I don't drink, never really have done, and my friends don't think any less of me, and I still get invited on nights out with them.

I've recently started a new school, so i have a new group of friends who I don't know as well as my old friends. We are going camping this weekend to say goodbye to someone who is leaving and I know there will be drink involved (Again because I don't know them I don't know how much they will be planning on having etc).
This may sound like a stupid question but should I tell them straight that I don't drink?
Because I know they will ask why, but I don't really have a reason, its just one of those things y'know? Should I make up some excuse? I have this dilemma mainly because I don't know them as well as my old friends, who have known me for long enough that they just accepted it...
For anyone who has actually bothered to read this/reply then thank you!
(Ps. I can't use the ''I'll drive'' excuse because I'm still on my Learners licence).

Just don't drink. If anyone asks why you aren't drinking, just tell them you don't drink. It's hardly a big deal, nobody's going to sue you for it. Why would anyone else care? Look at it from their point of view - it doesn't make the slightest bit of difference. If anything, it just means there's more for them to drink.
I don't drink, and I've never needed to "think of an excuse" or plead with people to respect my decision. It's no different to saying "I don't eat ice-cream" or something like that.Last edited by tazarooni89; 09-12-2010 at 15:02.
