i know that's hard. it's so easy to say don't drink, but it's no fun being the only sober one! and i don't know about your friend, but if one of my friends had asked me to quit drinking and do something else back in the day i would've been like yeah right! unless she's overweight, too? if she is, and you can convince her to be your weight loss buddy she might go for that. i know i was ALWAYS willing to start a new diet without much persuasion. then, you guys could hang out, watch movies, and munch on 100 calorie popcorn packs instead of drinking lol!
