First of all you need to know the difference between Sikhs and Punjabis. Sikhs are a faith, religion having certain fixed religious practices like any other organized religion on this Earth which each and every Sikh ought to follow but Punjabi is a language. Any person be it Sikh, Hindu, Moslem, Christan, or even Jain who hails from the Indian Province of Punjab or the Pakistani Province of Punjab is referred to as a Punjabi.

Majority of the Sikhs living in the world are Punjabis but that doesn't mean each and every Sikh in the world is a Punjabi. There is a small percentage of Sikhs in India and abroad too who are non-Punjabis.

Now, to your question of going to parties and alcohol. There is nothing wrong in going to parties but yes, Sikhism strictly prohibits Sikhs from taking alcohol and party drugs. A true Sikh must be completely Keshadhari having uncut bodily hairs from Top to Toe of his/her body.

I think you were trying to ask why some people party, some people drink, some people cut their hair? Why some people do things and others don't is just entirely subjective- it can be whatever reason. I think there are a lot of factors like peer pressure, the type of people we grow up with, family influences, etc. and then popular culture, what you think will give you happiness and pleasure, etc. So people do a lot of things to experience pleasure. Kaal pulls us in and keeps us entertained with the 5 thieves. A lot of people don't understand enough about Sikhi to know that, and to understand that that pleasures on this earth are temporary and we should be seeking connection to God. There is nothing wrong with enjoying this life- traveling, socializing or parties in themselves as "Not at all Punjabi" pointed out! But its a different way of looking at it when you understand there's more to life and life is not JUST about what's on this earth. And i guess partying is a lot different when alcohol is involved anyways.
