I’m only 17, so I might not have a full grasp of life’s experiences. But why is it that it’s considered a valuable asset to enjoy consuming alcohol? My friends go to parties and get smashed, get no meaningful sleep because you black out when drunk, vomit like crazy the next day, and say they enjoy it? I’m of the mind that if it reduces your judgement, makes vomitting a normal habit, and is literally poisoning your body, why do it? It’s like smoking, you’re paying to reduce your lifespan.
Alot of the people that talk about drinking say pretty much the same things: “Yeah, I got so wasted last night, I was in the hospital getting my stomach pumped”, “I don’t remember anything from last night” Upon further questioning as to why someone would drink to the point of forgetting the entire night, which to me, seems to defeat the purpose, they said “Yeah, but I’m assuming I had a blast”.
Am I the only one out there that refuses to drink and partake in drugs of any kind, aside from ibuprofen and zantac? Am I the only one who hates how parties must require drinking? I wouldn’t mind going out with my friends, I’d love to, really. But lately it’s just involed either drinking or doing something stupid, like getting stoned and watching terminator or something.
Any other proud to be sober for life people out there?
