    just spoke to my mum about it
    happened when i was 2, i stole my Nan's pills and ended up spending a week in hospital
    first tome i was told this

    i guess it won't matter if i was only 2?
  5. I think the Army will be prepared to overlook that one!

  6. Guess that's really for the MO at ADSC to decide and not a bunch of strangers on the internet mate?
  7. Accidental ingestion and overdose are two very different things. Do you have any residual medical issues caused by the tablets? If not I doubt it'll have much bearing! The thing with 'overdose' is the peripheral issues around it ie self harm, suicidal thoughts, mental instability.

  8. As long as the drugs taken did not cause you to have a long term health issue, you should be fine.
  9. Seriously
