what's the world coming to...
there were at least 2 girls and a boy who started somoking at 8 in my class
i see kids walking home from school smoking, it's just so depressing!
Like a fe times in the last year. A a crate of beer for some 15/16 year olds.
I say LET 'EM PARTY!
and the kids were about 14 who were smoking.
for 15+ but not fags.
then again, I'm too young to buy my own alcohol so there goes that :(
basically teenagers generally drink for a good fun night like a party, whereas smoking is just a bad habit that can kill you.
obviously there's a chance the person I buy alcohol for could just go home and drink themselves to death but I'd like to think they're not going to do that.
I realise my argument is probably going to get torn to shreds here.
out their faces on the street and walk out infront a car or something of that nature?
They have free will.They don't have to drink it.If you don't buy it for them ,somebody else will,etc.
That's why they aren't allowed to buy it for themselves.
NOT 9 year olds.
Yeah, alright, it's not that bad, but still if I had a 16 year old kid I might be a bit pissed off if someone bought alcohol for them.
and you be more responsible! that doesn't mean I should buy them fags instead or be as willing to buy them fags, just because they could get drunk and hurt themselves.
I meant they should be more responsible.
and if they are hanging about waiting for people to buy them alcohol they obv dont know any better. Parents would be blamed first, followed by the person who bought them drinks.
It's very irresponsible.
I've been (and technically still am) a teenager who's had to get people to buy alcohol for me, I (and my friends) have always been responsible, I realise not all teenagers are like this but I think more trust needs to be put into some of us. You can be 30 and still do something dangerous or stupid when you are drunk.
and you will disagree with an adults point of view on this subject (that sounbs very condescending, i dont mean to be!)
The minimal drinking age law is there for a reason.
but I'm not a child by much else, I think if you're giving a responsible teenager alcohol then there's no problem. I'm not just saying this because I'm underage, I'm not actually much of a drinker anymore but I believe there's plenty of people out there mature enough to handle drink without serious damage to their bodies or themselves. Obviously heavy drinking would be more likely to harm younger people's livers and organs but still, there are responsible underage drinkers out there and irresponsible overage drinkers (can you say "overage?").
They had a good time because of ME.
I'm improving lives.
and what are you doing out of scotland :|
and picking up bad habits :(
you've never even met me and you're calling me short, what the fuck man? :p
and i've seen pictures...
so just because you're a foot taller than me, 12 measly inches! doesn't mean I'm short, so shush ¬_¬
I thought it was a pretty weak argument but hey, I win!
"Is Ralph there?"
that ralph is a boy's name!
I've never met one, just my cat!
though i've never actually met him...
if you....fed him.
happy days is excellent! you know, with the fonz...
just never watched it, or at least not recently as I have no memory of it!
"That's what she said" I will hurt you!
i haven't said that in so long... shows how long it's been since we spoke eh?
maybe 5 months? :O jesus that's ages.
and I knew a few kids that smoked around that age..
why is there always one CRRRRAAAAZY friend who manages to blag a single cigarette off an older brother and make everyone share it.
smoking straight tobacco is dogshit
roll ups are bearable but I'm not a big tobacco fan.
that'll put him off
i said no...
they've got to learn somehow...
I turned 17 and I pretty much stopped....I'm a shit teenager :(
go out and make a fool of yourself!
I have things to buy and digs money to pay.
I'm old and have to work and stuff :(
at a party when i was 14 or 15. my little brother is that age now and i seriously can't imagine him getting fucked up, me and my friends must have looked like such douche bags drinking jd and smoking weed at 14.
"sad" would be a better word.
so i can't really say anything :(
and i still do!
but the difference being that it's been legal for the last 2 or 3 years (the alcohol).
if i was a parent and i knew my 14 year old was drinking jd with their little undeveloped livers, id have kittens.
no wonder parents worry.
mine still does, and i'm like 18.
your were well douched
I've been a responsible drinker/stoner for the last 3-odd years.
i just take their money and use it to buy jelly babies.
until the babies.
we all know jelly beans > jelly babies.
it's all about the beans!
so fuck knows, buy me both for my birthday? ;)
some jelly beans and some babies for your 18th...
it'll be one to remember!
best "Well done you're an adult!" present ever :p
not good. i couldn't ever do it, i'd feel far too gulity.
they could've stabbed you and stole your fags
The hands don't grow in until they're 11.
They can scratch their veins.
Very common where I live.
It's raining jazz.
itchy....whatever word you prefer really.
supposed to know you shouldn't lie to an insurance company about your husband being dead just to claim loads of money? Some of us need explicit specific guidelines to get through life...
I better tell Marcus to get out the shed.
