Question: What are your views on drugs and alcohol?
Let me take this opportunity to publicly state that I do not, have not and (in the foreseeable future) will not do any type of illegal drugs. I am known for occasionally drinking, however.
Getting drunk at parties and rolling blunts are widely considered to be 21st century recreational activities amongst teens, young adults and even some pre-teens if I dare say so myself. I mean, what else are we supposed to do for fun?
At school I’ve learnt a lot about drugs and alcohol that encourage me to not partake of them. In general though society has shown me a lot that encourages me to stay away from drugs especially. Alcohol isn’t that bad as long as you can control it, and I’d like to think that I know the signs to look for to avoid becoming embarrassingly drunk.
I like drinking to be quite honest. Not in a ‘it helps me feel better about myself’ kind of way or a ‘all my friends do it when we party so why not?’ kind of way but in a ‘it tastes really good‘ way.
I don’t know what young people see in the ‘glamourosity’ that is smoking. Perhaps it’s that smoking is a relaxing thing to do? It makes them feel all warm and fuzzy inside? Or that high they get maybe. All I know is that shortening my lifespan isn’t a very attractive thing for someone as fearful of death as I am.
So, don’t do drugs! Crack is whack and all that jazz >.<
