    Currently in Day 9 and I’m bracing myself for difficult weeks ahead.

    One of the toughest obstacles to deal with are other people who during social gatherings notice I’m not drinking and ask why? Isn’t this the epitome of a rhetorical question?

    My initial response is never good enough and before you know it, I’m being asked to loosen up and have a drink.

    Many times the situation escalates to a point where I’m defending myself.

    Why do intelligent adults that choose to imbibe insist that everyone around should be drinking with them?

    Instead, these people should respect my decision not to drink.

    I just don’t get it.
