Default I'm 19, and seem to have lost interest in alcohol and partying.

I don't understand the scene anymore. Chasing girls that just want to get drunk and find someone to hook up with. Seems that I like to think that I did my fair share of stupidity in my teens and the likes. I used to have the same mentality of anyone who drank. Can't do anything fun sober! Every weekend you're trying to find somewhere to get drunk and act stupid. It seems I have much better things to do then regretting the night before for the day coming. I live in a small house with 3 roomates for this semester and can drink as I wish, but haven't yet aside from some wine. It seems when I was younger I would talk about how much I would take advantage of the situation. Before I would ask my parents to buy me a beer/drink when out to dinner, but now I would think I might considering refusing it if they offered it. Don't get me wrong, if I had a get together with some friends and was just hanging out I might drink a bit, or maybe if I'm with family/family friends. I'm not saying I won't ever drink, just rare occasions. I'm an hour from Santa Barbara and 40 minutes from San Luis Obispo. I have a friend in SB that I can party with as I please. Last night my roomates went to SLO and I didn't feel like tagging along, if I do go I would probably just be a designated driver. It seemed typical from how the night was. " Just a buncha dudes, we were just hanging out in the parking lot of the parties most the time, so and so got drunk and was trying to start fights, so and so passed out in the car and pissed all over the floor in the bathroom." Obviously health is another factor. I've started working out and have been cycling for a while. I'd like to keep my endurance and slim tummy.

I know I just sacrificed my man card for the 4th time, but I just thought I would go on about my change in mentality. Yes I'm becoming an artsy-fartsy who can enjoy the beauty of life sober through other ways.

That's a big deal at such a young age. If you were 26 and saying that, it would be a bit different. On the other hand, I ran Div 1 track, so I didn't drink until I was 22.

its good that youre growing out of that childish behavior early.

Drinking is OK in moderation, as most things are. Most kids your age binge drink, and that is obviously not good.

That's why I'm kinda in shock. I spent the summer after senior year drunk almost everyday. " Let's go to the beach guys! ....drunk right? " etc etc. Of course that was every weekend junior/senior year as well. It slowed down a lot after highschool obviously though. I used to binge drink whenever I had the chance.

I was in a 2 year relationship that ended about 6 months ago. Any girl before that that I did anything sexual with I ended up dating. After that relationship I went through the slump. Soon after I hooked up with 4 different girls. Had sex with two of them. Everytime it was only once that I hooked up with them, one I did twice. Sure, it was fun for the spur the momment situation, but it just felt too weird. Obviously hooking up with girls after a 2 year relationship isn't easy. The first girl I hooked up with and had sex with was just too awkward. Did other things and once we had sex that was it. Obviously hormones might get the best of me in most situations.

Welcome to an adult decision. The only problem will be your peers not "getting it" and trying to make you feel dumb for some odd reason for not taking a drink. As if it some kind of offence not to get wasted. If you feel the need to defend yourself, you could try telling them about your informed adult decision - which they probably still won't understand, or you could just tell them "you are on medication" so you can't drink. Or you can just tell them to GFThemselves. Stay strong and congrats.

I'm 23 and I'm very nearly at that point; I still drink every weekend, it's just in moderation and not as excessive as it used to be. Doing the same thing over and over again, be it drinking or whatever, does start to lose its luster as time goes on.

Very true. I was sick of the whole getting wasted thing by 20-21. And to be honest I never really partied all that much to begin with. I still have friends that keep encouraging me to drink, otherwise I won't have fun.

I still drink, but not all the time and hardly ever to the point where I'll be sick that night or the next morning.

I have been that way my whole life. I have never been drunk in my life. I will go out and drink an occational beer with friends or gf....but go out to get trashed is not me at all.

Let me warn you...its hard to listen too the drink man, common have a beer.....I just shook my head and said no. It also makes dating A LOT harder...it seems in todays society every girl until she is 27 wants to go and get trashed at the bar....and you not being into that anymore will be looked at as a downer, or someone trying to tie her down.

There are up and down....

I was 20 when drinking became something I rarely did. Actually, my freshman year in college was the only time that I'd drink regularly. Now it has to be a special occasion for me to drink and I never even get close to getting drunk.

Now, I've all but quite going to parties this past year though. I just have zero motivation to hang out at someone's house for 4 hours while they all drink. My g/f started working weekend nights in the spring. Without her to keep my [sober] company at parties, I have no desire to go.

In other words, at 22, I'm already old.

Yeah if you're in college and you're not the partying, hook up type, it's certainly going to be a different experience from everyone else.

But I'm the same way, it's not my thing.

I think you may be a little young.

Once you are old enough get into bars and <oontz> clubs, you will renew your interest, gain some tastes and learn to know what you really like and dislike.

I'm 25 and I'm weaning off going out and getting ripped every weekend, but then again, all my freinds have settled down, leaving me no option.

I'm 21 and lost interest in going to parties and such to get hammered. Now I may go to a bar and have 3 or so drinks.

I have other stuff to do anyways.

Also, just think of how much this can help you in school.

House parties are extremely hit or miss. You either have the right attitude and people or you dont. As soon as you feel a house party going lame. Eject.

There is nothing wrong with having 3 drinks at a bar and leaving. You dont have to get ripped to have fun.
