    I have been out to BBQ's, friends partys, away for the weekend and out for a meal but not out on the town normally I am the big drinker and soul of the party but as I am not drinking I am not sure who its going to go. I know I can still have a laugh but I know it won't be the same.

    TBH, I don't tell anyone there's no vodka in my tonic..... and people think I'm p!ssed anyway!!! :party0036:

    I really really don't need a drink to have a good time, and if you go out and concentrate on having fun instead of getting drunk, you'll find that you don't miss the drink after all!
    :party0023:

    Good luck with your night out, I'm sure that it'll be enlightening, esp, if you usually the one who's most drunk... it'll give a a chance to see what everyone else really does when they've a skin full!!!

    I'm with Ali on this. I went out last week and just drank water. I still had a great time and was able to watch everyone else making fools of themselves. I was in control and it felt good. Just as good as if I'd had a glass of Rose in my hand to be honest. I also then watched my friend eat chips afterwards and it didn't even bother me. It made me feel strong.

    Hope you have a great time!

    Enjoy your night out, I was always hesitant first time round but I get to act the eejit in a controlled way rather than a drunken one and since then I enjoy a sober night out!

    well its was a great night i loved the fact I went out with a fiver and came back with it as everyone else bought me my sparkling water for driving. we got in about 1am and a good time was had by all being able to jump in my car instead of waiting in taxi que for hours was excellent. And as reject doll said I felt so strong by not drinking or having subway woohoo me!!!!

    So glad you had a good time. It's quite liberating isn't it knowing you are in control and having the willpower not to be tempted when all around you are drinking or eating?

    aahh cheers charlie I am proud of me too lol
    I find that its being prepared is half the battle I have ended up eating nothing all day at BBQs before as I have forgotten bars or shakes
    I am nearing my 12th week and kind of looking forward to a meal in the eve
