Anyone live by the straight edge life style? I just recently started it over the summer, and feel better than ever. Anyone happy to not drink or get high?

You are not your job.
You're not how much money you have in the bank.
You're not the car you drive.
You're not the contents of your wallet.
You're not your fucking khakis.
You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.

No I'm not. I don't see why you have to completely cut out something from your lives so suddenly. A few beers here and then isn't gonna do any harm. A spliff every fortnight isn't either. I don't see whats wrong with doing things in moderation.

...but fair enough it's your choice. It's the kids that abuse you for drinking that I can't stand.

I love my drink and drugs too much to give up... yeah, I'm weak and I love it

No alcohol, drugs or ciggies for me, but I don't consider myself straightedge. I could never be a vegetarian.

I like my beer to much to go straight edge and I could never go vegetarian, but I never do drugs anyway.

I can see the headlines now "UG Loses the Yak-Man" :P


im straight edge, but not vegetarian. the main reason i am is because i want to combat the "Stoner Guitar Player" image that a lot of people cast onto me. so what if i have mediumish hair and play guitar? doesnt mean i smoke pot.
#23
I don't drink, do drugs, smoke, or have promiscuous sex but I refuse to identify with the "sXe" community because I think it's childish to flaunt your choices. Sure, it could be healthier... but you could also be obese at the same time as "sXe." I just think stigmas and labels are a little out-grown these days.

Lemme guess... you used Wiki? Straightedgers are COMMONLY vegetarian or vegan... not always.

I'm Straight Edge, but I definitely dont flaunt it like the guy above me said some people do. I dont tell people until they offer me alcohol or drugs. I also refrain from promiscuous sex.

And for Christ's sake, whats with all the people calling Straight Edge gay? Its a very idiotic thing to say. I could just as easily say your gay by choosing to drink alcohol. At least I remember what I did the night before.

Yea man. You don't need to make a thread telling the whole world 'I'm straight edge'. It makes Straight edge overrated, and something cool to be part of.

lol I dont know if I like to call myself "straight edge". I dont know why, it just sounds wrong.
I dont drink, and I dont smoke/do drugs.

But I do it because I like it like that. I like to keep my head clear.

Yeh...I drink and smoke pot. It's AWESOME. I'm going to die anyway, so are you, do I care if you live until 80 and I only live until 70? Nope.

Same.

I don't really drink/do drugs but I don't like group mentality, so I sort of stay away from the whole Straight Edge label. I do what I want to, and if that entails on some night having a glass of wine then I don't want 50 others patronising me cause I'm not "staying true".
#33
Well...I never drink with the intention of getting drunk. I don't do drugs or smoke.

I don't see the point getting wasted or high for the sake of it, but I don't ever see myself becomming straight edge.

haha! "straight edge means i'm better than YOU!!!"

i was edge for a couple years, no drink, no drugs. it was interesting and i felt good. i got bored though, i enjoy a drink every now and again

I don't drink, i don't do drugs.... And i prefer vegetarian food (though i'm not a vegetarian)...
I love Minor Threat and i'm in a hardcore band...
Guess that makes me straight edge!
But i don't call myself that or have crosses on the back of my hand!!

(I) Don't smoke
Don't drink
Don't ****
At least I can ****ing think

I can't keep up,
Can't keep up
Can't keep up
Out of step with the world

Doing things in moderation is the definition of straight edge, actually. So long as you don't let it become a huge part of your life.

People really need to understand Minor Threat before they start going on about what Straight Edge means..

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.
#37
I pretty sure at least half the people claiming to be straight edge arent actally straight edge, they just read a quick definition on wikipedia. Just because you don't smoke or drink doesn't make you sXe, there's more to it than that...


I'm sXe btw but I don't put crosses on my hand, well maybe the odd time if I'm going to a hardcore show, and I don't force my veiws on others... and because people have mentioed it for some reason, I'm not vegetarian.
#38
I love it when 14 year old kids pretend to be straight edge and act as if they know it all.
Me-'So you like Minor Threat then?'

Im not straight edge but I dont drink to the point of not knowing what Im doing, turns out there is a middle point.

straight edge is teh lulz.

in theory it lasts forever, in practice it ends at 18-21.
something called "college" and "an open mind" develops somewhere in your life.

Straight-edge is stupid, just because you don't drink, smoke or eat meat doesn't mean you have to start your own ****ty 'fad'
