One difficulty my boyfriend and I had trouble with was going to bars. They played a major role in his social life. Plus, he loves to play pool and played it there. We would try to limit ourselves to only a couple, but that worked 10% of the time. Two beers usually turned into 5+ along with shots. In December we decided to quit drinking entirely. Because he still wanted to go to the bars, though, he began only drinking Coors NA and O'Doul's. Luckily, it's been a success. Both of us haven't drank now. I think the social life bars have to offer makes it difficult for some people to quit, but this offered an alternative way to continue going but still be sober. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
