What to say to Alcohol Pushers from Guest Blogger Jordan

Alcohol Pushers

Hi friends! Have you ever noticed how many people try to push drinking onto their friends?!

You’d be more fun if you drank! | How to Internally Handle the Statement “You’d be more fun if you drank!”

Choosing not to drink

“You’d be more fun if you drank!” “Come on, just one!” “It’s not gonna kill ya to have a drink.” “Don’t be a baby!” We’ve all had that friend (or non-friend) push and push and push us to take that shot, drink that cocktail, or have that glass of wine–but enough is enough. We don’t have to do it. We don’t have to because we work the next day. We don’t have to because we want to stay on track with our nutrition. We don’t have to because we’re moms who have responsibilities. We don’t have to because we don’t
