Stick to Your Guns

Dear Short Answers:
Over the last few years, I’ve probably started to drink a bit more than I should so I decided to designate Monday and Wednesday as my “non-drinking” days.  It doesn’t seem necessary to tell this to people in advance so if I’m out somewhere and other people are drinking, I just get a diet soda.  My abstinence is met with shock and dismay that somehow I have disappointed them because I’m not the “life of the party” anymore.  I guess I was more fun when I drank more but I’m sticking to my plan.  Do I start staying home on Monday and Wednesday?

Dear Trying:
If you think you are drinking too much you probably are and “friends” who are not supportive of your efforts to dial back are not friends. Find others.
