^ I grew up in a house where alcohol was rarely allowed. If you were incredibly sick, you would be given a a nip for medicinal purposes only. That was it. If people came over to play music with my father, their beer was kept under the sink. It was not allowed in the refrigerator. Same when my brother turned 21 and moved back in with it. It had to be kept in his room. Drinking was treated like a big, dirty, shame. More so by my mom than dad, but even he would call someone a drunk if they drank 3 beers (he had a raging alcoholic father).

With that said, I find it strange when people have never drank. I don't find it bad either, just odd. I do occasionally side eye some people who say they have never tried anything, because I know better. I have heard the stories. No point in hiding it now.

I confess I have never taken or tried an illegal drug, not even marijuana.

I'm certainly not judging those who don't drink. That would be silly. But I always have alcohol in my house, and I almost always have a drink with dinner.

I'm appropriate about it. I don't drink beer at Chuck E Cheese. If I go out to dinner, just me and my kids, I don't drink. But they see me drink a drink at home. I also talk to them about how having a drink or two is okay, but excessively drinking is not, and they should never get in a car with someone who's been drinking alcohol.

My mom isn't much of a drinker bc she doesn't like to drink alone (I don't mind!), but she still buys it, so her house is ridiculously stocked with unopened booze.

That I don't even flinch at, due to the legality.

I know people who won't even cook with beer or wine. Now that really blows my mind. They are horrified of what people will think of them if they are seen buying a bottle. I can't even begin to care that much about what others might think.

ETA: I am happy to report that I got my mom to reconsider on wine. She wanted to try some recipes, and I talked her into having no shame, buying some, and doing it. She will even have a sip or two in the process. No harm, no foul.

I've taken most drugs (eek) and smoked copious amounts of marijuana. Lol.

Marijuana doesn't bother me bc it just makes you a little 'dumb' for a bit. No worse than some of the people who walk around sober! Lol.

But we were spending the weekend at a beach in RI, and there was this group of people at the beach patio restaurant that were clearly all coked up. That was very irritating.

My house is v. dry. My dad has alcoholics all through his family and has struggled with alcoholism/depression since his father's death so our house is dry, which is fine. I always thought alcohol was for special occasions (weddings, communion, funerals) so I never thought it was something you just kept in the house.

I had nips of wine from my grandma at weddings and stuff but I didn't drink until college (I was the ~designated driver~ person in high school). Now I have a handle of gin in my fridge and occasionally a bottle of wine. But I never think it's weird when people say they don't drink.


ETA: Marijuana is my fav and I wish it was legal everywhere because it's ridiculous that it's not. I've also tried MDMA once.

We joke that I'm a controlled drunk. I haven't been actual drunk in quite a while. I get hungover pretty easily. But I do love red wine.

For me it's partially a cultural difference. My bf and ex grew up like you whereas I'm the opposite. I sort of had hangups/image about alcohol given my upbringing(Islam - nooo drinking) but I'm getting over it(the stigma, not the actual drinking, ive been doing that for years!).

I drink on the weekends and occasionally on the weekdays but it's usually if I'm out or want a buzz. I don't typically drink beer or wine. My first drink was at 21 and it was a Sex on the Beach. It just made me feel all nice warm and fuzzy.

I'm usually a happy/horny/hyper drunk. When it's too much I get obnoxious and annoying(which is a little how I am naturally) and when I'm around other people who are also like that(like my brother and bf) it leads to some bad fights.

I don't find it odd that some people don't or never have had alcohol. I know for some it is for religious reasons and for others it is based on family dynamics (alcoholism or drug addition). There are also medical reasons why people don't as well.

I don't drink hard liquor anymore. I have to take medications that are hard on my liver. No point in compounding the problem. The only thing I miss is tequila. I haven't given up my wine though.

When you're sober around drunk people who act like idiots, its no fun. I also rarely drink because I never know how I'm going to get home then or what not and I would prefer to not stay at other's houses, and everyone I know always wants to go "out" but no one wants to drive, and see previous sentence about being sober around drunk people not being fun. I also refuse to be arrested...or die due to alcohol. Ain't nobody got time for that.



I do love a nice dark beer though, but I like to have beers with food, I don't like to drink to get wasted which is primarily the style of people my age, sooo...again see previous statement of being sober or the least drunk out of wasted people is not fun.


I went to party where everyone had "popped" a molly. God they were so lame, "omg i can't stop shaking, omg I just took a molly" x 500 times. WE GET IT you're soooo cool.

My friend used to smoke weed all the time ( I did in hs to be cool ) and then I got annoyed because she would just go to sleep....with me still awake at her house! She did it 5 times!

Oooooomg. Drunk people are so, so annoying. Sometimes I wish I was drunk, too, just so that they'd stop seeming so annoying.

My brother got a DUI the night before my 16th birthday. That kind of made me hate alcohol a bit for a while... The good news is that he's not such a douche/careless idiot now. And I no longer hate alcohol. I just don't want to drink it. Haha

Seriously though, I think a lot of people feel like I'm judging them because they're drinking and I'm not. I honestly don't care. Do you really think I sit there and judge my parents at dinner when they drink wine? Or my entire extended family when they drink at functions? Or my friend when she orders hot sake? No. Do what you want. I'mma do what I want! Some people (and I'm not talking about anyone on this thread! Promise!) get so defensive about it! And then they're like "Oh, you're not drinking? Do you think you're better than us?" At this very moment in time, when you're being such a jerk, yes. But otherwise, no.

I just prefer my glass of high fructose corn syrup to taste only like Pepsi. Or even better... A plain shirley temple. Y'ALL, THOSE ARE DELICIOUS. DON'T RUIN MINE WITH THE TASTE OF ALCOHOL!

I've gone through periods of insomnia where that was the only thing that would let me sleep. I prefer it to the alternative. I won't take Ambien. I don't do sleeping pills bc I have kids and I want to be able to wake up.

Currently I occasionally take a low dose of xanax. I don't like doing that but its whats available.

God I could not drink beer alone just for the heck of it. I drink it with burgers. Kinda the same for wine. I drink it with food and/or right after I've eaten. But I do sometimes just have a glass after a ~day~.

Also drinking to get drunk was only fun in college. My sister still does that and I'm like "how are you not tired all the time?" I do make exceptions for celebration (or commiseration) like defending your dissertation or w/e. But like on friday night happy hours, a martini or two will suffice yo.

Brunch and bottomless mimosas are a free for all tbh lol

Thats silly. If you don't want to drink, why is that a big deal?

Bf very rarely drinks. I joke that a 6 pack of beer will last him 2 months, and thats only bc I end up drinking it!

His mom never drinks, or has booze in the house. Even on holidays. I'm like, really? Never? Its just different for me. My grandfather always had a Manhattan in his hand. My dad, a beer.

I pretty much only drink wine bc I don't like feeling of other alcohol buzzes .

The point here is, to each their own!

Oh, and I cant STAND drunk ppl when I'm sober! Thats why I just don't go out and drink anymore.
