      Drinking and Hanging out with the Fellas

      I love to go play pool but it sucks that there is not much else to drink in pool halls...I do usually get coffee at bars. (Been trying to moderate for a while.)

      Drinking and Hanging out with the Fellas

      For me when I went 30 days...I went to a bar a few times..once with a very good old friend so me drinking tonic water or coors NA to him was like a blessing. The other time couple times I stopped in the local watering hole to BS with you all know em the guys you know but dont know..the bar guys. I drank coors NA...LOL I know the macho guy thing...I started getting self concious thinking everyone is staring at my bottle..one guy I knew was like whats up with the NA you cutting back...I was yeah a little and i'm driving and then told him how a good friend of mine just got his 4th dwi and is on house arrest and it scared the shit out of me.

      I cant stand going into a bar and not drinking, I simply dont have the patience for the bullshit that you have to deal with regarding the intoxicated folks, even if they are/were your drinking buddies.I have to be on the same page as the others.

      If I have a special party to attend and dont want to drink, I wont be staying very long.

      I agree with billyjack - it is testing to have to listen to the utter shite that comes out of people's mouths when they are drinking.

      Sure, it's OK to stay for the first beer or two, but after that it just gets ridiculous and it is not worth losing sleep staying around.

      Plus, the pubs and bars absolutely reek of vinegar and spilled whatever on the carpet.

      As for not drinking at family get togethers, hell, every male drinks to excess so I will definitely stand out being sober. But it will be something for me to be proud of, especially as most of them will not believe I am still not drinking...

      "You STILL not drinking?" they say each time I see them. It is slowly sinking in that I can do it, and maybe they can too. (In some parts of my family alcohol is not even counted as a drug if you know what I mean.)

      So be strong and just put it out there, it's a bit like coming out of the alcoholic closet I guess.

      Drinking and Hanging out with the Fellas

      It's not so much not drinking in bars, it's not drinking around my girlfriend's family. She's Irish and Catholic (please guys I love her) and her entire family of 8 brothers and sisters loves to party. Her parents don't think anything of having 50 people over for any reason at the drop of a hat.

      When I'm not drinking I just tell them that I'm watching my diet again, which is true and they leave me alone. Sometimes I even drive one of them home if necessary, makes me feel good.

      Be well, B-45

      Didn't mean to show disrespect to Irish people with my second post ever, so I apologize. It's just that my girl's family seems to have a lot of people who don't appear to be affected by the demon Alcohol that has stalked me all my life.

      Be well, B-45

      I dont think you disrespected any one, in Ireland we do drink a lot and its not a healthy way to drink. I would bet if you looked closely at the drinking habits of your girl friend's family you will be able to spot a few alkies there, maybe it just me but i see people with drink problems everywhere
