Why Will Smith and Drugs Don't Mix



Inside Hollywood: In a recent  interview, 39-year-old Will Smith explained why he never took to recreational drugs: “Through my teenage years I was too focused on sex to even think about any other vices. I’m much the same now. No drugs and only the occasional drink.”

I’ve something in common with actor Will Smith:

It’s what  we have  done without —never done with.

He never had time to take drugs, he reflects,

Because all the time he was thinking of sex.

  • I see now why you have Jada Pinkett's back.

    Sex can, of course, cause VD and unplanned pregnancy (and an appearance on the Jerry Springer show), but isn't going to screw up someone as much as drugs will. For instance, there are reports about Bieber on drugs, and I believe that. I figure that drugs are the leading causes of early celebrity deaths. On the other hand, Betty White, Don Rickles, Carl Reiner, and Mel Brooks are still around.

  • Your infinitive in the first sentence is infinitely apt.

    What a foursome, and in brevity,
    For their talent and longevity.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Rereading your first verse using the word "thinking" and other sources about Will Smith "fantasizing about women," nothing wrong with that, and none of the evils I first mentioned.*

    Doing a search on this, the more amazing thing is that Will was able to avoid the drugs while most around him, including family members, were dealing drugs.

    On your latter point, that also reminds me about the talk about "will George Burns reach 100," then he did and that was it.

    *Some religious reading had something about it was wrong for Jimmy Carter to say that God would forgive him for lusting in his heart, but I didn't see the point. According to Dan Aykroyd, he lusted after Lainie Kazan and Shari Lewis, so I suppose today he is lusting after Sarah Silverman.

    Now that's breviloquent! (Thought I'd use it "at home" on my own blog first, but I can't resist here!)

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    Thanks, Margaret, for the good word.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Apparently such a good word that the Merriam-Webster dictionary says it is doing us a big favor by letting us see it, even though it is in the Premium Unabridged one.

    Although the word meant about what I thought.
