    Default Is NOT drinking "uncool"?

    Hey guys!
    This is probably an unusual question, as most people drink and like doing it, however it is not my case as I don't drink due to the following reasons:
    1) I spent my early teenage years on the tennis courts training really hard to become a professional tennis player, while most of my school mates were starting to go out, drink and smoke.
    2) I really feel like drinking might affect my performance in tennis
    3) I actually don't enjoy it that much: I have more fun when I am sober, and everytime I drunk I just wanted to sleep and couldn't think clearly which is something that makes me feel nervous.
    4) After having to take care of my really drunk and puking friends, I am not attracted to alcohol at all
    5) My game is so much better when i am sober.

    So the thing is, I noticed that when people find out I dont drink they usually find it weird and "uncool".
    In night game I didnt care about it at all, as girls dont really care about it, even though some were really surprised. But on sunday I am moving to a college residence in Madrid and I am afraid of becoming the only freak on campus who doesnt drink, which might be really bad for my social proof.
    Of course I can act cool about it, but anyway people are gonna find it strange and will always try to get me drunk. And also some people thing that if you dont drink you are automatically boring. (or maybe im wrong?)

    I dont drink period unless out. I am not the drinking type and people call me out on it. What I do always is buy three drinks: One when I first enter the venue, a second one when I break away from a set of girls or wings and a final beer to close out my tab.

    I'm the "only freak on campus who doesn't drink" and I'm the f*cking man. You're the f*cking man too. It's a problem if you think it's a problem. Don't think it's a problem.

    I have always shown up to parties with chocolate milk (1 quart of it to be exact). People used to give me sh*t, and when they did I'd just reply, "Wait, you don't like chocolate milk?" And they thought I was the freak. Who the f*ck doesn't like chocolate milk?!?l I have two houses that keep a quart of chocolate milk on stock, specifically for me. I never asked them to, they just text me one day saying they bought me chocolate milk. So I walk in, open their fridge, and grab my milk.

    If you're worried it will hurt your social proof, BE the social proof. I'm high value and have a lot to offer at parties, just like you. If there's some chick there I don't know, everybody's like, "Cody, run the cube, run the cube!!!!!" Once you're on top, you call the shots. Chocolate milk becomes cool and alcohol is lame. I've had people come up to me and say, "I freaking love chocolate milk! Why don't I drink it at parties?" To which I reply, "Because you're a p*ssy." Then smile, and they laugh, even though I was only half joking. :P

    seeing as this thread pretty much died but it's really helpful for me, i'm going to hijack it

    most of my friends drink, and usually when we go clubbing or even to parties, i always drive - only cause i know that way i won't have to rely on people to take me home, i hate it. getting to the main point mostly every time this happens:

    mates: yo u drinking?
    me: nah, i'm driving (insert reason here)
    mates: man ur a p*ssy u never drink with us (**i only do on my birthday or one of my core mates birthdays if theyre drinking otherwise it's pointless to me)
    me: nah i really can't be fqked

    i always get the vibe that this lowers my value cause people drink alot where i am, i can go out and have a blast even when im sober, it's just i'm not sure if i'm handling this "alpha" like or manly in a sense, keep in mind im only 21 so people "expect" me to drink but i really can't be fqked, it sets me back about a week to rehydrate and get back to normal anyway, cause when i drink i get hammered badly otherwise its not worth it

    thoughts and opinions are appreciated, the above advice Cody has helped to an extent (y)

    Hey buddy,
    Don't let anyone change you. If you can have a blast without alcohol- good for you! Tell your mates this. Act how you see fit, it's an Alpha trait. People judge you on how you perceive yourself- if you believe that it's cool not to drink, then it's cool not to drink.

    "Because you're a p*ssy." Then smile, and they laugh

    Yeah Bro ill second Cody. I'm nineteen so I can't drink in the states. Never been a problem for me. I usually say "nah I don't drink, just dance" or something like that kinda jokingly. Just shows you don't need alcohol to have a good time, plus its a lot easier to game sober for me when everybody else is drunk. Its a huge advantage.
    If i get a guy some a$$, he gets it for a day; if i teach him how to get it for himself, he's tappin forever

    When I started this thread i was really worried about this. However when i arrived to college, i proved to everyone i dont need alcohol to have fun. Of course people think its strange that i dont drink, but as long as i act cool, its clearly not a DLV and sometimes it could even be a DHV, when most guys have to drink a lot to approach a girl, and i can approach any girl completely sober.

    Default Re: Is NOT drinking "uncool"?

    damn i haven't been online for quite a while now :P.. anyways, first of all listen to 'CODY' hes one of the best.. secondly.. i actually laughed.. hahah seriosuly chocolate milk :P?.. thirdly, even i dont drink (or only about 2-3 drinks in 4-6hour night out) [except maybe on a friends bday, unless im going to get him a 'SET' ;P)

    for lots of reasons..
    1) i go to gym 4/5days a week with a strict bodybuilding diet.. if i drink its ruined
    2) its kills your liver and sh1t inside you slowly.. plus it can cause diabetes
    3) after 3hrs drinking you will most probably be tired, looking like sht, most probably puking, and waste half of the remaining night out for you and the friends helping you.. [DLVing]
    4) you can get into fights more easily, your reflexes arent good, you will have bad breath, you will talk like any other drunk idiot and won't get any girl like that..(ruins your game)
    5) the next day its hangover day (dont like that)..

    you might think you are not cool since you do not drink.. and my friends tell me so aswell...but who gives a sh1t? its how you feel about yourself, and what you want..

    but you know what, girls actually find it pretty appealing, since it shows that i have a strong character, and i dont "give in" to peer pressure or do like everybody else, i dont need alcohol to talk to them, i respect myself more and im still more confident than 95% of the drunken people in the club..
    The Worst thing I can be is the same as everybody else. I'd Hate that!

    Tyler Durden and Julien from Real Social Dynamics, both don't drink. They are 2 of the best puas in the entire world. Julien actually suggests not to drink as you end up learning and retaining more. Also, use of alcohol will have a tendency to make you rely on it to go in "state".

    I drink when I go out, and I really wish my game was so solid that I didn't.

    Default Re: Is NOT drinking "uncool"?

    Haha, thanks guys. I should probably elaborate on a few things here since I wasn't very clear.

    I virtually never run night game in comparison to day game, but when I do have rules. Not a ton, just three, and for some ungodly reason dudes just can't get a grasp on them. This is also why I won't take dudes out for night game, because they piss and moan and just don't get it. It's ridiculously simple.

    1. Bring girls with you. They don't have to be hot, they just have to be girls...and they have to be fun. The "Why?" should be self-explanatory. I'm not going to get into it. I've said it a billion times--social proof and pre-selection. I won't let dudes hang out with me unless they bring girlS <--Got that from AFC Adam.

    2. Don't try to pick up girls. Seriously, the vibe you give off is pathetic when you do. They can all feel it and spook like deer. Then you throw a pissy fit when the scene sucks and...just don't try to pick up girls. It'll happen or it won't. It shouldn't matter.

    3. Have fun. If you go out with any other goal but this in mind your night is going to blow. Go ahead and try it. I learned the hard way. So f*ck everyone else at the party or the club and have fun for you. Entertain yourself, because realistically no one else matters.

    A few notes. I never pull drunk girls. They're drunk; sh*t can get ugly real fast. I'll n-close at best but barely ever even that. I take the girls with me that I wanted to enjoy the night with; the rest don't really matter.

    To which I reply, "Because you're a p*ssy." Then smile, and they laugh, even though I was only half joking. :P

    You've probably heard Tyler say not to laugh at your own jokes. While for the most part he's right, if it's too over the top (such as here) you're going to have to or they'll think you're a d1ck. The whole RSD team "struggles" with this, but they're all pretty extreme in their game. I'm a funny guy, of course I'm going to laugh at my own jokes sometimes. They're f*cking hilarious.

    In case you haven't noticed yet, I'm cocky/funny. The chocolate milk and stuff like that comes from a huge sense of entitlement and frame control. I'll end this post with a conversation that I had with Jenny yesterday showing that:

    Me: Yeah, but I can do anything I want because everybody likes me.

    Jenny: Cody! That's a huge lie! There are a ton of people who don't like you and probably even hate you.

    Me: Yeah? Like who?

    Jenny: Well, there was that one girl...

    Me: Yeah, but she's not anybody.

    Jenny: What do you mean?

    Me: If she was somebody then she'd be a part of everybody, but since she's not even anybody, she's nobody. Anybody who's somebody is a part of everybody. Everybody and anybody ELSE doesn't matter. Nobody likes them, not even their mom.

    Jenny: You're an idiot.

    Me: SAY THAT TO MY FACE!

    Jenny: You're an idiot. (Lol's to herself)

    Jenny and I: *Commence tickle fight while driving* Unsafe? Maybe, but definitely funny. As long as it's funny that's all that matters.
