    Right. And then we have the ones who basically waste their weekends on feeling hungover. And I'm supposed to feel sympathy for them or something because they decided to fill their body with some toxic ass liquid. Haha no dumbass, I'm here enjoying my Saturday and Sunday headache and vomit free. Suck it up, or maybe don't drink so much.

    And why would only people who dont drink understand this?

    1. I drink but I dont get when people waste money on alcohol that they can't afford to waste.

    2. I drink but i dont wait for congratulations when i dont (who the fuck does? Recovering alcoholics are the only ones you congratulate for this)

    3. I dont even get what relevance 3 has to alcohol

    4. I've never been to a 12 AM party. Been to one that lasted that long but i was in bed by that point. Because you are allowed to just not participate.

    5. Been there done that. Thats my boyfriend now. Alcohol could kill him.

    6. You have to listen to people who shouldn't be talking all the fucking time. Theyre drunk, theyre not going to remember or notice if you start walking away.

    7. If you want something else to drink you should have brought something else to drink. Thats what everyone else there did.

    8. Been there. Im sorry, is there a point to this one? Because this isn't news and happens to everyone.

    9. Yeah, i live in Aus, alcohol is our culture. This happens a lot and its really only when you're a fuckhead that you dont understand this.

    10. This happens to me every single time i stay at a friends place. What is your point?
  • CrazynKinky
    Being someone that does drink.
    1. I will never understand people that are broke but still drink. It's a stupid and ridiculous.
    2. If I say I'm not drinking this weekend I don't want a congratulations I'm usually stating it so people know they have a DD or because I want to do something else.
    3. You don't need alcohol to know how to flirt.
    4. If a party starts at midnight. I'm in bed.
    5. I appreciate the people that don't drink and offer to drive but I never expect them to. If I plan on drinking I have a plan to get home. But big THANK YOU.
    6. If you've never had a conversation about life without alcohol I don't think those are real friends. Also avoid all conversations like that while drinking
    7. Ya that could suck sometimes. But with my friends we always make sure there are plenty of non alcoholic bevys
    8. I hate people that don't respect other peoples choices.
    9. I know you can have fun without booze because I do. I don't require alcohol to have fun.
    10. Sunday morning Breakfast is my favorite!
  • bloodmountain1990
    I'm a drinker but I really like the taste of craft beer and sometimes it's a good way to let loose.

    But if someone doesn't want to drink, that's their decision. In fact some people should avoid alcohol together because they become alcoholics or they're just very reckless and can't handle themselves when they're drunk and you gotta babysit them when they do which can get annoying.

    I think more people should just drink less amounts. Honestly though I am curious about what a hangover would feel like. I think if you can't do what you want without being drunk... then you shouldn't drink at all since you'll make horrible decisions.

    • Pink934

      Maybe because some people actually enjoy a beer now and then or a glass of wine to unwind? Personally I don't understand people who never drink.

    I used to drink alcohol but I gave up. It is not because health but because not wanting to gain weight. Maybe it sounds stupid. I cannot gain muscle but it doesn't mean I should gain fat. I want to be between the bmi of 22 and the bmi of 23. I am endomorph and drinking alcohol would mean me having to eat less food. Because alcohol also has calories and those calories are not good calories, bad calories. It is not like eating eggs, which has good calories.
    • lumos

      It's not stupid at all. I've seen a couple of my friends gain weight (one of them especially is now obese) because they drink so much and then eat nothing but junk food after drinking. It makes sense to not drink alcohol because you don't want to gain weight. It was a very wise choice of you and I'm glad you put your own body first.

  • SirenDep
    I drink when I want to and as much as I please. I prefer 1-3 drinks per week, because alcohol is empty calories and gets you very hungry. I don't enjoy getting wasted and behaving weirdly, the implications that excessive drinking can have on my health and the hangover afterwards. Frankly I don't need alcohol to have a good time. Plus, after a long week I usually feel tired and prefer a cold coffee to give me energy to dance and sharpen my spirit than a beer which will make me sleepy. I'm that person who gets upset when a bar doesn't serve coffee after 9.

    Yes, someone who understands. I don't do any drinking, smoking or drugs and people insist i do or i'm selling (because i'm black but i think the last one is funny).
  • Idonthaveausername
    I have to give you mad props for this one. I didn't drink before I turned 21 because I wanted to be nice to my developing brain, so I totally understand this. I actually love drinking now, and I try not to be an asshole to my sober driver because I'm a sloppy drunk and I've been a sober driver for a while.

    But you have to give me a pass on the broke thing because when I go out drinking, I don't pay for my own drinks. As in I have never paid for my own drinks when I go out drinking. Either my friends buy for me or the owner gives them to me free because he has a thing for me. I'm a good girl and don't take drinks from strangers. Some of us broke girls don't have to pay to go out drinking. I appreciate my hot girl privileges.

    • Your friends pay for you and the bartender gives you drinks to get drunk. Real cool hahaha.

  • John_Doesnt
    Yup and we understand why people keep asking us the stupid question of "Why is your skin so hydrated?" or "What's your secret to looking so young?"
  • Other_Tommy_Wiseau
    I hate when people congratulate me cause I don't drink and/or try to say it's good that I don't... it's not that hard to do. Like, instead of drinking, don't. Also, I don't need to be told about the health benefits of not drinking or the psychological benefits... it's just a personal choice. That's it. Also, the insisting I have a drink thing is annoying. Like, bruh, I chose not to. Get over it. And I don't get the less fun person thing. Sure, I get the reasoning, but let's be honest, who's the 1 that needs to not fully be cognizant to have a good time?

      Urgh, I hate the not fun thing. Or "you haven't lived" or "so what do you do" or "how do you have fun" because of not drinking... Like somehow my entire life is just unfulfilled and nothing because I choose to partake in the same activities as them but sober :P

      Agree with all you wrote.

    • @bbch25 it sucks, too, cause I got sloshed a few times and it wasn't anything special. I just got dizzy and that's it. Like, nothing was more fun or more interesting for me. I didn't even act different. Getting drunk has to be the most overrated thing, ever, for me

    • bbch25

      Yes, same!
      I enjoy being deso. I act just as drunk as them when we go out, I have just as much fun, I've danced on tables in bars and clubbed until 9am. But then, I got to get in a car and drive home. When something happened I could switch to alert mode. I wouldn't wake up sick. And I could remember everything.

      How is it "the good ol days" for people who get blind drunk every weekend, if you can't remember half your night lol

  • TonyRyanAgain
    This is dumb, a beer or two now and then doesn't make any of this happen. This is more about not getting shit-faced, not simply having a drink a two.

      Yes... I still went through University without going partying every weekend and I drink maybe once a year and even then not much... But yes, my life is not any less fulfilled than yours because of alcohol.
