    How Will I Answer When Asked Why I Don't Drink?

    I got to giggling when I thought about what my answer dance might look like! Can anyone relate?

    I can't drink a little, therefore I don't drink at all.

    I like how my brother-in-law (who is not an alcoholic) naively (?) responds when someone offers him a drink:

    "No thanks I'm good!"

    As if it is quite obvious nobody would want a drink unless he or she was not feeling good.

    I guess the same way a diabetic answers when he is offered a candy...

    Interpretive dance tickled my funny bone. I just might try that...

    Speaking of interpretation, during one of my sober summer days I landed in a waterside bar buying cocktails for our group. After the bill was paid, the bartender asked what I would like.
    I answered him something like this. "Nothing for me. If you felt like I do today, you wouldn't want a drink either"

    I got a wry grin and a knowing nod of the head. I'll never know if they thought I was too polluted from the night before or they understood I was really saying I feel too good being happily sober to mess it up by drinking at ten in the morning.

    In the end, no one really cares if you just say no thank you and go on your way.

    I just say 'no thanks, I don't drink'. Turns out most people don't care and those who do likely have some questions about their own drinking habits.
