Default Did James ever struggle with addiction like his bandmates?

Like obviously Jimmy and D'Arcy did. And probably Corgan? Like after his mom died he just stayed home doing molly for days

Maybe James is so chill he's immune to all that

they all did tons of acid in the early days though not sure that qualifies as an addiction. pretty sure james and d'arcy also did lots of ecstasy with Corgan in Courtney Love's hot tub or something

James is so chill and laid back I always wondered if he was stoner.

Haven't you done acid before? I thought you would know that it's non-addictive. It's not the sort of thing that lends itself to addiction.

i've done a mildly decent bit of drugs [alcohol, kava, dph, dxm, adderall, shrooms, weed, acid] and somehow i don't really have any huge desire to do any of them again [even the addictive ones] besides alcohol

fun

I really fucking wish I could smoke. It's so much safer than alcohol and has lots of the effects I use alcohol for

but i live i fucking motherfucking indiana. and my parents probably wouldn't approve [i'd move out but it's kind of a waste of money just to do drugs. also my drums are at home]

I'm not sure if I buy the "did tons of acid" story. Seems like something that Corgan likely concocted to give the album some extra perceived legitimacy. Maybe he did it like 3 or 4 times or something

I think James’ “addiction” is his co-dependency with Billy. He just sits there while Billy goes off and literally takes up zero space in interviews, even when directly questioned. D’Arcy mentioned in her interview with Brett that he pretty much never dared cross Billy and that she was disappointed he wouldn’t stand up for her re: the reunion tour.

D'arcy said a lot of things in that interview and the comments section in Buttcannon's website.

I have done acid an unknown number of times; we'll put it like that. Anything can be psychologically addictive. There are people who are addicted to weed.

there is the possibility you are right, but Corgan has talked pretty extensively about the band's heavy use of LSD in the early days. he detailed it in the confessions. during the parking garage practices, they apparently took acid 2 at a time and jammed the fuck out

also Billy's disjointed and tenuous grasp on reality checks with someone who is not that smart and just tripped acid like 500 times

I've just never gotten LSD user vibes from Corgan at all. He had too big of an ego and always got set off from these little superficial slights. Someone who had experience with LSD wouldn't give 2 shits about stuff like that.

Think back to Billy and his SPIN article with Kim Thayl, that aint that typical behavior from someone 3 years removed from heavy LSD use.

I don't watch porn anymore. Watching runaways being exploited while making yourself orgasm with your own hand is some messed up and perverted/degenerate behavior and not what god or nature had intended for us with our sexual biology

Try and save your loads, bro (unless you're trying to impregnate a loved one). Gives the human soul more vitality and energy. That's why boxers and athletes will never whack off or have sex at least a week or 2 before a big game/fight

orgasm is gods gift for growing ones family by having children. Historically, it's never meant to be this sterile act of degeneracy used for ones excess

orgasm is biology; orgasm is an incentive to procreate. but the world's overpopulated and we don't need more souls - let's wank until we feel content
