Hi. Trust me, drinking doesn't lead to anything good. You will see some of these friends will actually develop a dependancy on alcohol! Just focus on your life goals and stick to your guns and don't drink! If your friends don't understand then they were NOT real friends anyway. A real friend would support and resecpt your choices to NOT drink! This is the truth. Alcohol has ruined millions of families accross America! My father died of liver failure due to alcohol abuse. Its so very sad! Stick with your choice not to drink! Don't worry about what "others" are doing! You will be much happier in the long run! I wiah you the very best! Stay strong and trust God can see you through any situation! You will have a bright future ahead of you!

Ah, yes, peer pressure! The only time to play "follow the leader" is when you're the leader. Stay the way you are … you will probably be the only one of your gang to visit the other clowns when they're in rehab or prison. There is nothing wrong with abstaining from vices but if the wild ones want to take you down with them, it's time for new friends who can have good times with YOU instead of their bottles.

I don't drink either. I didn't before I was diagnosed with diabetes. Doesn't bother be to be around people who are drinking. I jest can't take drunks.
