Kim Kardashian is no wallflower, but she's not out there getting repeatedly arrested or anything, either.

When asked during her appearance on The Tonight Show Tuesday how she avoids trouble like, er, some other young celebrities out there, the E! star credited her lack of taste for alcohol and, of course, her fellow Kardashians. 

Even if she did kinda throw Kourtney under the bus...

"Well, I've never really been a drinker," the multitasking celeb explained. "I've never gotten really—well, not really—I've never gotten into drugs. You know, I think I have such a close family..."

The audience finished her sentence for her with a round of applause.

"At a young age, you know, I think my sisters did enough drinking to kind of fill up the whole family," Kim added, "so I think from a young age, my dad made it very clear that, 'OK, you're the responsible one, you have to watch your sister.' (We're assuming she means Kourtney, considering Khloé would have been about 10.)

"And he taught me how to drive when I was 14 in case my sister or her friends were going to be drinking, and I had always had permission to drive, or else I had to call him from the destination to the final place...So I always felt this sense of pride that he had in me as the responsible one, so I've always wanted to make him proud.

"And," Kim added, "I hate the taste of alcohol."

"I did say that, at 30, I'm going to have a drink to lighten up because my sisters say I'm so boring," she continued. "So I tried a White Russian a few months ago...It tastes like chocolate milk, and it's kind of amazing."
