    Becoming more social and alcohol

    Shop Now
    My coworkers and I are getting a lot more social now that we've been working together for a while and they want to start going out once or twice a week. I don't want to bust $10 on a glass of shitty wine every time, and I'm concerned about the liver thing, especially since I drink wine several times a week now with the new bf. Any tips for navigating through this? I have a lot of activated charcoal pills...

    It's also delicious with tequila every once in a while I just turned 21, and I'm giving myself a free pass for alcohol for a bit as long as I can avoid sugary mixers.

    Don't give in to the pressure if you don't feel like drinking, they should understand, I trust you're not working with teenagers.

    Virgin Bloody Mary. It's a drink and a salad all in one.

    Mmm I do like tomato juice. Does anybody find these drinks really salty though?

    Add hot sauce... then "it's a drink and a salad, and a party, all in one!
    My preference is for a big ol' pour of Tabasco Chipotle in there.

    I can't drink them out... as they are salty. I drink the "low sodium" at home... it's a great source of potassium too.

    Most people are fine if others don't drink so don't over think it. If someone does go on about it they probably have a problem with alcohol themselves so it's not a reflection on you. My own experience is that most people don't notice you drinking a non alcoholic drink and after one or two sessions won't even think about it. Some might even secretly envy your willpower.

    Good point, jo. I will just order a bunch of virgin drinks. Probs won't go for the tomato juice, though, even if it sounds really tasty >_<

    Yup. Virgin drinks.. Some are quite nommy.

    Or If you do want something alcoholic what about cider ? (no wheat)
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.
