I'm sick of being under fire everytime I have a drink of alcohol.
I had 2 drinks the other night. Not even drinks. Just wine. 2 glasses of a fine australian shiraz.
He's harping on me that I stink of alcohol and won't kiss me hello. He also won't let me drive his new car because "I'm drunk".
I've had this conversation over and over with him. I maybe drink two times a month tops - usually once if at all. I have never had more than 3 glasses of wine at one sitting since I've dated him.
I'm sick of defending myself against something that doesn't need defending. I've never been a big drinker, never done any drug, usually the first to punk out on a drinking evening in college. Always the first to fall asleep - when everyone used to give me a hard time saying "come on one more shot!" I never did. Just couldn't.
And now... I have a boyfriend who thinks I drink too much?? It seems ironic.
I've told him, that he has to accept that I socially drink every once in a while. I have agreed to not having alcohol in the house - that was fine with me. But, I'm not gonna stop having a nice glass of wine every once in a while just because he used to not be able to control himself.
So what do you say? How do you explain it? How do I make him accept that part of me?
