Hi,

I am very young, above the legal drinking age.

I am a student, and yet I have never had a form of an alcoholic beverage whether it be a beer or spirit.

Personally, I find that it destroys people and society in general. People have said things that they later regret, due to alcohol and the same goes to road deaths.

People my age drink, because they think its cool etc. People say to me, you go to parties and discos and yet you don't drink. Yes, I am proud that I don't drink and I love dancing.

I like innocent girls that don't drink, or smoke, but I find it very hard. In fact I have had girls thinking they are so full of themselves and using their sexuality to show that they are superior.

See you in a couple of years when you are wondering why you have no friends and can't talk to girls.

why do you need alcohol to have a good time? Can't you enjoy each others' company without getting pissed and not remembering what you did last night ?

There is not a fine line between sobriety and getting so drunk you lose your memory.


I drink alcohol because I like the taste of the drinks I get (I'll only drink crap like Carlsberg if it's dirt cheap or free) and I like the feeling of being a bit drunk. I almost never drink so much I can't control myself.

I'd probably still drink beer if it was non-alcoholic. Unfortunately the only non-alcoholic beers you can currently buy are brands which are not worth drinking for the flavour, only the alcoholic content.

so because some people can't handle drink, alcohol is evil?

Because it tastes good.

If you like the taste fair enough, i personally don't. The fact people think alcohol is the only way to socialise winds me up

I drink. But I agree it's poison. People drink to temporarily escape their reality.

despite the drop in quality, I drink as much non-alcoholic beer as alcoholic beer.

I drink beer because it tastes good, however I don't always want to drink alcohol. It annoys me hugely that there is not a wider, better range of non-alcoholic beer about. Becks Blue just about passes muster.

However Brewdog Nanny state is now on sale in Tesco - at £1.50 a bottle its not cheap, but it is quite nice. I might order a case if I can get some cheaply.

People drink because:

A) The drinks taste nice

B) Alcohol helps people relax

C) Pubs, bars and clubs are good places to socialise and that's the main thing they sell.

It really isn't that complicated.

The problem I find is that I can only seem to find things like Becks Blue which I wouldn't contemplate drinking.

I didn't realise Brewdog did a non alcoholic beer. At least they're well known for making quality products although I think I had Punk IPA or Dead Pony Club once and didn't enjoy it at all. That could be more to do with the style of the beer and my preferences than its quality. £1.50 is very steep considering I don't think there'd be much in the way of beer duty, if any. If authorities want us to drink less then I think there should be a financial incentive to get the non alcoholic versions by making them much cheaper.

I'd like to see Old Tom/Old Peculiar/Black Sheep Ale in non alcoholic versions. That's something I could get behind.

I don't really like Becks Blue, but the alternative is either
a) drink soft drinks
b) become an alcoholic

neither of which particularly appeals.

Nanny State is very much in the DPC, Punk model. I think the price is supposedly because they use lots of hops to give it a bit of flavour.
