Tell me one good reason why people think its cool. Why people think they have to be high to be cool? Really all they are doing is killing their future. It just makes me so mad that people think they have to be doing everything everyone els does. So if your so called friends want to try something and you try it to your basicaly be the most stupid person on earth. I'm not kiding. What makes it so cool killing your brain cells, or the memory loss the next day? Just think how your parents would react if they found out. Then theirs the Alcohol. Do you relise what that stuff dose to you. Teens there's a reason they put an age on drinking. That's all I ask why is it cool?

i think it has a lot to do with the media, its the same like in highschool the pretty girls are populare and the people in the band are consitered nerds. It doesnt seem right to me either teens put so much pressure on eachother to fit in its not cool.

If you have to drink to be cool or have fun. Then your pretty pathetic. If you were REALLY cool and fun, you wouldn't need it. Just saying.

I could not agree more with you. I think one of the main reasons people start to smoke is they think it looks cool. In your writing when you say "What makes it so cool killing your brain cells, or the momory loss the nexy day?" This is exactly what will happen if you chose to do drugs, or drink before your twenty-one. Everytime you take a puff, or take a drink you are slowly commiting suicide inside your body.
