God, get off your high horse. People know the dangers of alcohol. They fuckin know. I respect anyone's decision to not drink but please, push the condescension aside. People make stupid decisions, not always for a lack of education or values.

~*they don't value their personality or intelligence*~ Lord help me.

I'm Irish/Scottish/German which means I get drunk and fight with myself.

Jokes, but yeah, from time to time I do, and I've been blessed with a pretty high tolerance.

Even those with high tolerance can make mistakes and the issue is that it put others in danger.
If they know the dangers, there is no excuse for doing it.

When someone gets hurt/killed, you can't go "Ohh I knew the dangers, but cmon people make stupid decisions". This can happen anyone who drink, no matter tolerance.

I'll get off my high horse when people stop deliberately playing with fire.

Obviously when people get hurt that doesn't apply.

I'm not defending the use of alcohol, I'm not saying it's all shits and giggles. I'm saying going on a forum (in which many people are predisposed to addiction and trying to recover) and spewing a bunch of condescending bullshit isn't going to get people to stop drinking.

When I have the opportunity to do so in a social situation, yes. Problem is that I drink, like, maybe once or twice a month I know my tolerance limits, and respect them.

Only at parties. I only drink with friends and family. My parents like to host parties from time to time, so they let me drink a little, and they know I drink, so it's not like I have to try and sneak around them

My dad was an alcoholic before he realized it was ruining his daughter/my sister and quit cold turkey. I do not wish to continue that legacy. I don't like drunk people. So I rarely ever drink, and if I do, it's often just a few sips of beer, wine, or a shot of rum. I really like kahlua, but alas I know how to moderate myself.

If I want to get a high feeling, I have no problems smoking weed or eating edibles.

At home only. And never ever ever more than one glass at a time.

Now thinking about it, the last time I drank was probably nearly a year ago.

So many are like

Everytime someone drink, they are risking hurting themselves or others.

It could be argued that even when walking outside, you can risk getting hit by a car and the driver panics and crash into another car.

It's not a fair comparison. Almost anything can go wrong, but drinking has a higher chance than walking outside and we have to consider WHY we have to take that risk.

Walking is essential to keep your body functioning and to do things.
While drinking has no benefits. It's just a bad solution to stuff.
Like "Uhh drinking makes me more outgoing, it shows my good sides".
Your good sides has always been there mate, you can do fine without alcohol.

It's unfortunate that one of the most dangerous drugs is the most popular one and that the majority are too dumb to realize it.

It's also disrespecting to yourself as a human. Alcohol makes you dumb, really dumb. It's like if you met a witch and she gave you a potion that transforms you into a goldfish with no personality, that's what alcohol is.

Basically by drinking alcohol, your implying that you don't value your personality and intelligente and rather reduce yourself to a goldfish.

Seth I really respect that you don't drink.
And I almost entirely disagree.

Is it easy to abuse? Absolutely.

Is it worthless? Absolutely not.

Wine has health benefits
And aside from that, alcohol just tastes good.
Not everyone who drinks abuses. Or even drinks to get a buzz or drunk.
A LOT of people can just enjoy the flavor of a nice draft beer, aged wine, scotch, brandy, or mixed drink.

Honestly, if you can't look at alcohol as being a treat, like dessert or junk food, to enjoy in moderation, and as something that can hurt you if you overdo it (as can sugar, salt, fat, red meat, bread- a shit ton of things we eat regularly)

You either do not have the self-control, or are simply too young or immature to enjoy it in the first place.

Kind of like driving- can be a good form of transportation, can be relaxing and fun; not everyone who is able to drive should.

Just like not everyone who owns a gun, or has kids, etc etc should.

There are decisions in life that people take far too lightly, and while that means SOME people shouldn't do certain things

It doesn't mean no one should own guns, drive, drink, eat junk food, or have kids either. It just means that (as always) some people need to hold off until they develop self control.


----


To answer OP, I used to drink, but I feel I'm going to wait until I'm 21 to drink again. It's coming soon enough anyways.
Or I can move to Canada and drink anytime I want ( ͡ ͜ʖ ͡) (but Canada is cold, so)


Just a ghost
