I don't drink, period. Peer pressure doesn't work on me. I've seen family members get to the point of embarrassing themselves just to do it again later. It's not for me.

People who drink and go crazy and do stupid shit piss me off. I don't like my fiances friends because they ditch him when he gets too wasted and I'm always the one there for him. Yet he always still goes to see them.

I don't drink very often, I'm not fond of a drink that will kill my liver.

Drinking is so important that in the past i had to choose between a weeks worth of groceries or beer. So I went to the store bought three packs of hotdogs the ones on sale for a lil less than a dollar and a box of ramen and the rest went to beer. So the whole week all i had to eat was hotdog and ramen.


That's just good sense. Hotdogs and ramen can get you a long way (like through 4 years of college). Although I can put away beer like nobody's business, so if I were in a money crunch I'd buy big bottle of tequila as it is more cost-effective.
Did you know that beer was invented before bread, and it's a better way to store carbohydrates. It's also more delicious and it gets you drunk. Yay beer!

It's not important at all. I would not be friends with someone who tried to shame me for my beverage (unless I plan on drinking & driving). Other than that though, who cares?

Alcohol has never been a must for me, but if I drink and my companions do too; then it becomes a great social party. I am not saying it is a must to drink in order to have fun, but that's what happens to us all the times. Nothing but laughs and smiles. Sometimes I even take my brother with me and he does not drink at all yet he still has fun. It really depends on the person. It does not make me an alcoholic, but if I enjoy a good beer, then why not? I spotted Sapporo last weekend and just reminded me of my buddies back in NYC. Started drinking one, and it just did not feel the same without that group of jackasses

Cheers to friendship!

Also, if people feel you need to drink in order to be friends; then I suggest that is not true friendship.

It isn't important to me, but I'd say it is severely limiting being at this age. My social health may not be as great as others because of it, but I saw plenty of benefits from not going crazy on Friday nights when I was in college. I just don't like the taste of it and I don't like being out of control. I've seen what it gets people and drinking to fit in with others is not a positive to drinking. It is a sign of other issues and seeing as how most people see drinking as a stress reliever I think they'd acknowledge that as well if they were honest.

Nope never has, never will be xD
I've never had a drink in my life, but the whole alcholic drinks thing disinterests me upfront. Dunno why, just never been appealing to me ahahah

I don't see why people would judge you based of the fact you don't though, I've never been judged for it, so that's kind of odd, guess you're living around weird people xD

I love mixing drinks, I plan to be a bartender in the future.

I'm also a happy drunk so I usually have a pretty great time when I do some serious drinking. At least until the next morning, hahah.
Typically though I'm pretty moderate, I might have the occasional black russian or beer when I'm home gaming or watching anime or something, and most times at conventions or parties I'll drink enough to get a buzz, maybe a bit more. I've only been wasted a few times really.

But as a side note, alcohol tends to magnify whatever emotions you're feeling at the time, so if you're trying to drink your sorrows away, I'm sorry but you're doing things very wrong my friend. I only drink when I'm bored and I'm tying to make my gaming a bit more interesting or when I'm in a good mood and/or partying. I lost my car keys at a convention one time and as pissed as I was about that, what pissed me off almost just as much was that because of that, I wasn't gonna let myself drink because I'd just be an angry, miserable mess. Needless to say when I found my keys, I got my booze on hard and had a great night. :D

(If you wanna get effed up though play the Starship Troopers drinking game. dude. just. dude.)

Not really.

I have friends that drink and friends who don't.

I don't necessarily force what I like to other people, on the other hand, if my friends don't like simply because I don't drink as much as they do, then I guess its their lost. I can find friends easily!
