    I pretty much stick to whiskey (neat or with coke depending on where i am), and 'starter' drinks (maybe a bottle or two of beer/cider).

    I stopped for a year (definitely not while I was 17 *whistles innocently) because I didnt like what I was drinking (beer mainly). 18 currently and now that i've found a taste I like, I dont see any reason not to drink. Bad for your health but I'd prefer a fun life than a safe one.

    Drink yes drunk no.
    People that drink to get drunk are really sad, there is no point, you get to a point where its not even fun any more and you hardly remember anything.

    I don't drink alcohol, but I don't have much of a social life. I don't think the two are mutually exclusive, I just don't get invited places.

    Just dont like the stuff. I dont feel any need to drink and im perfectly happy without it.
    Plus everyone always complains about hangovers and throwing up so im fine without having that happen.
    Drinking is a waste of money in my opinion

    Out of sheer curiosity, what age bracket are we talking about? No, I don't drink. Never did. But yeah, tasted it for a religious ceremony.

    I have never been drunk however I have drank alcohol previously on a few occasion even though I'm not "allowed" too...

    I never thought I needed alcohol but the last time I drank it was with a friend and I definitely felt the effects of it and can understand why people do drink to enjoy themselves, I went from and okay mood to an on top of the mountain Queen of the world type of mood in a matter of minutes...

    I don't drink mostly because I don't have any proper access to it.

    I don't drink alcohol, as I prefer tea, and having control over my own thoughts and actions.

    Moi. Although I like the very occasional fruit cider, preferably non-alcoholic, though.

    I don't because I don't like the idea and I didn't have a social life to begin with so not drinking can't exactly do a lot of harm :lol:

    Even though my mates drink, I don't even when I'm in parties. The last one I went to I put cranberry juice in a wine glass and everyone was wondering how I wasn't drunk from all the "wine" I was drinking

    I occasionally have Baileys since its the only thing with alcohol I like but I tend the avoid due to detrimental health reasons and the idea of waking up with a stinking headache and not remembering anything after a night out doesn't appeal to me much. Remembering everything with making one drink last is better than chugging down alcohol endlessly


    Going to uni next year and I'm pretty sure I won't have hangovers but can't speak too soon..

    Never drank, don't have any plans too.

    Waste of money, lack of control, health risks... all for a couple hours of a good time? i can have a good time without alcohol and will continue to do so. (also can make alot of money taxiing drunk friends).

    I don't drink often (by that I mean I drink like 2-3 times a year on specific occasions) but I don't see anything bad in drinking occasionally as long as you know your limits.

    Personally I don't simply because I can have a good time without drinking and it can be a waste of money. Plus I always end up with someone who's a sad drunk which kinda ruins it.

    As for some people saying how they don't because they want to be in control, I don't really have that problem. My mind is the last to shut down when I drink. I may not walk straight but my mind would be still fully functional with just slightly slower reactions. It kinda explains why when I do drink, I don't drink that much.

    Yes I do , and I don't think your mad , you are a nice person and have good personality . - by the way you should not listen to people because their are people in the world you cannot stand your happiness. So DW about that .
    And I definitely don't think like that about you , you had your opinion as everyone else did.
