I've never drank or smoked anything and people always ask me if I'm straight edge.  I'm not, I just don't really want to get into drinking or smoking.  I turn 21 in a couple weeks and I'm going to drink a little then, but not to get drunk.  Addictions run really strong in my family, and I know I have an addictive personality.  So it scares the shit out of me that I'll become an alcoholic or dependent on weed which is why I've never done either.

 

This. I had a friend who managed a restaurant I went to for my 21st birthday give me a sake bomb. Meh. Smoking and drinking doesn't do it for me either, especially when I was the one cleaning up my friend's house parties back in the day. I didn't want to be the shitfaced person that everyone didn't like at the end of the night either.

alcoholism runs in my family and for some reason i never turned into one. i didn't even turn into a belligerent drunk like my dad/bros/uncles/etc. i drank a lot till the hangovers got to be too much and then i just slowed down. no biggie. now i just drink when i specifically go out to the bars. Which is like 3 times a month. i rarely drink at shows unless i don't have to work. vacation is a totally different story. now if i'm drunk it's totally by accident and only happens maybe once every so many years and it's usually due to heavy drinking (aka 10/15 hour benders)

 

i wish people would drunk dial me. i miss that shit. i had a ton of fun fucking with people.

Same here. I'm honestly not that eager to try alcohol of any sort, and my friends who smoke weed always either do stupid stuff or just sit around and do nothing, so weed isn't all that attractive to me either (that, and it smells like rubber cement. I don't care what anyone says, weed smells like rubber cement to me).

 

I do smoke hookah once or twice a month, though, because I enjoy the social aspect of it and I like learning smoke tricks. That's about it.
