    Everyone I Know Does Them But It's Just Unappealing.

    Hmmm before I was born my dad was into cocain. But he is way clean now. My three oldest siblings all got into lots of "party drugs". My third oldest went to rehab and my oldest sibling still does them. All but one of my friends smoke pot. Some are into pills. I take...

    Sometimes, I feel proud about it.

    Then, I realize just what kind of society we live in if people feel proud about something as 'small' as being drug free.

    About a year ago I got into the wrong group of

    friends, I've done some really bad things such as take drugs. I started to rely on them. The last 3 months I haven't touched anything apart from weed. Biggest mistake of my life trying what I did.

    I grew up in a drug-addicted family, and if it's one thing I decided long ago- it's that I wouldn't end up like that. I have smoked pot and popped a few pills in my day, but all of that is behind me, and I am now 100% clean. I intend to stay that way (ok, I might take a puff of a...

    It isn't something I am especially proud of.

    In fact, it must be a very nice thing to do, so many people do it!! Perhaps, it isn't that good, and if it was legalised, people would not bother.

    Absolutely.

    Damn straight, I don't do drugs. Its one thing, if its prescribed and NOT abused. Its another to use it in entirely the wrong way, to let yourself become addicted.

    I hate drugs and I have seen first hand what they can do to people.  I have never had an urge to try drugs.  I get sick to my stomach real easy anyway and just the smell of pot makes me sick.

    No Drugs

    Would they make me crazier or normal? I have considered eating pot for my MS symptoms and stuff. But I don't think I would like the taste of it. Certainly don't want to smoke it, since smoke would bother me.
