I feel in a catch 22 because she doesn't seem to trust me as I am just staying in and not drinking and it is like she needs me to go out and prove I can drink sensibly but as you say it is like fire. Oh what to do.

You don't ask an alcoholic to drink sensibly.)

I will not get the best votes on this, but if the get-together means that much to you, then you can make up a story about why you are not drinking, but it is extremely early to be around alcohol. You can also call it off. I don't recommend giving the drinks a try, since you are stopping.
