I am a serial and consistent "notter"¹: I do not drink (alcohol or coffee), smoke, do any form of drugs, I'm a vegetarian, etc.
All of these things have been consistent for me for a decade or more.
I am ending up in situations, recently, where people have disbelieved my behavior and questioned it. And I frankly do not have good answers for why I made these choices, but by now they are just nature to me.
How can you be a notter when people are 'countering' you with questions you cannot answer?
I am a Dutch male in his mid-twenties recently moved from the Netherlands to England, with most of my currently developing circle consisting of secondary school teachers and IT developers ranging from my age to the low 50s. We live in a city but not one of the big ones.
