    Hi,

    I'm going to University this September and looking forward to it.

    However I quit drinking many years ago. (I never had a problem with drinking I just got bored of it/fed up with it).

    I now have no desire to drink or go out but worry that if I don't go out and drink/go clubing (especially during Freshers Week) that I won't make as many friends and people will find me boring?

    What do you think I should do? Just force myself to take part and go out or be true to my desires and just stay in?

    I think you should go out for fresher's to be sociable, then reel back the drinking and clubbing after.

    I've made great friends at uni and I went clubbing like three times (and always with people I'd known for months). Don't do anything you won't enjoy. Your student union should organise some non-drinking/clubbing events - go to some of these and you'll have a great time.

    Good for you!

    I don't drink (I hate the burning taste of alcohol), but I still go out clubbing. The more drunk people get, the more comfortable I feel to goof around. The people who think you're boring because you don't drink shouldn't be your friends.

    Don't do it if you don't like it. There are many people who don't do it either so its up to you.

    I don't understand why you would even ask this question

    I'm sure any human who felt the need to force them-self to do something they didn't want to which wasn't even important, wouldn't.

    I'm not planning to drink or go clubbing ether. There's many people like that.. However if later you feel like doing it when you get to uni then go ahead but the fact that you said you needed o force yourself and wanted advice from strangers to tell you, you shouldn't is completely strange to me.

    Don't worry about making friends I'm sure if you have a good personality many people will like to be around you even if you don't drink or go clubbing

    Good luck
