I’m 16 but I hate alcohol/smoking/drugs Watch

    I’m currently 16 but I have never smoked in my life and I absolutely hate the idea of it - the smoke I smell in public is awful. I sometimes have small sips of alcohol at dinner but I would never drink a proper glass of alcohol - I prefer juice. I also have no desire to take drugs either. These are all things that some younger people do at parties. Is it common for younger people to completely avoid taking drugs/alcohol and even avoid doing so for their whole lives?

    I'm 18 now, but I've always been the same as you. Went on my graduation trip after finishing my IB exams and I didn't have one alcoholic drink, smoke or do drugs... it's something that really doesn't appeal to me

    Yes, I completely agree with you. I hate alcohol, drugs and smoking. I’ve never come into contact with drugs as I’m not a party goer, the only parties I would go to are with a small group of close friends who don’t take drugs either. They do drink quite a bit but they understand that I really don’t like it so they don’t force me to have some too. The closest I’ve been to people smoking at parties is at after party for prom, someone brought cigarettes and everyone started smoking but I went home with my best friend before it started. I’m glad that there is someone out there who agrees with me!

    I really doubt anyone cares if you avoid it. It's your choice, whether it's "common" to avoid it or not. I've drank a bit and smoked before, and tbh dude it's not worth it at all.

    People who want to be healthy. There’s literally no benefit to drinking it. Besides, who doesn’t love an innocent smoothie instead of beer?

    I'm pretty similar to you. I'm nearly 17 and I've never smoked, though I've unfortunately inhaled second-hand smoke from my mother. I've never smoked myself though or used a vape. I have drank but only in small dosages. My friends have drunk but only one has got excessively drunk, and that was back when we were Year 10 so she doesn't drink excessively any more. The closest I've been to drunk is tipsy. I'm not going to lie; I have drank alcohol with my friends but I'm sensible so I've drank in moderation. I'm not prepared to be reckless and let myself fall for peer pressure or get drunk. I've drank a few times with my friends but they know I'm sensible with alcohol which is fine. I am never going to touch drugs of any sort, though. It's not worth it.

    Never done drugs or smoked and it has worked out fine for me! If you don't enjoy it, then don't do it, you can have fun without all 3 of them!

    You are not alone, this generation has the lowest rate of people smoking, drinking and doing drugs. For example "The amount of teenagers using illegal drugs has halved since 2001."

    Mate, it does NOT matter. I'm sorta the same. I will never smoke - I know someone close to me who got cancer because of smoking, it's such an unhealthy, horrendous habit/industry to get into/support - and I will also never take illegal drugs for the same reasons. I don't wanna get arrested, I don't wanna get mental and physical health problems and I just wanna have a healthy, happy, fulfilling life (Cheesy, I know, but at least I'm the bigger, better person).
    I do drink, however, but drinking is NOT as bad as smoking or drugs, trust me.
    So yeah I may be a pussyy, but at least I'll have a longer life, a brilliant job that'll support me and my family and I'll have a healthy body that i'm proud of

    I'm in my early 20's and have never really smoked or taken drugs, but I do drink. And honestly some of the best/ funniest times of my life have been when I've been out with my friends having some drinks. I only drink once or twice a week usually but it is a very social thing to do and I personally enjoy it However I didn't really start drinking until I was 17/18 so if it's worrying you and you would like to do it at some point then you have time!
    On the other hand my life has probably been better or at least unchanged by not smoking or taking drugs.
