someone scold me and persuade me not to smoke. i never have before and my group of friends has been straightedge. but, this new guy ive been hanging out with does them a lot. i want to be able to be friends with him and not worry about doing them, and it's not a matter of peer pressure. i don't mind standing alone. it's just, i'm such a stressful person and lately my attitude has been " i'm a teenager, i need to live it up, who cares if they're bad ect ect ect". common sense tells me no but the teen stupidity tells me YES. so all of you kick my butt and tell me noo.
