    To drink or not to drink?

    Gaaah this dilemma is getting worse..

    I hardly ever drink (alcohol), and usually I'm fine with the status quo.. I like being in control and believe it is healthier not to do so..

    But lately, after some severe feedback from Amy, I've realized how bloody boring I can get sometimes.. Even my parents are bemused at my lack of "letting myself go".. I like to think I'm good company, and I don't struggle when it comes to getting invited out.. But its always tough going when I'm not getting involved like everyone else, and I usually get bored myself..

    So, summer is here, can I wake up party after party, the only one without a sore head?

    Decisions decisions...

    Easy enough to wake-up without a sore head - just drink loads of water after the alcohol's gone down... and drink spirits not red wine and stacks of beer.

    I'd say it's a personal thing to be honest mate. Personally I don't drink or smoke and I never have. I'm 18 and I'm a strong believer that you don't have to have a drink in order to have a laugh and enjoy a night out.

    You should remember that you don't have to go out and get rat-arsed Rich, you could always just have a couple of beers. It may help you to loosen up a bit and relax while your out. It will probably help you get a bit more involved as well, you never know.

    Meh, who am I to give advice. I am the most boring 18 year-old ever. I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't do drugs and I hardly ever go out anymore...

    Just mix it up. I don't get drunk too often but I still enjoy having a drink and socialising. What I dread are the nights where everyone is just trying to get drunk. You either stay soberish and have a crap night or you wake up in the morning regretting being born and swearing never to drink again.
    I'm enjoying more and more just going to the pub for 3/4 pints and getting that pleasant glow without everyone having the urge to start doing shots or boat races. It's easier in Edinburgh as all the pubs shut at 1am normally.

    I'd say at 18 it's more interesting to be teetotal than to drink.

    & wish my SO would encourage me to drink more. That would be a v refreshing change!

    And don't ever get the idea that not smoking and not doing drugs is anything but a fantastic idea.

    Drinking doesn't nessecarilly(sp?) mean waking up with a sore head. That's drinking large amounts irresponsibly

    I'm yet to be impressed by the Lions supporters' singing so far this tour - it's been pretty non-existent to be fair. Do you know Freddie Parker at all?
