Lol. Be wise people, you don't have to have a hangover and puke all over the place for you to know that the aftereffects of being drunk aren't fun. You don't have to shoot up heroine in your arm for you and overdose to know that drugs can kill. You don't have to keep having unprotected sex and then contract HIV for you to know that AIDS is real. Open your eyes and learn from the mistakes of others around you. We all have moments of error in our lives but we all DON'T have to mess up to the same degree.
