Responses When People Ask About Alcohol

I’d love to know what you say when you first tell people that you don’t drink. I’ve chosen to stop drinking for good (so thrilled!) but I’m curious to know what you say at first? And then how do you speak about your choice and all the benefits and joy that comes with it, without putting drinkers on the spot. My experience has been that even just saying I I’m not drinking at that event (ie not even saying I’ve given up for good) puts some people on edge. Having read This Naked Mind, I understand that it is confronting for some people and yet I really really want to let my friends and family know how amazing life can be alcohol-free!
