I was just wondering if any of you had any good excuses for not drinking when out socially with friends?
I work on a boat and also socialize with the people on the boat and we are coming to the end of a extremely busy charter season and we have been working about 60 days straight with 6 more days to go and all everyone can talk about it going out partying at the end of it. I am giving up alcohol while we are TTC just in case and especially over the next couple of weeks as AF is due on Sept 4 and I won't be able to test until at least then but the first couple of days of Sept is when everyone is going to want to go out.
I can't use the designated driver excuse as none of us have cars and I can't use the other plans excuse as we are constantly moving around so it is not like I could be going out with other friends or something. I have been trying to think of a plausible excuse for the last couple of weeks as I knew this was going to happen but so far the best I can come up with is that I am tired and head home early but then there is still dinner to get through without any drinks. I am not a huge drinker anyway so it is not like it is really out of character for me but I do often have a drink or two with dinner so they will wonder why especially since we will all be celebrating.
I am worried that someone might guess that we are TTC as worst case scenario it is possible that we could lose our jobs if everyone found out and even if that didn't happen I just don't want everyone to know that we are TTC.
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated :)
