it ultimatly is completely up to YOU to stop, there is no "trick" to stopping anything, you just have to stop drinking it, and then after that, you will have stopped, but its a tough mental deal to deal with... I would look for things to do every friday that doesnt allow you to have alchohol, then your time will be occupied by something fun, and you wont need alcohol to enjoy yourself.

Used to do them, but not anymore.
They didn't really effect my life, I just knew that there were bad for my health.

So if you care to find me, look to the western sky.

I've never done drugs, and I really never want to try drugs just in case I do get addicted.

I've never done drugs. I'm kinda guessing I'll experiment with them in college though.

Em, why? How do you know you will do it? If I were you I wouldn't.

Oh and I never touched a drug before, never will.

Yes, I use to smoke alot of Marijuana/ Cigarettes Daily. I was smoking about 1/2-2 ounces of Marijuana per week for about 6 months. And no I didn't buy it all I'm not that rich. I just had friends who constantly smoked. Back when I was addicted to Marijuana (if you like something so much it does get addicting) I loved it. when I wasn't high I needed to get high and I use to even Steal money from my family to get it ... I regret it all now but It's just messed up. the Times I had where fun I do admit but in the long run it's not worth getting addicted to. Once I get off probation I will probably smoke on occasions but thats all.

I don't know if I will ever do them. I've never done them, and hope I don't, but if I do, I just hope I don't get addicted.

I'd answer the poll, but to be honest it's a bit crappy. Where's the option for "I drink/smoke ciggies or weed/do other stuff on a limited basis when I'm partying every once in a while, and continue to do so because I'm a) not addicted and b) at that level of use there are no major health risks, at least not without long-term chronic use"? All the options in this poll make whoever answers sound like some kind of hardcore addict-in-denial. No thanks.

I believe that would fit under:

"I could stop tommorow if i wanted to, and i quite enjoy doing it despire the health warnings"

No matter what you do or how often there are health warnings. You sound very defensive.

I think you're just in denial that any kind of drug use has health risks.

Anyone who has a negative or anti-drug stance on this forum is automatically labeled ignorant and propaganda filled. If you truly feel ok with what you're doing you wouldn't feel the need to jump on someone with a conflicting view as if you're desperately trying to crush it because you're so threatened by a negative aspect of what you're doing.

Sometimes its impossible to reason with drug users. I see nothing wrong if they at least acknowledge the health risks and warnings, but to pretend they don't exist or downplay them is irresponsible not only to yourself but people who read this forum.

I think that should be something drug abusers and anti-drug folk could agree on - that there's an acknowledgment of health risks, but some drug users would rather plug their ears and say their habits are at the right level to be safe because no one likes to think what they're doing could be wrong or harmful.

The majority are, because the majority ARE ignorant and propaganda filled.

Oh believe me, I know exactly what the drugs i take do and the health risks they carry, I am not denying they exist at all. I am just saying that they don't worry me enough to stop me..

I'm not jumping on him because he disagrees with me. In fact, I'm not jumping on him at all. I'm just pointing out that the questions are insanely biased, and any one you answer sounds like some kind of addict-in-denial, as I said. The fact is, I'm well aware of all the drug risks and stuff, but this poll makes every answer sound dumb, and I was just pointing that out.

Agrees. There should be an option for us moderate drug users.

I do drugs, but I'm very moderate and well-informed. So yea, i win.
Taken moderately drugs don't have many bad effects to you. Not more than other things like fast food, etc.

I smoke Marijuana, and don't intend to stop anytime soon. I have Bipolar Disorder, and it really does help with the rages, and mania alot. No side-effects like many of my meds though. Plus, the meds just make me depressed allot, and they alwase make me really fat. But if I thought the Marijuana was a health risk at the moment, I would stop right away. As it is, I only smoke once in a while-I am not saying to start smokeing pot if you have bi-polar. I'm just saying it helps me.
