“There was this embarrassing make out session I had with this guy. I only regretted it because his friends dared him to make out with me.”
“Drank too much and got tipsy in front of respected people.”
The ProjectKnow survey here reports that many Spring Breakers regret their alcohol-fueled activities. They surveyed 889 former high school and college students who traveled on spring break in the last five years to learn more about their experience firsthand, asking about their biggest regrets, the amount of alcohol they consumed, and the kinds of sexual activities they participated in while away.
38 percent reported that they felt bad about their alcohol consumption, while 32 percent are upset they had sex. Eleven percent also expressed remorse for drug use. The survey also found that of those who had sex on Spring Break, 65 percent of men did it with someone they just met, and 42 percent of women did the same. The rest reported it was sex with a friend. Nearly half of both men and women who had sex during Spring Break — 40 percent — reported that they did not use protection, even as the Centers for Disease Control reports STD rates among young people are growing exponentially.
“Our survey confirmed that heavy drinking and drug use are still quite prevalent among spring breakers; however, there is serious regret associated with these activities,” Meg Piedmont, a spokesperson on behalf of Project Know, told The College Fix via email.
Sin never satisfies in the long term, but always brings regret. Everyone of us in this fallen world - without exception - has regrets for things we have done. Regret though can lead to genuine repentance, thereby freeing us. Or it merely leads to worldly sorrow and ultimately to death.
For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death (2 Cor 7:10)
