I Don't Need Drugs and Alcohol to Have Fun

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 47,503 People

    I do not need alcohol,

    cigarettes, or illegal and legal drugs in my life or my kid's lives either. All three will kill you and will make your life a living hell before you die. If you think I am kidding, go to a local hospital or VA and look at the folks there with tanks attached to their bodies...

    I don't drink anymore.

    I'm allergic to alcohol and narcotics. I break out in handcuffs.

    For me fun is to chill with your friends,

    sing dance anywhere with them, to eat like a monster and to go on adventureous trips.

    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 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.

    I drink on occasion but I've never touched

    drugs. I've gotten drunk maybe once, and not even really. I have way much more fun when I'm sober :)

    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...

    I feel like you're just numbing your senses

    when you could be using those senses to have real fun.

    Have a couple years of sobriety under my belt.

    Is life better? Without a doubt. My family likes me now. My coworkers can stand me now. I don't wake up anymore wondering where my car is or how much money I have left to my name. Is life happy, joyous and free? F--k to the no. Prob should start seeing my therapist again...

    I tried alcohol and drugs

    and they did nothing for me. I mostly just enjoy people going crazy and do stupid things. If they go too far it's never fun, but it's their problem not mine.

    But I do need them to distract me

    and get rid of all of my thoughts. They cloud my mind and comfort me and lift my mood. Sometimes I really hate being 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...

    I've never even been tipsy.

    Why not? I've seen the downside of alcohol (ab)use up close, and it's the main reason why I decided to stay away from it. It's an evil thing, IMHO.

    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.

    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.

    Honestly, for me, beer taste bad.

    Like, seriously I can't even finish a 24oz. I see my friends drink it as if it were water. I don't know why people drink it excessively or are addicted to it. But whatever, it's a matter of taste I suppose. As for drugs, well that's another story.

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