It is evident that people have very strong independant views on smoking, i suggest keeping those views to yourself as i dont feel the need to get personal.

Just enjoy your trip and do what you wanna do!

i can confirm from my own experience and in response to some of the things said in this forum.

when i was in spain: the english got so drunk and got into many fights with themselves!

when i lived in london: i can confirm that the south africans were probably one of the worst that i have come across when it comes to drink. im only referring to the afrikaans, not the english speaking ones mainly. they drank so much more, more than they could handle. and fought with bouncers. and they are very loud!!!

having said that i have heard that in south africa - south africans are the best of people!

i think when one is in a foreign country you get the bad eggs. when i was in the usa i thought a lot of the irish that i met were scum of the earth. having said that i am irish and i am convinced the british are far worse.

the irish can be too very bad, however i dont really see them fight, they are normally loud and drink until they can no longer stand.

but even in england i saw way more fights in the streets with the english in london than for example the streets in dublin.

i dont understand why people smoke joints, i used to for a short period of time but it does nothing for me...it just makes me tired more than anything else. how does that benefit me before i hit a nightclub?

and smoking in general should be banned. it does nothing but harm...and i used to smoke myself...and have the odd one here and there.

Well said, guys. If your responses have something to do with the original question, great. If you're posting a personal opinion about marijauna use and/or smoking cigarettes, please find a more appropriate thread in another forum such as Off Topic. Whether you agree or disagree with someone's decision to imbibe is neither here nor there and of no use. Thank you in advance for keeping this thread from going astray any further.

where can i get some charlie in oz?

in terms of any drugs, when it comes to looking for anything remotely illegal...ask the bums on the street and go to the red light district areas....that my son is where you will find all weird and wonderful kinds of things!

Alistare,
Unfortunately you are already here, otherwise I would have said don't bother coming to Oz -we don't need another dope laden dead head. One day you will wake up - or maybe not !!

Try to get your kicks from reality, you know; fresh air, friendly people and wide open spaces not from behind a sleepy doped out stupor.

And the no smoking in pubs is great - why should we have to breath in the foul lung air from the selfish inconsiderates, whether they be locals or vistors.

What is the preoccupation with drinking till you get blotto !! Seems to be the stereotype for the young 'British' tourist.
A close friend - young lady (28) from Wales who is no prude is absolutly ashamed of the way many Brits behave when away from home, she quoted how disrespectful and abusive they are in Spain especially - maybe a few are getting out here too.

By all means, have a few drinks but not until you make a complete fool of yourself and fall over your own shadow.
Drink sensibly over good conversation, stay in control so you can enjoy the experience.

Some good words, i am from england and i am glad the smoking is being banned because it gives me a bad throat and causes damage. I dont get drunk to often infact i have never been drunk. I drink normally 2 pints once a month or something.

It's all well and good that smoking is being banned in pubs in the UK. It's being banned in many places here in the US also. Once more, this thread is not about smoking in pubs. Let's please keep it on topic. Thank you again. ;)

yeah...this thread isnt about smoking its about how to find drugs.

but why are the mods endorsing drugs on tp?
its practically illegal in every single country, okay most countrys. except for amsterdam, but even in amsterdam it is restricted to some degree.

when ever there is hash / cannabis or anything else about then a long comes his little friends. mr e, mr lcd, charlie boy etc why? because people always want something stronger.

people think smoking hash, the green stuff etc is all safe. in some respects it is...but let me ask you this, i have known plenty of people that have smoked the stuff for 5-8 years, before they touched it was all good, but now they are retarded from smoking too much of the stuff.

i wonder why it is illegal? i wonder why so many countrys take a hard line approach on such a drug?

i am sure the same laws apply in the uk to australia. caught with any kind of drug. no matter how small or big...if your on a working holiday visa you will be kicked out of the country on the next available flight. and guess what, your own country police will be waiting for you at the airport when you land to question you for another couple of days.
