    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.

    Never Had An Urge

    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.

    Wish I Could Find Some Alcohol/drug-free Friends.

    No Judgement

    I'm not here to tell you what you should or should not do. I'm only here to say that I am drug free, never tried, never used, never will. I could claim all the high moral values in the world, but the truth is, I can't tell my daughter to say no if I said yes.
