    My first dalliance with drugs was after my O-Level. I was going home fresh from school. It was cold and wet. I passed by a roadside kiosk and bought a cigarette. But I am wondering whether tea and coffee are drugs in their own right since there is such a thing as caffeine addiction.

    My first drug was marijuana. Then after that it was mushrooms, but I stuck with marijuana for a long time. I'm glad that's all I stuck with. I was always too scared to try anything too hard.

    My first drug must have been either alcohol and cigarettes, but I am betting it was actually alcohol because I grew up with an alcoholic mother who would encourage me to take sips of her beer since I was 5 years old. That is how everything started, I guess.

    I did not have a first drug unless you call people a drug. In my years on this planet I think that maybe I have been more addicted to some of the wrong people as opposed to any drug.

    The first drug I used was some smokeless tobacco. I don't what it was laced with because it took seconds to get you feeling weird. I was about 12 at that time. Before then though each year at Christmas time we had a [disgusting] alcohol-drinking tradition [make the boys men it was called].

    My first drug was a cigarette. There were cigarette remains everywhere when I was growing up. My father used to be a chain smoker. Anyway I would take the remains and light them and smoke when I was about 8 years old. I was not alone but had two of my friends with me.

    From there I used to take the bottles of alcohol my father left.

    My first drug was cigarettes. I started smoking it when I was 11 out of curiosity. Then I tried smoking marijuana when I turned 16. But I never got addicted to both of them. Now I don't smoke anything at all.

    I took a hallucinogenic mushroom two years ago. It was horrible, probably the worst day in my life. The night was even worse. Absolutely terrifying and the things I saw still scare me today. This experience made me terrified of drugs and I never tried anything again.

    My first drug was marijuana and luckily it was my last drug. After smoking pot twice with these girls back in high school, I didn't really liked the feeling in my lungs nor the taste so I stopped and I have never touched or like marijuana ever since luckily.

    The first drug that I tried was cigarette. I became addicted to cigarettes when I was around 15-16. I used to hate smokers in my childhood but I became a smoker as I read the peak of puberty. When I reached the age of 18, I decided to live a healthy life. With the support of my family, friends, success stories, I was finally able to leave cigarettes.

    My very first drug was hydrocodone (lortab). I look back at it and still consider it the worst mistake I have ever made in my life. Life went through a downward spiral after that day. Fast.

    Well, as you've said the first drug thing is really relative, but I think it was alcohol maybe, my parents used to party almost every single weekend on my house, I was an 11 year old curious boy and it was pretty easy for me to take a little bit of it, I didn't like it at all, until now I don't like how alcohol tastes.

    The first drug I tried was called Nitrovat. It is a clinical drugs given for the patients of clinical depression. I began with one tablet a week, usually during the weekend.Then I went with two tablets in a week and then finally thrice a week. However, I used nitrovat just for six months.

    My first drugs (at a very young age) were pot and alcohol. For some reason, there was never a drug that I was afraid to try. When I was in my early teens, my best friend and I were in a very big hurry to grow up. We would sneak out and go party with guys, and there was always alcohol and drugs available. Acid, mushrooms, etc.

    The funny thing is, I have smoked a ton of pot in my life, and I don't even like the way pot makes me feel! It was always just anything to get high, I suppose.

    I guess everyone's first drug was coffee but since no one considers that as a drug. I would say alcohol was my first drug.
    I was revolted by it first but then I slowly started to understand how it feels to be high on alcohol.

    Ah, the very first drugs were coffee, alcohol and cigarettes sure, don't know exactly under which order, but they were with me for some years...

    Mine would probably be cigarettes, I had about two when I was 16 and I haven't touched one ever since. I didn't see the point in it or the enjoyment then and I don't bother with it now. I guess I was just lucky. I tried alcohol around the same age and I hated the taste, which was enough to put me off for the rest of my life. The only other drug I tried was marijuana, which I quite enjoyed, but due to a lack of interest and time, I don't smoke it any more.

    Mine was alcohol. I was drinking way before I tried smoking cigarettes. We were allowed to drink at a very young age. My brothers and I were on our way to being alcoholics before graduating highschool.
