Too mature for my age? Watch

For some time now I've been realizing that i'm divergent to my friends and social circle, i'm 18 and my friends are also around that age. The only thing they seem to talk about is sex, drugs/alcohol and relationships. I don't particularly like to drink and have smoked weed on occasion but don't see the need for it, furthermore i don't appear to be fixated on sex and relationships as much as my friends are.

The things i enjoy are; video games, computer science, philosophy and physics. In my entire life I've only had one friend who's been analogous
to me but he had the liberty of relocating to the US for university.

I find it irritating to have conversations with them as they would perpetually ask "what girl you looking to knock up tonight" or "how many shots of vodka can you handle". The only explication i can think of is to find new friends though i'm especially socially awkward when meeting new people, furthermore I've known some of these people in excess of 10 years. Right now i'm simply trusting them to mature within the next while however that doesn't generally appear to be likely.

Has anyone else had a comparable problem? and is this a common occurrence while growing up?
