    The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she

    wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart - the place where love resides."Or what do u think?

    Ugh

    High school is a constant test of temptation. It's just a matter of time before you give in to what everyone else does. Why do we go smoke weed and get drunk off our ***** every single weekend? Is that really our idea of fun? Or is it just what's expected of us? It's as if it's...

    I really hate clubbing,

    and talking to people who won't even remember your name. I hate it how most people feel that they have to be drunk to make new friends

    I've seen what it does to people; plenty of

    people that I care about. Some family. Some (old) friends. And I'd rather not have that be apart of my life. I'm not saying this in a way of "judging" them. I don't judge them or anyone for doing it. I mean, I can't, really. Because I have/had my "something" too. Everybody has...

    Drugs and alcohol don't fix problems.

    They are only a temporary solution. I choose to be sober over the latter.

    But some booze sure helps.

    I remembered and found that "Our life is better when we're waaaasted" song by Tiesto- played it on repeat for a bit. It made me crave some liquid buzz. It'd be the perfect song.

    You cannot understand how ******* stupid you

    Maybe it's just the holidays,

    but a lot of us seem to be sad or depressed lately. So let's lighten the mood with a trivial topic (or maybe not so trivial if you chafe easily....) For the ladies, yes or no to a beard and mustache on your man? What do you like and dislike about facial hair on your man?

    I'm 25 and have never used drugs

    or tried alcohol. I just hate that some people look at me weird because of this. Its always the same statement "omg you have never tried alcohol, why?" "How can you have fun sober?"

    Out here in the country,

    there's plenty of parties to be had. But at these parties there's so much drugs and alcohol. I've been to one or two and its really awkward being one of the few that dot drink or smoke. But its hilarious being one of the few that remember the events. Does anyone else enjoy...

    peace. it is only the path of loneliness,poverty and death. so I choose the path of mental peace.

    I do not need any illegal

    or legal drugs or alcohol to have fun. I am the life of the party as a nudist and exhibitionist. I am all natural and do not need all the other crap to get high on.

    It's so hard to find people

    who don't just want to talk about weed and how hammered they got last night. I know it sounds cliche, but that's what this generation is obsessed with. And I'm just not into it.

    I think that drugs and alcohol are disgusting.

    Although, I don't judge people by their habits of drugs or alcohol. It doesn't tell their personality. I just don't want to pollute my body. Straight edge.

    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.

    I'm not going to freak out

    if someone around me starts drinking or smoking, but I won't participate. As long as no one's pressuring me to do it, I can pretty much leave people to their own devices. (with the exception of like, heroin and other hardcore drugs. those I might get upset about)
