To not like alcohol.

I don't like the taste of any alcohol, therefore I don't drink any. It's not for religious or health reasons I just dislike it all. I would rather have a brew. My family always despaired of me! They all like a big glass of wine. I always remember my Grandpa trying to get me to drink his beer, and not liking it at all.

squeakytoy, I don't like fizzy drinks, the taste of wine or the taste of beer. Vodka has no taste and the kiddy sweet cocktails are ok - but I see no reason to bother, expensive and sugary. So I am always happy to be the driver. I don't mind others drinking, I don't associate with the boring types who can't hold it so that's not an issue.

I eat virtually anything so I'm not fussy - there's always water.

It is a bit hard work sometimes as people discreetly ask 'do you have a problem?' I am too old now to be asked if I am pregnant!

YANBU but I do like the cannabis leaf on the brew people are offering you grin

YANBU neither my DDad or DSIL do.

I got a big grin off my dad when I slipped to the bar at a wedding for juice for DD2 and passed him a glass of Coke. He hates champagne. (It was not wasted, my 14y DD1 drank it blush, well little blush I've been drinking my DDad's wine at such things since I was that age too).

Oops wheredidiputit was meant to be highlighted not crossed out!

That's what I feel like sometimes wheredidiputit people do sometimes think I'm odd when I don't want to drink, like I'm not normal.

I don't either, have tried to enjoy a glass of wine but really don't like the taste.
Im so unused to alcohol now if I drink a toast at a celebration I immediately feel the effect of it.
It is a plus when trying to loose weight.

I agree Kasterborous.

I have tried loads of different to me it all tastes harsh for want of a better word.

I happy to be the driver. But I hate when people I'm with seem to think it wrong that I don't want to drink. I also don't like to drink that much of an evening so I may only have one drink, two at the most.

squeaky to me, everything tastes the same ... Wine, beer, spirits. It all tastes bitter and nasty. I do drink occassionally but only white wine + lemonade, Archers + lots of lemonade or Rekorderlig summer fruits cider. Basically super sweet stuff.

Boredom. I know everyone doesn't like something but I thought most people like alcohol.

Of course you're not being unreasonable to not like it. Different people like different things.

Some people don't like fish, or olives, or chocolate, or cheese.

As bizarre as it may seem to me that someone might not like cheese, some people don't. There's no question of reasonableness.

YANBU

What prompted you to post this as an AIBU thread OP?

complexnumber Fri 12-Apr-13 16:52:40

Of course you rnbu!

Just rather wierd smile.

Bollocks, I have tasted many different alcoholic drinks over the years and I have yet to find one I don't like!

Op each to their own. Why should you drink if you don't want to and not being rude who would actually care?

CaptainSweatPants Fri 12-Apr-13 16:48:15

Oh just realised this is in aibu

Yes you are wink

JamEyelid Fri 12-Apr-13 16:48:08

The only alcohol I drink is vodka and lots of orange so you can't really taste it.

CaptainSweatPants Fri 12-Apr-13 16:47:31

Not sure what the point of the thread is

I don't like cheese but I can't think why I would start a thread stating it grin

Tortington Fri 12-Apr-13 16:43:25

the taste, is secondary. <shakes head in disgust...looks you up and down, and walks away>

FrustratedSycamoresRocks Fri 12-Apr-13 16:41:12

See I like some alcohol, but I don't like being drunk, or even tipsy, so I tend not to drink it. A cool glass of coke is much nicer IMO.
it does take alot of drinking to find one that you do like

Willow36 Fri 12-Apr-13 16:40:36

I really wish I didn't like alcohol.

marzipananimal Fri 12-Apr-13 16:39:43

I don't like it much either although I'll sometimes have a small drink, so YANBU

Kasterborous Fri 12-Apr-13 16:38:16

I'm not saying there is anything wrong with liking alcohol at all, I sometimes wish I did like some. I'm not trying to be virtuous I make up for not drinking by eating chocolate grin

Why is it frustrating to say that people don't like the taste of any alcohol,Squeaky? I really don't like any of it,though will occasionally put a small amount of wine in a stew or casserole.
No matter what it's paired with,or if it's in the form of beer,wine or spirits I can still taste the ethanol in it,and that's what I hate.

I have tried lots of different alcohol over the years squeakytoy and haven't found any I like.
