Teenager smoking or drinking?!

Question: Teenager smoking or drinking!?
im just wondering!.

okay, im 15 and in 11th grade!. i drink alcohol and stuff like that when i go to parties on some weekends!. but i nvr smoke ne thing!. not even cigarettes!.

so here is my question:
do you think its worse to smoke or drink!? in general!. or do you think they're both equally bad!. idk!.

and like, should i think bad of ppl that smoke, if i drink sometimes!?
some of my friends smoke and drink!. my friends smoke pot and cigarettes!. and they take pills!. and i think they're stupid to do that!. to me, smoking and taking pills is a lot more serious than drinking!.

wat do u think of all of this!?
thanks for all of your answers!


i think that drinking every now and again is ok, as long as u are resposible, if u drink every night then sure, thats stupid
but on a friday have a beer or 2 yea sure!.
smoking is just stupid, what does it give u, nothing, alchol gives u a state of mind smoking nothing but cancer,
unless its a refer or so which i say u should not smoke until u are 18 and then if u want why not, its a relaxing drug that is not so dangeous unlike alchol which makes people loud and agressive!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.
but pills and chemicals are not cool in anyway!. if u do this then u are just plain crazy and stupid!.

just opinon, not factWww@FoodAQ@Com

If you want to be cool you need to drink AND smoke!. Just doing one of them is not enough!. People won't take you seriously!. The negative side effects are outweighed by the buzz and the fact that they make you more attractive!. Besides, you won't experience any disadvantages until you're much older, so enjoy life while you're young!. It's easy to give up either smoking or drinking when you're older if you change your mind!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

when you smoke, the results are like really visible eg; bag breath, teeth, fingers
it's pretty gross
alcohol wise; everyone drinks, but not everyone smokes
I'm just like you, drinking at parties but avoid the smokes
even last night i was one of the only 3 people at a gatho that didn't smoke
definitely worse to smoke!. at least alcohol will kill you if you drink too much in one go, but no one is stupid enough to drink that much
and smoking kills you insideWww@FoodAQ@Com

At 15 I highly doubt that you are drinking responsibly!.
So yes, it is equally as bad as your friend's smoking and doing drugs!.

There are negative side effects of all of these "hobbies"
I however would be more concerned about your friend's "Pill taking" habbits!. What kinds of pills are these!?


They are definitely both harmful to your body!.!.I wouldn't do either of them!. Gross!.!.!.!. You can hurt your body by smoking!.!.!.you can get emphysema, and die, like my great Aunt recently!.!.!.and you can get into trouble!.!.cause hurt to those you love, and even DIE by drinking!. Be careful!.!.!.God Bless you!Www@FoodAQ@Com

I think you're too young for smoking OR drinking, especially since both of them are illegal!. But, in the long run, drinking is worse for you - it kills alot more people than smoking ever did! Not many car accidents are caused because someone is smoking!Www@FoodAQ@Com

I think drinking is okay- unless you do it every day because that can mess you up!. I think smoking is worse, it kills you faster!. Some drugs mess up your brain too!. Pot is okay, but if it starts to change you then its bad!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

HeyHeyHey (:
I'm 13 And I Drink SOMETIMES! Not All The Time, Just On Special Occasions And That, But I Don't Think Its Bad To Drink When It's On Special Occasions And That, Just Don't Binge Drink, But I'd Never Smoke (: xWww@FoodAQ@Com

their equally bad but smoking is more addictive i think, drinking is ok, but just dont get drunk and stupid, cuz the next day everyone will b laughing at u!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

They are equally bad!. Don't follow in your friends footsteps cause they are on the wrong rode!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

They're both illegal for you to do, but alcohol does less damageWww@FoodAQ@Com

Hey stick with drinking just do what i do - drink till your buzzed then stop youl have more fun!Www@FoodAQ@Com

You are in the 11th grade and only 15!?!? Damn!. Well you must be smart enough to know that both are not good for you!. While smoking has potentially more long-term consequences, drinking, especially by irresponsible teenagers(you OR you friends) is more likely to get you into trouble now!. If it is getting caught with possession or getting pulled over, or making bad decisions that can effect the rest of your life(unprotected sex with a loser) or even getting yourself or a friend hurt or killed, these things will have an impact on you much sooner that the "black lung"!.
I would have to say that drinking (at your age anyway) is a little worse that smoking!. Statistically, I'm sure fewer teenagers die or are injured from a pack of smokes that there are from alcohol related accidents!.
Example: A young man has never drank or smoked before!.
Goes to a big party!.
A!.!. smokes an entire pack of cigarettes for the first time!. Assuming he doesn't continue to smoke for years to come, he will probably only have a sore throat the next day
B!.!. drinks until he becomes drunk, or even just enough to impair his judgement!. Gets into a car with an even more wasted friend!. Has a horrible wreck, is killed and the driver is paralyzed!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Well obviously the mature and adult answer is that you shouldn't do either young lady! But I suppose that would be somewhat hypocritical!.

Neither is good for your health!. Both are addictive!. The younger you are when you start, the higher is the chance you'll get addicted and the more damage they will do to your body and brain!.

That said, I don't think that smoking in itself is worse than drinking or vice versa!. It all depends on how you deal with your drinking!. Some people have no head for it and act like jerks when they're drunk!. Other people can handle it quite well!. I'd say a person who gets angry and violent when drinking is worse than a person smoking!. But I'd also say that a person smoking around other people with no concern for their health or wishes is worse than a person who can handle their drink responsibly!.

To me, smoking pot and taking pills sounds more serious than smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol and I think your stance on this is the right one!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
