Be a Sober Party Animal!
First and foremost, if you're going to a party, expect everyone to offer you a drink. To make sure you're able to keep your hands occupied, keep a disguised drink in your hand at all times. If you're at a bar, have the bartender pour you a club soda with a lime. If you're at a house party, keep a red solo cup filled with a dark beverage or other drink that looks similar to beer. This will keep people from pressuring you to drink.
If people assume you're drinking you can have a great time without worrying about others bothering you, wondering why you aren't drinking. And, if they think you're drinking, you can be free to act crazy and wild like the rest of them - just without alcohol!
For those that aren't comfortable with being the party animal without alcohol or drugs, there are ways to have fun as well.
Have your own substance abuse free party! This is a great way to make sure you control the environment and make sure there's no drugs or alcohol involved!
Research "Clean Fun". There are several social clubs and activities that you can do now without worrying about drugs or alcohol. These clubs are fun, clean and have a zero tolerance. Do a Google search for these types of clubs in your area!
Keep a positive group of sober friends with you. Even if you're uncomfortable with venturing out to a party with drugs or alcohol, give it your best shot with people you know will be supportive and positive. Have fun and don't worry about what others think!
Be as goofy and carefree as those who are drinking too much. We all know that having too much to drink can result in goofy actions. Why not join in and have a blast, sans alcohol? No one will be the wiser! They'll assume you're drinking too and won't harass you to take a drink.
We hope these tips help you become a party animal without drinking or using drugs! Do you have any other tricks you use while out with others to avoid drinking? Share your tips in the comments!
