Name: Amanda

Age: 14

Location: Pennsylvania

How long have you been sXe?: Well, my actions have always been the Straight Edge way, but actually being a member of "Straight Edge"... it'll be a year in about 2 months. XD!

Why did you become sXe?: A lot of my older friends on the soccer team always talked about being Straight Edge. And I wanted to be "Cool" like them. So, I always included myself when they talked about it... Later on, I really got into it. I mean, I watched some of my very good friends ruin their lives with Beer and Drugs... and I will never forgot watching (not mentioning names) coming to me in tears because of their drinking problems... I never wanted to grow up like that. I play sports too, and Drugs and Alcohol, well, that'd ruin everything I have going for me.

Point of view: I think every one should Join Straight Edge, really. Maybe not every one, but it really is a great thing. It helps you keep your life on track. People have to make their own choices in life, however... that is understandable... And if they choose not to be a member, I still respect them.

Favorite Bands: My Chemical Romance, Suicide Machines, Brand New, F.O.B, System Of a Down, The Translations, Band Camp, Hawthorne Heights...

Any Advice for people debating on becoming sXe?: I say, do what your heart tells you. My heart told me never to drink or smoke, and so my heart I follow. If you really want to watch your life go down the drain, then don't become a member. I think you should, but that choice is up to you...

Glad To Be A Member! XD!

Age: 17

Location: oklahoma

How long have you been sXe?:well i guess forever.. i haven't ever done drugs or anything.. but. i officially stopped drinking pop about 3.. ish years ago i guess.??

Why did you become sXe?: cuz i'm a health nut.

Point of view: sXe kids are hardcore. it takes a lot to be as hardcore as some kids are.. and it's way admirable.

Favorite Bands: FFTL, 90lb wuss, underOATH, emery, Roma Secrets, norma jean... there's lots more.. im an emo kid.. with a bit of a punk rock flare... and hardcore .. alllllll rolled into one.

Any Advice for people debating on becoming sXe?: do it.. you have more energy and you'll more than likely live a better life, without lots of added stress.. plus its healthy and goes against a lot of what people think life todayshould be.. it kinda proves to people that the big parties and whatnot arent a big thing and they aren't neccesary to have a happy and not to mention absolutely face meltin life..

There's an artist, Nathalia Edenmont, who kills cats, mice, doves, RABBITS, and other animals, mutilates their bodies, and then takes their photographs. She's on exhibit, among other places, at the Wetterling Gallery in Sweden. She has taken the top halves of five white mice and made them into finger puppets. She beat a cat to death with a stick. And this is called art. This is not only inhumane, but morally reprehensible.

i think i may have to leave the community.

straight edge is such a trend right now and i feel like people (not neccessarily in this community) look at me like im walking advertisement for this trend that will hopefully pass. straightedge used to be something to be proud of and it was rare and it was something so unlike other's lifestyles. but not its such a trend with the belt buckeles and the sweatshirts and the clothing and all this shit. so i think im out, thanks peeps. its been real.

How long have you been sXe?: 9 months
Why did you become sXe?: I've seen drug fuck up some of my closest friends. One died, five overdosed at various times in school, ones made it into rehab only to come out after her meetings and huff glade. I've just never wanted to be like that.

Age:14 ( 15 in march)

Location: Florida

How long have you been sXe?: a couple of years now

Why did you become sXe?: Because I've seen what it does to people and its not good to be involved in. I've seen a friend laying half dead on the side of the road because of drugs and it scares me and yeah.

Point of view: i dont hate you for doing drugs you just dont need them to have fun

Favorite Bands: Spitvalves, Anti-Flag, The Casualties, Five Iron Frenzy, Pennywise, GBH, Misfits, Less Than jake, Catch 22, Mad Caddies i think i'll stop now haha

Any Advice for people debating on becoming sXe?: its not for everyone. its hard to be commited to the edge unless you really want to so think before you become straight edge. But its a good idea i guarantee you'll live longer. haha
