isn't this just the Straight Edge thing that was popular in the 90s? There's a whole subculture for it.



Straight Edge people don't use drugs or drink, and some abstain from sex. I've also met a few that would instead get their rush from fighting non-edge people. Just like the people in the article, basing your entire personality around abstinence makes a person a 1-dimensional asshole.

I'd say it can sometimes make you an asshole along many dimensions.
