It's easy to forget that alcohol ruins lives when you're out drinking and having a good time, and the more drinks you've had the easier it is to act like an inconsiderate jerk towards those struggling with alcoholism.
Of course, if that struggling someone is hanging out in a bar or club then act as you will, but if your friends are staying sober at someone's house then you should show them you respect their sobriety.
Here are some of the dumbest things you can say to someone choosing to stay sober:
17. "Your not drinking makes it hard for me to relate to you." Try to get to know me, and I'm pretty sure you'd relate somewhere.
18. "You must have so much dirt on everyone, watching us sober." Of course, my favorite hobby is to collect blackmail and is the sole reason I don't drink. Actually, I'm not judging. Please stop judging me.
19. "You must be so against this stuff." Just because I don't want to have a drink doesn't means I'm against alcohol entirely and think it's the worst thing. It's wonderful for people who enjoy it. I just happen not to.
20. "I don't drink that much usually! Really!" You don't have to justify your drinking to me just because I'm not.
