MyStory: Living the sober life

I watch my friends fall down drunk

I am a sexy, confident 24-year-old lady. I’m an extrovert and I like going out to parties, nightclubs and bars. And guess what? I don’t drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes. And I definitely don’t do any kind of drug!

I don’t need to be high or drunk to have fun. Actually I, the sober one, always end up having more fun that my drunk friends. They always tell me to “drink so that I have more fun”. But they end up with the hangovers! Some have even thrown up or blacked out. How is that fun?

I am the one who ends up telling them stories of what happened and the fun I had, which is clearly more than theirs.

My friends call me the 'fruit juice girl' because I refuse to drink alcohol. Instead, I’ll be on the dance floor with a cool drink. I’ll chatting and dancing, having the best fun of my life.

I will never give in to pressure to drink!

Do you think you to drink to have fun? Underage drinking is illegal and dangerous. It often leads to risky behaviour like having sex without a condom. If you get drunk, you may also find yourself in a difficult or dangerous situation. Forget about drinking and focus on creating great memories with friends.
