Life has different meaning to different people . For some people drinking is life , for some it's enjoyment , some people drink because of piere pressure , some drink to numb their pain , some do to show off ..... For me drinking can be very rare or not at all , doing something that is harmful to our body cannot give us happiness at all .

Its a matter of choice and the ability to resist alcohol consumption. It also depends on our taste buds. Some people like the taste of alcoholic drinks and some don't. If its not your cup of tea, don't drink it. Its perfectly fine to dislike alcoholic drinks.

Not everyone loves to drink, there are many people who stay away from alcohol. Many people also pretend to like alcohol because they think it will make them look cool. It is perfectly ok to hate alcohol, you don't have to drink if you don't want to. Don't let anyone pressure you to drink when you don't want to.

Everyone has their own journey to face, and some handle it different from others. Drinking is a damaging habit that acts only as a temporary band-aid for what ever they may be going through. You may have healthier and more productive methods at your disposal, and that is wonderful! It shows a lot about your initiative. Just remember to lend an ear to those who drink. The issue may be a little deeper, and you may just be the one to help them out.

Everyone loves to drink because everyone loves to drink. It is a paradox of peer pressure. To me alcohol doesnt taste very good and what I have learned to do is whenever someone offers me a drink I say something like "I am the designated driver"

Hi I suppose it may be because either you have seen the effects alcohol addiction can have on peoples lives and that has put you off. Also it may be perhaps you dont see the attraction in going partying etc because everyone else is .

Drinking is not for everyone. Many people enjoy different things in life. Some enjoy it and some don't, everyone is different I guess that's just the way it is.

This is probably very personal to you. I can't say without meeting you why you don't like to drink. I definitely can say not everyone loves to drink and you might want to find more people like yourself who don't drink. You might have had a trauma involving alcohol or had a parent that was an alcoholic, I have no idea. Many people who do "love" to drink are actually covering up something inside they don't want to deal with, it's not an enviable thing. If you really just don't enjoy alcohol then there's nothing wrong with it and you don't have to change it.

Some people drink to forget bad things that have happened to them in their lifetime; however, if you're feeling pressured to drink then there is no way you should. If you don't like to do it, don't do it! It's as simple as saying no - and once you learn to say no, you can slowly start growing confident with yourself. It's normal to have personal dislikes and likes, it's really just up to your preference. But don't let anyone tell you that because you don't drink it makes you "uncool". If you don't want to or don't like it, then don't!

Well nothing wrong with that! It's just individual preferences. You may associate negative memories to it while others don't, or perhaps you just don't like the taste? Either ways, it's fine! Probably a good thing for you too in the long run.

Excellent question. Drinking alcohol is often a large part of social gatherings in our society. People may drink alcohol for a variety of reasons, and vary per person and per situation. Alcohol is a widely recognized social lubricant, so many people engage in it. It is completely understandable and valid that you hate it. We all enjoy different things; likewise, we dislike different things. You completely hating alcohol isn't a bad thing, I personally think this is a good thing. A lot of times, alcohol can lead us to make decisions that we wouldn't make sober, which can be dangerous. You have much more control over your actions and behaviors by not drinking alcohol!
