    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    alcohol to me is for enjoyment purposes, not to just get wasted and forget the day. I understand and respect others who are different from me but I just steer away from them.
