We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

  1. An update on the chat function

    Chat has always been an immensely popular function on DF. It adds a dynamic aspect and allows more personal contact. I have always enjoyed our chat meetings. As the site has grown in size and number of website users, so have the requirements of chat software. Some years ago it became clear that our software of that time could no longer hold up. Some chat meetings has up to 200 members chatting away. It was crazy, frantic but nice. Too bad that the popularity & activity would often put an...
  2. A Place for Veterans

    After chatting with a few other Military Veterans it was brought to my attention how it would be nice if we had our own place to discuss the many ways the military has affected our lives, through addiction, disability, health care, and what not. So for my fellow veterans please join us in the new social group: Military Veterans [URL]http://www.drugs-forum.com/forum/group.php?groupid=505[/URL] This group is not restricted to US Vets, but any country in which you served.
  3. The death of vbulletin & the birth of a new drugs-forum.com

    Drugs-Forum is at an important crossroad and will never be the same again. The situation is similar as 8 years ago. In 2005 we migrated drugs-forum.com from webwiz forum software to vbulletin. Webwiz was simply not good enough for us as a growing community anymore. We needed a better platform, better functions, a more professional design and something with much better security. vbulletin forum software offered that. vbulletin had a long history with drug related forums, as part of...
  4. I Joined DF 8 Years Ago Today...

    I hardly ever use my blog at all, and really try to avoid posting about relatively useless things such as this - But I figured I would make an exception to both of the above today. As of today (the 21st), it's been 8 years since I joined the most awesome web site on the internet... Putting this in perspective, I've been coming here nearly every day for a fairly significant percentage of my life. Minus a year's hiatus back in 2007-2008, my regular daily routine has pretty much remained...
  5. Watching my first DF storm...

    Woah, Nelly. Recently there's been quite a lot written to do with reps on DF, earning them, not earning them etc. I feel like a tourist who has suddenly noticed there's a tornado hit after only being on holiday for a day or two - not really knowing what to do, or where it came from, but with an overwhelming desire to help the local community to minimise the damage and work with people you don't even know to restore the town to the strong place it was before the storm hit....but also...
  6. First few days as a member of DF

    First impressions of DF are good. I'm glad I joined and feel good that I am contributing to the continuation of the site. I have tried quite a few times to post in forums and groups but always get the error message saying something along the lines of "your post is less than 5 characters". I have submitted a support ticket. Overall, I am having fun just exploring the site, getting a feel for things and reading some excellent, informative posts. I'm looking forward to progressing in...
  7. Am I Being Helped or Harmed?

    For a while, I had stopped taking my psychiatric medications. I intended to just stop all drug use and not be chained to pharmaceuticals. I spent five months in a more and more severely psychotic state. I was starting to contemplating ending life when I decided to go back to the doctor and talk about why I stopped his medical instructions. He has changed a few things about my medical regimen and I feel a lot better. Before I stopped them, I was feeling very unwilling to function....
  8. Who can design Flyers for Drugs-Forum?

    Gassssssssss: Skip the gradients on the text, makes it really hard to read. Otherwise it looks pretty cool IMHO. I got some help with my design work. Alfa and now Potter. If somebody else has commented and I missed it, I'm sorry.
  9. 6 Years at Drugs-Forum: Looking Back

    My 6-year DF anniversary is January 21 (So this is a day early, but if I don't post this now I know I'll forget for weeks). It's been over two years since I've done one of these (not a huge fan of blogging, to be honest) and figured this would be a good excuse to blow the dust off... This is basically my post from the History of Drugs-Forum thread, edited and greatly expanded on. Mostly because I am too lazy to re-type all the basic points out again....
  10. What Drugs Forum mean to Swim

    It's amazing how much this community has effected so many lives, and I'm thinkin swim has been touched the most. DF has taught swim to not trust the media. Swim has learned that every news story isn't intended to inform the masses with current events, but to create a TV show based on real life events to create shock value. It seems like there's not much difference between cops, and CNN. He now nitpicks every story, and they end up causing more questions than answers. Their biased...
  11. quality & self-restrictions

    so swim thinks he should post more quality stuff and less blabla and improve his spelling, as he is sometimes just typing the way he would speak, which just doesnt read well for others.. he will not look at most sections, just nootropics is a topic he is intrigued by as well as looking for people to help with opiate w/d he really thinks that this forum needs a design overhaul, but more importantly a "health & well-being" section. theres a desperate need for it!
  12. Why can't I be perfect and be able to save everyone from them selves?

    It would make things so much easier. God this get's tiring after a while. It hurts to see people doing dumb things over and over and over and over. We try as hard as we can to provide good information and do people listen? Here, a lot of them do, but still, there's so many that don't and that starts to weigh you down. Try as we might we just can't save everyone from themselves and that fucking sucks. Today, I spent a lot of my time reporting self incrimination, horribly...

  14. State of the site

    2007, a year of dreams and growth. 2007 has been a year of dreams and ideas that came together more and more, leading to the present state of the site. My aim was to have this site become less forum centered and create a 1 + 1 = 3 effect by adding supplementary functionality of wiki, blog, social networking, design and more. A thorough study f the internet and the feedback of staff indicated where we should go. VincentVan once told me that this site is always in motion. As soon as one gets...
