3 recommendations on how to refuse an offer to drink


Too many people who want to refrain from drinking alcohol are faced with the fact that it is extremely difficult to refuse alcohol in a company. The problem is compounded by the fact that all attempts to give up alcohol are met with sincere misunderstanding. But do not forget that every person has the right to refuse - no one should abuse alcohol just because the rest of the company drinks. Remember, saying “no” to companions is easier, the more often they hear it from you.

1. Know in advance about company preferences

The main thing that you should do is to foresee ways of rest of this or that company in advance. Surely, it will not be a revelation for you that you can talk with some people until the morning for a cup of aromatic coffee, and with others - even a half-hour meeting will end with a beer and chips. And in the second option, as a rule, your refusal can cause a real quarrel or a long insult. It is important to determine what is more important for you - conversation or walking. If a person persuades you to drink alcohol, and then angrily reacts to your refusal, think about whether it is important for him to communicate with you or is he just looking for an excuse to put himself and you intoxicated.

2. Be firm

The second point worth paying attention to is the firmness of your positions. If you do not succumb to temptations and persuasion, then after a few phrases on the theme of the well-known “respect - not respect”, the company will still leave you alone. Otherwise, you will have a reason to think about the attitude of your friends to you.

3. Get away from insults and persuasion

An equally important point is avoiding a quarrel by any means. In order not to spoil your relationship with others who want to supply your body with alcohol at any cost, your best bet will be your original lie. For example, say that you are taking medications that are incompatible with alcohol, you are allergic, have a business meeting, you cannot leave your car, and you are planning some important trip after meeting with friends. It is unlikely that someone will check your health with alcohol, and every person can have important meetings. But clarification of the emphasis on such situations at the very beginning of the feast will be the best way to avoid resentment and persuasion.
