I used to drink about a fifth of Bourbon a week. Not as much as some people but I think it's a lot. It was making me gain a lot of weight, and I felt like ****. I've had some scare with my health, which made me quit drinking entirely a couple of weeks ago. In that time, I've been working out hard almost every single day, eating MUUUUCH healthier and without the booze, I'm down several pounds. My clothes are much looser on me, my stomach is shrinking, I feel great. I still fight the urge to run into the kitchen and pour myself a drink. I'd love to. But I know it's a slippery slope that I'm fighting and I want to lose weight, get healthy and my doc told me to cut the drinking out and I am listening. I work in a small office of about 12 people. I got transferred there after budget cuts eliminated my old job. My new office is EXTREMELY tight-knit and party together. Everything for them is a game or teamwork or hanging out, drinking and partying. For the Christmas party, we apparently are playing a beer drinking game and other drinking games, blah blah blah. I don't know what to do. I don't want to be the "wet blanket" there. But I don't want to drink any more. I of course, don't want to just sit there and make things awkward, nor do I want to no-show. Any advice would be appreciated.
