I have done my fair share of partying but I am a non drug user now and consider myself pretty educated when it comes to substance abuse. I have seen many of my buddies over the years go from recreational drug users to full blow junkies. I have watched family members struggle with addiction and been dragged to numerous NA birthday cake ceremonies.
I dont want to make a generalization but I think some of this might come down to age. I didnt mind it in my teens and early twenties but once you hit your thirties you dont want to even deal with it anymore.
I play hockey to have fun and maybe drink a few beers after the games. I dont feel like dealing with the mood swings and all of the other crap that goes along with coke heads. This is why I said to tell the guy the team is full and let him be somebody elses problem.
