I have been dating my boyfriend for almost a year, the longest relationship I have ever had and my first sober one since getting back on the wagon a year ago. We went to a party Saturday night and I was incredibly uncomfortable. The whole focus of the party was getting drunk and the hostess offered me drinks as well as her boyfriend(he's my boyfriend's roommate). I do not care to socialize with my boyfriend's roommate because I fear he is an alcoholic and that's the last person I need to be around. My boyfriend just wants me to get out of the house more and socialize with other people. I am tired of his insensitivity towards my addiction. Every socialization involves alcohol. I do not fear he has a drinking problem, yet he doesn't understand mine. I am wondering if other people here have any advice. I have not had a problem dating people who drink every once in a while in the past, but he's a grad student and we live in a college town. Drinking is a HUGE part of the culture.
