You need to hang out with better people. I hang out with several social groups, whose drinking ranges from light social to getting rekt, but there is one person in each social group who doesn't drink, for different reasons. We smile at them, nod, and say "you do what makes you happy."
Do not shame people who don't drink, especially if they're not shaming you for drinking around them.
Just got drunk my first time tonight, I'm 18 and I hated it
@Sadist, that's just because your body isn't capable of enjoying alcohol until its 7665th day out of the womb
@Salt Lake Jazz, tell that to the Germans, the French, the Canadians, Russians, Italians, Spanish, Brazilian, Japanese, Dutch, among many others
@Salt Lake Jazz, he probably lives in a country with the legal age at 18
@Salt Lake Jazz, 7680, gotta account for them leap years
You also get told that you don't know how to have fun.
Actually, I think its sad the only way YOU know how to have fun is by altering yourself.
@Animalium, Is that common? I've never heard of people telling others they're not fun because they don't drink
@Animalium, I had to give up drinking for a couple months and parties are definitely a lot less fun
@18bluecat, I've heard it several times
@Animalium, who says people drink because it's the ONLY way they can have fun? Sometimes people just enjoy a few drinks, don't act so high and mighty just because you choose not to drink, it's just as bad as people saying you can't have fun because you don't drink
@Daynste, I was replying to the guy who said parties were a lot less fun. So he's a pretty good example.
Why dont you get off your high horse because you do drink?
@Animalium, lol I'm not on a high horse. I'm pointing out that you're being hypocritical
@Daynste, do you even know what hypocritical means? Because nothing I said is the definition on hypocritical. All I'm talking about is how if you don't drink you dont know how to have fun and I've actually been told that several times.
@Animalium, "I hate when people tell me I can't have fun because I don't drink, but if you drink it's because you don't know how to have fun without it" that's hypocritical
@Daynste, except I never said that
@Animalium, I was paraphrasing but that was clearly the gist of what you were saying
I don't drink.. never have never will.. because i don't like any alcohol
Every fu**ing time...
You dont drink?! :-0
@Don Quixote Corazon, Nope. Never has. Not because I'm trying to pretend that I have higher moral standards than everybody else. Things that I've seen and experienced during my life has made me fu**ing terrified of alcohol. But I have no problem with people who like to take a beer (or whatever). It's about making choises YOU are comfortable with, not to please anyone else.
@Rapunzel, totally agree. I'm 19 (20 in a few weeks) and I dont drink cuz it's illegal (and I'm religious). I respect people who drink as long as they respect me for choosing not to drink. I even choose not to drink when I'm out of the country (like I currently am)
@Rapunzel, I've seen many lives/families destroyed by alcohol.... None for me thanks!
@Rapunzel, Nothing wrong with a casual beer when out with friends or at a party, but I don’t find enjoyment in drinking till the point I black out. When I’m drunk I just laugh a lot and get tired quickly, but I’ve seen people go from crying about things to simply getting angry over nothing
@Rapunzel, I am basically scared of losing control over my body. That's why I never want to deal with drugs or alcohol. That might sound like a dumb reason, but that's my thought on it.
I mean I even turn medication down that would do this.
@efil ym kcvF, That is not a dumb reason, I think it sounds very logical. The important thing is to do what feels best for you, not do stuff just because "everybody else does it". THAT is a really dumb reason.
I'm only 18, but I don't think that I'm ever going to drink. Not for any moral reason, just because of the fact that every time I drink a bottle of water, I drain it in 30 seconds, then drink another one.
