Don't Drink? Why?

I know a the majority of us on this forum enjoy the drink (myself included), but I'm wondering as to the rest of you who don't. I've talked to a bunch of people who choose not to drink and commend them for it. I'm just curious as to what your reasons are.

...and I'm not looking for "I'm underage."

Some people probably dont drink because of the empty calories of beer, and it sets you back in your training. I see no problem with alcohol if used in moderation.

I'm undera- o wait

I get asked this question at nearly every single party I attend, because it is very unusual for someone at my college to not drink (or smoke weed). I never know what to say, because to be honest I don't drink because I just don't want to do it. I am happy with the state of mind I'm usually in, so I have no desire to forceably change it with a substance. I don't even drink coffee/energy drinks or take painkillers unless it's absolutely necessary, guess I'm just a purist.

I don't smoke cigs or weed and I don't drink beer.

When I drink, I always have Vodka with me. Besides the tasty alcoholic drinks, whenever I drink, I just drink Vodka.


I really don't drink that much either. Maybe once or twice a month.

That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines. Those are warriors." - Brian Stann

Pretty much the same as Surf and Steph, Never had the need to drink and when I tried it it wasn't good.

A good friend of mine doesn't drink because his dad was an alcoholic deadbeat. But he still goes out with us and isn't uncomfortable around us or anything.
