I'm ugly and plump, I feel worthless and fear rejection.

Question:

I'm new in college and it's been a month and everyone looks so gorgeous and all the girls seem to be pairing up with guys and I know I'm not good looking like them so I've started smoking and drinking with a couple of them just to be part of their crowd, I know they talk about me behind my back and consider me lesser.

I'm so scared of rejection, I'm beginning to feel worthless!--
