same here, you wake up with a monster hangover, get told what a tit you made out of yourself and promise never to drink again

then next weekend you get invited to go out again and the cycle continues

but why drink so much to get a hang over?
i could understand 1 or 2 drinks to relax you a bit but why have more than that? it makes you act like someone else...

you don't go out intending to get mullered but sometimes you do get carried away and regret it in the morning.

Achully, when you are drunk you act like your true self. For example, i know a girl who is afraid to ammit that she is Bi, and when she is pissed she gets off with loads of girls.

you sound like me. I don't drink because I had to stop for a while and found I was much better off without it.

It took some explaining to people here at first but now they're ok, and people respect me for it. I still go out ocasionally to pubs but they're not really my thing - we do go out and do other things which don't require getting drunk.

Join a society as well, they may have occasionl pub crawls (unless its sport when they seem to be permenantly drunk) and you will find friends who share a common interest.

You don't drink to get hungover, that's just a side effect! (Although not so much for me ). Aside from that, it's fun and it's relaxing, and as long as you don't get to the puking stage it's mostly good. You don't really become someone else, it's just an exaggerrated version of yourself, which can be a good thing or a bad thing.

Generally people at uni will be fine with you not drinking, but I'd suggest you don't make too much of a big thing of it in the first few weeks. I'm not saying you have to drink or anything, but I'd just stick to your soft drinks or whatever, and if someone asks what you want, just ask for another one - don't make a big deal about it (i.e. get all preachy and start asking them why they do it) as it might not give the best impression in your first week. I haven't been able to drink this term due to having glandular fever. I caved in twice on two large social occasions, but apart from that I did fine and everyone was very supportive. There were times when I really wanted to get drunk with everyone else and forget about reality for a bit (Valentine's Day being the most notable).

All my friends say I'm "really cute" when I'm drunk. I#d be interested to know what makes them think that...

I drank with my do-not-drink-alcohol-with-these medicine and I seemed to be drunk after about 2 glasses of wine. Cheap night out

I really don't see the point in going out to get hopelessly drunk, which is what several of my flatmates do at least once a week. Drinking too much gives me all the symptoms of a migrane, and I really do not feel the need to inflict that on myself. Everyone just assumes that student life is all about getting drunk, you do feel like there is some pressure on you to conform to this.
