30 Days Thursday: Day Three

Your views on drugs and alcohol:
Well, I guess I should first say that yes I have smoked weed before and I've been to parties with alcohol and did my fair share of drinking. With that said, it was all when I was very young. I was in with the wrong crowd of kids and just kind of followed along with what they did. I never thought it was "the cool thing to do", I just kind of did it. I quickly realized how wrong it was and got away from those people and surrounded myself with better friends. 
After that, I've always thought that drinking beyond social drinking and/or being sober was ridiculous. I thought the stoner kids in school were some of the most ignorant people I've ever met and that it had to be a problem they had and showed how weak they really were. It was always something I thought was a way to deal with problems momentarily and didn't agree with it.
I still hold on to that belief. I still know a lot of people who have drug and alcohol problems as a lot of people where I live do and I have seen how it affects their life and I don't agree with it. It has messed my family up before, therefore I have good reasons for not agreeing with it.
For people who use marijuana for medical reasons or people who drink socially without making themselves black out...thats fine. It is all your preference and I will not judge. Its not my cup of tea, but to each his own (so many cliches! haha).

Other 30 Days Thursdays: Day One, Day Two


  1. I've always been a kind of "straight edge" kid. Never partied, never drank until 21 and never smoked etc. I agree, to each his own as long as it's not effecting others negatively, and most of the time it's hurting someone, so it's never worth it in the end. A drink with dinner or out with friends? Sure. I can't for the life of me figure out why people still smoke though. Seriously.
