I personally have little faith in psychiatric medications (and the pharma industry) even though I take them...however it has also been my experience that street drugs (for many people) when used to aid a primary psychiatric/psychological problem only lead to worse things happening down the road. The consequences of addiction plus depression or bipolar are truly devastating!

I'd rather accept the shortcomings of my brain chemistry and of psychiatry than compound them with an addiction to alcohol or cocaine. I have found good relief from depression through a long process of trial and error and exercising patience. Over the years I was for a while distracted by street drugs from this process. I don't know any maintenance drug user be it pot, alcohol, or crack cocaine, who has anything like I want for myself. I have known so many, and only the occassional social or casual user seems to benefit temporarily from smoking a joint and having a few drinks. Those people also tend to be fit mentally and aren't seeking solutions in these substances like I do in psychiatric medications (very specific solutions, not an escape from the pain of the way I choose to live my life!)
