comment Is there a word or phrase for someone who strongly disapproves of smoking, drinking and gambling?
It does not mean what the OP is asking. My son and many of his friends are straight edge. They don't disapprove of these behaviours by others and regularly attend and host events where others drink alcohol, for example.

neat! Canadians are famous for this (What does a Canadian say when you step on their foot? Sorry!) and it's true, so it's nice to hear that it is true of others too.
