Erowid is a fantastic resource for factual, un-biased information about drugs, spirituality, etc. There are even articles where users report their experiences with several of the discussed topics. Not to mention that not only is this information is important to know, but it is also FREE, and it is graciously compiled into one site makes everything easier. There are few websites on the internet as a whole that offer the staggering amount of information that Erowid does.

Psychoactives are among my more prevalent interests and nothing has helped me learn and gain very valuable information more than Erowid. It has everything I want to know and more on every imaginable substance and spiritual practice. I love Erowid and I will use it for a very long time.

My story is kind of odd... Being a meth addict for about a year now, I've been through almost everything I've heard people talk about, seeing evil stuff, hot flashes, all kind of weird stuff, but you know something, I will be straight up... It is called the Devils drug because it is period. Just how you see good things in life, you see bad things as well. It does cause evil spirits to attack you, control you, and yes, the devil does see you through a glass. The same glass you use to smoke. (Pipe). That's why they call it ice. I know a lot of meth users who have experience similar things like myself, except... I've defeated darkness one too many times. I'm i proud to say this? No. Because I know it's been through God. I wouldn't be able to do such thing alone. What led me to start meth? The lost of a friend, who hunted me trying to led me to his death site. I followed him, until I finally realize he wasn't just anyone. He is the morning star I cried for every night. Why did I defeat him? Because I love him, as the person I met, not who he really is. I still cannot accept him for who he is because honestly, love is blind. I refuse to accept his truth... My truth is only to advice you not to do this drug because it will haunt you. My life will probably never be normal again, even if I stop, but at least I know one thing... I will try to help as many as I can, because only God can save me, yet maybe it's my destiny. So, best advice, don't even try it. In my case, I tried it because I wanted to lose weight to impress him, now... If you knew me, I'm sexy, pretty, and alone. Why? Well because he's not gonna have anyone have his queen... In other words, I got the body, looks, and all his full undivided attention, remember, not knowing who he was...

Erowid provides the youth with a central area for controversial, yet vital information and help. A site such as Erowid astounds me because it takes on such coarse subject's such as drug use and synthesis but portrays them in an educational and professional way. Erowid helps guide the youth with their part taking threw experience vaults which provides a curious pupil with valuable insight that otherwise couldn't be granted without the pupils individual experience(s). With that being said we can understand that from a site such as this, comes a certain number of lives that have been saved. If Erowid was non- existent their would be loads of curious young adults today that would be mislead and deceased from something so humiliating such as a lack of education.

Before I had ever even began smoking weed much less using a psychoactive chemical (such as LSD), I was afraid and had no ambition to do or ever try drugs. Since I discovered Erowid, I noticed from the data they provide for FREE (information that can save your life) that some psychoactives are completely safe and have been test since the initial synthesis of LSD by Hoffman. Anyone using, especially to those thinking about using, need to see this site. A little over a month ago I had a major breakthrough off of a highly popular psychoactive: LSD. I won't go into detail, but this website made me have the balls to drop acid knowing that it is safe, and still doing it months later this time with one of the most important lessons I will ever learn as the motive of the trip. thanks friends
