Non-drinking thread
« on: November 11, 2005, 12:12:01 PM »
Yeah, I'm feeling lonely, so I decided to start a thread about non-drinking.
Are there any non-drinking people?

I don't drink. Or smoke. Silly habits, those.

I'm not suppose to drink, but I have had a few drinks when it's a special occasion.

(Last time was March when I was with Grim, Alarielle, Andyr, Seifer and my friend Ceza in Scotland. ;) )

I don't drink anything that has even a drop of alcohol. Also no smoking, coffee and such stuff. Never did.

I haven't drank since I wrecked my car, but that's out of circumstance, not personal policy.  Nowadays everything is a sin and causes cancer, so that doesn't account for much in my book anymore.

I drink very rarely and very small amounts of alcohol, because I like being sober and I dislike being drunk.
I dislike the company of drunk people.

I don't drink much, but I like drinking. I also like smoking, eating, shagging... anything that's fun :)

i used to enjoy a drink on occasion... i was always a one drink wonder though.  when i was in school, my friends used to think it was hilarious to get me drunk.  now i have no tolerance for alcohol at all.   i skip the buzz and go straight to the hangover, and i get sick as a dog, so its just not worth it any more.

I don't drink, smoke or indulge in any indecent activities, but I am, admittedly, a filthy liar.

I don't believe you.

And I don't drink. It bores me. Drunk people are not much fun to be round sober either.

Also, Evaine, practice makes perfect!

Hmm...
I started this thread mainly because I wanted to ask people who don't drink about how the fact that most of people drink influences their lives.

I don't know how about others, but I strongly dislike the company of drunk persons.
My feelings vary from disgust towards those who are under slight influence of alcohol to homicidal hatred towards those who are really drunk.

The problem is that today society forces people to be in company of people that they don't want to see...

For example when I was in second class of secondary school I had to go to a camp with rest of my class, because some of lessons were on the camp, so I had to go to go to that damned camp to go to the next class.
Of course everyone except me and one girl were drinking heavily (yeah teachers too).

I left that school and since that camp I avoid all school camps and tours.

This situation is annoying me because I don't know why, vast mayority of young people in my country tries to get drunk as soon as they are out of parent's control...
