Some people make the decision to not drink alcohol and more power to them!
For the longest time, it seems like there has been this made-up societal rule that you need to drink to have fun. This may be the case for some people, but they're probably rather boring, to begin with!
While alcohol can be readily available in most social settings, that doesn’t mean all people want to drink it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with choosing not to drink alcohol, so don’t be afraid to laugh at these memes while the rest of your friends are nursing a nasty hangover. Enjoy!
That moment when you realize that alcohol is an evil genius
Drunk people are much easier to sneak up on. The Russians have picked their poison, and it’s vodka. While it is believed that alcohol consumption rates have decreased in Russia in recent years, they still are one of the top counties that consumes the most vodka.
Too much vodka will quickly knock you on your behind. Sorry, Russians, you lose this one.
The best way to stick out like a sore thumb in Miami
Miami is notorious for being a party city. There is a very active nightlife scene everywhere you turn. Havana, Cuba is believed to be the birthplace of the mojito, and with Miami being just a stone’s throw away, it’s an incredibly popular cocktail.
But this delicious blend of fresh lime juice, mint, and soda water is just as refreshing without the rum! If a Miami bartender gives you a stare like this, just go ahead and give one right back. Live your life, boo, and enjoy your no-jitos!
The quickest way to spark outrage amongst your group of friends
Anyone who doesn’t drink, or maybe decides to take a break from drinking, can relate to this. Saying these words to your bros or your girls might make them look at you as if you suddenly sprouted a third eyeball.
But, let’s be real. Your real friends shouldn’t give you a hard time for not wanting to drink. They might poke a little bit of fun at you, but warn them that if they keep it up that they can hold their own hair back once the night ends. Cheers to that!
Mocktail? We don’t know her
Who invited mocktail to this party? Some people just act so surprised when a restaurant or bar offers alcohol-free options.
Break the news to your buddy that mocktails don't necessarily have to even be listed on the menu. Almost any drink can be made a virgin. Diversity is important, right? Well, that includes a diversity of drink options!
Alcohol-free Saturday nights make for relaxing Sunday mornings
When you’re the sober friend, you can take photos and videos of your drunk friends doing embarrassing things and then laugh about it the next morning…or for life. Just remember - be thoughtful with who else you share it with, as that could lead to questions like "why did he block me?" at a later date!
Spend your Sunday morning blowing up your friends’ phones and then dig it up again years later to play at their wedding!
Choosing not to drink doesn't mean that you're not a fun person, remember that!
