    Hi. I’m 20 and absolutely hate alcohol, not just the taste, not just how it effects people. But also how society feels about it. If there’s anyone else who feels like this, I’d love to talk. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t drink or feel like I do and I’m starting to feel isolated.

    I once had a sip of some alcohol and I am never drinking it again. Also, I don't like coffee and hardly have any tea. I am very fussy when it comes to food and drink.

    What I mean is how normal it is for people to drink. How it’s become a part of life. How people assume everyone drinks, everywhere I go I’m offered alcohol and more people are suprised when I turn it away. I’ve seen alcohol given to miners without any kind of thought about it.

    I am also aged 20, I have never had a alcoholic drink in my life and don't plan too. I don't see the point in drinking something which can detrimental to your health. Also (feel free to call me mad) I have never had any fizzy drinks either.

    Fair enough, I have a heart problem (I won’t go into too much detail) so I don’t want to drink anything that may make it worse, so I am very careful in what I drink.

    None alcoholics unite! :lol:
    Have zero interest in alcohol myself but a lot of society and social interaction is based around alcohol to an extent which is a shame. People usually call you boring if you say you don't drink. I can't wait till im 60 and no one else is drinking. I'll be normal :moon:

    Hi,
    I wish I could feel normal.
    All my friends have gone out tonight to celebrate a birthday and I’ve had to stay home because they all know I don’t drink. I just want to have people to talk to when this happens.

    It's ok you can all just get drunk on your own self-indulgence instead.

    As soon as you start to talk about "society" you know it's a neckbeardy thread.

    The idea that you're some special gentleman (or lady) who is railing against a society full of sheep. Somehow there is some mythical group of everyone else that makes up rules that you don't conform to....

    I don’t think anyone is a sheep!! I just know that I have very different opinions on the matter of alcohol and I wish I didn’t because it makes me feel very isolated and like I’m wierd.
    Often I wish society had the same opinion as me, but doesn’t everyone at some point. I just want to feel normal.

    We don't need alcohol, we have Dijkstra and his algorithms to keep up company! :dumbells:
