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 had 2 uncles who did drink quite heavily and were crazy drunks and I never understood why they couldn't just quit. Seeing them in their drunken state made me not even want to touch the stuff.

Just here recently I have started to wonder what it would be like just to try it. I guess I am getting tired of feeling like I am the only one in the world who has never touched the stuff and I sometimes wonder if maybe it would help me forget some of my problems. I know that it wont but its wishful thinking that it might.

I have went this long not trying it, so why should I even be thinking about it now. I probably still wont try it but who knows.

Although it feels like it, don't worry you are not the only one in the world who has never touched alcohol. I dont drink either, and Im older than you. I don't see the use for it, there are lots of other things to drink if you are thirsty.<br />
It seems to mee that your concern is about becoming drunk though, and you don't have to drink alcohol to that point - ever.<br />
It's not worth it.<br />
So if your concern is that youll have a problem stopping once you taste it.<br />
Don't try it.

i dont think theres antyhing wrong with trying it, not that it tastes any good or makes you feel any better, well maybe temporarily, but definately dont for one second think that it might possibly help get rid of any problems that you have- its just fuel for the fire, in more ways than one
