Yes

No

Side Score: 20

It's possible. Everyone has the ability to control themselves. I borrow a friend's electronic cigarette every now and again when he's around, and the nicotine hasn't made me thirst for my own cigarettes yet. And it never will.

I don't recommend it but of course it's possible... I've done it myself.

Side: yes

Yes. Caffeine is a drug and i bet you have drinked coffee before a Pumpkin Latte from 7 Eleven. Still i won't reccommend drugs to anyone except something like caffeine. I will allow that to my unborn teenagers.

People will do drugs if they want to. So if you have children, you can't restrain them from doing what they want. You can only hold onto them as long as you live. Just saying but not really important to the debate. :)

Yes, as a matter of fact many u.s. presidents are previous drug users. Also in many places drugs have been de-criminalized. Now a few on this particular site will share bogus fear tactics about drug abuse but it's all just that 'fear tactics".

i think, no... how many people took drugs just for fun, thinking that it would be at once... but that they start again and again, and it lead to drug addiction which is very serious problem nowadays... young children, teenagers often suffered with drug addiction...

I would like to start with What kind of question is "Is it possible to try drugs once and not to get used?" Excuse me, there seems to be a grammatical error here. I will say if you are asking if using once can lead to an addiction? The answer is no. Either you like it and do it for recreational use or you don't. Using a drug once was a choice. Deciding to continue is a choice. Deciding never to pick up a even better choice. Long term use will lead to addiction its inevitable. Using once is your decision.

I believe we aren't addicted to it after we try it once. It's the peer pressure that makes people smoke more and people smoke more later because it's a social thing for them. Once they make it a habit, they have willpower to not do it. They just crave for the nicotine after smoking several times.

Addiction takes more than one use. You may really enjoy a drug after the first time and continue using it for fun until it is a real addiction.

Cocaine Hydrochloride is the king of drugs.

2nd place would be the lovely Oxycontin.

Honorable mentions include Caffeine, Alcohol, THC, Lexapro.

Worst drug is NICOTINE. This is a waste of your money and your time. Addictive potential to nicotine is stronger than oxycodone and cocaine. The pleasure of nicotine is only MILD. For the money and considering the addictive potential, nicotine is a WASTE OF YOUR TIME/LIFE/MONEY.

I will not ever try drugs they are harmful to your body and you can get arrested for selling drugs or using drugs. Even if you try it once you probably will try it again and again until its an addiction. So if you try it once then you could possibly want more of it. Just like people who had there first cigeratte they kept going on and on until it was an addiction it can happen the same thing with drugs.

I tried a cigarette and hated it – it tasted like shit; so clearly not everyone, as you said, “keeps going on and on” until it becomes an addiction.

"I will not ever try drugs they are harmful to your body"

Most entheogenic substances, which due to our neurotically insecure soceity are classified as drugs, have no discernibly adverse physiological effects on the human body.

"Even if you try it once you probably will try it again and again until its an addiction. "

Many drugs are not even physically addictive, especially when compared to legal drugs e.g. tobacco

He can I ask you something? How do you bold the stuff that I said? I never understand how you do that and many people do it?

As a Christian I do not do drugs or will even use it because once you try it once you try it you would want to do it again. Same thing with cigarettes, you try one and then you want more and more until it comes to be an addiction.

Um no, after you try one it doesn’t automatically make you want more. Shrooms, for example, never make you addicted to them. Another example is smoking marijuana; provided it is in a bong the addiction value is vastly decreased. And you can’t tell me that after having one beer you are going to be lead into an addiction (and yes, contrary to popular belief, alcohol IS a drug). Another drug is aspirin and coffee – and after having an aspirin or a cup of coffee you aren’t going to become addicted. What I’m basically saying is that no, not all drugs lead to an addiction; I can happily say that I’ve tried drugs and haven’t become addicted to them. Some drugs can ultimately lead to an addiction but in no way all of them. Also the need to include your religious status in the argument is pointless and invalid and in no way should affect the argument. Just because you are part of a religious organisation it doesn’t mean you can’t do something (last time I checked your “God” gave you free will), it is just frowned upon (which it shouldn’t be; but that’s for another argument).

I can tell you are relatively new to this site, so sorry if it feels like I’m attacking you – but consider this constructive criticism - I just want you to argue more intelligently, there are too many idiots on this site that talk out their ass.

Sometimes people when they try coffee or when they try it they want more and more. And about my God gave me free will. He gave everyone free will not only the Christian but everyone he gave them free will. But there will be conquences because you choose your own way and not God's way which you will be going to hell because your a Satanist and you believe in Satan and worship the devil when its God's great enemy that He is going to defeat in the end times that come.

alright im not going to come out and tell your going to hell or ur a bad person because people have a choice to repent or not i just think that the majority of the people who have tried drugs become hooked on them especially if your talking about the hard drugs like cocaine and weed Lsd and heroin cigareetes are included people have died because they became hooked on those drugs and even if you do not think your hooked ur always going to want more same with alcohol everytime u go out( not u just in general) to a party with your friends they always go to drink and get wasted i saw it everyday with my friends who i dont assoicate with anymore because of lifestyle diffrences i personally think drugs and alcohol sucks never tried them never will and hey mabe you can contain yourself but the majority of pepople cant

There is no specific level at which drug use moves from casual to problematic. It varies by individual. So I take the view that from the first consuming drugs , you can get used to it. Drug abuse and addiction is less about the amount of substance consumed or the frequency, and more to do with the consequences of drug use. No matter how often or how little you’re consuming, if your drug use is causing problems in your life—at work, school, home, or in your relationships—you likely have a drug abuse or addiction problem!

once you want drugs u keep wanting them and wanting them take crack addicts and weed users they abuse something that is rreally made for medicine or tabacoo no wonder we have somany cancers its mainly because of drugs use and yes some are genetic but drugs and pollution play a big part i live life straight edge i personally think drugs and alcohol sucks i dont want anything in me thats going to harm my body but yes once u try u get hooked i know ppl who have

Side: No

No. Once consumed, drugs will have an immediate effect on the human body. The person will be addicted and cannot get out of it.

Side: No

Furthermore the person will keep on taking the drug to satisfy his or her craving.

Side: No

This will result in a vicious cycle that is hard to break out of and the person's life will be affected forever.

Side: No
