quicko: to drink or not to drink

As a non-drinker, I find this ... really unfortunate, but it seems that there is a very definite percentage of the Australian (generally male) population that feels it cannot go "out" without drinking.  Some would prefer to stay in than venture out and have to avoid alcohol.  I suppose there's probably a group for whom this is also true in America, but my impression is that it's a larger percentage of the population here.

You're probably right. Australia has a strong pub/bar sub-culture. It's extremely weird, but we tend to view with suspicion anyone who declares himself a non-drinker without a philosophical or medical reason.

I can't imagine why.
