There’s something about forcing people to drink after they’ve expressed that they either don’t want to or are practicing a tabu that is just so cringey!

Like what do you get out of forcing someone to do something they don’t want to do?

Do you hear yourself?

Personally, I see it as a win when someone doesn’t want to drink anymore. It just means there’s more for you!

I see this so many times when I’m carousing with friends and family and there’s someone that either has had enough or just didn’t want to participate in the consumption of whatever beverage we’re enjoying at the time.

There will always be that one person that will be trying to call them out saying that they’re weak and that they should just take at least one sip or that they should consider the fact that they’re with family and that they should just drink out of respect for everyone else being there.

It’s 2024. Release Fijians from the shackles of thinking that just because most of the people in the squad are drinking, doesn’t mean that it’s compulsory for EVERYONE in the squad to drink. Some people have the ability to have fun without alcohol being in their system.
