    No, I have never had a sip of alcohol because it's bad for health, could start an addiction etc

    Absolutely. I currently live in Las Vegas so it'd be rude not to! I am 26 though & I certainly enjoy the taste of alcohol now as opposed to back when I was 17/18/19 where it was more drinking to yet drunk.
    I love alcohol but hate hangovers so I prefer to get tipsy & then slow down or stop.

    I don't because of my anxiety. I get this thing called derealization where I feel really detached from the world and I think drinking would make it worse.

    Eh it could but I definitely wouldn't risk it. Expecially considering it could definitely lead you to becoming an alcoholic if it works, or it could just flat out make you feel more detached.

    Yep, because generally I enjoy being under the influence of alcohol and it makes me way less socially anxious in situations which normally would.

      Yes.

      Well, I force myself to in some social situations.

      It is very hard to drink, it tastes awful, and the after-taste is worse.

      I do and I hate it tbh, but I think there’s just something in my genes which keeps trying to make me love it, so it’s a love-hate thing

      I don’t drink because I don’t like it. I’ve seen and heard too many terrible stories from those who do

      Nope never liked alcohol coz the taste is just awful. Since the age of 18 when I started working as an engineer, all my older work colleagues would try to get me to taste different alcohol and they just didn't taste nice. I seriously do not see the hype of it. I have never gotten drunk before but I did force myself once when I was 18 to drink like one whole glass and i was seeing 4 doors instead of one so never again. I only did it coz of peer pressure but now I know better. Even on new years when my parents give me and my brothers like two drops of champagne, I have to either decline it or because I don't want to be rude I just take a tiny sip and throw the rest away out of respect. Also my dad only drinks like half a glass of champagne or even less and he never allowed such at home so I guess I grew up not wanting one and now that am 22, I am still confused as to what the hype is apart from getting drunk, looking cool and having hangover and headache the whole day.
