If you're still reading, I'm going to the Big Ten basketball tournament with some friends tonight who will be drinking, and although I'm like 90% better, I have decided to not partake in "the sauce" tonight to allow myself to recover.
I really do hate not drinking when people around me are drinking, and it got me thinking, is it a worse situation for those who don't ever want to drink or for someone who has just decided that he doesn't want to drink? I have had those friends who come out with everyone to bars, sometimes until four in the morning, and they never drink. How do they do it? I try to be understanding of the fact that when people are schnockered all around me and I'm sober, I have been that bad or likely even worse. Still, I get instantly annoyed and want to drink myself closer to where they're at so I'm not annoyed anymore.
UPDATE: I just finished this post when I got home. I had a beer and a half.
