Lemme tackle the easy one, alcohol, first. I'm a fan. I love beer. I love a good martini. Sometimes I even love wine. I rarely ever drink to get drunk, and I just feel it's a nice way to cap off the day. Every once in awhile, I give it up temporarily for my own reasons.
You can't see it, but there's a button under my left armpit holding that dress together. I am classy.
Drugs. To each their own, I suppose. I wish the hard, chemical stuff had never been made, but what can I do about that? I've never smoked pot (or even cigarettes) and don't plan on it. But I'm not going to stop anyone else.
Funny story, my whole family believes that I DO smoke pot, simply because I'm a hippie. They never believe me when I say I've never done it.
One time when I was a teenager, my mom left a wine cooler or something in the barn, and everybody blamed me. But I didn't drink until I was 21 and even then I begged for a virgin screwdriver...
