Uh, no. I don't like the taste of alcohol itself. Specially vodka. If I wanted to feel my throat burning I'd gargle more razorblades. Even when I did force myself to drink (mostly fruity drinks, which at least get to mask most of the taste of alcohol), it was absolutely no fun and I found out I don't need alcohol to talk to people. Simply put, I have more fun sober than drunk/stoned. And I don't like noisy environments or places with lots of people, so I don't go to loud parties where you usually find all three things straight-edge people don't like.
Am I boring? Granted, I wouldn't be your first choice to take to a rave. But give me something to rant about and I'll probably cause a few sides to split (specially if they're drunk or stoned!). I just like wit and wordplay too much to enjoy not caring about either.
I'm not sure how it is over there, but here people don't go out drinking harmlessly. They go to bars to get hammered.
Yeah, that's why my whole post talked about mixing it. You can get a pretty good buzz going without ever tasting the vodka given the mix I suggested above. I don't do the bar or party scene either, but I guess I enjoy things a lot more when inebriated, especially with just friends at a kickback People are different that way.
If you lose your wit and wordplay that much when drunk or high, then you might've done too much
Not trying to go demand you get shitfaced and high as a kite, buuuut trying to find a good balance could be worth it - Though it's probably not worth the money in general >.>
