Drinking, or lack thereof.

A topic that's been coming up in my life recently...

When I turned 21, I could legally drink.

When I told everyone "nah, not into alcohol". They were taken aback.

Is "having a good time" synonymous with getting drunk? Where did this start? Now don't get me wrong... I have no problem with people who drink socially, I just choose not to. But apparently, that makes me prudish.

I just don't care for the stuff...

    just drink what you like if it contains alcohol or not that's up to you it is your life so you should decide about something like that.
    I also heard a tip from someone who didn't want to drink he just put his drink in a bear a wine glass so it the glass fits in and no one notice it

    Even if you're not drinking, it's best to pretend you are. Just get something that looks alcoholic. People will pressure you to drink and you'll look awkward if you keep saying no (at least, that's how it is in my experience as another drinking-age person). Then they'll start throwing random stuff your way if you mention that alcoholic beverages are not delicious to you. You could probably just get a Cola or something.

    I abhore drinking, but won't stop someone from doing it unless it's going to harm them/others. I understand your sentiment, but don't let them get to you. Just tell them all the nasty facts of alcohol while they drink. xD

    I drink socially, but that's only because I want to. I don't need it to have fun, it's just there to do.

    You always have the choice to not do it, and you should be respected for your personal opinion.

    If your friends care that much whether you're drinking or not, they might not be the best of friends. I drink (because I like it; lots of different drinks taste good!) but a bunch of my best friends don't. And that's cool! Nobody seems to really care, at least where I am.

    Do what makes you happy.

    They don't care so much to the point where it's "LOL WHAT A DORK", but it just shocks people when they find it out about me. And it's an almost universal response (thus far)!
