When people throw cigarette butts on the ground, is that considered littering? I see them on the ground almost everywhere I go, and I see people throw them out on the street while driving all the time I asked a police officer once, and he said that it is considered littering. However, I have a feeling he would tell me that regardless of whether or not he knew for sure.

As far as we know that would technically be considered littering, I mean, you are throwing your trash on the ground. Cigarette butts also take a while to biodegrade.

I think that cops just don’t really say anything about it because so many people do it. However if we all throw our cigarette butts on the ground we could possibly end up with a massive problem. So whenever you can, try not to litter.

I have a girlfriend, but I am in love with another girl. I made a promise to myself that I would never leave one girl for another girl. There has to be more of a reason.

The girl I am in love with wants me to prove to her that I love her. She wants me to go to her house and fool around. What do I do?

What up playa?

OK, you have made an unrealistic promise to yourself. Sometimes things change. If you feel as though you love this girl, why would you let something as simple as a promise that you made to yourself stop you?

Tell the girl that you are with now, what is going on; she will break up with you, if you want to do it that way. Good Luck!

My life seems to be going down hill these days.

I’m in the 11th grade, and I don’t really go to school at all. I’m probably going to fail all my classes. I like about 2 people at my school. My car and bike were stolen. I used to smoke weed a while back, and now since I have nothing else to do that is all I do now.

It seems like the only thing that ever kept me on track was a girlfriend, and I haven’t had one of those for almost a year. It just seems like when it comes to girls I’m always shy, and don’t like to say much. I’m scared to make the first move and I don’t know what to do. I can never really tell if they’re interested, and I have a big fear of rejection. I don’t really know what to do these days.

Also I wanted to know if it’s bad to do drugs because you think it will help your problems. I like to just put them in the back of my head and weed helps that a lot. Help please. Thank you.

I am sorry that things are so rough for you right now. It sounds like most of the things that you are dealing with are normal teenager things. There comes a time in a teenager’s life when the world starts to hit them. You are becoming an adult and those are all things that you have to work through in order to feel like a successful one.

You need to get back in school or you are going to live the rest of your life flipping burgers at McDonald’s. Everyone knows that is not a career goal. As far as weed goes, personally I don’t think there is anything horrible about it. I don’t think that you should use it to drown your problems away however. The longer you put off dealing with a problem the longer it lasts, and it could possibly become and even greater problem. Most drugs are addicting. Marijuana has no physically addicting aspects, it is completely mental. So don’t be weak and become addicted. Moderation is the key when it comes to any drug.

Last but not least, GIRLS . . . they are weird. Being rejected sucks a lot, but just remember that if they reject you then they are not worth your time, move on and don’t take it personally.

As for not being able to stay on track without a girlfriend, it is time to get over that. A girl isn’t going to want you if you are on the wrong track. So get on the right one for yourself and then a girl will soon follow.

I hope everything gets better.
