    Fun fact- I am straight edge and have never drank alcohol, smoked, or done drugs...

    Did your parents influence you in some way or you just chose not to?

    Same here, though I've tasted token amounts of alcohol in special circumstances eg: a friend was extremely proud of his homebrew beer so I had to taste it. To me alcohol is an unpleasant experience, even in small concentrations, similar to straight tobasco sauce.

    I have asthma, so smoking anything is a bad idea.

    Recreational drugs just never seemed like they'd be worth the potential legal entanglements.

    Now that I've had opiates in a legitimate medical context, I also know that I have unpleasant reactions to most of them (eg: projectile vomiting), which is kind of a deterrent to ever becoming hooked on them.

    So for me, there's no 'there' there. But it can be a problem socially because people who do enjoy these things often think you're making a moral judgement on them.

    I do have some political objection to illegal drugs because they are the cash cow that funds gang violence. And of course nobody should drive or do other dangerous activities when their reflexes and judgement might be substance-impaired--that's just common sense.

    I can’t roller skate,
    never tried to ice skate
    (seemed like roller skating with the possibility of bleeding to death),
    I’m a horrible snow skier,
    never tried snowboarding but........
    Safe to say I am uncoordinated.

    I won't eat eggplant or squash because I don't like their names.

    I played the clarinet in my elementary school band.

    I don't like to think of myself as a sensitive guy, I'm definitely not...

    But I've always been easily moved, and look for inspiration in everything 💕

    The only drug I have ever tried is alcohol.
