    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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Always The Odd One
