Responding to a person who felt pressure from his friends to have a drink!
One of the things I did when I decided to get sober (July 3 will be 6 months) was to choose a new circle of friends, ones that did not drink. The people who drink can really exert pressure on you to drink (they don't want to have you be the "odd man out."
And another thing is to develop the ability to say, "No, thank you, but thanks for asking." In that way, you are making "saying no" and doing so in a tactful way.
And concerned about becoming violent; that just makes sense! More fights and scuffles occur during drinking and drugging than in any other way!
Nancy Reagan used to have a one-liner that was priceless: "Just say 'no'."
