First off HELLO TuD friends. I haven't been on here since August 2009!! I feel terrible. How is everyone doing?
Okay so I am approaching the age of legal drinking. I can be honest I have drank before but I never did it responsibly. I would ignore what my sugar levels were doing and just did what I wanted. Well for the past year now I have been keeping my levels great and I haven't allowed myself to slip up at all. And since I will be 21 in January I would like to have a legal drink in a bar with my family since we have a tradition that on the 21st birthday of anyone in the family everyone goes to dinner and the birthday person has one of their parents buy their first drink and then everyone (of legal age) does a shot with the birthday person.(not like each person does an individual shot with the person. everyone orders a shot at the same time and take one)
My mom and I have been talking about it for a while now about how we will handle my 21st. I don't want to do the whole get piss drunk thing but I do want to have a drink and a shot with my family.
Does anyone know how to properly have an alcoholic drink and still keep a good eye on their sugar levels?
Please help if you can.
