    Just want to stick up for alcohol a bit here, I drink a fair amount, I don't get totally hammered but I do like to get a bit tipsy, if you can handle your drink and not get sooo wrecked that you look like an idiot then it won't effect your game too much. Doesn't effect mine anyway. I may get ripped for this post but I don't see any harm in drinking as long as it is controlled and done sensibly. Everything in moderation fellas

    I think you can also try to be cocky/funny about it. This actually happened to me this weekend. I usually have a few drinks when I am out, but I am new to this and wanted to have a clear head to practice in the field. So I chose to be DD, and quickly split from the group of guys I was with to walk the lounge.

    I opened a total of 4 sets that night. 2 n-close with the targets. The first one went really bad but I learned what went wrong. After the opener the target immediately asked how come I am not drinking? Then I went AFC and explained myself (showing DLV)...so it went downhill from there.

    Second set, I actually took control of the conversation like an Alpha. After a light rapport building she SH1T tested me with the drink question...I ignored it and said:

    "How come you're drinking?" "TSK TSK, it must be true what they say beauty is empty....Tell me 3 things that would make me want to know you drunkie?" Huge smile on my face and she started qualifying. N-closed after.

    So I think it worked out okay. As I said I enjoy drinks, but I am a newbie, I need to be sharp in order to internalize all the material.

    I may get ripped for this post but I don't see any harm in drinking as long as it is controlled and done sensibly.

    Yeah, but you're English, aren't you, Linking? We can't do that sh*t in the US. That's too much personal responsibility.

    It's not the act of drinking itself, but rather the fact that we aren't "supposed to" until we're 21. Once you become of age most of the pressure dissipates (though not all). I put "supposed to" in quotes because it's a joke. Professors, the police, even our parents don't ACTUALLY expect us not to drink in college, and THAT, my friend, is problem that goes much bigger than pickup. That...is sad. I know cops who avoid underage drinking just because they don't want to have to punish the kids--because they are kids--accordingly. ...?!

    I didn't drink underage because I didn't want to f*ck over my life, then on my 21st everyone asked if I wanted to go out. Nope, I wasn't feeling it. I spent it with friends playing Mario Kart Wii and eating waffles (with chocolate milk, of course). Oh, and having birthday sex three times with two different girls (respectively. I'm not about that, lol), but that's beside the point. The point is I see these dudes, underage or not, drinking for all the wrong reasons. The underage-ers do it because they think they're fighting the system or something, which just makes me think of teenage boys listening to A Day To Remember thinking they're so bad ass (themselves, that is. Not ADTR. I actually like ADTR when I'm going through my occasional screamo phases). Cool. Good job, guys. Way to stick it to The Man. Those who binge drink overage, well, first they're just continuing to give into social pressure, and second they just need to grow the f*ck up. One day they wake up at 25 and realize they've been acting like they're 14 since...they were 14.

    You're right. Drink if you want to drink and drink if you can control yourself, but don't drink because you're giving into the social pressure. Be an alpha and fight the tide. Having social inhibitions isn't a very alpha trait. It goes under the list of irrational fears. When people offer you a beer, politely say no thank you, then proceed by offering them some of your chocolate milk. It's true that doing all of this will hurt your chances at pulling some girls, but forget them. YOu don't want to pull those girls anyway. You'll be able to pull the ones that matter, which will be higher quality because you stood up for what you believe in.
    Wondering where I am now? Check out my latest project:

    Lol, to be fair when I was like 14 I done all that shit with drinking cus 'it's 'ard' etc and tbh pick up changed my view, I stopped drinking to the point of being utterly outer control and grew the fuck up. Now I enjoy myself but I'm always in control of myself, and tbh I think in England at university even moderating drink like I do is nearly as weird to people as not doing it at all, I won't give in to shouts of 'down it' ' see it off' or drinking games that require you to drink loads just cus everyone else says to do so. I just thought that someone should stick up for those of us who like to drink and do so responsibly

    yeah that's what my post was about, in Australia it's 18 (i'm 21 now) to drink here, i had a few benders and wasted myself a few times but now i find it lame cause of the setbacks, and my mates still want me to come drink, to which i really can't be fqked doing, and more often than not when i go out i get pressured, i don't cave though
