Why do you think people like to get high or drunk?

When I was younger I did it to blend in but once I got some sense I decided to be clean besides I always felt too paranoid. I never did understand the purpose of being high...hmm?
Can someone please elaborate?

  • Honestly, I think people in adulthood, do it to escape responsibility, consequences, emotions, etc. Its a good way to not have to deal with life.

  • I believe different people do it for different reasons. Some do it to go with the crowd while others do it to get away from their so called (or maybe it really is) horrible life. I am sure there are other reasons but those are probably the more popular ones...

  • I sincerely think it depends on the person. I won't lie, if it wasn't illegal I would probably smoke pot - like a hit a day. I go 100 miles an hour all day every day, and then I sit up until 11 pm because I can't sleep. A single hit of pot slows me down just enough to relax and fall asleep at a decent hour, but still be able to wake up the next morning, no problem and without a hangover feeling. BUT I could never risk getting in trouble now that I have a little one to think about, soooo no pot for me! LOL

  • I don't drink to get drunk ever, and not at all now because I 'm pregnant, but prior to that it was nice to go out with other adults and get a little buzz and have fun. Don't do it in front of DD and I always make DH drive though, lol.

  • Boredom. Stress. Unhappiness. Immaturity. Not in all cases, of course..but I wouldn't doubt it for most.
