Our expert says:
Its still really controversial, the issue of whether it is possible for an alcoholic to resume "social drinking" without sinificant mishap ; and as to whether it is wise to even try. Perhaps also it's a misfortune related to how much socially for many people socializing and being friendly centers around a bar or at least drinks, that it is easy for one to feel uncomfortable if one sticks to non-alcoholic drinks ( and usually the selection of what's available is lousy !) And when one has carefully and wisely built a new habit of NOT drinking, its not surpising that one feels uneasy and perhaps also guilty when on drinks again.
Sounds like you're managing the drinking reasonably so far
