How many gays don’t actively use recreational drugs? I feel like I’m an outlier in the community.

I’m glad you received affirmation that you are not the only one out there who has decided to refrain from recreational drugs. I appreciate the person who said they tried once. I used to be a regular user of recreational drugs but as I got older it was no longer fun... it felt stupid, so I stopped. I agree with the person who said it’s about your community; as I grew, my community changed and that fostered my change. Can’t say I don’t miss the good times but I appreciate the safety and piece of mind refraining brings.

Ditto D3. I loved the circuit scene when I was in my 20s, and all that came with it. I also had a social circle that was into it. It became less enjoyable as I got older and life changed, so my social group changed. Depending on what it is and the situation, if something is offered to me I might (though very rare) partake now (in my late 40s), but I don’t seek out anything beyond alcohol, and I never feel pressured to take part. If you feel like you’re the only one who doesn’t do drugs and it’s bothering you, then maybe you need to re-examine your social environment and make some changes.

Out of curiosity, are you in NY? I think it’s much more common in NY gay communities, particularly the guys who frequent Fire Island, than other cities like Chicago. I’m from Chicago, and I recall visiting my ex in NY once and being shocked that everyone did Molly on an average Friday night...

I went through a party with recreational drugs phase and then I just stopped a few years ago. Didn’t have to explain to anyone why and if it came up for some reason I didn’t feel pressure or awkward. I just decided to stop but I don’t judge any of my friends that still indulge - to be honest I don’t know or care most of the time. If you asked some of my friends they wouldn’t even know i left that behind years ago - just not the focus.

I was let go by EY last September, does anyone know if they are hiring back the people they let go? I am from tax. Given the speculation of oct visa bulletin, where it’s anticipated, similar to last year this year too the date of filing might move ahead 4-5 years, in this scenario my date might become current and would like to file 485 with EY since my current PERM is not yet initiated. Please advise.
