I have used alcohol on an irregular basis since I was a teenager, and
caffeine as well. I don't smoke tobacco, and as for the rest, you are
asking me to incriminate myself.

I am quite knowledgable and experienced, and I will leave it at that.

This is the typical first attack of opponents to my arguments, the "you
must have never used drugs if you think this way" routine. If you had
actually read my previous posts, you would not be even making such
ludicrous statements. In which case, I can say that your statements are
worthless until you actually DO read what I've already said.
