    Should I refuse my boss when he asks me to drink during official parties?

    I am working in an automobile company. We have many official parties . Whenever we have such a party, our boss forces all the employees to drink. But I donít have the habit of drinking. I have made many excuses for getting out of this before. But should I refuse him in the future? Please guide me in the right direction.

    As you have said that you are not in a habit of drinking, you are not doing any mistake.

    Many people don't drink due to various reasons like there beliefs or due to health issues.

    Making excuses will not serve the purpose, because every time you will be asked you will have to give some excuse.

    Instead try to have a permanent solution for it.

    If you can speak than convey him directly that you cannot drink because you think you cannot handle it or due to your beliefs.

    No one will force you to drink if don't want to, so don't be afraid and be clear.

    Yes , you should politely refuse to drink if you are not comfortable with it. But may be sometimes it looks rude and imprudent to refuse to have drink when asked by your seniors. So you should at least hold the glass for them and do not consume the drink completely. You should at least give them a company in a party. You should not refuse them bluntly on their face but should have a very careful use of words.

    don't change your habits for others you should have some principles that guide your characters because when you have learnt good morals and manners and do's and don't's then if you differentiate what is good and bad for you then you need to stick to your moral and also need to adopt it for rest of your life.. drinking is harmful for your health when your forces you don't succumb under pressure don't compromise on discipline and habits that too good one's

    Hi,

    Yes , it is okay if you refuse your boss for not drinking.If you do not drink and do not like to then you must not drink.Do not change yourself for your boss. In future you can surely refuse to drink.Do not start drinking under pressure just stay cool and avoid drinking.You can also avoid such parties sometimes.


    And drinking is not a good habit which one should develop.So it is right to avoid and refuse for the same.You have a good habit of not drinking.And just maintain it.Do not start it and make bad habit which could harm your health.

    Just make it clear to your boss that you will never ever drink in future also.So it would be better if he does not force you or even tell you to drink.So, there will be permanent full stop for your chances to drink. And also no one will say anything to you about it.If they will say it will be good only.

    hello..

    my better advice is don't change your character not only for your boss for nobody also..

    there may be a chance for that.he may refuse you due to this also..but it is not a good thing..

    better you can avoid such parties,so that the relationship between you and your boss is discontinued in such problems.

    if you do whatever saying your boss you can get good name but in real life not good...

    thank you..

    Sure , this is ok in the event you turn down your employer for not drinking.If you do not beverage and you should not just like to then you must not drink.Do not really adjust all by yourself on your boss. From now on you'll be able to definitely refuse to drink.Do not really begin consuming under pressure just simply be awesome and steer clear of drinking.You could also prevent such gatherings sometimes.

    In addition to consuming will be a bad behavior which in turn you need to develop.So it is actually directly to prevent plus turn down for your same.You have a great habit of not really drinking.And just simply retain it.Do not really begin this and earn poor behavior which may hurt your health.

    Just simply let them know for your leader you won't ever ever beverage in future also.So it could be improved when he does not drive a person and even tell you to help drink.So, you will see long lasting full halt on your possibilities to help drink. And also no one will express everything for your requirements about it.If they're going to express it'll be excellent only.
    do not make positive changes to behaviors for some individuals you should have many key points that will guide your people simply because in case you have learnt excellent ethics plus etiquette plus do's plus don't's then if a person separate what the heck is bad and good with regard to you then you should adhere to your that means plus also need to follow this with regard to rest of your life.drinking hurts to improve your health once your forces you won't falter under pressure do not skimp upon willpower plus behaviors that too excellent one's.
    you'll want to with good grace refuse to beverage if you're not happy with it. Yet may be at times it's impolite plus hasty to help turn down to own beverage any time requested through your seniors. Which means you will need to at the least contain the goblet for these people and you should not take the drink completely. You'll want to at the least give them a firm inside a party. You can't turn down them bluntly on their deal with nonetheless will need to have a very thorough use of words.

    Dear if drinking is not in your habit from starting then you can refuse anyone about this when they force you to drink alcohol because you have never drunk in your life and if someone wants you to drink while official parties or any other occasion then you will feel bad that someone is forcing you because personal life is personal and profession is at its place so you should keep enough distance in both of these parts of your life and keep away from drinking if you do no want to be involved

    If you join party and your boss force you to drink then you should respectively say to your boss that I am really sorry to say sir that I do not drink at all and this is my habit from childhood and if I will drink then I will get sick because of the side effect and reaction of this thing that is why you can have a drink with other employees but please do not force me to be into this and if you will request then your boss will definitely not force you to do that

    If you take some soft drinks then you can have but strictly should be so far from alcohol because you should not make this as your habit in life because this shows carefulness every time in our life and try to keep enough distance from those employees who wants you to drink while parties and when you go then you should take interest in having dinner and other cold drinks etc. and if you will be busy then you will not face the same problem again

    All the best
