    What to do in a party if want to avoid the hard drinks?

    I have joined the corporate world few months back. Every year the company organises party in which all employees are called. Hard drinks is a usual thing in it. I do not want to consume hard drinks at all. But it becomes really awkward when the situation arises before high profile officers and boss as almost all consumes it. So,what should I do in those situations?Is it better to say a direct no or give some excuse?

    Dear Friend!

    Of Course! You can say directly "NO" I don't take hard drink or You can take cold drink in place of hard drink to avoid the situations. Because every body force to any body to take hard drink and enjoy the situation. So it is not possible for anyone to avoid this if you request from them or give some excuse, Please say directly "NO" then no any body force you to hard drinks.

    Hi friend,

    Say No directly. Don't hesitate to say No. Don't influenced by others. If you do like that you will loose your character.

    In those parties it is quite common to take hard drinks. So to get out of the situation you can opt for cold drinks. Be what you will be.

    Hope this helps you.

    Hello friend............

    This is very common thing in every company.If you dont want hard drinks then strictly said that No if you give some excuse then it will cause next time so this is better that you strictly said that you not want to drink but if they force you so much then it is better to leave this place and go to other side.But if dont want to do this then you can take a glass always in your hand and tried to speak them that you drink.Hope this will help you .

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    It is evident that these type of situations will crop up in official parties.Ethically speaking nobody has the right to force you to have a drink.Now in a party where every one is having a drink they will insist you to go for it.If you have the guts then say NO on their face.If you are asked the reason then say that you have health reasons.If you cant say no,then take a drink,pretend that you are having it,little by little pour it somewhere else.But be careful while doing so.You have two options in your hand,now choice is yours.

    Hello,

    The best option for you would be to say "NO" so that your friends will not offer you drinks in the next time.
    This is a very common phenomenon in corporate world. If you are not interested in hard drinks then let it be
    known to your circle of friends. You can always take soft drinks in favour of hard ones. It's your choice of preference
    and don't get influenced by others. A diplomatic approach would be the best option for you to tackle such situation.

    Bye,

    Dear making excuses is not the solution of any problem in the world because after making any type of excuse you also will not feel good because you know that the second or third person will not be happy with your behavior that is why you need to be candid and you need to be frank in your attitude then only you will get rid of this problem and when you do not wants to consume hard drinks in any type of parties then you may directly say to your colleagues and to your senior officers that - Thanks for this but i do not drink at all but do not mention so many things behind this because it may cause any problem in party that is why you should enjoy with all of your company authorities and when they ask you for drink then you may directly and respectively tell to them that you do not drink and if they force you then only you should accept for a small soft drink to save yourself from hard drink and if possible then try to be away from this thing because this thing is really destructive and have destroyed so many lives that is why avoid it

    All the best

    Dear Aspirant,

    Of course it is true that taking hard drink is not good for health,but if you dont have allergy to it,you can accompany others colleagues by taking the quantity as per Dr. advice,i.e may be 20 to 30 ml.

    But if it is totally prohibited,You can say No,pretending it is allergical to you.Party with hard drinks has become a fashion in the modern time.

    If you decided to be away from it ,it is your good decision & keep it up.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Hello

    If you want to avoid hard drinks in a party then be straight forward and dare to say NO

    If you dont want to drink then no one an force you.

    It is completely your wish if you want to drink or not.

    So even if anyone ask you you can politely refuse them.

    It will not put you out of the crowd.

    Thank you

    Dear,
    Yes ,it is difficult to say NO to your higher dignities but according to me one should live according to himself................
    One will be more happy if he/she live according to his will not on others way. Of course there are many way to say NO that also not feel bad to your boss.....
    According to me you should make them aware about the adverse effect of drinking but in such a way that does not know who has doing that i.e by sending letter containing photo, movies , email etc and as the time come you can reveal your name...........

    Hiii,
    Its a kind of sensitive situation to handle, when your seniors and boss expect you to become friendly by having a drink or so with them, but you can't actually do so. Don't worry and act maturely, its perfectly okay if you do not consume hard drinks, because in some societies it is considered morally incorrect, but what you can do is to hold the glass of wine and give your seniors a company. Holding a glass and giving company won't harm any morality. Don't necessarily have the drink but you should give them a company because this is the time when you can create personal bonds with them aand definitely personal bonds are better than the professional ones

    Re: What to do in a party if want to avoid the hard drinks?

    Hello sir
    I my point of view you should avoid this type of parties as you said you are not drink and if your boss if forced to you to come in the party then clearly said to your boss then your co employee that there is no habit of my to drink in the parties after all itís all about your dignity. So in my point of view you should ignore these types of parties as far as possible.
    Thanking you hopes you like my suggestionÖ.

    Obviously if you dont drink then proudly say that i dont drink instead of shying and feeling hesitate!
    Learn to say NO as you should never go for anything which is either not right or is been not allowed by your inner conscious. Drinking is not a a high profile practice. and if you fall into a situation where your seniors offer you to drink then better before confronting them you carry most of the time a glass of any soft drink or the juice .
    And if possible leave the party before you feel the atmosphere is getting warm with the over of liquor.

    thank you

    Dear Friend,
    It is truly a very intense situation. In front of all the senior officers and your employee it is not alway possible to make excuses at the time.

    In corporate world hard drinks are very common during parties.

    There are two options for you:-

    You can say NO to them directly but there is a bit problem since your boss may want you to be friendly. If you say No directly it may be disappointing to him, which will not be good for you in your career.

    Else you may take a glass of drink and give them company. It is not mandatory to drink it. find a suitable time any get rid of the glass.

    In this cases excuses wont do at all. You should handle the situation rationally.

    Hi,

    It's not a crime to say "no" to hard drinks in the parties. Please take this out of your mind and start refusing hard drinks with great dignity and confidence. Go for soft drinks instead and try socialising with your friends cum colleagues. Enjoy on the dance floor, talk to everyone but do not take hard drinks if you do not want to. No one can force you to do any work, its you who has to decide. Just remain confident in whatever you say and do.

    Thanks,
    Ritz

    dear guest!!!
    alcohol is dangerous is for the health.if you don't take it then it is a matter of pride for you.
    but simultaneously you are a professional.so,direct rejection can affect you because seniors may consider it as insult.
    so,in my view you should politely refuse for it.
    also there may be soft drinks.so,you may take soft drinks.
    so,being a professional you should always take care of your seniors.
    it does not mean that you should do wrong things but in rejection politeness should be there.
    thank you !!

    Hi
    In any part or in any occasion, if you do not drink, then there would be so many people trying to make you drink.
    But it is upto your will that whether you want to take it or not. Whenever someone offers you the drink, then you should request humbly that Iím sorry I donít drink.
    Now if he insists then you should tell him I donít drink and then you should move away from that guy. Soon it will be figured out by all the people that you donít drink and eventually people will stop asking you for having a drink.
