cannot repeatedly poison the body without making it worse. How fast the body gets destroyed is only a matter of how potent the drug and how frequent the use.

At this point, I’m going to make a statement that may shock you and I’m sure that some will violently disagree. After extensive study and my own observations, I realized that drugs do not make a person high. Now some of you will say: “Bob, you’re a fool, I get high all the time from drugs.” Yeah, so did I; except that was not actually true. That “high” (feel good, etc.) is actually a small taste of how you should feel (be able to perform, etc.) all the time. You actually get a small taste of how things should be, but at the price of gradually getting further away from that desired state due to the cumulative effect of poisoning the body. Those of you that think you get a spiritual boost by drug use, this also applies to you. You cannot use a physical substance to make a spiritual gain. Yes you can perhaps “get a glimpse” but the poisoning will prevent all spiritual gain in the end. No matter how you look at it, or what your reason for drug use, it results in a nasty trick that gives you exactly what you were trying to get away from in the first place.
