    me, got drunk once, even then I retained all mental faculties, didn't see the point in it, became teetotal.
    You clearly didn't get drunk drunk then

    Possibly not. For some people the mind shuts off last. I personally can get so drunk I'm not walking straight and puking everywhere but my mind is still fully processing and understanding everything. The only way to get more drunk would be coma passed out kinda drunk.

    So yeah, some people can be drunk yet retain full mental faculties. Just likely slight slower thinking and reaction time.

    I have never had a proper* drink simply because I have never had someone to drink with in a pub.

    *I don't think a pint of that apple thing counts.

    I dont drink.

    I have many reasons:
    - alcoholics in the family
    - alcohol triggers my migraines
    - like to be completely in control
    - dont like 99% or alcoholic drinks anyway
    - cant see any positive health impacts of alcohol and dont see the point of filling my body with something harmful

    It can get quite annoying trying to socialise at uni when everyone else is bladdered, you have to have patience and be able to join in with their foolishness. Its usually fine around friends but at 3am in a nightclub i hate it, so i tend to avoid. It also means you are the designated "parent" of the group which can often be a pain 😂

    I don't mean Muslims but just people who don't drink alcohol out of choice. Can I ask why you don't drink and what affect it has on your social life?
    I don't drink due to a combination of religious reasons, the fact that I don't like alcohol and because of the damage alcoholism has done to my family

    No impact on my social life, if I want to go to a bar or pub with friends, I will still go with them just not drink alcohol. Most of the stuff I do with my friends doesn't involve alcohol anyway, like going walking

    Because the taste of alcohol is an assault on my senses. Also because I like being sober. It doesn't affect my social life.

    It's unhealthy and I'd rather spend my calories on food also I have no money anyways. I'm a bit of an introvert but when I do go party's and stuff I just get a lemonade or orange juice and people just think in drinking haha

    I don't really drink mainly because of the fact that I want to stay in control of myself. I don't really like the taste either bar a few ciders I've tried. I don't really see the point really, when I can just drink juices & the occasional soft drink & still have a good time socially & be fully aware of my surroundings at the same time.

    I drink alcohol and most people I know also get drunk. This is probably due to the area where we stay or our country in general.

    There isn't anything wrong with going out and having a drink or celebrating a certain event with alcohol.

    I drink, but I don't get drunk.

    This for myself too. Bar the migraines. Don't get them.

    Incidentally I work as a doormen, so that puts me off too... Seeing people... Get -that- drunk is very off-putting. Leaves a bad taste in your mouth for sure.

    Still, I'd drink at home recreationally if it weren't for my disliking most alcoholic beverages, although I do have some cocktails at home occasionally. But I never go out to drink, or drink beer.
