    I'll drink socially, but I just don't find it all that exciting. I'd rather drink milk.

    You don't do it because it inhibits you from functioning @ 100%

    It's a depressant so it makes you feel "low." It slows your metabolism so you'll be fat. It attracts the wrong kind of people for you emotionally, etc etc
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    I drink, but I have never been drunk, and don't plan on being drunk, because

    1) The hangover is not worth it (and it keeps me from being productive the next day);
    2) I don't want to black out, for many reasons, including but not limited to the fact that I would like to remember it if I had a great time -- or if I did something embarrassing that I should apologize for; and
    3) You act like an idiot when you're drunk -- and people judge you for it. I have judged other people when they've been drunk, so I have no doubt that others would judge me the same way.

    I have friends who are teetotalers, and their reasons are similar, i.e. not wanting to lose control and regret it. (Discounting my ISTP friend, who doesn't drink, because she thinks drunk people are funnier when you're sober.)

    Edit: Unique Mixture has good reasons, too. Drinking isn't very good for you, and drinking buddies aren't often the best friends in the long run, especially when the drinking you do together is the type of drinking that ends with getting wasted and blacking out.

    One more thing:

    From the blog you created a while ago, here are some more reasons specific to you, for you not to drink:

    1) You seem to dislike it as much as you like it;
    2) You've shown a repeated interest in stopping, with weak/illogical reasons for starting up again, meaning you're unhealthily dependent on it; and
    3) It seems to be a pretty big part of your life, and I doubt that you want it to have taken over your life as much as it has.

    I don't drink it because I hate the taste and it just doesn't do much for me.
    The only real reasons why I would drink is to self medicate and/or get drunk. I have only done so every once in awhile.

    I don't drink because it doesn't really appeal to me and it could interfere with some of my meds.

    Unless you're a quiet drunk like Jamie Hyneman.
