As a recovering alcoholic, you can expect a lifetime of people asking you what you want to drink. Most of the time they are not being rude, they probably just do not know. It can be frustrating and even overwhelming at first, but there are plenty of ways to say no to alcohol without being rude or having to dive into your life’s story.
There are a million ways to say no to alcohol or to turn down a drink, but as a recovering alcoholic, it may not always seem so easy. Knowing how to turn down a drink from a friend and knowing how to say no to alcohol at a party can be two very different things. To help you through any and all of these scenarios, our Pompano drug treatment center has compiled a list of some easy ways to turn down alcohol as a recovering alcoholic.
Be prepared for some possible push back from some people but remember to stay true to yourself. Don’t let a little pressure ruin everything you have worked so hard for.
