Why do normies get so mad when you tell them you don't drink?
Alcohol tastes like shit, is expensive and anyone who's drunk from my experience turns into an obnoxious jerk. Why is it so surprising that I wouldn't want to partake in this? People tell me I should drink with them cause its fun, but if you need to get drunk to have fun then you just aren't a very fun person to begin with.
I also don't like alcohol: expensive and makes me tired.
But it seems to be the socially acceptable way for men to spend time with each other. Like, somehow you can't go eat Pizza or ice cream with another man. You may only go out and drink alcohol together with another man.
I don't drink often but a moderate amount of alcohol has its place in certain situations. it gets me out of my own head and lets me just enjoy the moment instead of overthinking everything.
Because it means that you don't comply with their moronic social conventions.
Saying you don't drink is a form of rejecting normie society, it sets you apart from the crowd and thus makes you a viable target for antagonism.
they get mad because they get on the defensive thinking you are judging them for drinking. which you are. my advice is to try not to associate with heavy drinkers. they are toxic degenerates
>alcohol tastes BAD
fucking obviously. people don't drink it for the taste except those faggy craft beer people, or rich people and their wines.
Anyone who says they don't drink alcohol because it tastes bad is looked down on by anyone who's ever drank. Just makes you look like an idiot. All alcohol tastes like shit. You power through it, chase it, or mix it to make it palatable to your faggot taste buds.
alcohol's a socially acceptable coping mechanism, it's escapism from being able to think straight
to say you dont drink alcohol to them sounds like you're saying you're better than them and never get depressed when you're alone or anxious when you're socializing or ever want to escape your life
same reason religious people freak out at atheists, stoners need to make it a major part of their identity and everyone has a chimp out if someone says they're asexual worse than saying you're gay, they interpret it as you saying you're free from vices that they rely on for escapism
they've done experiments where they leave someone sitting alone in a dark room for 15 minutes with only their thoughts to keep them company, but they are also given a button that will electrocute them a bit whenever they press it and something like 70% of people kept hitting the button because they'd rather literally suffer pain than not have an escape from introspection
this is the true face of the so called healthy and happy normalfag
An $8 bottle of Old Crow will get you fucked up two or three times, depending on your tolerance.
That's about the cost of a 'Meal Deal' at Taco Bell per event.
That's the reason alcohol is such a popular drug. It's the cheapest way to get shit in your brain.
>You have to drink this stagnant water which has had farting microbes and rotting plants in it AS IS and if you flavor it in any way that makes it less unpleasant to drink you are either a gay or a woman.
>The only way you are allowed to circumvent this is if you pay more for a bottle that has been stagnant for decades longer or has slightly nicer rotten plant material in it.
Alcohol culture folks.

That's gotta be the most pathetic thing I've read in a while. Reminds me how normies always have to say or do something in quiet settings cause they fear silence cause its "awkward". I just don't understand it.
In the house in which I live right now, I got to have the nice little suite in which I get two rooms, one of which helps me further isolate myself despite having to live with other people.
The catch is that my bedroom has a little vent straight to the bathroom. Several times I've been kept awake by people heaving when my cohabitants have had parties. I just cannot imagine how that could be anyone's idea of a good time. Puking fucking sucks.
They're not mad about the fact you don't drink, they're reacting to the po-faced attitude that people like you always have about not drinking.
And the fact that you're uptight, cheap, boring, and trying to apply logic to something as ridiculous as letting loose and getting drunk.
i'm never drinking ever again. all it does is make me gain weight, feel like shit for extended periods of time and dehydrate my body.
i just lost 10 lbs of summer weight just by not drinking.
my metabolism is too much for drinking. i drink one thing and i instantly am hungry, i stay drunk for like 1 hour until i have a raging headache and need to consume food non-stop, then i get sober and the cycle endlessly repeats until i passout from high blood sugar or intoxication. happens 9 out of 10 times.
>Non drinkers are judging and hate and or treat you like shit for drinking
Pretty sure you're judging us right now for not drinking and you're clearly all mad for saying i don't drink nothing added just as simple as that. You're doing some mighty high judging yourself there guys. Might want to take you're own advice.
>" the fact that you're uptight, cheap, boring, and trying to apply logic to something as ridiculous as letting loose and getting drunk."
>"Most people who don't drink are:
>- tightwads scared of losing control for even a second
>None are too fun at a party."
Yes, they did, and if you can't see that, then you must be drunk.
Robot social drinking advice from someone who used to have the exact same thinking as OP.
Advice only applies if you have a hard time socializing at parties.
It's a great way to loosen up if you're the quiet type. Just drink a little bit so you aren't tipsy, but just starting to be. I used to be like you, then I started just grabbing a glass of jack and I'd work on it for like a whole hour or two. When I started building tolerance I'd do a shot or two too (which also helps with looking cool or something for some reason) and I'd be the prefect amount of loose.
The people who are way drunker than you look like assholes, and the alcohol will help you socialize.
This also leads to situations where you'll end up hanging out with whatever girl isn't drinking that much like you.
Give it a try, and remember you rather under drink than over drink so take it slow.
I don't know. One dude I know loves to drink and he keeps telling me how he wants to get me drunk and meet me to go bar hopping.
Both of my parents were alcoholics though and that worries me. I have no desire to drink because of them and the smell alone makes me feel bad.
One guy I know loves to drink but when he's drunk all he does is be depressed and alienate his friends. He then complains about his friends hating him and being depressed when its a result of the alcohol, but then keeps on drinking anyways. I don't know why people put themselves in places like this.
He's depressed so he drinks, he's fine for a bit then gets that one drink that puts him over the edge into depression again, wakes up, regrets his actions, drinks more to deal with it, people get fed up, he gets more depressed at what a fuckup he is and starts pushing people away because he's embarrassed and drinking more because it's all he can do to make it go away for even a little while
And then a decade goes by and he's posting this at 1:45 AM on a Friday night
>mfw you just described me to a T
What the fuck am I doing with my life...
Alcohol is a shit tier drug. It's only fun in moderate doses.
Psychedelics are where it's at. Opiates and amphetamine are a close second.
Even caffeine and nicotine are more enjoyable than alcohol imo.
If you can pull it off, just tell people you're an angry drunk and you'd enjoy yourself more sober. Worked pretty well for me, but then I am a pretty big guy that people seem to find intimidating, despite the fact I'm one of the least violent people among my peers. Some people won't trust you if you don't drink, because they know you're sharp while they're slow.
I don't know, I'd say weed and angel dust are equivalent to alcohol in the price department. Dust may have an even better cost:effectiveness thing going on, because it's fucking bonkers.
My 2 cents: The only psychoactive less desirable than alcohol is DXM.
>be me hanging with my neighbor (normie) and his friends
>ask me hey anon do you drink
>no I don't, I don't like alcohol
>one of the female friend pops up
>you don't like alcohol, you're not my friend
by the way she was hot, but in the back in my mind i was thinking
>bitch I didn't ask to be your friend
>that face when alcohol gets you pussy, but you don't drink
> if you need to get drunk to have fun then you just aren't a very fun person to begin with.
If someone isn't very fun, alcohol makes them more fun, and that is a positive thing for all involved. There's nothing wrong with that, people aren't in the wrong for benefiting from a social lubricant. I'm not sure why you think this is a definitive winning argument for your attitude, god forbid people need a little extra help to be talkative and lose their inhibitions. Can you claim yourself to be perfectly socially adept, so you have the right to look down on people who aren't the life of the party fully sober?
>you just aren't a very fun person to begin with.
Welcome to /r9k/, I'll be your guide.
agreed so hard
haven't tried amphetamine but I can picture it being pretty good, I find caffeine fun as hell
I don't know anyone who would get mad at a person for not drinking, unless that individual went off on an unnecessary tangent about why they're "superior" for not liking alcohol. I used to get drunk almost every night of the week, and now I avoid drinks like the plague.
Nobody really gives two shits. Plenty of people don't drink, or drink but don't get drunk, and it's not a problem for most.
>stoners need to make it a major part of their identity
Nah just assholes do that.
I smoke tons of weed but if you know me in real life I never even mention it. I offer to share and if someone says they don't smoke I'm cool with it and don't try to STIMULATE THEIR MIIIIND MAAAAAN.
What people do with their body and mind isn't my business.
Mostly correct op.
I do agree there is a lot of unnecessary hate for nondrinkers around today. However:
>alcohol tastes like shit
Correct. Its not the correct reason to refuse alcohol though. All alcohol is bad tasting. If you hate alcohol just because you dislike the taste then people will automatically assume you are a pussy.
>People tell me I should drink with them cause its fun, but if you need to get drunk to have fun then you just aren't a very fun person to begin with.
Pretty true. However, see >>24074399
I don't like it. It gives me liberal ideals, panic attacks, and takes away my motivation.
benzos are useful for mellowing out a bad trip. Otherwise, they are shit tier.
