    I don't get why people become dependent on them. They really don't have any benefits. In the end..they're really just ruining your life. There's things to help you through the hard and difficult times, even when you feel like there's no hope for you.

    Only Prescribed?

    Drugs..

    I'm pretty scared to try it. I've seen too many people become zombies. Foaming at the mouth doesn't look cool to me.

    In Fact

    I am so against getting dependent on ANYTHING that i made it a point not to adopt tea drinking even though everybody is a tea-addict where i live. No tea or coffee or anything like that for me.

    It's Just Not For Me, But I Don't Hate.

    I've never been interested in using drugs. Call it goofy, but I was a DARE kid growing up, and the program always had a big impact on my perspective. Once a week, for a few weeks, we would get a visit from Officer K, and it just seemed like he was larger than life to me. He wasn...

    I Never Have

    Maybe I was just to lazy, or was it that I knew if I did and got caught that my Dad would have kicked my A** for days, and I'm not big on pain.  Now I'm very thankful that I have never did drugs.   Thanks Dad.

    The greatest of all ironies. I decided, as a teen (yep, in the seventies and all), that I would not try drugs, not because I was particularly virtuous, but because it seemed like a bad idea. I've lost count of the times that, on hearing this, I've been told that I'm boring...

    I have never taken any drugs that American society believes is either bad in general or bad for your health. Back when I was young, about 10 years ago, it meant most things, like tobacco, alcohol, and the "bad drugs". Alcohol isn't even a drug... why is it on this list...

    Self Respect......

    In my opinion, many people do drugs to escape what they're going through. Or see how it affects them. Or used it because of peer pressure. Or used it because a family member does it. No one reason is good enough to explain why you do drugs. I'm talking about hard-core drugs: meth...
