    Always The Odd One

    I've never been interested in alcohol or drugs. I could easily live without them. All throughout high school I never really drank alcohol even though it was kinda the thing to do and there was an awful lot of peer pressure. It made it sort of difficult to socialize because all my...

    Lose The Booze

    Never Experienced The Attraction

    I tried smoking a few times through my life and never got any kicks out of it. I think is there something wrong with my body? What are these feelings people say they get when they smoke? Oh well, if my body fails to respond, I can save myself a pack of money and inconvenience...

    Mostly Without

    After a history of heavy drinking and drug use starting out at a young-ish age(15...I've heard people start as soon as 8, which is why I say young-ish) and the complications it eventually led up too, I can definitely live without either. That is not to say, that at the moment-I...

    I Don't Like The Taste Of Alcohol

    I still do not understand why people love alcohol so much. I am not being judgmental, but everytime I drink alcohol, I cannot stand the bitterness of it. Even my friend said it was very light, for me just to drink a glass of something bitter brings nothing enjoyable. I even think...
