Yeah, I believe it. There are a lot of meth freaks and coke heads these days.
Yes. Me and my friends all use illegal drugs to lose weight. With thinspirations like La Lohan, why wouldn't we?

    Wow. I sure hope that many people don't use drugs to diet. I have known several people with eating disorders and know how it can make them do irrational things, but I can't imagine that 1 in 7 of all people use drugs to diet. Yikes!

    I know two people that do that. One does it to stay thin and another did it to lose baby-weight. Only one still uses drugs though.

    Not only drugs like Coke and Meth, but prescription medications like ritalin or aderall, that's pretty popular.

    Nobody.
    Living in LA, it's hard not to see cokeheads roaming around. You see girls who've gotten plastic surgery and breast implants, and then you notice their wrists are way too skinny and you just know they do drugs as well. It's really sad. :/

    I don't know if that many people are taking illegal drugs with the purpose of losing weight, but I could believe that 1 out of 7 people use illegal drugs and lose weight as a side effect.

    If that's the truth, then why are 60% of Americans fat?
  • Corey Smokey 2007/10/17 19:58:32

    well, 1 in 7 is way less than 6 out of 10. that's why.

    That's one thing about some gay men, they're not FAT, and they take very good care of their bodies. Maybe us straight guys need to do the same. :)

    But I don't doubt that there is a large percentage of people out there that use either illegal drugs or dangerous drugs to achieve their physical goals.

    I actaully think that they might even be higher. You used 2 poorly airbrushed pic, BTW.

    No problem. :-) This 'pro-ana' movement kills me!
  • Corey Snarkos... 2007/10/22 18:21:29

    I know. As if the original pictures weren't too small and disturbing to begin with.
  • Snarkos... Corey 2007/10/22 18:25:15
    Snarkosaurus
    Exactly! The before pics don't disgust me... but one of my best friends is now claiming to be 'pro-ana' because she wants to look like the after. Argh.
  • Corey Snarkos... 2007/10/22 18:28:43

    You better be a good friend and snap her out of it.

    It would not surprise me if the number was indeed accurate, but would like to read the article and see the source of their stats.

    The statistics are frightening. Illegal drugs are on the rise. Whatever happened to the anti-drug campaigns? Our government continues to aid other countries while our "Rome is burning".
