    I don't drink, anymore at all.

    Not even a bit. I don't like the taste of alcohol or what it does to people. Although people seems to keep asking me if I've been drinking the night before because basically when I get up I look kind of rough. Yet I'm not drinking and it's really annoying me because I don't...

    But I Used To!

    I stopped drinking in July of 2005. I just didnt want it anymore.  May be because I started taking Cymbalta, idk. But I started drinking at an early age.  When I was pre-teen I actually stole some early times....and poured it in my cereal.  eeeuuwww. First...

    I Have Never Tried It!

    I am 23 years old and I have never drank once in my life. I wasn't raised around it (meaning that my mom and dad never drank), so I guess you could say I have always been worried what family would think if I did do it.        I...

    I Dont Get It

    I Can't Say I Never Touch the Stuff But,,,

    I seldom ever drink alcohol. I was dragged around a camp fire by my foot one time. I decided right then and there that I would remain in control of my situations from now on. And I have done it. I seldom ever drink more than one or two. And I never drink and...

    Not For Everyone I Suppose!

    It's not like I have anything against drinking. I would do it myself if I could get past the taste. Oh well. I tried!

    Personal Preferences

    Growing up in a family chalk full of alcoholics drug addicts (on all sides of the tree) changes a person's perspective on how "fun" it is to drink. One time, when I was 14, I walked into the kitchen from the yard and was thirsty so I reached for the glass of water on...

    The first time I really drank was New Years Eve

    2013. I was so wasted, I actually had sex with my best friend and barely remembered it the next morning. The second time it happened, I said that was enough. It wasn't until a couple days ago that I drank again- it's been over a year since the incidents. I drank tequila for the...
