    It's almost impossible to live without some form of addiction or vice,
    (as that's the human condition and is trenscended by only the zen masters)

    Find something less destructive (like art?) to fill your time.

    Learn that vice is like spice...
    Pepper doesn't make the steak.
    Got that?

    grasper your sXe? i didnt think there were any LI sXe writers...haha

    as far as the seething ball of hate goes, that works well. or laugh at all your friends when they get drunk and make them give you money, this has worked on several occasions and enabled me to make it home with a little more gas than i should have.

    or have them pick fights with people you know can kick their ass, this makes for hours of fun, just go up to your friend and be like "yo, that guy over theres talking shit about you...blah blah blah" and convince them that they can kick said persons ass.

    im such a good friend.

    I dont seperate myself, but I stay around them, to see what Im not missing. the whole concept of it seems pretty stupid. and dont go 'straightedge'. the way i did it was find a real reason not to do it, and hold on to that reason.

    THE KING OF HELL thinks straight edge is a good thing for kids having a hard time trying to stay away from bad influences and saying no. it gives people a little bit of help develpoing a spine. just dont go all out at first. listen and learn things about what sxe realy means. it is not about being a dick to everyone who drinks or smokes.

    it IS about keeping your head clear and not giving into pressures that you dont agree with just on the basis of weak acceptance. be a monkey wrench in the gears. stick. retain longevity and THEN you will have great stories for your grandkids when everyone else is telling them either lies or drunk guy stories.

    tow up from tha flow up ! - Replied Oct 19, 2001

    I was straight edge for 4 years... but I mean I also wore that shirt that said "if you aren't now, you never were" so.. I guess I never was straight edge for 4 years. But anyway, I never regret that time in my life. I learned so much, got so much accomplished, and I remained really happy and even now that I'm not straight edge.. I'd still rather go to parties and clubs and be sober 90% of the time. I think the thing about being straight edge is that it's easy to get sucked into the "scene" where all you do is go to shows, talk shit, and get into fights or watch your friends get into fights. I surrounded myself with mostly straight edge people and had mostly straight edge mentality and then when I grew out of that phase, where the shows and people no longer interested me, I felt like I wanted to sell out in order to "learn and discover new things, and meet different kinds of people". The fact is, you can be straight edge or drug free, and not have to limit yourself to any one scene... just dont' let other straight edge kids tell you that emo's not cool, and huffin paint fumes isn't being drug free. hehe, jk. but seriously, do your own things, and let straigth edge mean drug free and only drug free.. not hardcore, tattoo's, and labret piercings. you know?
