I do neither, but not because I'm an abstainer. I don't smoke because it's bad for you and I don't think I'd have the willpower to quit. Knowing your own limits after all is a persons greatest strength. (Or is it?) I don't drink because of a heriditarily narrow-ducted pancreas that makes me extremely susceptable to pancreatitis which is one of the most painful deseases out there, and happens to be triggered by alchohol. Thus, no drink in one and a half years, no cigarettes ever.
Why the hell am I on the computer at 1 in the morning? No, don't answer.
Being an abstainer or straight edge or any other think like that is just a pretty pathetic way for youths to be cool and non-conformist, while actually inadvertantly conforming to a group. I have absolutely no problem with people not smoking or drinking, but if they're doing it for the sake of calling themselves an asbstainer or something, then I do have a problem.
"I like my lungs and brain cells." Great line! I'm an abstainer, too. People just don't see how incredibly destructive tobacco and alcohol could be. I'm kinda curious about who first started smoking. "Hey you! Put this plant in your mouth, light it on fire, and inhale the fumes. C'mon! It's fun!"
