What do you mean by worse? you are asking a wrong person...

really that is clearly coming from someone that has never done either drug. just because the government or your after school teacher tells you that your life will be ruined. Well your life can be ruined by having too much sex or anything else. I have done both of these on numerous times but have done it in moderation and never have done them regularly. Both of them have made me feel really good and enjoy mayself while on them. Like anything you feel better while on it then off it. I have had a night of a binge going from up to down all night. then have gone two years without. It will only ruin your life if you let it.
