Once again, Dave, I apologize if my comments were hurtful to you. As pej wrote, it came mostly from the sense (perhaps mistaken) that you seemed more excited about the drugs themselves than in the actual therapy side of things. Having had my share of experience with various substances in the past, I have a built-in skepticism about their therapeutic potential in restoring people's overall well-being, even after having read numerous claims and reports to the contrary. And I'm not sure I'd even agree with the easy assertion made by some people here that, hey, Prozac is a drug just like lysergic acid is. Granted, they are both drugs, and just because something is legal doesn't mean that its perfectly safe--hardly!. But their mode of action (not to mention the chronic effects) of both substances is different enough to justify their different status in the world today, even when we all know that the so-called "war on drugs" has mostly been a pathetic sham. But everyone eventually has to follow their own inner voice with these things.

With this said, I wish you all the best--in all sincerity this time.
