    Can Live Without

    I drink and smoke occasionally. Never tried drugs, never will. I have no problem without them. They are not life's essentials

    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...

    Lose The Booze

    Since I've been on antidepressants I accepted that they impacted my sexual sensitivity. My feeling was it was a reasonable price to pay for the steadiness they provided my daily life. I'd rather be able to deal with any problems that arise with those I love without falling off a...

    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...

    DXM Ruled my Life for a Year It's kind of

    ironic, before I starting religiously using DXM, I had read similar DXM stories to what I am about to share with you. But, being as naive as I was, I assumed the addiction could never happen to me and that it was all drival by weak people. This substance ruled my life for a year...

    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...
