      checked. It really is as easy as saying no. I do actually drink, but I don't smoke. But all of my friends generally smoke and don't drink lol. We try to give each other stuff but it's just a cascade of nah mans.

      And it's totally ok. We're all just friends hanging out, we've all got preferences. Nobody is going to judge you for saying no.

      I cant drink because of my medication so what am i supposed to do? Its literally impossible to enjoy college parties if youre sober, especially if all your friends get incredibly fucked up. And dont tell me "to act drunk" or "to enjoy myself" because every cunt who ever told me this never ever attended any social gathering without getting drunk within 2 hours. I know for a fact that 95% of people wouldnt enjoy college parties if there was no alcohol, because getting drunk and fucked is all they ever talk about the day after

        Frankly, you're probably not fun to be around even if you drink.

        If you can't figure out how to have fun as a young 20 something with no responsibilities surrounded by other young 20 somethings you're not going to figure out how to have fun when your 30 loaded with responsibilities and surrounded by people who are older, loaded with stress, and putting on their sanitized socializing with coworkers face because being weird might fuck their career.

          If you ever went to a college party you would notice quite fast how its just about drinking and getting fucked up, its not a conspiracy or something. Some people from my major even told me openly to my face how boring it would be for them if they couldnt drink at those events, or how boring it would be in general if they couldnt drink.

          >If you can't figure out how to have fun as a young 20 something with no responsibilities surrounded by other young 20 somethings
          I can. Its not like i am some shut in autist who never goes out to have fun, my problem is that most people in college simply cant have fun without alcohol and that many events wouldnt be fun in the first place if there was no alcohol. Its often times just about drinking, getting fucked up and then telling others how drunk and fucked up you got. You cant imagine what strange looks i get from people when i mention that i dont drink, because most of their social life revolves around drinking and would immediately collapse if they decide to never drink alcohol again.

            He's right.

            Sorry to ruin the delusions of the perma-shutin autists around here who've never been invited anywhere or organized anything but most parties are about sitting around, listening to music, talking and drinking. Even in clubs a lot of people don't dance, they just drink, listen to music, smoke and talk.

              The problem isn't alcohol, the problem is lack of social skills. With social skills you could navigate a social situation. Without social skills any "hang up" is an issue because you don't know how to deal with people.

              Probably biggest thing is making a compromise with the person and telling them a polite lie -- "Hey I am checking on a friend and I will come back and get a beer! big trust!"

              Just drink a little bit, don't get drunk as shit. I know it's hard cause when you drink you're just gonna want more but try.

                Do you really want to spend your time with people whose lives consist of getting drunk and talking about how drunk they are though? Spend your time doing other things.

                In the US about 1/3rd of all adults do not drink for one reason or another, so it isn't uncommon but people still bother you about it. I cut out anyone who tries to encourage me to drink for any reason. Interestingly potheads are much less pushy than drinkers and are easier to deal with.

      I didnt drink and party one night a week when I was in college. I dont regret it.

      I am not even anti drinking. A few years ago I was drinking about a drink a day on average. Its fun.

      One thing I do remember about college was nearly every person in my dorm dropping out and using lots of drugs. Seemed really dumb and self destructive.

      1) humans are social creatures and refusing a food or drink is considered rude

      2) you run the risk of being perceived as “holier than thou” which may not be true but still not a good look.

      > you run the risk of being perceived as “holier than thou” which may not be true but still not a good look.

      This is literally nothing. The risk is so small, and even then, would that be the worst thing in the world to be perceived that way a little bit? You are going to get perceived as being some way you dont like no matter what. Learn to roll with it.

I am on my way to work in a management position some day and am quite confident that the higher ups will expect me to drink with them every now and then.

        it's actually really bad in big4. if you deny the "happy hours" to "bond with the team" you will actually get fucked when it comes to making manager. i don't drink and just go and get club soda. review comes and they say "all your work is great the client loves you but the team doesn't feel like you're family :/"

        The problem isn't alcohol, the problem is lack of social skills. With social skills you could navigate a social situation. Without social skills any "hang up" is an issue because you don't know how to deal with people.

      Why is this so impossibly difficult, especially if you are in college?

      I don't drink because I don't like the taste of most alcoholic beverages, the only ones I enjoy are so fucking sweet, they might as well be capri sun so I just opt to drink a capri sun or juice instead because it will give me the same pleasure. if I am really pressed into drinking because of peer pressure ( parties, toasts at weddings etc. ) I will just hang on to that single bottle of beer or glass of wine for all night so people will stop bothering me and in most cases I won't even finish it. simple as

      My wife was in early pregnancy and we hadn't told anyone yet. I'm still pretty salty about what went down. We were at a party and this random guy gives her a drink. She says she's the designated driver and she's letting me get pissed for the night, and he pulls out his wallet and makes this big show of going "well since I've got a poor person who can't afford a taxi I'm going to give her my cash so she can get one and get totally fucked like a normal person". Then he kept pushing and getting louder and more obnoxious until she just yells that's she's pregnant and somehow he still managed to keep going and try and convince her that "only a few will be fine".

      im surprised that post only got 3 replies. i figured this board would rage in response to it. because its absolutely the truth. guys here on IST especially, they like to pretend like they aren't drinking because of "muh gains", but in reality its because most people here are incredibly insecure and by getting drunk it would make them unable to keep up some sort of veil they are trying to hide parts of their life from others so they are terrified to do it.

        No one's bothering to answer it because the instant one side of a debate is accused of being insecure then that's pretty much it. There's no point in trying to defend myself when all you're going to do is focus on my perceived ulterior motives instead of my actual words. It's the equivalent of trying to prove you're not racist to a leftist.

      They want to think that what they do is normal and right. When they encounter someone who abstains entirely, it makes them question whether what they do actually is (or should be) normal and right, and for some who aren't accustom to such self-reflection, it can be too much to endure. Rather than question themselves and come out stronger for it, their weaker course of action is just to eradicate the source of the conflict: you.

        >Drink and party one night a weekend if you're in college. You'll regret it in the future if you don't.

        I didnt drink and party one night a week when I was in college. I dont regret it.

        I am not even anti drinking. A few years ago I was drinking about a drink a day on average. Its fun.

        One thing I do remember about college was nearly every person in my dorm dropping out and using lots of drugs. Seemed really dumb and self destructive.

        > you run the risk of being perceived as “holier than thou” which may not be true but still not a good look.

        This is literally nothing. The risk is so small, and even then, would that be the worst thing in the world to be perceived that way a little bit? You are going to get perceived as being some way you dont like no matter what. Learn to roll with it.

        >I have to drink alcohol because of what people will think about me!

        It's not the "worst thing in the world", but it certainly doesn't help you in social situations at all. Being seen as a moralistic prude isn't going to make anyone popular.

      This is true. Being drunk feels good at the moment, especially when you're with people, so you push the limits. But you regret it as soon as you're sober. However, once the hangover wears off, you repress those feelings because your brain is already looking forward to the next time. Repeat over and over again

    It's actually easy to not drink, it's not even that good of a drug. The best strategy imo is just to not go out. Isolate yourself and stop talking to people to reduce the temptation to socialize--- socialization inevitably leads to booze consumption, so the fewer friends and engagements you have in your life, the better. Try to stay home on the weekends and evenings... if you bump into someone you know when you're out or something, you might be encouraged to catch up over a drink. don't drink alone either, just have some self control, it's not too hard

    If you don't like to drink, then simply grab a glass and either don't drink it at all (someone will notice eventually) or simply go to the bathroom and throw that shit 2/3 down the sink. And don't drink the rest.

    You get all the bonuses from 'being drunk' (social cred in the hangout + a convenient excuse in case you do anything stupid 'I was drunk lol') with no disadvantage whatsoever. But don't be the 'straight edge' guy that sits in the sofa and is basically the vegan version of IST. No one cares you don't drink bro, you wont pull bitches with that.

    I had like two bad experiences with drinking where I made a fool of myself. One was at a happy hour where some of my older coworkers, pretending to be friendly, got me very drunk and I missed out on a opportunity to get with this really hot lady that worked in the office and was into me at the time.
    She almost went home with me but gave up because I was way too drunk and looking like I was gonna vomit or pass out at any moment.
    I believe they sabotaged me on purpose because they were assholes and because they were jealous that the hot office lady (she was about 29 years old I think) was about to jump on the dick of the 19 year old new guy.

    I still drink moderately on ocasion, like once every month or few months, just to chill and relax. But it's a control you have to learn to develop, if you have no experience, it's very hard to not go over your limit, specially under the influence or others.

    Because college students are higher schoolers with more freedom. Going back to college at 27 made me realize why the older folk in college never socialize with younger college students.

    College students don't have good sleep schedules and they bitch about having to sit down to study barely 1-2 hours a day. You expect them to have decent lifestyles and not drink? They're not serious about their lives because they have no vision or direction. You're just a bitch if you can't some retarded 20 year old "no."

    What's difficult is dealing with the average person's understanding of why people would choose not to drink. I have several close friends that invite me out and borderline force me to take shots and constantly attempt to get me to drink despite me saying no. Most normies barely grasp social interaction without alcohol being involved, it's just not something I've found that they can wrap their heads around. It's such an integral part of so many cultures around the world. You almost have to just find new friends who understand the lifestyle for one reason or another unless you want to deal with the annoyance of hanging around drunk people while you're sober and getting constantly asked "so why don't you drink bro?" And people not taking no for an answer. Anyone else have this experience?
