    I know Koolo doesn't, but that's probably due to religious reasons. Anyone here who doesn't drink alcohol simply because you don't like it, don't need it, don't want it?

    Honestly, I hate it but lately been forcing myself to drink out of peer pressure and social expectations. I don't feel like forcing myself anymore to do stuff I don't like, but it's not easy being in some social situations where alcohol consumption is customary. Anyone here know what it's like? How do you deal with it? How's your social life?

    I can respect that, but religion is a strong motivation not to drink so you're not under the same will power issues as someone who just decided not to because he doesn't feel like it.

    you don't have to be completely plastered in social situations anyway you can just have a beer it won't do anything to you

    Even if you're somewhere where everyone's drinking and you're "expected" to drink you can honestly just not drink I've never seen anyone peer pressure someone to drink outside of american teen movies

    I'm not really a fan of alcohol cuz there's a lot of alcoholics in my family, I'll drink it but don't care to get drunk or anything.

    I don't drink. No reason just don't like it.

    Gets a bit annoying turning down drinks over & over again but other than that it is fine. Can be funny seeing friends make a fool of themselves sometimes lol.

    Coz I did a lot of drugs and did 2 much acid and f----- myself up, when I was doin drugs the only alcohol I drank was a glass of beer or a shared bottle of wine. I hated being drunk, it just wasn't my kind of high. Strangely dislike the weed high as well. I needa be zooted. Alcohol just seems kinda trashy and I find it stupid how accepted it is everywhere. Plus I'm a bit of a paranoid person so I like to be able to recognise ppl and my surroundings in case there's opps

    Social life has been fine, I don't party anymore though coz I'm not interested in it and I'm not single which probably is a big factor also. If you can only have a good time with alcohol or socialize through it that's just sad

    When you say you did a lot of drugs, is it like Mitch Hedberg's "I used to do drugs, I still do, but I used to too", or you're completely sober now?

    I got very good at blacking out when I was younger to cope with some formerly unadressed issues. I'll have a beer now and then, but I gave up getting drunk years ago for the most part. It's really not conducive to my mental health.

    I dont drink, personal decision, just because I know a lot of f----- up s--- thats happened to people when drunk. I also think its unattractive when people get shitfaced. Its easy to deal, I agree with mikey though that it gets annoying being asked all the time. Social life is fine, I dont go to parties or hang out with people who are drunk or on drugs though. If my wife asks me to try something Ill taste it.
