    I’m 15 almost 16 and very one I know drinks I have 2 friends who don’t and that’s it I’ve lost so many friendships because if this they say I’m boring and should just come out with them once I’m 15 I shouldn’t be worried about drinking I’m focusing on my exams right now. I don’t see the point in getting drunk I’ve been around people my act drunk and they aren’t nice idk what to do I feel like I have no one now

    If people don't want to be friends with you because you don't want to drink then they're certainly not worth being friends with anyway. If you were 18+ then I'd say sure, it's good to try it, see if you enjoy it. But you're 15. Don't feel pressured to do anything you're not comfortable with.

    If they judge you for not drinking they're probably not the kind of friends you want to stay with, they should respect your decision. Also, ethanol kills brain cells, and there's a reason the legal age is 18- excessive drinking can really harm you long term, and you won't see the effects until it's too late.

    It's okay. I'm not a big drinker, and even now at uni everyone has pre-drinks then goes out to get drunk at a club and then come home for after drinks and I've said no to joining them and they've called me boring. It's okay not to drink and you should stick with it.
