Sometimes I just don't want to drink but my friends insist so much that I always end up having a drink or two with them. I just can't say no to them, but I think this is a problem. How to make them understand but not hurt their feelings?
Insist on making your OWN drink...and just drink tonic water, soda or coke and put a lemon or lime on the rim. Then act crazy...out of control...be loud and obnoxious like the rest of them. They'll never know.
Either that...or just tell them you don't need to drink to have fun. OR...you can tell them you"ll be the designated driver for the drinkers when it's time to go home.
Sometimes you have to say no for your own good. If they really your friends they will understand you.
first of all ask yourself do i have a problem with drinking? if the answer is yes then you need new friends that don't drink! if they were really your friend then they would respect your wish about drinking and not put you in that situation.
I don't know and ,but r these work buddies or guys u grew with? I ask because if there ur growing up friends or work buddies ? Growing up friends , at least with mine , They would or should from the get go know that u have a limit . As for ur buddies at work , tell them too. not nasty or shit just i have limits . true friends and moral friends will be cool ! Good luck.
