I Don't Drink Or Use Dope

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 70 People

    I Used To Do It.

    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...
