I don't drink or smoke. How to blend in at parties?

    • Thread Starter

    So I don't smoke, do drugs, don't really drink nor dance.. what am I to do? I mean everyone at university seems to do atleast one of those and being invited to parties and telling myself how am i to cope without being the odd one out sucks. Nobody has really peer pressured me into doing any of those things, I feel like I'm peer pressuring myself to do those to blend in. If that makes sense. I guess I just don't want people to think I'm boring because I don't smoke/drink? People do however at parties ask me if I'm drunk occasionally but thats because I find I can soak in peoples energies around me. Also I've got a bit of a dodgy stomach so sometimes it doesn't handle alcohol. Any advice or anything would be helpful. Not really sure what I'm looking for?

    TLDR: I'm a boring sod don't invite me to your party
