I hate shitfaced drunks, usually people who are trying to get as wasted as possible, usually college students and people trying to escape their problems. Buzzed casual drinker I have no problems with and love to hang out with. I'll probably have 3-4 beers and be buzzed, but no more until it been a couple hours or that is it. I also live in Japan, I love the selection and the ability to drink in public. I hardly ever drank Alcohol until I came to this country.

I hate alcohol too, I mean I never got drunk before but I have tasted it and it taste terrible to me. also whatever buzz you get i don't think is worth it because a lot of people do stupid things and don't remember it and then the hangovers. Also alcohol a lot of times won't make you feel better, most of the time if you're angry when you drink you are an angry drunk, or if you're depressed then you're a sad drunk. This is just from what I've seen from other people who drink a lot and from what I've read.

I don't like the taste of alcohol, I've tried many a so called fruity, sugary drinks. It's like people's right of passage, when they find out I don't drink, to make me try this drink they swear up and down is good.

I don't hate alcohol, I would drink if it tasted good and of course everything in moderation. I do however dislike the "get wasted culture" that stems from alcohol and the barrier it has created socially between me and people of my age group. The invites use to roll in before drinking was the thing to do.

so far i really dont like hard liquor. i had around 15 shots of it and some beers one night while in Colombia(drinking age is 18). first time drinking hard liquor too and first time i ever got drunk. my tolerance is crazy and my friends call me the warrior. -_- .

so i barely got drunk but my mind and thoughts process felt normal but my vision was weird. i could not focus on a specific object, it will like move by itself so weird.

the next morning i was totally fine and remembered everything in detail. but... hard liquor leaves this weird empty feeling in the stomach for me and it lasted days. so uncomfortable. i like beer tho. its fun to drink with friends or family. it sets a tone and mood. hard to explain. just kinda brings us closer together in this experience of life. i still can't get drunk from beers tho. takes me like 5 bottles to even feel a bit tipsy.

but for those that do drink or want to at least try it once. just control yourself . nothing wrong with getting wasted but not if you realize you cause way to much problems while wasted . drinking to much can tear friends and family and your life apart. but of course that's only if you drink too MUCH. just be safe and enjoy life and experience things. but don't drink and drive no matter what.

I also hate alcohol. No matter what I've tried (beer, wine, etc.) it all tastes nasty to me.

I wouldn't be surprised if the West looks somewhat shamefully on enjoyment of alcohol - especially in the U.S., where crazy Baptists still say teetotaling is the word of God. Not to say that getting stupid drunk isn't universally shameful, but of late we like virtue signaling, and the anti-alcohol crowd easily intersects with that. Or perhaps, more foundationally, we are adept at judging each other for every possible thing: you'll actually find some of the more intellectual American protestants succumbing to the reverse judgment, mocking Baptists for not drinking.

Anyway, I find a few drinks nice because my mind is constantly in overdrive, and that makes it easier to calm down. I'm like, "Wow, suddenly I don't care so much that I can't come up with a reasonable theory of how responsible a person is for the actions of the politicians they voted for."

So I guess the question I'm posing here is this: how many of you who abstain from alcohol feel some amount of superiority over people who drink? And I mean for you to take the question seriously - actually think about your motives.

Some of us do dislike alcohol. I'm one of them. I've never been drunk because I'm unlikely to be drinking the stuff in the first place. It only get annoying when others don't understand that it is possible to dislike it just of dislike sake. It's got nothing to do with religion or any health reason. I don't even like the smell of it.

The worst I got was tipsy, and it wasn't a fun experience, I really don't like the feeling at all. So I'm not really a fan myself.

I'm neutral about it. When I do drink it's not for the taste.

When I was 18 I thought drinking was lame and a waste of money,

When I was 25 i thought a drink or two with friends was nice.

When I was 27 I visited Cuba and learned how to drink from the locals and a bunch of French tourists.

Now I am 30 and drinking is a social expectationan and I enjoy trying new drinks.

You're definitely not alone, and while I like alcohol quite a lot, I just wanted to say that it's a-ok as long as you stick with not liking it and not partaking, rather than the ever-so-modern "I don't like 'X', so noone should be allowed to.".

Do you have some kind of personal reason/s for disliking it, or it is just the part about seeing people who can't control themselves and drink too much too often?

(And yeah, as many pointed out, it's really easy to judge at 18. I don't mean to sound lecturing, but... you'll see why would I even say this in a decade. Opinions change, minds develop, experience accumulates.... There are reason why people almost always feel embarrased when tehy look at what they thought 10+ years ago, at any age.)
