    Just don't go up to a random person and start with "Hey! I'm drinking this here Jack 'n Coca-Cola, sure is mighty tasty and is gettin' me hammered!" or something to that effect.

    unless your an alcoholic, shouldnt be much of a problem drinking socially, its much easier to keep your friends off your back if you have a drink.

    if you really cant handle that, tell the bartender to pour you a coke, put it in a cocktail glass, and tell people its a jack and coke.


    I don't drink. At all. Never had a drop. Sorry.

    I don't feel comfortable pretending to either though.




    See I feel like if a person is a loner and has no friends to go out with to begin with.. it's like past the point of no return. Screwed.

    Not drinking isn't having a rigid attitude

    You are correct, not drinking does not necessarily imply that you are rigid. However refusing to go to a bar and drink even a glass of ice water (I have done this, there is no shame at all) while meeting people is pretty rigid. Also your lack self confidence and the especially your refusal to do anything about it is off putting as well. Gotta break out of your mold!

    thats what i was getting at.

    for example how objective he is to holding a coke that looks like a drink, awefully rigid. he seems like the kind of guy who would give you a lecture on drinking's effects at the bar.

    I feel so out of place just going to these places by myself though. People aren't usually very friendly it seems..

    I personally have a big problem with the alcohol culture.. you know how people take pictures of them holding a glass and put it on myspace.. like drinking just make syou such a cool person. It's that kind of pretending I don't want to exhibit.

    that is a good point. I hate people like that, especially at 15-17. Its not even about the drinking its about showing people you can. these are the same people who claim to be 'tanks' and can drink and drink when actaully they've only stole some beer from thier parents fridge on a half a dozen occasions.

    Why do you hate them? Thats what people 15-17 do, and it is a lot of fun when you are 15-17.

    Commit a crime and get yourself on the front page of your local newspaper.

    Chicks dig guys who kill people.

    He probably won't want those chicks since they are shallow and only want him for his crimes not his awkward social standing [​IMG]
