How do you feel about drinking/smoking/drugs?

I don't indulge in any of those activities, never have, never will and its not due to religious or moral reasons. Its just something that I don't enjoy is and none of it is good for health either, so I choose to live without it. Unfortunately it is rare for me to come accross anyone close to my age today who does not enjoy these things on a regular basis. I do think this is one of the reasons for which was a loner in college, most socializing scenes involve abuse of all of the above and its just not a setting I would ever have fun in.

I completely feel the same way. It's like some kind of rite of passage for people once they finish high school. I honestly don't understand it, but I just don't hang out with people who trash themselves, and I wouldn't want to. Teenagers-to-early adults just seem to think they're invincible.

But we ARE invincible.
Ah, I kid I kid. But it's nice to think so.

I think each person is allowed their own independent, uninfluenced decision.
If somebody decides to start drinking or smoking, I'm cool with it. I have nothing to do with how another human being treats his or her own body. The only things I'm morally against are peer pressure and drugs.
It's also a sad truth that people may have been influenced from childhood to start drinking/smoking/taking drugs, maybe even by their parents..so I'm not going to pass judgement on the whole lot of alcoholics/smokers/druggies and deem them evil. I'm sure you know that life isn't always sunshine and rainbows, and it's known that high levels of stress on a human being lowers their ability to make good decisions. We make mistakes, and that's all that's needed to start an addiction.
There's always a reason.

I don't deem people who drink/do drugs evil, I just can't relate to doing that for fun. I do understand I'm the odd one out here so I don't hold people's habits against them, they can do what they like, its their life. I have hung out with people who smoke cigs but never with people who are on hardcore stuff or get wasted all the time.

Katrina,

im indulged in smoking and i may say, once u start..it is very very hard to stop unless u have an extremely strong determination to stop..i've tried many times to stop..but meaningless to say, it is just like a cycle...smokin-->guilt-->stop-->smoke again..

Not like u, for me its is more likely because both of religious and moral reasons.. a BIG guilt whenever i bought a new pack and a small guilt when i light-up another cig..

I agree with NixValue, we make mistakes, and thats all needed to start an addiction..
so if someone starts smoking, it is actually a 'decision' suppressed by reason/s ...let it be stress, peer pressure or whatever...

But, there are just a lot of ppl that i've met, respects someone who doesn't smoke/drink...they wont force u to do it if u chose not to...

I don't drink, i don't smoke, and i don't do drugs. I think it's completely idiotic to do things against our principle just in order to make friends or be accepted. We're loners, we're happy & confident with ourselves and we don't need to be accepted  /yup

I dont do any of those things, drinking is not good, but I can understand it better than smoking, and drugs. I would not want to associate myself with people who smoke or take drugs, as they would most likely influence me. They would also most likely hang out with the same type of people. Its not good, I know this as a former friend went down this road...

I've tried smoking, what a rewardless endeavour, it stinks and is a complete and utter waste of money.

I've tried Marijuana. Same as smoking.

Alcohol. I enjoy having a few drinks. Nothing beats getting home from work on a Friday, grabbing a few beers, turning on some music and just being in my own comapny.

Well I've tried smoking once to see what the fuss was about, hated it.
Tried cannabis to see what the fuss was about, didn't effect me at all. (The guy that shared the blunt with me went ape on the stuff ???)
I've drank alcohol, but never ever drank so much as to become locked out of my lucid state.

Drinking however, is fine here and there, once in a blue moon when the pain of being alone starts to dig in, I quickly take a few swigs of wine and just try brush it off.

I can't say what it feels like being so attached to a substance. Although after a bit of studying in my own time the effects of the chemicals and such, they seem like reasonable vices (Marijuana being the only exception for narcotics), however they're not really me. /yup

As far as choosing my poison goes, I prefer addiction to video games. I'm proud to say that none of the three have damaged my system.

True, I have to wear glasses, I'm slightly deaf in one ear. Not to mention how spotty I am.
