11 Reasons Drinking Water Is Better Than Doing Drugs

"But mom, I could be doing drugs..."

Emma Stinnette

We ALL know what it's like to compare our personal rebellions to what we could be doing- drugs.

1. Water + water + water = clear skin.

Admit it, when you're sipping on that water for a while, your skin is the most beautiful thing that you've ever seen. Drugs? Your face doesn't get any benefit.

2. You prevent yourself from saying anything stupid.

If you're constantly drinking that water, you don't have the opportunity to say something that you will regret, right? Doing drugs? Probably regrettable.

3. You're hydrated and not die-drated.

Drugs are dangerous. Water is not.

4. Water is legal.

I know this one was obvious... but just in case that it wasn't, it has been said. 8

5. Water is not sketchy.

You know what's inside of a perfectly good bottle of Aquafina. Drugs? Honestly, it's a mystery.

6. Water has never let you down.

Things that will let you down: men, drugs, (and possibly) fast food.

Things that will not let you down: tasty goodness of fresh WATER.

7. Water is good for your organs.

I'm not a health expert, but I can tell you that your organs LOVE water. Drink it all of the time. Make your organs happy. especially your liver, she needs a break! (if you know, you know).

8. You are eligible to get more tattoos.

Having healthy blood comes from drinking water. Healthy blood = tattoo city. And at the end of the day, getting a tattoo is way more exhilarating than doing drugs.

9. You pee constantly.

Now, I know this sounds like a downer, but if you're constantly peeing- just think of all of the things that you can get out of!

Person: Hey, can you move these heavy boxes?

You: Nope! Hydrate or diedrate! Gotta PEE for the 30th time today!

10. Water doesn't make your breath smell bad.

Enough said.

11. Water will not kill you, unless you drown.

Kind of morbid, but DRINKING water won't kill you. At least I hope not. Drugs on the other hand... you never know.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
