Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Eh, uh, what??? Yeah, smokers light up more than once a month. Do drinkers drink more than once a week? (Depends on the drinker...) Smot pokers, they tend to poke smot at various rates, depending on who they are. Is a spliff in the evening 'worse' than hours of mindless TV?? Other drugs, hard drugs? The use rate here can be quite low. Esp. for psychedelics (schrooms, LSD, etc.) These ones do not seem to make one want more immediatelly. Normal use rates for these, among people I know use? A few times a year! Tripping is a large time investment, and a large investment of 'mental energy'. Every week?? Every month?? No way! Most people wouldn't want to do them this often, at least not on a continual basis. There are people who like a line of coke every now and then, without craving it on a daily, weekly, monthly or whatever frequency. A hit of speed for that awesome party, every other month, or rather not with a steady frequency, but not often! Casual drug users, they come in various forms and shapes, not all the same. But, for the vast majority of those I know, the use rate is very low. Really!! Now, is this representational? Anecdotal evidence says not much, maybe my friends are very, very special, and everyone else take a hit every day, and are inevitable led to a nasty spiral of increasing use and abuse? I don't know, really I don't. But I doubt it.
