I hate to go to parties and wouldn't usually but I am obligated somewhat to do so.
The 20-30 somethings out number us 40-50 age blokes smile

As the booze continues to flow they all become world shockers and if it ever went down they did it or were there...........
Its amusing and sad at the same time.......

A good reason not to drink...... not that I'm upset at those who do but I can imagine if you taped the party and made them watch it- they may end some of the foolishness...

I'd rather have a few drinks is with 3-4 good friends than go to a typical party. I don't drink a lot but when I do I think about each drink and if I start to lose track of what I've had I known to stop. Then you watch the others make fools of themselves!

Its been several years since I had a drink and I do not miss it. Better health, save $$ and no worries if I have had too many to drive.

And when I see someone being a jerk who had too much to drink, I think, I was probably that guy a few times.

I gave up feeling "obligated" to attend anything, years ago. As for alcohol, we're idiots enough without fanning the flame.

Worst is when you are obligated to attend a wedding. I absolutely hate, hate, hate being dragged to a wedding that I don't want to go to.

Funerals I don't mind wife dragging me to attend... LOL smile

I'm not the type to get angry/overly foolish when I drink so the company I'm in never seems to be an issue.

I find I can easily control my intoxication by how I feel. if I'm not doing well, i usually stop (after 2-3 drinks) as my body can't handle it. I understand I'm a cheap drunk... always have been. I attribute it to an underdeveloped liver since I was born. I think it helps me to actually enjoy the taste of what I'm drinking (no cheap swill here!).

Anytime before that point I'm having a hoot! banana

so you have mixed feelings of not being "fun" anymore? okay, find a new hobby besides drinking.

I prefer to avoid both weddings and funerals if I can but at a funeral...there is at least one person that you don't HAVE TO talk to.

I don't drink at all-never did and its a family get together and not a drink fest.
I am the life of the party.... the others need to get blitzed just to have a conversation with anybody.

I dislike funerals but I have learned you need to attend. I usually do just the viewings if possible. If you don't attend you often don't remember these people are gone plus it's a respect thing. That said, I go and make sure the biggest gossips see me there and 5 minutes later I slip out.......

usually those types of people have a lot more issues with themselves than drinking. Alcohol just becomes the scapegoat

I see nothing wrong with alcohol. It's the abuse of it that can become an issue (just like any other substance you can over-indulge in).
