I'm not proud of it but I use to drink and smoke weed. I drank mainly because it was the "cool" thing to do. If I didn't go out every weekend and get completely trashed my friends would get really mad at me and wouldn't let me live it down until I went out again.. I live in a really small town of a population of less than 3,000, there is nothing to do in my town except drink. So getting drunk was the only thing i thought was fun, in my town at least.
I smoked weed for basically the same reasons. If I didn't smoke when my friends were they would make fun of me until I did it. So peer pressure played a big role in it.

No respect, No discipline, and ignorance. Some and I say SOME, young people lack the any of the things I listed in the beginning, so they rebel, they think they are it and all that, Show off and think it's fun and games to them, and it's there way of life. Yet! heartless plays a part too. So you have a number of things that makes them like so. Also, it's depends were they live, depends on there up bringing. depends on the way they were brought up. and finally, there heart, there minds, there attitude, don't know any difference.

A lot of young people will think they can away with it, well yes they can, to a certain amount. But when they grown up, all the things comes back to play in there lives, lets put it this way, they don't like it, some may hide the fact they hat it when its them its happening to. But its happens.

Pray for them, young people are people too. and maybe they have had no opertunity to express any goodness, as some are forced into some of the situations of the way they are. So pray for them, and be example to them, and show God's love and care. So in hope they can have that free will to change for the better.

Those forgiven more tend to love God more, as the scripture tells us in Luke.

People just wanna do it. I like cookies and I might be getting a little tummy... But I just enjoy cookies. People are just dumb sometimes and they make dumb decisions, and NO ONE likes to be told what to do for their own good. Picture being old in a retirement home with your current mindset, and now imagine everyone treating you like a child again after all you've been through in life. It's no wonder old people can be so grumpy, no one takes them seriously. We never change and we need to understand that.
