I Don't Need Drugs and Alcohol to Have Fun

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 19,141 People

    Why get drunk? What's the point?

    You might act like an ***. Or black out. Where's the fun in that? If your drinking because of life issues it will still be there but with a hangover. And don't get me started on drugs. T

    Well I don't smoke or drink,

    never have and absolutely hate drugs but still have a great deal of fun whenever I am out .. in fact most of the time I have more fun than the people who are drinking or getting high and wasted on stuff .. I for one do not see how having fun and doing these things are related...

    I have done some substances

    and have had drinks, but it does not enhance my ability to have fun. I don't even know if I like drugs or not, but I don't feel a need to do them. Drinking is different, it is a social thing that is acceptable to be doing around anyone, but you can't be snorting lines in front...

    This year I've decided to not drink alcohol.

    This is to focus on my health and fitness. I get a lot of negative feedback when I'm in social situations. I wish people would just respect my choice instead of pressure me. I can enjoy myself just like they can.

    I have never needed illegal

    and legal drugs nor alcohol to have fun in my life. I love the way I am without all the drama with drugs and alcohol.

    We can go out at midnight to a late night cafe

    and watch senior citizens sing classical karaoke and buy my a mocha and we'd still have a great time.

    Alcohol. Drinks. Cigarettes.

    Scruff. The modern society is almost defined by these terms. No matter where you go, you'll stumble upon it. And I hate it. I don't hate you for drinking. I hate alcohol for being such a big part of everyone's life. All my friends like to drink. My girlfriend likes to drink...

    Recently I have been on my school excursion in

    Greece. So, of course, we went out every night and everyone was drinking and doing other stuff. But I haven't! And I had so much fun and I felt so good. Maybe it was the music but I had the time of my life. Without any alcohol or drugs.

    I'm already high off of life.

    If I wanted to drink or smoke weed, I would have already done it because I know people who do it and I've been offered alcohol on prom night. However, I think I'll wait till I'm 21 to drink and I don't ever want to smoke or do drugs. That's not what I'm into. I'm above the...

    I never go out to parties anymore

    because all they do is drink and smoke illegally. It's just not the vibe I want to be around.

    Life can be so enjoyable

    when totally sober. Your mind is clear. You body is healthy and functioning the way God intended. So much better to face your problems head on and deal with them with a pure heart and a fully functioning mind.

    people feel more relaxed in order to break the shyness. But in my experience, by having a boost of caffeine it would act the same way. It could be by a cola or by consuming coffee. The bad thing is I may turn to chatty! Regarding drugs... it definitely is a no-no-no. I like to...

    I prefer to have fun

    where I can remember what we did. Or at least remember what REALLY happened. I'll take a shot of whiskey, maybe a hit of some weed but nothing to get me high or drunk or anything like that. I don't NEED drugs or alcohol o have fun. It's just a little easier.

    The experience explains my life story.

    I have been outcasted because I don't want to party or get high. I have never seen the point of it all. Why go out and drink when I could go on walks in the middle of the night or why get high when I could go play tennis. It doesn't make sense to me. I understand that alcohol...

    But they do help incredibly!

    I feel like I'm one of the few people,

    that doesn't drink or do drugs. Where I come from. It seems like all teens and young adults want to do is get drunk and party all the time. :( I'm proud to say that I'm not, and I am like "do you need alcohol to have fun? Then you are not really having fun it's fake."

    First of all, I won't judge you in the least

    for drinking smoking, drugs, whatever. I have simply decided that I don't need them in my life in order to enjoy it, and this is coming from a high-anxiety, bipolar guy who probably has every reason in the world to self-medicate.
