      Drinking and Hanging out with the Fellas

      Guys, you know how hard it is to abstain from drinking when you're hanging out with other guys, like male relatives. Any tips for this? Anyone here come from a background where it's not macho to not drink?

      Drinking and Hanging out with the Fellas

      By the time I did hang out with the guys, I was already sober a few years. I just made it a point that all of them knew I was not a drinker/doper and don't even try to tempt me or I'd shove that bottle/glass ect. up their ass. Sorta like being a Daddy of a lil' girl with that protect mode jumping into play when a dope dealing pimp speaks to my daughter, fucking guy is crab meat. I was always available for safe rides home and ate really good because that was my "fee". Cheapest/safest nights out them guys ever had, I'd be invited all the time, even with my hard ass attitude and taste for rib eye. It's just a drug......nothing more, nothing less.

      Drinking and Hanging out with the Fellas

      Hi All
      One way I have found to stop anyone from trying to influence me to have a beer is to tell them I am on medication and can't drink.I now have no desire to drink nor does anyone try to get me to drink but when I first stooped I found this necessary.Most drinking "buddies" don't want you to stop they want company in hanging out getting drunk.You are talking about relatives so they will most likely always be in your life .No one I hung with or relative would say common just have one when I used the I am on medication line.I told them i was on a blood thinner.Come up with some medication because they will ask.

      Stay Healthy and Keep Fighting

      Drinking and Hanging out with the Fellas

      it may it be he answer, but i simply told my two closest buddies that i had to quit drinking because i have a problem with it. i am very lucky, now that they know they don't offer me beer any more, and that makes it much easier. and i must say it is a lot of fun to hang out and watch them doing stupid things, instead of being the village idiot.

      Drinking and Hanging out with the Fellas

      I've done the same as Soldier. I simply informed my friend that I've been bad, and as a result I can't drink. I always have something in my hand, just not AL. I'm careful to bring my own NA stuff to events. Lately, too many friends join me and I run out of NA stuff. That pisses me off a bit.

      Drinking and Hanging out with the Fellas

      All my drinking was done in bars and 99% were with men who i knew for a very long time,i just stopped going to the bars & they think i am drinking somewhere else for some other reason. Anyway once they have there beer money they dont give a toss who is drinking & who is not i am sure they got over me not being there:H

      I used to say that I was allergic to alcohol. If any blokes asked what happened if I drank I replied simply.
      I end up in jail.
