True Poles would never say that :)

that is a harmful stereotype. There are Polish people who never drink. I know many. With various reasons.

No offence intended. However, I find it odd that the Polish Duo team seems to put an effort into explicitly and deliberately countering known stereotypes.

none taken :). But knowing how to refuse is a good thing. (It's easier to say I can't drink, or I don't drink today, than saying no more after few shots.)

Why is it nigdy nie pijemy? Sounds like we never not drink.

Yup, it sounds so. Double negative is obligatory in Polish :)
