Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8 People

    Without Drugs...

    I've never done drugs and plan to keep it that way, and I drink very rarely. I have other ways to have fun and better things to spend money on.

    I don't care if you do drugs. It's just never appealed to me. I have no desire at all. Don't try and pressure me either. I've dropped friends because of this.
