1. not all alcohol tastes the same....I've had some drinks where I didn't even know there was alcohol in them until someone told me there was

2. you don't have to drink to get drunk....I enjoy a beer or two with meals and my friends and I have grown out of the heavy drinking stages of our lives so now when we drink it's just a few beers or a few drinks

3. see number 1

4. I've only ever blacked out twice in my life and that was during bad times in my life where I was honestly going overboard with the drinking...I remember everything else

This is exactly how I feel. 
 
1. When drank in any type of excess, it turns completely logical, sane people into bumbling idiots. 
 
2. It lowers your inhibitions, making you say things you'd normally never say, do things you'd normally never do, and usually wake up the next day with a headache and regrets. 
 
3. It tastes like crap, yes, all of it, especially beer. 
 
4. It's bad for your body and brain 
 
5. The social stigmata attached to it is idiotic. The fact that many don't consider a party "fun" unless there's alcohol involved is stupid. Me and my buddies had a Halloween party, did nothing but drink Mountain Dew, and played Guitar Hero and we had a blast, and didn't have to worry about hangovers. Alcohol doesn't make parties more fun, it just makes you act irresponsibly, creating the illusion of fun.

agreed....I'll be honest when I say that there was a period of time where I was really irresponsible with alcohol...but I've grown out of that and rarely get drunk anymore...when I do drink it's just a six pack or so over the course of several hours...you don't have to get smashed every time you drink

I don't like the beer's taste, and other types of alcohol burns my mouth, I don't find them tasty. But I have tasted small amounts of alcohol with soda and juice, and I like it mainly because the soda or the juice, so, why should I still drinking that?

What if I'm completely irresponsible? What if, in the comfort of my own home, I drink so much that I can no longer remember who or what I was angry at until the next morning in a clarifying haze of cigarette smoke from the second marlboro red I've had in a ten minute time period?

All the anti drinkers here seem to be jumping right to the assumption that touching the stuff will instantly turn you sloppy drunk. In moderation its okay so long as you're of legal age.

All you non drinkers should be grateful for all the money you're saving. I use to live next store to an Irish pub in New Orleans, and that got expensive real quick! Bars in New Orleans don't close in till 5 or 6 in the morning. I blew many of paychecks at that place....

@SoA: I live in a small town in a rural area so most of the bars around here are dive bars so that's really just what I'm used to....I went out to Philly for a birthday once and a friend there took me out and I made sure to tell her that I hated loud, crowded bars, and if there's a dance floor present then I don't want to be there...long story short she apparently didn't listen to well and I ended up hating the entire trip

And I am in no means "anti alcohol" or anything against those lines.People who are,actually remind me of the anti video game kind of people.Which really irritate me because I do play video games and have an interest in them, haven't played any in ages though but I like the look of DC Injustice Gods Among us.So I can kind of see someone who does drink alcohol for enjoyment,their irritation with people like that.

Used to act a donkey. Still drink. But only beer. And that's rare. We'll the occasional hard liquor during birthdays.

Wrecked my brothers car by driving over a median and smashing into a brick-lined fence across the street from a Police Station.

Had to be carried out of a club, then tripped over my own damn feet.

Nearly got into a brawl with my bestfriend out side of another club.

Fell asleep on my ex when we were suppose to get ''body 2 body."

Nearly got into a brawl with a body builder/personal trainer (He was drunk, but I was typsy enough to do the dance) Actually I probably would have fought him anyway. I don't respond well to treats.

Had multiple guns pulled on me (They were drunk. But It showed me the idiocy)

Got to a club. Fell asleep in the car. Woke up vomited all night. Got out. Went inside. DJ was on his last five spins.

Eh, just never really developed a taste for it. I've had some stuff now and then, but never enough to get me acclimated to the taste. Mike's Hard Lemonade shows up quite a bit and I've had a bottle of that a few times and it wasn't bad. It's still not something I'd drink regularly for pleasure though. I'll stick with pop for that.

My younger brother had a fairly serious alcohol problem for a bit. He's been fine for awhile now, but that could have biased me against alcohol as well. Still, I had no desire to drink before that anyway and really have no problem with drinking in and of itself. Most of my friends and family drink at parties and get togethers. As others have said, it's the drinking to excess that causes the problems.

The only thing that stops me from carrying them everywhere in a cool looking flask I have is that they give a side effect the next day, or in the middle of the night, the hangover.

I need to avoid getting a hangover from drinking because I've a pathological fear to vomiting.
