    I Used To Do It.

    When I was in my early 20s I used to do drugs and drink, but I stopped doing that stuff almost 20 years ago. With inflation going up all the time it just doesnt make sense to me. I would rather buy something nice for my home than go drinking or do drugs. I am not an alcoholic...

    I Don't Feel the Pull

    I don't know why, but I didn't feel any desire to do either even though it was a popular thing to do in high school. Possibly this is a function of my Aspergers. If so, I'm glad for it. I couldn't support a dope habit. My book buying takes most of my surplus cash.

    No Thanks

     I think consuming substances to make you act stupid is just pointless, and well, stupid. It didn't take too many "We spent the whole day in a parking lot... shopping carts... woah" stories from my friends to turn me off pot. And why should I kill my brain cells...
