Much like food, alcohol is interwoven in our parties, football games, relaxation and gift-giving. Many people drink more than usual during the holidays simply became it is there. Others drink to be "sociable" or to feel com- fortable within a group. For most, it is very diffictdt to muster up the courage to ask for a 7-UP with a twist of lemon rather than an alcoholic drink. If this is you, touch base with the following an- swers to the question: ~ouid you h~e a drink?" Say "No" "No, thanks." Say "no" only one more time than asked. Give reason/excuse "No, I'm driving," or "I can't drink and make it to work tomor- row." Change subject "Forget it. Let's go see a movie." Walk away "No, thanks (walk away). I'm going to (state "activity). You can join me later if you're up to it." Reverse pressure "No. You know I can't drink anymore. I thought you were my friend." Avoid situation Stay away from people, places and get-togethers that are con- nected with drinking.
