I've never tasted alcohol in my entire life and in total honesty, I neither think I'm missing out on anything "fun" or "good" nor I have any curiosity to know what alcohol tastes like. Not interested, not curious, nothing. Nada.
While I don't mind and honestly don't even care who drinks and why, I do resent the people who make assumptions about my lack of interest in alcohol. Who in the hell gave people permission to automatically assume I'm stuck up, arrogant, holier-than-thou (e.g., see Import's comment to the OP above), etc.?
If other people want to drink in moderation or get plastered, awesome for them. Have your fun whichever way you like it. I have every right to go out and have an awesome time without drinking alcohol just like the people for whom alcohol is an absolute necessity in order to have fun.
Don't worry, Northarrow, if other people judge you because you don't drink. The fact that they judge because of it is a clear sign they don't know you. All the people I care about embrace me as I am and my not drinking is an absolute non-issue for them. And that's exactly how it's supposed to be. You'd be surprised, there are millions of us non drinkers on this great planet of ours.
