My problem is i think i will have one and then go on a bender for three days! so no me and alcohol are through, but this situation is worrying me, am I strong enough? its christmas, not the greatest time to stop.. but then is there ever a right time?
There will be dancing, which I love but only when i have had a drink... mm not sure i can handle the feet that wont move!!
Any ideas would be much appreciated!!
My suggestion would be to make sure to eat before going. Then maybe to drink the non alcoholic stuff there. If they do not have any and you think they won't bring your own. Say when they ask that you are driving or that you are going to another part after and really don't want to have that much to early. That works for me. I went last year to a Christmas party at work and OH went with me. He drank so I didn't. I will not drink and drive and will not drive with anyone who is. I went through a windshield of a car once with my boyfriend in high school driving drunk and it is no fun. Anyhow, it was easy for me to just get soda and I said I was driving and no one even questioned it. It all went good. It really depends on planning and sticking to the plan. You could do it if you really stuck to it and made a plan. You will most likely want to leave a bit early. It was funny watching them all drunk and when I went to work that Monday they all felt like idiots and I didn't. HaHaHa.
