I Don't Need Drugs and Alcohol to Have Fun

    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'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?"

    in my opinion drugs and booze

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

    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.

    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...

    People say that it is the best experience of your life to smoke a little. It's not. Everyone thinks you need to get drunk a little here and there. You don't. Getting high and getting drunk to have fun makes you look like you have no life at all. There is so much more then a puff...

    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.
