drugs - December 6th 2009, 04:17 PM

okay, so everyones heard of the stereotypical scenareo of a bunch of teenagers peer pressuring someone to try drugs and shit. but what about the opposite?

i used to do a lot of drugs (some of which were really bad), but now im just smoking pot when im aroudn my friends and i feel like it. if i dont feel like doing anything I WILL NOT DO IT.

a bunch of my really straight edge friends are trying to pressure me into going completely straight edge. i think its ridiculus on their part, i mean cant i smoke pot every once in a while wihtout having a bunch of biddies giving me shit for it? i mean i know pot isnt exactly good for me, but it makes me feel good. so cant i chose for myself whats good for me and whats not without having people judging me or telling me im stupid or anything?

it doesnt matter what u do with ur life ppl who have chosen a different path will always try and tell u ur wrong. if pot helps u feel good and ur responsible about its use then y not use it, tell ur friends to back off its ur body and it aint hurting them.

well at the end of the day it's your choice what you decide to do. although i wouldn't encourage smoking pot, there are certainly a lot worse things you could be doing. tell your friends to butt out and mind their own business. but so as not to antagonise them, just don't do it in front of them?.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

Agreed, this is your decision. No one else can make that choice for you.
It is YOUR body not theirs.

Like everyone else said at the end of the day it is your body. Its your body if you catch throat cancer it your body if you catch lung cancer its your body if anything happens to it and you only have ONE body. So do whatever you want to it and make no mistake of blaming anyBODY if something happens to YOURBODY

Listen buddy, it's your choice and all but they're just laying down the facts for you and trying to guide you down a proper path, and with that, they're being true friends and looking out for you. Which would you rather have, a bunch of friends pressuring you to take another hit, another toke, pack another bowl... Or the friends who are pressuring you into doing your homework, not being late for class, not wasting away your brain cells and life, and keeping you out of trouble?

Just remember that, a lot of the 'party people' you might associate with, won't have your back when you need it... Those friends telling you to go legit, they'll have your back day and night. Something I realized the hard way, in the process nearly lost my life.

I dont encourage you to smoke pot. I think its wrong and your friends are only trying to protect you.
True yes it is your body, but you have to be wise in the decisions you make regarding your body
