I'm not an alcoholic or anything, though I would be lying if I said it doesn't aid me in social situations. I love to go out with my friends but if its somewhere crowded with a lot of new people, I find myself, HAVING to drink in order to loosen up and be less shy to avoid feeling like an awkward idiot. It's not like I get completely 'off my face' but it does take a few for me to come out a bit more. If I don't drink, I can't really comfortably hold conversations with people I don't know. I can't make decent eye contact or dance or even smile at strangers. It sounds so pathetic, I know. Does anyone else here do the same? Have you found any other ways to relax yourself around other people? Sometimes I just don't feel like a drink but if I don't, I wont have as good of a time or people will misinterperate my shyness for being rude or snobby.
