Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Wedimdoy, Octobfr 14, THE LETHBRIDGI HERALD 21 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm a 16-year old girl who didn't mean to turn on with drugs, in fact I'm considered an out- of-it sort of kid chicken, you might say. I did turn on in an innocent or stupid way, and now I know what drugs can do even to a person who isn't looking to freak out: My weight was getting out of hand so I went to a doc- tor. He gave me a diet and some pills to curb my ap- petite. I was supposed to take one pilUa day. Just to make sure I killed my appetite real dead I took an extra pill whenever I felt like it. When I ran out of pills I asked the doc for a refill. No problem. Pretty soon I found myself crying for no reason. Then I'd go into a depression and want to jump out the window. After a while I developed dizzy spells and felt like I was floating. Once when I was driving the car, my eyesight became blurred and I almost ran into a kid on a bike. I knew I was getting zonked on the pills but I was losing weight and getting whistled at for UK first time in my life, so I kept quiet. Then one day I hit a bummer. I went into a laughing jag, then a crying fit and finally I passed out. Lucky for me I was at home in my own room. When I came to, I thanked God for letting me live and I swore I'd never touch another pill ever. I Hushed all the pills down the toilet and vowed to diet with will power, not drugs. That was three months ago and today I feel like the luckiest girl alive. I owe it to the world 'to tell this story, so print it please and sign me Rabbit's Foot j DEAR R. F.: Thanks for your letter. There's a lesson to be learned from it. Pills are pills and they don't know what you're taking tlrem for.1 The chemical reaction is the same whether you're trying for a trip or hoping to curt your appetite. Benzedrine and (the most popular diet pills) are ahiphetamines. They can raise the blood pressure, louse up your menial machinery and lead to addiction. No teen-ager should take these pills unless he or she is suffering from a specific illness for which a doctor prescribes them. Confidential to Should I Risk It? Definitely not. Didn't you learn ANYTHING from your last two marriages? By the time this jerk learns the rules of the game he'll be too old to make the team. You need him like a giraffe needs tonsillitis. Forget it. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Do you know what happens when two virgins many? Well, I can tell you from experience. Nothing. I was brought up hi a very strict, highly religious atmo- sphere. I was sure my parents had adopted me because sex between THEM didn't seem possible. I was taught to sup- press all sexual urges because they were "the devil's work." When I had normal feelings of desire I became so ashamed of myself I would get physically ill. Naturally I married a young man whose family was friendly with my family a perfect gentleman impeccable morals, every mother's dream. Of course he had as much sex experience as I that is to say, none. Our honeymoon was a nightmare of frustration, disappointment and tears. There should be a law against two dumbbells like us getting married. Now, eight years and one child later, I feel absolutely nothing. My husband is impotent hah" the tune and when he isn't, I'm frigid. So much for our story. I hope from now on you won't put such a high priority or virginity. If at least one of us had had some experience, we wouldn't be so messed up today. Pulse Zero. DEAR ZERO: Sexual experience before marriage would not have helped you OR your husband. It's not what you two did not KNOW about sex that loused you up, but how you felt about it. Your description of parental influence, the feelings of guilt and shame everything adds up to conflicts that would make a healthy sexual relationship impossible. When children, are brought up to believe that sex is sinful and dirty, a few words by a clergyman will not magically transform the same act into something beautiful. You and your husband should have sought counselling BEFORE your marriage. You both knew what you didn't know and it would have made a great deal of sense to learn to- gettier. I assume from your letter that you aixf your husband are hi your early 30's. This is certainly not too late to discover joy and fulfillment of physical love in marriage. How far should a teen-age couple go? Can necking be safe? When does it become too hot to handle?
