I know exactly how you feel. I've always had to work in college to pay my own bills and it can be a challenge. I used to work in a bar which meant staying up to the wee hours of the morning and more than likely having drinks with coworkers afterward. It got so old, going to bed at 6am and class at 10:30 the next morning. I think it's normal to want some sort of routine and maybe something more exciting to look forward to than drinking all of the time. It can be lonely, but you are growing up and choosing to act like an adult, cheers!

I know how you feel. I have a bunch of friends my age but all they do is drink. I used to be over at their house almost every night drinking, but I've gotten to the point where I just don't like it anymore. Not to mention, my studies are really starting to take up most of my time. I'd be fine with all of this if I were alone, but my friends like to point out how boring I've become. I guess it's a right of passage to feel like a black sheep in college. It's just hard to deal with. Stay strong and stick to your guns. You'll live a healthier life that way.

I am 20 and live in a pretty awesome college town close to the beach... that I LOVE. But the only problem is, I do not have friends my age. The kids that live here do not have to work because their parents still front the bill and all the kids here do is eat out and drink beer all day everyday.
I cant do that anymore. That is why I gained thirty-forty pounds since I have moved here. Now as I strive to completely change my lifestyle towards a healthy more spiritual path I feel like I do not belong here. I feel like an old woman trying to establish a routine. But the truth is, I am happier this way.
