I’m just on my lunch break enjoying a nice salad I threw together yesterday evening as I had nothing else prepared to bring to work.
I have had loads to do today at the office so time is just flying by! Can’t believe over half the day is already gone.
After work I am hopefully going to have time to go to the gym quickly before I meet up with some old colleagues tonight for drinks. I’ll be happily sipping away on water.
Before I used to really struggle with being the only one not drinking. Especially just sipping away on water as every other option is just too sugary!
There is a definite social aspect to drinking and it took a while to feel perfectly comfortable with saying no. Not that I must have alcohol but because of the pressure around it. Especially as a student!
If they really are your friends they will respect your decision not to drink. It is horrible that people should feel almost forced to drink even when they don’t want to.
I promise that is more in your head.
With that said, I do enjoy a drink once in a while but on my terms and when I feel like having it 🙂 How it should be!
