ICE wasn’t Andy’s first drug – no that was alcohol. He started bingeing at only 14. After using cannabis and some heroin, and then stopping for a season, Andy commenced ICE use after the death of his mother – it motivated him to get out of bed…but sadly much more than that followed.

Andy candidly, but unemotionally shares his concerns about the poor use of drug policy and the utter madness of ‘ICE Smoking Rooms’. Check out the full interview here…

Almost half of those questioned said they preferred sex while under the influence of alcohol because it helped them lose their inhibitions and be more adventurous.

Researchers, who surveyed 3000 women aged 18-50, found on average they slept with eight men, but were drunk with at least five, and on two occasions couldn't remember the man's name the next day.

Four out of 10 had been tipsy when sleeping with a partner for the first time.

Dalgarno Comment!

Wow! No, that's not a 'wow' of shock or surprise at the data, rather a WOW based on the amazement at what is under the veneer of the so called 'sophisticated and liberated culture'. Our organisation has been party to helping, amongst others, women discover that they are more than a mere 'sexual' or 'domestic' function. In fact, as an organisation, we have started with the premise that all human beings are 'Image bearers' have incredible, remarkable worth that goes way beyond the shallowness of our current 'if you look sexy you're worth something' culture. Hey, we get it, if all that you are immersed in tells you that if you 'aint' sexy and prepared to present 'sexual' you're behind the game. What is staggering is after 40 years of so called 'femme liberty' we are back to woman feeling undervalued as a relationship building partner because they believe their 'bodies' or 'sexual prowess' don't rate! Come on people, we are smarter than this, aren't we?
