Need a quick, simple response to "why aren't you drinking??"

Went to Vegas this weekend with some friends and decided not to drink. I still went to clubs and danced, was entertained and had fun, but was always stumped each time I was asked why I wasn't drinking.
My reason is that I knew we were going to be out late and I don't handle hangovers well at all. I'd rather be sober and exhausted the next day instead of hungover, nauseated AND exhausted the next day. This seemed hard to explain.
How can I put this into a bite-sized, acceptable answer? Any other clever lines I could use (true or not)?
