    I Can't Handle It!

    I think there must be something wrong with me, when I take a sip of alcohol it makes me sad and tearful. On rare occasions that I tried alcohol, I almost killed myself! and cried whole night! and I only had a sip! Something like Doc in "Back To The Future 3" About...

    Body Friendly

    I consider myself a body friendly person, meaning, I avoid anything that can be harmful to my body. I've never smoked, once when I was a teen about to try it because of peer pressure, but I couldn't go down with it because the smell made me cough so bad I just couldn't smoke. I...

    But I Respect Others Choices

    Odd Girl Out

    My husband keeps reminding me that we are the super minority. I don't mind. At work I am sometimes shunned because I am different from them but I noticed that a lot of the people my age who still drink and smoke are having health problems. I submitted the previous story on...

    That Was Then, This Is Now.

    I've learned from my mistakes, and seen where it has taken my friends and even family. I don't want to be one to rely on a drink at the end of each day, or be digging for pennies when I can't afford a pack of smokes. Addictive substances aren't something to play with, because all...

    It's Indirect

    I have a phobia of losing my mind. More than anything, I'm afraid of losing control. I can't possibly consider the aspect of getting drunk or high, for a moment not being sure of what I'm doing. I mean, perfectly sober, I can hardly make a decision. Who the hell knows what I'm...

    Never Alone But Still Feel Lonely

    I don't Smoke because I'm an Athlete I don't Drink to protect the ones I dislike. I don't do Drugs because I've seen the damages to families around me. I'm not Religious because I don't believe in the need for a higher power to do good onto others. To me it's simple and I make...

    I Think It's Self-explanatory.

    I don't find many people who don't do these things who are not religious, not to bash on religion at all, it's simply to see if I am the only one. Whatever your reasons, I don't have a need to do any of the above.

    Yeah

    I don't need a religion to tell me not to do these things. I don't smoke because I don't want to voluntarily give myself lung/esophageal cancer. I have enough problems as it is. I could do without cancer. I don't drink because, roughly, 98% of the relatives on my...

    Clean, Sober and Proud

    I wasted 15 years of my life over alcohol and cigarrettes. Alot of my past seems to be a blur. I had faint memories of me and my husband looking for cigarette butts and I remember being so hung over that I would be shaking the next day. I found a point to where I couldn't take it...
