I used to be uncomfortable at nevermo social occasions because I feared that declining alcohol would reveal my Mormon-ness. Because, you know, the WoW is such a huge part of Mormon identity, and the way we were taught made it seem like we were the only ones who didn't drink. But I learned there are all sorts of people who don't drink, and for all sorts of reasons. Saying, "No thanks, I don't drink," was just answered with, "Then might I offer you something else to drink?"
