I don't think he really understands why I'm not drinking, but he did get a 'no thanks'. I think it took a while, but he's ok with it now.

I'm all for being s nice guy - I'm even ok with people pleasing sometimes - but not when it might mean my destruction.

Use an excuse if you'd rather not open the whole alcoholic issue right now, but say no.

but the problem is that right now I feel like I really WANT it. I want to not want it right now. I need to not want it right now.
