    I hate how normalized weed has become.

    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.

    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...

    I've never tried anything illegal except weed.

    It was so embarrassing not being able to control myself and knowing that other people knew I was high. I felt like a real loser.

    Drugs and alcohol don't fix problems.

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

    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.

    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'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)

    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...

    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.

    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.

    But I do love my cheeb.

    Worst part about being a pseudo-responsible "adult" is that I can no longer be a stoner. My prayers at night go something like this... "Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my weed to legalize" One day he'll listen. Thanks, God. ✌️
