Did you smoke before 18? Drink before 21?

I didn't smoke until after I turned 18. (I don't smoke anymore, that didn't last long at all thankfully!) I did drink sporadically before I turned 21. I don't like alcohol, lol.

  • I drank more before I turned 21 than after. I only drink on rare occasions now. I smoked for all of 2 months, then quit. I hated the way it made my lungs feel and my voice was sounding ragged. Ick.

  • nope, but didn't smoke or drink after those ages either. I just never understood the concept of finding pleasure putting fire to a dried plant and inhaling that or by an altered state drinking nasty smelling liquid. I'm not bashing. I'm just saying I never found it tempting.

  • Yup. And then I realized it made me feel awful and stink and act like a dumbass so I quit.
