Before I start, lemme say that I'm no devout Christian, no extreme conservative, and I don't think that just because I don't drink/smoke/do drugs it makes me a good person.

I just don't see the point in doing them at all. I've tasted alchol in various forms, and it dosen't really appeal to me. I've never enjoyed the smell of a cigarete, nor am I friends with anyone who smokes/who would offer me a cigarette. And I don't do any form of drugs because I don't feel the urge to try any of them.

Does anyone else feel the same way I do here?

I do however, look down somewhat on the people that do smoke/drink/do drugs. Am I wrong for doing that? I espically deslike those who faulnt the fact that they do these things, say by posting pictures of themselves on their MySpace's. I feel that many people at my school are partying their high school years away, thinking that their fun will never end, and that what they do to themselves won't have any reprocousions. I've seen some kids at my high school who have fried their brains on drugs, and there's not a single thought going through their heads.

I do think that when you reach a certain age (say, around 16), that you have the majurity to make the decision of weather to smoke/drink/do drugs on your own, but I don't approve of underage drinking/doing drugs.

I guess what ereks me most is that when people drink underage, or do drugs, they're breaking the law. And who's to say that the people who do drugs/drink underage won't be more prone to breaking the law in the future?

Sorry about my raintings, but it's all just something that I wanted to express.

I hate to break it to you, but life is essentially pointless. Beyond your friends, family, girlfriend and/or job...what is there? You come home from work, kiss your wife/girlfriend, talk about your day, and sit in front of the boob tube until bedtime. Going out to a bar spices things up a bit and break the daily monotony.

By the way, some of the most intelligent people I know are stoners.

Breaking the law? Please.

There are many rules that are broken in spite because they are bogus. Only four countries in the world have a 21 and over law with alcohol, and yet we have so many problems with DWI's and excess. Food for thought.

Sorry about my raintings, but it's all just something that I wanted to express.

No problem. Just don't come off as a "holier-than-thou" jerkoff and you'll do fine.

That sums it up for me. If you don't want to drink or puff ( I hate hard drug users myself) then that is great, live your life how you want. It's the kinds of people who act higher (no pun) than everyone else because they don't do them is what is laughable to me. And to top it off, the ones who don't do them and think they know all about them (cough cough few people here) and then go on to preach to others is what really makes me laugh.

I will bet that sometime in your life you will drink a beer or a glass of wine and like it, maybe not who knows. As for underage drinking/puffing. That is something for the law and parents to deal with but if they are not hurting anyone else let them be.

I do however, look down somewhat on the people that do smoke/drink/do drugs

Yes, there is something very wrong with that but I will be a nice guy and say to you... you will/shouldgrow up and see the light. (disclaimer, again, soft drugs and alcohol is what I mean here)

Remember, moderation is the key in life.

I certainly dont mean to come accross in such a way. The "holier-than-thou" pisses me off too.

I hate to break it to you, but life is essentially pointless. Beyond your friends, family, girlfriend and/or job...what is there? You come home from work, kiss your wife/girlfriend, talk about your day, and sit in front of the boob tube until bedtime. Going out to a bar spices things up a bit and break the daily monotony.

But there's more to it than that. I'm talking about the people who realize that after high school graduation, that that's the end of the line for them. Their parents are going to kick them out after a few years, and they're gonna be flippin burgers (or the equivalent) for the rest of their life.

[QUOTE=BeefFlaps]Yes, there is something very wrong with that but I will be a nice guy and say to you... you will/shouldgrow up and see the light. (disclaimer, again, soft drugs and alcohol is what I mean here)

But don't you feel that you're doing anything wrong (atleast with the drugs) because you're breaking the law?

marvinmatthewI've tasted alchol in various forms, and it dosen't really appeal to me. I've never enjoyed the smell of a cigarete, nor am I friends with anyone who smokes/who would offer me a cigarette

Have you tasted it enough in a one time? Getting drunk is nice as then you are more relaxed, laugh more easier and are socially more active. Even though I take alcohol quite rarely, perhaps one time per two months on an average. Sure, some people start to pick a quarrel or fight, but I think the first phrase applies to most people who get drunk.

Cigarette gives a relaxed feeling too and releases some stress. Just like alcohol, it's a social tool. But what I see a little bit pathetic is the people who get drunk every weekend, both Friday & Saturday. Sure it's their own business, but don't these people have any other things to do?

I guess what ereks me most is that when people drink underage, or do drugs, they're breaking the law. And who's to say that the people who do drugs/drink underage won't be more prone to breaking the law in the future?

Underage drinking is a minor problem and possible consequences of it, nonexistent. It doesn't say that if you drink underage, you would be much more likely to break a law again because that's not the case. "Breaking the law" sounds like these people would be some minor criminals and if that's the case, then it's very ridiculous.

The issue is not the underage drinkers but a people who buy alcohol for youngsters and stores that sell it. Besides, there's more important things to do than monitoring if people drink underage or not.

Its not a problem, but for many people drinking is a great way to release themself and become more confident and such like. you can ave so much more fun when your drunk as even the most simplist things can make you and your friends laugh, this for me is great as you develop better friendships with your friends.

its all good....as long as you plan to have sex your fine.

When it comes to this topic I only know what’s best for me. As for light drugs, and alcohol, I totally approve of being able to choose. If I want to get buzzed up on a bottle of jack daniels, that’s a choice I have. If I want to smoke a big fat joint and get high, again that’s MY choice. Whether or not it is legal or not, is irrelevant to my conscious, as both only affect me. When it comes to legalities or being criminal? I think the only crime existent, is any government anywhere in the world, locking people up for smoking a naturally occurring plant. On a personal note, I don’t smoke marijuana or drink. Haven’t for almost a decade. I did once, but now, I choose not too. Do I regret my past choices? Not one iota. (Ps. To the guy who said he knew a lot of smart stoners, I completely agree. Many of the most intelligent people i've ever met, dabbled in marijuana.)

i can understand why you think people who drink or do drugs underage will be more likely to break the law in the future, im sure that is actually the case with some of them, but definitely not all. as long as you do it responsibly and dont become addicted i see no problem. drinking underage is totally fine with me, why? the drinking age in this country is rediculously high. i could go on and on about that but i wont for now. i know a few people who smoke pot sometimes. personally i think thats a pretty bad choice and i would never do it. but its fine with me if thats the choice they made. as long as they dont do it around me.
