I don't drink alcohol because a) I hate the taste and b) I don't like being drunk or dizzy. But oh boy, have you ever tried not drinking alcohol when you're with people? First, they think you're kidding. Then, they ask a ton of questions about why you are not drinking and try to convince you to do drink. They never stop trying. I have actually told people that I'm muslim or pregnant or an recovering alcoholic so they would stop pressuring me. And adults say that peer pressure is just a teenager thing.
