...or could be telling the truth! Depends on where he's coming from. The first time I got drunk I was already 27 years old. The ironic thing is, it was my Muslim friends here who introduced alcohol to my system. I love them...
I've never been drunk..... I certainly drink once in a blue moon, but not drunk. If someone were to think "differently" of someone because they chose to drink responsibily... I'd have great disappointment. I've had a good teacher. I have an older brother who is an achololic.
I say good for you! I drink but don't allow myself to lose control. I've never once been sh*t-faced or hungover and I think I'm better off for it. I don't see the point. I'd much rather drink to enjoy the flavor and complexity of the wine or beer that I'm having.
Edit: See, you don't have to worry about any of these embarrassing memories:
"I don't drink, smoke or chew... ...or go with boys who do."
I have a drinking problem. I can't drink enough. I'm constantly dehydrated. Alcohol is further dehydrating so I generally avoid it. I've gotten tipsy before, but never drunk. Don't see a point to it. I can have just as much fun and be as goofy without the alcohol.
The money I don't piss away can go toward better things, too.
