I live in a college town, and while I finished college a while ago, the lifestyle is way too easy to keep on living here. As I am a bartender who is a recovering alcoholic, my social circle is a group of people who drink as a normal part of their day, other bartenders, mostly. While there are rarely any who don't understand when I explain what I'm doing, there are a few who can't handle this choice for progression in my life. Does it make them feel better about drinking when they try to push it on me? I'm polite and refuse, but I found it unsettling when a friend actually got angry. Like I threw our friendship off course. Other another note, how do I deal with cutting these friendships out in order to be a healthy person?
