This is probably going to be quite a different post, I wouldn't say controversial but it's definitely different. One of the biggest questions I get asked on nights out or when I go out for drinks or a meal with someone, or one of the biggest things people are shocked about when they first meet me is that I don't drink alcohol at all. A lot of people don't seem to grasp that it's okay if you don't drink alcohol and you can actually have fun without needing to intoxicate yourself.
So, this post may answer some questions as to why some people don't drink and it's not weird if you don't want to have alcohol.
When people find out I don't drink there is only two types of responses I get, one response being "that's amazing, and a really rare thing to find. Well Done!", but I don't see it as an achievement? The second response I get it shock, and people immediately go "Why?" before asking question after question. One of the biggest questions that anyone asks me when they find out I don't drink alcohol is WHY? Why don't I drink alcohol? Is it for religious reasons? Do I just not like the taste? Does alcohol affect me badly?
