It gives you an in depth view of where it all originated from back in the 80s.
If you donīt know bands like Minor Threat, Black Flag, Gorilla Biscuits, Judge, Youth Of Today, Chain Of Strength, Bold, Slapshot etc... and where they stood for, there is a big chance you donīt really know what you are talking about. These are the bands that defined straight edge. The baseline of straight edge is that you donīt do drugs. thatīs it. there is also a big part of it that has to do with respect for yourself and others and that is where the "no promiscious sex" part comes in. That just means you donīt go ****ing around. Thatīs it. No one will prohibit you to have sex with your long standing girlfriend, what would be the point of that? there is not one reason why you should think "no sex" is that strict, that makes no sense at all, maybe when youīre 15, but not at 25.
Over the years there have been alot of influences on straight edge, bands like Youth Of Today (Ray Cappo-Shelter) and Earth Crisis lead to vegetarianism being associated with straight edge, or even veganism. While I am vegī and consider it a part of my sxe interpretation, there is no "rule" that you should not eat meat to be sxe.
That is the core of sxe, kids who denounce this poisoned drug society and decided that they can make it without all the substances, that they can be cool without smoking, that they can have fun without doing drugs, that its not "emo" to have convictions and values in life... and that they donīt let them being ****ed over. It just comes down to being a better person, or at least trying to be. I stayed true since I was 15 and donīt regret it one second. At first people may laugh at you, but when they see that you still carry the same convictions in a matured way 10 years later, they will respect that.

There are many interpretations on straight edge, and all of those CAN be good... you just donīt drug yourself and have respect for eachother.
You can discuss all night long wheter krishna, vegan, hardline, metalcore, old skool or whatever needs to be associated with sxe, but that doesnīt matter, unless you are a hardline adept of one of those visions...

P.S. All flames or abuse will be reported!

Good to hear there are others, I think it brings a good image for the newcomers and their families to know there is a large percentage that is edge.

This thread is so awesome. I am so happy I really feel like smoking some cigarettes, while drinking until I pass out, then come-to and shoot up in celebration. Who is with me?

What all is considered straight edge on here, some people consider it no drugs/alcohol smoking, some throw sex in there, There were a few people at college that went even more hardcore than that, they were anti everything.

being straight edge has nothing to do with religion. It has completely to do with being able to not follow the crowd and drink/smoke to look cool. People all do it for different reasons. My mother was an alcoholic and died from it when her liver failed. So im straight edge mroe or less in honor of her, and so that i risk following in her footsteps at all.

I can say i have been straight edge my entire life, and that i wont ever stop. i made it through all of high school, and my first year of college no problem. It isnt hard to do. I have never drank, never smoked, and never done any drugs. Nor will I.

Josh. thanks for teh sympathy, but thats not why i posted my story at all. I posted it so people would realize some people have good reasons for why they do things, and possibly so they could try to understand straight edge people before degrading them online for no reason.
