This is a question that has been bugging me for a while. Why do people look at me like I am a freak if i tell them i don't drink alcohol (I am 23, so I am over the required minimum age)? People even try to push me into drinking, it's absurd! So here's the question: do you or don't you drink alcohol? If so why do you, if not why don't you? What reactions do you get if you tell people you don't drink? Are you one of those people, if so why do you do that?

it's just normal for us here if we don't drink but then they just let me be if they drink...seriously don't get affected by this crab mentality..you're fit as it is and you don't need them to pull you down

I had just tasted it once frm my husband's glass and since then i hav never touched it again,just didnt like it.I often thought y do people drink it in the first place?It tastes aweful just burns ur throat up. I think its up to us to decide to drink or not to drink,just because someone is pushing u doesnt mean that we hav to get into it.If someone thinks u to be a freak for not drinking ,just let them be cause u know better than them right.

I drink ocassionaly, like maybe once a month. Its a personal choice. I dont find anything wrong with either drinking or not drinking. Its your life, your choice and your call. Do what you feel like doing, and not what people say.

I used to drink a long time ago. I quit when I had my child. He is now a grown man but I still don't drink. I went to my Christmas party and was having a great time which I have all the time whether I am at a party or not. My boss came up to me later in the party and said that the people that were sitting at her table wanted to know what I was drinking. She told them nothing she is this way all the time. Even at work. I don't know why people think you have to drink to have fun. That is just plain silly.
