    Shut up.

      lol this thread.


      if someone offers you a beer and you dont drink, just say you dont drink. i dont need to hear, "no thanks man, im straight edge." i cant hate on people that take it seriously and actually do it for healthiness. but ive seen a big bro at the beach drinking a beer with xxx across his back. ive had a few friends that were all about edge. one drinks normally now and the other does wayyyy more. if youre going to be edge and force it on others and beat people up, you better do that shit for life or ill have no respect for you haha. my one friend who was very dedicated to not drinking and smoking, even when all of us were huge stoners and drunks, he got killed by a drunk driver what the fuck irony

          I think being a righteous cunt about it is stupid. I don't care that you don't drink/smoke/do drugs - others do, so what? It's not YOUR problem.

                        we're not slaves, we're symbiotic and dependent. if you're sick why not take medicine to return to what you consider a "normal" state? if you feel anxiety or depression, why not block the neurotransmitters effecting you, or promote more activity in others? our bodies are ruled by chemicals, so once again, why limit yourself? you don't have to go out and do meth, but fuck it, smoking an 1/8th or drinking a pint won't do any more damage than a cheeseburger, bag of chips, soda, or breathing in city air.

                        soberness gives you the illusion of control. how exactly are you in control of your body? do you monitor your caloric and nutrient intake as well as your hormone levels? do you monitor your brain activity? you're not nearly as in control as you think. besides, if you measure control by acuteness, reaction time, or hand eye coordination, then caffeine makes you sober as hell.....
                        I would not call myself straightedge, but I don't do any drugs. I remain extremely judgmental about it, but I recognize that I have to live in the world that exists, so I have learned to appreciate drunk people. You guys and your drugs are actually pretty fun sometimes, I admit. Usually I even say "I don't want to get into this argument" when someone asks me why I don't do it.

                        That being said, Chimbaktu, as always, is trying to argue from a psuedo-scientific basis so that he looks smarter than he actually is, so something must be done about that.

                        First of all, a "normal" state for being sick is feeling sick, the same goes for sadness and anxiety. If you are feeling those things then you should be feeling them (in almost all cases). Second of all, drugs affect the chemistry of your body waaaay more than a cheesburger does. In fact, even very mild drugs, alcohol and marijuana, stimulate pleasure centers in your brain more than actually having sex stimulates the sexual pleasure center. That is why drugs are so addictive: they are technically more pleasureful than sex. On top of that, drugs are basically just push a button and BAM pleasure. Sure, physical activity will change the chemistry of your body (not as much as drugs will of course) but physical activity at least requires you to put in some effort in order to get that reward.

                        So, just to make things clear, this is hardly an ascetic position that I am defending here, I am not against having sex or having fun, all I am saying is that maybe we could take the middle path a little bit and just refrain from doing literally the most pleasureful thing we could possibly do. Especially since no effort is required to gain that pleasure, which strikes me as immoral, though morality is kind of a subjective thing, so maybe you don't see that point.
