March 20, 2009, Newsletter Issue #127: Gay Men's Health Topic: Substance Abuse

Tip of the Week

Substance abuse is a wide-ranging health issue for all communities. However, the rate of abuse is higher among gay men. From alcohol abuse to a number of other drugs such as marijuana, ecstasy, amyl nitrate ("poppers"), and amphetamines. In order to keep yourself safe from the affects of these drugs, it's best to abstain from them entirely, since the long-term affects of them on physical health have not been concretely established. Another reason to abstain from substance abuse is that it will keep your mind clear as you make decisions about potential partners. In the long run, this improves your overall health -- both mental and physical.
