What would you think of a person who's 22 years old and has never been drunk?

    ...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 would say you were very good at resisting peer pressure particularly if you were British because alcohol is pushed on young people everywhere.

    I didn't drink till I was 23. I was raised a lot differently and things like that didn't really matter to me. Getting through school was more important.

    It isn't clear to me if the question is has never taken a drink of alcohol or has never been drunk?

    Never being drunk is a very good thing. The sensation is unpleasant and the after affects are terrible. Being drunk robs wine (something pretty ancient) of all its beauty and complexity.

    When you take something that is serious seriously then what can be bad about that? The culture says kids drink heavily. What is the payoff in that? The only winners are pub owners and spirit vendors.

    If you're referring to yourself, then congratulations and when you do drink, do it to enjoy what your drinking.

    That their priorities and temptations are different than mine. Then again that goes for everyone.

    41 here and have never been drunk. Had a a friend killed by a drunk driver many years ago and have never wanted any part of it. Yes, I will have an occasional drink, but that is as far as it goes.

    I´d think exactly the same of them as I did before I learnt. I don´t think getting drunk is cool at all, so the only thing they missed out on was the hangover.

    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 had a friend at university who didn't drink.

    It was kinda impressive.

    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:

    Thanks for stealing my thunder icon_rolleyes.gif I'm only 23, which is one year less impressive!

    Although, I'm a professional bartender. Does that help on the ironic scale?

    As one of my high school teachers used to say:

    "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.

    Good for him! As a person who, once upon a time, couldn't stop drinking, I am here to tell ya, you've missed nothing.

    I would think you don't like alcohol.
    If that is your choice stick with it, i think i had a little peer pressure influence me when I did it
    I was 29 the first time and i still don't like alcohol.

    I'm 30 and never been drunk. I've seen way to many stupid people in college and that just completely turned me off from alcohol. Besides I've never been fond of the taste.
