I'm confused... - August 31st 2009, 04:53 AM

A few times in the past 6months or so, I've been offered drugs, and I mean like cocaine and etc...

I mean I used to smoke for like 5months which I really regret and I hate that part of my life, and I used to drink almost every friday + saturday, which I don't anymore and I'm glad.

But I was having a conversation with my of my friends the other day and she said that it's great and worth doing a few times, and I was saying things back along the lines of, there's no point to it and it wrecks your life. She said i was a bit too uptight and i should atleast give it a try.

I'm straightedge and I really don't want to take drugs, but am i missing out on alot?
A lot of people make them out to be amazing, are they really?

Hey There!

If you want my honest opinion, it really is not worth it. I was on the stuff for almost 5 years, and I can tell you that, the high is pretty good, but the side effects are horrid. The down you get after is killer, and trying to kick the stuff is no cakewalk either.

Trust me, and save yourself the grief. It's not worth it, at all.

On a side note, that's awesome that you stopped drinking, and don't do any of that stuff anymore, really. I know how hard it is to break that, and I just wanted to congratulate you. Good job, keep it up!

If you have any more questions feel free to PM me (:
Take care.

You're not 'missing out' on anything.
Obviously taking drugs gives you a certain feeling that you can't really experience elsewhere but a vast majority of people go through life without experiencing it. Nothing says you need to either.
Don't feel pressured into taking anything you don't want. Sure it may be an experience and something to tell your mates but otherwise it leads you to places that damage so much. It's not worth the little highs it gives you.
Be proud that you are revolting against the peer pressure. You won't regret it.
