Well Pit, I'm officially THAT guy. the one in high school that wimps out of doing things that involve drugs.

I was at my friends graduation party, and after it was over we decided to follow another friend of ours to go get high. I'm straightedge so I wasn't actually going to smoke, but I did want to hang out with my friends. I thought we would just be going to his house, which I didn't have a problem with, so I followed. It turns out we were going to some random park and going into this back trail to get high. Basically, once we got there and I was made aware of what was going on, I grew a vagina and hopped in my car and drove away, because I don't drink or do drugs. Now, as I'm at home with nothing to do, I'm asking myself this question Pit:

Why am I such a pussy when it comes to this type of thing?

why do I always have to run away and not just ball up and push through it? Why can't I grow up?


Also, if you're gonna be ridiculous, you're really not helping.

I fail to see the issue to avoiding something harmful.

I was about to get hit by a bus.
I moved.
Damn.

@Saint78: yeah, that's generally a risk you take.

I smoke quite often and enjoy it, but I think that if you don't want to smoke you shouldn't. It doesn't make you a pussy to say no, you would be more of a pussy if you did something you didn't want to do just because your friends are doing it. Don't smoke unless you want to.

You might just have a false perception in your mind of drugs being bad. Just because you don't personally choose to partake doesn't mean they are inherently 'bad'. If this ever happens again, I'd recommend just making it seem very casual in your head. You don't have to personally do them, but if you want to stick around with your friends you'll have to make some psychological adjustments.

#14
You're telling me that you're a loser because you didn't get stoned out of your head at a park.

Want to grow up? Make your own decisions in life. If you decide that something isn't for you then don't do it. Simple as that.

And how about showing women a little more respect by not equating every perceived negative quality you have as a feminine trait? eg. "I grew a vagina"

There's nothing wrong with NOT doing something illegal and "cool" or whatever, but sometimes, you just have to let loose. Nobody said you had to smoke pot constantly, just do it once with your bros and relax. You looked alot worse by walking away and selling everybody out on a night of fun.

Well by saying you're straight edge it implies you don't want to. So I figured you had something against it, not just the fact you hadn't done anything contrary to that yet.

Get over it. If you wanna hang out with these people who are doing these things harden up and handle the fact that you're gonna be exposed to it and be around it. You can be around it without doing it, and that's about all I can say because I can't get passed the "straightedge" bullshit.. THAT's why you can't grow up, because you base your life around some ******y tag.

i stated that even if i went with them i wasn't going to smoke. I'm straightedge because I have A LOT of moral principles against drugs. In my head I just can't seem to remember why I chose to abandon my friends

Well if you really do have a lot against it then you should feel proud that you can stand up to what you feel is wrong and have the presence of mind to remove yourself from the situation before you give into peer pressure.

What moral principles do you have against drugs, if you don't mind me asking?

I don't do many drugs. Not for any moral reason, I just don't feel the desire.

Maybe this means you should find people to hang around who don't do drugs. Especially when they know you're there and you don;t want to.

drugs have had a very bad impact on my family. i'm not going into details at the moment. Not because I don't want to, but because I don't feel I need to.

I have hung out with people when they smoked/drank when I didn't. It's no big deal, they didn't care. Except I don't think I would hang out with them out in public because if they get caught, you get caught too. I have more respect for people that don't do it because their friends are, they are the ones with the balls to say no to their friends.

It takes balls to say no to drugs when everyone else is doing it. What I don't get it why you drove away. You guys still could have hung out afterwards.

You got away from a situation that could get you in legal trouble. I see no problem here.

Consider it a logic thing. They might get busted, you might get busted. It's not a big deal, dude. I don't particularly like hanging out with my friends when they use, either. I don't even let people drink at my house unless they're twenty one.

not really. like yeah, a dick cop could arrest and charge each and every person there for a few joints, but it wouldnt ever hold up in court. you have to have it on your person while a cop searches you or the cop needs to see holding it/attempting to discard it. i suppose the cop could lie if he was a big enough of a tool bag, but generally only one person will get arrested and thats whoever is holding or has it when the cop walks up. or unless its your car or house then youre to blame by default unless someone else fesses up and takes the blame.

but pretty much yes to the rest of the post. i had a good friend in college that never drank or did any drugs but he would hang out with us all the time when we were. there was nothing weird or awkward about it. sometimes people would ask him if he wanted a beer or something and ask why when he said no, but that was about it. no one thought any less or differently of him because he didnt.

I'm not going to debate wether it's good or bad to use cause a few UG'ers do use and it would cause arguments but i have a similar situation. My Gf and I hang out with her friends. We are straightedged, no drugs and everything but they do. We compromise, we hang out clean then we do our own thing and they do theirs. You can still be friends if you don't use.

Constructive possession. He might not actually get charged with anything or convicted of anything, but his parents would probably be made aware of it if he's underage. He might get into trouble with them.

The law also changes in different jurisdictions.
