I don't drink alcohol so no it is not my choice.
Alcohol puts me to sleep and I used to try to drink so I did not feel "left out" when I was younger, however eventually gave up as I do not like the taste anyway.
I don't really consume alcoholic beverages frequently . My wife and her mom are good at making home made wines. I really prefer these to some of the other alcoholic beverages that are available on the market.
