  • Not true. Your just being responsible. There's nothing wrong with not drinking and smoking you can still go out and have fun. It sounds to me that your friends are immature if they aren't inviting you out just because of that reason

  • Get different friends. I used to have the same problem until I found people more like me, who appreciated my choices and even shared them! Way more fun anyhow :)

  • You know it's also possible for one to be forgotten because they drink and smoke.

  • screw those people. Find the nerds and hang with them. Drunk people are generally fake and have too many issues, and smokers stink. Be yourself. Stay sober and don't let anyone change that. I am 22 and have been sober for 4 years now. I have new friends and have accomplished a lot more than my old ones.

  • Maybe they aren't really friends but just want drinking buddies?
    Or go out anyway, and make it clear that you are having an energetic good time regardless.

  • I agree with Tyger.
    If your friends don't ask you out to lunch or dinner or they just don't hang out, then it is abnormal. But when I want to go out and drink or smoke, I'm not exactly going to call my friends who don't smoke or drink.

  • um, well,
    i drink and stuff with my friends and when we dont invite our few friends who dont drink or smoke its not because we want to exclude them or punish them for not being "cool"
    its just because we know they wont have fun if they are the only sober people there .
    and its not fun to be fucked up around sober people because it makes you feel judged.

    if you dont want to party,
    then dont be surprised when you dont get invited to parties.

  • No offense, but your friends sound awful. And I know this is corny, but they should like you for who you are. Besides, don't they realize that if you, a non-drinker, went with them they wouldn't risk getting a DUI?

  • No that's not normal I don't drink nor do I smoke or anything like that and I have many friends that do and they still invite me places and love me so idk what's going on with ur "friends." Trying not to be mean I'm just saying..
