So have you 'wrecked it' in the past? I've done a few things in my time. Had family coming to stay one year. they were on their way when I sent texts to say I could not cope and could not have them! Got myself onto the mental health ward by being depressed and suicidal. That was another year though. I locked the doors on my family to keep them out. Well even now they do not seem to understand my limitations.

That would have been my question too, do you 'wreck it' every year or is it just this feeling that you might?

When I get worried or paranoid about things I ask myself what does history tell me? If history tells you that previous Christmas holidays have been fine then most likely this one will be too.

It's ok to not drink at Christmas, I haven't drank since 1999 because I did stupid things whilst drunk. Or perhaps have just the one glass with dinner?

Do you feel pressure to join in and drink?

Well I'm not sure I agree with this. I think it's ok to have a drink. But avoid drinking too much.

Make sure you eat.
Drink low alcohol drinks, go 1 for 1 = 1 low alcohol drink then 1 non alcoholic drink.

A bit of self control is all thats required. If you can't control yourself with alcohol it can indicate you may have a drinking problem.

Don't drink on Xmas day? Try doing that in Australia :beermug::santa::rofl2:

I currently don't drink either
I tend to feel really bad later on after drinking
on a downer
and I don't need alcohol to have a good time

I feel the same. I always feel down a day or two later. Alcohol's a known depressant. It's the main reason I hardly drink at all these days. And when I do, it's not much.
