Usually, when I go out to socialise the first thing I'll do is grab a drink to ease the anxiety and have a 'good time'.

Today I don't want any when I go out for dinner, well not to start with anyway. Maybe I've reached a new low. Alcohol isn't helping me when I go out.

This is a first. I'm not an alcoholic at all, but it just became routine to go out and have one, but even now I just want to get through the evening quietly.

Alcohol is fucking terrible for you. I'm proud of you.

I'm glad that you're not going out to drink. Alcohol doesn't fix anything, sometimes it 'makes things better' for a very short period, but after that things are worse.
