    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 have a close relative

    who has dealt with drug addiction. He went to prison and was clean and doing well for 6 months. We were all so proud of him. Well.. He's using again. I'm so scared that he's going to die from this addiction. Please pray for him and my family.. Addiction is a family issue, we are...

    I've been to one party.

    And to be honest I didn't even enjoy myself. I enjoy myself when I'm in the car with my family, singing our hearts out to our favorite songs, or jumping on the trampoline with my little sister, or just listening to some good music. That's all I need

    No illegal drugs or alcohol has touched my lips

    and entered by body. I do not need these things to have fun in life. I just said no to these destructive measures of life. Nancy Reagan said it best over 30 years ago with "Just Say No". I have taken her advice and has passed it on to others.

    It doesn't make any sense to me

    why people need that stuff to have fun there are plenty of other things you can do with your life besides waste it on crap like that I've never done any of those things and I'm never going to and I'm proud to say that I'm doing better things with my life and not wasting it on...

    that do drugs. I know a few who have drank beer. One of my friends even came to school high. He didn't get caught. I have always wanted to try because they seem to have a hell of a time when they do drugs. But then I remember how much fun I have binge watching Netflix and eating...

    I've always been the one to make sure people

    People that think that they can only have fun

    if alcohol and drugs are involved must be really boring people. Imagine how insecure someone would have to be to think that the only way to socialize with other people is to get smashed. And somehow these people are considered "cool".

    I don't need drugs or alcohol to have fun.

    We had to take a class on D.A.R.E. This class tells us to never take drugs and be against violence. All that drugs and alcohol does it damage you body and you can still dance and have fun without it.

    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.

    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?

    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...

    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...
