Brian claims to have invented this word (when he wrote the homonymous song together with Dave). He says when he was 15 and was playing punk shows everyone around him was drinking but he simply wasn't allowed to because of his age so he'd always ask for a Coke. Therefore he was sXe but had no choice. He was sXe until somewhere around '86 or '87. He said that the second lead singer from Dag Nasty used to smoke a lot of pot, and he eventually experimented with it. He also said something like "I can't argue that putting shit in your body is better for you, but I'm a grown man and if I want to get drunk in my room and lie in my bed crying, then it's my decision." In an interview in Britain in 1995, Greg claimed that he had never been drunk in his life. In 1996 some fans claimed to have seen him drunk at the backstage.
