Lilly explains why she chose not to drink on the trip and what she thinks of MJ's pill popping.

MJ’s friend Sammy is trying to get me to drink from the moment we arrive. He is visibly angered by the fact that I don’t drink alcohol. Alcohol is an addictive drug, just because it is legal doesn’t make it safe. Granted in moderation it is not dangerous, but hundreds of thousands of people die every year in the U.S .from alcohol poisoning, liver/kidney disease, or as a result of a drunk driver. I personally have lost extended family members due to drunk drivers, and I have had a friend die in his sleep due to asphyxiation from his own vomit after only three drinks.

I don’t like alcohol, I don’t drink alcohol, and I don’t want it to be forced upon me. I have zero problem with people around me drinking (as long as they don’t drive and endanger innocent lives), but for me personally, I’ll pass.

We arrive to the room and we have the most beautiful suite! We each have private sleeping quarters, but we also have a gorgeous common area, it’s perfect. Mike totally hooked us up! I co-own a line of women’s Swimwear called Have Faith Swimgerie, so I decide to bring each of the girls a gift from my line to start the trip off on a loving note. I realize MJ doesn’t like me, but I don’t want her to feel left out, so I bring her a red tunic that I think will look beautiful on her (and it does!).
