    what if there's a correlation between staying up late (due to a lack of caring) and alcohol abuse (due to a lack of caring)? maybe you're blaming the wrong people

  3. Brandon Teeter says:

    I wonder why people don’t just realize that teens walk around like zombies and get angsty because they don’t get to sleep.

    In HS I used to get up at 4:30am to work out in my room. I was a swimmer. When I got to college, well………………….. things changed.

  6. Yang Family says:

    call it what you wanna call it im a fuckin alcoholic

  7. James Bond says:

    hmm… makes sense that being an avid meth user between age 14-18 would lead to an early alcoholic binge and almost death (usually seen in mid-age or later people) at only age 22-26…

    this video also doesn't cover how heroin can save an alcoholics life, literally…. maybe its not official but it saved MY life. "too much" alcohol is the worst thing you can possibly do to yourself.
