Matt's story

Matt says: ďI knew it was not for me. When I was at school, lots of my friends used to drink and smoke. A few people I knew tried drugs like cannabis and LSD, but I was never interested. I have only drunk alcohol a couple of times because I donít like the taste. But itís not just that, I just donít like the idea of being out of control and not knowing what Iím doing.

Some people think Iím boring because I donít drink, or smoke or take other drugs. But thatís their problem. Thereís plenty of ways I enjoy myself - playing football, clubbing, computer games, going to gigs -without having to be off my head.Ē

Salim's story

Salim says: "OK, I tried quite a few drugs when I was younger -dope, poppers, E, Acid and a bit of speed. You know things like that. I did it quite a lot for a couple of years. I was quite careful, and lucky really not to get caught by the police.

To be honest, I enjoyed it all even though I knew it was risky. Some of my friends were big drinkers and were often in a worse state than me. I was never a big drinker - I'm still not. I still have the odd bit of blow (cannabis), but I seem to be doing it less and less. I've lost interest in it."
