Got A Bad Feeling About Today

I'm supposed to meet up with a friend I haven't seen in a couple months today for a party that is going to be full of people I don't know and I'm feeling like I don't really want to do this shit now. I mean anything is better than doing nothing becuase I THINK I will regret it later and then I remember the last time I hung out with this old friend and he got too drunk and wanted to fight me for whatever reason but it was just a few people and I knew them so it was kinda funny but he always seems to want to fight people when drunk lol. Now if some crazy shit happens, my back is against the wall becuase I don't know these people and I know my friend hangs out with a lot of hardcore druggies (which a lot of my old friends are but I knew them so it was okay) so I think this could turn out bad.

I think maybe I take a few shots and I'm good but maybe not, I never know what I'm gonna act like when the liqour is in my blood, usually I'm happy and get talkative but one time when I got really wasted I started out talkative and then I got really depressed and I made a fool out of myself but I still had some serious shit going on at that time but I'm still nervous about this. Should I go???

Hm...if it feels like it'd be dangerous to go, I say better safe than sorry. But if you're just feeling anxious, I say go. I'd also tell my friend "Look, no offense, but when you get drunk, you get kinda violent and I don't wanna be thrown into it around a bunch of strangers"

And of course, watch your drinking. It's common for people to get depressive when they drink a lot because that's just the general effects of alcohol - at first you feel really happy and relaxed but for a lot of people, once they drink too much, alcohol just makes them feel depressed and the happy relaxation goes away.

Yeah, I also don't want to drink too much becuase I won't want to stay there all night becuase I got to drive back home too. I'm just gonna go, I think I'll take some shots to take the edge off soon after I get there, stay a few hours and leave.

I swear to god, every ****ing teenage party involves booze, drugs, and other ****. I went to a friends grad party a while back, everything there was spiked with alchohal. EVEN THE MEATBALLS! And talk about peer pressure... "comon drink this, drink that, try this, lets have...." why would anyone consider this fun?

That sounds gross! Do they not have any taste buds?

I don't like the bar/party scene either. Day before thanksgiving, I took my bf to work after hours for a party my manager was having, and I was thoroughly bored and sick of the cigarette smoke in my face. I also realized that no matter how old people are, when they're trying to fit in with a bar crowd, they revert back to high school, telling stories that may or may not be true to impress the people in front of them.

You'll be fine, scouts honor. Just make sure you know your limit and don't put yourself into a bad situation if you can help it. If things get intense just leave but drive home safely please!

That's why I have no social life at all in real life :D I'd rather be alone than do that shit.

A few beers won't hurt you unless you drive, really. It also helps to loosen you up.

Developing an addiction is bad, but a few beers, a few puffs of a joint... I don't think so. I've done all the above and I don't have any addiction.

I rarely drink, but if someone offers me a beer and I'm not driving, I'll take it. You'll feel a little buzzed, maybe a little less nervous. Big deal.

It all comes down to the type of people at that party. Use your judgement wisely. If you don't like them while they're sober, you sure won't like them drunk.

Some people from my family started saying that: "Oh it's only a little glass, only one little can, only one cigarette/joint"! I will be fine!, I can control it!, I won't get addicted!" and after some years ended up in the hospital from overdoses of each (and other things), one of them died.

Some people know where their limits are. Some people can control themselves, others can't.

I understand what you're saying, but generally, I wouldn't put a big taboo on alcohol or most other mild toxins.

You can not overdose on marijuana. I'm sorry to hear about your loss but marijuana is not the cause of that.


To overdose, you would have to consume 40,000 times as much marijuana as you needed to get stoned. In contrast, the ratio for alcohol varies between 1 to 4 and 1 to 10. It is easy to see how upwards of 5000 people die from alcohol overdoses every year and no one EVER dies of marijuana overdoses.

Marijuana might put you in the hospital with a psycosis, but you have to be really unlucky for that. Also, me and a friend calculated once that you have to smoke about 70 kilos of it at once in order to die, that'll make your blood clot up totally.

Alcohol is by far the biggest killer of any euphoria enducing product. Its a common legal substance everywhere, so its very easy to come by - the good thing is that you have to be very "persistent" to get addicted (drink everyday, maybe because of bad mood, then your body will start craving it)

I know, I was speaking about substances in general actually. What i mean is, the end was overdose, but everything started with something "little". That little of something seemed inoffensive, but the addiction started, it couldn't stop, it got worse and everything ended that way (after some years). Even in the worst moments they would say it was no big deal and it was okay. My point is, those things are not something to take less seriously, we are talking about addictive things that screw up your health and mind, and are not necesary... I mean seriously, what is the point of introducing that into your system?. I don't want to sound like i'm bitching though, People are fee to do what they want... This is just an opinion.

Not at all, I'm sorry if I sounded rude before. I do know personally that some people can become quite addicted to it. It isn't something to be taken lightly for people with addictive behaviors but I won't lie and say I don't do it. I can also say though that it's the only thing I do, never tried a cigarette, I do not drink and I can barely swallow an ibuprofen. Saying no is not a problem for me at all.

Well, it's good that you can say no and you know your limits. Just be careful ;3 And don't worry, you didn't sound rude at all.

I just got back, yeah it was my anxiety, talked to a few people but chilled out mostly and I know all about the drugs and stuff but I was just worried about the people I didn't know, but it was cool, the guy who owned the house was really ****ed up and kept talking to me about his past and how real I was and stuff, it was funny. And Krista is right I know you cannot overdose off marijuana it's impossible and I stopped for like 3 weeks now when I was smoking like a chimney before, it just made me paranoid. But I took a couple hits for old times sake tonight again and I feel great. But I'm not getting back on the wagon, recreationl use only lol. Now I'm going to sleep becuase that was a long drive home lol

And I also never did other drugs, I never gave into peer pressure and I got mroe respect for it. I have friends who roll every weekend yet, I won't take E. I have old friends who do coke every weekend too, but I never sniffed that up my nose. I've only smoked, drank and I smoked cigarettes in middle school to try and be "cool" but that was a one year thing only 7th grade lol. Now I hardly do anything. Later
