Say no to alcoholic drinks
Now that the sun shows itself regularly, corona is in the background for a while and the May holiday is approaching, you go out more. And that might include a glass of wine or something. Because fun should be celebrated. But suppose you have just had a nice break. And you don't plan on going too fast. How do you (regularly) say 'no' to alcoholic drinks and still keep it cozy?
Tip 1: Tell a friend
To avoid feeling embarrassed during your meet up it is wise to inform at least a friend about your alcohol break. This confidant can support you when someone offers/forces you a drink.
Tip 2: Tell everyone
Do not inform just one person, but share it with the whole 'group'. If everyone knows about your break then it is also clear to everyone. No alcohol for you this time.
Tip 3: Share your motifs
If you feel the need to, tell them why you are temporarily not drinking. That's okay. Nothing to be ashamed of. If you find that difficult because things are sensitive, then a good 'excuse' will also suffice.
-Don't feel like a headache
-Can't handle it anymore
- Have a nice workout tomorrow
That you temporarily don't want to drink is not something you have to hide. It is actually something to be proud of. What a healthy choice of you. In addition, friends support each other, if all goes well, through thick and thin. It would be weird if a friend forces you to do something you don't want. And luckily there is more than alcohol that binds you.
Opinions are divided about the fact that nothing can beat an alcoholic thirst quencher. You can also find that bite and kick that you appreciate so much in other (non-alcoholic) drinks.
