Getting a high, is not required to enjoy yourself.
Why would I change who I am?
To fit in...?
...with other people who do drugs?
I used to smoke pot a long time ago.... but I grew out of it.
I realized that the people who do drugs all the time let it take over their life.
Pretty soon they are asking people left and right.... do you do this?
Why don't you do this its fun... "Dude I was high on this yesterday and..."
No thanks.... its sad
Take weed for example...
Not a day goes by where some pothead douchebag posts on the forums... OMG "weed this" or "pot that"
People who smoke weed almost need to search out more people that smoke in order to make themselves feel better about it. They have to label themselves in their signature or in their username or anywhere they can think of.... they try and send a message "Hey I'm a pot smoker... and I advertise it so you can be my pot smoker friend"
They even have a club here on Newgrounds. Its sad really.
Doing drugs and/or smoking pot is not an activity in itself.
You do whatever drug it is... AND then you go out and do something, to make your experience better.
If you are a loser.... you end up using it as a calling card to make friends...
Hey I smoke pot... I'm cool.
No you aren't.
I don't need to alter who I am to have a good time..... I don't need to "get stupid" in order to impress others or make new friends.
So why would I?
Its a waste of money.
It jeopardizes your ability to get a decent job.
