I swear to God people are surprised when i (18m) tell them I don't drink
But you aren't even old enough to drink in the first place.
I'm the same age too, but people aren't surprised when I say it lol
That's because it has become a social norm to throw a couple years off your life in favor of looking cool in front of people who do not care. Gotta live life for you and be who you want to be. The people who can't accept that can go find someone else and naturally those who agree with you will start to gravitate toward you
Man the instant I told my friends I was giving up alcohol they treated me different, I still smoke weed I just can't do the sauce cause of medications
People who appear to have none of the common vices keep turning out to be diddlers is why people are suspicious of them.
So I'm a "diddler" because I can't stand the taste of alcohol.....?
Do you have any of the common vices? So maybe not alcohol but you know: cigarettes, weed, coffee.. maybe a occasionally do some cocaine?
If none of that I better see you gambling or something or else I'm going to be suspicious of your intentions.
Because living a clean life is just so horrible, surely only a monster can achieve it. /s
A fine example of the braincell destroying effects of the excess.
As a 29yo I can absolutely confirm this and it's annoying as heck!
Oh boy the times I've been told I just haven't found my drink yet and even got questioned my whole taste on its own......
Same, i am also 29 and for the life of me can not find a beer that i enjoy. Ive had plenty of situations where my friends or family say, try this one it taste nothing like beer. But thats a lie and it taste just as disgusting as all the other.
But i do enjoy some hard liquors like Whiskey. (Wild Turkey: American Honey is my favourite. But even then i dont drink that often and when i do, its usually just 1 glass.
Then i get judgemental looks for not drinking along, and im just like, i dont care. Im not gonna force myself to drink something disgusting like beer or force myself to keep drinking just because all of you are. Im gonna drink what i enjoy, then probably switch to a Sweet Tea after my 1 drink.
THIS sums it up so perfectly well!
Bruh, I don't get why people are so obsessed with alcohol.
Yes, I drink too, but I don't think it helps in any way. As a matter of fact I had times when it only worsened my mood and stability.
If one doesn't like alcohol, it's probably more than fine for them.
I don't get it either. If I say I don't like raw tomatos most couldn't care less, some just go "haha same". But if I say it about alcohol many go nuts - even though they are adults.
I think this is somewhat situational. Someone who is 10k days sober probably is sponsoring or has sponsored several other people and their sponsorees probably ask all kinds of questions about the struggle.
It went right over your head, didn't it
I wish everyone would respect - even if they don't understand - this boundary. When someone politely declines a drink, the correct follow up is, "what else can I get you?" Not, "why not" or its variations. It's likely very personal and you are not owed an answer.
I swear, as a Muslim I can't tell you the amount of times people have said I should "just try" to see if I like it.
Wdym bro, religious reasons? Nahhhh you'll like this /s
My best friend never ever drinks while i've been an alcoholic. I am not sure if it's a gene, because my father and my grandma and grandpa were alcoholics. I've learned after years to accept that he doesn't want to drink. The interesting aspect with alcohol is that it can show you things about yourself. And I've had many times that i wrote things to my sober self. And my sober self writes things to my drunk self. And i even tell people to not trust my sober self or "my sober self will say that, like i play a game with myself". Idk, it's up to the individual. Got it under control now. It seems alien to me that some people never drink, but i learned to accept and respect it. For me tho, I've written some damn insightful things while drunk.
I find it easier to lie and say I'm in recovery than say o don't drink.
