    Hope I Am A Good Exp

    Hi, I'm from southern cali around the san bernardino area. The main reason I don't smoke, drink, or do drugs because I want to be a good example to my daughter. I want my daughter to be able to look at me and say " I don't want to drink cause my dad doesn't drink or smoke...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I don't smoke... never

    even tried, I don't understand it and mostly hate it. I do drink, but never much.. I like the taste, not anything beyond that. I don't really do drugs.. I did try a few, but uh... I apparently get less than half the expected minimal effect over less than half the duration...

    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...

    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...

    But I Respect Others Choices

    I don't smoke cause it seems gross to me I don't drink because I like to keep a level head at all times I don't do drugs for the same reason. I'm not religious but I don't bash it simply because I haven't died yet so I have no clue what comes after we die and I'm not going to...

    I don't do any if that.

    I have a had a drunk once or twice but never been drunk. However I am not religious but do find guidance through Norse teachings and the nine noble virtues

    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...

    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...
