He makes excuses like, “the doctors tell me that if I knock it around hard enough, there is a good chance the brain tumor will shrink to the point where they won’t have to operate (Sedaris, p 368).” Also, he imagines conspiracies to eliminate his roommate; unluckily, he must cope with it because his roommate tries to find out his tics. As a result, Sedaris gets rid of his weird actions by smoking to be normal. It seems his roommate gave him an invisible power to overcome his nervous habits.

No teenager should be drinking alcohol; Grant does not want Crabbe to get addicted with the alcohol so he tries to put a stop at it. This is all summarized as a quotation in Crabbe, “Half way down the main hall he stopped and turned and said ““You’ve been drinking, haven’t you,
These endorphins create receptors and nerve cells in the brain. An addiction to a drug happens when a person didn’t have a comforting childhood and is in search for the comfort they never experienced.

However, these teenagers also live in fear of getting caught for drinking and thus, consume their alcohol in unsafe environments; typically, these dwellings are where they can “escape” disturbances and predicaments, but usually encounter more. These environments are generally unsupervised and in groups of “children” that are ignorant of responsible drinking habits. Due to their apprehension of being caught, teenagers tend to never confess to an adult of the troubles they encountered as they drank and, therefore, may further affect their experience.

They would also begin to drink in moderation since there is no longer the appeal of a “forbidden” rebellion.
