I've never drunk a profile in my life.

I tried it once, but it left an unpleasant aftertaste.

The only options are “none,” “socially” and “often” on POF,

Where is the "anti-socially" option?

I'm puzzled when people say they need to drink to have fun.

I'm silly enough without drinking. Just read some of my posts.

I don't drink. Never have. Never felt the need to "take it up" just to fit in and or "relax". Same with smoking. Even those funny little "mind altering" cigarettes.

However I know most folks do one or the other and it appears many women are at least "a glass of wine with dinner" types. And/or after dinner. Sure it would be great to find a woman who doesn't drink or smoke but that would cut my chances dramatically and I already have enough quirks as it is.

As far as a recovering alcoholic? I'd have to pass unless we were otherwise an exceptional match.

Smoking and drinking often go together and some people have addictive personalities, some need alcohol to relax and have fun. I have never felt the need. If a guy does anything to excess, then he is not for me. So be it.

I don't smoke, former social drinker, quit drinking 19 years ago. Not an alcoholic in recovery either. Too many assumptions.

I don't think 'don't drink' profiles mean the person is an alcoholic. Personally, I have 'do not drink' on my profile & I'm not an alcoholic nor do I have anyone in my fam who is. I suppose it's just as simple as I'm not interested in that, so I don't consume it. I don't have an issue if the other person drinks at all bc that is normal. I suppose I am the abnormal one haha.

Personally, I had a brother die from alcohol poisoning at the ripe old age of 24. He was an alcoholic. After my father died, my mother took up with one alcoholic after another. Usually they were abusive. After my mother dies when I was 11, I stayed away from alcohol and alcoholics. I still avoid them like the plague. As for drinking, I rarely drink. The above are my reasons.
