drvgxnite said: things like hallucinogenic drugs that really can help you open your mind to the world and change your outlook on life? for me it has always been in a positive way.
I feel you, my problem is not really recreational drug/alcohol use.
I choose straightedge as a representation of my full opposition to societies stance on alcohol and drug use. My problem with it is that it is now expected and normal in the western world to get wasted every weekend or even throughout the week. How do you have time to think in your own mind? 9-5 youre working, 6-10 youre drinking to forget about it, you go to sleep and do it all again tomorrow. People are too drunk to realise how fucked the world is. How much they hate their jobs, how pointless their lives have been etc. People have a lot of potential when they are angry or upset with how things are, but instead of doing anything about it, we drink til we forget about it and get over it. Fuck that. And I hate that it is wierd to choose not to put unhealthy shit into your body and do literally nothing all night somewhere that would have been boring without the drinks.
If once a month you take some drug to think about something from a different perspective, thats cool, I wouldnt do it that way but its personal choice and unless you fuck it up, it probably not going to kill you any more quickly thanany macdonalds people eat is.
Its all personal choice and I dont have a problem with people on the day to day. I just hate that on the whole, youre wierd if you dont want to kill your brain cells at every chance you get when there is so much more to enjoy jn the world and so many problems that need our attention. Hope this kind of answers your question, im on my phone so I cant see what im writing properly haha
So jealous of all the cool girls that have cool best friends.
Where’s my cool hardcore listenin’, vegan fightin’, straight edge reppin’ best girl friend?
Anywhere remotely close to this would be rad.
"If you hate your parents, the man or the establishment, don’t show them up by getting wasted and wrapping your car around a tree. If you really want to rebel against your parents, out-learn them, outlive them, and know more than they do."
Why would I want to listen to xvx bands?
… Maybe because like every fucking person in this world I like to listen to lyrics I can relate to?
Ok so I thought it was time that i answered a few questions that I have been getting about why I chose to claim edge.
So here goes!
I found self confidence, in my sobriety!
I found a place where I feel safe, a testament against the grain!
Holy shit, people still dont understand the personal 'choices'. its not a personal choice if youre fucking up other peoples lives!
Second hand smoke kills as many as 60,000 non-smokers fucking annually. Thousands of people who never touched the stuff die because they had the terrible misfortune about being around a bunch of god damn dickholes who can’t not spend thousands of god…

No one gets me like Have Heart gets me.
Also, I just found animal free licorice bullets in Kmart.
VEGAN STRAIGHT EDGE RULES MY LIFE
“Strength of mind rests in sobriety; for this keeps your reason unclouded by passion.”
“The earth affords a lavish supply of riches, of innocent foods, and offers you banquets that involve no bloodshed or slaughter; only beasts satisfy their hunger with flesh, and not even all of those, because horses, cattle, and sheep live on grass. As long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seeds of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.”

Vegetarians, when did you let yourself stop caring?
Vegetarians, I love that you’re making a difference and trying to support a meat free and cruelty free world. But the dairy and egg industries are full of torture, rape and death which is debatably worse that just death, why not keep going? If you couldnt justify the murder and damage when you made the veg decision earlier, how do you get past it now? :c sorry to all of the friends I lose in 3, 2, 1…
If you let yourself believe this is untrue, you are putting up the same mental blocks to.your compassion that meat eaters do. I know you all want to be better than that.
We are the last of a dying breed,
And these words become our only release.
Straight edge is my weapon of choice,
No one can silence my voice!
