Past drug use
« on: Jul 31, 2015, 09:10 »
Hello everyone,
Im currently 18 years old aspiring to get into the Navy Nuclear Program. I scored a 94 on my ASVAB too. When i was in high school i liked to try new things. I was young and dumb and quite honestly I am very ashamed of my past drug use. Every since the thought of joining the Navy popped into my head I quit my drug use. I made mistakes when I was in high school and i do not want those mistakes to cost me a chance at the program. All i want to do with my life right now is to be a Nuke. My past drug usage are the following: ecstasy( twice), Marijuana( more than 10), shrooms( 3 times), acid( 3 times), painkillers( twice). Now again that was my old life . I am so ashamed of it. I wish i could just erase that part of my life. Im a different person now. I want nothing to do with drugs. Now to the question. Will my past drug use eliminate me from getting into the Nuclear Power Program?
Thanks

It will not 100% eliminate you from the program, however it will make things more difficult for you. You must ask yourself if: 1) Was I ever charged by the police and 2) Is there any record of drug use (either medical or recreational). If the answer to both of those is 'No' then you have a good chance of it never even bothering you. If you answered 'Yes' to either of those then you will want to speak to a recruiter to see if there are any waivers that can get you into the program.

Realize that if you don't admit to it up front and someone finds out about your past drug use, you're is for a rapid transition out of the military, with a loss of a lot of money.

That implies that the person should lie about it.  They should not.

If you have no criminal record, don't worry about it.  The ranks would be thinned severely if anyone who had gotten high as a kid got rejected. Just keep your mouth shut and good luck.

If you mean do not volunteer information not asked for, yes. If you mean lie, bad advice.

I would recommend being honest with the recruiter and having an idea of other rates you would like to apply for, as a back up.

If you cannot imagine yourself being in the Navy with a different job, I do not recommend joining. Simply put, doing this job is much more tolerable, and even satisfying, if you appreciate what it is accomplishing.

Good luck.
