My husband and I are not big drinkers.  We will have an occasional drink now and then, and that’s about it.  I personally have never understoood the fascination with alcohol and getting/being drunk.  How is that even fun?  

Anyway, I don’t really have any advice, except perhaps to say, “There is a history of alcohol abuse in the family and we prefer not to have it around.”

I agree with Miss Apricot. It just takes one sentence to sum it up. In the future, I’d keep the gatherings short and sweet.

If you are an adult, how do you succumb to peer pressure? Just say NO thank you and leave it at that. No explanations or excuses should be necessary.

Many people attend parties and BBQ’s bearing gifts of wine, beer, etc. I don’t find it rude.
