When we take up a new activity, a lot of us try to learn the basics. We’ll ask around and talk with other guys who do what we want to do. We’ll hire a trainer or a coach or an instructor. We buy books and magazines. And, of course, we usually do an internet search. Sometimes we get used to or bored with the latest new thing and move on to something else. Other times we end up really enjoying it. And when we enjoy something we usually keep doing it. Ideally, we also keep trying to learn as much about it as we can. It’s often not the same way with drugs. We don’t ask. We don’t know who or how to ask. We don’t know where to look for information. We can make mistakes and have some misadventures. We’re sometimes surprised by how many guys have been doing speed for years and have never had anyone explain the basics to them.
