When I try to start a new drawing I keep getting a previous drawing each time. It is the same drawing every time.
I agree with SolidTweaks, but another possibility is that someone saved a drawing with views in it as a drawing template instead of a drawing.
You may want to create a new drawing, delete the views, then save it as a new, or as the default drawing template.
Check if you by mistake replaced the default template for Drawings. Most likely that is the error.
