Day 20 → Your views on drugs and alcohol.

Well, let's see.  I am a girl who likes a drink now and then.  Matt and I like to try different wines and experiment with different beers.  I've become a fan of the dirty martini (preferably with blue-cheese-stuffed olives).  We even make our own wine (we brewed a special batch as our wedding favors) and Matt's recently started brewing his own beer (he's in the process of making a chocolate stout!).   I think alcohol, to a point, is perfectly acceptable.  But it's a pretty slippery slope.  And I worry about some of our friends on that slope.

Drugs?  Well, that's just something that I'm not on board with.  Sure, I smoked a little pot in my day.  I could probably count the number of times I got high on one hand.  And I never liked it.  It just made me sleepy.  I never had the desire (or the guts) to try anything stronger than that.  I had friends who got into coke, and it changed them.  I had a few friends who popped pills, and I never approved of it.  And I knew of a couple people who got into heroin.  That was scary.  But yeah, I've never really understood the draw of drugs.  It just seems like too much of a risk to me.  Too much can go wrong.  And addiction is not a place I'd ever want to try to crawl out of.


  1. I'm pretty much in agreement with you all the way around!

  2. I feel pretty much the exact same way. And aren't blue cheese olives in dirty martinis the absolute best?!
