    not that i have any crazy addictions or anything like that...but i do like to have fun occasionally....i'm in DEP for the Air Force right now and i don't leave until 27 Mar. 2007...so i'm just wondering from anybody who's been in the situation before how often (if at all) you get drug tested while being in DEP

    not sure, but if you want any hope of getting a job with a clearance you might wanna stop smokin the cheeba/any other thing you might do occaisionaly for "recreational pruposes" now.

    I dunno if you've ahd the joy of filling out this particular form either, but one of the questions is if you have ever done any narcotics. they sorta allow a little experimentation but they do draw the line after a couple uses.

    quit the drugs now or get away from the military. you don't have any idea how bad you could fuck up your life "just having fun".

    Agreed.

    I'm sure you can find something else to do where people's lives aren't at stake. If you're so weak-minded that you need an illicit substance which you know will jeopardize your intended career to have fun, you are not what the military wants or needs.

    Oh but guys, its not like he is using drugs, only once in a while. He isnt a drug head or anything. Can you really fault a kid for wanting to have fun with a mind altering drug that could potentially get someone killed? I'm sure he will stop once he gets in the military. We may see him on here in a few months asking "Does anyone know how often the AF drug tests? I don't use drugs or anything but I like to have fun."

    not that it matters but smoking weed ONE single time within the past 6 months (and i pretty much chose that it will be my last time cuz it just doesn't interest me like it used to) doesn't make me a criminal who's going to be putting people's lives at stake....i love all the people in the military i've talked to...a lot of them are 100% anti-drug and will talk down to you from up on their high ass pedestal like you're the scum of the earth...meanwhile they go off every chance they get and get drunk to the point of vomiting and then brag the next day to their buddies about the "sluts" they fed alcohol to at the bar and then took advantage of....but wait...it's silly of me to think that alcohol actually kills more brain cells and each year more accidents and deaths occur and more lives are ruined because of booze than any other "drug"

    so you guys are right, what the hell was i thinking....

    are you comparing alcohol to "illegal" drugs?

    it's not your wanting to have a good time that anyone is questioning. It's your lack of judgement and self control. You know that there will be drug tests that could potentially end your career before it even begins, and yet you put it all at risk for "one last time". I don't want someone like that with a loaded weapon anywhere behind me when I yell "cover me while I move!".

    Say whatever you want to attempt to justify what you did in your own mind. But the fact is that you are standing on the threshold of taking on a job that will entail some significant danger, both to you and to people that will depend on your ability to make tough decisions and follow through with them. Many of those decisions will be incredibly unpopular with people that you will spend a lot of time with. Get used to doing the right thing even when it doesn't feel good or isn't the popular thing to do.

    Or just go away. Either way, the soldiers that would be depending on you will be better off for it.

    Something doesn't add up... if this was really the case why would you be worried about how often people in DEP get drug tested?

    I'm sorry to jump in on the bandwagon on this, but I agree. If you can't find alternative ways to have fun that aren't irresponsible then get out now

    Smoking can cause cancer.
    Smoking weed can cause stupid.
    Smoking weed while trying to join the military where it is forbidden is very stupid.
    Tell me how this is responsible.
    There may be some people who can smoke weed and function in civilian life. Sadly this is not the case for the majority of people. The thread starter has proven to be one of the latter through his actions.
