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.

I don’t use drugs, but I drink probably more than I should and am trying to cut down. I admire / respect people who can do things in moderation or appreciate their surroundings without chemical assistance : )


Not here!

If you include alcohol it’s like 0. But I haven’t really encountered other (hard) drugs that much. Unless you’re into the clubbing scene I guess

"...but all consultants do..."


I don’t 🧚‍♂️

I don’t use drugs or weed and I often feel judged because of it

Isn’t weed a drug?


I drink alcohol, but I don't use any drugs illegal at the federal level. Btw, caffeine (which I avoid) is a recreational drug too.

How to define drug? Does popper count? Coffee? Sugar?

No. I drink in moderation and that’s it (maybe two drinks a week max with most weeks being nothing)

It is disheartening, almost depressing, to see how many friends - good, smart people - have quit/are leaving Deloitte because of the "pay em the bare minimum" attitude. Unfortunately we are headed down the path of "if you pay peanuts, you'll get monkeys". Isn't consulting about hiring, training, and retaining smart people? Good luck Deloitte.

My department head mentioned to me that there may be a high school teaching position opening in the future and they think I'd be good for it. I'm not sure I'd want to make the change because I've only ever taught middle school, (14 years!), and wonder how big the change in student attitude and behavior would be like? This year though, the kids I have are really draining and it's got me thinking. Would high school students be the same crazy behaviors or would their maturity make a big impact?
