Well, I'm just wondering, is anybody on UG straight edge??? And for people who are I have a question, how strict is it??? I know that it means you don't drink alcohol, do drugs, and the other stuff but how strict is it??? Just for alcohol I mean are you allowed a sip at a toast to something or not???

And yeah, thats all basically.

I have schizophrenia, I talk to myself,
People startin' to doubt my mental health,
Maybe someday I'll get the help I need,
But till then don't be blamin' mah weed.

That's what I thought, someone told me different, and that was all, I'd just had to check. Thankyou.

It's like anything, if you're vegan and you eat an animal product at all, you're not a vegan. I personally don't mind straight edge kids, but every single one of them these days is so obsessed with telling everyone who smokes that it's unhealthy for them.

Yeah, thanks. I was unaware.

EDIT: Just to clarify, I don't smoke, drink, or use. I just don't like the term straight edge because I feel like it's pretentious.

You're fifteen? That's not being straight edge, that's being a law abiding citizen.


Yeah, I know, but I'm planning to be straight edge when I'm older, well now as well, even though it is just law abiding as well.

I don't smoke, or drink. And don't plan on doing it?

But I don't believe in forcing beliefs upon others, so I don't go around getting pissed off at people for smoking.

Wait, your asking how strict it is because you want to be 'straight edge'?

Be yourself, if you want to have a sip of alcohol, do it. It sounds like you only want to be straight edge for the label of it.

When there's a lot of drugs, it's suddenly legal?
#22
I guess I'm technically straightedge since I don't do drugs or drink or anything, but I don't go around bragging about it. Labels are stupid, IMO. Just do what you want, don't force your beliefs on other people, and we should all get along fine.

#23
Why be Straight Edge? Why not just abstain from substances and sex without giving yourself a label?

I don't smoke, drink, or take drugs (I'm 17, and the legal age for light alcohol here is 16).
I don't enforce it on other people, though. I mean, if someone asks, I tell them that I don't drink, but I don't fly the flag or anything. Does that count as Straight Edge? I don't really think of it as a trend or a group to fit into...it's just a term to describe someone who doesn't drink or smoke.

I think in some cases, Straight Edge people also refuse casual sex.

straight edge kids don't approve of promiscuous sex.


i'm admittedly straight edge, but i couldn't care less what other people do. it isn't like i walk around telling people that drugs and alcohol are bad for them - i just ask kindly that they don't blow smoke in my face.

You can choose not to drink and all that without labelling yourself.
#33
Maybe you should just stay clear of drugs and alcohol instead of picking a side. Do you what you want.


EDIT: Ha, good post^
Soon you will sit on the bench

I was going to say that. I don't bother giving it a label. I don't drink, but if I feel like one I don't want to worry about being "straight-edge."

Are there any "advantages" of being Straight Edge™, rather than simply refusing drugs and alcohol?

Besides being part of a crowd that everyone hates?

I've technically been SE for near a ****ing month.
Vegan.
No drugs.
No alcohol.

But it's SO against my philosophy!
Only two UGers will understand this really, but I want to drink because I want to drink, but I don't want to drink because my body doesn't want to drink


There's only one thing we can do to thwart the plot of these albino shape-shifting lizard BITCHES!

I don't know....
I don't dink or do rugs or whatever. And I won't.
But I don't label myself as straight edge because I just don't see the point.

And I guess that edge has different lvls. (depends on the person)
Like to your thing about toasting, I think that'd be alright in most cases. Like if you drink to get buzzed or drunk, then it's a no-no but a glass of wine here or there is OK.
But some people will tell you that thats not ok either because it's still alcohol.
It all just depends on how extreme you want to be.

I think it's that you know/realize/figure-out that you don't need to **** with your mind to have a good time.
