I think this is probably one part of the treatment in which a very independent personality would work well. Even before I started the treatment, I always figured it’s no body’s business what I eat or what I choose to drink. Even at this point, after one cup of coffee first thing in the morning, all I drink the remainder of the day is water. People are forever telling me to order this or that when I go out, but I simply say, “I prefer water, thanks” and they generally leave me alone afterwards.
Be your own person and do what suits you and not the people you’re with. You can still be a good friend without adhering to their eating and drinking habits.
