Is it strange for me not to like drinking?  I am by no means a mormon or someone who would like to define themselves as "straight-edged."  Sometimes I feel that in defining oneself as so, one claims superiority in a condescending sort of manner, saying "I am ABOVE the influence, making you below it and therefore inferior."  By I digress, sort of. 
I am a college student and around my age, it seems almost expected that most of my demographic would enjoy to engage in the social activity of alcohol consumption.  However, I just don't enjoy partaking in.  I am in college, so obviously I have encountered it.  The first party I went to was during the first week at school.  They were only serving beer (watered-down, according to many of the guests) and while I didn't enjoy it, I certainly didn't hate.  My attitude towards alcohol therefore remained neutral.  After that, I learned that I didn't like it at a party on Halloween night and subsequently at another party sometime in February.
I don't really like the taste.  But, of course, I don't think you're supposed to like the taste.  I don't like the effects.  I don't like the fact that it makes you, well, drunk and that it gives you headaches afterwards.  So what am I supposed to like.  Why is it that the majority of my school's population, and at most universities, simply love getting wasted?  Every single social activity seems to revolve around alcoholic consumption.  I've avoided the substance for the majority of my two years at school (with the exception of the events mentioned prior) because I don't like it, not out of righteousness or anything.  Is it weird that I don't like alcohol?

True, I've only tried one drink that actually tasted pretty decent but I forgot the name of it. Anyways, I ended up drinking too much of it and got white girl drunk.

I'd rather take that soft drink(or whatever people label it under)that tastes somewhat decent than some strong disgusting shit like Bacardi, Vodka or Proton ...I don't call if someone says I'm drinking a bitch drunk, I'd rather get drunk the easy way.

im in your same boat, entering third year of college.. i drink every so often (maybe once a month tops, and thats really if we have friends over and everyon else is).

i smoked weed more last year than drank (and i go to a big party school), though i think im done with that too just because i dont want to worry about applying to a job thatll drug test me.  like you i dont like the effects of it, and certainly not the hangovers after.  i work hard to keep my body in shape, its not worth polluting my body with that (for lack of a better word, not trying to be condescending), not to mention the exhorbitant amounts of cash that people spend on it.  it may sound lame, but at my school theres some good pickup soccer games til midights, so i hit that up rather than get wasted with everyne else

Yeah, I understand it's not supposed to taste great.  But I also don't like feeling or being drunk.  What am I supposed to like then?
