    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?

    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.

    A lot of my friends use drugs

    and alcohol. I just don't feel comfortable around those things. They try to defend it and say that it helps them cherish moments and makes you enjoy life more, but I don't see any possible good coming from me doing drugs.

    WHy? Just why do people need them?

    There are hundrets of ways to have fun and to enjoy things without blasting your head out with all kinds of bad stuff. It is so sad that for some people the main reason at a party is to get drunk or high or what ever

    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?"

    I never understood the pressure to drink

    or do drugs. I don't look down on people who do; but they need to realize that I don't do those things.

    in my opinion drugs and booze

    for fun does make you dumb, it narrows your view of the world and what it can be.

    It seems like so many of the kids at school

    think that you have to drink and do drugs in order to have fun. But I know for a fact that this isn't true. You can have plenty of fun without smoking, drinking, or doing drugs. I think that some kids get roped into the wrong crowds because they want to be accepted so badly. But...

    I know I don't need them,

    but you know what I like them. I like the feeling of the buzz that alcohol gives me when I down my triple vodka and coke. I like the feeling of my body relaxing after me & a few buddies pass a joint between us. But I'm in control - it's a choice, not a necessity.

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

    look saying that weed is an acceptable drug. I have seen peoples lives destroyed by a marihuana addiction. I've seen the kindest people turn into zombies. Weed helps to uncover any mental illness you may have, wether it be depression, anxiety, bipolar.. Anything! It's not worth...

    One thing that's always been true about me is

    that I am more of a child at heart. I really just like good wholesome old fashioned fun. A couple years ago I didn't event like to drink for several reasons but one being I just didn't really think it was fun. Now since I have gotten older, I actually do think it's fun to go out...

    I had a thought. Why do people drink alcohol?

    Especially in uni where the definition of hangout is getting drunk at some random party and waking up with a hangover. I think people drink alcohol just to make friends. Aren't you confident in your own personality to be able to enjoy yourself without the influence of alcohol...

    why I don't want to drink and always pressure me and question me.I used to, but would end up feeling dizzy and violently ill the next day. My stomach is a lot more sensitive than most people and I can't handle alcohol. Just being surrounded by my friends in a fun environment is...

    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.

    alcohol to me is for enjoyment purposes,

    not to just get wasted and forget the day. I understand and respect others who are different from me but I just steer away from them.

    I used to smoke marijuana.

    Had visions on it. Went psychotic and paranoid because of it. I quit. I used to drink. After awhile, I stopped. Just didn't find the joy in it. Watch a bunch of drunks at a party. They are ugly and they think they are beautiful. I live with bipolar disorder. I cannot...

    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...
