    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...

    I Am Innocent Like A Lamb,

    I might be weird and unique at the same time, but I've never had, not a single drop of alcohol, I have never smoked, never tried drugs, I am innocent as a lamb. It's my mom's merits, my friends smoke and drink but my mother has taught me that it only creates problems, I love her...

    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

    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...

    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...
