Interested in people's experience with quitting alcohol or at least moderating alcohol intake and how that affected their social lives. I'm a moderate drinker but at the same time love my fitness and exercise so i usually drink a lot less than my entourage and friends which have always been a contention point... Most weeks i drink 4-6 drinks at most usually in one sitting and sometimes go for weeks without it. I also get hammered once or twice a year if the occasion is there ... Every time i try and go cold turkey in order to take my fitness seriously or simply because i don't feel like drinking at the time, i get socially isolated by friends and usually i kind of succumb to the pressure and drink again but i'm kind of over it and feel that i'm at a point where i'm simply going to let these friendships fadeaway due to the above. Talking about it doesn't seem to get me anywhere. I feel bad about ending a friendship over such a banal issue but at the same time feel like being pressured to drink is just not acceptable. Anyone else been in such a situation before?
