Before the gig tonight, Pia and I went to watch the new Trainspotting film.

There’s an awful lot about drug taking in the film, as there was in the original.

It made me reflect on my narcotic past. …

Which basically is that…. I haven’t had one.

Nor  cigarettes, either.

Yes, I’ve had enough alcohol to kill people, but drugs…. nothing at all until about 38, and including everything it’s 2 drags of marijuana and  half a hash cake ( obviously not all at the same evening – in fact over 12 years )

I can say with certainty that drug taking is very much alive amongst the outwardly clean and sensible middle classes, but not me.

Perhaps that’s because I’m NOT outwardly clean and sensible?
