I just love when people are all about being straight edge in their younger years because it was a big part of the punk/hardcore scene...and then they grow up and realize they don't want to live the straight edge life anymore...but to each their own...
i totally agree with you, i stop calling myself "straight edge" like three months ago. not because i lost any ideals, just because it became too much of a title. i still don't do anything that i didn't do when i was edge and don't intend on stopping but i just don't want to be associated any type of a scene or anything like that
"if you're not straight edge now, you never were", so clearly i never was. but back when i was, i had different reasons for it. alcohol had never tasted good, and i had too many alchoholics in the family, asthma kept me from wanting to smoke anything, and i disliked hippies and ravers, so i didn't want anything to do with drugs, since i associated all drugs with hippies and ravers. then i tried some good beer, and i liked it. so i drank more of it. i'm still drinking it. but i'm not a hippy or a raver, thankfully.
also with what jeff said befor about this being a good debate and not a pissing contest is awesome. it just goes to show that theres a bunch of good level headed people on here. i havnt read anything saying "go drink an f'n beer you p***y", lol.

This has been a good discussion to read. I've never really had the urge to label myself, but respect those who have stuck it out.
