    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

    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 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...
