    Neither were really that fun

    for me anymore by the time I got sober. It's only fun when you're not obliged to do it. As soon as it becomes a necessity, it becomes a nightmare.

    doing drugs and alcohol is not the answer to

    having fun..... having fun depends on you. drugs is not the way to go.... if you want to have fun do something that would be enjoyable NOT like drinking or smoking.. like watching a funny movie or play a game.

    and probably everyone will be drinking and getting drunk. And I can't drink because of health issue plus I don't like the taste of it. So I will be having fun anyways without it. :)

    When I was in 3rd grade our teacher made us

    promise not to take drugs and I'd fulfill my promise as long as I'm alive. Also, I've never like the smell of alcohol, so I won't bother drinking it. It won't do anything good for my health and physical state, so I might as well pass everytime.

    Any outside "help " is just going to make things get out of control. One time I smoked some hydro and my pet rabbit started talking to me. I kid you not. Never touched it/smoked again. Now, 15 years on and the rabbit lives inside my head. Want to hang with me sometime? O_O...

    There are so many other things to entertain us.

    But drugs and alcohols definitely make your life more interesting. I personally avoid doing drugs, but I always get alcohols. As long as I'm not completely druck and start fuc*ing with other guys, I think a decent amount of alcohol makes your life and party more fun.

    The most I have ever had was a glass of red

    wine. Where friends have gone out and gotten drunk, or stoned, I don't feel the need for these. Reality is what it is! Alcohol will not help me relax comfortably, I can talk about things reflectively if I need to in a social situation.
