RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

suspended for 4 weeks

yup...so i was in class and my friend asked me to count how many cigs he had left..so i did and the teacher thought i was playing with a phone or something so he freaked out and turned up my desk and they went flying out. now in any normal situation i would say they were his but his dad hits him and my dad isnt around anymore so i sucked it up and said they were mine (i would of made a story but it wouldnt of changed anything) so now im suspended for four days (any where between 4 days and 3 weeks...im hoping for the latter)

pros: no school for 4 days-3 weeks, and when i was going to the office they decided to like grab me and the entire time i was yelling immigration in spanish (inside joke).

cons: im going to get bitched at by my mom and i have to go to a tobacco seminar twice a week.

These idiots are brainwashed into believing that every single law = invariably good. Smoking and drinking before the MAAAAAGICAL age of 18 will not kill you, ffs!

Smoking kills you slowly no matter what age you start, though. But anyway...

Re: suspended for 4 weeks

I think that the harmful effects of smoking is partly anti-smoking propaganda. Smoking kills some people, but it doesn't kill others.

Re: suspended for 4 weeks

Just 'cause it doesn't kill you doesn't make it good for you either... My parents smoke, they are still alive, but they cough a lot.

Re: suspended for 4 weeks

Well, I just say it because I don't know the chemistry of cigarettes, I don't know if it's good or bad for you or what.

It limits your ability to run distances, but I wouldn't say 'never'.

Re: suspended for 4 weeks

Yeah, cigarettes are bad for you, but their effect on the body is often grossly exaggerated. But it has it's good effects. Makes you feel less stressed. Same with alcohol. Sex is just fucking awesome. Just be careful not to get STDs.

Re: suspended for 4 weeks

My friend isn't yet thirteen and he smokes. He's a nice guy too. It saddens me that he's shortening his lifespan.

Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
but I got him where I want him now...

Re: suspended for 4 weeks

Cigs don't necessarily shorten your life span. There are 90 year old smokers...

Re: suspended for 4 weeks

I don't see grounds for being attacked, all I said was that I'm not a scientist so I can't claim whether or not cigarettes shorten lives. The fact is that some people smoke all their lives and don't die.

Re: suspended for 4 weeks

i know its not good for you but i hate when people nag me to quit. i know its not good for me but ill quit when i feel like it, i dont need someone bitching at me about how bad it is. ive been smoking for almost 2 years and it really hasnt effected me that much at all the only difference is the way i smell honestly.

Axe does wonders.










You'll get used to the strong smell of the combo =P



( no I don't smoke, but the bathrooms at my school smell horrible with the stuff, and I'm come out smelling pretty badly)

I think we got a bit distracted with the smoking debate, what I admire is that you took the blame on yourself to help your friend.

I think school should encourage loyalty and solidarity, not punish people for it.

Don't take life so seriously, it isn't permanent.
