Thank You everyone for sharing your experiences!
I have had some pretty interesting experiences when i'm around people who are drinking. I actually got into a fight with a friend of a friend's a few years back because he was offended that I didn't accept a beer he was offering me. I politely declined but he didn't believe that I didn't drink alcohol and thought I had "beef" with him.
He was baffled that there were people around that didn't drink beer or any kind of alcohol that weren't either super religious or recovering alcoholics.
We turned out to be pretty good friends. (funny how that works)
