Default Fitting In

So, I've had a pretty steady group of friends since 7th grade, however lately we seem to be drifting apart. I'm a junior in high school, and this year is so different than any other year. I guess I'm just maturing, but I really don't care for drinking, smoking, the party scene basically. And so, I haven't really been hanging out with my friends on the weekends anymore because that is all they do now. I live in Louisiana, the Bible Belt, so if you aren't drinking and smoking, then you are apart of the religious fanatics. I'm agnostic and have no future aspirations of becoming religious. So lately, I've kinda just been stuck at home doing nothing. I mean, my friends and I still hang out during the week, but it's just kind of annoying when they talk about shit from the weekend that I wasn't there for. Idk, there's not really anything I can do, but I just wanted to vent.

There really isn't anything to do except get new friends to hang out with. I'm right there with you in the nonparty club. Its at the point for me where Ill slap any of my friends if they mention getting fucked up at all.

I'm an atheist, so I'm right with you.
Also, just because you're not out there getting wasted, doesn't mean you can't have fun going out. Get dinner with friends, go ice skating, or just do some people watching in a mall. Hope everything works out for you!

Zach!

@Pokemon Master, lets get fucked up. I need to get down.

Anyways, now that I'm done messing with Zach: He's right. Find new friends, as difficult as that may seem. You're very articulate. Why not join a club at school with people like you? For me, that was debate. It was right up my ally, crowd wise. I hate parties and large groups, so that worked really well for me.

Default Re: Fitting In

If you really wanted to stick with your friends then maybe make efforts to invite them on your own outings? If not then you don't have to drink and smoke at a party. I understand you not wanting to be there if they're all getting wasted though, I think you should find a group of friends more suited to you. It's natural to drift away from people as you grow up anyway so I suppose it's about time you found a new group who can feel more comfortable with and with whom you have more in common.
