Discussion in 'Afghanistan' started by anglian-sam, Feb 9, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Here is a study into PTSD being treated with Ecstasy tbh i think this is a good idea i have seen a few videos. With american psychotherapists and this really seems to work.

    But apparently us brits wont be useing this: Ecstasy Helps Treat PTSD Patients, Trial Finds - CBS News

    So you thoughts ??

  4. Is the idea here that it doesn't actually cure anything but it does mean you don't give a ****?

  5. It will never work as it would make those suffering from PTSD easily visible to all of the 'normal' people around them. They will be the ones who like crap music, can't stop dancing and chewing and who keep keeling over dead through dehydration.
  6. Yeah good idea.

    The next big thing is to treat depression with smack...
  7. I went to a talk last night on this very topic. Our American cousins appear to be way ahead of our own researchers. LSD also cropped up in the discussions. It's some of the 'medicines' to be taken pre-combat that raised most eyebrows I'm sure. Those clinicians who want to pre-empt the battlefield aftershock and medicate accordingly, now that's going to be the interesting zone.

  8. Viagra? Surely someone who's hard as **** won't get PTSD.

  9. Yes but there is no dependencey on ecstasy ,in the purest of forms MDMA there is no chance of death and especially in a medical enviroment where if the body did start to heat up above its normal temp they can get saline drip into your body to hydrate you.
    In a medical enviroment i think this is a great idea ecstasy was a form of medication before it become a party drug just like ketamin was used in vietnam as a battelfield pain killer to great effect, then it become widely available threw black market sources threw china and india and then was used as a party drug to which people frown on now. why not use it if it helps ??
  10. Sorry but I don't buy in to treatining emotional distress with drugs. But then again I tend to avoid taking any drugs (legal and illegal) full stop. If I start putting pain killers into my system I want to "Feel the benefit" as my old nan would say.
  11. Where does one volunteer? I've got my own chewing gum if that helps?
  12. Why? Because all you've ever been told about drugs is bad?

  13. It would make an interesting Regimental march...

    Ebeneezer Goode, leading light of the scene
    Know what I mean, see
    He created the vibe
    He takes you for a ride and as if by design
    The party ignites like he's comin alive
    He takes you to the top, shakes you all around
    Then back down, you know as he gets mellow
    Then as smooth as the groove that is making you move
    He glides into your mind with a sunny Hello
    A gentleman of leisure, he's there for your pleasure
    But go easy on old Eezer he's the love you could lose
    Extraordinary fellow, like Mr. Punchinello
    He's the kind of geezer who must never be abused
    When you're in town and Ebeneezer is around
    You can sense a presence in the sound of the crowd
    He gets them all at it, the party starts rocking
    The people get excited it's time to shout loud

    E's are Good, E's are Good
    He's Ebeneezer Goode
    E's are Good, E's are Good
    He's Ebeneezer Goode
    E's are Good, E's are Good
    He's Ebeneezer Goode
    E's are Good, E's are Good
    He's Ebeneezer Goode

    That's all I have to say about that.
