    I find that to be very much like me, immediately after hearing about what straightedge was about three years ago I was more than happy to take up that title. I had already met all the requirements, and to me drug use is extremely ignorant and I have never had any attraction to it. I only hope that everyone can learn our views if they haven’t already. ♥ Miki DaVelle (singer of Muziq After Dark)

    This is awesome. Dave has amazing views. I myself are neither Vegan or SxE( i drink very infrequently but dont do drugs or smoke) but he has such down to earth opinions. I love him ! I would love to see Jade Puget to a testomonial on why he is straight edge as well.

    I love the fact that more and more kids are learning that it’s okay NOT to follow their peers into drugs/alcohol. That the kids today have people like Davey Havok to look up to. I encourage my nephews to follow people like Davey and others that live drug free. We all need more people like that!

    Whilst I haven’t claimed straight edge I have been drug free for around 4 years now (as well as a vegetarian for at least 6 years).
    I have been a huge AFI fan for 10 years now and it’s so refreshing to find other people, such as Davey Havok, that aren’t afraid to break the mould and go against what is seen as the ‘norm’.
    Too many people try drugs because they feel it was it what you’re ‘supposed’ to do or in order to fit in.

    I was thrilled to hear about the Straight Edge movement and that it actually does exist because for the longest time I’ve always been the ‘strange’ one to all my peers and friends alike. Growing up, I would hear kids say “I can’t wait to be old enough to drink…” and I would be so confused about that statement thinking to myself that I, instead, couldn’t wait to be old enough to drive a car!
    I’ve seen kids getting into their ‘drinking dream’, but then eventually they got into drugs as well. I’ve lost loved ones to that and I can’t believe that people still haven’t learned that it’s just bad for you.
    Now, I’M the one who looks at substance abusers or those who just love to get drunk as ‘strange’ while I became someone who’s smart and one of the many to look up to.
    Much respect for Davey who always tries to influence others about being Straight Edge ♥x♥

    I’m a straight edge for all my life. And I do love “hard” music. I didn’t understand why it’s going with drugs and alcohol. It’s not funny to see how your fav mucisians dectroy themselves and end in a very, very unhappy way, cause their music becomes huge part of you. The first time I opened music and outlook of AFI and, of course, Davey Havok I couldn’t dream that he’s a sXe as well. The way he looks was so strange) But than I found info and I was shoked actually.
    20 years of beeing sXe and rock-star at the same time. It’s amazing! He proved and continues doing the same that you can be successful musician and live your own way, that all cliches are just nothing and there’s nothing that can compare of beeing yourself.
    I respect him so much as a human for beeing strong enough to break cliches and make a good example for all his fans.

    He was the person who inspired me to say – Hey! I’m soo proud to be a part of it.

    I think there’s a right way and a wrong way to do drugs. I think it’s wrong to smoke and drink if your doing it because your part of a movement. I smoke pot and drink alcohol because it’s fun to do. I’ve never drink by myself and I rarely ever smoke by myself. It’s always with my friends, and I do it because it’s fun to do. I never use it to solve problems or to solve depression or anything like that. I think as long as your safe with it that it’s fine to do drugs. I agree and respect Davey’s views. He chose to be straight edge because it’s what he wants to do. I choose to do drugs because it’s what I want to do. It’s all about being an individual that thinking and acting for yourself.
