    Maybe?

    Well, does marijuana count? It really should be legalized. Yeah, I smoked pot years ago (but only 3 times-the third time scared the hell out of me-and I never smoked again),but I've never done anything except cigarettes ( I smoked for a very short time) and booze. I am a good...

    Surprise

    Any time I tell someone that I've never used drugs they are always shocked, I'm not sure if that good/bad/or insignificant, it's less of shock to people now-a-days, but especially when I was younger, HS and college, people were always suprised and alot of ppl didn't believe me at...

    Never Interested Me

    The idea of trying drugs has honestly never interested me.  Based on how I feel when I've used something as simple as two Tylenol PMs or something as strong as Percocet for pain (I HATE that hungover, blah feeling), I don't think that I'd like drugs.  Besides, I've...

    Illegal Drugs

    I've done some pretty stupid things, but I am so glad I never messed with illegal drugs.  I don't even like taking medicine most of the time.

    I've never done this,

    I kinda want to. Nothing to do with smoking, that's nasty. Maybe heroine or crack... I've always wanted to experience that supernatural high that takes you to nowhere and everywhere all at once.

    Alcohol and Cigs Are Enough

    I'm very scared of having health problems because of something that I messed up myself. So I'm happy that I never used illegal drugs when I could been grouppressured into it and am now strong enough to resist such pressure. I think the alcohol I drink and the cigarette I've...

    Nope.

    I've been tempted to at times, but all those years of drug horror stories and grade school health class lectures did not go unheard!

    Nope! Not Once!

    Yes... it may be surprising to some, but I never tried pot... or crack... or heroin... or any of that stuff. And I never will. The most narcotics that I've tried and still use are caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol. Though, I haven't had a drink in over a year now. Not sure why...

    Health Teacher

    I think my middle school health teacher scared everyone, including me, about the effects of usuing those drugs. We all thought that he would like hunt and kill us if we every used. Plus, I've read many books about how kids reacted to them and I don't think I'd ever want that...

    Had the Chance, But No Interest

      I never had an interest in using drugs.  Not a single puff for me - in fact, I have never even tried cigarettes.  When I was in college, most of my friends did drugs.  I was in the room with them when they smoked pot, and even a few times when some of them...

    I Am Proud.

    There are very few things in this world that make me proud.  This is one of them.  I am just like the people who do drugs. I am sad. I am lonely. I like having a good time. I want to run away from reality.  But at the same time, I don...

    I have no interest in it at all, or being around it.

    Doing the Right Thing

    I grew up during the 60's and drug use started to be glorified.  My folks always wanted us to the right thing. Abusing drugs wasn't doing the right thing. Raised my children the same way. It isn't always easy to do the right thing, but you will feel better for it.  Now...

    Misunderstandings

    I simply have had no interest in it. I also don't drink, just not my thing. I know people who do illegal drugs and I really don't see anything wrong with it in most cases. To me the illegality of them is simply a matter of laws trying to enforce morality. Without a doubt...

    I Wish I Could Join This Group.

    I used to be able to say this, for sooo long.  Then I had one bad night.  My cousins are huge potheads, and they'd been begging me to smoke since I was 12.  When I was 18, I finally did it.  I didn't like it, and haven't done it since.  I really don...

    Never Appealed to Me

    I think I'm rather rare, but I was never interested. Looking around at the damage they do, it seems my lack of interest paid off.

    Never Have And Never Will

    I never have and never will use illegal drugs. I have a lot of problems in my life, all which are, or at least seem to be, completely out of my control. I always stay away from anything and everything that has the possibility of making my life worse. Drugs would definitely do...

    Never

    I'm not planning to either. One of my cousins in in gaol for this, I don't want to go down that path, never. I have another cousin who's an ambulance driver, he's been kind enough to tell me what he's seen.

    They are all the same. Well, most of them. Not that there aren't some that can be of help, still most only try to harm people.
