english drinking

I am so fed up with the drinking culture here in the UK, it drives me mad!!! Why is there this constant banging pressure to drink yourself stupid every time you go out at night :?: :!: :?:

Why cant i go out, enjoy the company of my friends and drinks coke, or maybe one beer. I snapped today at some friends for constantly harassing me about not drinking, no dont get me wrong, they are good boys but my god it wore me down. I feel bad for letting myself snap and we made up after but i cant wait to emmigrate to some other country without this constant pressure.

Sorry for the rant, but this country sucks :shock:

Don't worry...its the same here in the good old USA...society has become so centered around alcohol and sex, it is disgusting honestly. I have very strong views on sex and with my DP and Depression can't drink, or at least am not supposed to. Why is it that we feel "weird" or out of place or wrong for ordering a coke or water at the bar? Why do we feel embarassed. Again, I blame society and the media. It sucks. And it's sad.
