    Any Non Alcohol Drinkers?

    i decided to not drink until nyes.. i dont have a drinking problem. i dont think

    kidding, i dont need a drink at all at home or in general, but when i go out, party, bar, etc. well. i drink. most times i casually drink, but like many folks. i do have my moments where i drank to much and then the hangover.. ugh.

    well i decided for a change this fall. i stopped drinking 4 weeks ago and damn.. its feels good not to have a saturday or sunday morning hangover. it was tough in the beginning.. cause my friends ask, why not have a drink or a shot. told them i just want to be alcohol free untill nyes,

    i will have my hangover then

    its good for me to detox for a while and has been a good feeling. been working out even more and harder n sleep great.

    anyone else not drinking?

    I drink maybe twice a year? For the longest time I was the one of two in our group of friends with a drivers license, so I was always the DD. I don't mind so much, but it's nice to let loose once in a while. It doesn't help that everyone I know lives far away either. I either need to spend the night somewhere if I go out, or stay sober and drive home.

    The key to hangovers is prevention not treatment. If you're out drinking heavily take 2 extra strength Advil and 2 Gravol before bed, and wash it down with a bottle of Gatorade. You'll feel much better in the morning!

    I have never liked the taste of alcohol and never ever experienced "the buzz" or a hangover . Hard to miss something you dont know .

    I did once try to get drunk by drinking a pint of beer but i hated every drop going down and nothing happened .

    I drink, but not excessively. I can go weeks without drinking and then go through phases where I have a drink or two each night. Sometimes I feel like it's nice to just have the buzz and relax or let loose a bit. At least once a year I usually get a bad sinus infection that gives me really bad headaches, and I definitely don't drink while I have that because the effects of alcohol seems to agitate my sinuses even more. I don't have anything against anyone who decides not to drink, but also get annoyed at those who think having any drinks is terrible.

    I have never liked the taste of beer and after about one or two I physically want to vomit. I had some bad experiences with wine and just can't drink it anymore. I find it best to avoid the other stuff as it will sneak up on you.

    That said I will have an occasional drink but for the most part not a drinker.

    When I go out, I front load my drinking. That means I drink about 3-4 beers right away, then I drink 2-3 waters, eat something (if available), and maybe a soda or two. I might have another beer or two later on, but then follow it up with another water or two. This way, I am sober when I leave the party or bar (and safe to drive). And when I get home, I will eat a bite of something and never have a hangover.

    Also, I totally gave up on shots. I just can't do shots anymore, they tear me up everytime.

    I don't drink during the week.

    I can't even stand the SMELL of alcohol. I refuse to touch the stuff. Besides, I'd probably be both a lightweight and a mean drunk, given my family history. I'd rather not test that theory.

    I don't do it that often. .I can go months with out a drink..but occasionally I get the urge to go crazy. And I do mean crazy....

    I have never drank and don't plan on ever doing so. I can't even stand the smell, either, and just genuinely don't like being around alcohol. One time (this was last year) I was at a community ribbon cutting event for my work and genuinely thought someone was giving me a glass of punch. I did a complete spit take and nearly gagged! My wife was rather embarrassed but was glad that I caught it before she could take a drink as she was pregnant at the time. They were just handing that stuff out to everyone!

    Addiction runs in some members of my extended family so as I've gotten older I've just never wanted to risk it.

    I haven't had a drink in over six weeks.

    I'm sure I'll have a drink or two at social events in the future, but I prefer not drinking. I never used to drink, then got into it more as an adult. One day recently I just came to realization is really wasn't my thing.

    I miss the ritual of having a drink to signify the day is over or to celebrate a hard task complete. But there were so many other things associated with drinking that were all a negative experience.

    I'm way more productive and feel a lot better, even without a solitary daily drink. I still hang out with my friends who drink. I just tell every person up front I'm taking a break and no one pressures me. It's all good, as I'm not going to rain on someone else's fun. Plus they enjoying having a DD.

    Never had any drinking problem at all, I do drink but it just like a one night only, Like once in every 2 or 3 month. I have other issue than Drinking though.

    I'm actually a Non-Alcoholic. I generally hate the stuff. but I don't mind a snifter or two to toast someone, but I struggle through finishing it, even the fruity drinks, after a while the bitterness of the alcohol is all i taste.

    I might drink a couple of times a year, like when I'm on vacation or at a conference - someplace where I don't have to drive and I can just walk back to the hotel. I'll have a couple of glasses of wine and sleep like the dead.

    I've gotten a lot of crap from friends in the past for not drinking or just nursing one drink socially. I don't begrudge anybody else - have fun and party on! No judgment here! I just have rotten luck and I know it - I don't want to be the one pulled over, because one White Russian would put me over the legal limit. I'm a lightweight, and I know it.

    I finally let those friendships go, because I really got tired of being harassed about it, and who needs overbearing folks?

    Same here. I am also a non-drinker. Never really saw the point.

    Throw me in with the non-drinkers. Never did. I've tried a few, but MAN beer is friggin' rancid. It's made with old stuff and TASTES like it. Not sure how people get around it. Same with wine. You can just taste the....old. Those little warnings go off in my brain like when you're drinking old milk "Something doesn't taste right! This is past it's prime!"

    Funny thing is when people try to "fix" it. Like "Oh, there are a lot of drinks that taste like candy!" Right, pop pretty much tastes like candy, I can get my kicks for sweet stuff from that, ya know? Of course, it helps that I'm rarely in a situation where I'd feel like I would need to loosen up to get to know people. Even when I'm at a bar, it's to play pool with friends, so I'm already with people that I'm comfortable with.

    Besides, I collect toys! I already know I have an addictive personality. When I find something I like, I gotta tear myself away from it. If I find a drink I like and end up liking the feeling, I'll just abuse it. No sense in starting a new vice when I'm still dealing with plenty of others.

    i love me some beer.. Corona or Bud lights. I usually stick with corona.. this past summer it was almost every weekend drinking lots of beer and the belly fat started to kick in then i changed to vodka soda, then that was hangover mania, then changed to a few shots only for the night and That is best instead of drinking LOTS of beer.

    always made sure i ate a good high protein meal before my shots or id be dancing shirtless.. oh wait. i do that sober too

    well, everyone in my posse will be drinking for turkey day and black friday night, but i wont

    i look forward to NYE's. Save all that alcohol money for more toys, movies, shirts, underwear, jock straps
