    If a nineteen year old atheist female from a working class background and not on any medication claimed she didn't drink any alcohol, would you believe her?

    Why or why not?

    Unless I had a significantly good reason to doubt her, yes. I've met many straight edge people.

    Um... yeah. Its her choice as to what she does, and she has no reason to justify that to me or anyone else.

    I know people like that who don't drink. One of them doesn't purely because she's constantly on a diet, but I've known other people who don't drink because they don't like it/it's expensive/bad family experiences with alcohol etc.

    Well we all know those Atheists can't help but drown themselves in toxins like alcohol....

    but seriously..yes why not? I know a few people who don't drink, they're all Atheist and at least one of them isn't from a high income background, as in they got £30 EMA(I know it's not a great thing to go by as it's household income so a partner giving money who doesn't live in the home doesn't count, but it's not the case for them.)

    So if everyone here is saying there's nothing unbelievable about that, why does my doctor always looks at me suspiciously when my answer to "How many units do you drink a week?" is none?

    I'm not - I'm the person in question. My doctor is.
