One way, at least for directly clicking on the do file (in Windows), is to edit
the file association for Stata do files.

My Computer -> View -> Folder Options -> File Types -> edit Stata do file ->
edit open task -> then change the "Application used to perform action:" to
C:\Stata8\wsestata.exe /m1 do  %1 ,nostop

This will attach the -nostop- option to all do files that are opened by clicking
on them.
