    The last time I ingested any l.s.d. was in 2011, and psilocybin 2011.

    There's interesting research that indicates people who use psychedelics during addiction treatment and have some sort of transcendental spiritual experience during the "trip" (much like those seen with religious groups that use psychedelics in their religious rituals) have significantly lower rates of relapse than controls.

    Oh okay. In my opinion, Psilocybin practically forces you to self reflect, and seems to eliminate a lot of the bias that comes with self reflection. So, it makes perfect sense that addicts would feel more motivated to quit their addictions. By the way, props to your friend for speaking out for common sense. It's nice to hear people in medicine give voice to reasonable change.

    I take Psilocybin at least once a year. Beats the hell out of Xanax, and SSRI's.

    I know LOTS of people who are long term "social smokers". People who only smoke about once a month (my wife). I know numerous people who have used opiates "on occasion" without becoming addicted.

    Those drugs are highly addictive, yes, but they aren't "one and done" like how they are portrayed.

    I know how low the esteem is here for anecdotal evidence. Still, it's what I have available

    I've always been amazed by social smokers and casual opiate users. My own Sister was a casual smoker, only one in the evening. OTOH I stole a cigarette from as camp counselor at the age of 12 and promptly became addicted. 58 years later and if they hadn't invented E-cigs, I'd still be an addict. I suppose I still am, just a cleaner and more convenient one. The odds will not be in your favor. That's why the tobacco industry is so huge and profitable despite government interference and that's why on a freezing day in a city, you'll see smokers freezing and smoking at the same time.

    As for opiates, I'll agree that most people can take prescribed pills as directed. So, after a surgery, you can take your 2 or 3 10/350 Percocets for a week and then never take another one. You might feel crappy the day after you stop but yes, you should be alright. OTOH, crush up an Oxy 80 or some Mexican Tar and snort or inject it, your story may not have such a happy ending.

    I didn't get addicted after one smoke, but I certainly got addicted eventually.

    I hear you on the grip it can have and the amazement at social smokers and casual opiate users. Lucky bastards.
