There's so many things you can do "party wise" and other then drink and act stupid. or smoke pot, personally I fail to see how that's considered "fun" at all.There's lots of stuff you can do why does everyone assume if you want to have fun, you have to be messed up on something =/
Why do you have to be messed up?Going out and socializing with a few drinks is typical in our society, and most people enjoy it. It loosens you up, gives you a confidence boost and relaxes you. All of which is good after a hard weeks work, or if you're out looking to meet someone.Going out and drinking till you fall over is not typical (for some it is) in our society, and then it's a personal choice. Same goes with drugs.
seems like people I run into these days seem to find it fun to mess themselves up. I've yet to run into someone nowadays who just drinks on occasion to relax them self, they to it specifically to get messed up because apparently it's SO MUCH FUN!Personally I think people should learn to loosen up and relax without pot and alcohol, sure theirs days I'm sure when it's needed or good to drink or something and relax you.But my gf is an example. EVERY little thing that pisses her off or stresses her, she decides she needs to smoke pot for. and most of her friends and half of mine are just like that.And it's annoying on so many levels. Half the stuff that's intensely stressing or pissing them off is silly shit like they're mad because they got into a fight because they didn't clean their room up when told or something. SO NOW THEY'RE JUST SO STRESSED AND PISSED AND HAVE TO DO SOMETHING TO RELAX. If you want to use Alcohol/Pot as a medicine to occasionally calm your nerves when you're on edge or really need it ok, but it's like taking pain pills every time you accidentally bump into something.Stub your toe oh noes I hurt myself time for a pill bumps into table Z0MG PILLS WHERE ARE YOU!People are acting like you have to be drinking or smoking or taking something to have fun or to relax or to do ANYTHING, like we're a product that runs on batteries and the only way to recharge is with a drink.
You've got a smart head on your shoulders TheFallenLight, maybe its best to hang around with people who are as mature as you?
I think people like the ones you've been describing aren't doing you any favours and in the long run may pull you down. Obviously I don't know them but from what i hear they do sound pretty crummy. Hope its helped.
