I am great friends with a group of girls who enjoy getting together for Happy Hour, at least once a week. I enjoy their company and I don't want them to stop inviting me but I have lost interest in drinking. I don't want to bite my tongue so I will say that I might have one margarita on date night with my hubby, which only happens once in a blue moon...any advice? Do you believe that my only solution is to find a new group of friends who do not like to drink?

If you still want to go with them, just go and order a coke or something. If somebody says anything just say you are not in the mood for a drink, just good company. You don't have to explain anything really. ;o)

Yeah, it doesn't have to be an issue...just order a coke or something like the above poster said.. if confronted, it may be hard to not come off as self righteous, people who drink can take offense when you don't join them, just tell them you're having fun and drinking makes you feel like crap the next day so you'd rather pass, try not to make a thing of it so they don't feel criticized for their decision to drink...to each her own.
