I'm just curious. How many other people don't drink? Every time it's discussed on funnyjunk, to my knowledge, everyone seems like they're super-cool and social drinkers.

I don't drink. I'm a sophomore in college, but when I turn 21, I still don't plan to drink. I think I can have a good time with friends without being inhibited.

I only drink when I'm around friends. So yeah, I don't drink.

Oh, you think sobriety is your ally. But you merely adopted it; I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn't see the alcohol until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but BORING!

Just kidding, I have a liver problem :(

I don't as I feel it makes you stupid, and do stupid things. And I'm stupid enough already.

I only have one drink at the pub for big social gatherings, (birthdays, weddings, new years). But don't drink enough to become tipsy, let alone wasted. Just don't see the point in it.

I'm 18 (I can buy alkohol in Sweden), but I don't drink. Mainly because I don't like the taste, but also because I train very much and you can't train with alkohol in your body and it's generally unhealthy.

You should try it a couple of times first, you might be surprised.

I don't. I've just never been that interested in it.

I hardly ever drink. I have friends who drink and play a lot of drinking games. I joined them like 2 times total. I don't find drinking that fun. I don't do any sort of drugs. I think it's all about being in the right group of people. I play soccer and tennis for my school and will in college so I can't be smoking or doing anything crazy. 18 and senior in high school by the way.

Difference going out with friends to a bar or restaurant and having a beer or two, or even a rum & coke, etc. Then there's drinking to get **** faced and i don't like that. I find it stupid.

Don't you feel like you want to explore the way certain chemicals can completely change the way your mind works? I can understand not drinking, but for me, drugs are just far too interesting not to investigate.

Junior in highschool. I'm like, one of the few Juniors that are straightedge. I like to get my rush elsewhere.

I plan on going in the Marines, and might take up drinking after I get out.

Oh, yea, and I get addicted to things really easily, and I'm afraid it might turn onto a serious problem.

I'm pretty much in your exact same situation, although I'm considering the Air Force or a university instead of the Marines.

That's cool.I wouldn't drink if i wouldn't have my friends...and alcohol is too expensive anyways. just the occasional bottle of something nice and yummy.
User avatar #34 to #7 - tekoronia (01/13/2013) [-]
I don't drink. I turn 18 next month, so then I'm technically allowed to.. I don't have any reason to drink though, so I don't know if I'll start any time soon.

I'm Irish, and for Irish blood to function it needs to be 1% alcohol.

I am 21 and I don't drink. I did a few shots on my birthday and didn't enjoy it. I had a beer the other day too and it was disgusting.

Why were you thumbed down? Thumbed up to correct injustice, and I'm with you on the beer, tastes like AIDS. I like some booze though.

I drink on occasion particularly on weekends. I tend to be shy at social gatherings but after a few drinks I shed the overlay while maintaining who I am and my intelligence/mentality. Also I never allow myself to get "plastered" seeing how it serves no purpose or is appealing to me in any way.

Thank you for your input. And to all the people below (who may never read this). I used to think drinking was a horrible thing, but then I got to know a few drinkers. Now they are my friends. I still don't want to drink at all, but that's my thing. And drinking is their thing.

I feel much more relaxed to know that good people can be drinkers, too. One does not affect the other.

It's primarly the social personification of assholes and alcoholics that give drinking a bad name overall. My best frinds' dad is one and is just an idiot with multiple DUI's and just doesn't understand the concept of not drinking in the least. If you don't want to drink that is your choice and I commend you on your decision and understanding of us, I dare say "socialite's". Lol

I usually drink a glass or two of wine most nights.. but I enjoy a nice party once in a while, but tend not to drink all that much, because I'm what you'd call "a sexual predator drunk" and that's gotten me into trouble with a lot of mystery men. The majority of the time I end up DD-ing for friends, though.

i usually drink responsibly...i end up taking peopel home. left a party early and had a STRONG chance of getting laid.... meh

but if i dont have to drive, or its a competition (drank 15 in 30 min once...if we lsot we had to cheack ice fishing poles butt neckid in -20 weatehr) or im depressed.. i will drink a lot.

i also smoke weed about 3 times a week and have bene known to down 2 bottles of robitussen once or 5 times.
User avatar #21 to #7 - taxation (01/13/2013) [-]
I don't drink regularly, mainly because I am underage so there's a chance of getting caught. If there's basically a guarantee that **** will NOT hit the fan though, sure I'm down for a couple shots on occasion. Same for weed, I smoke when it's completely safe to, but to put the frequency of that in perspective I've made an eighth last two months. Addressing the rest though, I'm neither super-cool nor particularly social. I just drink when it's relatively risk-free, and then only in a group, making it pretty damn rare.

Other than the occasional glass of wine with dinner, I really don't drink often. Last time I drank hard alcohol was in August, and I typically get drunk maybe 4-5 times a year, if that. I still go out, but I'm usually the DD because my friends seem to think that being DD means you can be tipsy and still drive.
User avatar #19 to #7 - EdwardNigma (01/13/2013) [-]
I don't either. Mainly because it's illegal at my age but even when I am old enough, I don't really plan to or want to. My sister and cousins constantly say "Try some of this you'll like it" even though they know every time they've ever offered me alcohol, I don't want to drink it. Why they persist is beyond me. Even after saying "No" they still try. It's so ******* annoying.

And this is all coming from an Australian with Irish and Scottish heritage.

I don't, but it's not a moral thing really. I don't like the idea of making myself less able to judge situations. Also, my family has a long history of alcoholism, and I become addicted to things very easily, so I don't want to deal with that, honestly. I love red wine, though. It just tastes so good.

I have no desire to drink, except maybe cider cos that stuff is great
#14 to #7 - anon (01/13/2013) [-]
I agree, I don't drink either but I get questioned a lot about it when I refuse a drink at a party, my friends don't try to force me to and accept that I don't, but others are a lot like 'whoaa really? but everyone does it!'
User avatar #11 to #7 - thrashtilldeath (01/13/2013) [-]
I don't drink, and I don't plan to drink.
User avatar #8 to #7 - rubikzcubesolver (01/13/2013) [-]
I do not. I smoke weed and write poetry and **** , but I do not do either with friends,

Just kidding, I have no friends.
User avatar #9 to #8 - guitarguise (01/13/2013) [-]
Ahh I see. Sorry about that man. I don't smoke pot either though.
User avatar #10 to #9 - rubikzcubesolver (01/13/2013) [-]
