Me & Alcohol

I have been asked about reasons why I don't drink alcohol, so here it is.

As some of you might know, I'm a non-drinker, I don't drink alcohol. Why should I? To get hangovers, to get into fights, to don't remember what I've done? After spending New Year at center of Tampere, I saw once again why I chose to not drink: because there's many young people, barely standing up, talking about something random, and forgetting everything. What is use of that? I don't get it. 

You can call me weird all that you want, I pretty much am weird, being non-drinker at age of 21 in Finland, where every big holiday seems to only be a reason to get drunk. I don't really care if you drink or not, but you don't have to try to make me drink; I won't, no matter how much you push me, and also, why should you push me to drink? What do you lose if I don't drink? 

I can also say that some things in the past might have something to do with my decision, but I won't open them up here, you may ask elsewhere. 

My decision to not drink shouldn't matter to anyone in here. I am not against drinking, although I don't get the reason of getting overly drunk, because I don't get what you people get from that, being in unconscious state, and forgetting everything afterwards. I haven't lost anything in my life because of not drinking, and I won't lose anything. If you have problem with me not drinking, then you have; I won't change because of anyone else.

I have no reason to drink, and you have no reason to have a problem with that. I don't like overly drunk people, because I, and even them themselves, don't know what they might do. If you have anything else you want to know, just ask, you'll find me on social media. 


  1. Samaa mieltä, mä oon 22 ja en oo ikinä ollut örvelöhumalassa, ikinä sammunut tai oksentanut alkoholista. Miksi pitäisi? Miksi tuhlata kaikki rahat, nolata itsensä, lihottaa itseään, tuoda fyysisesti ja henkisesti huonon olon? En myöskään ymmärrä sitä. Minusta ne ovat outoja jotka eivät osaa pitää hauskaa ilman alkoholia

    1. Juuri näin. Kiva kuulla etten oo yksin tän kanssa :)
