I'm done with drinking for a while, as much as I love drinking socially after improv stuff. I'm trying to lose some weight, so until I get to my target weight, I'm gonna take it easy. |
Although, when I say I'm done drinking, what I mean is:
* I'm done drinking in TEXAS. I reserve the right to drink like a fiend when on a trip, or at a festival, or oh, say, in Hawaii.
* I also reserve the right to drink one of the 6 Magners ciders currently residing in my fridge at any time I like. I brought those babies back from Boston.
No big deal. I just thought I'd mention it in public so I didn't immediately decide it was a stupid idea.
Hurry up and lose a few more pounds so we can get drunk on a Casino burger.
My experience of spending a year on the wagon (inoculating myself against unemployment-induced alcoholism) showed it's quite possible to avoid drinking alcohol in a bar while still having a good time with people who do. Problem is, you usually end up drinking something just as fattening.
My goal was to avoid an affliction rather than a gut so I'd have root beer, cranberry juice, or tonic water; the latter two might work out for you or maybe club soda if you're into that.

Tonic water's been my drink of choice since I've cut back on drinking (alcohol hasn't treated me well lately for some reason)
I can vouch for club soda. Put a wedge of lime in it and it looks like a cocktail.
You mean to start after this weekend, right?
Why'd you bring magner's from Boston? Don't they have that at the whip in?
Yes, they do. We like going through unnecessary trouble to have a drink.
Yep, though not as often as I'd like.
Go! Make yourself. Even when you don't feel like it. You always feel better afterwards.
