It came to my attention that "all" khmer should know how to drink.
I went to an after party after show and was offered a drink, of course i rejected it because i don't drink, I got some weird look but I didn't care. I grabbed a cup of juice instead. people asked me "isn't it hard not to drink since everyone around you is drinking?" I said "no, if you love yourself, you won't harm yourself just to please a crowd of people you don't really know".
I understand that a lot of people gave up because of peer pressure. For me, I couldn't even stand the smell of alcohol. My whole family don't drink, so i makes sense that i don't drink. It's hard for some people to believe that I dont drink at all because i go to a school that is not only known for basketball but also for drinking party.
I made a decision not to drink and i'm glad some people understand and respect my decision. Those who think i'm weird, we'll see who live longer.
