Highlights of How To Stay Alcohol Free At A Bachelor Party
I get this question all the time and it is about those weekends that historically we have just centered around alcohol. Like bachelor parties, bachelorette parties, hen weekends, etc. So how do you stay alcohol free at a bachelor party, bachelorette party, or a weekend away with friends?
- Do not abdicate your power upfront. It’s so easy to give our power up front not realizing there’s lots of humans who don’t drink at all. So many times in history where people haven’t been drinking, where it hasn’t been such a vital part of things.
- Give yourself the permission to do what you want to do – like stay alcohol free at a bachelorette party – instead of just upfront abdicating it. I know that sounds like a small thing but it’s really a big thing to believe in yourself.
- As human beings we live by firm decisions. That actually shuts off the part of our brain that’s going back and forth and back and forth. I know for me when I make a decision about something I actually feel a lot of peace.
