In my familly it was not a "taboo" to taste an alcohol, and in the hot days the water with a splash of sweet red wine (homemade) was "just a drink".
When I was 10-13 - it was no problem to have small sample "just to taste" of everything that was on the table, and this includes some alcohol too.
In my late "teens" it was normal that during the family gatherings I drank one or two glasses of wine, or small glass of vodka, or something like this (when I wanted, and it was not at every occasion).
The result was - when I was in the high school, and my friends were heavy drinking, "enjoying the forbiden pleasure"... I was always sober. Because for me it was not "forbiden fruit".
And it is like that until today - I don't fancy in "drinking".
Yes I'm not an abstinent, but what I like is for example a dash of brandy in coffee (once or twice a week), or a beer/wine with my friends sometimes (once in a month maybe).
But I never get drunk. It is no fun for me :)
